The tremendous attractions at the Trans-
tnlMlsslppI Exposition nnd the concomitant
affairs down town proved too much for
Dame Society laat week and she rnjoyccl very
few events save those connected with the
memorable Peace Jubilee.
The brilliant , pageant that greeted Prcsl-
ilent McKlnloy on his arrival hero gave an
opportunity for Innumerable parties to vlaw
the illuminated streets and floats from grand
stands and ofllto wlndovva. Many of thew
were followed by enjoyable supper parties.
The receptions , banquets and luncheons
given in honor of the moil distinguished
guosta Omaha has tvcr entertained by them
selves form one of the brightest periods In
the history of the Goto City of the West as
host. These affairs Were a part of the life
of the society folk for more than a wecR
and the representatives of the leading fami
lies VVBTP kept busy assisting In the dctalU
of entertainment. The good vvlvfls of the
leaders of the Omaha club turned out and
worked haid In beautifying the president's
apartments and adorning the spacious halls
and banquet rooms. They were also on baud
with their carriages to convey the cabinet
members and diplomats wherever they de
sired to go. Some ot the notable guists were
entertained at Omaha residences , Sutllclent
Incidents of Interest transpired during the
eventful wtok.to make nil the teas and re
ceptions that nlll bo held hero till * season
fairly hum With the rehearsal of the nlco
things Secretary So-and-So said to Mrs.
Illank and her lovely diughtcr.
As society recovers from Us abnormal con
dition superinduced by the president's visit
It will gradually transact the pleasant husl-
IIPSI It has In prospect. A considerable pay.
of this consists In the formal presentation
of a dozen young women to the part of the
local world over which Dame Society pre
sides. Several of these maidens will make
their debut soon after the exposition closes
Its gates. Both In quantity and quality , In
number and atttactlvcness the buda to be
brought out this season are uncommonly
rich and give vromlee of charmingly aug
menting the ranks of society devotees.

ilost ot the lights ot society attended th9
Newmarket race meeting , which was very
crowded nnd gay. The duke and duchess
of Devonshire , who arc now the acknowl

spicuous figures at Newmarket was Lady
William Bercsford , the American woman
who was formerly Lillian , duchess of Marl-

recent accident. Then thcro was the coun-

The death of-Marquis-Auglesy on Thurs
day Is another blow to social gaiety this
season , as It sends half the peerage Into

Sir Lepel Henry Griffin , formerly chief po
litical officer of Great Britain In Afghanis
tan and a well-known writer on Indian sub
jects , in addressing a meeting this week at
Luton on the subject of the suggested Anglo-
American union , said Colonel John Hay , the
former United States ambassador at London
and present secretary of state , wrote to him
on leaving England , saying : "I sometimes
think that the , only advantage wo yankces
nossess over lou Is that wo have two native
countries whllo you have only one. " Colonel
Hay appears also to have given his opinion
of the suggested Washington memorial In
England , expressing approval of the scheme ,
which be regarded as being in the highest
dcgrco magnanimous. Ho remarked that It
had been the first country which had pro
Gented a memorial to the man who bad
beaten Its people In arms , adding that the
subscriptions must como exclusively -from
Englishmen , as , naturally , citizens of the
United States could not participate In any
Shocks the Jiovr Churchmen.
Slnco John Kenslt's anti-ritualistic cru
sade , churchmen have 'boon ' awaiting anx
lously for the utterance ot the archbishop of
Canterbury on the grave questions raised ,
which have agitated the whole body of
churchmen. In a series of charges to the
clergy delivered this week , the prlmato
spoke In no uncertain voice. Ho caused
profound Impression In church circles and
deeply aggrieved the low church party. The
prlmato declared plalny that the doctrine of
the real presence as embodied practically In
the doctrine ot non-substantiation , Is per
mitted , though * not expressly taught , by the
church of Enfgland ; that , although compul
sory confession is absolutely Illegal , volun
tary confession Is legal , and no clergyman
Is justified in refusing to hear it , and ho
commended prayers for the dead , but forbade
Invocation of the saints or the virgin. He
declared the elevation and reservation of the
sacrament and use of Incense are uon-per-
mlssable , but h approved of a certain re
vival of the ritual , in conformity with the
prescriptions ot the pra > er book. Practically ,
the prlmato sanctions all the doctrines and
practices which the low churchmen have so
vehemently condemned , and the high churchmen - "
men are proportionately elated. Though
they disagree with some points , most of the
clergy will fall into line with the primate's
charges , or injunctions. Kenslt , whose fol
lowers have been somewhat shaken , pro
poses a demonstration in a thou-and churches
during the first Sunday In November.
A curious method of aiding charities has
been Initiated In Paris , where , It Is an

will be applied to the charitable works , of
f which the lady of the house Is a patron.

adding that they will return to the Unltei
