Uh well, the amusing inddentl

the wcakne of one man. at least.

That' how the church got the
substantial allocs which probably

F")R the first time in her life Gab

This discerning man and his pret

was rather bedecked for the occa

mired, accordingly. Particularly did
he admire the fetching coronet hat
of red which she wore.
Dinner ended, they were having!
their first dance together. He sniffed,
then sniffed again.
"What's burning? There's a fire
someplace. 1 smell smoke!" he ex
claimed. The wife, surprisingly calm, said
nothing and danced on.
"I tell you there's a fire," he re

clutch. "We must find out where it

pulling him back into the dance step.

"Isn't it a clever gown?'.'
"The lines are good on you."
These, are all pretty thread-bare
expressions from the one who-would

But here's the prize slogan of them
all. A young society maiden of Oma

The waver wavered and burned her
badly on her lily white forehead. Did
the offender apologize? She did not.
She took her victim right into her
confidence with the words "Oh, hun,

Samuels' Songs ,.
to Mrs. Kyhl
- .Of course everyone interested in
affairs musical has a certain degree
of pleasurable " anticipation i in the
coming of Madame Galli-Curci and
her husband-accompanist, ' Homer

who can think of the coming concert
of the famous singer as. a renewal of
personal , friendship other than Mrs.
Louis C Kyhl of this city, formerly
Helen Sadilek.'." ;
Among the interesting pictures of
famous musicians : which are in the
Kyhl home are several of the singer
and her husband. : Madame Galli
Curci has also sent to Mrs. Kyhl at
the. time of its publication each of
Mr. Samuels' compositions. Most
of his - songs are dedicated to his
wife, Amelita, and -the lovely Ame
Iita made certain that Mrs. Kyhl
should have a complete collection of
them. Of each one th'e singer- has
written some message of friendship.
In 1908, when :Mrs. . KyhlMeft
Omaha for Berlin, where she spent
two years studying piano," she made
the acquaintance of Mr. Samuels and
his mother, who were also enroute
to Berlin. Since' that time, she has

ily and Homer Samuels has, visited
in this city at the Sadilek home. '
