King Albert's sister, the duchess of
Bendtm, and her daughter, have spent
President Wilson on the Fourth of July:
"I should be very sorry to see Fourth of July celebra
tions omitted this year of all years. But at the same time,
I think they should take the simplest and most dignified
form, and that it would be in the public interest as well
as eminently good taste to make them as inexpensive as
possible. As July 4, 1776, was the dawn of democracy
for this nation, let us on July 4, 1918, celebrate the birth
of a new and greater spirit of democracy."

Bride Escapes Accident
Miss Katherine Gould, who is to be
married Saturday evening to Capt.
Robert Burns, was in an automobile
accident Wednesday evening while
driving with her father, Mr. H. K.

The wedding of Miss Katherine
Gould and Captain Robert Burns
which will take place Saturday eve
ning at All Saints' church, promises
to be one of the prettiest of the mili

attractive feature will be its sim

which we usually associate with white
satin and brides will not be issued,
Miss Gould and Captain Burns just
inviting their friends in an informal
way to attend the ceremony.
Bishop Arthur L. Williams will
read the "marriage lines. After the
ceremony Captain Burns and his
pretty bride will be whisked away to

Kountze, where the most delightful
little party imaginable will be given
in their honor, the guests including a
few of their most intimate friends.

will be just to say goodbye, and to
wish this charming couple happiness,

Surely clothes play -an important j
role in the dream life of a child! The -1
little girl dressed in pink silk, who
came out of one of the dream pack
ages in Carrie Jacob Bond's charm
ing "Sleepy Song," was the favorite
fantasy of many of us when we were";
small children. . '
"Once upon a time" as the fairy
stories all begin, children were prac
tically all dressed alike. A glimpse
backward at . the portraits in our
museums proves this but nowadays, '
there is as much ebb and flow in
juvenile j costumery as in that of
grownups. The dress, coat and hat -worn
last season are quite passe by
the time the new season begins.-
The different children's departments '
in the Omaha stores are showing .
styles in frocks that certainly accentu-'
ate a note of feminine charm for -little

The other day I was in one of our
shops in quest of xlothes for a wee

verily it was a most difficult matter
to make a choice. I'd almost decided "

which its creator had bestowed on
it the bit of smocking under the
shaped yoke; the collar and cuffs of
pale blue voile, finished with button
holing and tiny crotched edging, and
the fussy little smocked . pockets
then when she produced a striking "
blue plaid gingham, the skirt of which
was brought up in points to meet a
cunning, hemstitched blouse of crispy,
white organdy, I immediately began
to waver in my decision. - ?
One does not often connect laven- ,
der with 10-year-olds, but one of the
smartest dresses I saw that day had
a quaint little jacket of violet batiste,
nnisnea witn loose, coarse pansy-purr
pie buttonholing, -which accompanied '

with lavender dots. v -
