The officer's or Fort Omaha, Fort Crook
and the headquarters are planning an elab
orate reception .ind ball to be giren In
honor of General and Mrs. Charles Morton
and General and Mrs. William H. Carter.
The ball will probably be given at the
Rome hotel, Wednesday evening, December
9, although definite arrangements have not
been completed. It Is several seasons since
a military ball has been given In Omaha
and it will be one of the events of the
season and Is being anticipated by the
Omaha people as well as the officers and
their wives. General Carter has recently
taken a short leave of absence and expects
to be In Omaha for a few flays about De
cember 7rto 10 and will later relieve Gen
eral Morton, who Is at present In com
mand of the Department of the Missouri.
The committee oa arrangements for the
ball Include Lieutenant W. N. Haskell of
Fort Omaha, Lieutenant Troifpe Miller,
aide-de-camp to General Morton, and Lieu
tenant Mlchaeila of Fort Orook. Later a
number of other officers will be appointed
Dr. George L. Miller and Mrs. Miller will
celebrate the fifty-fourth anniversary of
Dr. Miller's coming to Omaha by giving
an elaborate house warming at their new
home at 49 North' Thirty-first street,
faouig Curtis Turner park, Monday even
ing. The real anniversary was October
la, but as the new home was not completed
they decided to turn back the calendar a
month and then Invite all their friends In
The first house occupied by Dr. Miller
was located oa Twenty-fourth street near
Kelloni school. It wsa a Cottonwood shanty,
rough plastered with clay and lfme. The
single room was parlor, library, living I
room, bedroom and bedroom. The furni-1
ture was made of cottonwood slabs and the
chairs' were three In number, home made. ;
Dr. Miller has Just completed a new and
attratclve .home of the bungalow style,
with every modern convenience, which Is
a model of beauty and quite a contrast
to his first home In Omaha. This, how-
ever. Is not the first modern residence he
erected. Some years ago he built a beau
tiful stone mansion at Seymour park, near
Seymour lake, which, with all hla treasures,
was destroyed by f1i.
Among the out-of-town guests who have
sent their acceptances for the house
warming are General Grenvtlle M. Dodg;
of Council Rluffs and his daughter, Mrs.
Montgomery, Miss Emms Morton of Arbor
Lodge. Nebraska City, Bister of the late
secretary of agriculture, J. Sterling Mor
ton, who was an Intimate friend of Dr.
Miller, and Hon, and Mrs. A. J. Sawyer
Over luu guests wUl be present Monday
evening to enjoy the hospitality of Dr.
na Mrs. Miller, Including many of the
oldest settlers of Omaha.
While announcing that he has ao desire
to prescribe what women shall wear on
their heads. Bishop Williams of the Episco
pal church asks that all women who attend
the wedding at the Cathedral Tuesday
night hare their heads covered, In accord
ance with the Immemorial ru'.e of the
church.' The women can wear what they
plense, Jn accordance with the requirements
of Christian courtesy and consideration for
others who would like to see and bear.
For once, the bishop asks that the women
bow not to dame fashion, but shall observe
the rule of the church and wear modest
and seemly apparel In the house of God.
He alao requests that all unnecessary con
versation ia the church be avoided and be
come reverent Christian people.
