All of the drawing and shading in Gran ford ia subtle and it is therefore the 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. Complimentary Teas. 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.
