The committee of ladies, Mesdames
Fuller. Hurlbut, Hozie, Waldo, Ew
ing, Rudge and Miss Cowdery, trans
formed the basement of the church
into a drawing room. Mr. Rudge fur
nished them with lace curtains, orien
tal rugs and rattan furniture so that
even the Sunday school did not know
the place. Mtos Branson and Mrs.
Wade, assisted by several young
ladies, served ice.
I feel more interested in the Episco
pal church than any other since I
bard Jack say that when he settles
down that is the church he thinks his
family will wish to attend. As for me
I like one as well as another. The
new rector says that there are more
pretty girls in that church than any
other. Jack to growing more serious
minded lately. He has had several
very solemn talks with me on the
porch. He says he hates that electric
light in front of the house. Mama
has always told me when I got mar
ried she would buy my furniture, so
yesterday when I was passing Rudge
St Morris' store I went in. I should
like to furnish my rooms in rattan
furniture. Mama says I can have any"
kind I want within a certain sum. I
am going fo get the cheaper kinds of
furniture, not to look at, but con
fidentially. Then three-fourths of the
money I shall spend on rugs. Mr.
Rudge has some beauties. A real
oriental nig will last forever Ameri
ca forever and Imparts more dis
tinction than any amount of varnish.
Jack tries to dissuade me from going
to parties. He says he likes to sit out
on the porch In spite of that old light.
I like parties though.

Joyce and Morrison's enterprise.

SEWARD, Neb., May 26. (Special

years, and no scarcity of politics. Sew

think favorably of C. E. Adams as a

HINTS TO TOURISTS.
WHERE TO GO AND WHAT

lished by the North-Western line, giv
ing a large amount of information re
garding the lake regions of Minnesota
and Wisconsin. For copy address City
Ticket Agent, 117 South Tenth street,
Friday. May 39.
John Drew, with a stronger company
than usual and his support has al
ways been the very best that Charles
Frohman could secure will appear at
the Lansing theatre Monday, June 1.
Mr. Drew comes direct from New York,
where he played the entire theatrical
season through, being opened at the
Empire theatre there early last Sep
tember, and closed at the Garrick thea
tre recently. In all he was before the
New York public about thirty weeks,
and every one of these weeks found
him playing to the capacity of the thea
tre in which he happened to be appear
ing, for during the time he played In
three theatres in all. There is no other
star who could have achieved such a
New York season. Mr. Drew encoun
tered every novelty that visited or was
originated in the eastern metropolis,
and was not only not affected by their
opposition, but far and away survived,
them all. During his stay he made two
comedy successes, and these are the
plays in which he will be seen during
hte western tour.
Miss Maud Adams, who has been Mr.
Drew's leading lady during the four
years in which he has been Charles
Frohman's star, still holds that re
sponsible position. The other mem
bers of the organization are Annie
Irish, Gladys Wallace. Ethel Barry
more, Annie Adams, Harry Harwood,
Arthur Byron, Lewis Baker, Leslie Al
len. Herbert Ayellng and Frank Lamb.
