Tiik sad Intelligence of Booth's illness comes like a thunderbolt to tho thousands of admir ers of this, tho greatest of our niodorn time tragedian. Tho great actor was strick en with paralysis WediieMlay evening in Rochester whllo playlug Othello. It is to bo sincerely hoped that his recovery w ill soon bo heralded throughout tho land for the Ameri can stage can ill ufford to loose such geulous as Booth. Tiik department in our socioty exchanges entitled "Doings of Society" are short nnd sweet. There seems to be a dearth In tho ovonU of tho charmed circles us spring ap proaches, nnd then again, Lent has had its effect on anmporing the spirit of festivities. Warm weathor being clow nt hand wo need not look for much indoor amusement and society will turn its attention to lawn tennis, la cross, Imll games, picnics and outing In general. Tiik prospectus for the Kobroskn Btato Fair of 1889 is on our table, and in reading Its pages ono is thoroughly convinced that tho coming show will bo tho show of all shows. Several iiewnames are noticed In tho list of of ficers who are noted for their push and enter prise, tho great rustler Robt. T. Furnas, how ever, still remaining secretary. Prellmonary arrangements as to transportation havo al ready been completod and will be announced in duo season. Everything points toward a phenomlnal success this year and wo may look for the largest attendance as well as the finest oxhlblt ever seen at any stato fair in the entire west. The Krtniny Call Is now locatod in its new quarters on P street. The new home of this ixtpular journal I larger nud bettor facili tates the transaction of its growing business than the one just vacated. It would not bo out of place, at this point, by tho way, to congratulate our friends, I)uhucll,Fairbroth er nud Cox on their success thus far achle ed and to complement them on the bright pros pects that now looms up Itefore them. Tho Call is a live taper and for an cntcrprlxlng evening chronicler of the djy news, such as a growing metropolis like Lincoln demand., it most certainly fills the bill and that too, very cleverly, S1MSING TIME FASHIONS.

Special Oorrepondence. New Yoiik, April -1. Much Iiub been said nlxnit Indies' lints In thentorn, and with icrfcct reason, nnd much also Itns boon snld nbout men going out between tlio ncta nftcr cloves nnd things, which Is just as roprrhenslbls n custom, and It Is with footings of aiuccro pIciiBUro that I can now nay tlmt both abuses nro In n fair way to bo alollshcd. Very fow whito women now wear largo hats to tho theatre, or if tlioy do tlioy havo tho graco to tako them off, and no gontloman now gets up and crowds his way along tho narrow spneo In front of tho pcoplo and after knocking every hat In roach ltKCKITION aOW'NS. awry and Btopplng on oveiy body's sorest corn nt Inst loaches tho aUlo and tiptoes his way out with squeaky now boots, to como back afterwards smelling of all tho spices on tho colander, with somo un known iii(intltic.H thrown in. So now that tho hat nulwinco nnd tho "sco a man" tmlxutiuo nro abated thcro It noth ing to hlntlor any porson'H onjoynut of tho play, except worrying over tho piol ability of the ushers dislocating their jaws with tho gum they chow. One imly cured her husband of going out be tween tho acts by talcing a big tod nppb with her nnd threatening to ont it right before every hotly. Recently Sorotds had its great anni versary convention nnd somo of tho meetings weio held in tho Madison Square theatre, and, I assuro you, there was somo lino dressing dono hy ladies who nro" supposed to have no ideas Ik yond culture, literature and suffrage. Tho theatre was so full of ladies that I don't know whero another ono could have found room, und strong minded women in tlier.odays are not all dawdv, nor ugly, nor old. Tho now president, ' Mrs. fc.lla Liletz Clymcr, is very pretty and graceful, with a charming manner, and she woro a bcrpcnt giocn faille with high puffed sleovcs, and a daiuty close bonnet with pink roses in it. Mis. Croly (Jennie Juno) wore n kind of bronrle greon faille dlrectoiro drebs, with three puffs to tho hIcovcs, and a bonnet of Binoko colored tullo with dolicato sprays in it. Sho is vico president now. Mrs. Julia Ward IIowo woro a black silk dross with whito laco around tho neck, and a black laco bonnet framing" her noblo old faco with Its crown of silver hair. Mrs. Todd, from Wichita, Kan., woro an "old Bago"gremi falllo francaiso, mado to fit her handsomo form beauti fully, and a bonnet of tlio somo Bhado in tullo, with bcarlot sage blossoms. Sho woro also a jabot of point laco hold with rosebuds. Her speech was tho brightest and host and tho best delivered of any. Mmo. Dcmorost woro a silver gray ar muro silk, mado in simple but graceful stylo, and trimmed with flno eteol passe menterie. Her bonnet was of gray vel vet and steel laco, with somo tiny, fluffy plumago In front. It is hard to bcliovo that this bright, actlvo woman, with her dark hair, tier snapping black eyes, rosy checks and trim, girlish figure, can actually bo tho Mmo, Dcmorost known for over a quarter of a century to tho reading public It is lm)Sttiblo to tell what all tho la- TEA CIOWN AtD RECEPTION DKKSS. dies wore, bo I will only say that Mrs. A. M. Palmer, tho wlfoof the manager of tho thcatro, was tho most beautiful woman present, among many handsomo ones. I sat watching tho play of her lovely features and trying to keep track of two dimples In her checks as she