I)cj)cw, you know, is not only n busi
ness associate of the Vanderbilts In tail
rottding, but he mixes familiarly with
them in society. At the opera the
other night I heard Mrs. William Astor
remark: "I do bclluvc, Mr. Dcpcw,
that you have been helping Mrs. Corne
lius vandcrbilt to make out a time
table. Burely, she crowds in more en
tertainments without collision than I
can succeed in doing."
"Did you ever see a man making a
railway tlniOitnblc?" Mr. Depcw
jocosely responded. "Well, this i3 the
way he does it. A thread of a certain
color represents every train that is run
over the lino close" to others. With
two or three of thesn different colored
tlucads stretched along the route, and
by means of markings of their running
time, he lays vout the now schedule.
"Wherever the threads have to cross,
owing to the comparative slowness or
swiftness of the trains and their rela
tive limes of Interfering with each
other, the lay-out of threads enables
him to fix the figures exactly and suc
cessfully. Now, this is a secret," and
lie glanced with twinkling eyes at tlio
proup of a do7en hearers. "I spent
two days laying out n time-table in

Metropolitan Operu-liouse in which
the ladles wetir full dress. The lower
tier projects further Into tlio body of the
house than the upper, so that any ob
ject falling from the latter might readily
strike a person sitting, in the former.
While I'erottl, tho tenor, was reveling
in his piercing high notes the other
night a much-bejowcled woman in ono
of the boxes in tho second tier chanced
to lean over tho rail to gaze at the
orchestra stalls. Tho movement shook
a piece of diamond jewelry from her
hair, and it fell swiftly down Into the
hov, beneath. Under soino clrcum

denly startled her friends by clutching I
ner prcuy necK anu exciaiuiltic; "Uli!
I think I'm stabbed!"
Everybody bent solicitously toward
her, demanding what was tho matter.
She tapprd her chest and gasped : " I
felt a sharp weapon strike me heic."
Her mother looked keenly at tho gill's
throat, but there was no sign of a
wound. Of this ho- strove to assure
"It is lower down," whispered the
At that moment a gentleman eutcicd
ly a door at the back of the bow
"Pardon my intrusion," ho said,
"but my wife in the box above dropped
n jewel from her hair a moment ago,
and she saw that it fell In here. Have
you seen uny thing of it?"
The lovely girl who thought hcrssU
stabbed sat uprluht in her chair and
looked a trillc frightened. Then she
dashed inti the back room, from which
she presently returned, her face
wicathcd in timid smiles.
"Hero is the jewcel," sho said, hold
ing forth u handeomo diamond dagger.
"Where sho found the dagger would
have remained a mystery unless u
young man who hud been sitting a
her sulo hud seen It when it struck her
neck just above tho rim of her corsa.;o
and then slip comfortably out 0l" k'Sht
under tho costly laco. Which shows
-ouicwhat feebly that our girls do not
as yet mufllo up to the cars when they
go to tho opera.
It is geuerally believed that th
Picnchinen produco the spiciest ball of
'the season and that tho McAllister pco
pic glvo tho handsomest. But there Is
some mistake in this. Tho largest pub
lic ball and tho slghtlicst is given by
the Germans in tho Metropolitan Opeta
J louse. 'Hits year it was tin iuiomci
ting affair. Tho lioxes were liko gold
cages, crowded with gorgeous birds,
and tho undulating floor writhed with
toituous nhundanco of dancers that
Munned tho vision. A young man-about-town
leaned against tho wall at 2
o'clock and commontcd upon tho da.
"You can talk about your charity,
your French, your patriarch and your
Mrs. Astor girls." said he, "hut when
these German girls tilt out on thctlonr
the test of them nro lost in tho dust. I
don't want to say 'I love you,' or
. 1'afme to-night, but 'Teh llebedieh.'
Now, did you ever sco such blondncs3
of hair, such cherry redness of lips,
such blucness of eye as theso ghls
show? It Is tho Dresden china tinting,
it ml It doesn't como off on tho coat,
cither. And look at the figures of 'cm'
co that ono, tho peachy fairy who fits
into horgown liko a No. 51 hand into n
2) glovo, but, as you observe, staying
there just tho same."
As tho gentleman was speaking a
lull, splendid young woman who was,
In apnearanco, quite tho most fascinat
ing blending of loveliness ever seen,
-with hair liko a long strip of night
and comploxlon as fresh as rose loaves,
Jlcw uii to him and said:
"Vill you danz mlt mo?"
Tho way ho looked at tho young liuly

j-ho would only fall with him. Hut
Jio was found an hour later In tho sup

'From whero?" ho was asked.

