TTTE OMAHA DAILY HEF,t SUNDAY, JULY lf 1003.
0 SOCIETY IS KEEPING COOL Omaha's Smart Folks Avoid Iiertion and Evade th Heat. DEATH OF DICK BERLIN A DISTINCT LOSS Hli Personality Will Be Keenly MUm iti the Peenle f Wkoa Ho Had Been Unlds lid rrlcad. k floei, II Ooes It. Naw York Trlbuna. I. She's rone away where cool wlnda blow, And where clear mountain streamlets flow. On hotel porch she bresthes the air. Oft wishing- that he might be there. And thinking that It's rather alow, She sighs because Joe couldn't go. Because In town he'a tolling so, While ahe'a away, II. She's gone awav. and darling Joe Ja found each night where footlights glow; lie cheers the charmers gsy and fair, Who sing and dance so debonnalre, And when he trice to drown his woe Where tinkling glasses overflow He goea it all the town must know She's gone away. Although the gadfly seems to have dona Ma worst among the fashionables, there are a till enough left In town to entertain each other, In an Informal way at least, and last week waa not ao dull as might hare been expected considering. And It waa not all out at the Country and Field clubs either, for, thanks to the fact that not a few out-of-town girls consider It worth while to summer In Omaha, there waa something going on nearly every day In their honor. For the most part these gatherings were held In the morning and some of them were elaborate enough, too. In the main, cards furnished the diver sion, though aome were kenslngtona and at others the popular guessing gam served to entertain. At the clubs things have been gay. In deedgay because the people have been there to chat and lunch and play golf and dance and do the many other things un usual, unexpected and otherwise, ttuvt oc cur to people to do when there la a crowd. I.adlen' day at the Country club haa fur nished a mid-week feature that Is most acceptable and on Wednesday afternoon the women of the Field club were asked over to the Country club to try the golf course ami have a cup of tea. While not an over whelming number accepted the Invitation pwhaps because the women of the Field club prefer tennis to golf, or the majority of them do, or for some other reason the afternoon waa a success none the less, even to that proverbially feminine Institution the cup of tea. A table d'hote luncheon was served at noon to about sixty women, Wednesday evening being guest night at the Field club, ther waa a crowd out that made the members appreciate the wisdom of tha board of directors In establishing limitations, even If by co doing they did net tha busybodles to talking. Tct, even the fashionables have their troubles. . And then there has been no end of fun among tha younger set. that la, (he set that la at home for the aummer, and while no one has been especially Invited or en tertained, there have been little Impromptu ailing parties, bowling parties, picnics and tha like that have been altogether enjoy able, ' and that Is what society wants chiefly nowadays. Willie there haa been a noticeable In clination toward athletics among women of late, Omaha girls have been slow to take fp that very practical fad that the women - of. the east are .most enthusiastic about swimming. Almost all the , college girls have come home with great tales of the swimming tank and the .queer .duds that tta devotees have adopted. To be sure they were not adopted from choice, that Is, not at first, but rather because the swimming teacher ruled that they had to be worn and after that the bathing suit was abandoned from choice. The accepted suit resembles mora than any thing else a little boy's overalls the waist being loose and tha sleeves short, the trousers coming to, about the knee and admitting of the free use of the limbs. During the past fortnight a number of society women have become quite enthused and several classes are being organised, under the direction of one of he girls just back from Sargent's. These classes are to meet at Courtland Beach early In the morning when nobody Ise - will be about. Poor "Uncle Dick!" For everybody called him "Uncle Dick." although his card al ways bore the Inscription "Mr. Richard S. Berlin," engraved In the newest lettering. He will be missed more, now that ha has gone, than would any other man who has figured In Omaha society perhaps because he bad been a society man longer than any of the others, but more probably be- . cause he was always the same Imperturb able, accommodating, polite, sociable com panion, despite ups and downs In other fields. "Uncle Dick," as long aa memory runa back, had been the column of amoke by day and the pillar of fire by night for tha society phalanx. Whenever a new visiting girl came to town "Uncle Dick" waa the first to be asked to help entertain her, and he responded with energetlo alacrity. Whenever a dinner waa to be filled out or a theater party made up 'tlncle Dick" waa the handy man, and van If the Invitation arrived as an eleventh , hour bid his sense of social ' duty would alwaya overcome all points of personal sensitiveness. "I know I'm only here be cause they couldn't get anyone else," he would say in his joking way, when he knew, and his hoata knew, that without Mm the company would have been stale ' and flat. "Uncle Dick" never married the reason why people will only guess but he took special Interest in helping along the lova affairs of his friends and his help in smoothing over rough places will be re inembered by many members ot tha mar ried set. He took particular pride In tha wedding of Mr. "Jack" Cudahy and Mlsa Edna Cowln. regarding that alliance as Ms chet d'ouvre of match making. Wonder, too, what will become of that wonderful "toast book" complied by him with such painstaking perseverance, which has done service on so many, many, occasions for more wlUeaa performers on the after dinner speech making program. "Uncle Dick' surely will be missed. Tha dinner list at tha Country club Satur day evening Included Mr. C. B. Keller, who entertained eight guests; Mr. and Mra. W 11. McCord, fourteen; Mrs. George K.

