Q. M. W.
i The lady who wrote tho above letter
is the mother of three interesting chil
dren whom she is "bringing up with a
sense of the dignity and supreme im
portance of the trust imposed upon her.
Such a column would bo of interest to
all readers of The Codkiek. The only
trouble is that there is no one on the
staff capable of furnishing advice to
mothers. However, in next week's
Courier there will be a mother's confer
ence column which will bo kept open
for contributions consisting of questions
concerning the rearing of children and
its problems interspersed with bright
sayings from the problems themselves.
I know of no better editor for the space
than the writer of the above -letter.
Plattsmouth, Neb., Nov. 30.
The Woman's club held an open meet
ing at Mrs. H. N. Dovey's November 26,
to which each member was permitted to
bring one guest, and despite the inclem
ent weather a large crowd was present.
It was English literature night, Mrs.
The meeting was opened by a piano
solo, Miss Elson. A motion prevailed to
suspend regular business. Tho presi
dent, Mrs. Stoutenborough, welcomed
all in a very bright speech, in which she
strongly implied to tb.2 gentlemen
present, that they are favored to live in
this day of woman's club. When the
erstwhile vain, fretful, peevish, spoiled
beauty has evoluted into the brainy,
helpful, hopeful, Christian woman.
Mrs. Clark followed with a poetical
address of welcome to the gentlemen.
Mrs. Straight read an essay on
Shakespeare, and to the mild surprise
of her hearers, she praised William for
domestic virtues with which some of
his biographers, at least, have not ac
credited him. But those biographers, I
believe, were men.
'The Modern Drama," by Mrs. Davis,
followed. Mrs. Waugh talked of the
novel in Shakespeare's time.
Mrs. Snyder read an extract on
Shikespeare's chivalry. Miss Elson
again favored the company with a solo,
after which the lights were lowered and
a creepy sensation disturbed your corre
spondent. In the dimness Mrs. Travis
gave a very clever parody on "To Be or
Not to Bo," etc.; ."To Club or Not co
Club." She wandered on and on in her
soliloquy, and as she apostrophized The
Ghost, Juliet, Ophelia, Macbeth, etc.,
silently entered and ranged themselves
in a semi-circle about her. The last to
appear was the two -'Merry Wives," who
looked very merry indeed. It was most
unique and entertaining.
Tho brillanco of the electric lights was
again restored and a sociable half hour
ensued. Light refreshments were served.
Mr. C. S. Polk, in an impromptu
speech, reviewed the work of the
Woman's club from a bichelor's stand
point, and thanked the ladies for their
hospitality. Mr. Dunroy of Lincoln was
among tho guests. R.

The best minstrel performance that
has been in Nashville this season was
given at the Grand Opera house last
night by the Beach & Bowers' combina
tion before a full house. From the time
the curtain went up until the perform
ance was over the house was in a con
tinual round of applause. The songs
were all new and well rendered Bobby
Bmch.'in hissoDg, took the house by
torm. The contortionist is the bent
that has come this way for some time.
The drill was presented in an artistic
manner by well known artists.led by tho
inimitable Bobby Beach, and introduc

that body. Tho conclusion was a grand
extravaganza entitled, "Aunt Hannah's
Christening," introducing the mysteri
ous cottage, which ?as very amusing.
