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.
