s of the Week in Social
and Club Circles;
is that I
fact, gentle' reader,
it. the long-tooked-
1 for, is tipou us. According to
y all anticipations this situation
shouM immediately be de
noted by a cessation ot entertainment,
an increase in sewing circles and a
lack of patronage at juch worldtv
place as theater? and hotel di'.iinr
rooms. The mystery ot ti
lies in thisthat whiie there arc undoubtedly-
more sewing . clubs, other
amusements seem to iollow their
usual coprse with serene unconcern.
' It is true that many people are
taking this opportunity to hie them
away where birds sing sweetly amid
green leaves swayed by balmy breezes
blowing from a clear blue sky. They
are going to join all the other mem
ber! of the Omaha family, who are,
as the headlines say, "sojourning in
warmer climes." The people who have
been away and come home to find
snow and ice in place of heat and sun
shine, shiver and regret that they
have not prolonged thejr visits.
Others have found unpleasant weath
er and are glad to get back to Omaha,
where, at least, they can be com
fortable in their own homes. K gen
erous sprinkling of Oinaha travelers
may be found in all the popular win
ter resorts of America and the Pacific.

theater has seldom seen even in its
most balmy days gathered for the
novel entertainment. Parties were
numerous, but the. groups of people
who came by twos and threes, really
prominent people, too, made up the
bulk of the house.
Regret No Mardi Gras BalL
One thing we did not have last
week. The failure to have it has
caused th young people much regret
and from the standpoint of a society
writer its failure to come to pass was
a sad misfortune. That one thing
was the Mardi Gras ball.
