WOSIAVS CLUB KEIitLAKMEETINU
A Poem by Sirs Hichey If Kratl lSefore
The Wom;m'a club met in regular
session in their room last evening.
Topic Art; leader, Mrs. Snyder.
Miss Ilertha Ilycrs presented a carefully-written
paper on "Ancient
Tainting." She spoke of Egypt, tho
crnillo of art and science, of its tombs
witti their inscriptions, ana brought
out the thought "that tho Egyptian
wall-painting produced a picture lan
guages almost akin to a written ono."
Miss Emma Tresham spoke of "Mural
Tainting" among tho Romans, who,
wanting in native talent themselves,
borrowed from the Greeks. In an in-leret-ting
manner she brought to view
tho mural beauties of i'ompeii, the
landscapes of Italy, nd the "Lord s
Kupjer"bv Ue Vn.fi painted on the
wail of a c onvent adjoining the church
of "Santa Marie," near Milan. She
concluded by saying: "The beauty
Mid richness of that time has pre
served a hint to us of tho splendors of
what time has destroyed." "Taint
ing in Catacombs ' was tho theme of
Mrs. Munger's essay, r.nd was a nicely
prepared paper, telling of those
fiici?nt burial places of tho ucad and
of tho allegorical meaning of the
symbols plaeed therein. Mrs. Munger
alluded to tho "pas.-ares of tho Cata
combs as the birth-place of early
Christian painting." Mrs. liurton,
who was to have an article on "Byzan
tine Taiting," being absent, Mrs.
Snvder took the theme, beginning
al-out the year H) with the efforts of
Constantino to make another Home.
Sho nresented the glories of the
Rv.antino period as only a devotee of
art could be able to do. Mrs. Waugh
closed the program with a most inter
esting paor on the "I'aintings of Our
Saviour," illustrated with eopies from
somo of the most noted representa
tions. The wiiter gave the legends
connected with the "Odessa" and the
"Veronica" icpresentatioris and des
cribed most interestingly tho copy
from a Mosiac now in tho museum of
This boing the last meeting of the
art department for tho present year,

who had so ably tilled tho assign
ments given them, and announced that

tlh wondrous art that chains the tieoting day
Aivl holds it here while counties ages throng.
Jieiund ihe power ol Time to steal away
C.rey-t)e;iuled Time who bears the world along.
Methinks these men have life, that stand so still
The while our mortal eyes look on and see;
Methinks they roam these charnel vaults at will,
W hen from our espionage they know they're
Who kens what echoes wake these halls
What revels here in these dark tombs are held.
How wild and shrill yon pictured trumpet calls.
tr how yon crimson wounds with life-blood
These firey beasts that seem about to sprinR
W ith two-wheeled chariot o'er the broken stones
Perchance may hear some long dead accents ring.

Perchance that love is here and twines his arms
About these graceful lorms in purple gowned.
Laughter and mirth may add their pleasing
And ruby cups bcclinked these walls around.
How could the spirit stray beyond return

Nav! nay twnuld creep within the tinted urn,
Aud all life's joys and active pleasures seize!
W hen none is bv to tell the tale abroad
I know these pictured kings their rights resume.
These faithtul slaves obediently applaud

.Stand Ily Your Town.
The worst drawback to tho pros
perity of this town is the continued
expenditure of money each month in
Omaha which ought to be left in cir
culation here. This paper bas worked
continuously for tho upbuilding of our
city, and when an Omaha advertising
house offered $100 in cash for space in
The News to advertise Omaha firms,
as was done a few weeks ago by a
member of tho firm who called at our
oilico for tho purpose, wo declined,
saving that to- many of our people
traded in Omaha now, and to en
eourage more to do so was something
we would not do. The daily Journal
also proved loyal to the town and re
fused the Omaha advertising, but the
4x0 "organ," called thoTribune,which
asks tho support of tho people of this
city, grabbed at an opportunity to
stab the business interests of tho
town whero it ekes out an existence,
and every evening it flaunts in the
face of its readers tho "ad." of Omaha
leading department stores, and at the
samo time shows its regard and inter
est in the welfare of l'lattsmouth.
Every business man who supports such
a sheet or countenances it in any way
deserves to lose all his trade to Om
aha houses. If the public and es
pecially the merchants and business
men hero do not appreciate the loyalty
of The News and Journal, the pro
prietors might as well add a few hun
dred dollars to their income as not,
even though it bo at the expense ol
the city. Tho right thing to do i9 to
stand by and support thoso who sup
port your interests, rather than thoso
who try to injure and destroy the pros
perity of the city.

'Iho town across the river, notwith

usually the seat of a fight or a brawl
of some sort every time the people got
together, whether at a prayer meeting

remarked to a News reporter, "A fel

was in attendance' at divine services
when a web-foot from Taciiic

ensued without delay. The conflict
was warm from start to finish, and fi

in the chest and side and was bleeding
