one of them being u Moorish curtain , hand-
madn In thu harems of Turkey. It Is all
wrought In gold thread on u silk groundwork.

booth to add to tlio beauty of the scene. The
steps on which the statues stood
were covered with Uoinuti stripes
and leopard skint. Thcro was

booth , and the ill-starred young men who
paused to admlro the noblest Homan of them

Hess who impersonated the character of a
Highland dancer.
The cottage was constructed after the
llighland style , was trimmed up with ivy
and hud a thatched roof. The effect was
made more realistic by an actual hen and
chickens in n coop outside , and by the herr
ings hanging up to dry. A peep inside
showed the interior very cozy and home

Up stairs in the art department , to make it
more attractive , the tableaux hud been
changed and the different scones were greeted
with vociferous applause by the many who
had paid the extra ten cents to witness them.
The American Hooth win re the light re
freshments were served also aid an excellent
business , while the numerous pretty young
ladies who had charge of the "Candy Uooth"
were loud in their praises of the attention
that had been paid to their department by
the numerous youngg.illantrios who disliked
the idea of passing it without contributing
their share.
At all the other pretty booths there was
not ono that had cause to complain , for ample
was the patronage that was bestowed upon
them by their admirers , suflicicnt to
warrant the sentiments of one who remarked
that It is both "business and pleasure" to
voice them nil.
During the evening pretty dances were in
troduced which attracted the attention of all ,
as Hid also the odd and quaint costumes
which bedecked bcvys of younir ladies as
they promenaded around the building.

On Wednesday last at S o'clock a large nnd
appreciative audience assembled in the
Creigliton college hall to witness a public
specimen of the class work , given by the
students of the lowest Latin class. As an
nounced in the programme , any ono in the
hall was free to question the class upon the
matter there laid down , it being the matter
passed over in the last three months. The
routine of questioning was relieved by a
goodly number of declamations , composi
tions and songs. Tlio class consisted of about
thirty boys , varying in ages from ten to four
teen years ; the polished appearance , the
spruceness of attire , and the radiant coun
tenance of each little gentleman , as ho filed
on the stage from a side door , was the gen
eral index by which tlio friends in the aud
icni'e could pretty well judge beforehand the
character of the coming entertainment. A
prologue was given by Master Philip Mc-
Evoy , welcoming all there assembled , and in
a way introducing what was to follow. As
they awaited the volunteer questioning from
thu audience , the students began to examine
each other , the dialogue form being ob
served , while ono of tlieii-.own members oc
cupied the chair. These present who
had formerly believed that Latin and
catechism constituted the curriculum of
Crolghton college , If any such there woro.
hail iimplo opportunity to lay aside their
wrong impression. The questioning was not
on these branches ulono but also upon United
States history , geography Its various
branches , English analysis , spelling and do-
llning , memory exercises and arithmetic. It
was of a sprightly and interesting character.
as were the. answers , which were received
with applause. Among the pleading features
of the exercises were a composition "Tho
Value of u stocking , " by Fred Hall ; vocal
solo , "Only a Dream of Home , " by Dennis
O'Neill : violin solo , "Fifth Air Vurio-Ch ,
Dnnclu , " by Einil Hofmann ; declamation ,
"Tho Pauper's Death Hed , " bv Hurt Davis ;
tiiis last was an excellent rendition and was
heartily encored.
At the close , of the exorcises , President
Dowling m n few well timed remarks , kindly
thanked these present for Mio manifest ap
preciation and interest they exhibited in all
attairs concerning the college ; ho again cor
dially invited any one to interrogate the
members of the class which ho assured them
was open to publlo examination. No ono
responding hu proceeded to urge upon tlio
parents of boys the necessity of a thorough
classical education , such us Crelghton college -
lego endeavors to impart.

Tlio Imperial club , which Is exclusively a
a social organization of North Omaha young
people , gave their last party of the season at
Goodrich's ball , Sunders street , on Thursday
evening. The ladles nearly all were white
dresses , which always make pretty girls look
prettier and with their lloral ornaments they
looked truly like a "rosebud garden of girls. "
The music for the occasion was furnished by
violins and harps , a little different from the
usual orchestra music and was a delightful
change. Louis Littloflcld , the master of
ceremonies ' , led in the grand march , being
as'sistcd by Miss Nettie Aumuck. The party
was declared by all to bo the best of a suc
cessful series. The dancing programmes
were among the prettiest that
the society editor has seen this
season. Among these present were :

atmosphere then * was .a good uttendaneo of
the friends of the performers , and their ap

fact that nearly all the bololsts were recalled ,

A number of the Omaha Guards gave va
pleasant and informal hop at tlio armory
an Tuesday evening. The affair was almost
an impromptu one and was all the more de
lightful for so being. Tlio boys all were
their uniforms and tlio occasion was thereby
given a distinctively military appearance.
