THIS seems the age of the safe-and-sane la all things, even festivals,
with the safeness for the Fourth of July and the eaneness for
You euner Kive an arusuc cam, wiuoui inugo or Byiuiuv,
but correct In script and chaste in design. If not a card, something that can
be of use, Jewelry, of course, always considered. In the gift displays of the
shops this season, foremost are taffeta silk umbrellas, linen handkerchiefs
with daintily embroidered designs, envelope bags of seal leather, hand bags
of striped silk moire, fancy hairpins, filled stationery cabinets, thread Bilk
and novelty silk hosiery. Angora worsted caps and skating Bcarrs and sweat
ers In Copenhagen blue, old rose and purple.
Perhaps the gift handkerchiefs, the salesfolk call them "moucholra" In
New York this year, are among the daintiest of exhibits. Handkerchiefs at
Christina are like stiver teaspoons for a wedding they are safe and wel
comed always. The glove handkerchief Is a great favorite, Maderia em
broidered, with the scallop rivaling the hemstitched edge.
Bijouterie, we call it Jewelry In Omaha, shows delicate modeling,
fragile form. There are pendants, "French necklets," "La Vallleres," and
many replicas of fine old brooches. The day, too, has come when a young
chap may buy his fiancee a trinket without going into, debt for a diamond, a
pearl or ruby. Stones are prized for their beauty, not their cost, and no
young man may be afraid to give the lady of his choice a setting of ame
thyst, sapphire or Jet (South American). Lapis laxull, Jade, Jet, coral and
topai are in equally good taste. Tomorrow, perhaps, I'll have something to
say of the gifts that may be sent to boys and men.

I flck by a federal officer who recently
visited the national capital.
"The attorney general doesn't contem

"and the president wilt take no action
until after the first of the new year."

The visit of an assistant sttorney gen
