Lincoln's Hevrntli New HiuiklliK
I'liuln ltuyHl Welcome.
Society, generally soaklng, thin Benson in
Lincoln Is not as brisk as it should bo. Tho
nonson certainly Inn fully tlovelood nil I why
tho guy sound of tho ehnrinodj circle is not
mom hoard Is rather strange. Llu.-oln hus
fewer soclnl clubs today thiiu Inst season nnd
in fact fowv-r thnn sho hi I llvo your iijo.
As for tho dancing clubs wo huvo now but
two, namely, tho Pleasant Hour mid tho
Juniors, whore last season tlioro wore four
nnil tho Reason previous llvo. Of course I tlo
not claim that thoso two clubs comprise Lin
coln's social orgnulzntlous, for tlioro are nu
iiiorou? other clubs now In tho city that nro
thoroughly enjoying tho evenings In their
several spheres. There are 11 half doen or
more small card clubs, llvo Clintutiqua circles,
several literary clubs, the Elks, tho Union
and others, but In thoso we do not Ilud tho
requisite enjoyment that one Is accorded in
the social clubs that entertain at receptions,
eluborate dinners, balls, etc. Lincoln is far
behind eastern cltlas in this resiect us well ns
others For Instance, it Is seldom wo hear of
nn afternoon ton, nu evening reception, tho
giving of n Herman, n llvo o'clock dinner
party or a number of other entertainments
that go to make up society life in a city like
Lincoln claims to bo. True, wo havon larger
number of lino homes, and moroBacious and
liaiidsomo residences than Omaha, yet n com
pnrisou in the so -Inl doings is odious, oven al
lowing that Omaha is twice as large. Lin
coln now has at least a dozen homes whose
owners are wealthy or well to do, claim to bo
nnd are social leuders, yet to entertain, never
think of it, or If they do, it is at a card party
or some entertainment similarly elaborate.
WhutCi n large, elegant homo good for If it
is not to bo enjoyed and certainly it can in
no other way bo better enjoyed than by ex
tending the courtesies to friends.
Wo need moro social organizut Ions in Lin
coln. There is plenty of material for thorn
to organize with and much good to be derived
therefrom. These soci 'ties are tho menus of
bringing people together, forming now ac
quaintances, learning more of each other,
nnd in short are the foundations of forming
friemulillH which ill many cases, ns It has
right here ut home, made warmest kind of
friends and companions among members.
Even such things as lovo nnd matrimony
have been the result of the pleasant relations
formed in the club or at its gatherings. It
nlso helps the young man in business nnd in
every day life. Ho becomes better acquaint
ed with his fellow iiiun, cultivates his friend-1
ship and in tho course ot time one can mid
does do much for tho other.
It seems cxikmisIvo to some to belong to
a social organization, but Ilgured in tho long
run, it is pioven to bo quite inexiteuslve.
Everv young mun wastes a certain iortion of
his earnings, while searching tor amusement
orn place to pass his evenings. In the club,
though it meets but seldom, lie pays but com
pnrutivoly small dues for tho mouth or sea
sou. He attends tho entertainments thereby
lessening a desire for other attractions, mid
while nt tho club's nlfnlrs innkcs such friends
ns will mako him tho recipient of various do
sirublo Invitations. F.'guied in this wny, to-
mther with tho other features given above,
certainly tho expense of maintaining tho club
is but small, nnd 1 hojio to see more of these
social ties formed during tho present winter
in Lincoln,
Tho people of southeast Lincoln seem to
have excellent cause for complaint ngainst
the city and certainly if they are paying for
ilro protection they should by all means have
it. Tho Ilro warden assort that ho was
promptly on hand with tho department Tues
day hlght and in readiness to throw water
on tho Homes, but nlas, after trying three
plugs, them was no water and three dwell
ings.two of which were just being completed,
wont to tho ground, witnessed by over a
thousand people. It woidd seem that after
bo much delay that tho nuthoritios would
either hurry tho completion of tho water
mains lr. that vicinity or purchase n chemical
engine or some other sort of extinguisher to
protect our homes. It does not seem right
to take tho money of southeast Llncolnites as
Hro tax and give them no return whatever.
Then again, many of our handsomest homes

constant dread that in hey should catch lire
that tho houses are to burn to tho ground for
want of protection, us did tho three Tuesday

