Marriage of Miss Lillian 31c Far land is Solemnized. She Becomes the Bride of Mr. Lee C. Forbes. WEDDING WAS LARGE. Miss Martha Payne and Mr. W. It. Falkiner Wedded. Notes of a Social and Personal Nature. About two hundred guests assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. X. Mc Farland at 1100 Harrison street Wed nesday evening to witness the marriage of their daughter Lillian, to Mr. Lee Clinton Forbes, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Forbes. Even a June wedding can not rival an October wedding1 for beauty; though the profusion of roses and other blossoms are lacking;, the vines and luxuriant autumn foliage offer so many possibil ities for artistic decorating and in this instance they were fully developed. Trailing vines and luxuriant palms and ferns formed the foundation of the dec orations in all of the rooni3. In the par lor they weresupplemented with feathery white chrysanthemums, while red dahlias formed a striking contrast to the vivid green in the library. In the dining room across the hall a huge bowl of brilliant salvia In the center of the table gave the needed bit of color to the green. The table was placed in front of the grate, and streamers of white ribbon twined with asparagus fern extended to the ceiling. Refreshments were served here during the evening. The ceremony was performed at nine o'clock and was as impressive as it was simple. Rev. J. B. McAfee, grandfather of Mr. Forbes, officiated. Miss Celeste Nellis who has just returned from Eu rope played the Mendelssohn wedding march as the bridal party entered. Katherine and Bruce McFarland. sister and brother of the bride, entered first, carrying the white satin ribbons which outlined a pathway for the bridal party and proceeded, one to each side of the broad bay window. The windows were all hung with white lace curtains fes tooned with trailing green vines, and overhead was a frieze of foliage. Following the ribbon bearers were the bridesmaids. Miss Marie Brooks and Miss Mary Hambleton, Miss Fannie Sib ley and Miss Fe Waters. Mrs. Emily Elliott and Miss Anna Nellis, and Miss Pearl McFarland, the maid of honor, preceded the bride and groom. A pretty custom was introduced of having no men attendants and the pretty girls in their party gowns, formed in a half circle about the bridal couple, presented a charming picture. The bride was charming in a costume of white silk mull; the sweeping skirt had a deep knife pleating about the bot tom and above this, narrow pleatings were arranged in overskirt effect. The bodice had a shirred yoke and sleeves; in the front several narrow knife pleat ings were arranged in bertha eff ect, and the yoke was outlined with a twist of white satin and the stock and belt were also of white satin. She carried an armful of bride roses and her veil was fastened with a cluster of orange blos soms. Each one of the attendants wore a dif ferent colored gown and- the combina tion of soft pastel shades was exquisite ly pretty. Miss Elliott was in pink; Miss Waters, blue: Miss Nellis, old rose veiled in white: Miss Haznnleton, lavender; Miss Sibley, yellow: Miss McFarland, blue, and Miss Brooks, pale green. All carried armfuls of American Beauty roses. Miss Marie Norton's violin solo, Thome's "Simple Confession," during the ceremony, added to the impressive ness of the occasion. The guests were received by Mr. and Mrs. McFarland and Mr. and Mrs. Forbes. Mrs. McFarland wore a hand some costume of black brocade satin with yoke and sleeves of black lace. Mrs Forbes was in gray silk combined with white. Miss Nellis wore a handsome Paris evening gown of white silk veiled in white chiffon heavily appliqued with lace. In one of the upstairs rooms were ar ranged the presents which were both numerous and elegant. Punch was served in the upper hail during the eve ning. Mr. and Mrs. Forbes, who are two of Topeka s most popular young people, have lived in Topeka all of their lives and went through school together, both graduating from the high echoed in the class of lSifi. Mr. Forbes is engaged in business with his father. They will be at home to their friends after November 15, at SIS West Eighth avenue. A num ber of out of town guests