ID you have an enjoyable time
last w&ek?.. With such a full
week how could you have help
ed it? Of course, to begin
with, it was semi-centennial
week, featured by a sure-enough cele
bration down at the capital, city, but
then, very few of the women folks
were interested in that. Mcn-about-town.
shook hands with their old
friend "Teddy", a fact not particu
larly interesting in sbciety, don't ye
know. Truth to tell, the very days
that the celebrating was being done
in Lincoln the crust of Omaha's social
pie attended the all-absorbing canning
school in the high- school .building.
The story is in circulation, a man who
vows that with his own ears he heard
a woman say it, told the tale, that af
ter her pah of peas had been cooked
ten minutes (was it ten or more?) the
woman asked her instructor whether
she should take them off and wash
them I My, the man thought that was
During the middle of the week we
were treated to a little diversion in
the form of driving races out at the
county fair grounds. That was per.
fectly charming sport, you must
know, with thej:xcitemcnt of "hosses'
(they say that no self-respecting fan
calls a horse a horse, it is always a
!'hoss"), the fun of watching the
brightly garbed darky jockies, the
shouting of the "Coney Island" min
and all other attendant circumstances.
Flag day was a specialty gala oc
casion, for then society chose to grace
the races with its presence more than
at any prcvious time. The boxes were
filled not only with racing men. wear

smartly dressed women. One of the
most fetching costumes seen was the
one worn by Airs. George brandeis

furs were as appropriate as becoming,

fur scarf completely enveloped the up.

Miss Eugenie, Patterson was the cen
ter of a group of the younger set.
Pretty Miss Edna Pctersotr was
very much in evidence as head usher
and taker of Red Cross money, fot
all receipts above actual expenses,
about $1,000 in all, were turned over
to the local Red Cross chapter. She
and a bevy of other girls, among
whom two ot'the most strikingly
pretty were Mrs. Will Schono and
Miss Rita Chabot, acted as uhers fori
the boxes and later counted the pelf.
The judges' stand was hung with
large American flags, as befitted the
occasion, and one whole side was
painted in red, white and blue. Most
exciting and most romantic, if not
most admirable of the races, were the
running races at the close. Our fa
vorite jockey was a little bow-legged
darkey with a round jolly face, who
looked like a boy, but who had little
tuffs of gray hair sticking out from
under his pink and green satin jockey
Lest, however, you should think
that the races were the only iinpor-'
tant events of the pasj week in Oma
ha, we call attention to the artistic
performance given yesterday after
noon tor the benefit of the Red Cross
?nd National League for Woman's
Service, Mrs. Myron Learned's na
ture masque, "The Spirit of Walden
Wood."- Who could have failed to
enjoy that pretty open air perform
ance! It was alive with the lightsome
spirit of its charming author, whom
we are proud to have in our midst.

the regular dinner dances at each of
the Country clubs large dinner dance
parties were not only booked, hut
actually entertained. This weather is
just the element for devoted dancers,
because the slight chill of .the night
air is a biting1 invitation to trip the
light fantastic. Cool lake shores and
club houses, that arc bare and forlorn
at most hours of the day, become sud
denly populous when the orchestra
sends forth its tuneful notes bearing
the invitation to conic dance.
Monday night perhaps the largest
dancing party ot'-the season will be
given, because the company which
gives it is excedin&; great. This is the
reunion dance of high sihool alumni
it Happy Hollow club. Usually Ht
such affairs the young alumni ate the.
most eager to congregate, but here
and there will be seen a group of old
timers who have not forgotten the tics
which bind thm to O. H. s. ,
The regular weekly benefit (ymi
might think that we intend -to make
a church announcement) will be the
bridge party for Red Cross nd war
relict which Mrs. J. J. McMullcn and
Mrs. John T. Yates are giving at their
combined apartments on Monday.
Those who have had invitations! are
counting themselves fortunate, be
cause these hostesses have a reputa
tion for delightful functions. Tuesday
will be the resumption of get-together
bridge parties at the Field club. Mrs.
A.V. Shotwell, who managed the en
joyable parties held last year among
Field club worfien, is again at the
helm, which fact insures a successful
