Spring hate are still of the youth
youthful. Some of them have not yet
been admitted to the wearer's kingdom,
and still others are only creations J be.
Perhaps then remarks upon the subject
may yet be allowed. The Brooklyn
Life has a very amusing and pointed
picture in its Easter number.
The central figure is that of a woman
walking, supposedly in Easter garb, her
hat trimmed with life-like, life-size
birds. On either Bide and above her on
the branches of trees that are lightly
outlined are birds singing, after the
style of elaborate musical creations, the
anthem, "Where Did You Get That
Hat?" "Where did you," sing two
little birds together; "get that bat,
where did," continues another; "did
you get," chants a third; "that hat,"
sings a fourth, while others take up the
refrain, "where did did you get that
did jou get that hat where where
where did you get that hat, where
dii? " and 60 on.
The theme of the picture is not as
forceable as it would have been a year
or two ago, for this season the etiquette,
but not the morals of millinery hrfs for
bidden aigrettes, wings and birds.
There are so many birds this year,' that
one cannot but wonder, if their carol of
joy is sot in gratitude for the good luck
of their southern sisters who because
their plumage is finer and gayer; 'have
been until this season the perpetual
prey of the millinery sportsman. It is
pitiful indeed, to think of all the wee
families of herons that have been left
motherless and hence have starved to
death, for it is only during the moult
ing season that upon the mother heron
appears the beautiful egret. "Oh, lit
tle bii ds, take warning, you may think
that humanity, so called, is growing
more humane, but pray be undeceived,"
and rather say, "Oh mons;eur Virot,
Madame Louise, if you please, do con
tinue to put Bilk and lace and fluffiness
upon your hats, for what you say is law.
We know that the pretty women and
the lovely girls have never dreamed of
bow much the gay birds they have
worn, wanted to live, in order to build
their houses, and sing their songs in
the air where freedom is supposed to
be. Nor have they considered that the
result of plucking that egret was the
breaking up of a happy home Oh
monsieur Virot, Oh madame Louise,
please do not tempt the women again.
Mrs. Angie F. Newman spoke re
cently at a public meeting in Craig,
Nebraska, for the benefit of the famine
sufferers in India. She lectured also at
Wayne and from there went to Fender,
where she sroke twice. The first lec
ture was on "The Land of tde Pyra
mids,'' and the second was "Experiences
in Honolulu." Mrs. Newman has al
ways been an interesting speaker. Each
year and each new voyage only add to
her broad experience, to ber liberal
conceptions irr thought and action and
interest as a lecturer.
Senator Thurston, Mrs. Thurston and
Mrs. Thurston's sister, Miss Purman
arrived in Omaha the first of the week.

The City Improvement Society met
on Thursday morning in the rooms of
the Union-Commercial club. Mrs.
Baker reported the organization, among
the children of the Capitol school, sec
ond grade, of a squad of juvenile inspec
tors. The children of Miss Soper's
Mfjor Glen Moaely.
Paper policeman Bruce Ogden.
Paper policeman Dorothy Baker.
All the children form a lookout com-
mittee. A special lookout committee
was elected consisting of hammersmith,
Edgar Knowles; wireman, Isaac Green
stone; broom brigade captain, Margaret
Mansfield; sidewalk inspector, Earl
Trenholm. On motion of Mrs. Ladd, a
committee of four was appointed to
draft a constitution for these squads,
Mrs. Welch, the vice president, pre
siding in the absence of Mrs. Tayh r,
appointed Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Blish, Mrs!
S. H. Atwood and Mrs. Hodgman.
This committee will mett at the home
of Mrs. Baker, the chairman, at 10 A.
M. on Monday, April 30th. The prep!
osition that the children act as irspej
tors and members has awakened Eome
opposition, one mother expressing the
fear that in picking up soiled papers
the children might catch some disease.
It is quite aside from the purposes of
the organization of the children into a
city care-taking association that they
shoald pick up anything actually re
pulsive in smell or to the sight. But
as the healthiest children' play out of
doors most or the time it is hoped to
take advantage of their young enthu
siasms to the neatness of the city."
Th9y may in time influence their par
ents who throw out tin cans, swill and
other refuce into the alleys.
