'.riie Union Itacd.
Tliu mcmbors of Uuiou Society hold their annual
Thanksgiving Feed in the society hall lust Friday
evening. The hall had been turned iuto a parlor
for the evening and was very prottily decorated
with banks of potted plants and cut llowors. After
a series rf progressive table games a short musical
program was tendered. Two very sweet solos by
Mr. Boostrum followed by a couple of selections by
the Abbott Discord Quartotte, composted of Messrs.
Kullman, Hoitzman, Plowht'ad aud Searson. Thou
came the "feed." It is needloss to state that all did
ample justice to this part of tho program. The
Unions felt that they had great cause to "eat, drink
and bo merry" over tho success of their work this
year. At tho close of tho banquet, toastmastor
Heitzman in his own inimitable way introducod the
fwl owing toasts: "Tho Signs of tho Times," II. S.
Evans; "Unrealities," Martha Chappoll; "Tho
.Status of Woman, Earnest Bcssoy; "AThauksgiving
Story," Annette Abbott and "Uuion Rominiconces"

Tho Palladian girls have proven that thoy can
keop a secretprovided the time docs not exceed
four days. Thev took charge of tho annual Thanks
giving "feed" Wednesday, November 24, and carried
out their plans in a manner unprecedented in the
history of tho society. They were oven able to bring
some of tho boys into sorvica (ns Pearson, Perry and
Campbell wdl testify) to carry out their deep laid
plans. Tho hall was decorated with clean curtains
and tho Palladian "rag" -that was all. It seemed
very queer for a Pall feast. The girls succeeded in
keeping down all suspicions by entertaining with
old fashioned games etc. Mr. Boostrum rondored
a vocal solo. It was only half past nine whon the
grim old night watch entered tho hall to turn smt
the lights. This was beyond reason. Tho boys
woro indignant. Corey tried to reach tho telephone.
All in vain. The will of tho girls was law. That
awful march was begun. It included all of the
principal streets of Lincoln and every other street
loading into thono streets. Tho party passed Sutton
& Hollowbush. Tho boys would go no further so
tho girls consonted to Btop. It was hero that tho
feast had been laid. After tho light, refreshments
came tho best feast of all tho toasts by Palladian
gills. Miss Jetlory acted as toastmistross aud
showed herself abundantly able to fill such n place.
"Thanksgiving" by Miss Ida Lowis was treated in a
most unique and pleasing manner. "Our Now
Members" by Miss Ella Leonard made overy old
member wish ho had just joined. "Palladian Boys"
by Miss Jossio Stanton, was treated In a manner in
which only Pall boys could bo treated. Thoy all ro
solvoa" not to miss tho slato again this year. Tho
inevitable ovorlasting "John Jones" by Miss Grace
Cook certainly touched the heart of every Palladian.
It was a most eloquent tribute to our best frioud.
"Our Alumnus" was responded to by Miss Flora
Bullock. There woro about soventy present. The
girls gave scarlet and cream carnations as souvenirs.
The "feed" of '97 ouded with ".John Jones" and
"Long Livo the Palladian Girls."

Tho members of the Delian Society who did not
go homo to oat turkey mot in tho hall last Friday
evening as was their custom. Thoir objeot in meet
ing was not to listen to a program but to have u
general good time. Tho evening was spent in all
kinds of pleasantry. The committee hnd provided
some light refreshments, (which, by tho way, got,
very heavy before morning) and that's where the
reed came in. That ovetyono enjoyed the ovening
goes without saying
