OMAHA travelers who have recently returned from New York havo
been onjoyinj; tht grand opera ficnson there. It Is not only the
opera Itself, which Is Riven by somo of the world's greatest sing
ers, but the musical atmosphere, ro to speak, the beautifully
sownc-J women, the Intellectual audiences, and last, but not least, the tlin
m parties, preceding tho opera, and the supper parties at the New York
afes following, the performances,'' said an enthusiastic opera devotee.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry D. Kstabrook, formerly of Omaha, who now re
side In New York, have a season box and entertain many friends from
The women of the audiences are wonderfully gowned. The silver
fox, which Is said to be one of the rarest and richest of furs, is used on the
gorgeous evening coat by the best gowned women. One pelt Is usually
worn, the center of the fur being under the chin and the ends of the collar
are thrown over the shoulders and bong down the back of the coat, Just
lce versa from tbo usual fur collar on the evening coat.
The gowns are dainty chiffons of brilliant shades, covered with
Iridescent beads. With these gownB are worn wonderful corsage bou
quets of perhaps one large Jeweled American Heauty rose, made In Paris
and costing In Itself a small fortune. They arc not so perishable as the
-eal flower are always ready and never harm the gown.
Among the Omahans who have been In Now York this year for the
operas arc Mrs. Herman KounUe, Mrs. .1. M. Metcalf, Mrs. Oorrltt Kort,
Miss i.ynn Curtis, Mrs. Jerome Mogec and Mrs. K. M. Fairfield.

Omaha has started on the right toad In

"Vou have a body of good, public

he said, "and I hope you will not allow
It to get Into politics. City planning Is
of too great movemont to bo made a plank

The speaker warned the club against
Indiscriminate location of factories and
recommended n special district for each
division of Industrial Omaha. A civic
center, he believes, Is not absolutely
necessary for this city.
"I am not sure that every city should
have a civic center," he declared. "Of
course, public buildings should have
proper settings and most city plnns to

buildings, although not always In the

TWO STAR ATTRACTIONS AT KILPATRICK'S
On Saturday, January 11th, 1913
Nearly a half a century ago on January 11th, we first entered the Dry Goods business. In retrospection we look back and we could say to the friends of
other days "It seems to me but yesterday since we were boys, merry, merry boys; since we were boys together." How true it is that "Years are
not long, nor lives the longest that survives." But a truce to moralizing and pliilisophizing; what we wish you to know is that we will to some ex
tent CELEBRATE THE EVENT WITH 2 STAR ATTRACTIONS, as well as several other stellar ittractions, all of which should make January 11th
of this year of grace, one to lie long remembered.