Among the products of modern wi
dely there Is rono moro remarkablo
than tho juvenile attondanl-cavallcr. A
tl07cn ileh and highly tcspcctcd New
York matrons now prbvido themselves
each with what sho Is pleased to call "a
useful boy,"nnd to do her justlcoit must
1 o acknowledged that sho compels tho
young man to earn his qualidcfdlons.
Mrs. Grundy herself has accepted him,
and the husband heeds him not.
Iiuleul he Is rather regarded by tint
Individual in tho light of an under
study, as he lelleves Monsieur of many
littlo social duties which would other
wise sadl) intei fere with his own en
gngcmenls, whether of business or of
pleasure Theio was n time when a
iiinultd lady of peisonal attractions
would fcairely have ventured to trrt
nbr til cveiywhero with n good-looking
young man who was not her husbind.
Nowadays we look for the harmless,
ncccssoiy "lame cat." Tho fnshlonahlo
iiiation lakes much prldo In tho nppcir
mice of her cavalier, and to qualify for
llm position he must in n measure ho
ornamental as well as useful. Further
moio he must in no.wlso be awkward.
Ho must bo able to put a clonk "lound I
jiiHinnrssiiouiuors as carefully as her
maid, and to adjust an opera-hood
without milling the hair.
Il being pait of his duties, too, to at
tend to fans, bouquets, opera-glasses,
programmes, dogs, and all such im
pediments, il is nccossary that ho
should not Indulge In the old-fashioned
occupation of wool-gathering, whilo on
no account must ho permit himself to
cherish tho usual masculine nvcrsion to
"shopping;" for when he Is not dis
patched alone to execute my lady's or
ders, which may rango from a box at
tho opeia to a box of pearl powder, he
Is rtquiicd to be In attendance when
she makes thcioundof dry-goods cm
poriums. To the on-looktr tho valuo
of his presence on these occasions ap
peals limited, for it seems that he docs
nothing hut balance himself on tho
edge of chnirs, adjust his tie in every
available mirror, and occasionally make
mildly facetious and moro frequently
impertinent comments on the goods.
At the rcstourants ho secures lunch
eon, and, being well drilled In madam's
likes and dislikes, he thus savos her tho
double of choosing her own faro and
the Infliction of getting what sho do
tests. Ho is useful, too, in finding tho
enninge after the theatre or afternoon
party, and, added to nil thoso service
able if not exactly intellectual qualities,
aro the advanlaccs that ho can bo
snubbed at will, that he never daro
grumble like husbands, and that ho
never bores with the wearisome atten
tions of older men.
To what end do these perfumed dan
dycttes mn errands and act as footmen
to other mon's wives If not to plav at
being gay Lotharios? Their reward is
that they get taken everywhere and
c crybody has to treat them with some
degree of civility. Then, they aro in
tho train of a pretty, or at least of a
popular woman, a distinction which nil
youths envy. They live on tho mota
phoiical milk and honey of tho land;
they bask in luxury and revel in all the
Lest entertainments, pick up "good
tips," and eventually, if they are smart,
"That is tho most beautiful woman I
have ever looked upon."
It was at n theatre tho other night that
Iheaid theso words The actress who
had called out tho remark from the
young lady who sat near to mc, was un
doubtedly a cicaturo of marvelous
physical splendor, probably as well
modeled and tinted as any woman in
New York. llotwecn the acts tho
joung lady who had been dazzled by
tlio beauty rapturized about her to her
escort, ond, among other questions sho
asked, was this: "How was she over
made so thorotmhlvlovclv?"
"Well," leplied the gentleman at her
side, "I havo no doubt that her parents
weic fine-looking people."
I was tempted to direct tho attention
of this couple toward a box filled with
people. They were tho most ordinary
looking lot in the theatre. An old
man who could never havo been
ol pieposscssing appearance In his
best days of youth. A raw-boned,
large-featured woman, with hard
mouth and ugly-ringlctted hair, and
two girls of twenty-flvc or more, with
out a grain of beauty to servo for both
of them. This discouraging assort
ment wcie obviously closclv related to
one another, for n general plnn of ugli
ness overspread them nil.
Tho old panics wero parents of tho
unlovely gills. It seemed unfortunate
that children should Inherit a total lack
of physical attiactlon, and tho artist as
well as tho physiologist would havo rc
gicttcd In looking at them that a mar
liagc which could perpetuate such a
painful piofuslou of homeliness should
have cer been consummated,
Hut the interesting part of it all Is
that that old couple nro tho patents of
tho magnificent actress as well as her
excessively ploin sisters.
How very little of true character
lien tho wisest of men can divine from
the outwnid appcaranco of feminine
beauty. Tho other day n minister of
ihe gospel, who Is noted for his pro
found moral convictions, and also for
his attractivo physical appcaranco, was
walking along tho sunny side of Fifth
avenue when ills cyo caught sight of a
chaiming young woman who tripped
acros tho muddy pavemont. Sho seemed
of most evident excellence of mind as
w ell as body, for ono's attention was not
moio pleased with tho wholesome graco
of her handsome figure than with tho
thoughtful and refined expression of
her pretty face.
"Now, there Is a lovely clilld." said
the minister to his friend. "What is
theie moro encouraging nnd sweet to
sec than a nuro-inlndod and uoblo ex
ample of uirldhood, such as I mako no
doubt that'ono is? It is tho fresh, young
faces liko hers that speak ns plainly as
llow crs or stars of tho worth nnd mean
ing of total cleanness. Thero Is noth
ing coquettish In her."
As tho minister was speaking, ho,
with his friend, drew ncaror and nearer
to the fair-faced daughter of a rich
family, and it was noted that sho had
fixed Iter larco, expressive eyes upon
tho fine countenance of the divine, as
though sho felt an Interest In him.
Presently sho was within a few paces of
him, and at that instant a pronounced
flash of eloquence, followed by an in
genious softening of tho oyos, almost
made the minister's heart stand still.
As ho stopped In amazement nnd turned
to look at tho bold beauty, tho encour
aging smile that mot his gazo drew a
deep sigh of despair from his breast.
As he walked sadly away ho muttered:
"I thought she wasn't a flirt. Am I,
then, such afool ?" Clara Belle.

