ANCIENT HOMES TELL
OF THEOLDEN DAY
Old Mansion of the Early Days
Given Over to be Boarding
BUSINESS OBOWDS IT OUT
MELLIFICIA, July 24.
Did the fate of old mansions ever
trike you as romantic? As I walked
down a certain street of Omaha the
other day I saw beautiful old brick
houses, the kind that instinctively
make one think of old-established
families, completely surrounded by
cheap modern houses running over
with ' tternly women and unkempt
' town has its quota of just
s ises. I like to imagine them
I oust have been in their prime.
:y must have bubbled over
and gayety. What stately
-th snowy hair and bobbing
t have presided at the pol
. rd in the paneled dining hall!
a great ball would be given
polished floors would be
r the dancers. The stately
'. the snowy hair would array
I m her crackling robes of silk,
tne , ung daughters would be
brushed and powdered and dressed
demurely. Then the great heavily
carved front door would swing back
and hacks and big old-fashioned car
riages would drive up to the porte
cochere with a grand flourish, there to
give up a stream of bustling berib
obned and frock-coated freight. .
Oh, the stories that these old hous
es could tell of people and plans.
What events they have seen ,or what!
skeletons lurk in their dim, dusty
closets. But here they are stranded
high and dry by the onrushing flood
of the busy city's life and society.
All over Omaha and any fairly old
city you can see these sad old
wrecks, suggesting volumes, of past
history, but moldering, milkweed and
vacant, too antiquated and misplaced
for the rich, too expensive and un
wholesome for the poor. r
Young Folks Take the Palm for
Keeping Wedding Plans Secret
The palm for two things planning
the most original wedding and being
the most secretive individuals in this
city undoubtedly belong to Mr.
Lumir Buresh and Miss Elizabeth
Doud, two of the most popular young
people in the college set, who were
married Saturday evening.
You certainly can tell them your
deepest secret for they know how
to keep secrets from parents, sisters
and brothers and dearest friends,
Of course all their friends knew
the young people were engaged and
that Mr. Buresh was building a lovely
little home in Minne l.usa addition
ior his bride. The cozy little place
was completed, it was being furnished
and the bride was preparing her wed
ding gown, so Mamma Doud and
Mamma Buresh thought it was time
to get their own new gowns ready
for the wedding, which they did.
Saturday evening, the younger Mr
Buresh invited his parents to come
with him and Miss ,Doud to inspect
the new home. . Attired as they were,
the parents- stepped into the waiting
machine and whirled .out to the new
little nest. , . ". rt..-.. .
While they 'were inspecting (the
lower floor, Miss Doud slipped up
stairs and donned her bridal gown
and just as she was descending the
staircase; a regular bride, the door

parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Doud and
her sister, Mary,- summoned on a
Similar mission W inspect the house,
and Dr. and Mr: David R. Kerr, old
friends of the family.

bethought,.themselves of the beautiful
Wedding gowns in planning). Dr. Kerr
married the young people, who left
MRS. LUMIR BURESH.
that same evening for a wedding trip
to Kansas City and Excelsior Springs.
The marriage is the culmination of
a romance started in high school days
wheitMr. Buresh was editor and Miss
Doud, assistant editor of the Regis
ter. Since then Miss Doud attended
the University of Nebraska and was
dn-the secretarial staff of the Young
Women' Christian association, while

Dr, Connell Gives
Advice to Swimmers
Health Commissioner Connell of
fers this word of advice to bathers at
public swimming places:
"Do not swallow the water. The
chances are there may be no ill ef
fects, but there is alway. a danger of
contamination. You run a risk when
you swalolw the waler when many
are in bathing. Put colon in your
ears before you enter the water, this
precaution protecting the ear drums
The increasing popularity of Mu
nicipal beach, Kiverview and Spring
lake swimming pools prompts the
health commissioner to give this mat
ter some thought. Particularly at
Riverview pool does his advice apply.
Dr. Connell is colecting a lot of
data on the subject of swimming pool
sanitation. Upon his suggestions the
pools at Riverview and Spring Lake
parks are cleaned and the water clari
fied by chlorine gas. The water is
replaced at intervals.
