The called meeting of the Omaha Woman's club, which was considered for next Tuesday, will probably not be called after all. Its object was to consider a proposition for the club' purchase of the J. J. Monell residence at Twentieth and Podge streets, for a club house. A majority of the executive committee feela. however, that the purchase of a club house la too important to be considered at this season, when the club Is adjourned for the summer. The executive committee will meet again within a few days and will decide regarding the called meeting. The educational committee of the Toung Women's Christian association will give a vacation number this evening In the audience room of the new building. Mrs. Garloch of the committee will give a talk on a two weeks' vacation trip In Colorado. She wJII give pricta and general expenses attending a two weeks' trip and a stere opticon will be used In Illustration of the talk on some of the resorts and other places of Interest. The association's work is about closed for the summer. Several of th secretaries will attend the summer con ference at Lake Geneva and a number of the member are planning to attend also. A meeting has bn called of local execu tive committees of arrangements for the National Women'a Christian Temperance union copvention. to be held Tuesday even !ng at the young Men's Christian associ ation. Mrs. Frances P. Heald, president of the state organization, will be In the city Monday for conference with the local com mittee.

Mr. Covell is one of the most successful organizer of the tat. The executive committee of the Omaha Woman' club ha decided that, for the coming year at least.

In no other material have the dyers achieved greater trlumpha than in this one, and in the workrooms one sees linen frocks and aulta tn all the colors of the season's card. Certain wood tones medium shades, half gray, half brown, with a dash of green are considered espe cially chic In linen, and the ash grays are kin to these. All the wistaria and queer fruity lavender and purple, the off tones in rose, the odd blue, the coppery brown and gold and mustard and khaki yellows, the almond and pistache and absinthe greens in ' fact, as haa been said, all the season's naw color are displayed In the linens. The white and string linens, too, have a great vogue, and some very elaborate coats are made up primarily for wear with white linen frocks, but may be worn too over any sheer lingerie frock. These coats arc of net more or less elaborately trimmed In aoutache braiding and linen bands or motifs, and some of them are exceedingly Intricate in design, while others are com paratively simple A coat of this kind ! effective, however, only when really good In design and work. In a cheap edition It 1 a hopelessly coarse and tawdry thing. Very heavy laces on the Cluny and Rus sian orders trim ome of the linen frocks, and broad banda of such lace were used to advantage upon the model skteched here, although this coat and skirt costume on account of It sharply defined trimming lines called for a tall and slender wearer. Blouses of sheer striped batiste in white and the color of the linen are so much liked a an accompaniment to the tailored coat and skirt costume of linen that it Is almost Impossible to fill their order. A white blouse embroidered In color may be made to take the place, but cons more than the other and lacks the smart sim plicity of the simply tailored blouse in the soft striped batiste.

Princess Beatrice of Paxe-Coburg, who la more English than German, being a daugh ter of the former duke of Edinburgh and niece of King Edward, Is hardly to be con gratulated on the prospect of wearing a crown as queen of Portugal. By all ac counts her engagement with King Manuel has been arranged. That does not mean that romance has brought the young couple together, but that the exigencies of royalty and International politics have been served. The princess Is a small, frail, pretty girl, who seem 111 fitted to fa.-e the storms of Portugal' blood-stained throne. She ha led a simple life in England and Germany, and from that she will be transplanted Into a court where even the queen herself must be guarded from the bullets of assassins. Then tn Manuel th princess gets for a husband a fat and lazy youth, whose brain Is dull and sluggish, and ho "rules" bo cause he obeys orders without asking the why of wherefore. There can be few American girls to envy prtneeas Beatrice her future. VETERANS TELL CHILDREN OF DAYS OFTHE GREAT WAR Custom Generally Observed In City, Spanish War Men Taking; Part - for First Time. The annual custom of veterans address ing the public schools on the Friday pre ceding Memorial day was generally ob served In Omaha. This year, for about the first time, veterans of the Hpanish Amerlcan war united with the members of the Grand Army of the Republic In making the addresses. The school rooms were prettily decorated with the national colors, flowers and por traits of the generals and notables of the war days. In practically all special patriotic exercises were carried out by the pupils, Including music and recitations, and choruf.es of patriotic war songs. Lincoln's Gettysburg address was re cited In many of the schools In unison, while In others the recitation was given by some specially talented pupil. The addresses of the veterans were largely of a narrative character. Including their own experiences In field, camp, march and battle, while not a few told of the horrors of the Ander.onvllle, Llbby, Salis bury and other prison puns, where they were prisoners of war. The veterans were given bouquets. Those addressing the pub lic and parochial schools were: High Colonel William A. Conover. Bancroft N. Lundaren. Beals H. W. Gilbert. Cass Colonel H. 8.
