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. Aiuler-on-Kddy. 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 by the young society people living in the line block on Twenty-fourth and Cass , known as Clarke row.

THE WKiTUUN CATX'liB MAUKBT. * An Interflow With Mr.W. A. I'nxtou on tliri KuUlcot. "What la the status ot the cattle market In the wostl" This query was put to Mr. William A. Paxton by n reporter for Tim UER yostordny afternoon. "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 ns I have dono.'i "To what extent Is the overproduction notlconblol" "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 ures I glvo are n fair average. "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 my interest all out. I am satisfied that wo have a management now that will in alto n success of the thing , and I'm content to leave matters in its hands. " lrr onnl George W. Collman , ot Do Witt , and H. E.
