POEMEE PROMINTNT OMAHA
CLUB WOMAN STOPS IN CITY.
WITH the presence ot late summer, "Danny" Cupid's pranks ot the
still evenings are the engaging topics of the tea-drinking con
tingent. An Interesting romance, to have Its culmination soon In wed
ding bells, refers to a charming maid of the blonde type of beauty, who lives
with her parent In one of the attractive apartments of West End. She has
spent much time In study abroad and belongs to one of the older families
here. The gentleman in question Is an eligible bachelor, and, as an agree
able coincidence, occupies an apartment In the same building.
Then one of the younger bachelors, whose sister Is to be one of the
debutantes of the winter, is devoting his time and thoughts to a Chicago
girl. He Is a son of one of the wholesale merchants. The many friends ot
the two couples expect engagement announcements soon.

MONDAY SHOPPING DAY
FOR MANY OMAHA FOLK
Saturday has been exchanged for Mon
day as the principal shopping- day In the
retail district, according to Secretary J.
W. Metcalfe of the Associated Retailers.
"Why, I cannot say," said Metcalf, "but
It Is a fact that any big retailers will
tell you, that nowadays the crowds are
flocking In the retail stores and doing
their shopping on Monday Instead of fS.it
urdy." Saturday is, of course, still a good buay
day, but, according to the retailers, the
shift of the big business to Monday has
been made within the last few years."

ances which help make home more liveable. If your
house is not equipped for electricity, there is no better
time than this month to have it modernized. If you are
contemplating a vacation competent electrical wiremen
can do the work while you are away, although it is a
simple task to have your house wired at any time.
The new rules and methods of charging will encourage the rise of
many electrical appliances whicQi aro eo helpful in the home. See that
your house has plenty of convenient sockets in closets, in tho cellar and
in dark halls and stairways. Make duro that there aro sockets or recep
tacles conveniently located for the electric iron and the washing machine.
Base-board and floor connections will be convenient for lamps, cooking
appliances and the electric cleaner. (
The new rates are not effected by the connected load, number of sock
ets or the number or size of lamps. You will now pay a specified rate per
kilowatt hour for the current consumed regardless of the size of your
These new rates represent our sincere efforts to make a real reduc
tion in the cost of electricity and to make our charges equitable to all
consumers alike both large and small.
