ECBNTLY wo had a story about tho young school lads wearing drcs3
suits and Imitating tho grown-ups. Last week, In tho Saturday
Evening Post. 1 read something along this line of goneral Interest
socially concerning "Orown-up Parties for Sophisticated Infants'-
In tho serial, "Tho Gold Fish":
"Their outdoor life consisted In walking tho asphalt pavements of
Central park, varied with occasional visits to tho roller-skating rink; but
their social life began at tho ago of 4 or 5. I remember theso functions
vividly, because they wero so different from those of my own childhood.
Tho first of those was when my eldest daughter attained tho ago of 0
years. Similar events in my private history had been characterized by
violent games of Blind Man's Bluff, Hide and Seek, Hunt tho Slipper,
Going to Jerusalom, Rlng-Around-a-Rosy, and bo one, followed by a dish
of ice cream and hair-pulling.
"Not so with my offspring. Ten little ladles and gentlemen, accom
panied by their maids, arrived In motors and, having been rearranged In
the dressing room downstairs, wero rccolvod by my daughters with duo
form in tho drawing room. They woro all flounced, rufflod and borlb
boned. Two little boya of 7 had on Eton suits. Their behavior was Im
peccable. "Alnlbst Immediately a professor of legerdemain mado his appearance
and, with tho customary facility of his brotherhood, proceeded to remove
tons of debris- from presumably empty hats, rabbits from handkerchiefs
and hard-boiled eggs from childish noses and ears. Tho assembled group
watched him with polite tolerance. At Intervals thero was a squeal of
surprise, but It soon decoloped that most of tho children had already seen
the same trackman half a dozen times boforo. Howovor, they kindly con
sented to be aimtB'ed, and tho profosaor gavo way to a Punch and Judy
ahow of a sublimated variety, which tho youthtui auaience viowea wun
"Tho ontertalnmont concluded with a stereoptlcon exhibition of sup
posedly humorous events, which obviously did not strlko tho children au
funny at all. Bupper was laid in tho dining room, where tho table had
been arranged as If for a banquet of diplomats, Thoro wore flowers In
abundanco And a Hfo-slzo swan of Icing at either end. Each child was as
sisted by Jtn own nurso, and our butler and two footmen served, in stolid
dignity, a meal consisting of rlco pudding, cocoa, broad and butter and
"It was by all odds tho most decorous affair over hold In our house.
At tho end tho gifts woro distributed Parisian dolls, tor baby carriages
and paint boxes for tho girls; steam engines, magic lanterns and minia
ture circuses for tho boys. My bill for-those trifles camo to $112. At
6:30 the motors arrived and our.guosts wore hurrlod away.
