THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JUNE 17. 1M7.
Dear Bee Readers:
1 wish each and every one of you
could have gone shopping with me
this week. Not only did the shops
"dress up" in their gayest summer
apparel, but "Old Sol" himself did, "his
hit" to help make things pleasant, for,
of course, we all feel more like shop
ping when the weather is radiantly
sunshiny. I did have the compan
ionship, though, of my friend Vir
giniaand a most enthusiastic little
person she proved to be over all the
pretty tilings we saw. Now, listen,
and I'll tell you about some of them:
T7TKGIXIA had purchased such a
pretty summer coat at Lamond's,
2d Floor Rose Bldg., so she was
"tickled to pieces" when I suggested
going there to see the new colored
wash skirts, which a little bird had
whispered to me were the smartest
skirt arrivals of the season, as indeed
they were. White and tan skirts with
huge kaleidoscopic dots; the colors so
happily combi' d skirts in Sports
stripes skirts of plaid or skirts
combining stripes and dots or other
splashy figures. In considering your
skirt requirements, you find every
skirt a picked value at Lamond's.
WHAT is more essential to lite
joys of summertime than pretty
dresses? The last time Mr. Reynolds
of Benson & Thome's was in New
York he was fortunate in securing
some truly exception.il wash dresses
for girls 8 to 16 years, in linens,
piques, feps and chambrays some,
with quaint little coatees, delightfully
fresh lawn and organdy guimpes and
bits of hand and machine work and,
imagine it, only $3.50. If in regu
lar stock they would sell for '$7.00.
Mothers will be glad to hear this
news, for who would take the trouble
to make dresses when such charming
styles can be had for so little? There
ire a few dainty, frilly nets very spe
cially priced $6.95.
A STOXISHED! Yes. the low
prices I found on some lovely
Japanese cotton crepe kimonos at The
Nippon Importing Co., 218 S. 18th St.,
truly surprised me and the kimonos
were embroidered, too, in delightful
effects of birds and flowers.
WOULDN'T it be splendid if there
were some way to place the pic
ture in this paper, showing you the
beautiful texture of the silks the col
ors the smart cuts to the new Sports
Silk Suits which the F. W. Thome
Co. is showing in their exclusive shop
for women at 1812 Farnam? An
Eastern designer has fashioned a suit
of heavy apricot satin with a monk's
hood collar and skirt of white La
Jerz, which could make its entree into
"Our Best Set" anywhere. There's
a wonderful array of silk sweaters at
this shop in daffodil yellow, old blue,
mid-summer rose and Kelly green
with sumptuous collars and numerous
rows of shirring at the waist line to
add the desired fullness and, oh, but
I was astonished when I glanced at

THE lady who wrote from Fair--

a nice, convenient place to lunch when
in Omaha will be perfectly delighted
with the cuisine at The Flatiron Cafe.
Virginia and I had a most appetiz
ingly dainty lunch there yesterday
and, oh, what) a joy it was to sit
down in such a quiet, refined atmos
phere. The snowy table cloth was
spotless the silver .bright and the
china dainty. And, ny the way, the
luncheons are only 35 cents.
CHEERS1 A sale on wardrobe

boxes! Coming so opportunely at

HERE'S a bit of shop gossip that
will certainly interest you. Mr.
Napier told me that on Monday and
Tuesday he will offer a line of white
Nile cloth, high-laced boots, with
cloth-covered French heels, turn soles
and short vamps, for the very humble
price of $3.90. The sizes are 2', to 8,
widths AA to B. Cash mail orders
prepaid. This offer is doubly attrac
tive, coming from such an exclusive
establishment as Napier's Booterie
TUNE is devoted to brides and
" flowers. I realized this at Lee
Larmon's Flower Shop the other day
when I saw a bride's and her brides
maids' bouquets just ready to be
sent to the scene of a wedding. Any
bride will be more than complimented
why I believe she'll go into actual
ecstasies when she receives her
"shower" from Larmon's. Not only
are his flowers grouped artistically,
but they're always the choicest blos
soms obtainable. In the Fontenelle

the war if both countries pull to

"The best asset and wealth of Italy
is its working spirit that the war has
awakened. The nobility of Italy have
learned in the trenches that work is
not a disgrace, and all are eager to
leave off their old custom of cane
carrying and party dancing.
"The other fellows in the trenches,
who have always worked more or
less for a living are going to come
out of the war graduates of a fine
working school and they are going to
go to work in the shops as killed
"From an American point of view,
Italy has become a fine market for
iron, steel, coal, cotton, electrical
equipment, for mechanical tools, for
heavy machinery tools of all kinds.
Before the war Germany sold largely
of these materials here, but now the
Italians are going it alone. They
have developed self-reliance as a na
tional asset, and this lasting result of
the war should improve the market
for American products.

A T Thotnpson-Belden's we saw the
new summer modes in bathing
suits. My I they are good looking and
comfortable, too. Father Neptune
and the mermaids will surely have
favorable comments to make when
donned in these sea clothes we enjoy
the pleasure the water atlords. Oh.
dear, how they have improved on tin
old familiar stuff of blue flannel with
white braid. This year Thompson
Belden's have secured scores of new
styles in knit suits, from tiny midget
suits for 2-year-olds to large suits
for matronly mothers and in such
pretty color , too. Then there are
mohair suits, serviceable as cwell as
attractive. And what the wild waves
won't say about the pretty caps from
this store won't be worth knowing
so roguish and pert they are. One
had a little purse attachment doubly
fastened for the security of valuables.
THIS is KIMONO WEEK at the
W. H. Eldridge Importing Com
pany, 1318 Farnam. Look for their
big display ad in the Society Section
telling aboui this event.
I WAS so interested in the new
VUDOR porch shades at Orchard
& Wilhelm's, for one can make their
porch into a delightful, airy out-door
room with this exclusive ventilation
device. It may be made into a break
fast room, sun parlor, living room or
sleeping porch, keeping out the sun's
rays and enabling you to enjoy the
health-giving out-doors air and best
of all, it requires only a small expen
diture to equip your porch with
VUDOR porch shades.

trade is salesmanship, and this is
where trade commissions could do
much good, by securing closer gov
ernment co-operation, by regulating
tariffs, by revising commercial laws,
by bringing closer together the busi
ness people of the respective nations,
by using expert information for the
establishment of credits. What my
firm thinks of Italy is indicated by
the fact that its first European branch
was established in Genoa, October
last, prior by four months to its
Petrograd branch. Of course Genoa
is a big shipping center for all of
"While the Americans in Italy are
not idle, trade commissions of other
nations, such as Japan, are active. A
good deal of Italy's new trade will go
to South America, but the credit ex
tensions possible in the United States
shoajd be an advantage. The Italians
appreciate this fact, but I doubt if
anybody, however, in all Europe
knows that the internal commerce of
the United States is so enormous that
we could do very well without any
foreign trade whatever.

Virginia, when I took her into Arnold

just one big exclamation point liefore
we finished our visit over all tin
lovely things in jewelry. "Do tell me,

is the pleasant little saleswoman
there, "the price of these exquisite

on our shopping tour Friday. Lucien

has some fiber silk shirts that look
exactly like silk," I told her, "wear

They're only $4.50 and, then, I like
to go to Stephens', for one certainly
does receive courteous service there.
Virginia bought the shirts and John
was highly pleased with the purchase.

The coal situation in this war showed
it how helpless it is, for instance, with
steam instead of electric power. Its
national poverty in industries is today
registered by the exchange value of its
money, which loses some 30 per cent
abroad. It is courageously preparing
to increase its industries, such as silk,
to make its soil produce more wheat
