Arrangements All Complete at Sher
man & McConnell'i Beantifal
Surcease Parlor for Thursday.
'Podoasls," Omaha's newest and pret
tleet soda water room, will be formally
opened Thursday In the basement of the
Sherman 4 McConnell company's drug
store. Sixteenth and Dodre streets. It la
a roomy, cool and attractive place, where
Foda fountain patrons of Omaha will find
the best surcease from their thirsts during
the hot days of the summer. The large
room haj been arranged In what the own
ers of the store believe to be an Ideal
manner. Many soda water rooms are
small, and when patronized by many peo
ple are congested. To guard against such
a thing the owners of "Sodoasts" made
their room large and arranged it so that
eighty people can be seated at one time
In addition to looking after the crowding
of the place the owners have provided for
keeping the room cool. One shall be able
to drink at this place without feeling the
effects of the hot sun, for a delightfully
refreshing atmosphere will always be pres
ent. The room also la "fly proof;" patrons
will not be called upon to "swat the files."
The fountain, of Italian marble and
solid mahogany. Is the most beautiful In
this section of the country. It Is so at
tractive that one Is Immediately Im
pressed with Its worth. Lrge French bev
eled mirrors, located several feet above
the floor and back sgainst the wall at the
rear of the fountain, reflect pictures of
those who sit or stand before the marble
Spreading around the walls of the room
are other French plate-glass mirrors In
"gun-metal" oak frames. Beautiful oak
benches are located below the mirrors. All
the woodwork of the room, with the ex
ception of that on the fountain. Is of "gun
metal" oak. The many tables are made
of this wood. Borne of the tables have ad
justable seats, which swing out to permit
customers to be seated.
Each lady visitor on Thursday will be
given a floral souvenir, and for the open
ing days the fountain room will be dec
orated In red clover. Entrance to
"Bodoasls" Is from the main floor of the
drug store. Steps lead from this floor at
the south side of the room and directly
in front of the main entrance to the
