Such an enlightening talk did I hear
on this subject a few days ago from
Mr. Albert Edholm on the occasion
of a visit to his beautiful jewelry
store on Harney and Sixteenth
streets. "The woman of discrimi
nating taste," said Mr. Edholm, "is
quite as particular about the modern
izing of her lovely jewels as she is
about changing the style and cut of
her sealskin coat she does not wear
jewelry that is passe." He then
showed me some diamonds which had
been taken from their old-fashioned
gold mountings, re-cut and set in plat-,
inum (that superlatively eleirant and
sympathetic setting for diamonds),
and I must say I( was simply en
tranced over this ' nobler beauty ' of
ensemble. If you have any beautiful
old jewelry to, be "made over," do by
all means take it to Mr. Edholm. His
long experience and artistic ability
place him as one of the leading jew
elers of the Middle West.

meeting a friend of mine at' the mat
inee,! who was wearing a corsage of
orchids and violets. "Lee Larmon's,
of course," she replied; "he's really an
artist you know in' the arrangement
of these beautiful bouquets." I quite
agreed with her, for I've seen sev
eral different corsage effects he has
made, and each one shows an indi
vidual charm. : I'm specially fond of
his Colonial corsapea made of Ward
rosebuds arfd narcissus. , His shop is
in the Fontenelle hotel.

girls who taxed the capacity of the
work shop the first evening it opened

Nine o'clock and closing time ar
rived before the girls were aware of
the flight of the hours. Mrs. Frank

shop, stood at the door to give a
hearty handclasp to each of the girls
as they left and to urge them to
come agai. You'd have thought it
was a party from which you were
"We will. We will," they chorused.
