Atnnnlnsr Frocks Made from Inexpen
sive Materials This Senson.
A little dressmaker by which name
womankind signalises the dressmaker who
has not yet arrived at the distinction of a
smart shop and exorbitant pricee was
talking of the season's modes the other
day, and her point of view being that of
the average woman, commanded attention.
"It has been a long time," she said,
"since there was such opportunity for
smartness at comparatively little expense
as there Is this season.
With a vision of extravagant and per
ishable silken tissues and of lavish hand
embroideries before our eyes, we de
murred, but madame waved our objection
"Oh, I know what you are thinking
about the wonderful embroideries and
hand work. I did not say that the most
extravagant kind of French frock is any
cheuper or Is more easily duplicated than
UBual. A statement of that kind would
be sheer fully.
"But what I did mean was that line
plays a very Important part in the new
modes and that many of the new lines
niOBt favored are easily obtained. I'm
not claiming that I can make even the
simplest kind of bodice look as though It
came from Paquln or that I can hang a
simple skirt as Drecall can, but I've seen
a great many models from famous houses
whose general character I can duplicate
with considerable success, because their
smartness lies in their lines and some little
originality of trimming rather than in
"Take this fad for the aurpllce or V
Bhaped drapery, front and bark. Any
clever aeamstrees can obtain good effects
In that way If she has a good Sketch or
model to follow, and while the shoulder
drapery, kimono sleeve and all that sort
of thing are puxzllng at first, there are
numbers of good patterns for such bodices
and coats now, and when one once under
stands the general principles upon which
such cutting Is done It Is easy to modify
the patterns.
"Gulmpes and undersleeves are matters
of daintiness and hand work more than of
anything else, and there's no excuse for
such clumsy work as many dressmakers of
my class put Into such details. One need
only study the gulmpe and sleeves of good
models In the shops or In French fashion
journals to obtain plenty of Ideas for
such work, and one can pick up quantities
green field. His mouth watered for a
taste of Nebraska's corn. So when he re
ceived his honorable dlscnarge a few days
ago he hied himself westward and made
a bee line for the mayor's office upon reach
ing Omaha Thursday morning.
"I want work, Mr Mayor," was the greet
ing tho boy gave Mayor Jim.
"Would you care to go on the Are depart
ment?" asked the mayor.
"Yes, sir, I would," the boy replied.
"Well, wa will try and get you some
thing to do until there Is an opening on the
fire department," Mayor Dahlman an
swered, and then the mayor wrote a letter
for the boy to an Omaha business man.
Side Boy for Kan.
Stuart was with Bob Evans in many
porta He served the fighting admiral as
"side boy" on many occasions. The Fre
mont lad was In San Francisco harbor lp
the torpedo boat destroyer Perry when
'Frisco was shaken on April 18 last year.
Stuart felt the disturbance while on the
boat. Then ha served L'ncte 8am in San
Francisco for several months after the
earthquake. He has been around the world
in the United States navy. He served his
four years and land never looked better
to him than the sight of Omaha Thursday
morning. Ha said be has seen thn sea and
lae world and would rather fight fires In
Omaha than rove the "raging main" In
the finest battleship afloat. And yet there
are many boys who would rather ply the
teas In a catboat than be a landlubber.
Stuart says he Is home again.
Captain MarLlla Aennllted.
8AN ANTONIO. Tex , May f.-The court,
n.ardal found Captain M-ickllu nut gulty
of little smart wrinkles for girdles and
collars, etc., by going out In search of
such Information.
nlne of t nnsonl Details.
"It Is Just some unusual detail that gives
a shirt waist frock or Jumper frock style,
but the little dressmakers don't hunt for
suggestions of that kind on the swell
frocks. They look at the difficult features
of the extreme models and say, 'Oh, we
can't do that sort of tiling."
"When I go out and see a lovely mod.?l
In costly material, I look It over and de-
clde what I can get out of it. Sometimes
Its very best features can be copied In In
expensive materials, especially now that
there are so many beautiful designs and
colorings In the cheaper stuffs. I've never
had such success with Inexpensive frocks
as I've had this spring, and that's be
cause, as I said at first, so many of the
fashionable Ideas are possible."
All this sounded encouraging, and start
ing out, with the optimistic dressmaker's
view point, we found much to Justify her
optimism. Of course there are models
galore whose construction would send any
one save a French artist dressmaker to a
padded cell, but there are others a host
of others.
In the first place, as our little dress
maker said, look at the surplice bodices,
and a very large percentage of the Im
ported frocks that have such bodices.
There are Innumerable attractive varia
tions upon the trimming of these bodlcea.
Simplest of all Is the binding of liberty
satin or taffeta, or Instead of a binding a
fold laid under the edge of the surplice
material. Often this Is the only trimming
bordering the deep V-shaped opening, and
especially when the frock material is of
stripe or other fancy design the line of
plain satin lying against a dainty gulmpe
of net and lace Is more effective than any
more pretentious trimming would be.
Sometimes the line of satin borders the
outside edge of a band of lace, or perhaps
the material Itself has a border design
and this border Is used to outline the sur
plice, with a fold of satin or of plain tone
moussellne for finish. The bordure frock
pictured In one of the small cuts was an
Imported model from a famous French
house and the material was an exquisite
bordered, silk moussellne of extravagant
price; while the real lace used In gulmpe
and sleeves helped to Justify the J350 asked
for the model; but an extremely pretty, In
expensive frock might be made upon these
same lines by using one of the delightful
bordered cottons or silk and cotton stuffs
and effective French lace of moderate price.
Some of the Models Copied.
The original model had a deep band of
plain black moussellne outside the flowered
border and this black band made a good
finish for the skirt bottom, while narrow
hems of the black outlined the surplice and
were used on the cuff. Where the material
itself has not this black border, the dress
maker often adds It for effect or for prac
tical value, the black on the skirt bottom
staying fresh much longer than the light
flowered border would. When the black or
other dark colored moussellne Is added It
is usually Joined to the flowered border
by a line of Irregular lace set In.
Laferriere has a charming surplice model
In soft blue and white striped radium,
whose surplice folds are bordered simply
by a very narrow fine plaiting of the silk.
This plaiting also borders the folds, which
fall out over a full sleeve of plaited linon
frills, lace edged, and edges the long V
surplice opening of the back, as well as
the rounded sash ends, which are a con
tinuation of the surplice drapery.
A dark blue velvet glrdie passes over
these folds and holds them at the waist
line and the surplice folds in front cross
and fasten to the girdle with linen buttons,
each button having a blue velvet pastille
applied to it. At the top of the girdle and
showing under and slightly beyond the
narrow plaited frills which border the sur
plice are lines of heavy white linen set
with dork blue velvet pastilles.

