Fifth Avenue and the -Rue
de Paree pass in review. The
styles that have received the
stamp of approval'of the most
famous old and new world
coutourieres are arriving here
daily in Omaha.
If one could close her eyes and
have a voiced description of the
styles seen, together with an imag
inative setting where Fashion's de
votees parade, the mind picture
would appeal vividly in this manner:
Modish Dresses of satin,
taffeta or serge and com
bination find the high favor
that their worthiness entitles
them to. x
""Look more close!y--one of the most important and pleaj
ing features that Fashion reveals this Fall is the embroid
ered and Beaded Decorations.
"One of the smartest things I havevseen on Fifth
Avenue," said the Woman Who Knows, "are the
beaded bags that go to match the decoration upon
these new dresses."
This vogue for embroidery and beading Is indulged in to
such a large extent that the well-dressed woman on Fifth
Avenue passes with a trimming of fringe on the side ol her
-ijress that is at once striking and effective.
Flowing Veils from small hats reveal the ac
cepted vogue for motor wear.
SO PASSES THE REVUE and the swift transit 'of these
styles from the home of their origination to their presenta
tion in this store enables the women of Omaha to enjoy the
vogue of the minute with scarcely any Intermission between
the conception of the idea and the revelation of the gown
itself. ' ' j
Furs find favor as never before. Miladi must
have of necessity a complete set of furs in addition
to the fur trimmed garments that Fashion puts her
seal upon. "
BUT the Tailored Suit with Its never varying appeal to
trimness, smartness and wonderful utility value, is not to be
sidetracked for any of the newer fads that Fashion offers.
Therefore, it is not surprising to have an announcement like
The Brandeis Apparel Stores offer a wide assort
ment of Tailored Suits-rthe types that every
woman knows as the most reliable wear for her
Positive information permits us to announce that for early
wear Gabardines and Serges (principally in navy) will be the
favorites. Later on "When the Leaves Begin to Fal
Duvetynes, Broadcloths, Velours and a host of other likeable
fabrics will be shown in the smartest gowns.
Put your thoughts Into action. The mirror we
have held up before you is simply a reflection the
actual garments are here for your early Fall wear.
It would be wise indeed to inspect them now.

and interlocking plants. All Union Pacific employes are
banded together in an extensive and enthusiastic Safety First
organization which has worked out thousands of new meth
