that a largo contribution u made by

In only necessary . to call attention to the
fact that President Buckley Is the presi

Boulevard for All tka' People.
OMAHA, May 17. To the Editor of The
Bee: It is very gratifying to notice that
the work of boulevard building is being ao
rupldly pushed. The new driveway that is
to cross Cuming street Is well under way
and when finished will be another of the
many great . boons to the possessors of
teams and the motorist. It reflects credit
on those who promoted such means of
recreation in this western country. Driving
is really one of the chief pleasures. "But
the less fortunate ones," not able to use
vehicles owing to Insufficient Incomes, must
walk. Would they not appreciate the
boulevard, too, were it made into a
veritable boulevard that Is, a roadway
skirted on each side by trees, thus mak
ing a promenade under shad of verdure
enjoyable for them?
It would not be long after planting of
trees ere these groves would be the pleas
ure and boast of our city. What is grander,
more beautiful and restful to the mind
and eye thaa nice shaded walks? We have
admired pictures In your paper of lust suoh
scenes, and those who have traveled abroad
have recollections of the exquisitely cool
public highways with their stately trees,
and often In countries where the vegeta
tion needs much more coaxing than In this
fertile spot. I feci aure that you, through
your far-reaching paper, could advocate
plan by which subscriptions be raised and
trees be planted on this new roadway; In
fact, on many of our other fine driveways.
The gentlemen advocating the betterment
of this city and who have so generously
contributed means for enforcing the nec
essary laws to this end would, having their
less fortunate brothers' interests In view,
again add their names to a list for raising
funds In such a laudable' cause. Let the
outskirts of our splendid city be made
beautiful, as much so as . our merchants
In the downtown districts have done, by
their magnificent buildings and the elimi
nation of the unsightly poles on the street
curbs. A PEDESTRIAN.

Students of Shakespeare had a rare
treat last evening In a lecture given by
Rev. B. A. Blackmore at the Crelghton
university auditorium on the subject, "The
Temptations of Macbeth." The attendance
was fair and the lecture Scholarly. Father
Blackmore spoke from deep thought and
study on the subject In hand and added
to the effectiveness of his talk by reading
passages from the tragedy.
"In no other of his plays has the poet
so well held the mirror up to nature as in
'Macbeth.' and In no otrier character has
he so well given us a representation of the
universal type of man," stated the speaker.
"The character of Macbeth clearlsr Illus
trates the, fact that man shapes his own
destiny by his own free will and through
his various pasxlons. The character of
Macbeth becomes Interesting to us in being
a common mirror of human frailties. It
Is shown in the plsy that when man vio
lates those laws which work for his bet
terment a series of tragedies will follow.
In 'Macbeth' the hidden springs of the
human heart and mind are worked out in
true artistic style and the human will Is
held up as an object of energy In action.
Macbeth's Downward Coarse.
"Macbeth, naturally wild In imagination
and fancy, and to whom the dark riddles
of life are baffling. Is led on to his moral
doom and destruction by evil forces in
carnated in the witches and his wife. Lack
ing in courage to reject wrong, he yields
to Influences and fears for awhile, only
the physical consequences of a throne se
cured by his lawless ambitions. He faces
crime as a common enemy wtthout fear of
the life to come. The impassioned logic
and consummate Intellect of his wife In
duce him to trample his fears and his
murderous heart reudlly finds an affinity
in the witches, who lead him on and on
In his terrible"' course.
"Lady Macbeth's ambition Is one that
curbs all other feelings and Is without
scruples. The witches attacked Macbeth's
weakest point and round his ruling pas
sion. Macbeth Is disturbed by conflicting
thoughts and easily Inspired by the evil
witches, although he does not realize his
position at the time. Macbeth's head Is
turned by the prophetic greetings of the
sisters. On the contrary, Bnnquo turns the
darts of the evil ones with his righteous
nature and Is full proof against them.
Wife Makes Him Trouble.
"Lady Macbeth well knew when to apply
the goad to her husband. She makes Mac
beth believe he can commit the crime and
escape the Ignominy. After the murder
Macbeth becomes susceptible to the pangs
of remorse; his soul Is darkened with hor
ror and he Is haunted with fears. Just
when he begins to realise he has been
fooled, he again listens to the evil ones,
who tell him that none of woman born
shall harm him, and finally consents to
combat with MacDuff.
"We all know theoretically, as Macbeth
knew, the results pf sin, but when tempted
we do not stop to think we will suffer the
consequences as others have suffered. In
Macbeth's life Is depicted the lesson of
great ambition realised by unhallowed

