What the Empress Eugenic was to the
ladles of Franco and thoprincoof Wains Is
to the society men of England , so Mrs.
Grover Cleveland Is In n degree to the fash
ionable Indies of the now world. This Is no
bettor exemplified than In the gradual rejec
tion of that time-honored institution the
bustle through her influence. Only n few
months ago Mrs. Cleveland , then the first
lady of the land , looked with 111 favor upon
that artificial hump nnd completely discarded
It , Nature had done a great deal for her ,
and she Is BO prettily formed , thnt she real
ized thnt the bustle was nn unnecessary ap
pendage as far as she was personally eon-
corned. The effect has been magical , nnd
to-day nliio-tontas of the women of the coun
try appear In shrunken proportions. First
roods took the place of bustles ,
but now most ludlcs appear with
out any artificial development , und
the flattened effect appears stranccly enough.
The lady of good taste , us usual , wears reeds
or a rudimentary bustle , or neither , ns she
appears to the best advantage , but mnny of
the dear Indies are devout votaries of FashIon -
Ion , and tnato is often offered in sacrifice
to that goddess of modern growth. If any
thing Is the fashion it must bo followed. 'Jo
do otherwise would bo sacrilege.
The bustle has boon n uoud latter in the
eastern markets for a number of months ,
but of late It 1ms been following tbo star o *
empire in Its westward course , and thu ladies
of Omaha now appear as their reduced cous
ins of the cast.
The bustle IB of voncrablo ancestry , being
n llueal descendant of the farthlngull worn
about the tlmo of Qucon Elizabeth
of England. After a sleep of
n few centuries the farthingale
ngatn came Into pnbllc notice about thirty
years ago under the new name of the hoopskirt -
skirtnnd for n while grow to prodigious
proportions. After a reign of about ten
years the front portion of the hoopaklrt Was
eliminated , nnd , the part remaining was
styled a tiller. In tile course nf iv few years
thu titters became dwarfed Into bustles , and
with the maturity of this useful article c.une
the ridiculous pull-bacit. The bustle hn.
liultl Its own ever slnco against the vicissi
tudes of tickle fashion nnd the jeers of man
kind until Mrs. Cleveland appeared on the
scene ns a dross reformer and scaled its
doom. For the present the bustle is con
spicuous by its absence , but a few snatturcd
wrecks of It are left and these tire masquer-
nil ing under the name of "reeds. "
I'nrncll I'arty nt tin : Park.
On Wednesday evening the members of
the Pnrncll Social club pave their second
party this summer ut Hunscom park. There
wore seventy-five couples in attendance , who
were transported to nnd from the park In ca
pacious carryalls and the street cars char
tered for the occasion.
Thu music for the occasion was furnished
byau orchestra with harps and violins , and
the mnlody rounded very urottily in the open
nir. The opening refrain for thodnncers was
played at 0 o'clock. From that tlmo until
13Ul | a.m. the dancing was kept up
almost unremittingly , with n brief intermis
sion for cooling refreshments nt 11:30. :
Twonty-threo numbers Wcro danced. The
committee on arrangements consisted of B.
C. Foley , 'Miohaol Kllgallaji , Martin Me-
Konna and William Selk ; the floor commit-
'ted , jof IJurnoy Shields and John N agio , and' '
thoVuieBiuJjrB-ofi llie < tdanairoment "committee
also IcnthV'tiCluliiK ha'ud. Mr. Ed O. Quihn
bore inO.st gracefully the honors of master of
ceremonies , and William Boqtiet und lady
led the grand march. The dnnco proved
such a great success that the club will prob
ably give another at the same place In thrca
or tour weeks.
Mr. W. K. Anderson , chief clerk in the
freight ofllco of the Union- Pacific , was
married 'Tuesday to Miss Moslllo Eddy , of
Bollovuo. The ceremony occurred at the
homo of the brldo und was witnessed by a
few relatives nnd Intimate friends. The
same evening the newly married couple
came 'to Omana and quietly went to houso-
kecping-in a cottage on Twenty-sixth nnd
Cnldwcll that.Is owned by the bridegroom.
The same evening they were surprised by a
suddcu'iufltuc ' of friends , and before they
could realize the situation they found themselves
selves- the recipients of numerous elegant
wedding presents nnd the hosts of a surprise
wedding reception. They gracefully ac
cepted the situation und proved themselves
royal entertainers. The brldo is well known
in Omaha , huVIng been for some tlmo a
teacher in the Dodge street school. Both
Mr. nnd Mrs. Anderson have a host of
friends who wish the new partnership noth
ing but bliss and good fortune.
Fifteenth Wcdilini ; Aiiiilvoranry.
Monday was the Fifteenth anniversary of
the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Peter O'Mnl-
loy , nnd'iu ' the evening about fifty of tholr
friends took possession of their house with
out a moment's warning nud presented them
with u handsome silver ton sot. The pre
sentation speech was made by Mr. J. T. Mo-
rlarty and sparkled with wit and oed feel
ing. Mr. O'Mulley , who could scarcely ro
ulizo the ( situation , collected his faculties suf
ficiently to make n brief and graceful re
sponse. The evening passed pleasantly in
social converse und at n seasonable hour the
guests departed , wishing tholr hosts many
happy returns of the day.
Full DTOHH Collar * and Cuffr.
The embroidery of full dross shirt fronts
proved so popular with soeloty men the past
Reason thnt there nro indications that this
decorative fancy will bo carried further the
coming year , und the collars and cuffs worn
with full dross suits will bo likewise orna
mented. Collars with embroidered points
have occasionally boon worn before , but this
is probably the llrst instance in niiin's ap
parel in which the embroidery hns been cur
ried entirely around the edgu-of both collars
and cuffs. With this upparol , taken in con
nection with au embroidered tie and
embroidered vest , n young man maybe
bo quite decorative. This style promises to
inane n hit , us there Is a tendency among so
ciety men to enliven the funereal garb worn
us full dress ut present. The use of tennis
sashes for vests and of knlckorboeker
breeches for thu present style of pantaloons
huvu hud nuiny advocates among society men ,
but these styles would otuso too sudden and
startling a chungo to please the conservative
taste ? of the majority. The embroidery
gpokun of above is moro likely to Ihfd favor ,
as it IB merely au improvement on a style al
ready in voguo.
I'nriy In Uarkn Row.
Ono of the jolllobt events of the week
among the upper circles was the party given

