Lovely Frocks Worn at Wedding.
Rain prevented some of the newest
and handsomest gowns of Omaha's
fashionable set from appearing at the
Country club opening last Saturday
evening. More rain scared other new
frocks away from the Red Cross ball
Tuesday evening. Less rain last
night turned the tide, so that new
gowns were seen in profusion at the
beautiful Brinker-Burkley wedding.
It really was a shame that the rain
persisted long; there might never
again have been so suitable a time to
wear them, and so finally they braved
Green was one of the favorite col
ors for the new gowns, the material
of greatest popularity was fluffy tulle
combined with soft satin, and the
favorite trimmings were tiny French
flowers. Miss Elizabeth Davis wore
one of these fairy creations of green
tulle trimmed t with French flowers.
Its simplicity merely enhanced the
beauty of the gown and of its wearer.
Mrs. Harold Pritchett had a modish
gown of green chiffon with over
drapes of lace caught up in loops on
the skirt. Mrs. Glenn Wharton wore
a wonderful gown of peacock green
made with a long pointed train.
Mrs. Charles T. Kountze wore an
exquisite gown of white and silver.
Mrs. Dick Stewart had one of the
most beautiful gowns of any. It was
made of a lovely shade of rose satin
with bouffant skirt and was simply
trimmed with French flowers. Mrs.
Moshier Colpetzer's gown had a
distinctly new touch in the form of
beading on the delicate, white chiffon
which formed the foundation.

Dolls Given Kiddies at
Party at Benson & Thome's
Come, lassies and Isds,
Take leave of your dads,
And away to ths May-pole hie.
So goes a merry old song, dating
back to 1671, when the rural dance
about the Maypole was an annual
festivity in Merne Olde tnglande.
Everv Omaha lassie and laddie

tend the Maypole party at Benson &
Ihornes yesterday afternoon, whicli

a truly patriotic affair, with miniature

After the dance about the May

Moving Tenant Knows Not
What to Do With Booze
"May a tenant move his family sup
ply of liquor when he leaves one
house to move into another?" is a
question with which the real estate
firm of A. P. Tukey & Son is wres
tling. A tenant of a house for which this
firm is agent wants to move. His
basement is pretty well packed with
bottled goods. He is afraid to move
it on a van with the rest of his be
longings lest the police seize it in
transit. He is afraid to carry it over
by hand lest he be suspected of boot
legging. He is afraid to leave it in
the basement after he moves, for fear
thieves will get it, and since it is an
outlawed commodity, he fears he
would have no standing in court if he
attempted to prosecute the thief.

" where the brook and river meet."
That is a sad day for the house and the
people in it when the little maid therein
holds in the crook of her arm her painted and
flaxen doll, and puts it to bed for always
because Love has come.
Daniel Cupid is a barbarian just as all
fat babies are and with his careless hands
he nails up, by her yellow curls, a little maid's
childhood and looses away with it his singing
shaft straight to its faithful sawdust heart.
And, laughing, succeeds to favor.