Says Jarfare Reese.
Judge John Reese, receiver of the land
(flee at Broken Bow, was In Omaha Thurs
day, summoned as a witness before the
federal grand Jury In some of the land
fencing and fraudulent land filing cases.
I do not subscribe to the doctrine that
the public land In the cattle country com
prises a series of barren sand hills, as la
so often asserted by the cattlemen and
others who desire to monopolise the lands
for their private use," said he. "As a mat
ter of fact, more filings were made on
these lands In our district during the
month of April Just passed than in any
one month for several years. These fil
ings are usually made under the Kinkald
act for whole sections by bona fide set
tlers. It hss been discovered In reoent
years that seeding these lands down to
brome grass has had a beneficial effect.
A fine sod is now appearing all through
"For actual agricultural purposes there
are doubtless many drawbacks, but tor
grazing purposes, even for small cattle
raisers, they are excellent. Water can
be found In abundancs In any of the val
leys at from to to 100 feet, and on the
high lands they seldom have to go depeer
than 300 feet. With the Introduction of
brome grass, and the facility of obtaining
water at easy depths, the future of the
sand hill country Is settled. Instead of
the cattle business being ruined by the
land Investigations and consequent restor
ation of the public domain to actual set
tiers, I take it that the cattle business is
on the eve of its greatest and continued

quest ,that he come to a certain office for

And that was all he said.
The art department of the Omaha
club met for reorganization Thursday' morn
ing in the club rooms, ten members sign
ing for future membership. The threatening
morning and some misunderstanding re
garding the time of meeting deterred many
women from attending, and the membership
promises to greatly exceed that number
when the department convenes in the fall.
Mrs. William Grigor was elected leader,
Mrs. C. S. Montgomery secretary, Mrs.
W. H. Hancock treasurer and Mrs. W. C.
Sunderland representative on the directory.
It was decided to continue the meetings
every other Thursday morning of the
week, alternating with the general meeting
of the club. This will also niake the
department alternate with the meeting of
the Society of Fine Arts, and as' the mem
bership of the two organizations are largely
identical, that they might supplement each
other it was decided thav department
would take up the rtudy of the same period
as the Fine Arts society, ' "Itcr Italian
Art." The department will make more of
a study of the biography and history of the
painters of that period while the Society
of Fine Arts is studying the paintings. By
this arrangement the club and its members
will suffer nothing by the organization of
the new art society, while the art Interests
of the city will have gained, a material and

Mrs. George Tllden. Mrs. J. P. Bailey and

Mrs. G. W. Garloch; reception, Mrs. G. W.

Bible study, Mrs. F. P. Loomls. The
officers chosen are especially gratifying to
those fumillur with the ability of the women
elected and new board and officers promise
to be one of the most efficient that has
served the association. It has been decided
to continue the soliciting for funds for
the new association building, but the active
campaign will not be resumed as conducted
before. The building is assured, as about
$80,000 has been subscribed and several
other substantial additions are in sight.
No definite time Is considered for beginning
work on the building, but every effort will
be made to secure the necessary funds at
the earliest possible time.
Among the reports scheduled to come
before the annual business meeting of
the Woman's club Monday afternoon is
one from a committee from the social
science department which has recently
visited the city Jail. The women of Omaha
have long protested against the conditions
under which th'e women prisoners have
been confined in the city Jail, and while
recent remodeling there has bettered these
conditions somewhat, the wouten still feel
that there Is room for Improvement and an
effort will probably be made to arouse
public Interest In the matter. The need of
a night as well as a day matron Is another
matter In which the women are Interesting

"A Man of Mystery" at the Krua.
Here Is a play In which Sherlock Holmes
meets Raffles, Dr. Morlarty, the Biddlo

Ketch's calendar, and beats them out. Two
men of mystery, one the keenest of de

of criminals, are the central figures of the
pliiy. In which several sorts of villainy and
the old true kind of love figure. There Is
something of a comedy touch to the affair
and It Is all put together reasonably well.

a little more at home with American cut