were present. Falkiaer-Payne. A quiet but very pretty wedding Wednesday evening was that of Miss Martha Payne and Mr. W. ft. Falkiner. which took place at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. B. T. Payee, on To peka avenue. There were about forty five guests present and the arrange ments, though simple, were perfect in detail. The Aeolian Mandolin club was sta tioned in the hali behind a profusion of palms and blooming plants, and a few minutes after 6:80. as the hands of the clock were traveling upward, the bridal chorus from Lohengrin was sounded, and Miss Payne and Mr. Falkiner en tered. They were met in front cf the bow window by Rev. F. W. Emerson, who perform! the ceremony. A pretty and novel feature of the ceremony was the exchange of rings. After Mr. Falki ner had slipped the ring upon the finger of his bride she placed the counterpart upon his finger. During tha cerejnony the mandolin club played Thome's "Simple Confession." The bride wore her traveling costume, which was a becoming affair of blue Venetian cloth, tailor made, the front of the bodice trimmed with several rows of gold buttons. She carried an armful of American Beauty roses. After the ceremony she threw her bouquet; the roses scattered and were caught by a number of her friends, though the bulk of them fell to Miss Nelle Wetherholt. Tha rooms were all prettily decorated, the parlors in palms, ferns, La France rcses and quantities of green foliage. In the dining room, where a two-course supper was served, the decorations were green and white. On the table was a square of drawn work scattered over with graceful sprays of asparagus fern. A mirror plateau in the center reflected a high vase of white chrysanthemums. The guests were received by Mrs. Payne. Mrs. Mary Falkiner of Detroit, Mr. and Mrs. S. F. Fulton of Kansas City, and Miss Annia Payne, A great many beautiful presents were received by Mr. and Mrs. Falkiner. They were arranged in one of the up stairs rooms.

The following self-explanatory letter has been made public by the Democratic state committee at the Kansaa City headquarters : Oxford, Kan., Oct. 22, 1900. Chairman Middle of the Road Populist State Committee, Lincoln, Neb. Dear Sir: I am the Populist nominee for congress in the Seventh congression al district of Kansas. But I am not making the race. I resigned the nomina tion, which I had received unanimously because the Democrats, who had but one vote in six fusion votes, persisted in nominating a Democrat and refused to indorse me, or give me their support, be cause I was a Populist. I have been engaged for the last three weeks in making Populist Bpeeches in this district against the Democratic par ty, which I charge with a conspiracy to destroy the People's party, and advising Populists to vote the Republican ticket as the only salvation for our party. I am billed to speak every day until elec tion, but some prominent Republicans think I could do some very good work by making two or three speeches in your state under the direction of your com mittee. I am w illing to do so, providing you desire me to in Lincoln and one or two other large places. The first speech I made was in Wichita, of which I am informed the state Republican commit tee has published 40,000 for distribution in this state. If you are interested in the matter, and will write the Republican state com mittee at Topeka, they will send you a copy of this speech, and w-ill tell you who I am and what I can do. I should like to make speeches for the Populists and against the Democrats and Demo cratic Populists in your state, and point out that to save the Populist party De mocracy must be knocked out. I should like to speak about the first three days in November or the last two of the three, speaking in Lincoln on Saturday. November 3, at night. The fusion Populists of this state are much outraged at my course and speeches, but hundreds of the loyal Pop ulists of this state are going to vote for McKinley and give this state to him by 4O,Oo0. We have no middle of the road ticket here. Please let me hear from you at once. Respectfully, I. P. CAMPBELL. Address Wichita, Kan. To Cure Dyspepsia and Indigestion. Take Bex Dyspepsia Tablets.