Tho new evening

short points in front or else quite i

lined wlih a glidlc of silk cord, knotted
on one side, and afterward falling al
most to the hem of tho skirt. Draperies
and puffings of chiffon round the bust
and on tho shoulders appear to be Indis
pensable from these new bodices, while
tiimmings of ribbon and flowers arc
Pompom sleeves, .such as nre here
sketched, aic n new idea. Tlio gown
was a plum-colored silk, bieicadcd with
designs in the colors of shaded nutumti
lemcs. The brctelles and either trim-
mings weic of pale saffron silk gau.e,
and em the- shoulders were wings of old
gold. Hut the cm ious feature was the
puffy stiuctutc of laco lising above tho
mcicly rudimentary sleeve on each
shoulder. Oddity is thus achieved.
Just heie let mo tell, for the comfort
of those women who have to mako their
own dicscs, of the discomfort of a wo
man of my acquaintance who is bound
to be stylish or die in the attempt. She
has just had a fioek sent homo from a
well known New York maker.. She
put it ont and prepared to sally foith
and stilko nil beholders dumb. Hut
her bustle troubled her. Tho tiny pad
felt like n million ball. Sho tiled to
consider it her imagination, but that tor
liblc weight pressing ou her back
nearly drove her crazy. .
At 'last she threw oil' the gown, took
out the pad. jrot her scissois and sat
down to investigate. She ripped tho
pad open, and wliat do you think she
found it was stuircd with? That
"swaggct" dressmaker had swept her
room and emptied her dust-pan into this
bustle. .There were the clippings and
sweepings from a dozen different
dresses lolled up, along with dust from
tho four corners of the establishment,
packed into eemblance of a rng-carpet
ball, and made Into a genuine, bona fide
Imitation foielcn hustle. My friend
has concluded that for tho future a
good, plain, ovcry-day, homo-liku
Yankee bustle will answer nil purposes.
"Which is tlio prettiest dress seen in
Now Y'ork swelldom this February?
Oh, who shall decide? Tho best au
thorities would disagree. Surely a
lovely gown of cornl-pink faille, with
large ilcsigns in thread-colored gulpuro
lace. The ceinturo is of , coral-pink
velvet, while the only trimming consists
of lows of friseo orango ostrich fcathors
arranged as designed. Tho gloves aro
of a palo straw color. Plcaso note the
shlircd effect In mv initial sketch and
also in tho full-length portrait. That
is a biand-now idea. I saw one Empire
gown of bright citron-yellow satin,
tight-fitting and with no other trimming
hut two epaulettes of yellow roses. An

