LIFE'S MAZY WHIRL
Christmas is almost here, (please ilo
not spell It "Xmiis"). and for once so
ciety folk have begrudged the time
spent at afternoon functions this week.
Fortunately the afternoon affairs were
kenslnRtons ami the fancy work ac
companied the guests and the fingers
Hew as nimbly as did the tongues, and
that is saying much as any one who
has attended a kensington will testify.
.Miss Alvallne Clark's debut party was
an Interesting event Inasmuch as it
launched upon the Lincoln social sea
an attractive young lady destined to
liopularlty. The parties given by Mrs.
Dunn and Mrs. Kincaide were very
successful. Tne Weir-Wnugh parties
were especially appreciated because
the card parties were given in the eve
ning when the men could participate in
the pleasure. The opening of the ex
hibition of the Nebraska Art associa
tion with a reception Thursday evening
will be of general interest next week
and all lovers of art should be present.