Had Thought He Wasn't Appre ciated at Home. " The Ameer " Breaks the Rec ord at the Crawford. The largest audience that has crowd ed into a Topeka opera house, In years saw Frank Daniels in "The Ameer" at Crawford's last night. The house record was made by Booth and Barrett ten years ago. when seata sold from one to four dollars, and the sale amounted to t2,S0Q, Since, then Alice Nielsen, In 'The Fortune Teller," made a record with seats from $2 down, by playing to Eol Smith Russell. In "A Bachelor's Romance," two years ago, played to $1,142, at prices ranging from Jl.&O down. Frank Daniels played last night at prices ranging from $1.50 to 50 cents, and the receipts amounted to $1,265. Daniels' previous houses in Topeka have netted $700 and $S00. Every seat in the house was sold be fore the doors were opened for the per- i A . -' As FRANK DANIBLS. formance. and all the extra seats that could be placed in the house were taken. A bench in a window went for $3. The sale of standing room was stopped as the house was crowded. A man with two) tickets he wished to dispose of had no trouble in exchanging them for $5. The reason of the record-breaking au dience was that Frank Daniels and his principals are all favorite in Topeka, combined with the fact that Howard 8. Lawrence was to sing the leading tenor part of "Captain Ralph Winston," of the British guards. His first appearance be fore the audience brought him a round of applause that would have pleased a veteran actor, but during the second act he received an ovation. As captain of the guards he sang the solo part to "Soldiers All," and the chorus as the guards marched and countermarched in a series of well executed movements. At the clese of the song he marched away with his fair soldiers. The ap plause came from every corner of the house. The guards marched across the stage again, singing the refrain, but Lawrence did not appear. There was even more applause. The army marched across the stage a half dosen times. The applause did not subside. Then Mr. Lawrence stepped to the stage, doffed his white helmet and disappeared. The audience was determined. Again he stepped forward and bowed. All this time a young man was standing by the front of the stage holding a wreath of roses. He shook them at Mr. Lawrence several times, laid them on the stage, and then picked them up and held them again. He finally became tired of the job and tumbled them onto the stage in a heap and retired. The encore con tinued. "HOD" LAWRENCE'S SPEECH. Mr. Lawrence was forced to do some thing to quell the uproar. He stepped to the? center of the stage for a speech. His friends in the audience knew that it must be a trying moment to him. They hoped that he would be eQUal to the occasion. "This is the happiest moment of my life." said the young actor in a clear voice that showed no sign of embarrassment. "I wish I could reach out over the footlights and shake vou all by the hand." He was getting along first rate. "I feel much better coming back to Topeka than when I went away. For when I left I thought you did not appreciate my budding genius." Such a frank confession was good to hear, and the audience laughed. Then in a very neat manner he an nounced that he was not as yet a full fledged principal, and that by the kind ness of the management and Mr. How ard, the tenor, he had been allowed to appear before hla Topeka friands In the tenor part. Then, Just like a star who had been making curtain speeches for years, he passed a little compliment over the footlights by saying that "I am known in the company as 'Topeka' that is my nickname. I received It be cause everywhere we go we meet To peka people, and the members of the company have often remarked that To peka people are so intelligent." Mr. Lawrence pleaded for Topekans to en courage any other "budding genius" thev might find. Mr. Daniels should start a "correspond ence school of acting." He probably can not quit the part of "IffEe Khan, Ameer of Afghanistan." to open a sta tionary school, but he could trave-1 around the country and keep in touch with his pupiis by means of the mails. He has proven himself a competent in structor. "Hod" Lawrence Is an ex ample. He has been with Daniels but about a year, but in that time he has improved in voice and acquired a stage appearance that is pleasing. As the captain of the English guards he ap peared as if the part had been written for him. He sang his first solo. "When Love is True," in a very pleasing man ner and with excellent expression. Mr. Lawrence and Miss Helen Redmond, in the duet "Cupid will Guide." were well received. The opinion of the audience was that if Mr. Lawrence is not a full fledged principal he will be If he con tinues in Mr. Daniels' school, for Miss Norma. Kopp and Miss Helen Redmond, two of the principals, started in the chorus with Mr. Daniels. There was another Topekan in the company. Miss Mabel Day, a member of the chorus. Another Kansan with the company is Miss Julia Mclnerney, from Abilene, whose stage name is Julia Francis. Several Abilene people attend ed the performance. MR.

