way. To tho fair minded student thero aro many fallacies of the
theory. It is impracticable and as yet rests on pure hypothesis.
There is confusion in tho use of tho terms land, wealth, capital, etc.,
and no account is niado of tho relation of capital and labor. Rent
docs not accruo until after wages and profit, and even then is an
insignificant item not equal to tho present taxes. As yet a large per
cent of tho farm lands yield no rent. Employment, wages and
pauperism depend on tho social character and wants of a community
rathor than on tho ownership of land. Three fourths of 'the wealth
of tho country is exempt from taxation becauso it is protected by
tho government. There is no practical method of determining rela
tivo value of land unless a national board of assessors should be
instituted, and tho result in cities would be tho covering of the
entire ground with tenement houses. It would also encourage land
monopolies and would leave many disparatives that can be as easily
corrected in tho present system as to "fly to ills wo know not of" in
tho adoption of tho single tax theory, Tho last meeting of Sorosis
will bo held at tho homo of Mrs. A. C. Ricketts, Thirty-third and
L streets, May 23. Mrs. McGahey will lead tho discussion of the
"Parliament of Religions."
"I understand that tho Coxoy movement has caused a certain
feeling of unrest in tho Knickerbocker Club," says "Tho Saun
terer" in Town Tojrics. There is every probability that there will
bo a demonstration of unemployed and permanently tired clubmen
on Fifth avenuo some day this week or next. The idea is to have a
procession of tho unemployed, dressed in the latest London clothes,
and carrying banners bearing tho inscription, "Wo Demand the
Abolition of Rest." The procession will form at the Brunswick
Hotel and march up to the Metropolitian Club, on the steps of
which speeches will be made. Gen. McAllister has been asked to
lead the industrial army, but has refused. It is possible that the
Coaching 'Club will appear in the procession and demand that the
Club issue non-interest-bcaring bonds for the construction of better
roads. After the services there will be a dinner at Delmonico's
and perhaps a poker game if the paraders are not too tired. It will
be a great day for New York."

Mies Jenneatte Wilson entertained the Hard Times Whist club
Captain Wm. G Spencer, Asst. Surgeon U. S. Army was ordered
before a retiring board which convened at department headquarters
on Tuesday. The doctor has been in very bad health for over a
year and now at his own request is put on the retired list. The
doctor and his charming wife expect to sail shortly for southern
France to be gone a year or more.
Mr. Arthur P. Guiou spent the early part of this week in Chicago.
On Tuesday evening of this week "Tho Ba'chelors" fairly out did
themselves when they turned over their house to the Cooking Club
for a dance. In fact it was more of a lawn party than a dance, for
as the weather waa warm many preferred strolling about the grounds
and porches in the moonlight, whero the music by the Second in
fantry orchestra sounded delightfully in the distance. Each young
lady present was presented with a gorgeous bunch of La France
roses. The supper was furnished by the Cooking club and was ex
cellent and every one pronounced it by far the pleasantest affair
If ever a man feels like "a poor worm of the dust," it is when he
suffers from that tired feeling. Ayer's Sareaparilla removes this
discouraging physical condition and imparts the thrill of new life
and energy to every nerve, muscle and fibre of the whole body.

One afternoon this week I happened to drop in at the grounds of
the Omaha Lawn Tennis club and was surprised to note the many
improvements that have been made since last year. A high board
fence now encloses the courts and the clubhouse has been entirely
done over. The ground is in first class condition and the club on a
firm financial basis. Another departure from the preceding years,
and a very good one, is ladies day, every Thursday, when mem
bers are allowed to invite their friends.
Very little sympathy is expressed in army circles for Lieut.
Marcus Maxwell, Second infantry, who appeared before the general
court marshall, convened at Fort Omaha on Wednesday. This is
the second time that this officer has been ordered before a military
tribunal in the short seven years that he has been in the service; for
his first offense he simply received a reprimand from the command
ing officer, but this timo the charges are of a more serious character
being absence without leave and duplication of pay accounts. It
will also be remembered that it was Lieut. Maxwell, who, when he
appeared for Lieut. Maney in the celebrated murder case in Chicago
last month, had his former colonel and lieut-colonel swear that they
would not believo him (Maxwell) under oath. Could there be any
graver charges against an officer than these? From what I hear of
the evidence it is more than likely that Lieut. Maxwell will be found
guilty and if so dismissal is almost Euro to follow. Colonel Biddle,
Ninth cavalry, is president of the court and tho other members from
out of town are Colonel Bernard and Leiut. Jackson.
