Magazine, THE GOURIBR, and thoughts xe have simple, noble ways of following hi3 wishes and high leadership. Current events over the coffeo cups and adjourned to meet with Mrs. Stone braker, March '2. The Review and Art club of York met in the club room February 12. T le new Browning book with questions by Dr. Peterson of the State Univers'.ty was in evidence. It is absolutely necessary for the average person to have something like the above book to bring out the beauty and full value of Browning's writings. "Inductive Studies in Brown ing" by Hans 0. Peterson, covers this want so completely that one finds Brown ing a most delightful study. The poem under consideration was "How They Brought the Good News from Ghent to Aix." Roll cill was responded to with quotations from Carlyle. Miss Haggard begged to be excused from singing her solo on account of having the book re view. Mre. Mansfield read a paper on "American Women Artiste,' and out of her orn collection showed many fine copies of their work. She also had the biography of Edward Bellamy, who's book entitled "Equality," was reviewed by Miss Haggard. It is a highly amus ing production." The Review club tbioks of drawing up a set of resolutions re questing Edward Bellamy and Prof. Edison to join forces and bring about the delightful state of affairs portrayed in Equality instanter. On Friday afternoon the W. K. P. C. club met with Mrs. Violet, 1727 Z street. Roll call was responded to by quotations from Eugene Field. After a business meeting the program for the afternoon was given, the subject being Prince Bis marctc. Delicious refreshments were served by the hostess.

The club expects to give a Shake perean recital the first week in March. Miss Marion Treat of Lincoln, has been engaged to assist, and we believe it will bean unusually fine entertainment. The Weeping Water Zetetic club meet ing at Mra. Kennedy's last Saturday afternoon was a very interesting one. Although the reads were very muddy fifteen members responded to roll call. After a short hufiscss session the name of I rs. Lucy Teegarden was accepted as a member of the club. Mrs. Murtey read a paper on the "Folk Lore of Early Germany." Mrs. Margaret Sackett dis cussed French literature. The session ended with the review of "Kings in Ex ile' by Mrs. Hungate, and review of Middlemarch" by Mrs. Woodford. Pastry statistics show that Chicago each year devours 5,102,722 square feet of pie. A'eirs Item. The statement gives us pleasure, But its not quite complete; Is' this by standard measure, Or by Chicago feet? THE THEATRE Tbo fifth anuual minstrel show of the Lincoln Light Infantry packed the Oliver on Wednesday night with about all the people it will seat. Tho curtain rose to a ringing chorus, and showed the double half circle of singing mokes in while 6atin troustrettes and black satin troueerettcs and black coats and white collars six inches high. The interlocutor, Mr. E. J. Streight, was in blue satin, white lace, white wig and real cut glass diamonds. His grease paint was pink anr. white instead of black, and he looked like a whito dova among crows. Somebody, moved by his delicate beauty, threw him a large bouquet somewhat unusually composed of calla lilios, roses, carnation i and an assortment of garden fiowere, which the white man was too erabarrased or too ignorant of form to pick up. Frank Burr, an end man received a bouquet of lettuce leaves and a single glowing car nation which he very gracefully acknow ledged The end men were Frank Burr, Lute Morse, C. C. Hamilton and C. F. Avery as "bones;" T. M. Bromwell, C. E. Spacgler, C. S. Hojt and W. E. Clark as tamboe. The chorus was noticeably well train ed and of good volume and tone. C. E. Spangler's song Honey You's ma Lady Love, was dramatically deliverej, and his voice is very pleasing. Frank Burr's easy nonchalant singing and dancing is always delightful and hi did his part with his usual success. Lute Morso's ability to amuse was fully demonstrated by his Bongs and gags. W. K. Tuttle's rich voice was heard in the musical gem of the Light Infantry setting. The bal ancing tricks by Chas. Ramsdell were very clever indeed, and suggested more than a start in professionalism. The evening closed with balancing and tum bling by Wertz and Adair, professional acrobate. A remarkable feature of tho evening was the scenery which appeared in sec tions, suspended by ropes and gj rating mysteriously like will-o-tuo wisps. Some times it lit on the performer's head, some times on other things. It generally reached the floor and rested at all kicd3 of diverse angles. The effect was spec tacular but not reassuring. It is said that the net receipts were more than seven hundred and fifty dollars. The "World Against Her" at tho Funke on Thursday night played to only ordinary business. The play is a crude melo drama adequately presented. a a a At the Funke, Monday, February 21, Lewis Morrison will appear in the play which has made him famous, Goethe's immortal play "Faust." Mr. Morrkon as Mepbisto in "Faust," has achieved a reputation as an artist surpassed by none. "Genius" said John Ruskin, has in all -ages of the world been extolled and venerated. It has no Rojal birth place; it is not tho offspring of caste or rank, nor indigenous production of any particular country or climate, but it is equally the light and joy of tho cabin of the poor and the palace of the rich. Lewis Morrison entered upon his career under adversn circumstances, but permitted no obstacle to dim bis mind's lofty ideal of the dignity of his profes sion. He is regarded as one of the brightest stars of the theatrical sky. Of Mr. Morrison's Mephisto, it is difficult to say new things of praise. He has been before the public for many jears. and the character of bis art is well HE IRA II tatltatatatatatata--- F.C.ZEHRUNG.Mgr. Corner O and Twelfth streets MONDAY, February 21.