The stace i settings and the costumes, as "Iffe , Khan" would say, seem to be "the lim- j it." Some people never imagined that i the stage at Crawford's could hold the amount f splendor shswn in the thir.l act. Another point of merit in the com pany ia the chorus. A handsomer bevy cf chorus girls has never been seen In Topeka. And Daniels Is funny. Funny in JuBt the same way that he was In "The Wia trd of the Kile" and "The Idol's Eye." When In the last act he dons a costume that is the counterpart of tha court fool's it seems for a moment as if he was about to fall back upon the ludic rous situations made possible by a dou ble as was the case in his first success, "Little Puck." The comic operas change but Daniels g-oes on Just the same, lifting his eye brows, using some simple little by-play over and over as a laugh provoker, doinj those same little dance steps, making use of Borne one as a foil and singing comic songs and always making: a few funny remarks not In th part that brings the laush to the members of thd company and to himself as well. Dan iels always seems to be having such a jolly good time when he ia goifiit through his lines. This year his foii is William Corliss as "Crackasmite," the court jester who tried time and again to crack a joke that would amuse the "Ameer" but that lordly ruler of Af ghanistan refused to laugh and remind ed him when he tried to be funny that he mierht return to his native heath and that "your ship sails Wednesday." Then the Jester tried for honors by reciting-; "When a man is In love with a turtle dove, His one wish is to mate her. He says his love for her is greater. But she says she has seen a nutmeg grater." Then "Iffe Khan" looked serious. "Re member, McGuire." said he, addressing the jester, "your ship sails Wednesday.' But Corliss made good his attempt at fun, with the audience at least, when he sanp "In Old Ben Franklin's Day." the wittirst topical song that has been heard in Topeka for a long time. Miss Kupp's "Poster Girl" song gave her about the only chance to distinguish herself. Kate Uart, the contralto of the com pany and Miss Helen Redmond and Miss Norma Kopp have been principals with the Daniels companies for several sea sons and heretofore had much to do with the success of the piece but in "The Ameer' their parts are noticeably insig nificant. It is truly a Daniels' piece. It does looks a little strange when Ow en Westford, as the "Lord Chamber lain," and Daniels and the jester do the "Continuous Performance" song for the court ladies, the soldiers and attendants to indulge in a cake walk but probably everything goes in Cabul. The principals were called before the curtain after the second act and Mr. Daniels could quiet the audience only by a curtain speech. It was funnier than his part in the piece. What he eaid nobody knows and what he was talking about is a mystery but he used words as long as the laughs they brought and he stopped Just in time, as he said, "to put on his beauti ful costume" far the last act SENSIBLE NEW RULE. With the Daniels performance a new rule went Into effect at Crawford's op era house. The rule that no one will be seated after the rise of the curtain for the first act until the end of the act. The rule was rigidly observed last night and those who were seated before the curtain went up were not annoyed by thos being seated who came late. One rule or custom waa not observed by ail last night. For several seasons it has been at least the custom if not the rule for ladies to remove their hats. The management of the house calls attention on the programme to the fact that all can see better if ladies wili remove their hats. As the house was crowded it was dimcuit for those in poor seat? to secure a good view of ihe suase and EDITION OF 1900 BEAUTIFUL NEW STAMPED BINDINGS. but are Mucti More practical IT MEANS TO HAVE AT YOUR INSTANT COM COMPLETE AND VALUABLE INFORMATION ABOUT EVERYTHING. 4 'tt-f !

The management should request those who do not observe the rule to remove their hats. REALISTIC LOVE SCENE. "Constance" and "Ralph Winston" were ideal lovers and carried the part so well that a few young ladies in the audience, at hast, wondered. Ileln Redmond was "Constance" and Howard Lawrence was "Ralph Winston. " Usual ly another man is the lover, on the stage, but the part did not seem dis pleasing or unnatural to Mr. Lawrence. Perhaps Miss Redmond was particularly affectionate in the love scenes for the reason that the lover was making love to her before hundreds of people who know him. Anyway wh'n Mf. Lawrence placed his arms affectionately around her and drew hrr to him. fht laid her head on his shoulder, sighed contented ly and looked out of the corner of her eye at the audience. When her lover placed his arm around her and led her from the stage she took a parting side long glance at the audience and there was just suspicion of a wink. FORGED CHECKS.
