extreme praise to say that Miss Prescott
Las the greater merit of the two. De
Marie Prescott is a great actres. She
reaches the highest ideal in acting in
causing the audience to forget the actress
and only feel with the character. She is
terrible in her passion, grand in heroism
and heart rending in sorrow, and her
magnetism draws her so closley to her
audience that they forget the play and
weep and laugh with the woman. Cin
Nature has been kind to Mr. McLean
in fitting him for the assumption of this
class of characters. Of heroic sizi, he
possesses a voice that is full, resonant and
powerful, yet capable of very delicate
modulation. His stage presence is in
spiring, his personal attractiveness re
markable and his method correct and
artistic in the highest sense. Philadel
Mr. Tom Patterson, whilo running

Grand Island last Saturday, attempted
to dodge the third base man and turned

accident will, no doubt, lay him up for
a much longer time as it was more seven.

great service for the club.

The Y. U. R n. A.
The Y.L. R. R. A. Ti.c Young Ladies'
Heading Room Association has merited
for itself an enviable reputation since its
organization, and it has gradually work
ed its way into prominence and become
an honor, as it can claim a share in thr
intellectual advancement of our city.
The society was organized on the 2.1th
day of February, iHS't, and it consisted
of eighteen of our most estimable young
ladieu. They labored under many disad
vantages and found many obstacles in
their way which they were obliged to
overcome in order to obtain a foothold
and succeed iu making their work take
effect. At first it. was only thought of as
a social society, but after a few meetings
were held, they decided oq furnishing a
room and procuring the material neces
sary for a reading room. They received
little encouragement from the public, as
every one they came in contact with was
apparently under the impression that their
efforts would soon fall through, and no
donations have ever been received ex
ceeding $5. Since they manifested per
severance in the work, they have received
considerable encouragement in various
ways. Concerts under the auspices of the
association have been given constantly,
all, with only a few exceptions, receiving
good patronage from the citizens.
A large dumber of the young ladies
who composed the association in its
organisation are still members, ouly se
ven of the eighteen having withdrawn.
The following ladies who originated the
idea of opening a public reading room are
worthy of the praise of every citizen:
Misses Kate Dorrington, Sue Sampson,
Josephine Morrisey, Olive Jones, Hattle
Fulmer, May Cranmer, Maggie O'Hourk
Lillian Pollock, Anna Murphy, Lelia
Thomas, llattie Sheffer, Kate itemplr,
Addie Seail, Mrs. Wilkinson, nee Laura

in the city, thse young ladies have of
fered to assist the young men in their
good work by paying for one of the three
rooms to be occupied by them iu the
Anheuser-Busch building, for five months
They have also offered to furnioh the
room find have donated about three hun
