"Oysters" were the menu of a supper given by the trustees of
the Congregational church. These gentlemen never do things by
halves so these delicious bivalves were served in the most tempting
manner to all who availed themselves of the invitation. As the
funds were for the Industrial School the partaker found additional
relish in the pleasing of his own palate and contributing to a worthy
The storm of Monday was not sufficient to keep Sorosis ladies
from attendance upon the regular meeting. The promise of an in
teresting paper from Mrs. Welch upon Australia was also a motive
and this promipe was amply fullfilled. The continent of Austra
hasia, with its advanced ideas and legislation is a most profitable
study for the people of the United States and as its new phases are
presented wo may adopt those that prove successful and leave un
tried those that assure success. New Zealand has gone farther in
new ventures than the other colonies and has successfully intro
duced woman suffrage and compromised with the laboring class.
Mrs. Welch's very thorough acquaintance with the country enabled
her to answer intelligently the many questions propounded and to
lead the ladies into an entirely different train of thought than that
awakened at the former discussion of that subject. An adjourn
ment was taken until November 12. The next meeting will be held
in room 17, Nebraska Hall, when Miss Richardson will illustrate
her "Trip through the Yellowstone."'
A very interesting and unique entertainment was given under the
auspices of the Y. W. C. A. in the Congregational Church, Tuesday
evening. The opening number was a violin solo by August Hage
now, accompanied by Lis daughter May Belle. Of Mr. Hagenow's
playing it is unnecessary to speak, for all Lincolnites know his con
scientious and artistic work. The "little maid" accompanies in a
superior manner and unless some unforeseen circumstance occurs
will develop into a rare pianist. A song "Sunny Spain" by Hattie
Cropper, and a cradle song, "Sleep, My Child,' by Mrs. Cropper re
vealed talent that will prove valuable additions to Lincoln musical
circles. Little Florence Lawrence appeared in a charming song and
later as "Ragged Pal," which was clever, and remarkably done.
Great credit was reflected upon the careful and judicious training of
her mother who appeared in the song. Mr. Flanque, of the Uni
versity conservatory, gave a banjo solo which met with much favor
that a recall was imperative. The gentleman is thoroughly master
of his instrument and the music was a revelation to those who had
hitherto failed to see art or music in banjo playing. The successful
program closed with a "Nocturne" for violin, viola anJ piano which
left impressions of dreamy night songs and sweetest melody. The

There is no falling off in the number of projected weddings and
Linccln society circles have scarcely time to recover from the effects
of one couple breaking awaj from single blessedness, beforo another
interesting occasion comes to keep up the excitement. Weddings
past and to come are the chief topic of conversation; even politics
being forced into second place by the interest manifested in these
important affairs, and while members of the hunting set are chasing
the aniseed bag and the foot ball enthusiasts are chasing the
pigskin, the young men and women of society are industriously
chasing wedding presents; so that altogether the social season may
be said to be quite active.
