AnKnghah paper in commenting on the^above situation ss^s: ^The rhange.^Whether for g( mm! or ill, is marvellous, and^It has gradually penetrated from the ialty^lo the clergy. The other day, when the^lilshop of lied ford was opening a gyrnna^Plum as a branch of the Voting Women's^Christian association, be auggested that^the hall should occasionally be used tor^dancing, and, when the president of the^association, a lady presumablv, herself^fair, fat and forty, offered a mild reinon^strance, the gallant old hi shot* said: 'Yen,^uiadarn, ami If ^ou think I dunce well^enough 1 would gladly lead off the II ret^dance with you 1 ^ We are not bigoted in^Helena, ami wedoobeerve Lint, although^as fares dancing and card playing is con^eerned. we praciiee it as we doouf charity,^ODly when and where it will do most good.
Therapidly approaching spring weather^is creating an unusual stir among the lovers^of this popular game, and on Thursday^afternoon last a meeting of the Helena^Tennis club was called tor tne purpose of^electing officers for the ensuing season.^The meeting waa held in the Second Na^^tional bank, and was well attended, among^those present being Messrs. Geo Child*, It^L^ Word, K A. Harlow, C. Powers Steve^Carpenter. II. Il l^avts, Horace Kane, K.^H. Hill and Cha*. J) McCreary.
Theelection of oAeen being in order, i:^A. Harlow was unanimously elected presi^^dent. Gen, H. 11 ill vice president, and It L^Word secretary and treasurer, while^Messrs. Kugene llraden and Herbert^Nicholson, ^ex ofttco,^ were elected otlici s^of the club. After the election of ollicers^ami due installment ol these gentlemen, it^was proposed that to meet the requirements^of ttiose players living on the east aide the^club should lay out and maintain a court on^the east side, the probable site being the^the vacant lot In tiont of the Hod. Jiw^^Davis' house, on Kwlug street. This, ot^course, will suspend the proposed organiz v^tion of an east side tennis club, and while^It will further the interests of the game by^increasing the playing facilities it will at^the same time strengthen (be parent club.^The erection of a club bouse on the present^club grounds f. i the accomiiiodstn'ii of^members is also in contemplation, while a^very good rule that no players can hold ^^court be)ond one set while other players^are waitiug will be enforced this year.^The initiation fee and dues will remain the^same, vi/.: Five dollars initiation fee for^gentlemen and two dollars and a half^vearly dues, lady members, however, be^^ing admitted on payment of the dues only.^The following new members were elected:^Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Sale Hill, Mias Kris^cue, MisiSligh, Miss Kane and Messrs. W.^C, Humbert. GlbOl and C. 1). McCreary.^Mlsa Stella Knight was also made an hon^^orary ineiulM-r The former treasurer, II^11. I^avis, reported a balance in the treas^ury of some S:U) and altogether the club Is^In an exceedingly flourishing condition.

Therehearsals for this opera are pro-
Kessingvery sstlafactorlly, and musically^ere can be no doubt that It will be a pro^^nounced success. Both Messrs. Wa lace^and Thornburgh are eminently fitted for^their respective roles. The part which^Mr.Thornburgh essays requires a good deal^of dry humor especially in the first act,^blended, however, with a suave dignity In^utter contradistinction to his partner, Ca^deaux, who is utterly devoid of anything^approaching the dignified. Mr. W all tee^can fairly revel in this part, for the more^license he gives himself ana the more ut^^terly grotesque he makes the character, the^better it win t.e appreciated. At the Kn^core club's muaicale on Friday evening^which, by the way, was an unqualified sue^cess the club gave a taste of their profic^^iency In the music of the opera by their^rendering of the famous and tuneful ga^^votte. The encore club la an organization^of which Helena may be justly proud^Whatever they attempt Is well done, and^they can rest assured that two overflowing^houses will witness their production of^^Ermine.
TheCerman to be given by the Assem^^bly club sfter Lent w!u take place on May^3, and promises to be a very successful af^^fair. The favors are to be unique in design^and well worth dancing for, the committee^having the selection of same In hand he^ing Miss Childs, Miss Humley and Miss^Phillips. The decoration committee will^Constat of Mr*. Joe Davis, Mrs. W. K^Humbert. Mrs S S. Huntley and Horace^Kane, and the committee on refreshments^will comprise Mlsa lilalne. Miaa Stella^Knight and Miss Hlwwerree. Kugene llra^^den will lea i. with Mrs. 4. ^ Hunt ey, but^the rather novel innovation of three assist^^ing ceuples will Ih* attempted, and Messrs.^George Hill. K. W. Knight, Jr . and Mr.^Atklnaon. with three fair oartners, will^serve as whlppers-in. The club have fully^determined lo make the dance the event of^the si ason, and certainly the selection ot^thaV committees and the esprit dc corns^with which they have undertaken ttnir^labors bodes well for their must sanguine^expectations being fully realized.
