Tim KnulUtt Wsy of Doing It.
General Adam Badeau, who was
factotum to Qoneral Grant, and who
know only too woll how to tako advantage
of tho social and other opportunities
that camo to him by reason of his rela
tions with Grant, has an urticlo in u
recent number of tho Coamowlitan on
"Some English Forms of Invitations"
that enables tho writer onco more to
impress his importance upon tho public.
Badeau accompanied General Grant
ubroad in 1877, and ho illustrates his
article, which Ib readable enough, with
fao-slmllcs of Invitations that woro ro
ceivod by him at that time, when at tho
elbow of tho great American ho jostled
dukes and carls and Bat down to dino
with milords and ladies.
At tho outset ho re-produces u form
of "command" from tho queen, as fol

folluwing day.
Windsor Caatlo, 25 June, 1S77.
"No subject," Bays General Badeau,
" nor oven foreigner, may retain tho in
vitation of Her Majesty, which has been
declined." So tho following is placed
on the reverse of tho invitation:

The following is self explanatory.

Tho Minister of the United States
and Mrs. Flerrepont prrsent their
compliments to Qoneral Badeau and
have to announce that In obedience
to the Queen's commands they will
dine at Windsor Castle on the 21st
. of June, and their own Invitations
for that day are consequently re
called. June 12.
Saya General Badeau: "The high
English, men and women, are more
gracious when they sit down to write,
their notes than in any other act ot
their lives. ,They write so many ot them
that the pleasant words Blip off their
pens almost unawares. In
fact, to judge by their notes, tho Eng
lish are a far moro polite people than
you Hnd thorn in reality."
It would, perhaps, be unjust to infer
that the countesses who wrote such
charming notes to tho literary general, '
did not, when brought face to face with
that consequential personage, glow iion
him with a corresxindlng ardor.
Tho I'rlnco and Princess of Wales
when they invito do not commaud; they
only "desire," for example:

"Mm. Gladstone's parties are vcr

Tho latest Vanderbilt oxploit calls
forth tho following from a Now York
"Tho world reads In tho newspapers
that Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt sots sail this
week for a ten months' cruise on tho
lirgest and handsomest steam yacht
afloat. Ho takes with him a party ot
guests, nnd it is easy for anyono ot
imagination to conjure up tho perfect
indolonco and ease in which tho luxuri
ous party will glido through tho blue
waters ot tho Mediterranean, cooling
their casual thirsts with iced winca.
appeasing tholr recurrent hungers with
ornamentul viands and listening to
music from tho romantic guitar. Tho
sybarites ot ancient days know no
greater rapture than tho Messrs. Vandor
bilt, Belmont, Rutherford, Webb, Beach
and Keys will experience during their
voyage. It would bo extremely sour
and anarchistic to envy them thoir
happiness or to hint for a moment that
they do not deserve it. They are all
noble gentlemen that have labored
throughout their lives for the good of
mankind; they have stood before tho
world as examples ot industry, philan
thropy and unselfishness, and now, after
untold deprivations and herculean labors
they are sailing away to quiet seas, to a
woll earned rest, and thecongratulations
and good wishes of all mankind go with
them. It was thoughtful and generous
ot tho daily nowspapers to describe to
their readers the beautiful plans ot this
yachting party, It is comforting read
ing for the paupers in tho downtown
wards. The mechanic who gets a half
hour at noontime iu which to cat some
stale bread and cheese will bo encour
aged to renew his toll when he reads of
how Mr. Beach or Mr. Belmont will take
their siestas each afternoon amid pale
silk cushions In a whito and gold cabin
after eating themselves into a condition
ot drowsiness. It is, In fact, most
gratifying to all society to know that a
littlo company of worthy men, men of
great intellect, great character and grcut
charity, are to oxporlonco such Hrfect
bliss. Tho canaille will labor moro
blithely for learning of it, and even the
anarchist tvill chortle iu bin joy at hear
ing of that ten months trip through seas
