The unseemly spectacle of summer linger-
fiiK Immodestly In the lap o ( autumn \ > a
further proscntel during the first four davs
ut last week , anil people. In anil out o ( so-
doty , did llttlf else than contemplate It with
practically unanimous emotions. This ab-
fimblnK occupation effectually Inlet feted with
noddy doings anil will account satisfactorily
for the somewhat meager record which fol
lows. There Is apt to l > u a certain apathy ,
anyway , ilurltni the last tew days o ( a inon-
atch'H lelgn , and Ak-Sar-Ben the 'Htcenth
has lens than u week now left to rule. It
hhould bo homo In mind , lion over , that ho la
not the only Ak-Sar-Hun In the den , that
theto arc others , and that prepalatlous for
Ills successor's coronation ball arc Hearing
completion on a male of magnificence rat-
culaud tu eclipse all balls of dlettuit or re
cent past. Next week ulll not lack foi spice ,
nor the chronicle of Itj events for 7 cat. With
a State fair open every day , both theaters In
flctlm operation every night und thousands
of v Islllng strangers experiencing the mani
fold dcllglit and perils of a great cltv , the
nightly parades nnd the aforesaid bill on
Friday \\lll jnal.e It a pcilod still more to
ho remembered. The new king's policy will
doubtless have Its effect upon the current of
society dm In I , ' the coming season , but there
Is i ration to believe that the successor to
the present sovereign will be as lenient
toward the follies of mankind as he.
There are those about here who have not
hesitated to anathematize our late weather.
The eafc , however , of Archibald Johns only
L'OCH to prove that the past heated term
( from more of which tuny wo be granted de
liverance ) , served not to blight every one
was about to say "green thing , " but Archi
bald will not nn.sucr to such a classification
( served not to blight every ambitious growth ,
but brought about a glorious triumph
Archibald adores n beauteous maiden , Mtsa
Mary , whose charms not Aichlbtld alone has
found to bo manifold. Mlt > s Mary Is a general -
oral favorite , and she graces the region nd-
Jneont to Htuiacom purl ; , umlcr the guidance
of her fond parents with a sweet and mod
est piesence. Her father , a good man ,
though an nustcrc , believes that young
daughters should not be too much In evi
dence , u good principle within bounds This ,
being his llrm belief , has led to the annihila
tion of all possible suHor.s save one. Archi
bald has been considered Bate company be
cause ho Is bo modest and mannerly
Now this youth suspected a reciprocation
of his love , and one evening before the
"veathtr changed he determined to sound the
depth of Jlnty's regard He vowed with a
manlj vow that he had bided his time long
enough , and that If there was a watch on
duty that Bight It should bo disposed of.
This might have suggested difficulties on the
face of It , but Archibald , goaded on by love ,
knew none of them
Arrived at the house , hot and perspiring ,
ho spied the fair Mary upon the piazza , -with
her paiu , as usual , on guard. In pursuance
of his fell design Archibald bespoke his
thirst " \\\is the'e Ice water ? Very good.
No ! No ono should fctlr He knew the way
to the dlnlngroom It was easy to find "
So wa : the door leading to the basement.
It was but a slight task to sot the spring
lock upon this door Then he returned to the
pla7a to await the arrival of 10 o'clock ,
when Mary , papi and mamma and Mlgglns ,
the pug , must retire.
Time passed slowly There was nothing to
do. A suggestion that ho and Mary shoulA
go for an Ice cream sqja gave Archibald
voice , but bis kindness was mlscciistrued by
papa. Paterfamilias meant well , but he
had never been a young man , which Is the
same as &a > lm ; he never tasted an Ice cream
soda. The only flavored cold drink pap.i
took wab beer , which he did every night
before going to bed , a sacrifice to propitiate
Morpheus. Papa did not enjoy beer , be
cause It tasted like quinine , but It was easier
then running around the block and pro
duced the same soporific effect ; nnd papa
weighed fourteen stone.
When 10 o'clock airived papa arose "Mr
John , " said he , "I am about to take a glattf
of beer. " ( This was no news to Archlbild.
The same thing had often happened to him
In the same way ) . "I never exceed ono
gla s , bccauce It gives me what Is called
u. 'head. ' Perhaps you will Join me , ami
then we must all retire. "
Accord'iiglv. papa repaired to the base
ment. Mamma was nowhere In sight. Archi
bald's tlmo was come "Mary , " he ex
claimed , grasping hei hands hurriedly ; "tlmo
Is short 1 will do It better next time , on
my knees probably , and I owe you a thousand
apologies for presuming ( there was a tre
mendous rattling at the basement door ) for
presuming to use underhanded means to see
you alone , although I did lock your father
Into the basement ; but I love you , dearest.
Yea , I do ! ( The hubbub below Increased ,
mlmglrd with cries for help. ) And I believed
If jou had a show you would say you loved
me. You do ? Then let's let father out
and I'll drink jour health You do forgive
mo ? Oh , thanks ! I knew you'd stand by me
One kiss , then he'll ascend. There ! "

Extraordinary preparations are making for
nMt Friday night's bill at the Ak-Sar-Ben
castle , which promises to be not only the
most hrlllant society event of the season ,
but the most gorgeous and elaborate affair
over projected in Omaha. The knights , by
moans of frequent drills under the super
intendence of a regular army officer , have
arrived at a high dcgreo of proficiency , and
It Is expected that their evolutions In the
picturesque uniforms appropriate to the oc
casion will be one of the most attractive
tea tin 03 of the evening's entertainment. The
decorations of the den are progressing rap
idly toward completeness and will surpass
In magnificence nil previous displays. A
beautiful fountain has been erected In the
royal court , and Is expected to add greatly
to the beauty of the scene. Three bands
will furnish music for promenading and
dancing , os well as concert numbers.
Two hundred knights will participate In
the coronation ceremonies , and about the
us my number of ladles , chosen from Omaha
and other Nebraska and Iowa cities , will
compose the court of the queen. The Iden
tity of the now sovereigns Is , as usual , a
secret religiously kept by the appointing
committee and no hint can bo dropped at
this tlmo as to their names or estates.
