Waul McAllister raid a yenr or to ago, that
four hundred people comprised tho rirnir rfr
la vreme of Now York society, ho lniil tho
fouiiilation for n notoriety which serving for
fame, has resulted today in an enormous wilo
of ".Society As I Have Found It," tho most
ridiculous "literary" curio produced in many
years. Tho press of tho country with un
usual unanimity havo treated tho hook with
contempt, and McAllister hns lecoiuo tho
laughing stock of tho nation; hut ho taken his
dally walks up and down Fifth Avenue, in
blissful anticipation of tho day, fast up
pionchlng, when his "famo" will havo wild
V00.000 copies or his bKik. Had it not been
for tho "four hundred" Incident, tlio hook
would havo fallen so Mat that tlio author
might havo temporarily lost his upotlto in
consequence. If ono wnntsto mako a success
in literature, on the stage, In tho pulpit, or in
almost any vocation, ono should III st do some
thing sensational or notorious. It doesn't
matter very much Just what it is, so that It
makes people talk. In other words If you
want to make a great name, llrst make a
fool of yourself.
it Id tho existence of iouipous nonentities
like Ward McAllister that hi lugs society Into
disrepute. It Is fortunate that thero nro few
men who aro willing todovoto a llfo time to
a prurient endeavor to mako a reputation as
a giver of dinners, a leader of tho germiin,
and tho fashion.
A gentleman who hasn't had tlnio to bo
como accustomed to tho western way of do
ing things, makes tho following criticism on
our hall room etiquette: "A ball should ho a
stately affair. I do not mean by this thn it
should bo stiff; but while there should Ihi tho
utmost cordiality wo should be very careful
lest our friendliness nnd sociability overstep
tho boundary lino of good form. A dance
with tho tirellmlnary courtesies and subso
quent separation of tho partners should bo
conducted with tho utmost formality and de
corum. Generally speaking I think tho balls
hero uro managed very nicely; but I havo
been struck particularly by tho entlro nb
senco of formality on tho part of gentlemen
engaged in illllng out their programmes. It
Is customary to approach a lady w ith a bow
and prefer your request in some such way ns
"May I havo tho honor of n dance?" or "May
I havo tlui next dance, or tho next?" where
upon tho lady examines her programino and
If there aro vacancies and sho U agreeable,
the hands it to you to 1111 out. Hero I notice
that tho young man rushes up to tho lady
and frequently without oven so much as a
nod, grabs tho programino, scribbles down
liis naiuo and lies away aguin, never thinking
to ask if ho might have tlio pleasure, or
whether sho wishes to dunce any mo,o. The
lady lms no voice in tho matter at all. Of
couro I understand that in a city tho sl.o of
Lincoln pooplo becomo so well acquainted
that it Is very easy to forgot some of theso
little t ilngs; but it doesbeem to mo thero
is no excuse for tho hio of politeness I havo
mentioned." In justice to society at largo I
would say that tills custom is not so gener
ally followed, as my friend's remark would

Hy tho way,tlir.o with Its dlscovorlos.plays sad
havoc with our favorites, making us ulmost
doubt if anything is -if. Wo have all been
lately convinced that our well-thumbed copy

was not written by Shnkespore, and those of
us who lovo to read Homer nro of course

that no such person as Homer over exlstd.

and Hemus, too, havo been banished to tho
realm of mythology and recent historians
havo disproved tho account of Jonah's ad
venturo with tho whalo. And Coriiino whom
wo havo paid a dollar to see every year for
many, many moons, wo now learn has been
dead for nigh union decade. It Isn't strange
that our faith In nil things mundane is
Wo may soon expect to hear that Washing

see tho picture now) Is a lie and that the cow
never jumped over the moon; that Poco

that Hobln Hood was never llesh and blocs).
Pretty soon wo shall learn that Horatio never
stood at tho bildge, that tlio iiowspaor yarn
to tho effect that Caesar's wife was aboo
suspicion, was absolutely and unqualifiedly
fulsu; that Paul Revoie didn't take that ilde
and that Itarbara Prltchlo never went
through with that second story window act.
Doubtless the tlliio Is coining when our faith
In sea serpents will ulo havo vanished; like
wlso our trust in tho veracity of Daniel Mc
Member of tho Young Men's Christian
Association mid tho young men of tho city
generally, will learn with regret that (leneral

I am very glad to mhi that rapid progress

will bo ono of tho lluest structures Intho city,
and to tho young men of our clty.it will bo
a priceless lxjon. Too much credit can not
bo given those who hnvo by their liberality
made It ismslblo for the association to put up
such a building.
Lincoln has long felt the need of a suitable
hall for church and other entertainments.
Itohanan mid Temple halls aro too largo for
ordinary uso and, moreover, aiu lacking In
tho usual conveniences, whllo tho Ojiera
house is too exienslvo savo In exceptional
cases. Tlio Y. M. C. A. building will contain
just such a hall ns Is netded and will no

It Is somewhat surprising that n time when
there seems to Imi n general approval of In
decency on tho stugo there should bo such n
ridiculous outcry on tlio part of the prudes
against what they call "suggestive litera
ture." It may bo all right to trim such
liooks as tho "Kreutzer Sonata" and tho
works of tho modern French realists, hut
when It comes to expurgating Longtdhw,
ono of the purest of nineteenth century jioets,
It Is certainly time to call a halt. Those jh-o-plo
In Ilrooklyn who have been engaged in
trying to discover something improHr in
Longfellow might have employed their time
to much better advantage in nu effort to ex
purgate somo of tho clarlng indecencies In
recent theatrical presentations In their own
city and Now York. Hut oven Anthony
Cumstock bus allotted "The Clemenceau
Case" and similar exhibitions to go on with
out u word of protest. My friend, Mr. Pen
tecost, of tho Twentieth Century, suggests
that theso people who uio unable to disting
uish real immorality, sending their time in
chasing imaginary evils, at once form a so
ciety for tho "prevention of falling leaves, as
the trees aro becoming shockingly nakol,"
Hy tho wny of Philadelphia I hear of a
somewhat startling innovation in the way of

of youths mid maidens, has been sealed with

Hoyt'sfhst venturo in tho Held of legiti

p!ay-Wight a great effort to write a
comedy without tho slam-bung ele
