controls the Garden theater In Dee
Moines, ths Casino la Davenport and Is
building a new 1100,009 theater In Daven
port. The main motif of the Interior decor
ative scheme ot the new house Is red.
Many of the lights are hidden In wicker
baskets of flowers, hanging from the
ceilings in the bores and corners and
Tinder the balcony, giving a charming ef
fect when the lights are turned on.
In fact there are boxes and baskets ot
flowers everywhere and vines trail out
of boxes In the lobby and palms and
lerns make green the corners, and birds
ni.g in their cages.
Made Heal Homelike.
A big rug on the lobby floor with a
great urn of flowers standing In the
center makes the photoplay anteroom a
homelike place and superlatively invit
ing. The screen stands at the bacl of the

vision for easy viewing of the pictures.
The pipe organ stands on the left side
of the stage and the keyboard Is In the
orchestra pit, while the electric bellows
Is under the stage. The organ Is a Hope
Jones unit of the same make as the

r V.W '-Sy-H:
THERE hag always been a sentiment la fashions and connoisseurs
tell you that the art of dress expresses In varying ways the senti
ment of the race.
Our ronilng fashions are reminiscent of a romantic period.
The styles of Dolly Varden days and the Queen Louise scarfs were senti
mental, and the models of the colonial days picturesque and romantic. It
Is a noticeable fact that now-a-days the word "quaint" frequently appears
in the description of new styles, tf quaint means anything In this con
nection. It means that the new styles are colng back and picking up ro
mantic suggestions out of the past. Not so much fantastic and ornate sug
gestions, as much as those having story book associations. For Instance,
the story book has told of funny things In the days "When Knighthood
Was in Flower," and these hsve been translated at times Into batar re
vivals. They have resulted even In efforts now and again to have men
wear for evening dress satin knee breeches and big shoe buckles but this
never happened In Omaha except at the Ak-Sar-Ben ball..
Men would not stand for taking a permanent place In fashlondom, al
though keenly Interested in the styles of the feminine world.

Tom McCarthy Lends
Sunday Suit to His
- Pal and Fight is On
Some time ago a waiter at the Fonte
nelle hotel presented his friend, Tom Mc
Carthy, a little red-headed Irishman, with
a black suit of the swallowtail variety.
The suit soon became the envy of every
person of McCarthy's acquaintance, and
one, "Big" Sweeney, a big. burly switch
man, especially admired the suit.
One day Sweeney asked McCarthy for
the loan ot the suit so thst he might at
tend a wake. McCarthy loaned him the
Presumably Sweeney attended the wake.
But returning he attended several other
more or less well known places of con
viviality. It displeased MoCarthy that
his suit should bs subjected to exposure
in such plsces, especially while on ihe
peraon of "Big" Sweeney. McCarthy de
manded the return of- the suit. It was
not returned. And officers brought Mc
Carthy before the Judge and took
Sweeney home for repairs.
"Did you get your suit back, McCar
thy?" queried the Judge.
"Not ylt, but when Sweeney recovers I
expect to enter Into negotiations with him
again," responded McCarthy.
"Discharged," said the Judge, "hut don't
start any more fights or it will be some

cials all over the country as the man
with the "circuit shoulder." has been
arrested In Davenport. Ia., charged
with defrauding the street railway
company of that city.
Young, alias Robinson, is known
to the street railway officials of the
Omaha system, for back In 1904 ho

of $125. He got that sum out of
them by using his "circuit shoulder."

Mow to Break One of
Your Habits Profitably
Most people dislike to break a habit, no
matter how bad or unprofitable it may be.
Many people are prejudiced in favor of
certain goods because they have used
them for a long time and are not famil
iar with other kinds. '
Those goods may be made out of town
and they may be goods of high merit and
value. But some other town benefits from
the profit on them. The habit of buying
Omaha-Made goods will reveal the fadt
that they are the equal or better than those made
elsewhere and in most cases can be purchased
If Omaha-Made products would not make that
statement good, we would not be using so many
columns of newspaper space to introduce them
The way to make prosperity a vital reality in
Omaha is to make trade better by cultivating the
habit of buying and using Omaha-Made products.
