have a well, playful child again.
If your child coughs, snuffles and
has caught cold or is feverish or has
a sore throat give a good dose of

QUITE like a leafy dell in the
autumn woods was the garage
in which the officers' hop was
given Saturday evening, for the
walls were completely covered with
scarlet and brown leaves. The lights
were softly shaded and the litt'e
hall was very artistic.
A unique feature of the affair was
a little wireless station where T-io--tenant
Powell received messages
which he read to the guests. In the
intervals between dances the girls
sent messages, having a gay time
composing the missives.
The dance was strictly informal
and no evening gowns .were worn.
Mrs. Jacob W. S. Wuest was most
attractive in a smart afternoon gown
of soft gray georgette. Tailored
suits and georgette blouses were
worn for the most part, with a num
ber of dark crepe gowns and numer
ous smart models of black velvet.
Among the younger girls who at
tended were Misses Erna Reed,
Esther Wiihelm, Edith Cofnish of
Little Rock, Ark., Eugenie Whit
more, Hazel Peterson, Corinne El
liott, Irene Carter and Marian Coad.
Many of the younger married set
were also there, included Messrs.
and Mesdames Sam Burns, Arthur
Remington, Wilson Low, T. F. Ken
nedy, Louis Clarke, Howard Bald
rige and W. R. McKeen.
Reception for Bridal Couple.
An interestng item in the society
columns of the Nashville Daily
Banner gives a description of a bri
dal reception given by Col. and Mrs.
Aaron Bergeda, who have recently
returned from their wedding trip.
Mrs. Bergeda was formerly Miss
Tonnette Blotcky of Omaha, her
marriage to Col. Bergeda taking
place early in October.
The formal reception was given at
the home of Colonel and Mrs. Ber
geda in the southern city, and was
a very brilliant affair. The Iride
was very lovely in an orchid satifi
gown, her only ornament a brooch
of diamonds. She carried a shower
bouquet of orchids, the color of
these exotic flowers harmonizing
with the shades of her gown.
In the receiving line were the
bridesmaids, Miss Sophia Bergeda,
sister of the bridegroom, Misses Lily
and Kate Bergeda and Miss Ella
Roth. The young women wore their
bridesmaid's gowns of pink tulle and
carried pink rosebuds. Mr. David
Bergeda, brother of Colonel Berge
da, presented the guests and Gov
ernor Thomas C. Rye and Hon. Jo
seph W. Byrns.iwho attended the
wedding ceremony in Omaha with
the other members of the staff, were
also in the receiving line.
The spacious rooms were beauti
fully decorated with baskets of roses
and chrysanthemums, gifts to Col
onel Bergeda and his bride, and sev
eral hundred guests called during
the eception hours.
Golden Wedding Reception.
A family dinner party vwas given
by Mr. and Mrs. George Barker, sr.,
at their hojne, Sunday, to celebrate
their golden wedding. Their, chil
dren and six grandsons were the

Messrs. and Mesdames Charles Mar
tin, George Barker,- jr.,vJoseph
Barker, Frank Barker, 'A. O.Yarker,
Joseph Barker, 2nd, George Barker,
3rd, and Francis, George, Charles

One of Nebraska's earliest pio

Davenport, la., in a wagon. Shortly
after the civil war, Mr. Barker went
to England, where his marriage to
Miss Annie Osborne took place. Mr.
and Mrs. Barker have spent their
entire wedded life in Omaha. All
the pioneers of the city and county
will be guests this evening at an in
formal reception at the Barker home
and it is expected that 100 friends
will call .to extend their congratula
tions. Miss Brewster Goes East.
Miss Clara Brewster left Friday
evening for Battle Creek, Mich.,
where she will remain for at least
two weeks. Miss Brewster has put
in two yeart' hard work financing
the Y. W.' C. A. summer camp and
managing it. She was too busy to
takea vacation and now 'feels the
need of a complete rest. Her plans
from that time on are uncertain, as
she may make a trip to California
and may possibly go to France in
Red Cross work. Miss Brewster has
filed an application, but it is being
held subject to. her feeling physically
fit for the task.

star role in the winter costume.

waistcoats may be made frtm the
many wool scarfs on the market
which sell for about $4 each. A scarf
of putty or chamoiscolored wool,

waistcoat for wear with this blue
suit, especially if fastened with imi

scarf would also be a striking acquis

the executive committee, said: "The
return of the civilian population to
their ruined homes is unspeakably
sad. Workers write home that one
feels a mingling of pleasure and pity
when the older children shout and
leap with joy, but it is pathetic be

have never known anything but the
thunder and terror of war, with a
frightened expression in their eyes
whisper, "Sh-hl They may hear us."

