Mr. and Mrs. George Burr entertained

club gathered especially to keep St.
Patrick's day. The women wore gowns
of green and the men were fastidious
with yellow ties. Irish songs were sung,

John B. Wright. The guects were
seated at small tables placed in the din
ing room and the library. There were
covers for sixty, and roee carnation
greeted each one as he found his place.

For those who have ever been in
Turkey, more especially in Constanti
nople, the striking note, even before
Turkish coffee, is the ease and luxury
of the life there. The Turks know
what is restful to the eye and moreover
how to interpret this knowledge. Mrs.
Wright has a Turkish room with the
soft, rich looking rugs of that country,
Turkish hangings, cushions, taborets,
lamps and curious, interesting, lovely
pieces of bric-a-brac. A bronze jarde
niere with a wierd, graceful design is
one of the most beautiful pieces in the
Mr. A. C. Ziemerrwho for thirty years
has sold tickets from Lincoln to all
parts of the earth not imhedded in ice
or a desert, has resigned from his posi
tion of Burlington ticket agent. The
gentle courtesy Mr. Ziemer always
showed the caravan of travelers will
surely be missed. Women with im
pedimenta of bird-cages and children
who asked Mr. Ziemer questions the
answers to which were written on the
blackboard, received the oral informa
tion which they evidently preferred,
and were not referred to the blackboard'
or printed folders. Possibly Mr. Ziemer
never knew what a relief he has been
to nervous travelers whose experience
with cynical ticket agents has made
them sensitive.- Mr. Ziemer never
seemed to expect commonBense of
travelers and he was thus never irritat
ed. But his typo in that business and
position is very rare. He has resigned
his position in order to devote his whole
time to Christian Science, of which he
is a successful and devoted practioner.

Mr. August Hagenow, the leader of
the orchestra and the liberal dispenser
of good music is asking those who share
with him in a love of music to make it
possible to hold another series f of sum
mer concerts in the open air. The open
air concerts were the pleasanteet and
most distinctive feature of last summer
in this resort of the weary and sunbak
ed. The work of securing the contri
butions is wearisome and if those who
really appreciate Mr. Hagenow 's efforts
to temper the effect of the wind, flies
and midday sun by an evening t
door, soothing, cooling - -
send him their contri
of this faithful, patient musician would
be lightened. It requires 31,500 to give
the twenty concerts he offers, Thero
will be nearly thirty players in the or
chestra. A new ropnrtoir has been
prepared and those requests for special
members which aro signed will bo hood
ed by the leader. Mr. Hagenow thinks
there is a difference between trashy and
popular music, and his orchestra will
play the latter.
The ladies of tho Review and Art
club of York, with their husbands, en
tertained tho Avon club members and
their huabande.at the spacious residence
of Mrs. J. (I. Bell, on March 15th. In
celebration of St. Patrick's day, every
thing pertaining to the evening's en
joyment was carried out in real Irish
style. Each guest assumed a character
for the evening, and was an
nounced by his nom de plume. Each
one recited an amusing Irish anecdote.
Wit and mirth abounded and sparkled
through the evening. The dining room
was a bower of green, the table was
profusely decorated with smilax. Po
tatoes weie served in dainty transfor
mations and upon every guest tho sham
rock was pinned. Cards attached to
minute tubers, were given to each guest
and a prize was awarded to tho one
making the largest number of words
from "Potatoes." This was a huge po
tato filled with bon bono, tho cover
tied down with a bit of green ribbon.
Before leaving, many tried, but few suc
ceeded in kissing the Blarney stone,
which was suspended in the hall. The
originality, true hospitality and lively
.Irish wit, in this "St. Patrick's Day"
party will live long in the annals of
York's social events.
Mrs. Apperson, president of the Ne
braska Federation, paid her first official
visit to the Omaha club on March 5th, .
as the special guest, of, the Household
Economics department where she was
the chief speaker. Several hundred
women including the representatives of
the Mu Sigma, Dundee, North Omaha,
and Council Bluffs' Women's clubs were
present to greet Mrs. Apperson, and at
the conclusion of the program they
made her acquaintance personally at a
reception given in her honor by tho
House and Home committee, Mrs. Har
ford, chairman. Mrs. ApperEon's pa
per was an exposition of the duty of Ne
braska women toward home making,
and her practical discussion of their
opportunities was an inspiration to the
women who heard it, as was also her
strong and gracious personality. Mrs.
Apperson was in the city a few hours
only, but the informal hospitality of her
hostess, Mrs. Draper Smith, made room
for guests not only at dinner but at
breakfast, and for calls at all hours.
While space by Mrs. Mary M Pugh. was
formed for a luncheon, to the State
president and some members of the
Household Economics department. In
deed Omaha clubdom made rapid use of
its opportunities, and Mrs. Apperson
must certainly feel herself the richer in
personal friendship, since her visit.
