Dear Penelope: I think after this I
will write to you instead of to S. She
has been away from Lincoln so long she
is losing interest in Jack and in me.
me Eleanor! I know that you have a
fellow feeling for me because we are
in the same little boat and the waves
that hiss and sputter at you threaten
to drown me in oblivion also. I wonder
why The Excelsior does not like your
work. That paper Is so eagerly read
and pounced upon by Omaha people, the
remarks about the Courier's enterprise
could not have been prompted by Jeal
ousy. Mr. Chase's paper is edited with
so much ability, vivacity and intelli
gence that it has made an enviable rep
utation for him among Omaha news
paper man. They refer to him in such
reverent terms and to think he is so
young, too. It only shows what a uni
versity education can do when pasted
on to native acumen.
Mr. Robert Patrick accompanied his
mother, Mrs. Patrick; to Lincoln on
Monday. They were guests of Mr. and
Mrs. G. M. Lambertson. On Saturday
evening Miss Grace Oakley entertained
a small party whose nucleus was a
chafing dish. The guests were Misses
Maude Oakley, Marie Marshall, Mame
Carson. Mr. and Mrs. Dorgan, Bobby
Joyce, C. P. A. Clough, and Harry Lan
sing. Tou know John Dorgan has ta
ken the management of Burlington
Beach. I think he will be as great a
success as an amusement caterer as
Frank Zehrung. Both of these men
were epicures on their own account be
fore they began to provide amusement,
for other people- Anyway, Mr. Dor
gan's friends are looking forward to
some good times at the Beach.
I saw very few young people at
Rhea on Wednesday night. I do not
believe you know any of them except
Hallie Hooper and May "Whiting. The
boxes were occupied by strangers ex
cept two, one of which contained Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Hall, and the other
Mrs. Funke and her two young sons.
Fritz Westermann Is wearing at
present a diminutive, but eventually
foreign looking goatee. He still affects
the red carnation. If he continues to
wear a red carnation for ten years
more I am sure people will begin to
know who he 1b.
The senior promenade tonight at the
capital Is the event of the year in uni
versity circles. I will tell you about it
Last Friday the Farwell party at the
Lansing was a real success. Every
body was in the mood, you know. Flo

Everybody was talking about the mu

welcome Miss Ruth Hudson of Cairo,
1U., this (Friday) afternoon. This
same young lady was expected some
months ago, at which time I heard
Mrs. Thompson say that Miss Hud
son was one of the most charming
girls she ever knew. Mrs. Thompson
cannot be accused of gushing and
when I heard her say that I decided
that Miss Hudson must be remarkable.
Mrs. John Dorgan expects a young
lady from Denveh to visit her soon.
Lincoln is said to be the Mecca of
girls with the visiting habit. They
are dined, driven and surfeited with
all forms of amusements. But the
young men In their hospitable efforts
never neglects the home girls. In
some places the young men lose their
heads if a new girl arrives.
The flower mission girls keep up
their regular visitations. Last Thurs
day some of them called at a house in
the bottoms where they found an old

glad; now I can make some bread."
The girls were quite affected and
they decided to buy him a box of

And Mrs. Abel's classes are growing
every day. She claims to teach a
stroke that tires the swimmers no
more than walking does. Her pupils
who have acquired it seem to go
through the water with a wiggle and
a flirt, nor to mind much whether the
head is out of the water or under It.
Miss Elliott continues to be the best

Guy Hurlbut took his fourteen pair
of creased trousers to Beatrice last

very marked impression on the quiet
people of Beatrice. He is certainly a
good advertisement. Mr. Hurlbut in

atrice Instead. What a commotion he
would cause down there, among the
Chautauqua beaux and belles!