Chrysanthemum Queen of
the Autumn Season
Of the flowers adapted for- use in
the home, chrysanthemums meet
more requirements than any. Pro
duced in great variety of form and
color, they lend themselves to al
most any decorative plan which
may be devised. From the end of
August until Christmas they are
in season, bridging over a' period
when most choice flowers have
passed. With a little care, cut
blooms last in water a long time
often two weeks or more.
The giant blooms we see today
in the flower shops are the rtsult
of hybridization work extending
over more than a century, the base
parents being two wild species
common to China and Japan, having
kvery small flowers, in size less than
those of the common held daisy
which, by the way, is also a
chrysanthemum, bearing the Latin
name of Leucanthemum vulgare.
In recent years there has been
developed a spendid race of single
chysanthemums, whose varieties
produce beautiful rayed flowers with
golden centers, admirable for table,
basket and vase use. The race cov
ers a wide variety of forms, one,
two and three rows of petals, dou
bles, Anemone-formed, and pom
pon. The blooms range in color
through whites, yellows, pinks,
chestnuts and bronzes, and are pro
duced in well formed sprays of
Nhree to six or more flowers. The
plants are usually set out in the
open ground in May, potted in early
September and flowered under glass
protection. The cut flower sprays
are used to great advantage in low
bowls or dishes, the stems inserted
in blocks obtainable for the pur
pose; arranged in this way a nat
ural growing effect is produced
which is artistically pleasing. For
Thanksgiving stable centerpieces
such arrangements are very ap
propriate, and the effect is height
ened by the addition of sprays of

The Boy in Rags.
PEGGY felt a nervous tingle run
up and down her back as the
Gypsies crowded around. They
seemed grateful because of her res
cue of Toto, the baby, but there was
something about them that she
didtfr altogether trust. Behind their
smiles was a slyness that made her
doubt that she was seeing their real
selves. , ' . ,
"Come into my tent," said Tirzah,
the Gypsy queen. "There you shall
feel the GypsjS chatm."
Peggy held back. She was not a
bit anxious to explore the mysteries
that lay behind the bright colored
draperies. Her hesitancy became
all the stronger when she. suddenly
realized that she toas all alone
among the Gypsies. The fair visit
ors, who had been streaming in and
out of the camp all afternoon, were

as he looked down upon reggy.
"Ha what's this? A beautiful

The other Gypsies shrank back
as the older man shouted out tnese
questions. Evidently they were
afraid of him. Only the tall, fierce
Innliitiff man held his" place beside
Tirzah. He answered the older
".This girl has done us a service,
Viga," he said. 'jiVo harm shall come
to herl" - ;
"Who dares say to me what shall
or shall not be done?" demanded
"J dare say it," answered the
younger man, doubling up his fists
and facing Viga, who glared angrily
back at him.
--"And I say it with you, Ronald,"
spoke up Queen Tirzah. "She shall
be rewarded by feeling the Gypsy's
charm." , x
"The Gypsy's charm, ho, ho, hoi"
laughed Viga. "When she feels the
Gypsy's charm she will be ours for-

spoke up Ronald.
"Or perhaps as I say," sneered
Viga. "You grow overbold, young
Ronald. When we reach the open
road there must come a settlement
between us two."
Viga's words held a threat, which
Peggy could only vaguely under
stand a threat against her and
against Ronald, who, apparently,
was her friend.
As the two men glared at each
other, Tirzah drew her quickly into
the tent. .
It was dark there, brt when Peg
gy's eyes became accustomed to the
gloom she found herself in a luxu
rious, oriental den, with beautiful
hangings on the wall, a rug on the
floor, deeply cushioned couches in
viting repose, and a dimly burning
lamp hanging from above.,
- "Wait here I" said Tirzah, leading
Toto into a rear apartment, j

A slight noise on the other side of

breathing deeply. Then there came
a little moan. Peggy stood still,
afraid to stir. Again there came
the little moan.
Perhaps some one was in dis

Thinking this, Peggy crept to the
draperies and peeked through. On
