(Coates' Hall the Scene of Great Pleasure and Much Merriment,
and the Entertainment a Pronounced Success
The annual bazaar and entertain
ment given by the members of St.
Mary's Guild of St. Luke's Episco
pal church, opened last evening at
Coates' Hall and It promises to rival
that of last year which has been
conceded to be the best ever given
in this city. The attendance last
night was not as large as hoped for,
owing to the inclement weather but
Hill it was flattering and made a
liandsome return to the ladies for
1heir work and outlay. In fact, they more than encouraged over the
receipts and are sure that tonight
will bring them in a better income
than even last year.
There were many features last
tight of much excllence. To start
with the hall was very handsomely
decorated and the" several booths
represented a great outlay of time
und money. To enter the hall was
-almost an approach to fairyland,
owing to the handsome design of the
several booths and the artictic ef
fects of their decoration.
The theme of the bazaar is the
"Seven Ages of Women," something
novel and out of the ordinary. It
was proposed to have seven differ
ent booths representing the seven
hges but one booth was necessarily
postponed owing to the illness of
Mrs. George H. Falter, who was to
?iave been in charge of it. 'This
Sooth was that of the spinster. It
is a matter of general regret that
Mrs. Fatler was taken 111 as her
booth would, without a doubt, have
teen one of the handsomest in the
The first age Babyhood, and the
Kixth age Motherhood were combin
ed together and occupied one booth.
This was a very pretty design, be
;ng In the form of a cradle with
colors of white and blue something
well worth witnessing. In addition
to the cradle there is a huge doll
at this booth which Is also handsome
and especially attractive to the Ut
ile folks. At this booth is sold var
ious articles of baby ovear and any
thing connected with Infancy can
!e found here. Mrs. C. W. Baylor
and Mrs. E. W. Cook have charge
of this booth.
Childhood is represented by a
very pretty booth, erected in the
orm of a gingerbread house, and
here all the toothsome delicacies of
fhlldhood are to be found. Ice
cream, candy, pop corn, and the like
and a grab-bag, where you never
will know what you are going to
get, from Just a few of the attrac
tions at this booth which Is In charge
of Miss Kittle Cummins. The lit-
-He folks, who were at this booth
dressed in the quaint german cos
tumes of Hansel and Gretal the
little German' lad and lassie of ro
mance and they were quite charm
ing In their make-up. The little
ladies included Misses Helen Gass,
Nora Livingston, Margaret Donelan,
Edith Dovey and Lillian Dwyer
Girlhood was a booth in form of
it garden party with pretty flowers
and dainty green foliage which de
lighted the eye. This booth was a
very tastily gotten up affair and at
tracted much attention. If was in
harge of Mrs. T. P. Livingston,
whose youthful appearance was not
ihe least attractive feature of a
handsome booth. At this booth the
')dor of delicious coffee was much
in evidence and also- the appear
ance of Boston baked beans.
Maidenhood was the booth in
charge of Mrs. Edith Donelan, and
It was much of a novelty, being
built of what was supposed to be
fish nets, .into the meshes of which
were woven handsome flowers. Mrs.
Donelan was assisted at this booth
In serving oysters, cold slaw and
the like, by a number of handsome
young ladies who were dressed in
white and who attracted much pat
ronage to the booth.
The matrons booth was in charge
of Miss Barbara Gering and Mrs.
Walter Scott. They were dressed In
the quaint matronly costumes of
many years ago and presented an ap
pearance at once pleasing and home
like and a genuine picture of domes
ticity. At this booth 's found all
kinds of fancy needle work, em
broidery, pillow covers, aprons,
towels, and the list might be extend
ed Indefinitely, all the products of
the members of the guild.
St. Luke's Guild had charge of a
porch party which represented old
age and comfort a pretty little
scene properly staged and quite in
place. Here the old folks of the
congregation held foijh while the
younger members did the business
of the evening at the several booths
