By MELLIFICIA. Friday, November 20, 1914.
I HEARD a good story th other day which is very much apropos to all
this talk of cotton going about.
The place was a celebrated cotton affair held In Washington and
sponsored by Mrs. Clarke and daughter, Oenevleve, where everybody
was wearing a cotton dress, and the chatter highly recommended the ad
vantages of this homey product. Everyone Insisted that cotton was just
the prettiest fabric ever, and always made just the sweetest sort of a gown
Imaginable, don't you know. (You know the lingo.)
This was too much for a certain solon's wife, who suddenly ducked
and, too flabbergasted for words, tore madly to her modiste, who was In
the midst of fitting her out In a winter wardrobe of silks and Imported
materials, with not a trace of cotton In them, and countermanded her
But why go to Washington for cotton talk when we are In the midst
of a young cotton Industry here? Dr. L'ggett and his son, Mr. Guy Ltg
gett, have twenty cotton plants which they planted last spring In their
garden, and now any number of the bulbs have blossomed. This Is one
of the prettiest sights Omaha has seen In some time.
