The heat and the dust of the last week
cre not Hulllrlently Intolerable' to prevent
i real vigorous movement of society lu the
imart eel. Life around the upper crust has
: ccn wonderfully quickened by the events
jlurlng ihe days lhat ushered In the first of
ho autumnal months. Ilctvvccn prepare-
Ions for the Court Carnival nnd for the
Aclcomo homo dinner to the gallant soldiers
) f the Second Nebraska regiment , every ono
las had something to do during the vvxck
ind ennui became nn unknown quantity.
Despite obstacle" ? that nt ono time seemed
nsurmotintnble , the Court Carnival was n
luccess. There was u generous turnout of
( oclcty folk and thrro wcro others. The fear
of some of the most prudent parents that
wild scenes of rovclry might disturb the
lorcnlty of the occnslon proved to be ground-
ess and n larger representation of so-
: lety U assured on the repetition of the
iffair. It Is to bo hoped for the beauly
" > t Iho passing show lhat nil of the mas-
iqueradcrs will agree to remain In line until
the procession Is completed next time. H
has been suggested that the dignity of the
Affair was lowered by the request of the
management for n half rate nt the ndmls-
'Jlon gate. If the second Court Carnival is
to bo n ical bwcll affair , perhaps It might
too wise to let the full tariff for admission
remain In force.
The Omaha girl never showed lo boiler
ulvuntnso than during the last week when
) ho rru bore nnd there nbout town col
lecting good things for the soldier boys
to eat on their return from the south. The
sight nt the fort yesterday afternoon , vvhen
n bevy of the young women waited on the
volunteers , was n pretty one It would be
j snylng a gicnt deal lo remark lhat the girls
teemed to get as much enjoyment out of
' the occasion ns did the soldiers out of their
, ' , dinner , but such appeared to be Iho cane
4 At nny rate , most of the glrlw decided they
would co out lo Ihe fort real often this
week nnd take fresh flow era to the sick
boys every time.
The corps of life saving guaids of the
government now stationed at the exposition
nro not the cmly life savers around Iho
lagoon. The other evening n party of
young folks were out In one of the electric
Immchcs. Something nbout one of the
valves went wrong , nnd the engineer had
nothing at hand that would do to open It.
The llttlu craft became hclplrss and drifted
nround In some danger. Ho nskcd for a
match or n toothpick , but not a man lu
the crowd could produce. Then the en
gineer begged for n penknife , but the men
were uhy on cutlery Despair had almost
made the engineer give up. when n voung
woman suggested that a halipln might do.
The engineer snld he would tiy one. Tlrst
n comb hnlrpln was used \\lth no good le-
Hiilts , but the vv-iro hnlrpln proved lo ho
the very thing nreded The party was saved
' nnd shown that hairpins are good for some
thing clso besides cxtracltng olives from
/ long-necked bottle's

The elegant reception and dance tendered
the cntei talnnunt bureau of the exposition
mid friends by Major nnd Mrs Hamilton at
the Illinois building on I'rlday night at the
conclusion of the masked carnival , was ono
of the lending i vents of the week.
Stately palms were artistically grouped
tlirouchout the halls and parlors. Iced
champagne and frozen Homan punch wore
BCIveil from llovver-wrcathed bowls In the
leceptlon hall. The orchestra was sta
tioned lu the east gallery
As seen fiotn the gallery the dancers
made a fantastic and pleasing scene. Many
wcro still habited In the costumes In which
they had participated In the carnival. There
really \\t\u \ not much dancing , but the inv -
v Itlng seats on the spacious porches drew
many of thu young folks out of doors to
enjoy the moonlight and other old things
