THE BEE: OMAHA, THURSDAY, APRIL 19. 1917,
New CUm for Commiuarut. ' J
One of the qualititi of good liter-
turc, the students of that art-tell Vi,
is a "universal appeal." Allow me to
claim that one' quality for my effusion
todav. for it deals with what Omaha
women are Joing for the Red Cross!
and the National League tor woman
Service, a matter of interest to all of
us just now.
x A group of girls, members of the
Browning club of Central High
school and some ofr the faithful mem
bers of the Junior Musical club, as you
no doubt remember, were the only
Red Cross members in Omaha at the
time of the first stir for Red Cross
work this winter. They have bee,n
working away steadily all this lime,
and since the organization of other
Red Cross movements have co-operated
in splendid style. Their work
has been so neatl; and carefully done
that Mrs. Charles T. Kountze, in
charge of the first aid and bandage
rolling division, complimented them
highly upon it. They have various
schemes for raising the money for the
purchase of materials and have had
several successful candy sales for this
purpose. They meet every Friday
afternoon after school in the Brown
. The girls are eager for recruits who
will help them to increase their work.
Mrs. C. V. Axtcll, mother of one
of these girls, has organized a class
of twenty-five workers in the com
missary department under Mrs. R.
Beecher Howell. The list is com
plete with the exception of two
friends, who are out of town at pres

A Gown Fashioned by Chejuit
CHERUIT fashioned this gown of white moire ribbon and
white satin in broad alternate panels. The blouse starts out
with horizontal lines, which incline gradually to the diagonal
and curve about the waist in the intricate but graceful swathing
of the hiffh girdle. Satin forms the top and bottom of this blouse
and continues down into the soft sashes, which are tipped with
jet heads at one end and pearl at the other. The little central
panel, which is half concealed by the sash, is of the moire. Black
Chantilly lace cascades down the side panels of the skirt in grace
ful triple alliances. To make the skirt arrangement quite clear
we have drawn it for you, held out to its full width, but its bouffant
draperies fall very softly, with only a mere suggestion of the oval
What is Life's Holiday?
By ADA PATTERSON.
A European ruler was pushed gent
ly but firmly off his throne last month
and the world it -far 'on its way to
ward forgetting him. His realm is
readjusting itself and the former ruler
is doubtless happier than he ever was
the sovereign of a discontented
people. Something' of his piteous
swan song remains in the memories
of those who read it. ...
Let the people have their way, he
said. "1 want to live in my house
with the big garden. I always loved
The ruler, weak, ineffective, a fail
ure as he was, uttered the wish that is
in the hearts of most men and women,
his superiors in strength. It was a
lonitiiig for life's holiday. It was the
yeanling of harassed maturity for the
peace of old age.
Why dread agef As well dread
calm after a storm.
The nub of the matter is that we
dread the passing of the scepter of
strength. If our energy might re
main unimpaired none save a few
vain women would wish to avoid life's
evening, for, as to many twilight
is the most beautiful part of the day,
old age is the most inviting period
of life. .
But the bogie of lessening vigor, is
ever before us. That time when we
can no 'longer do the day's work
without weariness, when our heavier
tasks must be given to the younger
generation, when persons about us
make a manifest effort to spare our
efforts, is the day of dread to those
who feel much and think too little,
and that applies to ninety-nine of
every hundred of us.
Would we pity the man who is
going for a long vacation in the
woods or by the sea? Would we
sympathize with the woman who has
set sail for a long journey across the
western ocean, to loll for uncounted
months amid the poppies of the Ori
ent? On the contrary we would envy
them and covet their goods. Then
why sigh with those who have earned
such holiday? , ,
Old age is the" truly ' prosperous
jjeriod of th. well-regulated life.
Then, if ever, a man reaps the har
vest of histoilsome serving.-' Unlike
the young or middle-aged man, he

knows how 'much he can afford to
spend for his comfort and pleasure.
The enjoyment of the younger man
is disturbed by the fear of what may
happen before old age is reached; he
scans the horizon for the cloud that
heralds the "rainy day."
In the closing days of the winter I
tarried for a too short while in a
health and pleasure resort of the
south. Thither came Americans from
homes in every state of the union.
Most of them had passed the three
score mark and some had passed the
boundary of the fourth. The ample
trousers of the men showed a bowed
effect in legs. Most of them had
white beards, and seemed as proud
of them as women of their costly
ostrich plumes. One fact I noted.
Seldom was one of these men of the
curving limbs and the snowy white
beard alone. Beside him, leaning upon
his arm, or sometimes he might be
leaning upon hers, was a silver-haired
woman upon whose features was a
faint foreshadowing of the great
Passing an old pair, I caught a frag
ment of chat or a tender epithet
uttered in a voice that had lost its
sturdy timbre. It was the era of fine
companionship, following the stress
and harshness of earlier life. They
were sights to convert a bachelor of
either sex or any age to matrimony.
A man may be ever so self-sufficient,
a woman ever so self-reliant,
but as you begin to descend the steps
of life it is good and consoling to
borrow strength from a faithftrt arm.
Surcease of active cares, the time
for enjoyment of one's worldly goods,
