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.

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.

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

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.

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.
