Mrs. Killoack reviewed the first chan-
; ter of "What Literature Can Do for
Me," and the remainder of the pro
gram dealt with the Indians and their
relation to the early history of Iowa.
The effort was made to bring out the
point that prejudice has blinded the
whites to t lie good qualities of the In
dians. ThLs was due no doubt to the
fact that the Indian was not really
known by the white until after, he had
suffered great injustice. Mrs. Pur
dum spoke of the Indians oi Iowa and
Mrs. M. B. Snyder dealt with In
dian treaties affecting Iowa. .She
pointed out the fact that not one of
the., unsuccessful treaties was made
when both sides were sincere in their
promises. Mrs. Goodrich told of the

Hawk and the Black Hawk war, Mrs.
C. G. Saunders of the Spirit Lake

TLE Thanksgiving's over! and
now we really begin to realize the
nearness of Christmas. As I passed
thr.ough the stores and shops this
week Gift Suggestions just popped
out every where. Predominating, as
should be this war-Christmas, arc
gifts that will give joy and comfort
to our brave boys "over there,"' or
who will soon be on their waj to the
battle-front. This week marked the
openings of the Top Shops, crowded
with thousands of things to gladden
the heart of -childhood, but do you
know that PATRIOTISM even ex
tends to toys this season, for with
scarcely an exception, everything is
"MADE IN AMERICA," and proud
am I to say it; never have dollies,
games, play furniture, electric and
mechanical toys, etc., been so delight
ful, and- what's more have substan
tial qualities never found in toys sent
to us from over the seas. Surely
parents will welcome gifts for their
children which do not have to be
thrown away 'as utterly useless a
week or two following Christinas.
THREE CHEERS FOR MADK-IN-AM
ERICA TOYS! And for the
"grown-ups" are practical gifts and
many objects of art from the hands
of gentle people who dream beauti
ful dreams and produce beautiful
things. Let us then BUY GIFTS
and record in a tangible way our love
and regard for relatives and friends.
BEWILDERING surprises greeted
me on every hand as I was pi
loted by Miss Kerr from one show
case to another full of fascinating
Christmas novelties in the'splcndid
jewelry section of Brandeis' Store last
Friday morning. Indeed, one may
always count on the latest fads being
there. "To please a man" there is a
solid gold belt bucklevery, very
handsome! and when engraved with
his monogram 'twill certainly appeal
to his manly heart. Specially nice to
give your Soldier Sweetheart is a ster
ling silver photo case. For HER
there are gifts too numerous to men
tion, but when you visit this depart
ment be sure to ask them to show you
their exhibition of GENUINE
IVORY toilet articles really made
from African elephant tusks! it's
FL:RS! Ah, did'st ever notice
whpn ihpv arc mentioned how
a woman pricks up her ears? Yes.
nothine ever takes the interest of
woman as the subject of FURS. And
this year they will be the truly ap
preciated gift, for the use of furs has
become so universal among well
dressed women that no dress is quite
effective without them. You'd be in
terested I know in the elegant and
exclusive furs that are being shown
for the holiday time at F. W.
Thome's Uptown Shop, 1812 Far
nam street. There are collars, stoles
and muffs of rich, lustrous $ilky
black and taupe lynx, capes and col
larettes of beautiful Hudson seal;
the latter sometimes having a touch
of regal ermine to add to it's becom
ingness. Genuine marten and skunk,
those furs which add beauty to any
face, are shown in several fine muffs
and neck-pieces, besides many other
A gift booklet with an attractive
cover and containing "Practical Sug
gestions for the Housewife," makes
a nice gift to a newly-wed friend.
THE style-seeking woman who
has been waiting for a "less-than-rcgular-price"
suit event, will
welcome the news that Esmond's
late Fall and Winter models are now
very radically reduced in price. Su
perbly fashioned, fur-trimmed and
made of the most modish of mate
rials you'll be sure to find YOUR
own particular model among the as
semblage. Three that I particularly
admired just last week, priced $75,
$45 and $37.50 are now only $50, $30
and $25. Just think of it! ,
The early shopper has better se
lection and better service; she avoids
the congestion and hurry of eleventh
hour Christmas buying; she has at
her command a more experienced
sales force. (
THE Christmas Spirit is surely as
serting itself in Lucien Stephen's
Shop, at 19U1 Farnam street, for there
is an endless variety of gift sugges
tions for all the men of your family.
Ilis holiday neckwear is now in and
i specially attractive this season.
There's also a new line of attractive
bath robes and Khaki Christmas nov
elties for your Soldier Boy.

