JOHN S. REED.
The subject of this sketch -and illustration la an Illlnolsan by birth and
-was reared on a farm near the village of Old Berlin in Sangamon
county, Illinois. He attended the Tillage school, a distance of a mile and
a half, and at the age of nineteen entered Elliott's Business College at
Burlington, Iowa. After securing his diploma he was chosen instructor
In that school, and after serving four years at the head of the theory,
actual business and English departments, Mr. Reed returned to the old
homestead in Illinois and engaged lin the cattle business. Later he
turned his lace towards the setting sun determined to try his fortune in
the west. He left his home state with a view to locating on a western
ranch, landing in Beatrice, Nebraska. February 12, 1884. A month later he
came to Lincoln, having been offered a position as book-keeper and cash
ier In a large wholesale clothing and grocery house, serving four years In
this capacity. In 1888, Mr. Reed opened a real estate office In a modest
way, platted an addition and devoted his time to disposing of it and
taking care of what business in the realty line which naturally came to
him because of a large acquaintance in the city and county. Mr. Reed
has sold more real estate than any one man in the city of Lincoln, which
Is remarkable, owing to the fact that he did not open an office until after
the active real estate trade, which characterized the history of this city
between 1880 and 18S7, had spent itself. Mr. Reed bears the distinction of
having conducted several of the largest single real estate transactions
ever made in Lincoln, and his name has been Identified with nearly every
transfer of any magnitude during the past fourteen years.

NEW TORK, March 28. When Lent
is over and the velvets and furs laid
aside. New Yorkers will be treated to
such an elaborate array of spring
modes, flowers and gay colors as has
seldom If ever before been seen within
the gates of this modish metropolis.
While Lent is popularly regarded as a
period of rest and worship, it is In
reality, with the majority of society
women, the time tor studying spring
styles and arranging for spring ward
robes. If there is any worship among
the' modlshes at this time, the fash
ionable modiste is the deity.
Among the many new spring and
summer models nothing Is more fetch
ing than the white and cream-colored
tailor suits. That white is to be the
rajjfe this season is 'evidenced by re
ports from Paris and the Riveria. Mrs.
John Jacob Astor and many of the
New York fashionables are especially
devoted to white. A white silk voile
is the chef d'aeuvre of the wardrobe
of a irnmin who made a lot of money
la copper some months ago, and who
has recently "come out" in the matter
eC clothes. The skirt la perfection as
to fit, and shows some large emplace
ments of lace on the narrow front
panel. The lace, is a very heavy filet
ground with designs of Irish crochet
appllqued over Its surface. These com
bination lace effects are a feature of
the summer. The coat is a Mandarin,
beautifully tailored and lined with
white satin. There are three squares
of the lace down each slue of the front,
and the wide turned-away cuff Is en
tirely of lace. The inside of the coat,
which shows when the revers are
turned back, has some flower designs
worked out In hand-embroidery on the
filet ground work. This must have
been a task most difficult of accom
' plishment, but the result warrants the
effort, for It is exquisite. A white lace
waist, garnished with, clusters and
trailing tiny; roses, worked out in nar
row silk, is worn beneath the coat.
This Mandarin coat; with slight vari
ations, is among -the models which
have just arrived from the other side.
A pongee silk is made with a fly front
and the little high revers, and has
tight-fitting sleeves, even to the wrist.
It hangs loose in the back and front
to about five or six inches below the
waist, and looks quite natty and nice.
It is lined throughout with deep cream
satin, and has narrow taffeta bands of
the same color, as the pongee stitched
about wrist, bottom and revers. The
skirt to this is very handsomely trim
med with taffeta stitching, terminat
ing in .squares about the lower .part,
and Is very long. In fact, all the skirts
are iong, and no woman can expect to
be in fashion or at all smart in ap
pearance, unless she concedes to this
Another material used in these stun
ning tailored suits is a sort or rather
many sorts of coarse linen crash.
This may not be the trade name for
It, but I am sure my meaning wiir be
clear. It does not look costly nor does
the name suggest extravagance, yet
even an unlined coat with a coarse
Cluny lace collar cost $80. The top
part of this model is cut much like a
Gibson waist, with the broad shoulder
effect, and It Is slightly bloused at the
15th and O Streets,

belt line In front. Below the belt
the coat is plain, with a slight ripple
in the back and is not very long. The
Cluny collar extends well down to the
waist line In 'front. Scarcely any of
these spring coats close at the throat.
The new separate skirts of etamine
and voile are, as usual, cut close to
the knees and many have the habit
back, modified In some instances.
Brilliant taffeta bands, both unstitched
and stitched, are the favored trimming,
but these are applied differently from
last season. A pretty skirt has bands of
exactly the same width and distance
apart from the top to the bottom of
the skirt, which is, in this case, cat
on the lines of a serpentine. The cords
and tassels I mentioned a few weeks
ago as an innovation in trimmings are
among the most effective features of
the new costumes.
The new FTench scarfs, with their
chaplets and often hand-painted flow
ers, will probably be adopted by the
select in preference to the neck ruff
and boas of last year. These little
bunches of ribbons with knotted ends
which finish the scarfs are very chic,
and were shown upon any number of
the imported costumes exhibited last
week. The uses to which these scarfs
of guipure and various laces are put are
legion. They fasten coats at the front,
trim hats, grace Indoor gowns and
serve -in lieu of the once inevitable
boa. Lady Modish in Town Topics.