He said that the record was dated June 19. but that It was prepared before that time and that members of the High school cadet battalion had been al lowed their dally average In this study for the days they were attending the en campment, with the understanding that the marking was subject to change in case their record at camp was not satisfactory. Principal Waterhouse Identified the rules and regulations of the school board and the regulations governing the cadet bat talion. He said that he had little personal knowledge of the system followed In Axing the credits of pupils In the battalion, as It was part of the duty of the commandant to regulate the markings and the final re sult waa sent to him, to become part of the permanent records. The copy of the regulations was Introduced to show the penalties provided for derelection of duty and a system of extra markings for extra work. In which Is Included attendance at encampments. In the afternoon there were introduced records showing that no reduction had been made in the unit work of any study but trigonometry, but that a reduction to 70 per cent had been made In the average, while the other, studies were unchanged from the original report. The principal said that this change was not made for the reason that after figuring the deductions the pupil would have passed In all other branches, and the change would have been useless. It was shown that one pupil had been given a diploma who had not made the required grades and ths attorney for Sutphen Insisted that If this were dons In one case It should be done In all.

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY Nt a little Importance may be at tached to the statement ot Mrs. Emma Fox, second vice president of the General Federation of Women's clubs, made In her eddrerw to the gathering given In her honor Monday evening in the rooms ot the Ctnaha Woman's club. In speaking of the work of the General Federation Mrs. Fox said that in her opinion ths Mormon question was the next great mat ter for the federation to take up and It should bo the subject ot chief consider ation by the St. Louis biennial. She spoke of the extension of Mormonlsm and ths methods by which It Is being accomplished. of the election of Reed Smoot to ths United States senate and of the fact that, the- Mormon question had already crept Into the General Federation inasmuch as one Mormon club already holds membership In that body. Mrs. Brtgham Roberta was elected delegate from this club to the Los Angeles biennial, but she, at a late date, decided not to attend, presumably because of the question raised by local and other newspapers, as to whether she would be allowed to be seated if she went. This question, Mrs. Fox said, has never been discussed in the general board, but she thought it should receive serious consider ation at the St. Louis meeting next year. Mora than ordinary Importance Is at tached to this statement as coming from Mra. Fox because of her close touch with ths General Federation board and the wall known fact that she Is among Its' most valued, experienced and conservative mem bers. Another matter upon which Mrs. Fox touched that Is of especial local Interest Is of limiting the time of debate. She said that a knowledge of parliamentary rule is as essential to a member of an organisation as the knowledge of the rules of any game In which they would suc cessfully participate, and she advised that all debate be limited to three minutes if not two, as she considered that ample time for any ope person to present her argument. She advised that the business hour be shortened by limiting debate. There has been considerable complaint. In the local club during the last two or three years that tho business hour Is too long and not enough time Is sllowed for pro grams, and this advice from tne recog nized parliamentarian of the General Fed eration will doubtless have much weight In effecting a remedy of this matter. Tho Federal Woman's Equality associa tion, which enrolls among Its membership the foremost women thinkers and workers of the country, and that- has recently gained several radical concessions to women through its Intelligent action, has deter mined upon another and even more radical step that promises, no matter wMch way it may result, to mark an epoch In the ad vancement of the cause of women. The fallowing protest and . pledge has been Issued by ths association with the tequest that women circulate and sign It:' We, as paying women of , hereby agree to do what we can, by protest and argument, to emphasize the fact that "tax ation without representation is tyranny" as much for American women as It waa for the American co:onlea In 1776. And we also pledge ourselves that when 10,000 or more women In the United States ahall have been similarly enrolled we will simultaneously take action, either by refusal to pay taxes or by united suit to reoover taxes or by whatever method may seem best In accord ance with official advice, of the Federal Woman's Equality association, to the end that public attention may be thoroughly and effectively called to the Injustice and Injury done to women by violating the fundamental principles of our republic In taxing them without giving them any voice In saying how their money shall be ap plied. Blanks for signatures are to be supplied later to those who wish them, but in the meantime women wishing to circulate and sign the protest and petition will be al lowed to copy It and use It heading, provided care la taken to give the post offloe address, town, county and state of every signer. The copy and circulation of the protest and petition Is especially ad vised so that tho names can be classified at headquarters. by November 1 and copies furnished to all such organizations aa cars to use them in Influencing state legislation this winter. Mra. Demies T. 8. Denlson, president ot the Goners 1 Federation of Women's Clubs, has accepted the Invitation of the Omaha Woman's club to address the second meet ing ot the fall, October 12.

