So successful was the Mardi

circle of King's Daughters yesterday
afternoon at the home of Miss Blanche
Moeenfelder, 808 Twentieth street, that
the members of the circle have con
cluded to make the entertainment :
yearly affair, enlarging upon the affaii
as given yesterday.
The house was elaborately decorated
in the Mardi Gras colors, green, gold
and purple, and with pennants, ban

mas the crowning of the festival queen.
The young lady members of the circle
pome time ago sent to Mrs. Taft a list
of the names of the members, using
only the first name. Mrs. Taft from
this list chose the name of the girl to
be queen. At the appointed time Miss
Gertrude Don, leader of the circle,
opened the letter from Mrs. Taft and
enclosed was a card bearing the White
house monogram and the word "Elsa,"
and wishes for the success of the en
tertainment. Miss Elsa Simon was
therefore crowned queen of the festi
val by Miss Don. who led her to a
raised throne, placed on her head a
golden crown and in her hand a golden
sceptre, her attendants being little
Frances Medill and Dorothy Kenwor
thy, and ehe was duly proclaimed
queen. Previous to this ceremony the
guests were asked to guess the name
that would be chosen, and Miss Eliza- J
beth Stewart of Davenport was given J
the prize, which was a brass inkstand
with a raised head of Rex on it. and
was one of the Rex souvenirs from the
1911 New Orleans Mardi Gras. which
was presented to the circle by friends.
APPEAR IS COSTIME.
The young ladies appeared in cos
tumes representing many nations and
came enmasque. the whole scene mak
ing a very realistic Mardi Gras. There
been declared dependent by Judge R 1
W. Olmsted in the county court. In
the petition it is set forth that the '
children have not been receiving the
proper parental care, inasmuch as j

the opinion of the petitioner, Is not a '
fit person to take care of them I

the next in point of years, is to be
cared for by relatives in Moline. The
two boys, John and Earl, the latter 10
years old, have been placed In the cus
tody of Rev. S. G. Hagglund. who is

Thousands of woran of the three cities are wearing these superiot corsets, but we want other thou
sands to know about them. We said in our advertisements that for the entire week we would sell that
splendid new lon?FSt $1.50 Regis model for Just an even dollar; that there would be two of the prime
favorite $3.50 Regis models for $2.39
Two very superior $2.50 models for $1.75 and $1.39 and one of the ?ery best $2.00 Regis models we have
ever shown for just SI. 50
We thought we had supplied enough of every size of every style to last the week out. but these fine days
have brought such an outpouring of corset buyers that we are now asking the question: Will they last?
We have Regis corsets every price from $1.00 to $12.00.
We like to give ' fittings on all Regis corsets we sell, but during the rush this week we cannot prom
ise sure, unless you make engagements in advance. This Regis Week bids fair to make corset history in

Last Three Days of the McCabe Furniture
and Carpet Sale.
So many people have been disappointed in past years by
coming too late, that it seems scarcely necessary to say that
this BETWEEN-SEASON FURNITURE AND CARPET
SALE will come to a positive close Saturday niht. There is
not an unworthy piece of furniture on the big third floor not
a piece that we would be ashamed to show in our regular
stocks during the height of the selling season. That should
emphasize the opportunities of the last days of the sale. It
also accounts for the tremendous selling that we have been do
ing. Urging is unnecessary to bring shrewd housekeepers
when the savngs run from 12' to 50 per cent.
The pffair was given for the hencfit ! ball in the gymnasium between two
