Spring In all lta glory la here at last
and every one seems bent on spending just
ts much time In the country as possible.
LJfe at the clubs stems to have blossomed
out Uke the trees and a delightful In
formality Is In the very atmosphere. It
is a most alluring time with the fields of
wild flowers that one finds Just outside
the city limits and Is suggestive of fresh
ness, warmth and a wholesome newness.
So It Is that society welcomes the' Jolly
hand that slaps the winter formality In
chaos- and gives spring its Inning. The
past week socially has been far from dull.
The most memorable events were the wed
ding of Miss Marlon Hughes and Mr.
George Redlck, the buffet luncheon given
by Mrs.' Harry Burkley on Tuesday end
Wednesday and the debutante luncheon
given by Mrs. Harry P. Whltmore for Miss
Franeea Wessels. The arrival of Mr. and
Mrs. ' Jenness and Miss Jenness of De
troit, Mich., to be the guests of Mr. and
Mrs. C. K. Yost brought forth dlnn-rs,
luncheons and theater Invitations which
will be continued this week. The arrival
of Mrs. Jacobs Friday to be the guest of
Colonel and Mrs. S. S Curtis for a week
will greatly aid In keeping things lively,
and then, the clubs with all of tholr at
tractions make a dull time impossible.

CHANGE IN LAW0F DESCENT
Provisions of Measure Passed by the
Late Nebraska Legla
latnre. Piotably no measure paased by the last
legivlutuie is of more Interest to the wo
mon of Nebraska' than the decedent bill,
or the woman's property rights bill as It
was more generally called. The bill was
pasiicd at the Instance of the club women,
but owing to some amendments tn the
legislature the provisions of the new law
are not generally understood and the fol
loiv.n summary has been prepared by D.
L. Johnson of Omaha, who drafted the
bill, for the benefit of the tnanv women
who have made Inquiry:
The main purpose of the bill was to give
the surviving husband or wife a fee In
terest In the real estate of the other In
stead of a life estate aa under the old
law. Section I of Senate File 73, which"
passed both houses of the lecrlslature end
was signed by the governor, provides aa follows-
(Descent where husband or wife survive)
whon any person shall die, leaving a hus
band or wife surviving, all the real estate
of wblcl. the deceased was Beised of an
estate of Inheritance at any time during
the marriage, or In which the deceased
was possessed of an Interest elthar legal
or equitable at the time of his or her death,
which has not been lawfully conveyed, by
the husband and wife while residents of
this state, or by the deceased while the
husband or wife was a non-reaident of
this state, which has not been sold under
execution or judicial sale, and which has
not been lawfully devised, shall descend
eubjeut to his or her debts and the rlghU
of homestead. In the manner following:
First. One-fourth part to the husband or
wife if the survivor is not the parent of
all the children of the deceased and there
be on or more children, or the Issue of
one or more dec-en od children, surviving.
Second One-third part to the husband
or wile If the survivor Is the parent of all
the children of the deceased and there be
two or more children, or one child and
the issue of one or more deceased chil
Third. Ons-half to the husband or wife
if thj aurvlvor Is the parent of all the chil
dren of the deceased and there be only
one child, or the Issue of a deceased child,
Fourth. One-half to the husband or -wife
If there be no child, nor the issue of any
deceased child nor children, surviving.
Fifth. If the deceased leave relatives of
his or her blood, the residue of the real
estate of which ha or she shall die seised.
In the cases above named, when not law
fully devised, shall descend subject to the
rights of homestead, in the same manner
and to the same persons as hereinafter
provided for the descent of real estate of
deceased persons leaving no husband or
wife surviving; and in the event the de
ceased loave no relatives of his or her
blood, the residue of the real estate herein
provided for. shall also descend to the
surviving husband or wife.
Section 2. Provides for the descent of the
real estate where no husband or wife sur
vive and the same Is not necessary for t ie
Fayment of debts and has not een law
ully devised. Ths provisions oj this tac
tion are the same as tho present law. ex
cept that where there Is no Issue the estate
descends to the father and mother equally,
or to the survivor of them, and !iot to the
father first and mothe afterward, as un
der the present law.
Section 1. Provides for the distribution
of the personal property and Is practically
the same aa the present law, except that
the residue of the personal property after
the allowances and debts have been paid,
shall be distributed in the same propor
tions and to the same persons as take the
Section . Abolishes dower and curtesy.
By section 6 It is provided how a mar
ried man or woman may bar his or her
Interest in the real estate of the other, and
Is as follows:
(Right to Inherit; how barred.) The right
of a married man or woman to Inherit a
part or all of the real estate of which his
or hr spouse was seised of an estate of
Inheritance at any time during the mar
riage, mav be barred bv a conveyance ex
ecuted by such husband -and wife while i
residents of this Hate. and. if either such :
husband or wife be not a resident of this
state, by a deed of conveyance executed I
either by both of snld parties or bv the
one seized at the time of such conveyance;
nnd arh rlxht to inhf r!t may also he
barred by the sale of suc' real eu - - ;

Festivity Visitors, Brides and
Debutantes Feted aael
The Susan B. Anthony memorial fund of
100,000 haa been completely subscribed. The
money is to be used for the promotion of
the cause of woman suffrage, to which
Miss Anthony gave her life. The movement
was started a year ago last February,
when the National Suffrage association met
In Washington, D. C. At that time it was
stated by officers of the association that
If $12,000 annually for five years could be
placed at their disposal over and above
the present Income, more could be ac
complished for woman suffrage than haa
been gained In the last twenty years. The
establishment of this fund was later de
termined upon as a memorial to Miss
Anthony, Miss Mary Carey Thomas, presi
dent of Bryn Mawr college, and Miss Gar
rett being among the most active In rais
All subscriptions to the fund were made
contingent to the raising of tha whole
amount, ri0,000, on or before MayL 1907,
and with the exception of the subscriptions
of members of the committee and - two
other persons, the entire fund was sub
scribed during the first two months. The
following subscription list arranged in. order
of date will be of interest to many: '