united, until 1 almost forgot to notice how sho was dressed; but I remember a ItPfjj dainty black lace bonnet full of blush roses, a pair of Hashing earring, a stnl skin wrap, nnd that Is all. I was at n reception last week whore thcro was somo flno dresntug, nntl of tho very latest stylos, so that I present tlio gowns, ono worn by Mrs. Ormo Wilson (nco Cnrrio Astor). It was of Blato gray falllo, with poppy red vcloutlna over dross and train. A dross for n young lady, r loco of Consul General Charlton Way. of irt'sla. Miss Fanny Williams woro a high lurked silk and vcloutlna costume in tobacco bro.,? nntl Inilgc Two other hnndsoiuo gowns; one, n tea gown, Is of pale green crepe do chlno, with dark green collar and trimmings, and the other an exquisitely embrol dored house and reception ilr'hs of pink cashmere, embroidered in Persian shawl colors. I wish to say a word about those now vclotitiniiH, which havo displaced so sud denly all the velveteens on tho market. Tlioy aro mado with a short pilo llko tho Lyons velvet, nntl resemble that material closer than any other goods Tlioy aro largely used In Bklrtsnnd garnitures, nnd nro very durable particularly for chil dren, and thoy look richer than any other matctlnl that can bo employed. 1 dou't know anything nicer or moro princely than a Fauntlcroy suit fora boy or an cmprcsi dross for a little girl mado of this goods. All tho newest shades aro represented. Tho light grays, greens and golden shaded browns nro really beauti ful, and the navy blues, wluo color and dark greens tiro certainly ns beautiful as tho Lyons velvet at one-llfth tho cost and with better wearing qualities. I remarked among tho "newest" col ors a sort of n color llko crushed straw berries and cream, with a llttlo pink and bluo thrown in nud tho wholo overshad owed with a flesh color, and a bo ft green with all tho delicacy of sago green nnd all tho hazy softness of moss, und those aro to ho combined. Tho llrst is called "Tripoli" and tho secoiul "Vesper." Scparato thoy aro tho ugliest nud most unsntisfaotoiy colors I over saw. To gether they uto beautiful. A rich cloth of tho green has a wido bordering of tho other and together thoy make a gown so pretty that any ono might envy It. Sleovei to many of tho warm weather dresses mo to boquito short, reaching scarcely to the elbow, and looso or tight, as may pletiso tho wearer. There will bo eight button gloves esjiecially for them, und ommi work mitts which will just turn the elbow. Laco of nil kinds w ill bo very fashionable, moro so than ribbon for tho lighter dresses lis trim ming, though nothing can ever fully dis place ilhbou for ornamental purposes. Tho black, white und cream coloicd laces will be worn, nnd there nienUo pink, blue nntl lll.ic laces used, also brown ones, all in ilcllcato tints I came across two of the daintiest llttlo frocks for two llttlo darlings, nnd I cap tured them for thoso patient mothers who aro always tiyiug to find something simplonnd pretty for their children. Tlio first is of white llauncl and is trimmed with thrco narrow velvet riblxm bands, and a Hash of the saino with a knotted TWO UTTLK DAULINCJS. Bilk fringe,' Tho llttlo brctellca are also of tho velvet, which I should say is car dinal. Tho other ono is of cream col ored coshmcro with whito surah sash and vest front. Tho brctellos und upier puffs to tho sleovcs aro of shrimp pink surah. Doth theso charming llttlo cos tumes frocks I meant to say can easily bo dovoloped in any summer goods, and in that case tho sashes, etc., aro mado of wash fabric. For instunco, a whito nain sook dress has a sash and trimmings of turkoy red or Indigo bluo, or somo other olor which will wash without fading. Tho other can 1k of narrow stripo or hocked gingham or piquo or other sum mer fabric. Nankin is excellent for wearing qunlity, and bo Is pique, which is bo very pretty this summer. Tho models on sweet, clean littloglrls will al ways bo charming, and I send a loving kiss to all who uro both. Hosiery, ono might think, would bo tho same always, but it isn't. Tlio spring fashions In this necessary line of goods show a groat variety, from tho now white ones to the black, and from that through an endless number of colors and combina tions. I saw somo yesterday that had stripes two inches wide round and round of red nnd yellow. Tho whito ones havo nover been so flno and soft as now, for thcro has tccn a now Invention in weav ing that makes them as soft and lloxiblo as floss silk. There is also a now wcavo which has Sea Island cotton inside and silk surface, which uro very pllahlo and soft and cry beautiful. Thoy do not cost as much as all silk, wear longer and aro fully as handsome. There are others lit Llslo thread in laco effect, so very del icate that it is enough to make one ro grot so much labor lost. Children', stock ings nro almost invariably black except for parties, when thoy uro of p.ih pink, bluo or to match tho simile of tlio dross. OL1VK llAltPER. The Afrlcun'Sloi. Tlio king of tho Belgians, us sovereign of tho Congo state, has instituted an order for rewarding services rendered to tho progress of civilization in Africa. Tlio order is called tho African star, and the decoration consists of an enameled star with live points, surrounded with palm leaves and having in the center a gold star nn u blue ground. The ribbon Is axure with u yellow stripe. New York Homo Journal. NOTICE ! We arc splc agents in this city for Onyx Ingrain and dyed Black Hosiery.
