THE OPERA SEASON
I It grows late says Prince Karl Heinz Mr Mans
field In Alt Heidelberg and immediately the vlllng
i clock strikes midnight iu full hearing of tho audience
lAt tho Metropolitan where tho now opera season Begins
jtonlght still more thrilling devices of realism have been
provided with the new stage on which thousands of dol
Qors have been spent
L Tho thunder is said to be particularly fine When
f r rhor smites tho earth with his hammer peal upon pool
will resound rumUing and roaring afar even to the re
r mote recesses of the family circle When IJhengrlr
sails down the stream drawn by the swan when the
willowy Rhine maidens swim to and fro In tho rivers
lepths when Kllngsor hurls the sacred spear which re
mains suspended over Parsifal tho act will gain an added
Strength because of its absolute fidelity to the roal
jj These aro but details among the novelties which
promIse to make tho operatic season memorable over its
predecessors A newly decorated auditorium and a more
elastic repertoire furnish tho substantial Innovations
I In the boxes society Is placed on a background of red
n which will set forth as In a frame its beauty and fine
eloth66 Tho brilliant double horseshoes will gleam with
jut even greater resplendence Hero the general public
is enabled to view at close range and under most favor
able conditions the seasons social celebrities and to
complete the critical scrutiny began at tho Horse Show
J The appeal which personality makes to tho Intelligent
1 Y Interest of tho observer Is here gratified to an extent
nowhere else possible The daughter of oil millions tho
son of landed estates the master of the financial market
tho brains of the conversion syndicate which netted
r tho price of a thousand opera boxes in perpetuity is tOM
Been as bo IB and examined with a pointblank stare else
where unpormtsslble
One point of superiority of the opera over the ordinary I
theatrical performance is this double return It makes of
Btago spectacle f and persons eeen

THE TROLLEY PATRIOTS AGAIN
0 The end of tho week witnessed another skirmish In
i the prolonged war of tho trolley passenger against the
arbitrary enforcement of tho car ahead order
t Tho engagement occurred in Brooklyn and was partici
pated In by fortyfive young women mostly salesgirls
Bound for their places of employment In Manhattan
Their car bore a Brooklyn Bridge sign but at Thirty
sixth street tho conductor shouted out the obnoxloui
order and prepared to run back to Coney Island The
t resisting passengers refused to vacate remained In their
Beats and stuck It out through the return trip
It seems to have been a drawn battle But Ita slgnlfl
canco in connection with tho revolts of like kind which
t have preceded It will not be lost Again In this engage
t ment aa in the others the willingness of women to sub
d mit to tho discomfort and tho ordeal Involved in such a
sf fight for principle Is to bo observed as a symptom of I
Interest Perhaps tho contests will yet develop a munici
s pal Joan of Arc who will lead an embattled sisterhood
+ t e In an antitrolley campaign
f r7 Of the material results accomplished by those protests
7
wo get an idea In the current official report of tho State
+ Railroad Commission In August Uio number of transfer
points was Increased from 315 to 331 and for a given
period of this year the number of transfers Issued showed
an increase of 5946852 over the figures for 1902
It is largely to tho efforts of tho revolting trolley
passenger that these concessions were due
i
NEW POLICE HEADQUARTERS
t
Tho now police headquarters on the site of tho Centre
Market at Grand and Baxter streets will be lees near
the citys crime centre than the old
1 Tho present building In Mulberry street on its completion
r
pletlon forty years ago was considered as far uptown as
the new structure Is down It was remote as distances
f Ujen went from Five Points In course of time the
region of resorts of which Harry Hills was the
nucleus grow toward It The scenes of the Bleeckor
street bank robbery and the Bond street murder wore
nlm around tho corner A riot call for a Bowery boys
melee cquld bo answered with expedition
A Now Five Points is purified the Bowery is as safe by
night as Broadway than which It is better lighted and
eVyscraplng business houses have ousted the former Ten
derloin The east side redlight region alono remains
within easy access i
E1 The old headquarters of the metropolitan police has
long been cramped for room it needed years ago the
building which is still only in prospect Tho plans call
i for nn expenditure of 750000 making possible both a
larger and an architecturally satisfactory structure prom
a 1 ising to be an adequate headquarters for half a century
tbcgme
+ u In that time tho city will need to produce an extraor
djnary variety of interesting criminals to equal the rec

