Llnons were never more In demand and
certainly never were so varied In weave

NOT AN ENVIABLE POSITION
American Glrla PHr the Princess Who
la Prospective Unreal of
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
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:
