Mary'e avenue i one of the building
features of the year. Beautiful In design
and absolutely modem ' In its construc
tion, It affords a fine central location
for many families.
The Wolfe Bros, company, one of
Omaha's oldest and best tent and awning
. firms, having been established since 1889,
furnished the beautiful awnings which
shade the Florentine. This company
Is doing an extensive business, not
only In Omaha, but throughout the whole
western territory, and has established
a wide reputation for fair, dealing and
substantial service. 1
Thoroughly modern: In its equipment,
the Florentine, heedless to sy, uses
electric lights throughout for illumina

in Bungalow Boat
Postponed a Year
Louis A. Holliday. 3528 North Twenty-1
eighth avenue, has been married, since
last October and since then has been
assiduously arranging for his honeymoon,
which he no regretfully announces will
hav to be postponed for another year.
The big motor boat in which that honey
moon is to be spent is not complete.
HollMay is a watchmaker at the Ryan
Jewelry store. A year ago he conceived
the idea of building a small floating
bungalow equipped with high-powered en
gines, floating it on the .Missouri and
spending therein a novel honeymoon.
His plans were laid and executed
carefully and th boat was launched
Sunday. It Is a bigger boat tnan he
first conceived and as he is building it
himself it will not be complete for three or
four weeks and th approach of winter
and frosen rivers precludes the possibil
ity of fh honeymoon trip.
"I planned to make th trip to Louls
vlll. Ky.. my old 'hom. this summer."
said Holliday, "but have ben compelled
to postpone it until next spring. This
boat will carry about forty passengers
and it has eost m tl.9A for material
alone. I hav don th work of construc
tion myself." v