The Girl
Who Marries
For lVlone9 °
By
Nixola GreeleVSmith
IIE In not necessarily unhappy
S though It Is undoubtedly the fashion
to say 10 to hold up to the young
woman contemplating n commercial
marriage the Inevitable misery that
must result from It
It all depend
Rome women are born to bG wives
and others to look well at heads of the
trade
Which dyes not mean that a rood
wife cannot he decorative nor that a
decorative woman cannot be a soot
wife
If a normal woman a creature with a
line capacity for loving and being loved
marries for anything rave the fulfilment
of her heat Jnrpulsos ihi Is certatnly
mnklntr a mistake
But suppose she is born without those
impulses Suppose the keenest joy eke
oiqwa cornea from dining at Sherrys or
listening to the silken rustle of hec
skirts moving through the corridors ot
the ValdorfAstortaT
Shall she marry the man who can
mJ6 these occasional joy permanent
Why lIot7
In doing BO she la not majflnjr a mis
take though perhaps he Is
Evon that however Is doubtful
For Is he not looking for some one
that will enable him to express the In
stincts for finery which plaid socks red
ties and a diamond acarfpln have left
unsatisfied 7
Does he not want some one to wear
the diamonds with which owing to the
restrictions of the masculine toilet ho
cannot adorn himself
Look at the women In Now York who
wear most Jon els think of those you
know
Are they not all fine healthy bovine
creatures averaging ICO pounds
Surely they do not look unhappy with
their wellpadded jowls resting placidly
on the glittering plncu > hlon beneath
Perhaps ono wonders In looking at
thorn whether their exceeding plump
ness Is the cause or the result of t
many sparkling Jewels wihloh ndorn 1t
but one know they are serenely pleased
with themselves nnd the world
Why should they rot ba7
Perhaps John or James or Thomas
does not seem to be as much In love as
In the days when he bought that first
magnificent twocarat solitaire
What does that matter
Tha solitaire sparkles as of old Per
haps he does not come home to dinner
more than one evening In the week now
Is not the emerald and diamond tiara
snugly reposing In Its plush case
Perhaps he takes a great many busi
ness trips and goes on many vacations
alone
Tho more the merrier
Does he not always bring her a new
Jewel on his return
Was It not Emerson who said that the
consciousness of being welldressed out
weighs all tho consolations of religion
And surely love Is less Important than
religion

Do Not Despair but Propose Again
BY HELEN OZDFIBID
j
lIEN a man asks a woman to marry him and her an
W swer Is No It depends altogether upon olrctrmj W
stances whether or no he Is wlso to accept Uierdeclsioaj
an final It JB by no means Impossible that she herself mould
prefer that he dId not do so since If for any reason sill J f
has not fully made up her mind on the subject abe Is muchj
more likely to refuse him than to accept him holding a non
committal policy safest f
A man of ordinary discernment can generally tell Whother I
his suit U hopeless which In truth It rarely Is Persever

In the Hint place what Cap In The Pathfinder woulflj Vn
pronounce a circumstance Is whether tho rejected suitori r
Is quite sure that the woman who has sold no gently and
regretfully perhaps tho one and only woman In all that t
world for himself In such a case he Is fully justified tin
refusing to accept his dismissal as more than temporary so
long as she says Yes to no other man On the contrary

women have the privilege of second thought and no woman
was overmuch offended with the man who pleaded for the
liberty to attempt to induce her to change her mind
The man who really wishes to marry a woman will do r
well to propose at least once more after being rejected al
low Ins an Interval of a few weeks to clapso between hja I
proposals during which mlladl may think tho matter over
There are some men who absolutely and obstinately ri
fuso to take No for an answer however positive and

Odd Belgian Custom
Belgian post ltnce authorities have hit upon a singular I
Idea Every postage stamp has a slip attached to It which
may or may not be used at the option ot the person who f
posts the letter This slip Is worded to tho effect that the 1 ti
communication to which It is attached Is not to be delivered t
on Sunday On all stamps of ever denomination this noti t
fication Is to be found and the consequence Is that there is I
growing up In Belgium a new tendency in the direction of
r delivering no letter or newspapers for newspapers nri r
most delivered by post on Sunday l
