hard as In the Methodist church, and
no church with a congregational form
of government that allows women so
little power. Probably there Is no dan
ger of their rebellion because .of con
tinued oppression, but desertion would
bring the conference to terms. There
is something the matter. It may with
the principle that bases representa
tion on taxation. If It apply to only one
half of the race lt is no principle, but
a fad that time will wear out. Anyway
the Methodists ought to be quiet here
after about ;the assumed privileges of
women hi "a Christian land."
The New York Dramatic Mirror of
last week has a picture of a proscenium
curtain painted by Gates and Morange,
for a theatre in Springfield, Mass. The
reproduction Is in black and white, of
course, but even If the color Is not on a
level with the compomtlon It can not
but be beautlful.The subject is revellers
leaving a masque ball. A group of ladles
are descending the conventional pros
cenium steps to the carriages below.
Over their heads is a canopy as graceful
and effective as those carried In a
Greek procession, where the votive of
fering is protected by just such an
"awning. The carriages wind through
lovely grounds and disappear through
a gate upheld by massive posts. No
words can reproduce the movement,
vibration, gaiety of the curtain. And
again the composition is excellent. It
is surrounded by cupids and lovely
forms long since called by the theatrical
painter Melpomene and Thalia. "These
panels are treated In a quiet terra cotta
monochrome, and the top panel in soft,
warm yellows, In this manner avoiding
any conflict with the picture." With
such a curtain as this before their eyes
an audience will not have that gone,
desolate feeling when the curtain comes
down, even upon the finest actors and
the most seductive play. Any delays at
the beginning or In the course of the
play can be easily endured when the
audience has forms so lovely to gaze at.
The artists are Gates and Morange.
The .names are repeated so that If hap
pily there be a capitalist In Nebraska
who thinks of building a theatre or of
ordering a new curtain, perchance he
may see it, and our sun-dazzled eyes be
rested and bathed in beauty when vie
make a holiday and go to the theatre.
The curtain will go up for the first time
on the all-star caste of "The Rivals."

It? Well, I guess yes. There are exact
ly fourteen men In Lincoln who are now
living with their second wives who have
never paid me for their first wife's cof
tln. If you don't believe what I say I
will show you the names on my looks.
Why, day before yesterday. In walking
from my place of business to the post
office I passed four men, each now pro
vided with a second wife who have on
many occasions given me the icy face
and disappointing negative when I
have gentlv Intimated that It would be
fit and pro er to pay for the funeral ex
penses of wife No. 1.
"I am opposed to second marriages be
cause when a man who owes me for the
expenses Incidental to the departure of
the first partner takes another I know
I am almost certain never to get my
money. I always feel that there Is some
hope so long as my man remains sin
gle. "Yes, there are some exceptions. A
few weeks ago a man, he was a Ger
man, rushed Into my place and demand
ed his bill. I had burled his wife not a
great while before, but up to this time
he had shown a passive, far away air
every time I suggested liquidation.
Now he was promptness Itself. After
he paid the money he Inquired so
llcltlously If that squared everything.
I told him It did, and out of gratitude
was just on the point of showing him
some novelties In coffin specialties I
had Just received when he asked me to
go with him. I went, and we proceeded
down town to the store of a friend of
his, and there In the back end was a
minister and a lady who was waiting
to be made my patron's bride. He
wanted me to act as a witness to his
marriage. It was a little out of my
line, but I will do anything to oblige a
friend. An undertaker's life Is a very

For County Treasurer
Men who would be county treas

have to be met at the special county
convention and then hesitate about an
nouncing their candidacy. There will
be only one nomination to be made at
this convention and consequently there
can be no trading. It Is feared that the
most potent argument before the con
vention will be the financial argument.
Politicians assert that the nomination

can serve only three years and owing to
