Twenty-five or thirty young ladles
studiously inclined have banded them
selves together in a reading circle and
cxpectt o derive both pleasure and prof
it from this association. The club will
read whatever Interests the members,
whether It be fiction or something more
serious. The club was organized
Thursday evening, the sixteenth, at the
home of Miss Harriett Spalding, and
will hold fortnightly meetings.
The prettiest home possessed by the
Matinee Muslcale during its migratory
existence of eight years, is Jn use thls
year by this club, but after all It is'
not a real home, any more than a
boarding house is a home for Individ

Fiaternlty hall used by various organ
izations, hence cannot have the Indi
viduality that the Matinee Muslcale
would give its home had it one of its
very own. However, the room Is pleas
ing to the eye. well lighted and com
fortably seated. It Is easy of access,
and the acoustics are fairly good, so
the club will rest content for the pres
ent, and proceed to business. Last
Monday was the first meeting and the
attendance was large. One cause of
congratulation was the large number
of new associate members who were
received. The active membership list,
which is the only one limited. Is full.
the chorus Is filling up rapidly, and
there is a goodly number of student
members. On -Monday Mrs. E. H. Bar
bour, the new president, addressed the
club briefly. She spoke of the strong
committee In charge of the programs
and of the good things promised. She
said that the club had increased Its
strength and Influence durng each
jrear of its existence, and suked the
co-operation of all In sustaining the
high aims of the organization. Mrs.
Barbour" announced that the secretary
and treasurer will be at" Mr. Curtice's
music store on Eleventh street Monday
from two to three o'clock, to grant
membership tickets to those who have
not secured them. The associate mem
bers will need their tickets for the
artist recital Friday evening. Mon
day's program was an attractive one.
Mrs. Herzog opened it with an ex
quisite little story, a light and tripping
novellara and a Cha'mlnade number,
all played in an appreciative manner.
The Caprice Espagnole played later by
Mrs. Herzog displayed her dashing
style advantageously. The club feels
that Jt has a decided acquisition in
Miss Florence Fiske who is a member
this year for the first time. She has
a magnificent stage presence, and a
glorious contralto voice. "With more
experience In public singing. Miss
Fiske will acquire a clearer enuncia
tion, when her folk songs and loe
songs, in a word "little pieces," will be
more enjoyed by her listeners, but she
wlH undoubtedly excel in dramatic
music as she possesses both the voice
and the physique for that style of
songs. Mrs. Ina Enslgn-Hagenow a
lignlfled composition in a scholarly
way. Mrs. Hagenow has always been
a favorite with the club. The flower
cycle which closed the program Is
made up of little poems about common
Mowers, set to music which Is a poem
in Itself, and is not at all common, but
is very beautiful. It was rendered by
voices which blended well, and was
greatly enjoyed. Mrs.. Holyoke's solo
was daintily sung, and the audience
was delighted with the duet by Mrs.
Holyoke and Mrs. Baker. These two
ladies have sung together so much
that they are able to do very artistic
work. Mrs. Carrie B. Raymond ac
companied the soloists In a satisfying
way. The program follows:

