A deal that almost cam to a conclusion
la New York last week meant something
for Omaha. Th Stair A Havlin people
came mighty near breaking Into th
burlesque game, and. It they had, th
Krug would have become a rival to th
Gayety. Something, Interfered with th
(roar of th plan, however, and It Is
now understood to be off entirely.
Frank Bacon, who Is with the company
that Is playing "The Fortune Hunter"
through th west, and who will soon be
here, delivered himself at Denver of an
Interview that . la characteristic and
thoughtful. Among the things he said was
a statement that th quality of acting has
not deteriorated; It la public taste that ha
changed, and If the public were to swing
back to th classic and demand tb old
tyl play again, plenty of actors would
come forth well qualified to present them.
Bacon Is doing so well with this piece
that his place may be sold to be fixed,
and th popular "stock" organisations will
likely know him no mora.

opened by President Kector, and the first

of one of the hhjh school cheer leaders.
Tb Important business of th afternoon
was th unanimous election of Mis Kath

high school, as class teacher. After this
lYcsldetU Rector read to th clak some
plans for the coming year. H announced
that Instead of havmg a senior fair as

along the gargantuan lines of "The Mid

The president of a New York religious
organisation has aked Mayor Gaynor to
prohibit Mme. Bernhardt' performances
of "Ia Samarllalne" there. "She plays
'Camllle,' a Fr nch wanton, one day." he
complains, "and holds converse with God In
'La 8a marl lain the next."
The mayor replied that he sympathised
with the protest, but had no power to in
terfere. For the first time theatergoers have a
chance to meet a character that for six

of the country. Through the persuasion

Season Styles in
NEW YORK, Dec. 1!.-Wlth th Increas
ing Interest In holiday affairs the question
of clothes becomes, for the time being, of
minor Inmportanc. NewvTork modistes
are enjoying a brief breathing spell, and.
as a result, their orders or the last aeeK
have received an unusual degree of per- I
sonal supervision is apparent In many of
the costumes delivered during the last few
day. It Is almost Impossible for a suc
cessful New Tork modiste to give marked
attention to the execution of each of her
many orders. Phe, of course, personally
plan every garment made In her estab
lishment, but In the height of the season
th fashioning of her designs Is entrusted
entirely to her assistants. Be the woman
whose orders are placed In th "between
season" period usual ry finds th finishing
of her frock attest to th fact.
Tb style feature which seem to be agit
ating th feminine mind most at present
1 the raised waistline. The adoption of
this feature, In so far as one-piece and
princess costumes are concerned, was de
cided upon last summer. It la the change
In coat and separate skirts that seems to
perplex milady. The leading modistes with
out exception have set th stamp of ap
proval upon this new feature as they very
wisely forsee It use I a certainty a cer
tainty because It la universally becoming.
A Word Abovt Coreetlag.
But th change Is so radical that a per
sonal demonstration 1 necessary to con
vlnce most women that the style produce

of yesteryear. To the casual observer th
Chang might appear to result from a re
duction of the hip. It is generally con
ceded that th present advanced Ideas m
corseting hav reduced the hips somewhat.
but tb really appreciable difference lies
in the change of tb waist measurement.
Lacing on waist was th outcom of an
erroneous and barbarous conception of
beauty, and American women deserve
congratulation for presiding at th ob
aequles of this custom. The up-to-date
woman. In corseting her figure, retains, as
near as possible, her natural waist meas
urement, for she has learned from experi
ence that this gives her far more graceful
lines In short. It Imparts to any figure
the straight, slender lines which are so
pleasing to the eye. The raising of tha
waistline really bas a tendency to deceive.
It creates. sort of optical illusion when
the eye reaches the hip line, and conveys
an Impression of alendernesa.
A tllk Coat Salt.
This new feature In construction Is very
attractively presented in the first figure.
This little coat has the waistline broken
by the center-front panel, but the becom
ing qualities of the change In the waist
line Is at once apparent.
Nattier blue peau de sole was the ma
terial from which this costume was fash
toned. The broadening of the sailor collar
in front added an original touch to this
feature. The facing of this collar was
made of black panne satin, and this same
material was also used for the cuffs. Tho
collar facing was edged with a row of
mall button and loops of th peau de
sole, and these same buttons trimmed the
outer edges of the panel from the belt to
the lower edg. The closing was affected
with two large clover leaf froga. The skirt
ws In five gores, with shaped overlapping
sections at the lower part of the aid

Peau de sole buttons edged the front panel
from the waUt to the top of the lower

trott&ur was an adaptation of the tri
comered military shape. It was made of