TUBCSKS Or IHNNEK I'AKTIEK.
Itis alwayi a mystery to me why the^Helena social world does not indulge m
dinnerpsrtiea more often. There is no^pleasant, r method of entertaining your^friends, aiid from the days of l.ucullui^down to the present century Done more^universally popular. Kvery thing depends^^pon getting the right |^oople together and^seating ttM*m so that they will intellectual^^ly shine to the best advantage, and last.but^not least, touching them off with a good^dinner and some t h h e wines. The oys^^ters, like the ear ^ bin mots, are easily^swallowed, wmle by the tune the soup Is^strwd the thaw begins to take efanj^speaking of testers, probably the largest^on record was lately h-tud up off ^ hrist-^church Heat4, Hants, Kngland. It w^ igbed^three and una hall pound*, wss mvn^inches long, and equally broad, s \*^en^Km ties in circumference and twenty and^one-half Inches round the outside edge,^l.ike all hngltsh oystera, however, it prob^^ably lacked the luscious tUvor of our ua-^tive shell fi-h. arid certainly one of these^would go a long way towards making a^tough Lenten meal.
HereIs one oi the latest ideas for a din^^ner party. The tables are arranged in the^form of at'langle, the centre being tilled^up by an artificial lake. Lilies and terns^float on the water and the shores of the^lake are simulated by a bank of rosea Im^^bedded In ferns with pink faiiy lamps^twinkling at intervals. At the end of din^^ner the gentlemen are presented with a^Minoklng set, but though the pipe, match^box and tiny tobacco pouch appear to be^real they are actually made of csndy;^while the ladles in turn are furnished with^candy boxes containing cigars and cigar^^ettes. A mutual exchange if, of course. In^order, aud the gentlemen are then left toen-^Joy their cigars in peace A mandoline or^cbestra which 11 t^s thro ighi uf the repast is^concealed t^chihd the plants, aud some^body should suggest a tew live fish and^some mlnature rods to while away the^time between courses.
TheCrescent club gave a dance on^Thursday night, which proved to be a very^enjoyable affair, and Banff! hall was well^filled by the members of the club and their
Mrs.Morris, of 417 I'.road way, gave a^party In honor of Miss Mill* 'I urner on^Monday, which was largely attended by^ibis )oung lady's friend*, among whom^were the. Miss-s Marshall, turner, Vaughn,^liritt and St. Clair and Messrs. Morris,^Morrison and Mnith. Card^, round games^and music made the evening pass very^pleasantly. A young gentleman present^who numt^era among his many gifts that of^phrenology introduced a new method,^which promises to be extremely popular^with yourig ladies, and by the aid ot^simply a pocket handkerchief, showed^them a new bump uhhh has hitherto^bam strangely aenleeted by the leading^phrenologists of tne day. The I KtfMM^modesty ot this gentleman prohlbds any^mention being made of his name, although^his bhreuologicnl studies will doubtless^terminate in bin faiif marriage,

Havingkilled every character In Hamlet,^^ihioirei),^ as 1'at would say, the ladles'^literary society are turning their attention^to that somewhat formidable author,^Uuskln, who, while calmly asserting that^no one should hsve an opinion, is nut by^any m- ^ n* slow in espousing bis own.^However, Shakspeareaud Kuskin, together^with tea and cake, have a decidedly elevat^^ing tendency, and a woman who can quote^Kuskin and fall back on Shakspeare for her^similes is liable to provr a formidable an^^tagonist to any man who ventures to talk^shop in the domestic circle.
Afpental to the Salt .^ake Tribune Is au^^thority for the statement that K. K. Crosby^and wife were nearly run overby he Hrand^Cannon's carriage driven by a certain Mr.^Doe, who, when Mr. Crosby stopped to ex^^postulate, used language more emphatic^than refined, it does not pay to stop In^the middle of a crowded street like llroad^way to expostulate with a driver on bis^careless driving. 1 would advise K,. K.^Crosby to expostulate with Harry Cannon^and compromise by selling him some^Prickly I 'ear iota.
