Omaha women show their individ
uality in many different ways. One,
in particular thaa I have noticed is
the partiality which several promi
nent social leaders have for a certain
flower. Veryoften when asked what
the centerpiece for their luncheon or
dinner table will be they reply:
"Oh, my favorite flower, of course,
I never use any other."
One or two of them, always use
the same flower in their corsage"
Mrs. Ward Burgess is seldom seen
in the afternoon or evening without
a lovely corsage of Mrs. Ward roses.
Mrs. Charles Kount2e shows her
fondness for the delicate pinks and
blues of the sweetpea by frequently
wearing a fragrant cluster pinned, to
her furs as she attends to the many
matters which make up her busy day.
Mrs. Halleck Rose, prominent club
woman, also shows her fondness for
the old gold shade of the Mrs. Ward
Miss Allen Hostess.
Miss Mable Allen was hostess at a
shower and tea at her home in honor
of Miss Ruth Slabaugh, who will be a
November bride. The shower was
orobably one of the most unique that
has yet been given for this brideto-be,
as the guests were requested to bring
cosmetics of all kinds. Twenty guests

"Honest I mean," and I tried to
persuade him that he was mistaken,
that he lived in the same kind of a
criss-cross world that all the rest of
us lived in. But his emphatic reply
"Yes, 'honest,' I mean, too."
No use to argue with him for he
would have his way. And he isn't a
"beau" or anything of that kind. He
was not afraid of what the women
might say of him. He is just one of
those out-spoken men who takes more
pleasure in rapping one over the head
with a heavy remark than in smooth
ing down the rough fur.
"In the matter of credits," he con
tinued, "I have found women honest,
almost without exception.

careful to read these ads as they
should be, they would be the profiteers

In this particular store, I learn,
styles are always the latest and best.
It carries complete stocks of various
kinds of merchandise.
From the best informed buvers in
fOmaha I learn that:
Colors for autumn and winter are
somber and include raveil, dark blue,
caramel bown, marmot and corinth
blue, taupe, mustard and cinnamon.
The suits in these colors are beauti
fully made and high clavss. There are
blouses to match these colors, but it is
wise to wear the suit when matching
a blouse, as the different shades fight
worse than Irish neighbors.
Gowns for evenincr wear are
brighter, one called Americaine being
particularly pleasing, lurquois blue
and shell pink seem to be in favor
if one is to judge from the wonder
ful assortment of new gpwns arriving
for the charity ball.

says that, (considering the number
of women shoppers compared to the
men), we are quite desirable as cus

they were not only to debate whether
motherhood is to be supported by the

It is altogether probable that many
who have traveled every winter in the
past will not do so this season, under
pressure from the high costs of living,
cry, and the patriotic urge that
prompts to buy Liberty bonds, says
Kathleen Hills in Leslie's. On the
other hand, there are always those
with plenty of money and time who
will travel no matter what happens.
And perhaps in these days they ar&
wise, for there are many things that
most of us are trying to forget
many of us have parted with loved
ones who may never come back;
some at least will want to forget the
nerves that the excitements of these
days have reminded them so forcibly
they possess. Travel as a balm for
wounds has been found to satisfy and '
soothe and woo forgetfulness.
Lots of things in this winter's jour
ney may be changed, but, war or no
war, America's wonders still remain,
as attractive as ever. No war, no
matter how cataclysmic, can rob the
Grand Canyon of its power to thrill
the spectator; there would be no mil
itary value in besieging the Apache
Trail country, and making democracy
save the Germans' from themselves
could not be settled in Yosemite Val
ley. No, the old America-first places
are just as attractive as ever, or more
so by reason of their remoteness from
war's alarms. But getting to them

near the home, and reared 250 chick-

their table during the winter.
The girls at the home put up 200
quarts of jams and jellies for the win
ter, under the supervision of Mrs.
Sexton in charge of the home, and
Miss Francis Morris, cook. The
girls also preserved 50 quarts of sweet ,
corn, 25 quarts of peas and 25 quarts
of beans. .
The garden produced 150 bushels of
field corn to feed the chickens, 25
bushels of tomatoes, several bushels
of carrots.. 10 bushels of parsnips and
15 bushels of winter onions. The
home is well stocked for the winter x
