LIFE'S MAZY WHIRL
In many eastern cities the social
season does not begin until the middle
of December, but in Lincoln it has
leen in full swing for a month, and
some ladies have been compelled to
change their dates because of so many
conflicting ones announced. This week
has been a busy one. Miss Hcllow
bush's wedding, although small, was
quite the most Important event, but
many have been very enjoyable. Mrs.
Harley is a charming -hostess, and her
series of card parties have been among
the distinct successes. Mrs. Metcalfs
reception was pretty. Indeed, and al
though It had no rivals this week, as It
was the only large reception given. It
would have compared favorably with
any. The fact that the guest of honor
was on the briny deep Instead of being
present to greet the callers, of course,
disappointed those who were eager to
meet her. The smaller parties of the
week were equally as pleasant as the
large ones. An unusual number of
large affairs are announced for next
On "Wednesday at high noon at Holy
Trinity Episcopal church was celebrat
ed the marriage of Miss Henrietta Hol
lowbush. daughter of Mrs. M. S. Hol
low bush, and Mr. Homer Honeywell,
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. TC Honeywell,
the anniversary of whose marriage was
celebrated by this wedding. Before
the bridal party entered the church
Miss Stslla Bice played the following
organ numbers: "March." Dudley
Buck: "Love Song." Kevin: "Offer
tolre." "Wely: "Pastorale." Grech. For
a processional Miss Bice plaved a nup
tial march by Gullmant. during the
ceremony Elsa's bridal song from Lo
hengrin, and after th service Med
delssohn's march. Bev. Francis W.
Kason. the rector of the church, read
the service. Miss Hoilowbush and Mr.
Honevwell entered the church togeth
er and unattended, and Mr. B. H.
Keener, uncle of the bride, gave her In
marriage. The bride's gown was a tri
umph of the tailor's art. Tt was of the
handsomest broadc'oath In a light bis
cuit color, so light that It looked cream
bv the gas light. The skirt flared at
the bottom and had cut work over
panne velvet in the form of a yoke.
It was made over a white taffeta petti
coat. The Eton jacket was entirely of
the cut work In a graceful design over
the panne velvet of the same shade
and the waist was of white crepe
meteor trimmed with duchesse lace.
The bride wore a perfect love of a hat.
Tt was an Imported affair, rather large,
created of white moleane In an Inde
scribable manner and over one side
drooped a long, white ostrich plume.
This exquisite costume was completed
with a white ostrich feather boa. a lace
handkerchief which was carried by
Mrs. Hoilowbush on her own wedding
day and a harvest moon crescent set
with twenty-three diamonds. the
gift of the groom. The church
was decorated- with palms in
the chancel and at the rood
screen, the altar was banked with yel
low and white chrysanthemums, and
bows of yellow and while ribbon were
on the ends of the pews. Only a few
Intimate friends witnessed the cere
mony. At the home of the bride's
mother a family wedding breakfast
was served. The bridal gifts were verv
handsome. The traveling gown was of
hop-sacking In an old blue shade. The
skirt was tucked In the form of a yoke
and had three flounces, the blouse was
trimmed with cut work In a conven
tional design over blue velvet. The
