What U Heard, Soon, Learned and 1'crtl
iioutly Htlggcitcd to (Iio Multitude.
Tlio highly cultural nudemico that greeted
the Apollo Club on Tuesday ovcnlng must
havo been very gratifying to tlio innungcrs
of tho affair. Thoy showed nbumlnnt cvl
dimco of their appreciation by vigorous
rounds of applause anil 1 think thnt socially
atul financially, it was a grand success. I
do not (too why these entoi tulimionts should
not bo given tnoro frequently us It brings our
best society jiooplo In contact wltu thoso of
our sister city and tends to promote tho
friendship that should, mid evidently docs,
exist between them. True, It costs conslder
ablu money, to sny nothing of tho singers'
time, but If our people turn out us thoy did
on this occasion, they will not forget it but on
tho other hand derive much good therefrom.
One of tho most elegant ulTuIrs I havo ever
attended was tho fan:y dress party given by
Mr. and Mrs. Quorge Hoyn to their numerous
mends at tho Metropolitan Wednesday even
lug. It vii8 undoubtedly tho event of tlio
week and if each Individual did not enjoy
themselves to their heart's content, their case
is certainly hoiieless. Tho handsomo club
house was ublazo with Illuminations in every
npartinont each of which was decorated with
nnt tiro's lovllncss in form of living green and
ilowvry beauty. Tho ntinosphoro laden with
sweet scented odors, tho tuneful music of the
Musical Union orchestra, the tmmptous ban
quet, tho well arranged dunce program and
the pleasant maimer in which every detail
was perfectly can led out, made this nHuir a
charming success and ono that tho club will
alwayH regard as ono of tho most notable In
its history of recherche events', Mr. and Mrs.
Heyu as host and hostess, I dare say, havo no
superiors in Omaha, and if tho mctroolis has
several tholr equal as entertainers, I think
tko city lins cause to congratulate itself,
I'leasant, curteous and over watchful for tho
enjoyment of their guests, tho party could
not well result other than it did. Nearly
every ono camo attired in fancy costumes and
the personages represented characterized per
sons of nolo and public popularity. Hovovcr
among tho merry makers it was pleasant to
obscrvo that no grotesque figures were seen,
but on tho contrary each ono rcpiescotcd
either some distinguished character or tho
beautiful in art and natuie. Among the
ladies was tho pansy girl, tho queen of night,
tho snow queen, tho pond lily, the butterfly.
tho rose bud, tho flower girl, Spanish tuin-
bourlno girl, Gipsy queen, fairy queen, Greek
maiden, ranch maiden, peasant girl, while
tho gentlemen wero seen as hngllsh lords,
King Henry was present, nlso tho English
general, Scotchman, French courtiers,Hoineo,
King Louis II, Hamlet, continentals, Monte
Cristo, Adonis, sailors, bicyclists, Mexican
count, etc. Many of tho costumes of both
ladles nud gentlemen wero oideied from
abroad especially for the occasion nud the
scene presented wns certainly an interesting
and attractive one.
Tlio old saying "It Is lietter to havo loved
and lost, than to not havo loved at all,"
provos jioor consolation for tho defeated can
didate thai braved the iioworsthntbouml had
his fondest hopes bhiHted. lint such is life.
Wo must not expect to lx victorious nuon and
forover, for In such an existenco, tho sweets
of life would go unappreciated. Au old quo
tntlon might well Iw adapted thus: "A little
bitterness now and then Is relished by the
best of men."
AVhllo In Omnha Wednosdny, I enjoyed a
most excellent matinee icrforiimnco of

In tho cast, tho scenery lielng something mag
nificent. Every uiemlier of iho company is a

able interpretation Intended for It by tho
notable deceased author, Hartly Campbell,
I am told tho company is to nppear at tho

Autumn Leaves and Arlor l.xfl,
Hlowly, mournfully, silently fulling
Autumn leaves to mother soil,

Hast thou reeling, hast thou reason
In thy lenfy woodland pent?
This mouth begun and closed his sen
Now he's neither shop nor cent.
Dolhthy plaintive, mournful sighlnr,
earning recall s ier skies?
Mines gone up, no chnnro ror buying,
Ne'er wero made ror counting lies.
Though not chill In raiment sombre
Hlowly rail thy leaves nnd sure,
llo'n counted every one, the number,
Four eleven rorly.foilr.
Shake thy anus lu desperation
As the bourse winds 'inongst yo dash,
Last len hours not a ration
