Fashions in Men's Suits
Gray and Green the Prevailing Colors, With Lots of
Scope for Fancy in Selection Waist Line Not Moving
Downward Nor Marked Change in Cat of Garments.

will array themselves In sack
suits of ens or other of these
colors, for It Is cloth of these hues that
clothiers and tailors ara offering. Brown
la not totally under the ban and some suits
of this color are to be seen In Omaha, win
dows. Those who affect to understand
these things tell one that brown Is more
fittfngly worn In autumn when the aere
and yellow leaf hangs tremblingly on tho
tree. WHat brown suits are shown are of
a less Intense shale than those of yester
year. In rray and green there are a variety
of shades te select from. "Oreen," one la
told, "harmonises capitally with field and
foliage, although It la trying for many."
Thope often sun-kissed or weatherbcaten to
a dull bronse will do well, ona is further
aesured, to avoid a very deep green. As a
matter of fact, the shade of green shown
are not extremely pronounced, and some
so called. . would seem more like a dull
white to an Inexpert eye. In the grays
there ia no chance for Immense variation
from ordinary shades, and the chance to
mske new ityles comes reaJly more In cut
than In color.
Mere man's waistline apparently Is not
like that of the other sex on the downward
path. In fact, the Idea that he has a waist,
fostered a season or two ago by the
"shaped back" with Incurving line at the
waist, seems to have been somewhat dissi
pated, padding from the shoulders Is dis
appearing to some i-xtent also, and a so
called "naturalness" Is sought after. This
rule Is, however, fur from being .a rigid
one, and those who like the exaggerated
shculder and wished the creased seam on
coats can still have It so. The younger
the man, the more likely he Is to wish tor
these and other outre effects.
The rule for spring seems to be that
trousers shall be without ouffs, though
they will be worn with summer apparel.
flannels, homespuns and knockabout suits.
The young Idea, however, quite fancies
this excresoence on the bottom of trousers
and will part with It with reluctance even
for a time. It Is possible for him cot to
part at all. however, for he can and. In
some cases will. Jump from a winter suit
Into a summer me.
Broad lapols, softly rolled and not pressed
flat are a distinctive feature of spring
coats. This la asserted to be a feature of
all coats, for business, lounging and formal
occasions. The Idea Is borrowed perchance
from the shawl roll collars pertaining to
evening wear, Instead of peak lapels."
Tou must wear the buttons a little
higher this spring. One ia told that thla
Is to permit one to sit down without un
buttoning and still be comfortable. This
Is In accord with the dictum that a new
coat should be worn buttoned In order that
the garment may shap Itself to the pecu
liar architectural scheme of the wearer.
The walatcoat-ln this part of the world
generally called a vest by rude, horrid and
Indelicate m-n Is so cut that none shows
twlxt the lapels. No longer Is It allowed
te flaunt Itself above the boundaries of
the outer garment. This la a little more
true of plain than of the kind called
"fancy," for those who wish to wear the
latter somehow sometimes figures that It
Is no use to invest a number of dollars on
a garment and not have It seen by a mora
or less admiring public. (This principle
received definite formulation from the es
teemed "Flngy" Connors of Buffalo, N. T.,
when he aent hurtling down the corridors
of fame his thesis that "thlm that has
diamonds generally wears thlm.") But of
waistcoats more anon, as the shilling
checkers say. '
Trousers will be worn bifurcated this
spring. They will be roomy enough to get
Into, but will not be so copious as a bath
robe. Like a plumbline they will descend

hectic effects to be seen. The most notable
In several ways Is a creation called the
Tattersal and will be worn chiefly by the
young. It la of a deep cream felt or flan
nel and has stripes or checks, some In
vivid greens and yellows.
Vests of pearl tints are among ths most
fetching novelties of springtime. With
the dinner rackets black Is once again In
favor, the horror of youths who bought
grey ones and can not buy anew right
'away. The more or less glided youths who
haunt fraternity halls have evoked the Idea
of having fraternity designs on their
tuxedo waistcoat buttons, but this Is a
fashion not likely to spread for eminently
good reason a
In serge cloth nothing Is able to displace
the blue and a suit of that material and
color will be as popular during the sum
mer as ever before. In cut it will, of
course, differ In no wise from the way the
grey and green weaves sre being made up,
. and for summer evening wear it will re
main as well liked as In the past. No
amount of scolding by anybody Is' able to
persuade men In thla part of the world to
wear evening dress during the hot months
and the coat of blue verge which looka
black at night will be worn with a white
pique shirt or a stiff one.
Local ssles of clothing are declared con
siderably larger this spring than last when
the effect of the scare the previous fall
was still making aome men economise.

PLAYING WALL STREET GAME

Of the many popular delusions touch

persistent or more dangerous to the out
alder than the belief that from nothing
great permanent fortunes have been made
by shrewd and lucky speculation In prices.
It Isn't true. We differentiate here be
tween speculation In prices only, and the
kind of legitimate speculation which seeks
to anticipate great economic changes.
Legitimate speculation has its translation

Blank: He was the ohlef accountant of

was an expert railway statistician, and an
exceptionally able young man to boot. He
knew his own road like a book, as well as
some other things that only the directors
were aware of. The stock of tha system
looked cheap to him, and he used his

two Blank's capital had Increased to $60,000.

though the stock advanoed ten points more.
That was the first of Btank'a deals.
Twelve months later he won again. He
thought that the stock of a certain western
system was selling below ita value and
set about an Investigation to find the facts.
He hired a first class engineer and a re

end of that railroad to the other, and ho
himself analysed the accounts. When all