Thenumerous friends of Dr. K. K. Mus-^ser will be sorry to learn that he has left^Helena to take up his residence at Ked^i.^dge. but there is a certain amount of^satisfaction in knowing that he has ob^^tained a lucrative position, ana one which^may had to further advancement. The^young and fluttering hearts In Ked Lodge^will doubtless realize what a mascot this^talented young doctor really la, and the^do^ tor is likely to pave the way to a iflm^marriages before his return.

AClub Member^ desires to know what^can he done to prevent gentlemen living in^(he city and not members of the club from^corning up and making themselves at^home^ Tr-e query Is hardly one for news^^paper controversy. A club Is a social^gathering which makes Us own rules, and^should enforce them. It Is not. however,^out of place to say that very tew cluba^would permit a non-member and resident^of the city to frequent their room a and that^any officer of the club would he fully au^^thorized In plainly demonstrating this fact^to an intruder wbo, through igno^^rance or bsd taste might commit surh an^error. A gentlemau would be almost as^likely to walk into a gentleman's house^uninvited as to enter a club, unless espe-^daily invited by a member in good stand^^ing.
Toa believer In the disestablishment of^black and white:^ The cummerabund can^be worn for half evening areas, but It has
neverfound much favor, save among^watering pi tee dudes, who relatively hold^no jiosltiou In society. This dress constats^of the regulation dress trousers worn very^wide, s colored sash wound several times^around the waist in place of a waistcoat,^and a black Jscket with broad lapel turned^hack with silk In similar style to the ordin^^ary swallow-tall.
MedicusInquires whether there ia any^great harm in sitting another fellow out.^when a pretty girl is the object of interest'.'^There Is no great harm in wearing out the^the young ladys* furniture it you know^that you are the favored one, aud the aver^^age s^m'lety girl has quite enough ^aavoir^faire^ to make this plain to you. Hut it Is^the height of folly to try and sit out ss^^other man, especially if the gentleman In^^iuetttlun happens to be the young lady's^intended husband.

Hut was It entirely chance.Charlie^/^Did you not cut around Hie block in order^to get there^ If riot, however, one de^^cent now would suffice; the next tune juu^can try and look uuanxious, the next you^can light a cigarette, and if chance brlugs^you together again^well, you had better^propose a walk, Charles, thereby saviug^your hat froui further mutilation.
Inreply ^ . ^K^*x,^ without having posi^^tive information on the subject, 1 do not^think that there was one man In evening^dress in tie auditorium a' t ie Musin cm-^cert, and 1 can safely assert that In thr* I ot^the boxes, at least, none of the gentlemen^^wore dress suits. Any gentleman accom^^panying ladles to opera, theatre or concert^is perfectly Justified in wearing a dress suit,^and pays the ladles he accompanies a de^served compliment in so doing Helena,^however, has hardly reached this standard.^Five years ago In New York a dress suit^was rarely aeen. Lately, especially in^theatre parties, the dress suit is the rule^rather than the ex -epiion. Hut there half^the men about town, don their swallow^tails for dinner, whereas In Helena they^do not. They have only reached the semf-^barbaric state, when a frock coat and white^satin four-in-nand covers a multitude of^sin*, tiive us time, ^Kex,^ and we will^get there. Hkkhwino.
A^ lull - i:. .^ n i r. ^^I.ewiston i Me.) Journal: A little girl la^Auburn, whose ways are altogether lovely,^became recently, after the manner of^childhood, very much interested In those^epidermic excrescences on her brother s^hand, known familiarly as warts, and she^thought that she would be very bsppy if^she could be blessed with some just like^them. Her mother had taught her to prsy^for what she wanted, and tbe little damsel^of her own accord prayt d one night for^warts. They caiii^^wlieth^r in answer to^petition or by eseeeslva familiarity with^her little brother's beauty-marks Is not^known, but ihey came. As time passed^the little one's views on warts^changed. She no longer thought they waff^handsome or nice and she t^^ok the same^r^ medf to remove them, viz , prayer. It^proved less eft ae ions m this direction than^in the other, and after some vain petition^^ing she presented lor teartul face at her^mother s side one day recently, and with^determination born of disappointment said^that she would never make another prayer.^^Why,^ said her mother, ^you prayed lor^the warts and they came. Ood only sent^what you asked for. Why should you^complain'.'^ The little maid looked^tboiightfiilly up for a moment and then re^plied with this direct statement, ^1 will^tell you why mamma When 1 asked Hod^for warts 1 didn't know they were not nice^and tiiMl did, so there r' It settled the dis^^cussion.
