performance, in two operalogues. This
form of concert is now in Topeka. and
is said to be extremely interesting. An

Mr. Hubbard is now on his way to
New York from California, and will be
in Topeka Monday, May 22. It is that
circumstance that makes it possible
for the musie department to procure
him for that date.
Mr. Hubbard was formerly musical
editor of the Chicago Tribune and was
editor in chief of the American En
cylopedia ad History of Music The
pianist with him will be Mr. Claud
Gotthelf, who was, for four years, with
Joseffy, and afterwards with Lhe
vinne. Among the good pictures that are
owned by Topeka people are two in
the possession of Mrs. W. W. Man
speaker, who is now living in Tyler
street. One of the vanvases is called
"The Feast in the House of the Le
vite," and was produced from the fa
mous Veronese painting. This picture
of Mrs. Man speaker's is an ancient and
excellent production from the master
piece. It was recently cleaned by Mr.
Sullivan, who found the canvas in four
pieces, which fixes its date sla very
old, having been made before can-
vases were woven large enough for so
big a picture. The picture is now
hung in the T. W. C. A., as Mrs. Man
speaker no longer has a wall suita-bte
for so big a painting. It Is in rich,
dark colors, treating the subject of the
feast iriven by Simon for the Lord and
The picture was bought ir. Italy a
good many years ago by Mr. Theo
dore Curran. formerly of Topeka. It
was placed in the house then owned by
the Curran's, at Tenth and Harrison
street, and the Manspeaker family ac
quired the picture when they bought
the house, which was afterward known
as the Manspeaker house. The price
paid for it by Mr. Curran is said to
have been It. 000.
A second valuable picture owned by
Mrs. Manspeaker Is a painting called
The Cheveller." and was painted by
C. E. Curran. a nephew of Theodora

considerable note. The picture is a '
fanciful portrait of a French muske- '

A mild souled man of Kansas City
who has friends in Topeka, wai in
town this week with his brand new
touring car that is as fleet as the
wind. This Kansas City , man has al
ways heretofore driven slow old cars
that chugged along at a rate that had
no resemblance to speed whatever.
But. as I say, he came to Topeka in
his fine machine and took some of his
friends for a drive. A Topeka man
took his car also, dividing the family
between the two autoe. They started
out West Sixth at the top notch of
hurry. The houses flew past so quick
ly that the Topeka family could
scarcely recognize them. Presently
they heard the sound of a motorcy
cle close behind them, and a pop-pop
cop called upon them to hait. Did
tliey halt? Not exactly. That Kan
sas City car Just added a little more
speed. Presently the motorcycle
caught up and again commanded the
driver to stop. He stopped Just to
show how Quickly he could manage
the beautiful bird. "Did you know
you were speeding?" asked the po
liceman. "Sure, I did, my man."
"How fast were you going?" angrily
demanded the officer. "Just as fast
as ever I could," smiled the visitor.
"Well, you're pinched," replied the
motorcycle man. "Thank you, thank
you." answered the K- C. speeder.
Come along to the police station,"
the cop ordered. "Really, you honor
me," said the man. "Where is your
station, and will you ride with us'"
and then he extended to the rest or
the crowd an invitation to share his
Elory with him.
They made good time to the station
ar.d the visitor paid his fine with evi
dent cheerfulness, not to say joyoiis
ress. His friends here are beginning
to thick he may develop a real wild
streak, and get to carrying matches
and staying out till o'clock.
After the little escapade in police
cou-t. the visitor took his friends to a
little dinner down at the National. As
the dessert was being served, this
"devilish" fast driver sent a little note

ineffable peace on his features.
The demand of entertainers this
season is all for something new. No
more garden parties Just because it
is spring, and the old, conventional
way of setting up a few vases of roses
and fern will not do at alL Friday
night the girls of the Kappa Kappa
Chi sorority of Washburn gave a
party that for newness left everything
else attempted this year in the shade.
Theirs was a Spanish party, and was
given at Kellam's, a hall that lends
itself well to various decorative effects.
The dance hall represented an an
cient patio,- copied from the old Moor
ish designs, with its deep strain of
Orientalism. On all sides of the patio
was a wide esplanade, with hedes of
roses and fragrant herbs. In front
of the patio was a stage set with
flowers and a fountain. Gilded col
umns surrounded the portico, and ar
cades led out from the esplanade. An
archway opened to the Court of the
Lions, which was screened by lattice
work and lighted by candles. There
were growing plants and alabaster ba
sins in the supper room. Little Span

march. The hat and cape will be pro
vided by the Chicago women at & cost
of 25 cents each. This provision is
made so that the costumes wilt be
uniform. The women in the Kansas
section will also wear, sunflowers.
Every band in Chicago will play for
the parade, and the Kansas women
