a "good deal" of eheek.
And It must lie nilinltted
that with the majority of tlio ik1 who
constitute what we delight to call polite
society, the display of a good deal of cheek
conies just ns easily and naturally nsdoes
the exhibition by tlio ladles of a "good deal

lioth cheek and neck wen nowadays.
Tlio "Hheridnu Guard Swing" In very pop

twist when you "swing pai titers" you swing
your girl to the full extent of both arms.
Homo of the. girls don't like It at ilrst, but
they soon gut lists) to it, and tunny of them
nfter one trial "never use any other." When
scientifically done a real tight queoo ac

One hears from easterners so often tlio
complaint, "you don't do anything but
ilnnce and piny curds out here." The auth
ors of these walls are, of course, greatly mis
taken when thoy suppose that our amuse
ments consltt entirely of thso two things;
but it must lie admitted thnt there Is a pretty
fair sprinkling of truth tu the nsiertion

time might l found for something heavier.
In many cities one of society's most popular

maintained dramatic club, and whh the

organization might liecome with us an ex
ceedingly Interesting form of nmuscment
Western culture or rather tho so-called lack
of western culture is tho subject of much
ridiculous comment In tho east, where the
jieople know us much about our social life us
they do of the habits of the Cannibal
Inlanders. It Is said thnt wo have no man
ners; that wo uro boot ish, nnd that wo have
no such thing as "society" as the term Is un
derstood in the east, (where a McAllister is a
bigger man than the president of the United
States). Any one who knows anything of
western life and civilization ktiowshut there,
is no justice iu such statements. There is in
the west genuine culture and it is widely dis
seminated. Western manners may Ikj frank
nnd hearty, and therein in their great chnrni;
but they are not boorish ; uud ns for society,
while we ure deficient in McAllisters, Derry
Walls and Mrs. Astors, qulto as much dig
nity and refinement pervade our social llfo
ns In most ol tho effete social circles of the
oust. Hecouse western men uud women rue
more enthusiastic than their eastern cousins
it does not follow thnt they ure less decorous.
Hccuuse their hospitality Is generous and
free, it cannot lie said that they uro lacking
in n proper appreciation of the niceties of re
llned soclul intercourse. There Is u differ
ence in tlio social customs of the great geo
graphical divisions of our country; but It is
not so great us some uninformed easterners
would huvo people belluve. Tho cast is not
a sy non j in for cultuie; neither is the west
However, there uro come things in our
social life thut might bu improved Ukjii.
For iustuuee art, literature und music are
much neglected. In art und music Lincoln
has an advantage over most western cities.
In the llterury field but little progress has

People everywhere like to see a young man
succeed. How tho civilized nations of the
world havo wntched with incrensing Interest
tho triumphs of Geriniiny's young ruler,
William II! At ilrst ho hud very little
sympathy ;but ills forceful character soon won
almost universal uduiitatlon and now his
brilliant career is the talk of tlio world.
From the monarch of Genuuny ho bus lie

tho help of lilsmurck. Ho has triumphed
over tremendous Obstacles und Oermuuy Is

sovereign than by u vicarious uutocraey.
Tlio young emperor has become one of th
remarkuble men of the nineteenth century

A sensational urticle in the eastern pupers
u few duys ago was headed, "A Girl lirnves
a Hoar." There is nothing very remarkable
In that. Kvery girl must of necessity brave
a boro many times.
A New York paper the other .day t oil

The latest lltvrnry lion, Ktidyard Kipling,

Thcie is a novel suit now in pi ogress in the
Iowa law courts. A month or so ago a
meteor fell somewhere in the interior of the

This is said to lie the Ilrst case on record In

The visit to the United Htatesof the Comte
