There was a straw hat In Omaha Sunday.
In romnanv with a meek looking man It
lxrded the P.eneon car going north on
Thirteenth about 7 o'clock. The man had
no escort of safety excepting his wife and
children and since hie wife, too. wore a
summery costume she could heln him very
tittle. The crowd restrained Itself beraue
the man was very evidently getting his
punishment from the outraged elements.
When he got on the car the first touch of
the cold evening had been felt. Cool
breetes explored around his head and tilted
bla hat and made him shiver.
Bravely and determinedly he did the only
thing that could be done. He kept his tem
per hidden aa much as possible from public
view and got off at the first opportunity.
When that same man came down town
Monday morning he wore a heavy fur over
coat, earmuffs and rubber galoshes. He
will not be fooled again for some time.
