Some of the candidates were out getting the voters to tiie polls but no effort wa*i made to bring out the full vote.

Although the caucuses were called too late for the candidates' names to be printed on the ballots, the voters were given a cue as to whose names to fill in.

The date of the cliautauqua will be July 48th to 25th. inclusive, a seven days' session. 1 The city election held Monday re sulted in the present officers being re elected with the exception of Dr. Hal C. Simpson, who withdrew from the citizens caucus and whose place will be taken on the council by Mr. Ben Pautsch. It had beer supposed that the supporters of the candidates whose names were placed on the ballot by petition would make a great showing at the election, but it is evident that, the voters did not favor putting new men into the city offices when they had so much important work to carry out. The program submitted hids fair to be the strongest ever given by the Redpath-Vawter people. They are especially anxious that it should be their best as it is their tenth anniver sary program.

STYLE REVIEW MOST PLEASING Geo. Menagh & Co. Gain New Laurels in Holding Style Review Mon day and Tuesday Evenings PLEASING PROGRAM RENDERED David Menagh, Who His Charge the "House of Menagh" at Oma Jia, Makos Introductory. Sincere and enthusiastic are tiie ex clamation on every hand when men tion is made of the style review staged by the George Menagh company de partment store of Denison on Monday and Tuesday evenings of this week at the Germania opera house. Never be fore in this city has such a beautiful display of charming suits, practical gowns and dainty frocks been viewed in so delightful a manner. A fashion review is a new method of presenting tiie latest in women's wearing apparel and is used by the large department stores and exclusive shops in the big ger cities to present to the buying public the season's fashions. Only a few weeks ago tiie Menaghs presented a fashion shew at the Brandeis theater in Omaha and this was attended by over three thousand women during the two afternoons it was put on. It was such a great success and created such favorable comment that the Menaghs said what was good Enough for Omaha was none too good for Denison and so the show was put on here. The fashion review was an enter tairtment in itself, the program con sisting of selections by the J. V. Bar borka orchestra and several beautiful solos by Lena Ellsworth Dale, of Oma ha, accompanied by Mrs. Mae Lovely Goss, of this city. The selections ren dered by the solist were in. keeping with the occasion, conveying to the audience in a charming manner the pwcct. delights of the spring time and furnishing a pleasing prelude to the entrance of the girlish models' who dis played the gowns. .Mr. David Menagh, who is in charge of the House of Menagh in Omaha, in presenting the seven models, briefly told the purpose nf the fashion review. He stated that the gowns, suits and frocks are first designed by French artists, and dress makers make them up in a number of different styles. but that they do not hdfforne the fashion until worn by the ladies in the communities in which they are sold. He impressed upon the minds of those present that it is the ladies of Denison who make the fash ions in Denison, and who govern the styles carried-in stock by the several stores who handle ready to wear gar ments. He thanked the people of Den $9.85 m&Mi awfrirttliirrtaa ison lor having made it possible for the George Menagh company to put on a fashion review, stating that the ladies of Denison and surrounding ter ritory had purchased a class of gar ments which were so fashionable that when the store was opened in Omaha the same lines were handled and they proved popular in that city. Seven young ladies of Omaha, who have had experience in the correct and pleasing manner of wearing and pre senting the styles, were employed George Menagh and company to come to Denison in order that the display migh be most effective. Each model tripped onto the sfage to tiie soft strains of tiie orchestra and as the many exquisite details of the garments were suggested by Mr. David Menagh, the garments were displayed to the best possible advantage. The garments exhibited the utmost taste in their se lection, combining style without ex travagance, and were good looking without being extreme. All of the garments were taken from the ready to-wear department of their store. Tiie shoes were matched from the shoe department and the hats worn were se lected from their choiie millinery de partment. From time to time the mod1 els passed through the audience to per mit the closer inspection of the mate rials and trimmings and deep interest and enthusiasm was found on every hand in the viewing of the styles. The prices of tiie garments shown were not exorbitant and in nearly every in stance were within the reach of all. Some of the higher priced garments selling as high as seventy-five dollars were exact reproductions from famous designers such as Worth, Armand, Jenny, Brandt, Caillot, Lambin, etc. The originals from which these repro ductions were made sell for as high as five hundred dollars a garment, while they are reproduced in this country, using the same materials and measure ments in carrying out every detail for a much less amount. Several Wooltex styles were shown and these caused much favorable comment. The sport ing outfits were particularly attract ive and the exclamation of the speak er, "Isn't it exquisite?" but voiced the question in the minds of the audience when the party gowns and afternoon frocks were presented. of The stage setting was most attract ive and carried out the suggestion of spring. A Buick roadster and a seven passenger touring car, loaned by the J. B. Romans Company, the local deal ers. were used on the stage, the first •time that automobiles have appeared in the opera house in Denison. The evening program ended when the pret ty models drove onto the stage in the touring- car. laden with huge bouquets of pink and white carnations and. passing down through the aisles, they distributed them among the ladies present.

No. 13 BASE -BALL FANS HOLD MEETING Meeting of Baseball Enthusiasts Last VVeek Well Attended and An Organization Effected LEON POWERS IS PRESIDENT Matter of Sunday Games Discussed, but Nothing Definite Arranged Along This Liita, However A number of base ball enthusiast** held a meeting at the court house one evening last week for the purpose of discussing the feasibility of organizing a base ball team this year. The meet ing was well attended and an organi zation perfected. There is considerable material avail able this year for a winning ball team, but the players are not anxious to play .games unless they are support ed by the people- of Denison. Last year Denison had no ball teaqi as the team the year previous had to be dis banded on account of the poor atten dance at the games, there not being enough paid admissions to meet the expenses. The boys expressed them selves willing to go ahead and organ ize a team if they were assured the support of the people of the commun ity. The following were elected officers of the association: Leon Powers, liresid&nt, Spencer Heiden, secretary,' W. A. Cramer, treasurer, James Mill, manager, James Mill, A. E. Lyman, Otto Voa gerau and P. J. Eggers. directors. Some of those present brought up the matter of playing ball on Sunday: but as yet the organization has not de cided whether or not to venture this. There is strong opposition to Sunday ball in Denison and matfy believe that if tiie club undertakes to play ball on that day, they will not receive the support for their week day games*. In order to insure good attendance at the week day games, some business men have suggested that the stores and places of business close in the afternoon once a week to permit ev eryone to attend the games. We be lieve that if this plan can be worked out there will be no question but what the team would not only pay expenses, but make money besides. Mrs. Adolph Eckert underwent' a" serious operation at the Denison hos pital last week. Her case was so seri ous that she was on the operating table for two hours before the sur geons completed the work. We are glad to report that she is doing nicely and everything points to a speedy re covery.
