The Impel club has alrends opened the
season with a dance at Odd Kelhiws' hall , on

pobcd almost exclusively of Noith Omaha
people and ow < s much of its piostigo to Its

The members of the Ksmcialdn club pride
themselves on tlmlr informality and jollity at
their hops. Their career last season was a
brilliant one , nnd they intend to maintain
the high stamlaid they have set.
Among the new elubs orgnm/od is the
Olivette , which made Its debut a short time
klnce with a ball at Crap Hi os. ' hall. The
Crescent , another new organisation com
posed of young people Just commencing so
cial life , was held at the same place a short
time before.
In addition to the clubs named there are a
iiumbci ol othcis devoted to the art of Terp
sichore , mid the vai ions scciet orgnni/ations ,
trade's unions , etc , will furnish an endless
amount of entertainment as usual for loveis
of the dance.
Flowers For the Tea Table.
The extravagant and luxurious use of flow-
Brs Is one of the features of fashionable life
this season , so may be abundantly indulged
In for tea table decoration. It Is not necos-
nary that they bo of the most expensive vari
eties. Every bud and blossom is used , from
the homclv golden rjd and clover blossoms
to the Ksph itu S.inti orchidswhich so closely
resemble a Hock of white doves. A bunch
or sack of flowers tied with ribbons is placed
tit the plate of each guest , or n pretty idea is
to suspend over the table a colored umbrella ,
and tie upon the end of each rib the bouquets
of a gueit uorltcd with her name. The cards
arc uiioii tied to the backs of the chairs in
stead of being placed on the table. Tnei
mav contain onlj the name of the person ex
pected to occupy the chair , or they may be
painted and bear an appropriate quotation.
These are icad aloudas an intioductory sub
ject of conversation , nnd sometimes the same
quotation is used upon all the cards , the ob
ject being to name the author , and the sue
cesbfnl guesber is awarded u pure In tin
shape of a bouquet of loses.
Little sachet bars or bonbon boxes oftcr
accompany the cauls in place of the ( lowers ,
nnd In other instances the eaids ate in the
form of books with painted covets , and tlu
inside bearing the quotation , the date anil
the owner's name.

There was a ver.\ spirited discussion of the
old ( | U 'stion of the admission of saloon keep
ers.hich emlc'i ) in a \ iclori for the committee -
tee and the adoption of u clause leading as
"livery applicant for membership by initia
tlon must bo u white male , over 'Jl and under
M ) jeais ol age , of good moral chaiactcr ,
sound in health , fiee from mental or physical
mill unties , a believer in : i mipicmo

He must have been a resident of the state
for six months preceeding the date of Ins up
plication and bo able to earn the means nec-
essaij for the support of himself and fam
ily. "
It was also provided that it should bo con
sidered a penal offense for any pel son to
become a saloonkeeper or bartender after
becoming a member of the order.
Another impoitant elwnge which was hotly
combattcd on both sides and finally passed ,
was icvision of the clause making it lawful
for tliogi and lodge to say that subordinate
lodges may ni.ilco the fee for the three degioct

The Saloon Keeper Question.
A prominent Pi thian says : "Tho
tlat of the grand lod'0 has gone forth. Saloon
kcepeis cannot enter the ranks of the
Knights of Pi thias. The esact text of the
article in the constitution us adopted at the
session of the giand lodge at Fiemont np
pears in the report of the proceedings above.
It is clear , explicit and unequivocal , all re-
poitstotho oontraiy notwithstanding. No
present member of the older In Nebraska
may become a saloon Keeper or bai tender
without lajinu' himself liable to expulsion
fiom its ranks. The considerations whicl
actuated those of us who favored the amend
mcnt weie sullciont ] for the t'rand lodge um'
need no repitition It miist not be supposes
however that this law is to bo in any sense
ictroactive. Those now in the order will re
man. unaffected in any paiticular and no
fault is found with their ' character' so
far as 1 Know
"Tho Encampment also passed some vori
stringent rules on this saloon question which
cannot fail to have un elevating effect on the
inoial and social tone of the order. Knights
are strictly forbidden , for instance , to enter
the doom of any saloon , gambling house or
other [ "laces " of disrepute while \\rarmganj
portion of their uniform. This may tlnil some
kickers but no reasonable man will doub
that it will prove of ultimate nnd immediate
benelit to the order. You must not imagine
that this is a necessity just now it is merely
"That article in the Herald , by the way
was all wiong and jou cannot make your
contradiction too stiong. "