Objaot it to Enabla Union Paoifio to Hold
Catiida InUratta,
Effort to Remove Prejadlee Excited
br Ten Per Cent Dividend and
Keep Southern Paelflo
. and Atchison.
Plans are being prepared for the forma
tion of a holding company for the stocks
of the Southern Pacific and other roads
whose stock is now in the Union Pacific
treasury. The reasons given for a holding
company are that to increase the dividends
of the stockholders would remove the
prejudice excited by a 10 per cent dividend,
and a holding company would enable tho
Union Pacific to evade the consequences
of any government action to compel it to
dispose of Its Southern Paelflo and Atchison
stock on the ground that such ownership
constituted a combination of competing
roads in violation of the law.
The plan la showing signs of renewed
activity. The assets at present market
prices would be nearly 40.000,000, or $122 a
share of common stock. Eighty dollars a
share has been bid for any amount up to
10,000 shares for certificates (when Issued)
of the talked-of holding company.
It is said on Wall street that the chances
are the holding company would now be a
reality but for the investigations by the
Interstate Commerce commission. The
holding company Idea was based more on
the thought that the Union Pacific was be
coming more of a financial institution than
a railroad.
False Impression Created.
With Union Paelflo common stock earn
ing from 16 per cent to 20 per cent and
paying 10 per cent dividends, a false Im
pression was made on the minds of the
public, and It was decided that it was too
much for a transcontinental line to exact
from its patrona. Efforts were made to
show the Union Paelflo aa a railroad waa
paying but t per cent and the other 4 per
cent was paid from the securities held.
Should a holding company be created out
of the segregated collateral assets of the
Union Pacific It would make one of the
greatest financial Institutions in the world.
The plan was understood to be to capitalise
the holding company -at an amount equal
to the Union Pacific common. Tills would
give each share of the Union Pacific com
mon a share In the holding company.

