The change in the weather Saturday
to a decidedly spring-like temperature ,
brought the frost out flying , and an odd

result , Omaha's stone and brick structures

atone was the prettiest , e\-ery block of its
material being covered with the white
coating an inch thick , which , drying grad
ually off at the corners , left exch a perfect
ellipse'of frost work. The Union Pacific

Interesting social events during the
past week , some cf which , including
the celebration by the Burns club ,
have already been detailed in THI
BEE. It is not amhs to nay at ttit
point that several Omaha ladies and
gentlemen went all the w y to St.
Louis to see Bernhardt , anc
now Manager Mtho , of the
Academy of Music , has securec
a communication which ia for the pur
pose cf ascertaining how manv people
would go to St. Joe at five dollars pe >
head , the said sum to include railroad
fare both ways and admission to see
Sarah. This ia a remarkably low rate
and no doubt many will take advan
tage of the opportunity to see the
actress who has of late ao agitated the
public mind. Minager Mealio wil
open a list at Max. Myers & Bros ,
where names may be left.
PKESBYTERIAN C1ICKCH SOCIABLE.
O e of the most enjoyable of the
alphabetical sociables in the church
parlor of the Presbyterian church
during the present season took place
list Tuuraday evening , under the
auspices of the L. M. N. &
O's. The ladies whose names came un
der the catalogue of the above named
letters , had epartd no pains to male
the room homelike and inviting , anc
a large number of the congregation
and their friends were present to en
joy their iospilaUty and listen to the
following programme presented for
their entertainment :
Sulla Lomba , Lucretia Borgia. Donizetti ,
Piano and violin , Hiss Wilson and Mr.
Song. . . Mr. Penmll.
Song Mrs. Kennedy.
Piano Solo Miss Ettie Wilson
Song Mr. Arm tage.
Piano Solo Miss Mamie Wilson
Deaf Mute Performance. .
Cavat.n. . B iff. violin anil p'aco , MKS Wil
son and Mr. Annitage
Song Mr. Penm 1.
The opening selection , for piaio
and violin , was rendered with fine ex
ecution by Mr. Armitagt , of the B &
M. headquarters , and Mies Wilson.
Mr. Arm it age showed himself the
possessor of considerable technical
ability as a violin soloist , and Miss
Wilson ably sustained her refutation
as one of Omaha's most gifted
piantste. Mr. Jennill's sjlo was en
thusiastically received. The gentle
man's rich and finely cultivated voice
has rarely been exhibited to bet'er
advantage. Without going into further
detail , it is sufficient to s.iy that the
solus by the Misses Wilaon and the
? iolin and piano rendering of a eara
Una , by Riff , were pirticu'arly well
received by the guests , while the
whole progra-nme gave evidetica of
careful selection and conscientious
treatment on the part of the perform
ers. The whole entertainment , which
was as informal and enjoyable as pos
sible , reflected the greatest credit up
on the committee , and marks a new
era in church sociables in our city.
The next entertainment iu the
Unity Lyceum lecture course will
take place on Thursday evening of
the coming week.

For perfection in the minutest de

costumes , the maequerade patty of
Thursday evening by Mr. C. C. Field
takes the belt. Masonic hall was found
inadequate to accommodate the throng ,
there being one hundred and eighty-
five persons present. There were sev
enty couples in costume , presenting a
picture as novel as it was pleasant.
The floor managers were Messrs.
Frank Hill , Wm. J. Whitehouse , M.
Smith , Chas. Ogburn , and Wm. Oa-
borne , and they acquitted themselves
In a manner worthy the occasion.
Steinhauser furnished the music , and
supper was given in the restaurant

Quite a large number of ladies and
gentlemen met at the residence of Col.
Wilbur on Seventeenth street recently
to witnees the production of the oper
etta , "Retribution , " by an amateur

ly dramatic in its plot , was written by
Miss Fannls E. Wilson , the airs were

able to her genius. The ladies and
gentlemen taking part were Misses *
