All of the drawing and shading in Gran

more remarkable that amateurs should
be able to express them so satisfactorily
The Honorable, rich, selfish Mrs. Jamie
Bon in a bouffant frock transformed the
Blender Mies Hamilton into a matronly,
buxom figure who went to sleep quito
naturally. Miss Cole as Miss Mary
Smith was a charming young lady with
neck curls. She was present in the
play as the narrator is present in the
book, a sympathetic, helpful visitor en
tirely unconscious of her own charm.
Lady Glenmire was unaffectedly simple
and lovely. Miss Bowen was natural
and easy. Miss Haggard as Mrs. For
ester was tart and spicy. Miss Gertrude
M scomber, the maid, waB an English
country maid, crude and loving. Miss
Garten as Miss Pole was both handsome
and impressive, of quick answer, gesture
and impu'se. Miss Edith Abbott as the
only man was remarkably effective. It
is a pity that this play should have been
seen by only a few people. The casto
has made a scholarly study of costumes,
properties and stage setting and their
play is fetching and their effects well
made. Between the acts Miss Jessie
Lansing sung some old songs. Miss
Lansing's exquisite and careful reading
of her songs, her sweet reaching voice
in these old melodies, the simplicity and
truth of her method, made the between
acts very pleasant.
Wednesday afternoon the Kappa Kappa
GammaB gave a complimentary tea at
Delta Gammas in Lincoln.
This is the week of the twelfth bien
nial convention of Delta Gamma. The
second floor of the Lincoln has been
given up to the delegates who dine to
gether, en famille, in the ordinary.
The Cranford Play.
Members of the local chapter of Delta
Gamma produced a play on Tuesday
night at the home of Miss Garten.
Somebody employed by the Ladies'
Home Journal has dramatized Cranford,
that delightful, pathetic story told by
Mrs. Gaskell bo many years .ago, a story
that has more charm in one unpreten
tious little p8ge than there is in all the
three hundred and sixty pages of "To
Have and to Hold," or in any of the
other historical efforts lately printed.
One of the most satisfactory and whole
some delights of girls' fraternities is the
intimate family association of college
girls. Another advantage not enjoyed
by barbarians is the intercourse which
is ever kept alive between the alumnae
and active members of the fraternity.
Cranford was a small English village
inhabited principally by women, maiden
ladies and widows, a poverty-stricken
little village wherein the ancient ladies
lived lives of self-denial sweetened by
convictions that wealth ia vulgar and
poverty refinement. Charity, gentleness,
unselfishness, reverence for breeding
ard for rank; which are by no means
synonymous, characterize the ladieeof
Cranford. The young ladies who pre
sented the play on Tuesday evening
were exquisite illustrations of the book, the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. O. Whedon.
The stage was set with old furniture, Invitations were extended to the moth-spider-legged
tables and chairs, a rare ere of the Kappa members and to all
old spinet, a tall clock, old brass candle- the members of local fraternities as well
sticks, and old-fashioned bric-a-brac, as to the visiting delegates. The guests

were dainty paneled screens of card- and Sarah Outcalt, who were dressed in
board folded twice with a character in white. The dining room was beauti

Mrs. Edmisten, Miss Polk and Miss fleur-de-lis and was lighted with blue
