n rr-tfT-c rjr- vwt THEf.Onaf.il. ttfrtwrea B11I1 113 1211. SociAl GOSSIP mi Last week Lincoln society was en livened by a visit from Mr. Nat Mans field of Peoria, Illinois. He was ac companied by his friend. Mr. Chambers, of the same place. They visited Mr. Mansfield's sister, Mrs. Mosher, But the young men received so many in vitations to dine, to dance, to take high tea and to play cards that they were seldom "at home." Mr. Mansfield's manner is as gay as Donatello's was before he pushed Miriam's spectre over the precipice. A real, unforced gayety of spirit is a rare accident. Lincoln people showed Mr. Mansfield sunshine was welcome. Some of the members of last winter's German club will give a cotillon next Monday evening at the home of Mr. J. A. Buckstaff. These parties last win ter were delightful. The Courier hopes to have the pleasure of recording many of them this winter. "The king of France, with twenty thousand men, marched up the hill and then marched down again." Every S...

THE. COURIER. ft?- v y rJ- NOTES AND QUERIES COMPLIMENT THAT'S APPKECI ATED. How ought "wlU" and "shall" to be used? Some old grammars illustrated the Incorrect use of these words by the cry of the drowning Frenchman who Is sup posed to have exclaimed: "I will die, no one shall help me." Will expresses intention or decision, shall expresses a future possibility which the speaker does not Influence. However the use of these words by the best writers and speakers apparently follows different rules. For a presentation of the diffi culties of the subject see an article on shall and will In the last "Bookman." Is it correct to say Mrs. Professor Brown if the lady designated by this imposing title has no more claim to It than that she Is the wife of Professor Brown. I- N.

" r THE COURIER. NOTES AND COMMENT The Oriental, the big square wooden house on the corner of Thirteenth anil K streets. Is an Interesting survival of Lincoln's early days. It was built by a man named Tichenor and he called It th e "Tichenor house." When Mr. Townley bought It. It was called the Townley house. After some other changes It was rechrlstened "The Ori ental" and the gilt letters of the name reached across the whole eastern front. Why It was called the Oriental is as mysterious as the reason for nam ing the little millinery shop where brave Mrs. Blair did business for so long "The Palace of Fashion." It may have been because the big gilt letters three feet high composing the words Tich enor House can be made into Oriental with only an A and an L. lacking. They took the big II and leaned the two up rights together at the top and made the arm a little shorter for an A. and the carpenter made them an L.

There they become the chief, the only object de virtu in the room. The police of a college town are usually on the alert to prevent such lawlessness. The students of Harvard university, a few years ago, had driv en the police of Cambridge wild. The force had vowed that they would put any student they might catch Into Jail at the first opportunity. Nine or ten stu dents whom the police had had the most trouble with went to a barber and bought his pole. Then one night they noisily paraded the streets with it.

At the present time he is using, crutches as the of a recent accident in Hot Springs. These wooden accompaniments do not sweeten his temper. Were It not for the danger one is in of becoming liable for contempt one might say that the crutches and bodily effects of the Inju ry sustained by the judge render him peculiarly Irascible and totally unfit for the discharge of Judicial duties. One might say that naturally lacking the temperamental qualities that should distinguish a man who sits in s...

The fact that men whose names appear on the panel and special venire seemed to be wearing down a path between the government building and the headquarters of the railroad companies and other places may or may not be of significance. Here is a matter that perhaps some body will explain. At 10 o'clock Tues day, morning Judge Dundy appeared in court to receive the sealed verdict of the Jury in the case of P. F. Knowell against the Union Pacific railroad com pany. The verdict was handed in seal ed In a large envelope. Yet the Omaha Bee of the same morning published seven hours before, contained a full and acurate announcement of the ver dict.

There were two solos, one by Mr. Charles Hagenow, the Andante from De Berlot's violin con certo, the other a vocal solo by Mr. Ket tering, "From the Depths," by Cam pana. Mr. Charles Hagenow's solo two weeks ago showed fine tone and ex pression but called for a little command of rapidity and technique. DeBeriot's concerto made more demand and Mr. Hagenow gave an increased impres sion of technical skill and artistic con trol. The tone seemed a little thin, lacking In richness: It had, however, great sweetness and fine singing qual ity. In the more difficult passages the technique was very brilliant. Mr. Kettering's voice is the voice of a singer. It has faults, among which is the exasperatingly persistent tremolo of most Lincoln singers. But it does sing. It gides; It does not lik...