This query was put to Mr. William A.
Paxton by n reporter for Tim UER yostordny
"Over-production , " replied Mr. Pnxton.
"There's the whole thing In n nutshell. The
business Is vastly ovordono. There Is no
longer any money In It , nna whllo I don't In
tend to loaves it nil nt once or altogether , I
don't propose to woric as hard nt It hereafter

"To what extent Is the overproduction
"Well , slnco the really palmy days of the
big stock ranches , the increase in thu number
of cattla brought to market U about ( H ) par
cent. Say from 1873 to 1S84 , there would bo
during the months of August , September
nnd October from 1,009 to 7OxK ) hood shipped
in nday ; say nn average of 4,000 , But that
was when IK ) per cent of the oattlo thnt came
to market were brought oft the range , grass
fed , nud the receipts outsldo these months
did not amount to much of anything. Now
it is different. Ninety per cent nra corn fed ,
nnd the supply is constant , always In nil-
vnnco of the demand , which has its inevitable
effect on tho. price Of meat. I suppose that
from 3,500 to ,1,000 head of cattle roach tbo
South Omaha market every dny In the year.
There .xro 'off days , ' to bo sure , but the fig

"Do you ask where the cattle coma from ! "
ho continued. "Wall , the farmers i-ulso
them. Every fnr'mor ' has a fow. no matter
how little hind ho has. And the big farmers
raise moro. They seem to think there's a big
profit in the business. "
"Cnn these stiinll farmers rniso cattle ns
cheaply ns they can bo raised on the rungol"
"Yes ; cheaper , because they save thorn nil.
On tlio rnngo wo lose 40 or CO.por coot of
them. The cattle growing country tributary
to Omaha is nil of western Nebraska , most of
Wyoming , und part of Colorado nnd Idaho.
Omaha Is Independent of Chicago , but the
latter is the packing canter of the coun
try , and will remain so , because
stia has shipping facilities thnt en
title her to it , Omaha' ' used to ship
most of her mcat'ucross the water , out vary
little gees over now.
"Wlil the farmers continue to boar the
market In the future to the sumo extant ns
in the past flvo yoarsl"
"Yes ; more , probably. Prices nro down
to stay , nnd big profits arc things of the past.
The fact that 1 aui going to unload a part of
my work and responsibility down nt the
stock yards don't moan that. I'iu going to pull
