Society Watches Boy Scouu.
Omaha is touched to the heart by
the activity of its young Boy Scouts
in patriotic affairs. Almost every home
among society people has at least one
young man clad in khaki who is in
terested in the work and mothers tell
with pride, "My Willie took over
twenty subscriptions in one day."
Some one remarked that the old-
fashioned boy who broke windows,
ate "all day suckers" and kicked the
family cat is gone forever. The boys
of today are helping their country and
worKlllg ana arming iikc men.
The Bov Scouts of France are said

A little boy in Chicago won the
hearts of the workers at one of the
base hospital units the other day. The
women were working away at making
bandages, studying for Red Cross
exams and the like when a woman en
tered the rooms with her tiny son,
not so tall as an ordinary table. The
mother inquired whether Red Cross
memberships were tor sale mere ana
when told that they were, the young
ster on tiptoe reached up to empty
on the table a pockettull of pennies
which he had earned, by running er
rands, scrubbing steps, wiping disnes,
sweeping walks, anything that would
bring him Red Cross pennies. The
women were so touched with his pa
triotism that they stood the little man
on- a table in their midst and gave
three hearty feminine cheers for the
little hero before he walked modestly

Travel Into Inland China.
Word has been received by Mr. 0.
W. Eldridge from his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Eldridge, who are
spending the year in the Orient, that
they will leave Yokohama June 18
for a journey which will undoubtedly
be the most interesting, though haz
ardous one they have ever attempted
on their many visits to the land of
the heathen Chinee. The trip, which
will be made almost entirely by water,
will take them into a part of the in

to wear our new organdie
yet, but clever designers
have already planned our winter
wardrobes. What woman would
fail to look charming in this
"wonder suit" of green velours
de laine, quaintly collared in
youthifying gray squirrel? The
stitching of green brings a curve
or two to the garment, whose
smartness lies partly in its sweep
of straight line. The Eton jacket
effect, which the" coat produces,
is echoed in the little bell-top
upper sleeves, The squirrel reap
pears at the bottom of the coat
and from under it hangs a tight
hemmed plain skirt. One of the
features worth noting is the flow
ered satiji lining, beyond which
there is a superlining of green
chiffon. The little feather hat of
soft beige produces the effect of
a nesting bird.
