THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MARCH 25. 1917.
9 B Spring still is held In winter's grasp But soon her bonds She'll break And tripping down The hillside green Her fresh, lithe way She'll take Across the plains She'll swijtly fling Her blossoms which She's sure to bring She'll loose the brook's Soft gurgling note A song will burst forth From her throat A PERSONALLY conducted" tour through a section of Orchard fc Wilhelm's great Furnltur House that I had not previously via Itad revealed such wonders to ma that I feel It worthy of mention In theaa columm, for I want you, too, dear readeri, to aik the privilege of seeing; jtaat what my eyes beheld. Three din In room aultea, created by a Mat ter Furniture Maker, and designed for handsome, spacious homee copies of authentto period piece eo aecura In quality and perfection of orafta manahlp that they ahould be oonald ered apart from the regular commer el allied furniture. The on that par ticularly pleated me was an Adam Period mahogany suite with ebony In lay, oonelatlng of a 10 -Inch dlntnr table, serving table, aldeboard and eight ehalra (fix aide chain and two arm chain), Thla claaalo suite was Intended originally to tell at 12,000, but on aceount of It being alow In el ling la to be offered at $676.00. Such a sacrlftcs aeema to ma almoat a dese cration! There la another Adam aulte la fluted deelgn, with garlanda and oval medallion carvings, ao typical to us of that period, and which In tta stately proportion would lend dignity to a large, beautiful home. Besides these, there la another aulte of Shera ton, with satin-wood Inlay, that will also be offered on the sacrificial altar. Shades of Robert Adam and Thomas Sheraton, arlsel e e e My richest friend, who has lived years In Parle, many times remarked plaintively, "Why do you and all my good friends Insist on sets of d tehee 7" And, ai I was moat particularly fond of my complete aet of thin, daintily decorated French china, I never quite caught her orltlclem. Aht but now X know! Last week I happened upon the moment when a shipment of won derful china was being marked and arranged. "Thla," explained the pre slder of the collection, "la a Service plate for an Adam period room. No tice the urn the oval rosette the flowing Greek line the color the glass!" I commenced to catch the enthusiasm and queried, "What Is this ' for?" "A blue-gray dining room," quoth the prealder. "It was a trifle oold, so this real turquoise plate was needed." And I find that nowa days they lay out their tablet In chromatic scales. DID you notice with what a de gree of comfort you spent the entire evening at the "Black atone" the other night T I wondered a little myself at the splendid venti lation and pure, warm air. "It's the new Vapor System installed by The Illinois Engineering Co., where only part of the radiator needs to be heated at one time," I wat told. And did you know this same system la Installed at St. Cecilia's Cathedral, aa well as nu merous apartment houses, hotels and homes? It's wonderful! W. H. Hy land, 602 Bee Bldg., will explain It to you. e e e A 8 Stevenson, that lover of Tiny Tots, would say, "Oh! I do think It's the pleasantest thing ever a child can do" to visit The Little Folk's Section of Benson & Thome's and have Miss Adams fix them up In pretty things designed "speshully" for the younger generation. The Intent coat arrivals for Sister Dear are in black and white Shepherd's checks so serv iceable and yet with style aplenty. Box and belted models besides charming semi-empire effects, with washable and detachable collars and cuffs, so that Sister can always look sweet and fresh. These ducky coats are priced $3.60 to $10.00. Miss Adams has darling little hats, too, so when you buy the coat, be sure to find the becoming hat for Easter. Wee girls will wear little lingerie hats this summer quite frilly, with touches of color in hand-made roses, e e I NEVER saw such cunnln hankies for Kiddies In all my life I know I stopped a half hour at Thomp- ' aon-Belden's looking at them. Sol diers marching all around the square, or Mother Goose's children doing their proverbial "stunts" Id the corners, all for lOo, But there are fancy birds and butterfly designs and even flower pots for "Muvver" or "Sister" and such neat linen ones with colored borders. And, oh! such exquisite hand embroidered handkerchiefs for Easter e e e SVELTE and youthful looking! Yes! The "S. H, Camp Goodwin" and "Artist's Model" corsets are per fect foundations for your new Spring "tailor-made." Catherine Dwyer fits these models to our leading society women her sclentlflo corseting Is en dorsed by many leading physicians. 