A large number of enthusiastic wom
en gathered at the woman's club rooms
Thursday afternoon for the first meet
ing of the home department. Mrs. M.
D. Welch is the leader for the year
and took charge of this first meeting,
her subject being 'The Home of the
Future." In her Introductory remarks
Mrs. Welch spoke of the first crude
homes saying they were probably sticks
stuck In the ground with the skins of
animals for covering, that the home
developed gradually through the wig
wam, the cave, the cabin, until it
reached Its present stage. The word
home means not only the place of hab
itation, but the spirit that pervades
It, and In building our homes we should
be prompted by the spirit of a consid
eration for others. We build not alone
for ourselves and .now, but for others
and the future, and In building we
should also consider our station In life
and strive to conform to It. Mrs. Welch
suggested that If several friends who
are to build new homes would build
and plan together, making one nome
the complement of another, a better
effect would be secured, and she spoke
of landscape gardening, trees, and
groups of shrubbery as valuable acces
sories to external appearance.
Only public architecture can be noble
owing to the fact that the Industries
which are carried on in the homes, ren
der necessary many things which de
tract. The new library building here
and the Burlington railway station In
Omaha, were cited as fine specimens
of buildings devoted to one -purpose.
The home should express peace, rest,
This will be truer of the home of the
future when by some co-operative plan
the cooking and other work will be
done away, thus eliminating the kitch
en and laundry.
Careful ventilation is as necessary to
health as is pure food, and the house
of the future will probably have fresh
air supplied automatically. The home
of the future will probably be heated
by electricity, it will not be built of
wood because she forests are being so
rapidly devasted and not of stone for
the cold stone walls create draughts.
One who takes an extreme view of the
case says the house of the future will
probably be built of glass.
The discussion which followed the ad
dress was participated in by a num
ber of the ladies and was very Inter
esting. The department will meet in two
weeks with Doctor May Flanagan as
leader for the afternoon. Her subject
will be "The Physical Training of the
Twentieth Century Child."
The ladles who attended the meeting
of the art department of the woman's
club Monday afternoon are speaking
enthusiastically of its success. Mrs.
G. E. Barber, leader of the department,
gave a ten minutes talk on the begin
nings of art. Mrs. E. P. Savage talked
of the architecture and external fea
tures of a home. Mrs. Walter B. Har-
greaves. whose own home Is one of the
best examples of artistic furnishing in ,
Lincoln, gave a practical talk about
the interior of a modern home of mod
erate cost, large enough to accommo
date a family of six. persons. The
ideal home which Mrs. Hargreaves de
scribed was furnished in mission style.
A general discussion, of the practical
features of a home, including closets,
china closets, the height of ceilings,
ventilation and so forth, followed the
more formal talks. Hereafter the meet
ings of the art department will be held
on Friday of the week alternating with
the American home, which he says is
club. The next meeting will fall on
Friday. November seventh, at half af
ter two o'clock, when Mr. Francis J.
Plym will talk on the development of
the American house, which he says is
the best home In the world. If It is pos
sible to get the slides Mr. Plym will

The Daughters of the American Rev
olution in other states have been in the
habit of holding annual state confer
ences and this week, Nebraska fell In
- line with her first meeting of this sort,
held Wednesday afternoon at the home
of Mrs." A. S. Tlbbets. Mrs. S. B.
Tound the state regent, called the meet
ing, and the ladies stamped it with
their approval and agreed to hold such
meetings annually on the third Wed
nesday In October. The next meeting
will be held in Omaha in 1903.
The delegates were met at the trains

composed of Mesdames J. R. Haggard.
M. H. Everett, Ella K. Morrison. M. D.
Welch. C. O. Whedon and M. J.
Waughj and were driven about the city
to view thifcplaces of Interest, while the
McKlnley (Slime rang out a program of
patriotic airs as a welcome to these
At twelve o'clock the delegates and
the officers of Deborah Avery chapter
assembled at Mrs. Pound's home in re
sponse to her invitation to a breakfast.
The hostess was assisted by Mrs. R. T.
Van Brunt and Mrs. J. C. Harpham.
The guests were seated at small tables
decorated with chrysanthemums. A
mutual Interest made the ladles feel
at home with each other and this gath
ering was greatly enjoyed. At two
o'clock the convention at Mrs. Tib
bets' was called to order. Mrs. Pound
presided and welcomed the visitors to
Lincoln. In her address she spoke
of the work done by the society In
marking historic spots in the east, in
encouraging the study of American
history, and -in assisting the soldiers in
time of war.
Mrs. M. B. Lowrie of Omaha offered
,the invocation, after which Miss Bishop
of Omaha, sang. "The Star Spangled
Banner." which is the D. A. R. song.
Mrs. S. C. Langworthy of Seward re
sponded to the address of welcome and
stated that the chief object of
the meeting was to discuss plans for
a monument to mark the spot, at Fort
Calhount, on which Lewis and Clarke
made their treaty with the Indians.
Mrs. W D. Williams of Omaha read
a paper on "Marking Historic Spots,"
in which she told the story of the Lewis
and Clarke expedition in 1804, and the
first treaty made with the Indians on
August third of that year.
The expedition, commanded by Cap
tain Lewis and Captain Clarke, was
sent out by President Jefferson for the
purpose of discovering the source of the
Missouri river, and the most convenient
water communication with the Pacific
coast The expedition came up the
river and on the third of August, as
Just stated, held a council with the In
dians and announced to them the
change of government from France to
the United States, promising them pro
tection. This treaty was made on the
spot where Fort Calhoun, at one time
called Fort Atkinson, stood, and Is
about sixteen miles from Omaha. Two
thousand soldiers lie buried there. It
is the wish of the Daughters of the
American Revolution residing In Ne
braska, to erect a suitable monument
to mark this historic spot, and various
plans for accomplishing this, were dis
cussed. " The present owner of the land
has offered to donate an acre or two
of ground for the purpose desired, but
the ladles feel that more Is needed.
If sufficient money for a monument
cannot be secured it is likely that a
boulder, suitably Inscribed, will be used.
