A. W. Uttlng In New York Times.
Wa met, an other couples met.
And strolled s-down the river's bank;
X klaeed your lips, nor can foget
The sweet delights my fancy drank.
Ton aald you never lived 'til then,
And that for me your love was true;
We vowed-for life! and death! But when
The Bummer left me, ao did you.
Auruat ha nearly melted' away and It
will not be long before September will
break forth and all society will be
.wakened. Many are returning to tho
city already, while the aummer guests ara
preparing to depart for their homee.
. One remarked the other day that It waa
extremely "dull." Aa far aa formal affaire
ara concerned, yea, but when one aeea
the aummer girl on picnics, automobile
rldea, moonlight driven, to the club In the
aftemoona, (dlecuaslng the "moat popu
lar girl," and "the beat catch of the sea
son") and laat but not least, all the In
formal parties, which, by the way every
thing now Is "Informal," no matter how
swell a function It may be, It aeems a
shame to hear, "oh, ws are doing abso
lutely nothing." x
A variety of amusement have helped to
while the hours away the paat week. Of
course the tennis tournament waa the
main attraction. Every day saw a. good
crowd at the club, and towards the latter
part of the week the people grew more and
more enthusiastic, . and the burst of ap
plause and cheers were at times almost
deafening. Each and every girl had
their favorite. Should he win the game
there was a look of "Well, I told you ao,"
but should he make an error It was "I
wonder why he did It," perhaps a long
sigh; "He Isn't half trying," or "He Is
simply rattled." When all the time the
contestant la trying his utmost to win,
and appear at his best before the anxious
ones whose eyes are centered upon him.
It was a week of luncheons, but taken as
a whole that la a charming way to enter
tain. The hoateaa not only can show her
ability as a good conversationalist, but can
prove to her guesta how artlstlo she may
be In arranging the table decorations.
Watch for a run of bridge whist In Omaha
the coming season. The game has just made
Ita formal entrance Into local society and
all' the elite are praotlcing up to shine at
the tables when the Indoor entertainment
occupies the boards. "We always take up
every new fad about the time It has had
Its go in other towns," remarked a debu
tante of other days, "but we have this
consolation we get as much fun and ex
citement out of a discarded device aa other
places do out of It when it la brand new.
Ve'll go wild over bridge. Just aa If It
were an tnventloh of our own, and no one
else had ever touched It before. We
picked up ping pong last year after it was
dead throughout the east. The trouble
with us, however, is that we tire so quickly
of each Innovation."
Since so many engc cements have been
announced; everyone , Is , anxious , to . know

RECLAIMING ARID. LANDS
Artesian Well Possibilities of West
ern Nebraska Subject of Got
. enament InTestlgratlon.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.-The first an
nual report of the arid land reclamation
service of the geological survey, made by
F. H. Newell, who Is In charge of It, has
been completed and soon will be made
It gives detailed Information of the work
to date of the establishment of a system
of irrigation under the direction of the
national government. It appears that the
work has been carried on In the different
localities In the various states and terri
tories aa follows:
On Salt and Gila rivers In Atisona; on
Colorado river In California; on North
Platte, Gunnison and Grand rivers In Colo
rado; on Bnake river In Idaho; on the
deep well problems of western Kansas;
on Mill river In Montana; on the txteslan
well probabilities of western Nebraska; on
Carson and Truckee livers !n Nevada; on
the artesian probabilities of central Ore
gon; cn Bear river in Utah; on Yakima
river in Washington, around Lake Desmet,
and also on Sweetwater liver In Wyoming.
At each of the places where systematic
work has been conducted preliminary tem
porary withdrawals of public land, but
which may be reclaimed, are indicated
only in a general way by these temporary
segregations. - ,
Commenting on the effect, of these with
drawals, the report says:
The impossibility of stating in advance
waat lands will ultimately be recommended
for reclamation will reeult In great dis
appointment to many persons. The fact
that the lands have been temporarily set
aaide is. In the eyes of man v. an Indication
that these lands will be reclaimed soon,
and although every attempt has bean made
to warn ItiJiviuualB or tne rutuiiy or nung
upon theae lands under ths homestead law,
they perxixt in taking up the land on the
bare posHlbiliiy that the surveys and ex
aminations will ultimately show it to be
reclalmable. It is an unfortunate con
dition, which apparently cannot be cor
rected at present.

AMERICAN SOCIAL RECORDS
Dowager Dooheiiof Uanohetter Easily Out
ranks All in Point of Euoceia,
MRS. WEST AND MRS. PAGET ON DECLINE
aaaeble of Former With Viceroy
of Irelaad lias Put Her Into
Disfavor With tho King;

LONDON, Aug. 22. (New York World Ca
blegramSpecial Telegram.) The corre
spondent for the World has had a talk
with one of the Inner circle of fashionable
London society about the social records
made this season by American women and
this la what she said:
' "In England a social success means royal
favor, an dthere Is no doubt that no one
Is so Intimate with both the queen and
the king as Consuelo, dowager duchess
of Marlborough. There is not a single
party this season to which she was not
"The duchess of Marlborough may come
to the front again, and probably will when
Blenheim house Is open, but now one hears
little about her. She Is very exclusive and
does nothing to Imperil her position. Her
health has not been very good and the
duke Is not easy to manage, but her fu
ture Is still In her own hands. Miss Gladys
Deacon haa rather broken with the duchess
and people wonder why.
"Mrs, George West and Mrs. Arthur
Paget, whose names were once all power
ful. In London, are both going rather out
of vogue. Mrs. West's squabble with the
viceroy of Ireland because he did not In
vite her to all his parties when she was
In Dublin displeased the king and Mrs.
Paget has overdone the running of Ameri
"Mrs. 'Isaac Bell, on the contrary, made
some good friends and will take a house
here next season. She let no one run' her
she did not need It.
"Mrs. Frank Avery of Chicago made a
great splash, but It all came to nothing,
he has made no permanent friends, al
though she spent a great deal of money.
Her laat yarty was almost deserted. She
made the same mistake of asking other
people's friends that Mrs. Leggett did, and
of Mrs. Leggett one hears nothing now.
"Mrs. John Leslie, another of the Jerome
sisters, has In a way usurped the position
of her sister, Mrs. West. Her Influence
over the duke and duchess of Connaught
gives her great power and she considerably
helped the debut of her niece, Miss Moreton
"The Padelford family has been more
prominent than ever. Mrs. Arthur Padel
ford has been Immensely admired. The
other Mrs. Padelford, now Mrs. Ernest
Cunard, has also had a success and her
daughter. Miss Padelford, was one of the
girl beauties of the season.
"Mrs. Ronalds, since she went to one
of the king's courts, Is stronger than ever.
"The general Idea Is that Mrs. Frank
Mackey has done herself no good by al
lowing Mrs. Paget to ask all her guests
when she had so many friends of her
"Of the strangers who came over the
Impression at first was that Mra. John
Drexel had made the greatest success, but
this was a mistake. The king found her
dull and was only civil to her In return
for her civilities to Mrs. George Keppel
when she was In New York. But she cer
tainly dressed well and always looked
"The great success In royal and social
circles was Mrs. Shaw, (the Dana. Gibson
girl) who not only delighted his majesty
but was a favorite with all his friend.
"Mrs. Perry Belmont was taken up by
Mra. Paget, and had a certain success,
but made no permanent Impression. She
Is believed , to contemplate a more de
termined campaign next season. Mrs.
Frederick Bell was also one of Mrs.
Paget'B 'four-in-hands,' and has yet her
social spurs to win here."
