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.

The statement gives us pleasure,
But its not quite complete;
Is' this by standard measure,
Or by Chicago feet?
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
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
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.

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.
