Dear Penelope: The other day Jack
received a dozen neglige shirts from
New York. He said he was glad the
neglige season was at hand, and he se
lected the prettiest shirt In the lot and
when I saw him with It on Monday he
said he had put oft society for the sum
mer, and for three or four months would
keep to hfs roll collar and tan shoes.
About two hours later he Invited me to
go to the german at the Lincoln hotel
that night. I went, and Jack didn't
wear a roll collar or tan shoes. If half
of what he said to me was true he
had a good time, too.
The german was arranged for by
three or four ladies, and not by Mr. and
Mrs. Beeson, as I said last week. I
think the idea was to show some at
tention to the visiting ladies, of whom
there are a considerable number in the
city. There's Mrs. Valentine, of Sioux
City, and Miss Huston of Michigan, I
think, who are Mrs. F. W. Brown's
guests, a'nd Miss Rlnehart, who is at
Mr. and Mrs. George Woods'. Miss
Mae Mount of Omaha was here as Miss
Maud Oakley's guest, but returned
Tuesday. Miss Mount will visit Lin
coln again later, when she will be Mrs-.
Lew Marshall's guest. Then there is
Mrs. Oliver Pierce of Lafayette, Ind.,
who is remembered by many of the
-Lincoln young people as Katie Miller.
She Is making her first visit In Lin
coln after an absence of three years.
She is visiting her sister, Mrs. R. J.
Greene, and will be here a week or two
longer. Mrs. Henry Branch is here, the
guest of Mrs. C. "W. Branch. Mrs. D. E.
Thompson Is entertaining Miss Hud
son of Cairo. All of these ladles were
at the german. It was a very pretty
party. Captain Giulfoyle led. The
captain is a good leader. He treats ev
erybody alike and is sweet tempered.
Moreover he is ingenious. He Intro
duced a number of new figures. By the
way, one of the girls told me that
Frank Zehrung told her he met Cap
tain Guilfoyle for the first time that
evening and then he had to Introduce
himself. Imagine that! Shades of
Ward McAllister and Berry Wall!
Things have come to a pretty pass, in
deed, when Frank Zehrung neglects
for six whole months to make the ac
quaintance of so Important a person as
Captain Giulfoyle. I am afraid our
Impressario Is not so careful of his so
sial duties as he used to be.
Almost everybody was at the german.
To be more definite: Messrs. and Mes
dames A. G. Beeson, W. B. Hargreaves.
F. W. Brown, C. L. Ladd, C. L. Burr,
W. M. Leonard, W. B. Ogden, R. J.
Greene, D. E. Thompson, Carl Funke;
Misses Bertie Clark. Olive Latta. Grace
Oakley, Maud Oakley, Henrietta Hol
lowbush, Mae Marshall, Mae Moore,
Mae Burr, Lucy Griffith, Alice Slaugh
ter; Messrs. John Dixon, Frank Zeh
rung. C. E. Spahr, W. Morton Smith,
T. L. Lyon, Sam Low, D. G. Wing,
John Mallalieu, Mattson Baldwin, Ray
Welch and a number of others. The
favors were pretty but not striking.
To my mind one of the very prettiest
dances this season was the senior
promenade at the capitol Friday even
ing of last week. How these university
functions have improved in the last
three or four years! Jack says that
formerly the town awed the gown, but
that now since the university has so
many students of the class of which
John Dixon is leader, the town Is in
danger of being compelled to take les
sons of the gown. Anyway, that part
of the "student body" that goes in for
society does Its work well. There were
a great many pretty girls at this dance
and most of them students, too.
Jack knew most of them, but I didn't.
But I knew the men, and some of them
are mighty nice fellows. The contin
gent from the city was not very large,
but I noticed Miss Marshall, Miss
Moore, Miss Maud Oakley, Miss Bertie
Clark, Miss Grace Oakley; Messrs. Joe
Mason, Joe Mallalieu, Tom Wing, Har
ry Lansing, Mr. and Mrs. M. L Aitken
"and others."
Harry Krug has come back to Lin
coln, after nearly a year's absence, and
he says he Is going to stay. I don't
know whether you remember him. He
was a prominent merchant and at one
time he affected society. Mr. Faucon
will not make his departure from Lin
coln until about the middle of the
month. I am very sorry to hear that
Dr. Spahr Is to leave Lincoln in a few
days. He has disposed, or Is about
to dispose of his practice and for family
reasons will go back to his native
place, York, Penn. Dr. Spahr came
here about seven years ago, and I un
derstand he achieved a very consider
able success as a specialist. He is an
enthusiast in his chosen field and has
devoted himself to his profession so as
siduously that his reputation as an
oculist and his practice extend beyond
the state's borders. The doctor was
not a pronounced devotee of society,
but he is popular and has many warm
friends among our "best people." It's
too bad to see such men as Mr. Faucon
and Dr. Spahr leaving Lincoln.
Mrs. D. E. Thompson, Miss Hudson
and Miss Mae Burr spent Thursday in
The flower mission was organized
Thursday. I don't remember all of the
officers. Mrs. Lew Marshall was
elected president and Miss Maud Oak
ley was made flower collector. The
girls distribute flowers every Thurs
day, I think It is.
Miss Ura Kelley is coming down
from Omaha tomorrow for a couple of
weeks' visit. She will stay at the
Houtz's. Mrs. Nance came home this
week. Miss Bernlce Becker enter
tained a few friends Wednesday even
ing. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. McDonald
are getting ready to go to the seashore.
Ray Welch has engaged passage for
his trip abroad. Mr. and Mrs. H. E.
Mitchell have rented a cottage at Six
teenth and Vine.
Do you have soda water "openings" In
Omaha? Well, they are a great insti
tution here. I believe a good many of
the girls are in league with the propri
etors. Whenever there Is an "open
ing" they flock down town, and if a
young man joins them the party some
how steers itself into the store where
they are selling soda water and Ice
cream with a music and flower attach
ment. I had occasion to be in Ode
Rector's store several times Tuesday
when he had his opening, and I was
amused to see the same girls, with dif
ferent men of course, appear two or
three times. The1 girls listened to the
music, drank the soda and accepted
the flowers as if the whole thing was
a novelty. And Mr. Rector Insisted
that there was no conspiracy.
Miss Maud Oakley entertained a few
friends Saturday evening. Those pres
ent were: Lieutenants Hines and Wells
of Fort Omaha; Misses Olive Latta,
Marie Marshall, Mae Moore; Messrs.
Mallalieu, Baldwin, Mason and Hurl
but. The cadets went to Beatrice on
Wednesday for their annual encamp
ment. With their guns on their shoul
ders and the paving in their eyes they
marched to the depot with the wind
playing forty knots an hour and the
band only four. If It does not rain
hard while they are in camp they will
enjoy it. A wet camp and wet soldiers
cannot be be very happy.
Miss Helen Harwood sails in three
weeks for Europe. She will travel
about this summer with a party from
Boston and spend next winter In Paris.
Professor and Mrs. Allen are going
abroad, the professor having resigned
his chair at the university. Mrs, Case
beer entertained for Mrs. Allen Mon
day and Mrs. N. C. Abbott gave a re
ception Saturday afternoon.
Mrs. G. L Meissner gave a Kensing
ton Tuesday afternoon to the friends
of Mrs. Allen.
Many will be sorry to say farewell
to Professor and Mrs. Allen. They
came here as strangers in a strange
land and they got to a country a longer
distance from Early English than we
from the scalping-knife, but we know
enough to like nice people and to be
sorry for ourselves when they go don't
