Mrs. Atwood and Mrs.Stoutenborough,
in honor of Mrs. Towner and Mrs.
Judre Keysor, two of Omaha's most
brilliant and popular club
women. Ninety-six ladies were in

'Greek Sculpture," Mrs. Chapman
presented in an able and most pleasing
manner "The Conquest of Greece by
Rome and the Revival of Greek Sculp
ture." Miss Teresa Uempel then told of the
"Antinious Statues," illustrated by
photograph of her subjects. While
Miss Heinple held her hearers in in
terested attention behold! a sound
fell on the air as though the Indians
from the far oil plains had donned
their war-paint and marched forth to
battle; a murmur of "what can it be':"'
passed from one to another, and the
bravo heart (speaking collectively) of
the Woman's club stood still and for
one brief moment refused to perform
its usual function as the thought oc
curred that perhaps Great Brittain
had come to settle the Venezuelan con
troversy and had made the first attack
upon tho Plattsmouth Woman's club.
But lo ! an opened door admitted to
their gaze forty white-robed figures
afterwards discovered to be the bus
bands,brothers and friends of the mem
bers of theWomau's club. Identification
was slow, but gradually the members
recognized the trimmed pillow-slip or
abed-spread which adorned the manly
form of the "lord" of their household.

"Greek Sculpture7' was entirely for

from tho club room to the brilliantly
lighted dining-room, where the sweet
music of the mandolin club charmed
the ear, seemed almost fairy-like. The

Mrs. Dr. Towner, president of the
Omaha Woman's club gave a delight
ful little talk on some of the benefits
which a woman's club confers. Mrs.
Towner has a pleasing manner and
the ladies seemed to enjoy her bright
talk. Mrs. Judge Keysor followed
with a talk on "Art in the Home,"
which was not only pratical but wa9
of that nature which only one familiar
with art, and possessing artistic con
ception of what she sees, could- have
given. Her remarks should have been
printed, so that those not fortunate
enough to have heard her might
receive the benefit of the cultured
thought of this intelligent woman.
The Plattsmouth club is especially

The Kight Mile Orove Literary.
There was a fair sized crowd in at
tendance at the debate at Eight Mile
Grove school house last night, when
thB question, "Resolved, that the Men
tal Capacity of the Sexes are Not
Equal," was discussed by Baeson and
Troyer on the affirmative and Lamp
son and llobbins ou the negative. The
affirmative claimed the superiority of
the masculine mind which they de
fended with vigor. The negative was
proven by incontrovertible logic that
they were equal. After a hearty,good
natured discussion the decision was
given in favor of the negative by Miss
Lulu Leist, Miss Nettie Gloeson and
Miss Ethel Perry as judges, who were
in a position to know what was what
in a question of that kind, although
ing, and only the hands of the clock' th0 affirmative was ungallant enough
to hint that the girls were prejudiced.

among the interested listeners. The

Tho Plattsmouth Woman's club was
no less pleased thau surprised at the
galantry and courtesy of their gentle

chance for an expression Saturday

of assuring them that it- is

Coming From ItelowT
If reports that reach the News are
as reliable as they appear to be the peo
ple or Nebraska need have no fear of
any lack of moisture for crop purposes
this year. Letters received by busi
ness men and reports from farmers in
various sections show that despite the
lack of snowfall, the soil below the sur
face some eighteen inches is distinctly
wet. The writers say that this mois
ture is coming from below, that the
soil is being wet from tho bottom.
Wells outfhe vicinity of Geneva
ana even-its far out as Eustis, ixi the
northwest, are gradually filling up.
and travelers say that mud puddles
are visible in tho old placeswhpr
there has been n-'i.Conly on the
theory mat tne moisture is coming up
from below. The scientific reason for
this phenomena is not given, but it
would doubtless prove interesting, al
though the most of us don't care so
much about its cause as that it is there.
