PITY the poor man.
After years of enjoyment obtained by ranting and raving
earh and every time fashion decreed the style and design of women's
apparel should change, the poor man must take a back seat whil
the worm turns and women steps to the fore to ridicule and scoff. Why?
you ask. But have you seen the spring styles for menT
Henceforth the sartorial display of the average male will be sufficient
to enliven a funeral, let alone s tango tea pr a dinner-dance, where one
cornea to enjoy bneself. While the midsection of the well-dressed man
will be decorously clad, It ls at the two ends of his person that he will
blossom forth in a manner most wonderful to .behold.
The hat which will adorn his scented Jocks is what Is generally re
ferred to on the woman's page aa a confection; the band is Its crownlne
glory, a glory unsurpassed by Solomon's, but accompanying sprigs of al
falfa, which prevent Walking Dear the curb, , also add to the effect.
And the lower end. Sufficient It la to say the feet will be encased io
dainty creations of finest leather and silk, adorned and fastened , by large
sapphire buttons. It la admitted by shop keepers that the loss of one but
ton will ruin a pair of shoe; and make them only useful to make scarf pins
out of the remaining Jewels. .' .. ... , '
Dut the best la yet to come. The hat and shoes are nothing In com
parison. Shop keepers declare they will wish onto Omaha men that evil
of evils, the walking stick. Despite the fact that a good healthy westerner
regards the walking stick as an Implement to be used only In case of ex
treme age or rheumatism, an effort will be made' to thrust the swagger
stick on young men. - Whether the shop keepers will be successful or not
remain to be seen, but they have allied themselves and will put forth
strenuous efforts In the, attempt. ' '
The usual gaudy raiment as to neckwear andShirts, although it looks
more noisy than ever, will be in vogue this year, and swings are of about
the same cut and designs with a few minor changes.
But, even so, it can be seen what a tumultous time poor man Is to
have when he attempts to buy a spring outfit.
MISS RUTH HOYT, who
last year captained the in
door base ball champions,
will play this year on the
Wellesley college base ball
team. In 1914 she pitched
her class to victory over
sophs, seniors and freshmen.

sorted Albert Tirman, commissioner gen
eral from France to the Ban Francisco

missioner of fine arts, spent two hours In

senger traffic manager, and General Paa
senger Agent Bnslnger of the Union Pa

Is to be the outciVme of the war in Eu
rope and how long will It continue? -
The two distinguished Frenchmen ar
rived from the east at 9:46 yesterday
morning, having come direct from France.
They remained in the city . until 11:66
o'clock, when they continued their Jour
ney westward. At the depot they were
met by Messrs. Fort and Baslnger and In
an automobile were driven about the city
during a greater portion of their atop,
calling at Union Paclflo headquarters.
They saw the parka the residence por
tions of the city and the manufacturing
and lobbing sections and expressed them
selves as greatly pleased with their en

Commissioner General Tirman talked
freely on most topics, but when war waa
broached, he shrugged his houldera
"We are on a peace mission and rannot
talk about war. It is bad enough and
here In America I cannot dlfotiss It, or
what It means for the future.
Neither of trm distinguished Frenchmen
have ever been In this part of the country

they are in love with the United States,
Commissioner . Gulfrey remarking, "I
cannot understand this broad expanse of
level land; Ita something that I have
never seen before. '
"France -will make a creditable display
at the fan Francisco eiyyoslUon. We had
made most of our arrangmenta before
ths breaking out of the war and we have
gone on and perfected our pjans as If
nothing had occurred. Our art exhibit
will be creditable and we hope and feel
that it will please the American people."

used In my household for the (est twenty
yeara I began giving It to my chlldrert

lief for croup, whooping cough and or

from opium and other harmful drugs, I
never felt afraid to give It to the children.
