Society for the past six days, while
aot quiescent, was not exactly rampant.
There were several very swell and
beautiful receptions, including those of
Mrs. Winter and Mr. and Mrs. Shepley,

given by social organization?, but there
was nothing to set society agog. Wed
dings, too, were quite numerous, but
none were of the brilliant order. The
leading social organizations, notably
the Nushkas, are doing tlieir shnre to
ward contributing to social well being,
and the German club bas no end of en-
Joyuient at its weekly assemblies.

Rive a sociable on next Wednesday
evening at the residence of Miss Annie
McCrea for the benefit of the society's
treasury. It has been some time since
the young ladies of this organization
have called upon the public for any
favors and it is honed that an appreci
ation of this fact will be manifested by
a large atteudance on Wednesday even
ing. The principal feature of the en
tertainment will be an "art gallery."
This will be supplemented by music,
recitations and refreshments. A pleas
ant time is guaranteed and a cordial In
vitation is extended to all.
The Chautauqua circle met, as an
nounced Monday evening, at the resl-r
uence of Mrs. A. A. Clark. The pro
gramme was short but intensely inter
eating, most of the time being devoted
to a lively discussion of the advisability
of the state having complete control of
the railways. There was quite a di
vergence of opinion, and no satisfactory
conclusion was reached, but the discus
sion brought out some rather pro
nounced ideas on both sides, aud was
highly entertaining. The programme
closed with a song by Mrs. G. H. Haz
zard, which was rendered in her most
acceptable mannerand heartily enjoyed.
The circle will meet with Mrs. Hazzard
Monday evening.
The announcement of the lecture to
be given Tuesday evening at the Peo
ple's church by ex-Gov. St. John has
aroused quite a liyeiy enthusiasm in the
ranks of the prohibiticuists of Hamline.
As a result a large party, comprised of
members of the Prohibition club and
others, will go down to hear him Tues
day evening.
The Choral club, having finished its
arduous labors in connection witn the
Cliristnias festivities, is now at work
practicing "The Haymakers," which is
to be given as soon as possible. The
club is doing very good work, aud "The
Haymakers" promises to be quite a
musical treat to the people of Hamline.

COLLEGE ITEMS.
The debate at the meeting of the
Amphiclyins. on Friday evening, was
unusually animated and lively. The
question was: "Resolved. That Sunday
labor should be prohibited," led by Mr.
Lord on the affirmative, with Mr. Wai
lace on the other side. Nearly all the
gentlemen took part in the discussion,
and the decission was rendered in favor
of the affirmative. The mandoline and
guitar duett by the Messrs. Norton was
a novel feature of the programme,
whose appreciation was evident from
the hearty encore it called torth. The
Amphiclyins rather pride themselves
on their music, and justly, .too, for they
give a good deal of attention to study in
that line, and have among their number
some of the very best musical talent in
the college.
Although most of the students are
back ready for work, a goodly number
of them are unable to enter upon their
school duties on account of la grippe.
Indeed, as one of the young ladies put
it, "the lad es' hall is turned into a
regular hospital," so many of the int
mates are the victims of the influenza.
There are no serious cases, however,
atrl it will not be long before every
body is well again, aud things will go
on quite as before.
There was a unique sleighing party
on Saturday evening. It was composed
of sixteen ladies and not a man among
them except the staid old driver. They
drove down to St. Paul, and had, as the
girls expressed it, "a perfectly jolly
time." The young ladies were the

WOMAN may be fond
pf lace— she ought to be
if she isn't, for it is a
fondness that is to be
commended — and lace
is something that is be
wining to every woman.
Made into a ruffle or
folded lightly about the
neck it 6oftens the
plainest face and im
proves the harshest
complexion. But be
sause it ts becoming,
says the New York
Herald, is no reason
why it should be worn
with every gown and
an all occasions. There
are times when it should
be worn and times
when it should not be
worn, and, although
ace is extremely fash
ionable just now, it
annst not be worn at
;hroat or wrists in the
street. This is Dame Fashion's Hat, and
is absolute. And the same fiat has gone
forth regarding the linen collar and
cuffs. They are obsolete, and all such
abominations as stiff and starched linen
are banished from the wardrobe of
every styiisli woman of to-day.
