Their meeting with Miss Treesa Reagan, on Thursday, July the twenty-seventh, was one of unique guessing contests, pillow dex and other amusements so entertaining that the proposition of finding new fun for the next meeting, seemed dubious. Miss Anna Hammond is to be hostess, how ever at next week's entertainment, and is certain to prove more than equal to the emergency. Mrs. John Dorgan is spending a few dayB in Chicago and will return on Monday. The members of the party now tour ing the Alps with Doctor and Mrs. J. T.

So many Lincoln people have visited Bayfield and met the celebrated Captain Pike and whipped the trout streams thereabouts that these letters from Dr. Dorris to his daughter, Mrs. Til ton, need no marginal comment: - 1 Bayfield, Wis., July 24, 1900. We are in prime condition. Dr. Dixon and wife arrived Sunday and are at Captain Pike's, about three miles out. We took dinner there yesterdaj. He lives in style. He is the biggest mogul of this region owns all the mills, logs, pine and everything else. Has his pri vate yacht and everything that million aires have. He owns a trout stream, because he owns all the land; and on that trout streams hangs a tale. Your father has suddenly become famous. Yesterday I took the largest brook rout ever taken in this region, weight two and a quarter pounds. Captain Pike wouldn't let it go ao, but declared some years ago be caught one larger, but all the old fishermen said it was the largest ever seen here. I had an exciting time landing him and had to play him up and down the creek for some time. He darted under logs, stones, banks, and your dad danced wildly up and 'down the shore trying to keep his line taut, and finally succeeded in landing him, and as soon ss the line loosened the hook came out of bis mouth, so you can see by how narrow a margin I achieved victory. We had him served here at the hotel for breakfast, and it was enough for our table of eight, and our chef outdid himself in the garnish ing and cooking. All the fellows have had their fish story and I never have had one till now. This morning at eleven we go on a picnic with the Cap tain Pike party to Madeline island on the steamer Plowboy. Did we tell you there are thirty Lincoln people over at the Madeline island resort? We are in vited over there and shall go some day. We also go on a steamboat excursion with the Woods Saturday among the Apostle islands. We are both sleeping and eating well and enjoying it up to .the limit (when my feet are warm). Can't tell when we will leave here, but probably not for two weeks anyway. Begins Here on Monday, August 6th. July, the month of stockrclearing, has left num-. berless odds and ends, broken lots, remnants, etc., etc., on the counters and shelves. Then we have pro-; cured the mill ends" or factory lengths of many mills throughout the country bought them in anticipation! ot this event. Un Monday, the whole collection rep- resenting every aepartment in tne store win go on sale at ACTUAL, MILL, COST. This means that it's possible for you to purchase these, the best of the season s wares, for what they cost the makers. Send for a special circular giving full particulars. WNCOLN, NEBR. ,S3&&. ?t m im If you see Dr. Bailey tell him my fish story. In fact, the more you tell it, the better I shall be pleased. I never be fore had anything to brag of, and the new experience inflates me, and expan sion is all right. Love to all my friends. A. H. Dorris. Bayfield, Wis., July 23, 1900. Saturday Noon. There are only two bottles of ink in the house and both in use, so you will have to take a pencil sketch. We are glad to hear you are so well, and you need not worry because Dorris eats so little. It is about time she was filled up. So many events are taking place in such rapid sequence that I forget what I have told you and may repeat "myself. You know of my achievement with the trout. Well, I am so inflated that I go looking into every water hole, under stones and logs, in the creeks, looking for trout. Yes terday, up a ravine, through which ran a lively trout stream, I came to a large bole with some floating logs in it snd, in my enthusiasm, I jumped on a log to look for the speckled beauties. Well, it was a case of misplaced confidence. That log shot out from under me and I got a ducking, and had to send n.y trousers to the tailor's to be pressed and creased. Dorrance Harwood was with me on my ducking excursion and was wildly amused at the accident. We went to the theater together here. We thought it was going to be pretty raw, but the play turned out better than we expected and we weren't half bored. In the afternoon we went to Captain Pike's to tea and met the Bayfield swells. Had a good time. Got a lot of new conundrums and stories and a swell dinner. A promised rids in his yacht bad to be abandoned because ot some hitch in the wheels. We will take it as soon as the machinery Is fixed and the lake smooth enough. It is pretty rough outside today and white caps are run ning. It is so cool here that I am not intensely comfortable; feet cold all the time' and want my overcoat eight hours out of ten through the day, and a big comfort on the bed at night. Mama, however, is delighted. I guess I didn't tell you of our island excursion. Captain Pike in vited us Thursday to a. steamboat ex cursion to Madeline island. They pro vided lunch for the party. There were seven of us in the party and we had a delightful time. He is a royal enter tainer. We left our cards at the Woods cottage. They -vere off on an inland ex cursion. We have not yet made our call on the tent party. Misses Helen Woods and Jessie Lansing are here to dinner today with Miss Helen Harwood. Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Harwood seem to be enjoying their stay here, but I think Dorrance gets the most out of it. We have nothing on band today. Tomor row a trip among the Apostle Islands or Ashland, twenty miles down the bay, where we can do some dhopping in a live city. Later A fairy story comes over from the island that the Hardy party out on the outer island yesterday caught fifty five bass, the smallest weighing, two pounds, besides two muscalonge, one caugar, by Ally Munger, weighing six teen pounds, and one by Roscoe Pound weighing fifteen pound. But from the well known proclivities of this party the report must be accepted with allowance. I can't afford to let a mere rumor like that eclipse the verified statement of my trout. I am known here now as the man that caught the big trout. Bus and Muscalonge are tame fish. A. H. Dorris. Get a cheap Electric Fan at Kors meyer's, and keep cool.
