Who wouldn't attend n church fair when,
for it paltry twenty-llvo cents you might
kiss tho prettiest girl In tho congregation?
No single young man who has any respect for
himself csuld eschew such an entertainment,
and it is no wonder that tho kissing beo re
cently given by tlio young ladies of a Long Is
land Presbyterian church in connection with
theconventlonal fair was a tumultuous success
Tlio ladles were pretty and tho men tumbled
over themselves in their eagerness to press
tho cutely puckered lips and blushing cheeks
cf tho meek and lovely maidens. Quarters
flowed like water. The lino of men at tho
kissing booth was never broken. One kiss
was only an aggravation and the young
bloods only stopped osculating when their
money wus gono or time was called. Of
course tho prettier the girls tho moro success

If tho capital city's fair ones embraced this
latest eastern novelty I
"What Is tolitlcal economy!" asks a sub
scriber. When an office holder succeeds In
saving 10,000 per year out or n $2,000 ofllco
that's political economy.
Next to tho Mrs. Astor controversy the ex
act social status of tho college student who
serves com fritters nnd iced tea to the nlry
fairy summer girl, Is tho most troublesome
question at eastern tileasure resort h. Whether
"between meals" ho should be regarded as a
servant or a guest is n problem that gives no
little, uneasiness to tho "managing mammas"
and the young men board ere. Tho girls In
cline to tho student-waiters, whose moral
heroism they profess to admire,andthe plain,
ordinary, every day society youth Is discon
solate. If a halt is not soon called there may
be trouble at some of tho select resorts. In
the meantlmo the girl who spoons with the
waiter while of duty continues to get tho
largest dish of ico cream und the piece, of cake,
with tho most raisins in it.
The iiewspajier man who, tho other day in
formed n fair inquirer that it would not bo
proper for a young lady to accept an Invita
tion to the. theater from a gentleman whoso
acquaintance sho had mado but a fow hours
since at a picnic, on tho ground that sho did
not know tho gentleman well enough, can
never have attended a picnic.
Tho pleiunntcst time in tho year tho No
bruska year Is here. It Is altogether too
pleasant to remain indoors, and noltody
should. Walking parties lire much In voguo
In the far east at this season and there is no
reason why they should not bo popular in this
favored locality. English women nro fam
ous walkers. Their American cousins uro
mere novices In this respect. No outdoor
exercise in which women can engago is moro
healthful and it is strnugo that walking has
never been thoroughly iKtpuInrized in this
country. In these bright August days n
walk in tho early morning Is wonderfully ex
hileratlng. Walking parties for women
should bo encouraged.
Tho ninn who has been trying to llnd put
w hero all the pins go Is now endeavoring to
ascertain what Incomes of tho summer girl
when the gladsome summer wuues and dlsup
penrs. It is ns natural for most girls to lllrt (Just a
little if you please) as it Is for water to run
down hill, and men nro not any moro bnck
ward In tills respect. In fact they all do it.
It Is a dangerous amusement, however,
and few there nro who know Just where to
stop. Tho habit, onco formed, is asdllllcult
to shako on ns tho chills, and it grows on a
person llko a Virginia creeper on tho sldo of
t house. It Is slow, but sine. Gradually it
entwines you in itc meshes until, from a mod
eat youth or maiden you become a continued
lllrt Borne of tho Lincoln girls have passed
tho llrst stages nnd Income unusuully profic
ient in tho amusement. It is not to their
credit; nor to their mothers', and right hero
Is tho whole trouble. Tho mothers nro in too
many case utterly indifferent tothn comings
nnd goings of the daughter, nnd tho girl left
to theinelvc, proceed to havo n "good time"
Street flirtation is mo.-it pernicious nnd tho
"mammai" who appear to havo such tender
solicitude for their "darlings'" welfaro.mlglit
do well to keep nu eyo on tho frollcsomo
young misses. Tho men will lllrt nnywoy.
They enn't help It.
Of course after tho notoriety which Wnna
maker has given "Krotitzer Sonato" by de
claring it unfit for transmission In that chan
nel of purity, tho United States mall, It nat
urally follows that It should lio dramatized
and put on tho stage. Hut It Is very seldom
that a successful liook makes n successful
play, and ns tho present furoro will doubtless
havo spent Itself in a fow mouths, it is prob
able, that "Kreutzor Sonato" on the stage
will be as dismal n failure ns tho dramatiza
tion of "Sho."
How silly nnd utterly senseless does a topicul
song appear in hard, cold tyef And how
ridiculous nnd flat do tho sallies of so-called
fun of the minstrel show appear to us tho
next morning after tho performance! Wo
can too nothing funny in tbo things that wo
laughed at until tho tears came, tho night be
fore nnd wo havo a feeling that wo ir.odo fools
of ourselves in jwitronlzlngsucli nu entertain

wo havo our reserved seats as usual, and
laugh ns hearty as over. Strange, but true.

