m w (m SOCIAL GOSSIP. Saturday afternoon was pleasant and the roads were good. As early as half past three o'clock the young people whom Matteon Baldwin had invited 1o go out and formally open the Meadow Brook lodge, began to drive out to the Baldwin farm. By six o'clock there was gathered together as jolly a crowd of young people as one could wish for. There were about thirty in the party. The picnic spirit was on. Convention was left at home, congeniality taking its place. The young ladies brought ham pers of delicious lunch, and the long table in the dining room was soon tilled with baskets. Meanwhile the more energetic of the young men, among whom were George Woods, Riy Welch, Lew Marshall, Charlie Burr, Joe Mallalieu and Will Meyer, got out on the greensward and tossed ball and pitched horse shoes, alias quoits, and otherwise developed muscle and pers piration. Frank Zehrung, with that honest and outspoken disinclination for hard and unnecessary manuel labor, re mained about th...

They play in it and with it all day long and to walk in a procession with a band of music at the boid and banners waving in front of and behind them was better than playing soldier with a make believe band. Some of the crowd who lined the streets were not in the children's confidence and they pitied them with "Just look at those poor little things etc. Children like being looked at.

Because of her last visit there the Duke of Orleans was confined to hiB room for eight days in hunting season, and dur ing her stay carefully avoided all public resorts. If this thing keeps up Melba will be forbidden to enter English ports and exiled like poor Modjeska. 1 am Borry for the Duke, tie must be a gentleman of a susceptible and roman tic temperamant to die so hard, and the Busceptibles are always to be pitied. But there are a few things in this world which to have had and lost are quite enough to keep the Duke of Orleans indoors a week, even in hunting Beason. So Julia Arthur will be with us this winter and will probably receive the recognition which was denied her beforo she went to London.

Chickens are not adept at disinterested affection any more than the rest of us. Olive Schriner colored her thrilling novel "The African Farm" with the lucid Eentence, "The chickens were wiser.'' They certainly are not foolish enough to cherish a dis interested passion for Calve. Besides, Calve, if it were not for your voice and the corn, why in the name of goodness should either we or the chickens love you for your temper? Calve, in a wild letter to a friend in Paris said she wished she need never re turn to the stagt but could spend all her life warbling the great master among her chickens.

THE COURIER. i THE THEATRES ) tss It is strange that men will write bur lesques when they might write come dies, and that they prefer to build upon the sand when the rocks are so many that one is always in danger of stump ing hiB toe on them. "Iho Politician" is a good farce, much better than the run of them, but the same material re fined and dignified by a little of that saving quality, the truth, would have made a comedy that would out draw and out live all the farces of the generation. Suppose, for instance that something of the tone and quality of "l'he Senator" were given to it. Suppo60 that General Limber were made a possible character, a fellow consideiably warped by the elevating methods of nineteenth century politics, but with humanity enough left to fall in love right in the middle of an exciting campaign; a humorist who dabbled in corruption with a sort of cynical indifference and an artistic ap preciation of the situation, lie might have been quite a man under those cir...

The holder of a railroad ticket ma' take along with him a trunk weighing a hundred and fifty pounds, but if he has no trunk and wants to take along instead a bicycle weighing one-fifth as much he must pay extra for it. Under the existing conditions this is an unjust discrimination, and it is time we of the League of American Wheel men took the matter up in earnest, with a view to the tinal settlement of the question. The Bulletin does not think it neces sary to put this in tho form of antagon ism to the railroads, or that it need be considered by tho wheelmen as some thing demanded for their benefit at the expense of the railroads. It should be looked upon rather as a mutually beneficial arrangement, for we fully believe it would be for the interest of any railroad to carry wheels free when the wheelman has no other baggage. It is true that many wheelmen now ride on trains and take along wheels e...

The children of a sectiou foreman grow up at the section house and learn to help the old folks. The girl learns to cook for the gang of workmen and the boy learns to do railroad work. When they are grown up the girl marries some other foreman's son and the boy does the opposite and so the race of section foremen is perpetuated. The queen did all of this except getting married. She learned how to manage the kitchen and to make ...