Dr. I'ohlnmn , in an addro-s before the
Soeict.v of Natural hcienees of Huthilo
on "Kocent t'hnngeh in the Falls ot
Niagara , " said , as reported in the
Courier :
"Tho Ih'st scientific survey of the
Falls was made in 1M : ! bv 1'r'of. .Iiunea
Hall , the state geologist of New York ,
and all our e.xact knowledge dates fiom
His mas. ) I'rof. Hall gives the height
of the American fall as 107 feet , and ol
the Horseshoe fail at IfjS foci , counting
the elevations from the water's edge on
October I , ISIU , and he admUs that this
itnrling point can vary from I to UO foot
with the rise and fall of the water in
in the river below the falls' , width ol
American falls , (100 ( , and llorseshoo ,
1MK ) feet. The Lakesurvoj went
over the ground again in lK7A'nnd in
the-e thirty-tineo xesirs the south *
orninost point of tlio llorseshoo fall hail
receded IlitJ feet , while in the brink of
the American fall dilleienees of 10 feet
weie nppntcMit. When the American
Association for the Advaiiceinent ol
Science met heio in ISSli the section of
geology decided to nuiKoiagaiatho
problem of the session , and for that pur
pose I'rof. Woodward of Washington
and HUIIO of his assistants surveyed the
brink of the falls again. He found an
average recession for the whole face ol
the falls of about lij feet per annum , but
as the part of the curve , vvlioro
the water is deepest , retreated faster
than the edges , for at the bouthernmost
point of the Horboshoe fall it was found
that it had traveled south 127o feet since
1S7C , or iy > feet since 1812 , or about 9
feet every year. In view of biieli rapid
changes it seems highly probable that
the older pictures of the falls , which
always place the Horseshoe fall consid
erably neaicr than wo Ilnd it to-dayaro
practically correct. If the rate of ro
ttocossion remains during the next /iOO /
years as it has been for the past forty-
live v ears tlio inner edge of the Horse
shoe fall will have passed to the west of
Goat island , and as the line of deepest
water is near the Canadian shore , all
the waters of the river will pass over
the llorseshoo fall , obliterating tha
American fall entirely and transform,1
ing Goat island into a peninsula. i
"Tho fall \v ill then perhaps bo higher p
than to-day , because the present descent -
of lifty feet over the rapids will then
bu added to the height of the calm act
minus the number of feet necessary to
give the accessory current to the r'ivor
below , which at picsent is fifteen feet to
the mile. At that rate it will need
about live miles before the Niagara
shale , which now occupies the lower
half of the face of the fall , is under
water , and the rotiocession by means ol
undermining is stopped , Then 'tho
changes will be accomplished simply by ' yl
the eroding power of tlio water and the \ ( _
falls will remain near the foot of Grand
Island for u practically unlimited timo.
The hope of dually having the Falls of ,
Niagara at Huflalo must bo abandoned , '
for from the foot of Grand Island to the
citv only rapids can exist , never a fall , { _ "
on account of the'rmturo of tlio under * >
lying rock , which is soft. ! *
"As the retrocession of the falls of '
Niagara i oinmeiiced in what wo may )
call geologically the most recent period ,
the time noccsyiry for it to arrive at ita , i
wusent site ban had a very important
bearing upon the question of the ago of j
man on the American continent. As ,
long as it was considered necessary to
claim several hundred thousand jears
for the ago of Niagara alone , the ago ol
human race had to be computed at per
haps iUO,000 voaio ; no matter how Httlo
such high liguro agreed with other dis-
cov cries , tins rocky gorge of the Niagara
always presented an insurmountable ob
stacle against any reduction of timo.
Hut since we have discovered that after
all the work of excavation could have
been done in perhaps three thousand or
four thousand years , our computation of k ,
the ago of the human race has settled i
down to reasonable llgures , which give
o the beds in which the oldest human h
mplements have boon found an age of if ,
perhaps forty to sixty thousand years , ( ,
antniopologists chum that all the facta ,
collected so far agree well with the hitter - ' .
tor liguro. /
"Future surveys of the falls at per
haps every ten years will help to settle
delinitoly this very important question ,
for we are all more or loss interested in '
the history of the human race , and as
far as wo know to-day the falls ol
Niagara repiesont the most reliable i
measure of time on the face ot the
globe , "
