Emergency Shower the Latest.
April shower for the bride are not
the damp dismal affairs that the words
suggest. In truth they are not the
effusions of Jupiter Pluvius, but in
the modern sense parties at which
iriends of the bride-to-be unite in
pouring into her delighted hands vari
ous tokens of their affection which
:r.ay prove useful to her in her new
position as matron of a house.
Some people have been accused of
priving showers for mercenary reasons.
Not long ago a dear middle-aged
madame threw up her hands in holy
horror over a shower which she had
attended. "Why," said she, "they
didn't ask intimate friends of the
young bride; they invited everybody,
irom the young people up to me, just
o see how much they could get I"
Serious charge 1
Some showers, however, are de
lightful and acceptable to all con-
ccrned. One of these affairs wis
the novel shower given by Miss Helen
Clifton last evening after her dinner
party in honor of Miss Dorotha
Skriver. You have heard of kitchen
and tin showers, miscellaneous and
fancy-work showers, linen showers
and apron showers, but have you ever
heard of an emergency shower? And
what do you think an emergency
shower is? Nota gift of gauze, ban
dages, court plaster and medicine for
the emergency drug case, but a shower
tor the emergency shelf of the pan
Pantries are put in modern houses,
are they not? The guests brought
bottles of pickles and jams and jel
lies in great number, so that for some
tune after the bride is in her new
home when friends call for tea on a
Sunday evening she need not fret,
for safely tucked away on the shelf
will be these emergncy supplies.

Butter from California
Weakens Chicago Prices
Chicago, April 20. Chicago, said
to be the center of the greatest dairy
district in the country, was treated
to a rarity today when butter from
California made its appearance on
Southwater street attracted by high
prices. It did its bit along with mild
spring weather to weaken prices.
Newest Novelty Boots
A New York authority on styles
says: "High boots in light shades
for summer have proved so prac
tical and stylish that they are in
demand more than ever, this
spring." Those we are showing
are absolutely authentic in style,
unequaled for wearing qualities
and especially appealing in rea
sonableness of price.