C CHETNET, OMAHA, SW4T LIBRARIAN GETS NEW IDEAS Attends Convention of National Library Association at Niagara Falls, EXPECTS TO IMPROVE SERVICE HERE Miss Tobttt1 Telia ot Pointers Gathered at the Convention and at Several Eastern Cities She Visited While Away. Miss Edith Tobltt. librarian, and Miss Bertha Baumer of the public library staff returned Wednesday morning after spend ing three weeks In the east, one of these at Niagara Falls attending ths session of the American Library association and tbe following two In Now Tork and elsewhere Inspecting libraries. "We feel that we have been well repaid for the trip," said Miss Tobltt, "and that we will be able to considerable Improve tho service through ' suggestions and Ideas which wo have heard and which were brought to our attention at the meeting of the association. "Probably the most Important discussion was In regard to the relation of tho libraries and the book trade. We now pay 20 per cent more for certain books than we did two years ago and this naturally makes a great difference to the libraries. Prominent librarians and well known pub lishers took part in this discussion. A com mittee was appointed and a fund estab lished for sending to all libraries notifi cations of all publishers' changes In price. The libraries, comparatively, are such small purchasers of books that they have little Influence with the publishing houses. Fiction la Public Libraries. "In the discussion of fiction In publlo libraries J. C. Dana of Newark took a leading part. It la his idea that we should get more copies of each popular work and acquire a less variety of authors. He also Is a great advocate of what la called the duplicate system, by which separata books are carried and rented at 2 or i cents a week and in this way pay for their cost. These books would be largely works which It would not be worth while placing in the permanent collection. "I have been trying to get Mr. Dana to attend the Nebraska State association's meeting In Fremont, October 7, and ho has almost promised. I think his comigg will do us a great deal of good, aa he Is one of the most prominent librarians In the country. 'While we have always taken great pains In the fumigation of our books I shall be able to greatly Improve our apparatus. Andrew F. Currier brought before one of the meetings snd explained to the librar ians the system which he has perfected for sterilizing books. This Is done by plac ing them open say 500 volumes at a time In tight case and sterilising them with a vspor consisting largely of formaldehyde. This can be done nightly, a new set of books going In to replace the disinfected ones, which can go back to circulation. Gifts and Beqaests. "J. L. Harrison, chairman of tho commit tee of gifts and bequests, read a report covering the gifts received during the year ended May 31, 1903. Five hundred and twelve gifts are recorded, representing in all W.247 volumes and $10,531,407.81. Of this amount 1710,800 was given for general endowment funds, fftf.TOO for buildings sites, $0,704,000 for buildings from Andrew Carnegie, $l,2&0.W.tt for buildings from other doners, SitH.MO for the establishment ot book funds, $101,677 for the purchase of books and $1,3(3,871.60 for purposes the objects of which ware not stated. Thn Nebraska bequests were as follows: Our own library received a herbarium and caaes, given by William Cleburne and containing I.2U0 species-collected mainly In Nebraska and sutroundlng states. Falls City public library received $10,000 for building and books from Lydla B. Woods. Hastings received 115,000 from Andrew Carnegie for a building. Kearney received annomously 800 volumes. Helen Gould sent $1,000 to the North Platte Toung Men's Christian association reading rooms. Plattsmouth was benefited by $1,801 from various cltisens and Seward received 400 books. Permanent Headanarters. "There was a great deal of discussion In regard to establishing a headquarters far the association, a thing very much needed. A million dollars will be needed to furnish a site and equip a building such ss Is desired. 1. 1 Wyer, president of our state WBsW 3!l and the Fishineand Hunt- IT 1 Tm.m -i fta!!,. v lauuam. v.. j - muinMwin uuc.i blayton, winaom, tiingnam other resorts oi tne norm.

"Tho very best library we found on our trip was the Newark Free library which Is In charge of Mr. Dana. They have a de partment for the circulation of plcturfs. and largo rooms, for the exhibition of fine paintings borrowed from the private collections of tho city. They also' have their own bindery and I have brought hnmn several samples of their work to be copied here. Ths Torkville branch of tho New Tork City library was the model small library to come to our notice. It Is the first of the' branches authorized by Mr. Carnegie to be completed. Small cities, having, say. $40,Ono or $30,000 to spend for building and books, should apply to the Torkville library for plans and Ideas. I consider It a model." CARDS! CARDS!! CARDS!!!
