I had met him at a ball and afterwards he had called at my home. I wanted to send him my card but doubted if my acquaintance with him, which was of the most casual kind, warranted me in doing so. The circumstances that kept me at the hotel for a week waiting for my mother and aunt were commonplace enongh but tiresome. I grew tired of walking about. I wanted some body to listen while I said how lovely things were. I did not send him my card and spent a very dull week in consequence. Was I too scrupulous? Jessie B.

THE COURIER. S99vvS8'88999999' THE THEATRES fVffffQ) m m M M "The 8uwanee River" may be a mus ical farce, but it is really only another form of negro minstrels. Its theme is the evolution of the negro and it beginB with him in his native jungle. It takes him all the way from the Zulu war dance to the cake walk. The first act is laid in Africa among the negroes as nature made them, the second on the Suwanee River among the e laves, and the third among the emancipated colored citizens in New York. The negro is a natural comedian. If he is let alone he dances well, for his instinct of time is perfect, and he sings well, for he has a quick ear for anything ic the shape of an air and his voice is generally pleasant to listen to. But if you go to cultivating him ten to one you spoil him. You make him rigid and self conscious and he loses all the catchy little tricks that he learned by himself. There are a few of the negroes in this "Afro-American" farce who are simple and natural, but the...

THE COURIER. 0000909000000 A TOUCH OF HIGH LIFE oo (Writtea for The Courier.) I say high life because we were camp ed at Ragtown; and Ragtown, nestled up close to the backbone of Terry's Peak, is the highest mining camp in the Black Hills. Our camp, with its equip ment of hobos and implements of construction, was the long expected track-laying outfit on the Speartish extension. The road-bed was 60 nearly completed that the contractors would be able to keep out of the way, and so the track machine had been ordered out and we were busy putting down ties and rails at the rate of three-quarters of a mile every day. In coming seven miles from the junction at Englewood the track climbs nearly fifteen hundred feet and from the summit crest just beyond Ragtown it drops over four thousand feet before it swings into Spearfish. twenty-four miles away. There is a big rock tilted up on edge jtwt at the crown tip of the hill where two or three of us used to go and sit for an hour or more after su...

For it is the proper kind of stuff. Its democracy Is not diluted. It has no silver strain. It Is the double distilled essence of bourbontsm. The tone of the Herald rings true to the tune of Clevelandism. When Major J. D. Calhoun died in the ditch, with Congressman "V. J. Bryan up on the bank, a few years ago, the Herald's future came to a dead halt. Of course Calhoun was all there was to the Herald, and when the Major left us and went to Florida, the paper that he left behind was like the Bible with the old and new testaments omitted. It struggled on for awhile in silence, and then the populists got hold of it. Death came agalloplng as a matter of course.

THB COURIER. '4 A Q g NOTES AND QUERIES 5 oooooooooooooo Is it proper to prolong an informal ovening rail after ten o'clock and doe it mako any difference as to the, time limit whero you feel quite sure the parents are not as cordial to jou as they might boT A. F. M. Ten o'clock is late enough if you came at eight. Two hours of conver sation, even when broken by laughter and glances, is enough to set the young lady casting about in her mind for something to say to you next. It is policy for you, young man, if you have reason to think the parents do not approve of you, to conform exactly to their wishes. Evasions and overlong lingering are apt to arouse their im patience. In nine cases out of ten the parents are right and their opposition to an aspirant to their daughter's hand, inevitably fatal to his hopes. Where there are no dissenting circumstances like those mentioned by A. F. M. the length of the call depends on the ex tent of the young man's oquaintance with the young lady, hi...

THE COURIER. t:. r ti i I LI I MAN AND WOMAN ! ! X a ntroanm j 1 Sdqooooooooooo ooooooooooc A correspondent in Grand Island seads a query that brings up a question kBg debated. A number of persons have been asked to answer it, and their replies with the query are given below . Does not the Bible teach that God created woman subject to anil subordinate to man and glory of God and woman is it not a dangerous presamption in her to claim to be his equal? Bible Student. The Bible docs not teach that God created woman to be subordinate or subject to man. It does teach that in the beginning the animal designated as man was of both sexes. It was male and female and possessed the power of procreation and reproduction. It is tinction between the salvation of men and of women. Bishop Newman says Be gave to a woman the key note of His whole philosophy when He said to the woman taken in adultery "Neither do I condemn thee. Go, and sin no more." Paul, who is always quoted as auth ority on wives a...

THE COURIER. O0CO3O8OOOOO O OOOOOOOC( THE FINE ARTS Br W. E. Chancellor oooooooooooc One incident in the great reform in education is the elevation of the fine arts to their rightful place. The old Greeks classed all their exercises under the two heads of music and gymnastics; music included the subjects of the mind, gymnastics included the training of the body. Music as the special art was studied as a means of expressing the emotioBs of the soul. The fine arts were not included as essentials. The education thus provided mede the upper class Greeks, whoaloae took part iu the wonderful Greek civilization, in many ways the cleverest, most cultured people the world baa ever known. But even the Greeks failed substantially in the work of education, for they failed of universal education and they failed of useful education. The scholars of the Renaissance brought back aaany of the Greek ideals. But the monkish influence was so strong that eveu the subordinate place the Greeks gave the fi...
