Socially the week may be quite adequately J summed up In Just two words the opera. It haa been a week to look back upon; to make, future, comparisons by and that so ciety In general Is pleased to have In the. ! past rather than In prospect. Not that those two gala nights were all; there were a few other things, but In the mnln they win m trn,ii'-u nir '" " v c. ...... of the opera guests or were Incidental to the one event. Everybody has had guests. 6oclety has been deluged with friends from . near and far that hnvi helped to make It one of those delightfully tiresome seasons Viaf tiiHncr a antlvflnd sfs-h whenever one contemplates It. Altogether It has been a most acceptable bleak In the Lenten calm that will help the restless ones over the remaining weeks of enforced quiet. Thla week's calendar Is decidedly promising In a small way. considering. Of course, ther are a few things being announced ana it is looKea upon as ODiigarory among giieeis to refrain from relating details nowadays. Teople are not supposed to remember that there were Just enough dinner guests to make up a few tables of bridge or that a few good friends happened to meet some place at somebody's house and dance just for the sake of a change from bridge. The constitution of one of the social clubs that enrolls a score of young ma trons, prospective brides and a few, very few, others, recently accomplished the reconciliation of two young women whose estrangement had been a matter of regret to their many friends and the cause of many an embarrassing little, episode In their "set" for more than two years. Doth had been Invited to Join the club, but neither knew of the other's invita tion until they had become members. To jgc. back to the constitution; It provides that "any member who ahall fail In cour tesy to another member shall apologise to that member before another meeting of the club or be prepared to reelgn her membership by that time." Of course, these two young women could not arrange a truce on club days nor could either tiring herself to "speak first," and certainly neither was willing to apologise for not speaking should they chance to meet at the same table. It was awfully awkward. But the rule was Inflexible, and when, In ' the course of the game, they found them selves sitting opposite, they accepted the situation with a smile and both are still members of the club. She was at the opera Wednesday even ing with some of the other Lincoln fash ionables; she had come up In the morn ing and had been "trotting around" all day hunting hats and wearing her heavy coat to cover up her short-sleeved bodice. This much she announced aa she removed the coat and then a charming creation of aof-. straw, bright ribbons and flowers which she held up with a satisfied smilo for the Inspection of her friends. "I must tell you ubout It," she chatted on to her Bore Immediate neighbors. "It's from Parte. I saw the maker's mark In It when f tout-tit it; that's why I took It, even If It did cost me $6 extra. Well, after I got back to the hotel and went to put It on I found that that mark had been re moved and I Just went straight back over there and told the saleswoman that I wanted that mark. I found It and I had her sew It back In the hat. It cost me S3 and I thought I might as well have something to show that my hat came from Paris."
