My Dear Penelope: You say you are
getag away for a little while. I wish
I aright go with you, hut really Burl
ington beach and Lincoln park are
such superior places that I can for
swear the seashore with fairly good
grace. Not many young people have
left Lincoln for the summer yet, but
the exodus Is beginning, and I am
afraid a. good many will work the rail
roads or the banks and get away. Dr.

future, and Mr. Faueon said a per
manent good-bye to Lincoln "Wednes
day. He goes to Boston, where they
sake beans. Guy Hurlbut is having
thirteen large extension trunks made
and Just as soon as they are finished
he will pack his wardrobe and leave
far the summer. There Is said to be
a- ghi down In Massachusetts whose
faee will light up with a glad, sweet
ssaMe when Guy's trunks appear: Mr.
McCloud, who 'for the past year has
Been instructor la the English depart
ment m 'the state university, left for
the east this week. It is understood
that he will not return next year. The
remains ef the awath that he cut la
Lincoln society are still visible.
Charley Magoen told me the other
day that he would spend the summer

Jeting. I suggestted that he go to
Cuba and put down the Insurrection

Last Fourth of July society, or rath
er the younger element, was rent asun
der by two rival outings, one under the
direction of Messrs. Frank Burr, R. M.
1 Joyce et al., and the other headed by
Mattaon Baldwin. The feeling between
the projectors of these outings was not
so very pleasant, and there was a
'merry scramble to see which could
make the biggest showing. Between
the two the town was dragged, and
both parties were successes, especially
in attendance. This year there will.
In all probability, be a repetition of
the experiences 'Of a year ago. Ar
rangements are already being tmade
for two' outings at South Bend and
Meadowbrook by these two factions.
Next year guests will be booked for
the annual picnics as early as Janu

They say that the party given by the
Lincoln club at the beach tonight will
be the most elegant and lavish of all
the club parties of the winter. It will
probably be the close of a brilliant
season for this new club. Mr. Cook,
Mr. Green and Mr. Wilson, who In

truthfully say that there have been
no functions so elegant and exclusive
since Lincoln society drew its first