With tho owning of the Now Year Lincoln
hn gained many now enterprises, not only In
tho mercantile sphere but in other Hues as
well. Our banking facilities have always
lieen oxcclltut and among our financial In
stitutions huvo been numbered some of tho
strongest bank In the west. However
tho Hold has not been fully covered III this
Hue and Lincoln has had ample support for
nnother such Institution, and to till tin va
cancy n number of prominent business
men organized what Is now Kipularly known
ns tho American Exchange la ik.
Tho hunk was organized nut Incorporated
early In December of tho pas', year and with
tho Initial dav of 1 88'. I the Amuriemi Ex
change begun It's career, which although
scarcely starUsl has received every encour
agement that could Im sliowu It und more no
jHwIts thnn the fondest hoss of tho directors
over nntlclputol.- Husliiewt men look upon
tho now b ink with general favor nnd seem
to take n kindly Interest in its welfare, nnd
that it will bo a success rrom tlio start Is al
ready assured, judging from tho business
that has been truusuctcd hi its thus far,
brief life.
Tho gentlemen comprising tho ftockholders
are from our most prominent and opulur
business men nnd so vnluablo Is tho stock to
day thatnotn shnro Is for sale, stockholder
preferring to keep it than to sell nt nil ud
vanco although there is a constant demand
for it, and not only has this demand been
hero nt homo but from tho east, where cap
italists to our certain knowledge have olfered
to take some nt nu advance, nnd this certain
ly sieaks volumes for tho Institution.
Tho otlleen nnd dlrecton of tho bank who
were elected January second, for tho ensuing
yenr, nro gentlemen of popular business tact,
shrewd financiers, and just such persons as
havo never fulled to lie successful in their
reseetlvo undertakings. Hon. I. M. Ray

bright young man, thoroughly oxiHtrienccd
in tho calling, having served four years with
tho Htnto National bank of this city, is tho
assistant cashier mid presides at tho teller's
Certainly with such a list of oHIcera and
directors tho bank's destinies nro in ex
cellent hands und If success in uhuuduuee is
not lurched on their banner, the Couhiku
would consider no other institution capable
of achieving that desired end.
Tho bank is located In tho new Sheldon
block, corner Eleventh and N streets, which
is In-comlng u central nnd most desirable lo
cation, and one ns a banking quarter can
not fail to lie npprecinted by with the mor
chunts in that vicinity nnd tho bunk people.
Tho room Is light and especially fitted and
built for thnt business, having in It n largo
Ilro proof vnult nnd other nccessorles needed
for tho convenient transact Ion of banking
pursuits. Tho new burglar proof safe was
placed In position in the vnult yesterday und
Is certainly a lieauty as well us u notch too

Ever since Mrs. Shnw mado such a hit with
her whistling performances, actresses
throughout the country have fallen into lino
and intioduce selections which they whistle
instead of singing. Annie I'ixley is the last

success by introducing n whistling olo in
"Tho Charity Girl."

Joseph Jefferson and Stuart ltohsou will

Mr. Hobsop will present tho new romantic

Mr. W. A. Abbott Is certainly making a
great success of the Capital hotel billiard
parlors. Ho has just returned from t. trip
east where he purchased a supply of new
bulls nnil cues, tho tables havo been re-covered
and nil tho necessary Improvements havo
been made to mako a first class hall of it
Patrons may feel assured that they will re

hi long, Kh) ui'iiiy complications arising to
mako tho play comprehensible, nnd the hero

