Cosmos, he voiced a truth that could apply to us, as a race.
Too prone to place too much importance in ourselves, and to
imagine that we individually are the center of the universe, around
which the rest of the family, humble satellites, revolve to obey and

Years ago, a man of God first arrested my attention to this phase
of human nature, in a sermon on the text "He saved others, Himself
He could not save."
I pondered on this. "Why," I asked myself, "should any one who
had the power to save others, not be able to save himself?" Divinity,

"In the two weeks which I have
just spent in Nebraska," says the
patriotic tourist, "I have seen that the
people formerly accused of pro-Germanism
have undergone a complete
change of heart. Every one is proud
of this state. Easterners have stopped
talking about the indifference of the
middle west." ,
Mrs. Arnold spoke on Thursday
afternoon both at the Chamber of
Commerce and before a meeting of the
Americanization committee of the
Douglas County Council of Defense.
"American industry has sent agents
to foreign lands to' bring laborers to
this country with promises of liberty
and equality. It is up to us to see
that these people have their rights.

pages and pages to tell you all the
bargain news of the week, but as I'm
only allowed a few columns, will try
and give you some pointers which I
hope will be helpful.
The price ticket on some lovely
summer merchandise I saw this

prove magnetic enough to attract
throngs of women who are trying to
be patriotically economical.
Now is surely the time to buy!

FOR real summer attractiveness
there is nothing can quite equal
a sports skirt of silk or satin. I
noted by the tickets on several stun
ning skirts in F. W. Thome's win
dows at 1812 Farnam that the price
reducer's pencil had been busy. For
instance, a handsome Baronette
skirt of broad black and white ver
tical stripes, which had been $30, was
re-marked $1975. A" model which
has won admiration because of its
unique stylefulness has stripes of
black satin and white taffeta, which
to vary the monotony of life have
chosen to run horizontally and be of
graduated widths this has been re
duced from $25 to $16.50. A skirt
of natural pongee, with a futurist
border of hollyhocks really very,
very lovely, which was $30, is now
REALLY for comfort and coolness
there is nothing like a dark col
ored voile frock; it is alwaysn per
fect taste and can be worn yith ease
and assurance anywhere. Thompson,
Belden's has an alluring array of
these summery fabrics in fashionable
foulard patterns, most of which have
a background of blue, with white,
cerise, green or other colors in dots
and figures. This is priced 50c, 75c
and $1 a yard. I'm so fond of ging
ham plaid voiles, too, and there are
some very attractive patterns shown
at this store at 50c a yard. Their dis
play of colored plaid and striped
skirtings is also quite worthy of men
tionmost of these are in gabardine
weave at 75c, 85c and $1 (1 yard wide)
but there are some colored striped
piques which are beautiful indeed
T F I had only space to tell you of
the wonderful hats I saw at The
Nebraska Clothing Company's Milli
nery Shopthis week! but when you
see them for yourselves I know your
enthusiasm will grow by leaps and
bounds, just as mine did. Sparkling
with vivacity is a group of silk sports
hats, which are as chic and "different"
as can be. Many of these are made
cntkely of ribbon, others are ribbon
and straw combined. One particu
larly delightful.-confection has white
taffeta bands alternating with tiny
bands of purple straw, while the un
derbrim is lined with purple. A
jaunty white taffeta tam, a petal-pink
sailor of soft, noncrushable straw
with t double brim, Snd several very
dashing chaoeaux of Kelley green
silk ribbon fairly seemed to say
"choose the most becoming." Some
distinctive new Georgette hats are
shown with transparent brims and

YOU'RE almost sure to catch it the
moment you enter the Freling &
Steinle Luggage Shop at 1803 Far
nam! What? Why, the desire, the
spirit, to want to venture forth into
the great world of travel. I feel it
every time I see all of that regiment
of bags, trunks and suitcases. The
thing which interests me most, how
ever, is a Hartmann trunk, which
must be of the greatest convenience
imaginable when taking a trip. The
makers of these famous trunks have
taken a great deal of pride in the spe
cial features the plush cushion top
to protect dresses of the daintiest fab
rics, the shoe and hat boxes which
can be easily reached, and large,
roomy drawers which will hold an
entire wardrobe. The Hartmann
spells "perfettion" in trunks.