Cheerful and blight
Will set each days living
And loving aright
Somehow or other
In such days as these
One strives ajiother
More dearly to please
EVERYWHERE one turns
"Conservation" greets one's eye;
ONE tho't she would be sensible
No Christmas gifts to buy
But this she found
In looking round
No proper way at all.
How could she foster Christmas joy
By seeming quite so "small?"
"Why no! It will be sensible
To buy with thought and care
And here are some suggestions
Unite worth while, 1 declare!"
HA N I) KERCH! E US tliey are a
part of every Christinas! and no
wonder, for they are gifts mailed
most easily, selected with , the least
time and effort and bestowed with
1 lie most satisfaction to both giver
and receiver. 1 spent such a de
lightful time this week 'making in
selection of Christmas handkerchiefs
from the wonderful collection at
Thompson-Bclden's, and do you
know, in spite of the advance of price
in linen articles, I found the handker
chiefs at this store very reasonable.
Pure linen handkerchiefs with dainty
colored borders for 25c, of exquisite
Madeira hand-embroidery 55c to
$.5.50, of French embroidery 50c and
up to $16.00, or if you wish to bestow
a gift with an intimate touch there
arc handkerchiefs marked with the
recipient's initials for 1 5c to 75c.
Amusing hankies with funny, little
figures and colored animals for Wee
Lads and Lassies 3 in a box, 25c to
50c. Besides these, are some spe
cially beautiful ones of Dticftess and
Rose point l,ace which you'll enjoy
' Something quite new, sensible and
decidedly giftie and only costiiig 75c,
is a muff-hanger done up in a pretty
gift box with this inscription:
"A hanger for your muff I send
I hope 'twill do it's duty
And hold your muff most careful!)
And so preserve its beauty."
WOULDN'T you be delighted to
find a set of furs in your stock
ing Christmas morning: 1 burse you
would! Now, Jnst let me suggest
that this evening after "Dad," or
"Husband" has settled down all
comfy to cigar and evening paper,
you whisper that you "happened to
see" the loveliest fur pieces at
Lamond's fashionable second floor
shop in the Securities Building.
Descant a bit on the fan1 that "all
the girls have new furs," and also
on the reasonableness of the furs at
this shop for that's really the truth!
I saw a cape of Nutria with those be
coming ties finished with fur balls
which I'm sure you'd like, but then
there arc other pieces equally as
A MILITARY "BOOT SPECIAL!
And wheu I tell you that this
event is going to happen this week at
Napier's, you'll want to pur on your
bonnets and make a bee line for that
fashionable Booteric. These clever
street boots with welt soles, one and
one-half inch hecis and eight and
one-half inch lace tops arc made
'over a new military last with a stylish
pointed toe. It's a style that's ex
tremely voguish just now and the
colors, Iiazel brown and "toncy" red
(in calfskin) are particularly smart.
These come in complete sies and
widths, but I would advise when or
dering by mail to take numbers from
your best fitting pair of shoes in or-
,1-- in cor-Hrn a nerfeet fit. Most for
got to tell you the price, which is the
biggest surprise of all $7.8o!

Flowers to cheer, we fain would
A DEAR friend in whom I put
great confidence as to "what's
what," returning from New York
this week tells me that women in the
cast are wearing corsages more than
ever ) Irs season, despite all the talk
about conservation, and this is be
cause it's more than necessary these
war limes to appear cheerful and
there's nothing like flowers to lend
a h;.ppv note to a costume. Flowers
truly add a chic touch of finality to
theater gown, and arc oh so attrac
tive with one's street costume. Have
you ever had the pleasure of wearing
one of Lee Larinon's distinctively
lovely corsages He's truly mi adept
iu creating artistic effects with Eng
lish violet";, lilies of the valley, sweet
peas, orchids and miniature roses. His
blower Shop is in "The Fontcnelle."

T UNDERSTOOD from "The
-- North Pole Daily News" that
Santa Clans was scheduled to arrive
at Orchard & Wilhelm's, so ! hied
myself over there last Wednesday
afternoon to see if the announcement
were true. Sure enough there was
the jolly, old fellow himself to heart
ily greet me, with a perfect bevy of
workers as busy as veritable bees, un
loading presents galore for the boys
and girls whose report cards had
been forwarded to him, showirg A
No. 1 conduct for the past year. Yes,
Santa Claus is there with enough
toys for every youngster in Omaha!
Heaps of things for tlie Big Boy
that's a regular fellow! Enough toys
to give every Big Girl a Merry
Christmas! A bully lot of things for
the Little Fellows! Dolls and other
things for Little Girls! Joys to
make every Baby gurgle with de
light Altho' I shop for ladies when
I a' shopping go,
I'm just as glad to shop for men
I like their togs you know.
TOEING a tailored season, one can -not
afford to wear anything which
is not absolutely correct, and the only
way to insure perfection in a tailored
suit is to have a reliable tailor make
it. That's why I'm recommending
to you Kneeter, The Tailor, 506
South Sixteenth street. He does
turn out the most wonderfully per
fect work. You'll be surprised at his
moderate mid-season prices.
NO SEEKER after Christmas gifts
can afford to "pass up" the
pretty little Japanese Shop of The
Nippon Importing company at 218
South Eighteenth street, for it's there
you can make "one war-time dollar
do duty of nine." Over on one tabic
are the prettiest, lacquered Sweet
Meat Boxes (Mr. Hoover would ap
prove, for they will conserve what
candy we have, and keep it fresh a
long time). A long table is piled
high with the most fascinating array
of baskets you ever saw, delightfully
trimmed with colored tassels, rings
and beads. Another table is devoted
to an exhibition of quaint and dainty
Nippon china tea sets. Besides these,
this shop has a host of lovely sill'
and cotton crepe gift kimono.
