Men In Muulcty.
Judging from tlio accounts, that roach
thin city, tho Bcurclty ot men in Bocioty
in Omaha continues, with as yet no
prospect ot relief, At a recent dancing
party in that city tlioro wero some eigh
teen or twenty "wall Dowers," and tho
newspapers aro echoing tho cry tor more
niou that goes up from tho churmod
circle In Lincoln so mo ot tho young
men who have heretofore taken an active
interest in society are this season doing
but littlo in a social way; but tlioro is no
noticeable preponderance of young
women, and Lincoln girls huvo yet to
experience tho disagreeable sensation
of being "driven to tho wall," iih tho
World-Herald puts it.
A Vuliiue KnlrrlHliiiitfUt,
President Howe, ot tho Capital City
Cycling club, has issued tho following
invitation to members ot tho press ami
You aro respectfully invited to attend

Where the Wilde Lire,
Within a stouo's throw of tho houso
once inhabited by tho sago of Chelsea
and Jauo Welsh Curlylo stands tho
quaint Queen Anne mansion in which
Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Wildo have elected
to dwell. Even the most casual visitor
wtnnot but notice how strangely differ
ent to tho average I trl t ImI t houso Is the
Interior of tho homo of tho ouo-tlmo
apoHtloof isthuticiHin. To begin with,
tlioro Ih mi utter aliHoncoof tho so called
artlHtlc coloring -dirty greens and moldy
yollowH aro absent. Everything Ih dainty,
neat mid clean looking. A cream panel
ing forms tho base of tho whole scheme
of decoration, and iniikcHii delicate back
ground for tho beautiful things placed
against It. Mrs. Oscar Wilde, though
still quite njoiing woman, Iiiih won n place
for herself in her husbaiid'H brilliant
circle. I lor masses of brown hair, deep
blue o)ch and fair skin would mmk her
aiiyvvlieto iih an P.nglish woman, and an
hour's talk with her hIiouh she has read
and thought on tho problems of tho day.
Entirely to her Oscar Wildo him left the
training of their two sous, Oyill ami
Vivian, two singularly gifted childien,
who bid fair to carry on both tho liter
ary ami artistic traditions of the family.

Tlio Bradley-Martins never do things
tike other people, and tho fact that they
should have sent cards to their acquaint'
ances in New York city announcing the
heads of game killed during one week
at Halmacaan, Ih only another proof of
their passion for notoriety. Anyone
else might have referred to exceptionally
good sport in a letter to a friend, but
the idoa ot emitting printed cards can
huvo suggested itself to none but those
who desired them to leappear In the
papers. I marvel much whether the list
of tho "very fashionable peoplo in.ieed"
which precedes the summing-up ot the
game was also an emanation from the
American laird's brain. Tho "very
fashionable peoplo indeed" do not read
bo particularly well, and aro by no
means so impressive when one comes to
scan the list. Craven, being u son in
law, was there; Lord Chesterfield, a
poor man, and Craven's great friend,
who was at one time frequently being
announced as engaged to certain Ameri
can heiresses; then there was Lord
Terenco Illackwood, whoso recent
espousal of Misa Flora. Davis probably
caused his presence, and tho houso
party was completed by tho crowd ot no
bodies generally to bo found at
Halmacaan, on account of the spare bed
rooms having to be tenanted, 1 pre
sume, and lest, perchance, the two
Earls should bo bored by the paucityof
fellow men. I might mention, by the
way, that tho bag wiib not at all ex
traordinary as shooting goes nowadays,
and in nowise warranted tho universal
notoriety tho cards have uchieved.
Still tho purpose was accomplished, mid
that, after all, is the main thing. Town

Chicago peoplo huvo beui congratu
lating themselves for a weok past on
having secured tho services ot Mr.
llobart O. Ohutflolu-Tuylor as nianu-
gerof tho annual Charity Hall that Is to
bo held at tho Auditorium January 8.
This is tho first time that Mr. Chat
field-Taylor has served In this capacity,
ami tho result of his elTortH Ih awaited
with coiillilence by his numerous ad
mirers. Mr. Chattleld-Tiiylor's llrsl
step was a radical and, in view of the
hard times, a popular ono. Heretofore,
a Chlcngnuti deHlroiiH of attending the
Charity Hall Iiiih been called upon to
pnyIOfnra ticket as tlio saying goes
in Prairie avenue, '-for self and dame."
This jear, however, Mr. Chatfleld
Taylor has decreed that tho "ten" shall
admit tho holder of tho ticket, and two
ladles Instead of one; which, as my
friend Mr. Samuel Allortou truthfully
observes, Is "giving every ent tho best
of a show for IiIh white alley." I cannot
too st i ougly endorse somo of the mild
iikascH that Mr. C'hatlleld-Taylor has
seen lit to promulgate with a view to
the proper and do oroim government of
the ball. Included In these is one
order to the elFect that tho eating of
cold pig's feet-a favorite Chicago
delicacy -between the flgiues of square
dauccH shall not bo permitted before
ll:!l() p, tu ami another absolutely pro
hibiting tlio wearing of a silk hand
kei chief HtiilTod 'n the neck to protect
the dancer's collar in tho heat of a
wait. This last fashion has become so
common in high Chicago society of re
cent yems that Mr. Clntlleld-Taylor, 1
understand, felt compelled to put a stop
to It. "If," as ho wisely sajs, "a chap
wants to lie In stjlo all tho evening, lot
him bring mi extra collar witli him; or,
better still, lot the fellowH who perspire
in tlio neck keep olFen the floor alto
gether." - Town Topics.

What a horrible, hideous thing
"society" is- -on the Btage! What power
fully wondrous magnifying glasses it is
seen through! Hut why call it "society"
-except as a drawing card? "Tho Crust
of Society" is not society at all, but
the brazen counterfeit of it, ami as
consistently might brass be called gold.
True, thero are just such women as Mrs.
Eastlako Chapel and Mrs Ernestine
Echo occasionally unmasked in real
society; but they are promptly cast out,
as Chicago and every other city is fro
queut witness? How impossible for these
human counterfeits to remain in the
real strata, any more than spurious coin
can remain in circulation! Society -tho
real, pure thing, which, thank God,
exists In this country is criminally
libeled by these revolting plnjs- "Diplo
macy," "Lady Windermere's Fan," "The
Second Mrs. Tanqueray," "A Woman of
No Importance," mid similar importa
tions. I would like to know what moral
or purpose American society is bequeat
ed by these shocking scciich mid sounds,
which must be past belief in a general
uudienco, for dopruvity has not yet at
tained this goal on our soul. The
