Winter Dancing Club
- Finishes Its Career
With Picnic Supper
The requiem of the Winter Dane
kig'tlub will soon be sung .and the
.. last tad rites will take place Wednes
day evening. A picturesque spot
overlooking the Elkhorn river has
been chosen, where the pretty girls
and jolly young fellows who com
pose the club's membership will bury
the happy memories of all their good
times in laughter and jollity.
This little coterie of merry-makers
have been friends for a number of
years and most delightful have been
the little dances they have given in
the snappy winter evenings at Harte
hall, and when the summer breezes
blew at the different, clubs.
But the exieencies of war have

scattered the young men to the four
corners of the world, and in conse
quence there has been a hurrying and
scurrying to find the proper number
of the sterner sex at each party. It
seems significant that the first presi
dent of the club, Captain Taylor
Belcher, is now in France, hile the
treasurer. Captain Walter S. Byrne,
is stationed near Troy, N. Y. And
so it has gone with many of the
young men, and although the offi
cers from Fort Qmaha have been in
vited to. the dance, it is not quite
the same as in those merry old days
before Kaiser Wilhelm took such an
active interest in our affairs.
If you can be at the southwest cor
ner of Elmwood park Wednesday
evening, just as the birds are chirp
ing their good-night songs ...id the
sun's golden rays begin to cast long
shadows on the grass, you will find
a jolly crowd of young fellows and
girls, with picnic hampers full of
delectable dainties, bound for their
nirnie orrnnnrla rhra thev have
one last good time together before
the Winter Dancing ciud Decomes
only a memory.

Packages Versus Bulk
There are four important economic
reasons for packing food products in
small containers for the household.
These reasons briefly stated are:
First The conservation of health
through the sanitary superiority of
package foods. x
Second The conservation of food
by reason of increased keeping quali
ties of package foods.
Third The conservation of time
both in store and home through
greater convenience of package
Fourth The conservation of
wealth through the economy of pack
That package foods are superior to
bulk foods from the standpoint of
sanitation cannot be disputed.
Because he does not need to weigh
and pack them, the grocer is enabled
to handle a stock of package goods
and wait on his customers with a min

achievement. The grocer handling

stocks which are more easily acces

Old Sol may smile his approval ot
Milady, in all the daintiness of her
summer attire, but if she hasn't one
of these sheltering affairs hoisted o'er
her fair head he is bound to leaye the
imprint of a tiny freckle on the end
of her tip-tilty nose.
When one vistits the shops these
summer days, one sees with a little
catch of the breath, wonder creations
in parasols, fashioned-from the airiest
of summer fabrics. Parasols of chif
fon, organdy and georgette, lovely in
their witchery of fluttery ruffles, cord
ings, and dainty' flower-like trim
mings. One noted whilst touring the shops
this morning, of sand georgette, was
daintiness .exemplified with its rows
of corded shirrings and tiny plaited
ruffles. Bunches of velvety English"
violets perched here and there atop
this exquisite parasp) added a note
of unexpected charm.
Organdy Parasols. ,
Organdy, which may well be.called
the queen of summer fabrics, is highly
favored for parasols, and one cannot
imagine a more delightful picture
than a pretty girl attired in a frock of
this fresh, crisp material, with a para
sol to match the shade of her dress.
Rows' of snowy white piccfted rib
bon ruffles were effective in their
accomplishment, when ,they tried to
produce a parasol which would be as
lovely as the heart could wish.
Another new effect was created
by the use of Irish green taffeta,
which is put on in fringed ruffles.
Paisley silk parasols "are indeed
lovely, and breathe'an old-time quaint- '
But, have you seen a bagasol, ma
cherie? Ah, you'll be sure to want
one, I Jcnowl These clever, two-in-.
one affairs are as jaunty as can be.
You have a smart looking parasol
when the bagasol is elevated, but just
try closing it, and dropping the .han
dles inside Presto! a bag of such :
pleasing style, that you'll just be
dying to carry your knitting in it to
a party, and giving your friends the
surprise of their lives.
Little vanity bags of ribbon, or
silk, are attached to the wrist straps
of some partyfied parasols.