In Europe when tho meeting of tlio Czar
and William II was held, public travel was
entirely Busended on tho principal railway
for tho week. European subjects nro cer
tainly very docllo to submit to such roynl
prerogatives as this. A common carrier
should bo a common carrier and no power
should bo permitted to deprive tho public of
Us services. Imagine trying this sort of
thing on Americans! Hero there Is a general
howl overy tlmo tho president travels on u
Some of th persons who wero so favorably
Impressed by tho fun of Messrs. Primrose and
West may bo surprised to hear that these two
gay minstrels and partners in business, havo
not spoken to each other off tho stage for
seven months. The Thiklkh is informed
that such is tho case. Tho only reason ns
signed for tho coolness in tho professional
pique which wo nro told is characteristic of
theatrical jieoplo and musicians.
Chicago Is a never falling source of sensa
ttons. Tho latest is a rumor that tho world's
fair is in serious danger of collapsing. 'TIs
said that tho money that was promised comes
In very slowly nnd unless some of tho million
aires come to tho rescue tho big fair Is doom

is nothing moro than a fouudatlonless scare.

Tho llrst night of tho sensou at Funko's
oiern house was nu over-Mowing success
artistically and llnauelally. Primrose and
West's minstrels packed tho house Monday
evening notwithstanding the fact that tho
lat minstrel show, which misgiven only a
fow weeks ago, whs solium lint of n disap
pointment, and tho big audience was thor
oughly satisfied with tho entertainment,
Primrose, West and Lew Dockstuder aro an
Incomparable trio. Their fun has a peculiar
refinement and individuality which havo
brought this company Into hearty favcr
with the largo class of iooplo who enjoy a
minstrel performance free from tho vulgar
ities which too often chnracterlzo burnt cork
productions. Tho fun Is Just as sMntaueous
nud side splitting; hut It Is toned down to
meet the tnsto of the liettcr class of play-goers.
There Is no reason why mi entertain
ment of this kind should bo mado up of
variety theater fun, ycleped, "horseplay"
and to this company, perhaps moro than any
other, Is duo the elevation of the stage of
minstrelsy. There Is a very pretty scene In
tlio llrst part in which some beautiful musi
cal selections nro given. Among tho notable
solos were, "Baby's Picture on tlio Wall" by
Fred E. Reynolds, tho cotiqioser, nml "Tho
Light Ship Straight Ahead" by Fred Oakland.
Tho company is unusually strong In tenors
and In the choruses tho well modulated and
carefully trained voices produced some de
lightful music. Billy West is an (deal inter
locuter. Ho has tho self nsscrtivenos neces
sary in this part, and his work Is done most
effectively. John Queen's original topical
song, "Expectations" contained soino very
appropriate local ullusins mid was received
tumultously. Low Dockstader's song, "I
Don't Seo Where it Comes In" wns a distinct
hit. Primrose ns a light plai 1 swell was
Irresistibly funny. Tho march of the "Im
perials" n "novelty of magnificent splendor,"
was ono of tho best exhibitions of drilling
over seen In Lincoln. In this part the uni
forms were, as a young lady in tho dress
circlo remarked, "perfectly gorgeous." Cain
and Loreno, the grotesque aerial artists, wero
unique in their way; tho little fellow pro
duced n decided sensation. Tho entertainment
closed with the usual uproarious farce. The
Jokes were nearly all now, the costumes
pretty nnd striking, nnd nltogcthor the show
wns very tnklng. White faces still continue
in favor with Primrose and West.
The umusemeut season In Lincoln which
opened so auspiciously Monday evening, will

"What do you think about tights! was
asked of Louise Montague, who is making a
sensation in tho "Crystal Slipper" now play
to big business in Chicago, the other day. She
replied: "What do you Imply by that ques
tion! Do you mean considered from a stund
jKjInt of looks, morality, health or what! If
you mean how do I llko the looks of tights. I
should say in reply that It depends altogether
uon the wearer. They can bo mi artistic de
light to tho eyo or they can bo quito the re
verse. I can conceive of circumstances under
which it wou'd bo quite iuiK)ssiblo for tho
nicest pair of tights to look well; then I can
imagine, circumstances under which very or
dinary tights would become things of beauty,
If not Joys forever. It nil dovnds, us I say,
upon the weurer. As to tho modesty of tho
custom of wearing tights on tho stage I must
say that I think that depends upon the weurer,
too. Tights cuu bo worn modestly, Just as
dresses can bo worn Immodestly. Now, don't
you think so yourself! I don't believe that n
woman was over injured in her moral char
acter by wearing tights in roles where they
were demanded. By the way, why Is the
subject of tights discussed so much! Why
not ask if bare arms mid shoulders are Im
moral) I don't see why one vet of limbs
should bo discriminated against moro than
another. Is there any reason why a part of
tho leg covered with silk should Is) considered
any moro demoralizing than arms and shoul
ders uncovered? I don't s-o It."