170 Douglas St. e e e I ALMOST broke the tenth command ment the other day when I beheld one of the most charming frocks of the Spring-time season. "Truly," I thought, "an artist's hand has de signed this." It was of Georgette In a delicate shade of gray, with an intri cate pattern of embroidery In self-tone silk cording. Never for a moment did I Imagine that It was other than hand-work, so I was amazed to be told that It had been done by ma chinery and It took The Ideal Pleat ing Co. a whole day to complete the beautifully elaborate design. I can surely recommend "The Ideal" at do ing the most perfect work of any thop I know In Omaha. e e I WAS out for an evening both restful and cheerful And stopped at the "MUSE" to tee what was "on." The pictures were charming, the music engaging Such a dear little place, I was glad I had gone. And after an hour or so, feeling at ease, X remembered "Muse Piotures PERPETUALLY PLEASE.' Just escaped from the circus! a gray elephant with a caravan pack on his back, and dangling from It all the things a little girl would need with which to make her first doily. Smith, Tukey and Latenser Enlist in Officers' Reserve Three more well known Omaha men are offering their services to Uncle Sara in case of war. They will enroll with Captain McKinley of the army recruiting station as members of the army officers reserve corps. Frank Latenser, Allan Tukey and Lloyd S. Smith are the volunteer offi cers. Saturday noon they called to see Captain McKinley and enroll with him, but found he was out of the city. They declared they would enroll bur. All three have been officers in AN .OLD rhymlst speaks about the primrose at "Merry Springtime's harbinger." Pausing before Leo Larmon's Flower Shop window. In The Fontenelle Hotel, I noticed many small plants abloom with these same lovely blossoms that Inspired the poet, be sides pots of bright cyclamen, cinerar ias and hyacinths for which Ruskln intent have sold the loaf of bread to feed his tpul and, oh. Just ths dain tiest little table ferns! Why not havs at leaat one of these pretty plants to adorn your home this week? It will bring happiness to all the family. They are priced only $6o to $1.00. Phone Douglas $244. m e e EASTER'S coming! And, how about your new Bonnet? Belle Hatch, 1920 Farnam, has some stunning models, both in tailored hats and beau tiful lacy affairs for evening wear. One thing I particularly love about her hats It the hand-work the putt on with truly an artltt's touch, e e e THE Immortal bard certainly knew a thing or two when be said, "The apparel oft proclaims the man." And when It comes from Luclen Stephens' Shop you may be assured of its abaolutely correct form. There you'll find your Eatter neck wear, hosiery, hat and gloves and. Mr. Man, If you're a bit ultra In your taste, may I suggest a walking stick, too? e e e SOMETHING Is surely happening In THE UPTOWN RETAIL DIS TRICT. If you don't believe me, just take a peep Into A. T. Benton's Specialty Shop, 1818 Farnam St., and tee for yourself. My, but you'll be the surprlzee when you eee the large proportions this ehop Is assuming and with all the extra, new fixtures be ing put In It'e certainly going toj be one of Omaha't most inviting shops for women. So busy was everybody the day I visited this shop this week that I did a bit of exploring on my own hook and let me tell you, I dis covered some frocks Inside the show cases that were positive beauties frPBh, little frorks of lustrous, firm taffeta, some combined with Georgette, and fft the bright, sunshiny colors so popular this Spring. Every woman should Include a blue taffeta In her wardrobe most practical thing in the world, you know! The Bnecialty Shop hat a splendid line of these. EVERY time I etop for a chat with Miss Pargcter at The Nerkwear Section of Thompson-Belden's, I spy something new and attractive In the show cases. This week It was storks of pique with wonderful ties of that marvelous silk, Yo San so good looking to wear with tailored and snorts suits, and decidedly new! Then the Georgette collars this Spring are ao pretty to "dress up" a eult or frock, and come In plain white or trimmed with colors some dainty ones with lace medallion Insets. Pongee and Rajah collars, too, are very smart In- ' deed, and Dame Fashion dictates we are to wear organdy collars this tea ton with taffeta suits and gowns. Also I taw such sweet, little veetees of embroidery, fine lace and embroidered crepe while peering Into those fasci nating show cases. e e THE World of Femininity has Its thoughts now centralized on THE EASTER HAT. Have you found yours yet? If not, let me urge you to see the tailored 'models at The Drahos-Luttlff Hat Shop. Jaunty hats In the popular shades of blue, green and rote from famed Eastern makers. The bon-ton of our city teem to favor thla shop but I don't wonder, though, for a Prahos-Luttlg hat Is characteris tic In its cleverness. e e 'e Crowns are high and brlmt are large on the modish picture hats. eee THIS little Item thould be of spe cial interest to Christian Scien tists. In looking over the many beautiful pictures on display at A. Hospe'e Store, I discovered a few finely colored platlno types that every Scien tist would enjoy having In his or her home. "The Home of Mary Baker Eddy" $2.69. 'The Mother Church In Boston" $1.6$. "Church of Christ Scientist, Concord" $1.60. Then there Is that masterpiece of St rut ft, "A Little Child Shall Lead Them," ex quisitely finished In water colors, for $12.00, and a new picture, equally ap- pealing, by the sams artist, called "The Reign of Love." "Christ In the Temple" and "Daniel In the Lions' . Den" are favorite subjects also both $12.00. H OW often do we hear ladles In clined to be stout remark. "I'm always obliged to have my The Bee's Shopping Service ts free to Its readers. Clip the items that appeal to you.
