handed to you in onvolopcH at soup, to
bo answered at desert. Theso questions
were on literary Bubjccts, and then you
woro requested to make a epigram or
something, and a prize was offered. Tho
very thought of tho thing chilled diges

that Lincoln young ladies havo of lato

awaited with great interest. Miss Jones,
who uppeara for tho ilrst time in this
city us a dramatic roador, creates a weird
character in hor rolo of tho v itch with
much ctrect and power. MIbb Brock dis
plays charm and originality in tho rendi
tion of hor romantic rolo. MIbb Oakley
and Mr. Lowe, aB leading juveniles bIiow
marked facility. Thoy aro doing boiuo
very interesting work. Tho hroguo roles
of MiBB Burr and Mr. Curtico aro full of
wit, and a clovor interpretation of thcBo

tho colored cook displays tho comic
burnt cork art and originality which
Lincolnites havo learned to oxpect from
him; whilo Mr. Polk's versatile Peter
Pumyruph adds greutly to tho comedy
element of tho entertainment. Mr.
Hicks and Mr. Clapp aro strong in their
heavy roles. "Among tho Breakers"

respondent whoso sources of information
are, so far as I can learn, accurate, in
forms us that a rising young business
man on South Elovonth street will, some
time during tho summor, tako unto him
self a wife in the person ot one of Lin
coln's pretty brunottcs, well and favor
ably known In Lincoln society. Tho
bride's trousseau will, it lb said, be
"framed in an artistic manner." From
tho sumo correspondent wo loam that
there is some prospect of a doublo wed
ding in Soptombor that will uttrnct con
siderable uttontion. Only ono of tho
couples lives in Lincoln. Tho following
unique suggestion is also mude by our
lively correspondent: "I think Unit it
would bo so much nicer if all tho girls
would announce their engagement by
giving a nice little teu party to their im
mediate girl friends. It wouldn't cost
very much, if that is what thoy four, and
they could then hIiow how proud they
were of having secured tho lovo of boiuo
good num." Cvnio.
Snrosis mot on Monday, and tho
charming Biibject of "Mythology" was
led by Mis. Maulo. Tho subject is ono
that a brief review does scanty justice,
Its origin Ih tho beginning of history for
Gods and men were not far removed
from each other. Man's uaturo being
spiritual the necessity of boiuo object for
reverence and devotion was keenly felt.
Having little or no knowledge of the
mysteries of creation and reproduction,
tho earliest peoples at once ascribed
these jKiwors to mythical beings whom
they believed populated tho sky, air and
sea. The mythology of tho EgyptiaiiH
is about 7,000 years old, in fact Kb age
can Bcarcely be computed. They recog
nized that light was ono of the tlrst
principles of existence so life whb ropro
sen ted a light and darkness a death.
In man is the creative owcr and
woman tho giver of life. Whatevor gives
llfo Ib worthy of adoration. Tho Eypt
tlan Gods were numerous and powerful,
The Bun in its different Btages of pro
gress through tho heavens proved ono of
the most fruitful of fanciful ideas. Tho
Greek and Roman mythology were
similar, In fact originally the same. Tho
Greek Letio, the all powerful father, was
tho Roman Jupiter. Juno, his wife,
corresponds with tho Greek Hera, and
bo throughout the entire catalogue of
divinities there was no phase of life or
death which was not under tho care of
some god or goddess. Tho Norso and
German mythology wero tho same.
Odin, tho chief god, was tho giver of life
and spirit. His chief dwelling was the
great Valhalla, where those slain in
battle were feasted and preserved until
that time when the whole earth should
be wrapt in Humes. There was nothing
in nature which did not bring to tho
mind of tho Teuton convincing proof
that tho gods had charge of it all and
directed till things. Theirs was a more
stupendous, yot simple conception of tho
workings of those divinities thoy wor
ship, and thoy lacked in grace much that
was found in tho southern gods. Yet
thoy wero chasto and virtuous.
In Persia there aro at present 82,000
tiro worshippers who beliovo that as lifo
Is supported by tho elements thoy aro
tho proper subjects for adoration.
Earth, lire and water must not bo
polluted. As tiro is tho only element
that can bo confined, that Ib tho ono
taken into tho temples of worship.
Their deud thoy cannot burn, for that
would pollute tho llro, neither do thoy
dare to dury a body, for tho earth would
bo foul so thoy aro left to bo devoured
by wild beasts or fowls. According to
Max Mullor theso myths all come from
tho ancient homo of tho Aryan race,
India. In tho Vcdda tho oldest of all
books- is given those most prominent
feature which make up tho ancient
religions of tho world. Caste had its
origin in a clever schemo of tho Brah
man priests, who claimed to havosprung
from tho forohcad of tho god. Thoso
less fortunate came from tho Bides,
thighs or feet, and thus tho four castes
Tho idealities and myths of tho Amer
ican Indian will soon bo among tho
things of memory. Thoy lack many of
tho beautiful fancies of more civilized
nations, still tho voices of nature spoke
loudly to him of the present and future'

If Prince Isenberg von Blrsteln really
succeeds in marrying Miss Pullman, ho
will certainly deserve congratulations
for his persistence and determination
not to bo overcome by obstacles. Tho
Prince whoso last name Ihwi suggestive
of a German beer garden, is well re
membered by New Yorkers who summer
at NewMrt, for ho spent there almost
tho whole season of 18!h2, a guest for the
larger part of tho timo of Mr. Theodore
Havomoyor's, who Is the Austrian Con-sul-Genoral
at this port, and on whom,
of course, the Prince straightway called
on his arrival. The Prince certainly en
joyed himself to the utmost at Newport,
and was assiduous in his attentions to
two or more of tho leading belles that
summer. Ho spent last winter in Wash
ington, and uince then, as everyone
knows, has been devoting his time to
trying to marry Miss Pullmkn. Wheth
or there Is any truth or not in the story
that Sir George Pullman, having ascer
tained that his daughter, if she married
the Prince, might not have a seat at the
royal tnblo of the Prince's cousin, the
emperor of Austria, and that the einper
or has finally arranged that she should,
so that Sir George has given his consent
to tho engagement, it is known that
Chicago's titled citizen, for whom Eu
geno Field suggested us u coat of arms
"a pillow flunked by two negro porters,
with crest of flea rampant and motto
'Quid Rides,' " has not smiled umii tho
proposed union, and for no other reason
but that ho will bo expected to give his
daughter a largo dot.
