social season, mid generally it nets u hnnd
soino Mini for tho relief of liumnii woc.
Lincoln hml its first clmrity bnll Tuesday
evening. It w lis tho largest mid, ns n whole,
tho finest dancing jwirty o er held In the Cap
ital City. Tho gentlemen in chorgo wero ox
coedlngly fortutmto in securing tho uso of tho
Stuto House, wlileh afforded mngiilflcent nc
commodntlons mid gnve mi nildd dignity mid
chnnn. Tho hall of tho IIouso of Representa
tlvos was used for dancing. The room had
lieen In tho hands of nil oxjiorleneed man for
erol dnys, mid was handsomely decorated,
although tlio hall is lnrgo and tho walls lofty,
requiring a great deal of labor and material
tomnkonn effeotivo showing. Conspicuous
among tho decorations wero tlio nationnl col
ors. Tho upior w Indow back of thospeaker's
desk was hidden by u ling draped vertically.
On either sido was a huge flag sprend out hor
izontally with tho stars next tho window.
Ench of tho four corners was broken with
another big ling drntxxl vertically. Noxt to
nttrnct notice wero two ropes of fir fcstoonol
in parallel lines, nbout flvo feet npart.nround
tho walls of tho hall. Tho upper ropo wus
caught by loops thrown over tho ornamental
keystones In tho window caps on threo hides
of tlio room. Across tho gallery tho jxosts
served ns points of attachment. An over
green ropo nnd two evergreen rings hanging
from tho loops mentioned supported tho sec
ond parallel rojie. In each of tho angles mado
by tho festoons hung a pondnnt rojxj w ith a
tassel of fir at tho end. Tlio posts in tho gal
lery wero also twined with evergreens. Tho
sjienkcr's desk wns drniied with n flng.nndnn
evergreen ropo bridged tho spaco between tho
two upright lamps. Wreaths of evergreen
crow ned tho Inmps on tho chief clerk's desk,
and similar garlands of holly ornamented tho
brocket gas Jeta in tho three walls. Tufts of
fir mid holly relieved tho panels between tho
upper nnil tho lower tier of windows. Tho
walls wero hung with oil pnintlngs loaned for
the occasion, nnd n cluster of evergreen
branches reared tlulr heads from tho recess
back of each picture. Tho windows wero
draped with laco and chenille curtnlns (nlso
loaned), giving, with thepictures, ahome-llko
nlr to tlio big hall. Tho grand central chande
lier was studded thickly with iwndont fis
toonsof evei green, mid 11 liell nf fir swung
from tho centre by a ropo just high enough
toescujio thoheadsof thedanceis. Tho front
of the gallery was hung with interlacing flr
ropes. Midway of tho two sides wns the
date, "Jnnuary 14," In largo letters of ruby
nnd gold on n dark background mid thu
w holo IiouikI in uvei green. Hut tho gem of
the decorations remains to bo tleseiibed.
Across tho enstwnll, out the speaker's ilmk,
wns n long, narrow panel oiitllueil by n
trimming of fir. Within tho lines the panel
wns filled with snow-white cotton. Veeplng
out of this soft pure bed of down wero scores
of glnss bulbs, incandescent electric lamps,
arranged to spell the woitl "Clmrity" In
great, lutnlnouslutters.
Tho Cnpltol wns found to bo most admir
ably adapted for tho puriososof tho occasion
Admittance wns gained at tho east door, and
inside wero Messrs. 0. J.Ernst and John
Phillips to take tickets. Justbojond, at tho
foot of tho stairs lending upward, was an
olllcer in uniform to direct tho nrriving peo
ple. At the heod of tho stairs were two of
ficers to give directions as to clonk nnd toilet
rooms, mid n fourth olllcer was stationed nt
the door of tho cloak room to give any furth
er Information that might bo needed. The
rooms adjoining Representative Hall on tho
north sido of tho corridor (assigned to the
sjienker nnd tho chief clerk during tho besslons
of the legislature) wero given over to the
ladles for toilet rooms. Tho representntl es'
cloak room on tlio south Bido of the corridor
was used for a similar purposont tho bnll.
One of tho governor's npui tmenU wus sot
nslde for the gentlemen's toilet room, nnd tho
other executivo chandlers wero open with n
wide welcome for reception and promenading
uses. Tlio long corridor between tho two leg
islative halls was lighted its entiio length and
mado a line promenade. In tho cross cot ri
dors and tho nooks ubout tho rotunda were
scattered tete-a-tetes, lockers and chulrs.
The gentlemen found thuin oiy convenient
for it lounge nnd n smoke ut least such of
tho less shadowy letrenU lis weio not monop
olized b) sentimental voting eoupks who had
letlied fiom thogluio mid thu till on,; to ex
chuniM) sweet nothing. Hut of nil (ho lovely
places for u quiet confidential chat tho gov
ernors opaitnientH had thu best. They we o
filled with easy chillis mid sofas and tho sev
eral rooms woiobewiiaud fiomencli other
bv not times. Needless to sny that thcsi
splendid conveniences wero put to excellent
use during tho latter pint of tho evening,
after tiio looms weio dcscited b) proine
iiaders.
Representative Hall made n migulllcoiit
place for dancing. Tho desks, chairs mi I
railings hail been remove I, letv lug a hroa I
expanse, of enrM?tesl floor, w hleli was put Into
elegant dancing condition by a ho ivy, well