Tho favorite college absurdity, "Vacation,
or Harvard vs. Yale," will IwHienat FuiikeV
otr,i house this evening, with the la
voiltc comedians, the D.dys, In tho prlnel
pal ehnructorw, ably seconded by a company
of decidedly agile und musical propensities,
This play hus always found favor III the eyes
of our theatre patrons mid an extended men
tion of Its merit, and iueldcnt wilt ho un
necessary, us it has been given h-ro quite a
kiumlHjr of times. "Vacation" will bo hand
somely staged and will doubtless attract u
large uudienco.
Tho greatest attraction of tho tenson nt the
People's Is on for Saturday night and Is none
less than thoover opuliir;eomedliin,Mr. Ezin
ivendnll, who presents a play written and
staged by himself, assisted by a compinyof
eomiMitent artists. Mr. Kendall's prices are
alwuvsfOc, 750 anil I.OO.hut on this occasion
so its to pock tho house, prices havo lieen in
duced to SW, AO nnd 7f cents. I ho company
played last week at lloyd's opera hoiiso in
Oitiuhn, and plays at none but high priced
houses everywhere, and curries Its ow.i bund
and classic orchestra.
Tho Chicago Mull says: "Ab mt n yenr ngo
tho.UuiVhud to say: E.ra F. Kendall has
certainly curried of the honors this week."
Ho was playing "A Pair of Kids" ut tho
Grand then. Tho Indicators or last night
are that tho same can bo said at tho end of
this week, of the engagement at Hooley'-. it
is nuo of tho most amusing entertainments
now on the IxMints, und Kendall is looming
in tho u)ier tier of comedians. U Is related
on good authority that en two dlllVrcnt oc
ccuslons recently when Mr. Kendall was
playing "A Pair of Kids," pintles In the
audience laughed themselves into fits over
the comical situations presented. It is not
dllllcult to believe this. As a laugh producer
Kendall Is a success.
Tho coming week will see a show ench
night lit the People's. Hob llrown ill secur
ing tho Ml ilk ley Company has stiuck just
what will suit his patrons; the best plays at
popular prices. They present un entire
change of hill at each erforiuaiice their
reportolre Including "Sinn nnd Master,"
"Ijiily Audley's Secret," "Silver King,"
"Lidy of Lyons," ami a dojjn other popular
plays. The Denrer IteinthKcan snys: "l)un
ver audiences havo seldom seen better acting
thun was displayed in this piece. It is seldom
thnt emotionul assages nre nut exaggerated
nnd overdone. Miss Mlukley Is to lie con
grntulnUsi thnt she Is so fur u muster of her
self nnd her Hues us to bo able to give to all
her action tho true touch of nature, she Is
nn nctress of excellent talent and lino pres
ence, and her costumes lire both ilch und el
egant. As for her treatment of "Man und
Master," too much cull not Ikj said In her
praise. It wus replete with naturalness sel
dom seen 111 plays of this class and gave evi
dence of patient study and severe training.
The company is first-class. In fact t.iero Is
not a stick hi it.
Judging from tho rapidity with which seats
were sold at tho Fuuko oiern house Isix
olllee this morning, one of tho lnrgest nnd
most fashionable audiences of tho season will
witness tho piesentatiou of "Jim, tho Pen
man," by Mr. A. M. Pahnei's roiiiHiuy,
Monday evening. This company comprises,
among others, that sterling actor, Mr. F. (1.
Il.iugs, wiio assumes tho role ot "James Hal
stou." Mr. Hangs is an old favorite In Lin
coln, having made a billliiiut reputation for
himself when he npcuu-d hero ns "Tho
Silver King," und ut ither times fu Sliuke
screnn roles. Ho has no sticr!or on tho
stage ns"Jiin, The Pentium." Mr. Wright
Huntington is consideied one of the hand
somest young leading men on the stage, and
is said by the critics to be tho best "Louis
Percivnl"Mr. Palmer has ever hail. Mr.
Hnrdee Kliklalid, although coinpai lively
unknown in this city, gives u iK'rfect finished
h!i'formnuce of ''Cuptaiu Redwood," tho de
tective, und he will not sutler ut nil In com
pnrisou with any one who hus played the
pint. Mr. Guy Lliulslny is couslloiod lo Ixj
u manly "lord Diclineotirt." Miss Clara
Llpmaun, the sweet and charming "Agues,"
is tho same us ever, ami makes a most favor
able Impression. Mr. J. L. Ottoinoyer, who
plays "Huron Hartlleld," Is a thorough ilra
matio artist, and for yean has Ix-en tho
leading German actor in New York City,
Miss May llrookyn, who was the Hint leading
lady of tho company has since been reinstat
ed in this company and will return to Lin
coln to pluy tho part of '-Nina" (Mrs. Rul
Bton) during this engagement. Miss Urookeii
has not, us fur us we huvo heard, a prlvub,
enr, or fifteen dresses by Worth, but tdio has
the UXI.OOO dlesses of expression w hich nature
cull glvo nu intellectual face. Tho engage
ment is for two nights and will undoubtedly
prove tho most nrtlbtio dramatic event of
the season. Such couqwnioH as bear the ti
tle stump of A. M. Pu liner need no recom
meudutlon from the press, for their starling
merits are known to every lover of stage
amusements. The attraction is one that
eaten to tho most rellued taste, tho stage
dressing, scenery, etc., all catering to that
element, Tho Madison Hquuro theatre never
sends out nu.vthlug but the lsst and "Jim,
Hid Peiimauj" ranks lint In tho list of splcu
ill I attractions that aro out under Mr.
Palmer's management nnd tho CouiiiKH

Iiiterpstlng to Our Ijtdles,
A lady may attain accomplishments In so
ciety, may Ikj beautiful In face und foim.and
may lie quite (sipular generally, but theto Is
always one thing that gx?s against her ut till
times, in all places, and that is the lud con
dition of tho linger tlm. A lady nowadays to
move In tiood company must consider this us
one of tho llrst essentials In nps.uruuce.
Fine dresses, trimmings, Jewelry etc., go to
muke up nn attractive dress, but without the
fingers being proierly manicured one's
attire Is sudly dellcleiit. A lady seatisl nt tho
piano, at tea or most any where else where
tho hands ure conspicuously brought into use,
prominently show the llngeis unit whllo her
gnrments may Ikj tho most stylish, yet the
uureiinisl npHnruuco oi tho finger nulls tin
manlcuiol, detract from tho gtsxl Impres
sion a lady desires to make iqsiu associates.
Tlioro is much to admire In a lady's hand
when tho tlw have Ixs'ii projs'rly H)lished
a id ttken care of and show iiflnemeut and
a isiptilar accomplishment.