Still another gown of peach blossom

thicknesses, each thickness cut shorlet
and smaller tlimi the lust. You to

that used to be worn? The insldo or
longest thickness is cut oif just aboo
thowulstllne. The thicknesses mo nil
quite loose nnd free from each othct
Tho snmo idea is carried out In the
sleeve. The first thickness is .supposed
to make tho Tull length of
sleeve; the oilier two niu cut,
the first about at the elbow, tho next a
littlo above, and both are silt stialght
up the arm to wheie they enter tho
shoulder seam. The edgu of tho
longer ovcr-pieco shows, of course, be
yond the edgu of tho shorter along the
slit as it does mound tho aim. The
jacket Is cut wide to show tho entire
lront of the under bodice. Tills
bodico has pleated yoke pointed in
front just below the b"icast line, while
below this yoke it fits closely, ciosscel
iu double breasted fashion. A very
clecrdiessl The slim, long waist Is
displayed, the round of bust assisted in
front by tho pleated yoke, and hieadth
acioss the figuie helped by tho tilplc
jacket. At the same time unpleasant
slimness of the upper arm is concenlcd
by the style of sleoves.
Thero Is an evident movemant against
the long waists which havo torturcil
somo of us and made us look out of all
proportion besides. A handsome polntcil
neck dress is made with a sort of tight
fitting Spanish-jacket, the celgo of which
just leachos tho wolbl-linc at the back
and rounds up from under the nrms till
the two points meet and fasten just
under tho breast-line. The triangular
space left in front is filled with loosely
falling laco or net. confined by ribbons
fastened to the edges of the "jacket as
they meet the waist-line. These rib
bons tio loosely in front. Tho sudden,
ugly and unnatural concave from
breast-line to waist in front is thus con
cealed. Hair is dicsscd most elaborately for
New Y'ork balls but not all atop of tho
head as formerly. Sec my pictures for
particulars. Hair must look as If It
stays so without hair-pins. The girls
who have very little hair seem to be tho
ones in luck just now. All the same,
if you havo magnificent heavy loekh

head. No woman whoso luxuriant nat

Yes, we all besiln llfo by dreaming
of somo Impossible hero o'r romance,
nnd all aro rather disillusioned by our
1 think my own Hist ideal was of a
Spanish cavalier, u soil of compound j
of tho Cid and Ponco do Leon, both of
whom figured largely In thu course of
bovcro study In which my ciuly years
wero passed under my father's eye.
Hut Cids ond Ponce du Leons do not
meet one at cveiy corner, and when at
n verv early ago I received a bona fielo
offer I was so wrapped up in trying to
hnrmonbo the lnct with my own
thcotics that I accepted the oiler witli
hardly a thought of what I was doing.
And I am afraid tlio experiences of
life do not, and will not, conect tho
child's astonishment at thedlspaiity of
real and Ideal in fact, I have rather
come to the conclusion that no woman
loves the actual man she accepts and
perhaps marries, but she may go on in
peifect content and security, loving an
ideal to which she hns given his name,
and if the lover has enough of the ser
pent's wiselom, nnd she of thu innocence
of the dove, the happy illusion may
last to the end of their lives. But my
especial bit of advice to men under such
circumstances would be keep up the
Titnnia fulls in love w 1th Nick Bottom,
dicsscd in the nss'.s hide, and if Nick
will hold his tongue and simply look
devotion into her adoring eyes, nil may
go well, but gcncially speaking Nick
tries to intensify tho charm of his vel
vet cnisby speech, and as the nature of
nn nss is to bray, Titauiu is disillusioned.
Now I don't mean that nil men arc
asses far fiom it but I do mean that
almot no man is as high, as wide, as
deep, as astute as the woman who loves
him thinks he is, nnd his business is
simply to never let her reach his limita
tions. He can't possibly icach her
Ideal of hini,butlcthimnitlullycil the
point wheio he stops shott.
Then ns for the Sabine mode of
courtship. I do not think it would bo
generally acceptable. 1 nm quite stue,
for one, that I should be far inoic an
nexed than gratified in being swooped
up by any lough-iidei who came nlong
and "wooed and mauled nnd n' " be
fore I knew how my captor looked.
1 think the Sabinomaidcns nowadays
must be of the same cl.is who used,
after all the eligible gills had been sohl
oft to the highest bidder, to he put up
lu the market-place, each labeled w itli
the amount ol dowiy tlio htato would
bestow upon him who would take her
away. Most of us piefur to bo wooed
before wo are won, and although a cer
tain amount of boldness and confidence
ore highly conduch o to tho success of
a wooer, an excess) of these qualities is
fatal to his hopes.
A good and charitable man, almost u
stinnger to mc, recently wrote telling
mo that lie gave mo the "pthilege" o'f
performing a ccitnin'woik nnd demand
ing a heavy check as a beginning. That
mini failed in his client, thiough at
tempting tlio Fablnc mode of wooing
my Cassette, ami a man who followe.il
tho same tactics in another soitot woo
ing would also fail. A woman who re
spects herself docs so in loe a3 well as
In business, nud carries out in every de
partment of life the goc-el old ailage,
"AVhnt's worth having is woith asking
What n woman does want, and, In
