But the book as a whole rings true and Philip Hale, the Journal ist, who acts as a sort of Greelc chorus between the book and reader never dis appoints one. The dialogue is of course unusually fino. sometimes clever, some times still cleverer by reason of its stupidity, the kind of talk one likes to hear and the talk ono is compelled to hear. It is the dialogue that mikes Mr. Hawkins' characters seem so alive, for it is talk with which reasonable and reasoning beings might address each other. Then his characters are able to hold sweet converse upon other subjects than the grand passion, which is an unusual accomplishment in characters. Tho book is full of that delicate cynicism that we met in "The Prisoner of Zenda" and the "Dolly Dialogues," and there is thesjme quiet gentlemanly way of telling the sad truth, as when...

THE COURIER. ! i- 15 '') W THE THEATRES I have Been "Faust" until J have sometimes longed for tho Damnation of Faust, tho musical one by Borleo of course. It is not tho model play of tho world to start on. It deals with prob lems too abstract, ton remote. Tho day has gono by when wo delighted in dramas dealing withtbo strifo between Gods and men. In days when there was a stronger belief in tho supernatural tho play was very well. As for its literary value, any English version produced in this country is bo utterly unlike Goethe's original that it is all lost. Then there is that spoonful gar den scene and that restive Fourth of July on the Brocken. Two such acts would slaughter any play. And there is Marguerite. I never yet saw a Marguerite whom I did not long and yearn to shake. I always want to lengthen her dresses and teach her to do her hair up on her head. It has always seem e J to me that there was not enough of her to make a re:pectable tragedy. There is in the play one great ...

. THE COURIER. s-J & NOTES AND QUERIES The editor of this column will feel personally grateful to any one who wil send her queries on any subject for this column. Does an Invitation to a wedding socially compel its recipient to present a gift to the prospective pair. F. C. Z. No. This question is a perplexing one. The present and the value of it depend on tho etrength of the friend ship between tho senders of tho invi tation and the invited one, the general condition of the money market in the year of their wedding and the par ticular and chronic condition of the friend's purse. An acknowledgement of the invitation (it is unnecessary to say) is imperative. In a Pullman car tlio gentlemen nro given n large dressing room with four or five, large bowls in it. Tho ladies go iu, when they can get in, to a small dressing room with ono bowl in it. This disproportion is undeserved. Woman's toilet is to man's as complication to simplicity, her care for her appearance as twenty to ono (tr...

wsmsmmmmm THE COURIER. if HISTORICAL No 2. The departure of the capital commis sion to bunt a site for Lincoln was a subject or merriment to tbe newspapers of tbe old capital. Not until after much travelling to and fro, looking at the sites through the length and breadth of tbe territory defined by the act, tbe commissioners on the 29th of July 1867 having issued their order locating Lin coln, in Lancaster county, on and about the site of Lancaster, its county seat, and commenced to survey the same into blocks, lots, reservations, streets and alleys, did the press of Omaha wake to the realities of the situation. There was music in tbe air. Tbe act provided that within ten days after its pa Rage the commissioners should quali fy and give bonds to be approved by a judge of the supreme court. The bonds wero to be filed with tbe state treasurer.

THE COURIER. KKCKKK&K POINTS IN POLITICS o ccccccccccc Whenever state politics is discussed thb question, Will Tom Majors really be a candidate for governor again? is pretty sure to be asked. I bavo heard of a great many things Mr. Majors is reported to have said in answer to this query; but I have yet to hear that ho has made a definite, positive, unequiv ocal statement that he will not bo, a candidate. Mr. Majors, whatever eleo may be said of him, is fairly endowed with intelligence, and it is difficult to. credit him with the ambition he is still supposed to entertain. It is doubtful if then is any further cousiderable political honor in store for Mr. Majors. His most sanguine admirers cannot see how he could possibly be nominated for governor again or elected. I doubt if Walt Seeley thinks it would be profita ble for him to again be a candidate. Mr. Majors has had political oppor tunities such as come to but few men. He has in him many elements of strength and popularity. Bu...

THR COURIER. a - ft -I, BRANCHING OUT. The Nebraska Hedge Co. is a now or ganization of Waterloo people organized under the laws of Iowa and formed for the purpose of controlling the hedge franchises and the Dayton system of hedge fences in tho State of Nebraska. The officers of the company are: President, C. O. Balliett; Secretary, C. W. Mullan; Treasurer, J. D. Easton. Col. John D. Fredd, who is one of the largest stockholders in the company, will look after the Nebraska business and leave for Lincoln soon. There is little need to say anything to readers in this county in regard to the hedge fences grown under the Dayton system. They themselves are the best possible proof of their excellence, and the fact that over a score of miles of these hedges have been established in this county this season shows how Blackhawk coun ty farmers appreciate them. The com pany that was formed here some time ago to push the hedge business here abouts, is composed of first-class busi ness men and fa...

Pt j S3k. pen of Marie Corelli is stiU'fecund and the fiction of Marion Crawford is still published there is no danger of our American actors becoming too intel ligent. It is strange that our actors fall into such drivelling and careless habits. It is a sort of custom and tradition in America that an actor must lose whatever scholarly tastes and habits he may have been born with. It is not necessary. Those foreign fellows manage to keep them all their lives, and yet they can act a bit. The crying need among American actors is not so much talent as intelligence; not so much intelligence as culture, knowledge of the things that are.