trade excursion. The movement wus origi
nated In the Commercial club, but the
excursion is not to be made under the
auspices of the club as such, but in the
interests of "Omaha, the market town,"
and Is being sponsored by several of the
representative commercial organizations of
the city.
The excursion is given in the Interests
primarily of the Commercial club, the
Grain exchange, the Real Estate exchange
and the South Omaha Live Stock exchange.
The connection of each of tho3a organiza
tions with the excursion Is being promi
nently advertised and the official booklet
of the excursion, the Itinerary, shows theso
organizations as the mnln participants.
A number of members of the prominent
commission firms of South Omaha will go
on the excursion and It is believed a repre
sentative of each packing firm will par
ticipate. '
Applications for reservations on the train
are being received each day through the
efforts of the hustling committee, which Is
headed by Joe Kelly and Dan Fuller and
the required number of participants to

1 Uhere are hundred of thousands of
people all over this blessed country of
ours who have been cured of obstinato,
chronic diseases through the use of Dr.
Pierce's Medicine arid it Is only natural
that such people should rlnn up and speak
their sentiments pretty freely when Dr.
Pierre and his medicines are so unjustly
These grateful patients of Dr. Pierce
are to be found In almost every hamlet
and country vlllag", and in the farm
houses and mechanics' cottages in every
nook and corner of this creat country.
Common gratluido prompts such people
to stand up and defend Dr. l'lerco and
his medicines against unjust and ma
licious attacks.
Dr. Pierce's Medlclnea have been on
ale In drug stores all over this country
and In many foreign lands for more than
forty years and yet their salo continues
to grow in a substantial and nio-t grati
fying way. This could not be the esse if
they were not remedies of more than
ordinary merit.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription Is not
advertised as a "Cure All " but admirably
fulfills a singleness of purpose, being a
superior and most positive remedy for one
class of diseases only those easily recog
nized weaknesses, derangements. Irregu
larities and painful disorders peculiar to
women. It is a powerful, vet gently act
ing. Invigorating, tonic and strengthening
nervine. For weak, worn-out, over-worked
women no matu-r what has canted
the break-down, whether it be from too
frequent bearing of children or from much
worry, care, or overexertion of any kind.
Favorite Prescription will be found
most efficient In building up the strength,
regulating all the womanly functions,
banishing taln and bringing about a reg
ular and healthy, vigorous condition of
the tsbole female system. Thus It cor
r.vts prolapsus, or falling of womb, retro
version, anteverslon and other displace
ments of the female pelvic orpans, due to
weakness or over enertion, lifting or fa
tiguing over-work. In short, it makrs
weak women strong and sick women well.
As to Dr. Pierce's (Jolden Medical Dis
covery ll has a very laro range of appli
cation, yet it Is by no means recommended
as a "Cure-All. " It posees marvelous
alterative, or blood cleansing, properties
and Is at the same time a most Invigorat
ing tonic, or strength giver. It exerts a
iieclHc, cleansing, soothing and healing
fleet upon all the lining mucous mem
branes of the system; hence. Its great
curative value in all catarrhal affections,

the temporary injunction was Issued and
which were not affected by the recent order.
After Judgo Kennedy hnd Issued his tem
porary order holding the original contruots

penditure of more money than the people
voted for the purpose a meeting of the
council was held at which an offer of t2
180 from the Union Stock Yards company
to pay the deficiency In the amount for the
building of the Mud crock sewer was ac
cepted. The council then proceeded to let
new contracts on the old bids.
Tho attack on the new contract Is mads
by Theodore H. TePoel, a South Omaha
property owner. It is contended there Is a
secret agreement to repay to the Stock
Yards company the $26,000 It has offered to
advance out of the $00,000 additional bonds
