THK TiKR: OMAHA, TUKSDAV, OCTOHER 2fi, 1015.
ON not Thursday afternoon the much discussed Cordon, the feminine
counterpart of the Cliff Iweller. will hold its first meeting In the
Fine Arts building In Chicago. The name of the club, "cordon,"
meaning many strands woven together, best describes this assem
blage of social leaders, writers, actresses, musicians, business women and
reformers. More than half the members "do something," and women of
such International social prominence as Mrs. Hobart Chatfield-Taylor and
Mrs. Tiffany Blake are respectively listed as "bookbinder" and "expert
landscape gardener." The membership Is limited to 400 and the club Is
starting its career with a long waiting list. The purpose of the Cordon Is
purely social, aiming to provide a pleasant gathering place to meet for
luncheon, dinner or afternoon tea.
In this brilliant coterie, two women well known to Nebraskans stand
prominently out, Airs. Kobert Hums l'eattle and Miss Kdlth Abbott. While
Miss Abbott claims Orand Island instead of Omaha as her Nebraska resi
dence, she Is a graduate of Brownell Hall and has many Omaha friends.
.1 mean to keep an eye on the Cordon this coming winter the thing
Is unique, and it will be worth while to know what Is talked about and
planned when women picked for their effectiveness In all walks of life get
together In an exclusively social way.

TO PAY UP BILLS

TO DISCOURAGE OVER-BUYING

Omaba by the credit rating depart-1
ment of that association.
At the Inst meeting of the association
It was decided that something should bo
done nlong this line, for the purpose of
Hitting money Into the treasury of the
retailer when it is due lilm. A commit

Ncwstapor advertising was siiKKiitcl as

It wns pointed out thnt when goods rr
bought on credit, with no definite agree
ment other than that they are to bo
charged, it la always understood thnt
ihey arc to be paid for between the first
and the tenth of tho month following.
Very often this ohligntlon is neglected, I

Fach retailer is under obligation ns a
member of the Associated Retailers to re-
port the credit standing of each customer
at the end of the month, so that the
credit rating department of the ansocln- j
tlon may make a record na to whether j
"John Jones" is thirty-day pny, sixty-
day, ninety-day, slow pay, or absolutely'
poor pay. In many cases, the retailer
point out, a customer msy carelessly nl- I
low a bill to run ninety days or lormer, J
when he has the money to pay ull the

ninety-day pay, according to when he

The campaign of education Is also ex
pected to educate people not to overbuy.
It la found that there Is often a tendency
o buy above one's means when credit l.i
easy to get. "It Is easy to get credit, but
not eaay to maintain It," said J. W. Met
calfe, secretary of the association, "If one
does not guard' his buying after his
credit Is established as well as ho guarded
It when he was paying cash for every
thing The individual does not realize
the Importance of keeping his credit
first class as much as the Industrial house
realizes It. A business house knows that
it must meet Its bills promptly In order
to maintain a good credit rating. The In
dividual ordinarily does not realise thnt
he 1 making a rating for himself, good
or bsd, according to whether he 1 paying
hi bills promptly."
