I FAMOUS MILLINEY OPING.
Paris Hats and Bonnets.
The Famous is crowded with shop-
pers, examining and selecting spring
hats. The number of chic hats is un-
usually large and varied. The new
shades called pastelle. the beautiful,
fresh and frosty pinks, blues, lavenders
and old rose, in distinguished combina
tions are to be fouod at The Famous.
The new hats are trimmed in berries,
in rose pips roses gone to seed and
turned old rose and shades of yellow
and brewn, clusters of cherries, cur
rants, elderberries and faint pink win
tergreen berries, decorate the dainty
epring hats. The pastelle shades reap
pear in moussehne, foliage and m alines.
A large case full ot graceful and piquant
black hats has a crowd before it. Vio
lets are used in great profusion in com
bination with chi.Ton and the popular
fancy straws of which there is rich pro
fusion at The Famous. Deep rosettes
of pleated chiffon with the stamens and
pistils of natural (lowers are in rich pro
fusion and will be selected by the know
ing ones who know what to wear. Oats
wheat and grasses are the, graceful
characteristic of many of the bonnets
and the show cases are glittering with
rhinestone and jet ornaments. The
prices, Mr. Ackerman says, are very low.

selected to carve the statue from the
stone now lying on the capitol grounds.
Mr. Neligh exhibited many ceramic
specimens of foreign make and many
beautiful pictures. Mrs. Fitzgerald
was elected as a delegate of the nominat
ing committer. The next meeting will
be held in two weeks, when Mrs. Brock
will talk on "Decoration in Pottery."
The Piattsmouth woman's club has
been pleasantly entertained recently
by two very interesting lectures in the
history course, the first by Lieutenant
Rawle, on "Massachusetts;" the second
by Superintendent McIIugh on "Wash
ington, Jefferson and Hamilton.'' Both
men are entertaining speakers. The
departments of literature, current
events and parliamentary law have all
been holding interesting meetings and
the average attendance has been very
good, notwithstanding much unpleas
ant weather. The ladies have interested
themselves somewhat in the anti-cigarette
crusade, the boys of the junior his
tory class ranging themselves as auxil
iaries, and it is hoped something will
soon be done to check the evil that has
assumed alarming prportions among the
small boys. Unscrupulous dealers seem
to have no compunctions ot conscience
or fear of the law, and it is no unusual
sight to see little children of seven or
eight years puffing away at these abom
inable things. This habit is a menace
to the good mortis of the community,
and it is hoped that public sentiment
"may do something by way of correction.
Several of our club members have an
nounced their intention of attending the
biennial at Milwaukee, the club going
on record by voting last Friday night
as opposed to reorganization. No club,
however small, wishes to be entirely
ignored, if it belongs to the federation
and pa s its dues. Our year is drawing
neai its close, and we all feel that it has
been a profitable one in many ways,
owing to the indefatigable work of the
president, Mrs. Fellows, and the hearty
co-operation of the leaders of depart
ments. The Amateur Musical club of York
met with the Misses Conaway Monday
afternoon, March 5th. A delightful
program was rendered, and during the
afternoon Clare Yaughan Wales, who
wa3 a guest of the club, read for the
ladies. Following is the program:
