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.
Mr. and Mrs. Falkiner left at 8:43 for
a ten days' trip to Memphis and Bir
mingham, and on their return will live
at the Blower house. They will be at
home to their friends after November 15.

Burprisa to his Topeka friends.
A Pleasant Affair.
Mrs. D L. Lakin gave a pleasant lit
tle company Wednesday evening, com
plimentary to her guest, Mrs. Tuffts, of

C A MPBELL CAUGH T.
Wrote Letter Showing Ho is Working
With Republicans.
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.

" Hod " Lawrence Shared Hon
ors With the Comedian.
The Topeka Actor lleeeires a
Tremendous Oration.
HE MAKES A SPEECH.
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-

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.

Ameer" ia no exception to the rule. The
production is magnificent. 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.

he was talking about is a mystery but

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

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.
