BOHEMIANS AT "MARIA'S."

Twelfth st. Building wreckers will be in pos
session before many weeks, and a modern
apartment use will be raised on the site. For
seven years the place has been known to those
who call themselves Bohemians and live Their
own lives in the way that ■ leases them best, so
far as the state of their "finances"— a varying
state usually— will aft ir i Saturday nights at
"Maria's" have long been considered good fun.
but the cele-bration of New War's has always
been a special feature. Invitations were sent
out to the faithful who had struggled through
Innumerable stretches of table d'hote miscel
lany in course of the year. They came early,
filled all the seats, arid stayed until every one
was thoroughly tired out.
All sorts and conditions of men and women
made up the crowd at "Maria's" on New Year's
Eve. There were lawyers who had much prac
tice, and younger ones who hoped to have it
seme day. There were artists whose names were
: known to those who live without the pale of
Bohemia, and have never had the lint from tabls
d'hote "linnen" sprinkled over their clothes.
There were reporters with jobs, and those who
had just lost them. There were a banlcr or
two. and a prosperous broker, who for once for
got to buy champagne, and was content with ihe
Chianti and other Italian wines more within
i the reach of his friends of the evening. Th- re
j were actresses who had never risen above East
j Side vaudeville, and perhaps later in the evening
a "star" from one of the Broadway playhouses
would float in for the sake of old times. There
were sure to be several chorus girls.
All who could got places around the several
big family tables, for there was the most fun.
The others sat at smaller tables, and were
equally happy. It started quietly— this New
Year's celebration at "Maria's." The long din
ner came first, and from the soup, which was
brought into the room in the kettles in which it
was cooked, to the tarts which made the dessert.
it was a feast. The drink catalogue was a long
one, and there was no danger that the supply
would run short. After dinner came cigars for
the men and cigarettes for the women who liked
them. And then the wine, more wine, the ef
fect of which was to appear later. No one
drank too much, unless by accident, and every
one was happy.
There were men of sharp wit about th.- tables
and they tried to outdo each other in telling
stories. A singer would command the attention
of the crowd for a moment, and a ripping chorus
would follow, for every one joined in the cho
ruses at "Maria's." playful bread tights from
time to time added to the excitement, and there
was general Interest In a wine drinking contest
which two foolish youths were holding in one
corner. Pretty girls, dancers in rival ballots,
strove to surpass each other from neighboring
table tops. And so the fun went on, Increasing
after midnight, until the climax was reached
at an early morning hour.
The Bohemians who had been going to
"Maria's" tor years were jealous of their rights,
and intruders were usually treated without
mercy. They tell of an invasion of "dubs" a
few years ago, and how one of the crowd, a
reporter, drove them away. Some chap with
more money than bruins, one of the kind who
never had learned, never could learn, to be a
good fellow, drifted into "Maria's" and liked the
place so well that he brought many others of
his sort Soon the 'dubs" and "bucks" were in
the majority. The reporter knew much of the
personal history of the invaders, and was fortu
nate in having some power as a ventriloquist.
He took his station outside a window at the
rear of the big dining room and directed his
remarks with much skill. A purseproud banker
fled in dismay when from some unknown quar
ter came the story of his early experience as a
ragpicker. Another man departed in much haste
at the mention of the brand of hair dye which
kept his locks raven black. A callow youth was
] sent away with a very red face when the man
in the window told of the foolish things he had
done through his love for an actress. One by
one the intruders were driven into the night.
and not one of them ever came back. The
j Bohemians heid a reunion that night, and the
■ celebration rivalled the one held last Tuesday.
Nine years a>;o Maria de Prato, for that is
the full name of the comely woman who gave
the place- its name, had a little restaurant at No.
'*■• Macdougal-st. Then she- took the big doubl •
house in West Twelfth-st., and it was not long
before tome member of the Bohemian crowd
discovered her. At first the two big rooms i:i
the basement were large enough to hold the
patrons. Then the floor above the street was
.fitted up to give more table room, She had just
finished a thorough renovation >>f the place
when the owner sold it. In less than two months
the buil.iing will !>.• turn down. Hut "Maria's"
will not be lost, except to Twelfth-st. In some
new quarters, yet to be secured, a new resort
will be fitted up and the Bohemian. 1 ! who fre
quented the old one will follow uptown.

Mr. Justice Jell father was a tutor at Oriel
in the old days when Newman, Whately, Arnold
and Keble ought to have made the talk of th'
common room worth hearing, but. according to
Mozley, did nut succeed in so doing. One m«in-
Injj, in lSl!ti, Newman had a summons from !>r.
Lloyd, Kegius professor: "Dear Newman, step
in. please, for a moment." lie did step in.
"How ul.l nr«- you?" aske.l 1.1. .yd. '"Five ant
twenty." '.'Get away. I don't want you." \vas>
all the explanation tendered. I'.ut a little later
he knew that Lloyd had been commissioned ti>

of Cumberland, and that lie had chosen J«»If,

It is to be hoped that the new Uluecoat School
will prove such an auo.le of happiness that tUe
small scholars will not need the stern rebuke
<!e;ilt out to Co'erldgc when h«? was one <>f t';em.
This Is how hi describes the matter in his
"Table Talk": -The discipline at Christ's Hos
pital in my time was ultra-Spartan; all domestic
ties were to be put aside. "Hoy!" I remem'.wr
lloyer saying to me once when 1 was pry If thu
tirst day of my return after the holidays, 'Hoy!
the school is your father! Buy! the school *
your mother! Boy! the school la your brother!
the school is your sinter: the school Is your first
cousin, and your second cousin, and all the r.*st
of your relations! Let's have no more crying:"'.
Certainly, tears would not avail against such a:i
oppressive array of relations as this.
