At last the gay whirl that ha prevailed
attic early In the seaaon and that swept
on Irresistibly past Ash Wednesday shows
unmistakable signs of slacking. The In
formal and the lesser things have been
conspicuously to the fore for the last
weog, bat while this week's calendar Is
well filled, these affairs will be In the
tnaln unpretentious. The continuation thli
season of such things a usually end with
the beginning of Lent was due chiefly to
the 'presence of a half dosen charming
visiting girls and worann. and when these
fell departed It looked for a time aa though
there was a decided calm ahead, but the i
arrival of Mlsa Whitney of Boston, fiances
ef N. P. Dodge, jr., and gUeat of hi Bis
ter. Mrs. Edgar Scott, has deferred this
cessation for at least another week, and
In the meantime the fashionable will dine
and dine pretty much as .they do at any
other tJm of year that Is, aome of them
will. A' found of dinner and luncheon
h been planned In honor of Miss Whit
ney and her father, the dinner given at the
Omaha club Baturday evening by Mr.
Dodge being th first. '
How to bo popular In Lent Is a problem
few young women really understand. And
strangely enough the few who have mas
tered It belong mora particularly to the
frivolous set, so-called. Stranger still It
Is thla type of girl which In town or out
Contrives from Ash Wednesday to Good
Friday to remind her friends In general,
her masculine frlenda In particular, that
th Lenten season Is on. How does she
do It? How I It, sighs many a sedate
young woman, that It I thee butterflies
for nine-tenths of th year who during
Lent are seen oftenest with a squad of
admirer lit their train and who seem not
to have the least difficulty In leading the
squad Into church, not only at Sunday
vesper, but at weekday afternoon ser
vices? It was on of these Inquirer who mlsf
a young woman attending a Lenten ser
vile with a dapper young man seated on
either aid of her and two more young
men occupying aeata In th pew behind,
and afterward she commented on It thus:
"A a rule that girl hasn't a great deal
of attention from men, but during Lent I
scarcely ever see her without - a double
and triple escort. - And I am. told that aha
never ask a man to go to church with
her, that they tag of their own accord.; I
can't understand It." ,
1 ; r . .
Thla Is the answer given by on of New
York' eoclal leader.
"If because she Is different."
"Different? flow different?'.' It wa urged.
"That It not o ensy to explain, for th
reason fhgtu)na girl' method I not always
th am' ts th next girl's. Individuality
1 allowed 'Jiv some case more scope In
Lent' than st any other time.
"But to answer generally, the girl who
In Lent, can beat play a part different from
th part she play at other time la apt
to find popularity.
"Thi, by., the . way. Is Comparatively
easy to girls brought up In society, . who
re to some extent taught to play a 'part
to conceal this emotion and simulat that
emotion, th keynote of their education
being to be at all time entertaining. That
I why, to be quit candid, young women
Of aoolety with the very slightest mental
attainment prove, as a rule, more attrac
tive In a mixed assamblage than young
women of really fine mind.
"For about nine or ten months of the
year mot aoolety girls follow a beaten
and conventional track aa to what topics
may be talked about In public and the
attitude they must preserve toward their
men friends, the latter, bv the way, being
now a fine assumption of lamafaderl.
No matter whether a 'girl hj any feel
ing of comradeship or not for a young
man she I thrown with a good deal, she
must assum th air of comradeship these
days If ah would be thought ip to date.
For the time being that I the favored
pose. Just as the drooped eyelid and blush
were the favored pose In our great-grand-mothers'
"But In Lent?"
. "Oh. yea! Ia Lent It la different. vThe ac
complished girl play another part alto
gether. Jo Lent It la permitted to talk on
eeriou topic It Is even considered good
fortn to introduce the subject of religion,
of isais or of missionary projects In gen
eral company. On may talk books and lit
erature then without being thought a blue
Storking or without having a faar of In
curring a veiled yawn -.
'"This. In part. Is her method, aa far a
t Can tell by watching her. In Lent her
manner to her snen friends la no longer
that of a' jolly chum, a comrade. It Is
father that of a sister with a dash of th
maternal atirred In, and It becomes her
tremendously. Ordinarily ahe ia Inclined
to be flirtatious. Not a suspicion of flirts
tloa is seed in her jmanner during Lent,
She ha looked up a lot of facts on sociol
ogy. Including th labor problem, and about
socialism, which I quite a teahtonuble topic
, b', and abo.it varloue clergymen and lay
fefm-meia ef wmlnenraj here" and-ttiTtmil:
their oplnlona and doings, and made herself
converaant with some of the charities to
ward which her mother 'and her' mother's
"I don't Telleva for the life of her that
she could go very deep Into any of these
subjects, but she knows enough about them
to start other people talking, snd It Is truly
edifying to see her at It.
"fJo, ordinarily neither young men nor
old men cara for thia sort of talk, but In
Lent It Is different. It la appropriate then
and to hear young girl charmingly touch
on such theme and to see her In an entirely
new role which Is consistently aerioua or
half way serfoua for forty days piques the
Interest of moat men aa nothing else will.
For the time being only for the time be
Ing they Ilk the change and show that
they Ilka It by giving as much of their time
as possible to their discovery,"

Sounds Fanny la Chicago.
The Chicago Inter Ocean' editor thinks
the woman's movement Is a Joke, as would
appear from the following editorial in that
It would be better, perhaps, If contro
versies like that which occurred at the
Woman's National , Suffrage convention
on Tuesday, and to which . Mrs. Mary
Smith Hayward of Chadron, Neb., and
Mra Harriet Taylor Upton of Warren,
O., ware the principals, could be alto
gether avoided, especially In gatherings
which are aiming to educate man up to
a higher understanding of woman. But.
since It seems Inevitable that they shall
occur, It Is Just as well, maybe, that the
principal shall be women who have the
oourag aa well as the ability to expr-ss
tttomseivea a clearly a Mr. Hayward and
For instance, Mrs. Hayward took the
position that no woman who was true to
the noble cause In which the delegates to
the convention were enlisted would think
of wearing a hat trimmed with slaughtered
birds, when Mrs, Upton remarked, sweetly:
- "Nobody -who will eat a chicken or a cow
or a fish haa any right to say a word
when anybody else kills a parrot or a fox
or a aeal. Its Juat aa bad. one way or
another. And I gueas we have all- eaten
This, of course, wss In the nature of a
challenge to Mrs. Hsywsrd, who, in a sis
terly tone, replied:
. "I must proteHt against being Included
In such a aweeplng statemnt. Nothing
would persuade me to eat a chicken, or
to connive at the horror of trapping In
nocent animals for their fur. It causes a
thrill of horror to pans through me whan
I attend a woman's auffrage convention and
see women with ghastly trophies of slaugh
ter' upon their persona."
And nothing could be more natural than
that Mra. Cpton should ssk at this point:
"Don't you use birds to trim hats?"
Or that Mra. Hayward should reoly:
"Never! I use nothing but vegetables,
and vegetarian hats are a thousend times
prettier than relics of murder."
It may be Inferred from Mra Upton's
attitude In this debate that she Is neither
an Audubonlan nor a Vegetarian, and that
her main purpose waa to Insist upon con
sistency. Yet. without Intending to convey