As a pleasing feature cf the en
tertainment, a minstrel show was
given on an improvised stage, a
number of the young ladles ap
pearing in a genuine blackface act
and making about the handsomest
colored poulatlon ever seen in Ne
braska, or anywhere else. The pro
gram was a typical minstrel one,
and solos, gags, Jigs, reels and every
Including singing, both ensemble
thing which goes to make up a real
minstrel performance. The opening
chorus was a medley of popular
songs ' which had been especially
arranged for the occasion by
II. S. Austin and it was a
pleasing effect. Solos were given
by Miss Gladys Sullivan, who scored
a distinct hit, and mention of whose
work as an endman or woman, as
it might be, should be made. Miss
Sullivan seemed thoroughly at home
in her gags and also in singing and
carried off much aplause. Miss
Gretchen Donnelly also favored the
audience with a solo which took
exceptionally well, Miss Donnelly
having a sweet voice and one well
suited to the show. Miss Helen
Kline, who is also well known as a
splendid singer, rendered a solo of
much beauty and also met with her
share of approbation. .Miss Edna
Petersen Ms also deserving of special
mention for her work , which was
high class and which divided the
honors with the others. Miss Mollie
Seivers favored the audience with a
dance which made a distinct hit
Miss Seivers is a handsome young
woman, and proved last evening that
she was a dancer of more than
ordinary ability. The generous ap
plause which greeted her from the
audience served to emphasize her
success. .Mrs H. S. Austin also gave
a solo in her own inimitable man
ner. and carled away her sharo cf
the honors, as is I'&ucl. - All told
the minstrel was a huge success
and aided largely in making the en
tire entertainment a big one. So
great was the success of the perfor
mance that a second rendition was
necessary to accomodate all who
wished to enjoy it. fn addition to
those spoken of above, Misses Flor
ence Dovey, Varna Hatt, . Bernice
Newell and; Dorothy Brltt deserve
special mention for the excellence
of their work In the performance.
The young ladies were dressed in
white shirts and black dress coat
wjth large white, paper chrysanthe
mums as butten hole boquetts, some
thing very distinctive and out of the
It may be said In connection with
the bazaar that it has been intend
ed to Tiold the market at the spin
sters' booth but this was changed
owing to Mrs. Falter's illness and
It was held at the girlhood booth.
It was a grand success In every way
and netted a fine sum of money.
The bazaar and entertainment is
repeated tonight, and there Is every
prospect that it will draw a record
breaking crowd. It surely deserves
to do so.
Mrs. Henrichsen Demonstrates
Her Qualities at a Hostess.
One of the most pleasant enter
tainments held in the city in some
line, was that tendered the mem
bers of the Kensington club, a local
organization of ladles, by Mrs. Will
Ian Hlnrichsen at her charming home
on North Third street. The enter
tainment took place from two to five
o'clock and was thoroughly enjoyed
by all. For the occasion Mrs. Hln
richsen had the house handsomely
decorated, especially the dining room,
where an elegant collation was ser
ved the guests during the course of
the entertainment.
The afternoon was spent at cards
and music, the latter consisting of
both vocal and instrumental selec
tions while various games of the
former were indulged in. Just pre-
0113 to the close of the entertain
ment the dining room was thrown
open and the dinner served. It was
such a repast as Mrs. Hlnrichsen
knows best how to serve and was a
constant source of delight to the
guests. After the dinner had been
served the guests departed for their
homes, extending their warmest
thanks to their hostess for the splen
did entertainment she had afforded
them. ,
Those who were present Included
Mesdames Olga Croskary, Flora
Waddick, John Lutz, George Bruhl,
Andrew Kroehler and Fred Hezner.

It Isn't so difficult to strengthen
a weak Stomach if one goes at it cor

of dosing the Stomach or stimulating

Dr. Shoop first pointed out this errr.
'Go to the weak or ailing nervta of
these organs," said he. Each inside
organ has Us controlling or "inside

those organs must surely falter. This
