Miss Zipplo Strauss was tendered a fare
well party last Thursday evening by Mrs. A.
Lewis , attended by about thlrly-llvo of her
friends. Games , dancing and refreshments
ivcro the onlur of the evening and a most
enjoyable evening was spent. At tbosup-
per table one of the party arose , and in a
jicdt little speech presented Miss Strauss
with n handsome gold ring with the compli
ments of her Omaha friends. The young
lady \\yjs almost overcome , and It was souio
tlmo before she could sufllcicntly recover
herself to thank the donors. Miss Strauss
leaves for her homo in Tltusvlllo , I'a. , Tues

The gieat Ward MoAlllstor still remains
unrunicd. It needs n philosophic spirit to
fill * o high a place as his , and MoAlllstor
coins to have that kind of a spirit. Notwithstanding -
withstanding all the aggravation bo has re-
celvod from the legislature , the aldermen
nn.l the newspapers , nnd also from the action
of tha centennial committee in taking away
nearly all the power with which ho was In *
vested a few ucoka siuco in connection with
, > -
the great ball notwithstanding the whole of
it , ho has not been heard to say ' 'd n" once
by any of tils familiar friends. If ho dtdn t
luivo n true philosophic. spirit ho
probably would huvo said it n
hundred times. Ho was almost
the whole ball committee at first , but now ho
is only u small part of it , un oxceedinply
small part , as nearly all his authority has
been transferred to others , yet ho does not
murmur or make a fuss in any way. Ho
bides his time and seems confident thutovury
thing will como right at last. One of tiicso
inquisitive persons who sometimes send short
notes to newspapers asked the other duv.
"Who the devil is McAllister , anyway } "
Who is McAllister ? Well , in the first place ,
Ward McAllister is a southern man , a na
tive or Georgia , not fur from sixty years old ,
and a resident ol Now York nearly forty
years. Ho was trained for the bar und ad
mitted to it , but his inclinations being social
rather than legal , ho has been bet
ter known all along in the clubs and the
social world In general than In his profession.
Ho is in the fullest sense a. society man , liv
ing in good but not extravagant Style on u
regular income from property , and making
himself especially useful to the social world
us un organizer and innnngcr of fashionable
events. Ho Is neither pretentious nor
ofllcious , and ho Is not In any scnso a dude ,
though ho has been often represented in that
character. His friends say ho Js a "good
fellow , " are nil ready to stand up for him ,
and regard the fun miulo of him as u social
celebrity by professional wits as very poor
stuff. "Ward McAllister is always a gentle
man , " Is ono thing they say quite often.
Though ho does not talic much on the sub
ject , ho certainly must feel that ho would
have done much better for himself had ho
kept out of the centennial business al

A musiealo Is to bo given for the * pufJoso- |

the choir to furnish oven bettor music than
it has in the past. The programme com
prises the names of some of our best local
talent nnd will draw largely , regardless of

U Is becoming the habit of certain persons
to rail against what is termed swell dressing
and the young gentlemen who Indulge
therein , This ubuso of good dressing Is a
common mistake on the part of our broad *

In this ago society maltcs demands upon
young men which , if fulfilled , are bound to

yer wants a salesman or clerk that devotes
three-quarters of his cvenintrs to parties ,
dances , etc. Tlio man who doesn't get to bed
until 1" 1 o'clock three
or at night or four
times a , week is in no condition to transact
business at 7 o'clock the next morning. Ynt
that's what our young men are trying to do.

The session of the Croighton Guards 'lit
erary society last Monday evening was an
unusually Interesting one. The first thing
on the program was the excellent rendition
of ' 'Spartacus , " by Mr. J. A. Hoonoy , Ho
was followed by Mr. IX C. Shelley , who read
an essay on "A Typographical Error. " Mr.
Shelley took for illustration a twenty-four
pugo Chicago paper , estimated the number of
typo in it und demonstrated how remarkable
It is that more errors do not nppcr. After
un excellent pUno duct by Miss Maud Husslo
and MM. James A. Atwood , Dr.
Murphy delivered a splendid oration on
"Tho Profession of Arms. " This
was followed by an impromptu debate on
the subject , "Hesolved that Private Owner
ship of Land Should bo Abolished , "
The society has organised a > class in litera
ture that will meet ono a week to study

A peculiar Easter-Sunday custom Is still in
vogue in Bomo of the northern counties In
England. On that day the men parade the
streets with the ' privilege of "lifting" every
woman they'meet three times from the
ground , and demanding in payment cither a
kiss or a sixpence. On Easter Monday the
tables are turned , the women being entitled
to the chance of recovering their kisses or
sixpences , as the case may be.
Chambers' "Hook of Days" thus alludes to
this custom of lifting. "In Lancashire , und
in Cheshire , Staffordshire and Warwick
shire , mid perhaps In other counties , the
ridiculous custom of llftint ; ' or 'hcfxving' is
practiced. On Easter Monday the men lift the
women , find on Easter Tuesday the women
lift or heave the men. Thu process is per
formed bv two lusty men or women Joining
thuir hands across oacti other's wrists ; then ,
making tlio person to bo heaved to t-it down
on their arms , they lift him u aloft two or
tbroo times , and often carry him several
yards along the street. A grave clergyman
who liiipnoned to bo p.ir.sm through a town
in Lancashire on un Ka-ter Tuesday , and
having to stay un hour or two nt an inn , was
astonished by thrco or four lusty women
rushing into his loom , c-xclaiining that they
had como to 'lift him. ' To lift mo're- !
pe.itud t'm ' amazed uivino ; 'what can you
mean ; ' "Why , your icverencc , we're como
to lift .von , ' cause it's ICaster Tuesday.1
Lift mo because it's Easter Tuesday ! I
don't uiiderstnnd. Is there such u custom
huroi' 'Yes. to bo sure , all us women was
lifted yesterday , and us lifts llic men to-day.
And in course it's our rights and duties. '
After a little further paIry , the reverend
traveler compromised with his fair visitors
tor half u crown , r.rid thus escaped tlio
dreaded compliment. "

The twentieth annual grand ball of the
