Above all else, Lincoln is a city of
extremes. Periods of heat and of cold,
of BunBhine and storm, of gayety and of
social inactivity follow each other in
bewildering succession. From the dig.
nified, scholarly diversions of commence,
ment week to the paganish din of the
Fourth is a single Btep. In the opening
days of June, informal prenuptial break
fasts, dainty luncheons and ceremonious
dinners prepared the way for the bril
liant weddings which quickly followed.
But summer brides and roses have van
ished, and tightly-closed blinds and
window shades tell the story of deser
tion, of the annual flitting to the coun
try, the mountains and the seashore.
With the few who remain in Lincoln,
the social season is ending. Dainty
summer toilettes are replaced by kim
onos and collarless shirt waists, while
street cars and soda fountains rival in
popularity the card parties and elabor
ate functions of the cooler months.
Club workers, too, are taking a vacation,
and are turning gladly to Nature for the
artistic and musical effects which have
been the subject of systematic study
during many weeks.
Married, Miss Ellen Fowle Lee, daugh
ter of Brigadier-General Fitzhugh Lee,
U.S.A., to First Lieutenant James
Cooper Rhea of the Seventh cavalry, U.
S.A., at noon on Thursday, June 29, in
the Church of the Transfiguration in
New York city. No formal invitations
were issued, the wedding guests"-having
been invited verbally. The chancel of
"The Little Church Around the Corner"
was quite large enough to accommodate
the bridal party. There were groups of
palms on either side of the altar. The

classmates of the bridegroom, were Lieu
tenant William P. Wooten of the engi
neer corps, Clifton C Carter of the ar
tillery corps, Pierce C. Murphy, Second

ley Long, Twelfth United States cav
alry. The bride's father gave her away.

sent from the Filipinos for the occasion.

and bodice made with Bmall knife pleat-
ings and trimmed with white satin
ribbons. Her -veil was of tulle and was
held in place with a small cluster of
orange blossoms. The bridal bouquet
was of white sweet peas. Miss Anne
Fitzhugh Lee, sister of the bride, who
was the maid of honor, wore white or
gandie with insertions of lace, over
white taffeta, and trimmed with yellow
satin ribbons. She wore a large black
chiffon hat, trimmed with black ostrich
plumes. Her bouquet was of yellow
coreopsis, to match the color of the cav
alry. There were no bridesmaids.

the Seventh cavalry, attended the bride
groom as beet man. Both men wore
full dress uniforms. Mrs. Lee's cos
tume was of gray crepe de chine over
pink silk, and a small bonnet of steel,
with white and pink roses. An uncon
ventional incident as the young couple
descended from the chancel steps was
much enjoyed by the . guests. As the

her father and mother, she embraced

Mrs. Jefferson Davis, from a pew on
the opposite side of the aisle, came for
