There hpa been unusual enterprise
among the young people this week,
owing, possibly to the enthusiasm with
which the atmosphere i& charged when
the small boy is predominant, circus
fortnight. Picnic parties, lawn parties
and birthday festivals, flourish until
even the clubs catch the contagion, and
for the moment one wonders whether
the low water mark of deadness has not
Among noteworthy events of last
week which occurred while The Courier
was in press, was the dinner given by
Mrs. L. C. Richards on Friday evening
to a company of twelve, in honor of
Miss Clark. Those present were: Mee
dames R A. Holyoke, C. H. Gere, C.
E. Beesey, O. B. Green, W. J. Lamb,
and J. S. Dales. Misses Gere and Dales
There was also on Friday evening a
tally-ho excursion to Ensign's farm,
which was one of the merriest of the
young people's gatherings this fortnight.
The picnic supper, the dance and the
rollicking ride homewere enjoyed by the
following: Misses Blanche Friedsam of
Beatrice, Blanche JJargreavee, Laura
Houtz, Margaret Whedon, Vine Gra
ham, Louise Tukey of Omaha, Clara
Hammond, Emma Outcalt. and Mabel
Hayes. Messrs. Burt Wbedon,- Earl
McCreery, Edgar Morrill, Hugb Edmis
ton, George Bartlett, Jack Sumner,
Elam Seacrest and-Gharlea Abbott.
A number of charming birthday par
ties have been enjoyed by the very
young people during the week. On
Friday, July the tenty-Beventh, Mrs.
L. E. WetUing invited the following
lads and lassies to celebrate the seventh
birthday of Master. Eugene Wettling:
Misses Helen Hammond, Amanda
Rocke, Esther Lawler and Helen Lawler
Masters Glen Wirt, Albert Reed, Jack
Manning, John Lawler and Edward
Rogers. On the same day Miss Camille
Prewitt commemorated her sixth an
niversary by a picnic party at F street
park, where the guests were: Misses
Lill'an Zimmer, Helena Zimmer, Helen
Hoon, Bessie McMurray, Leila Prewitt
and Master Alva Piewitt. Another
picnic party in honor of a birthday was
enjoyed in .scarcely less frolicsome style
by young people of s somewhat more
demure age, also on Friday of last week.
M'sb May Hathaway was the honored
maiden whom the following young peo
ple escorted to Peck's Grove to cele
brate her seventeenth birthday: Misses
Tyler and Morton of South Dakota,
Mabel Wickwire of St. Louis, Mary
Mulner, Rose Speier, Lunette Keith of
Chicago, Ethel Donley, Edith Lapp,
Hattie Stevenson, Anita Hyde, Maud
Sigourney and Emma Tyler.
An original idea for a girl's lawn party
was evolved in the entertainment- given
V Misses Olivia BkfylfleTand Geneva
Bullock to a company of high school
maids on Thursday at Miss Bullock's
North Sixteenth street home. Num
bered slips were distributed, and the
party scattered to hunt for the corre
sponding number on a ticket hidden in
arbor, shrubbery, or even up in the old
evergreen trees in the yard. The ticket
admitted to a sceance in "Old Maid's
Retreat," a bower fitted up in reorder
of the porch, where, one by one, the
girls 'entered, met the pretty and
witty "did maid," with her cat and her
curls, listened to a spinster warning,
and were regaled with a cup of tea.
Other refreshments, partaken of with
lees solemnity, followed. Sixteen girls
were present, viz: Misses Josie Vif
quain, Mary Benedict, Louise Allen,
Marian Bell, Fannie Bentley, Lida and
Clella Williams, Kelley, Nellie Miller,
Sylvia Beattie, Emily Bowers, Vesta
Hubbard, Emma Melick and Florence
Loomis. Miss Jeffries presided as "old
maid," and presented souvenirs of tiny
gilt-edged mittens inscribed with ap
propriate verse. Other suggestions
for entertainments are found in new
"guessing contests,' always diverting to
young people "or those not so young.
There have been smelling tests, tast
ing tournaments, and indeed all manner
of puzzles offered to sight and sense,
but & feeling contest has not often been
tried. Have a small table piled with
little parcels of all shapes, securely tied
with ribbon. The parcels are numbered,
and so are the cards with pencil at
tached, furnished each contestant
Small flat-irons, rolling-pine, dolls, etc.,
easily found in toy shops, increase the
variety afforded by such ordinary ar
ticles as clothes pins and paper knives.
There should be no duplicates, of course,
but an appropriate prize. A guessing
game that interests men is found in fill
ing out with names the initials of rail
roads. A very ordinary time table con
, fains.more of theser hierogliphics than
most of us can put a meaning to. Still
another contest that entertains all
wheelmen, is arranged by devising ques
tions, to be answered by the mimes of
well known bicycles. This is a surpris
ingly easy device to prepare, for one
Boon discovers that ancient history and
modern, in fact, most places of earth,
heaven and even hades have been called
into requisition to furnish a vocabulary
for the American's favorite speed-maker.-
Miss Anna Fossler, formerly assistant
in the department of science, of the
University of Nebraska, and niece of
Professor Laurence Foseler, left on
Saturday, July the twenty-eighth, for
Berkeley, University of California, where
she has a position as cataloguer and
librarian. The place ae secured
through the influence of Miss Jones,
former librarian of the University of
Nebraska, the instructor whose first
library class enrolled Miss Foseler some
years ago. The study of library meth-s
ods then begun has been continued by
Miss Fossler in New York where she
has worked for the past two years, cat
aloguing libraries in the smaller towns
throughunt the state. Returning to
Lincoln at the beginning of summer by
way of Montreal, she attended the
meeting of the International Library
Association, and now has left to begin
work across the continent.
