The many friends of "Jimmy" Spear, the
popular and wealthy club man who suddenly
decided to get married last week, are chuckling

his first Odyssey was officially declared oft
Jimmy has been tho most militant of

Another hobby this enterprising young club
man took up was the raising of wild turkeys
at his handsome country placo near Walllng

versely wouldn't remain wild. It appears that
tho progeny, brought up under strictly homo
Influences, gradually became so tame and ordor

the common or barnyard variety. As an ex

Andrew Gray, the well-known Wilmington
lawyer, wit and society man, has been In town
for tho last few days. He Is a member of the
Philadelphia Club and other local organizations,
and is one of tho most popular men about town.
He Is the son of Judge Cray, of Wilmington,
and the story goes that his vory first case be
came tho basis of the brilliant and lucrative
practlco ho has since acquired. When only a
lad of 13 or M ho appeared in the courts against
one of the larger railroads and found himself
opposed by one of the best-known lights of
the legal profession of the country. Mr. Gray's
argumont was so clear and concise, however,
that he won his suit.
His famous father on hearing of It remarked:
"Andrew, I guess you will never be hard up
for money after that." A prediction which
time has since proved to be perfectly correct.
More and more is the city's social life feeling

the leading social clubs are by no means the

But not alone In this Is the war responsible
for alterations in club life. Whero members
were wont to calher about ths llttlo green
tables In the card rooms Very ndtlgeabt
changes have occurred in the stakes they play
for. No longer does ono hear ot flfty-cent rind
dotlar auction with sums ranging Into tho
thousands changing hands. Nowadays tha
limit Is more apt to be down to ten cents,
wlillo flve-cent bridge Is even quits general
among men who aro reputed to bo extremely
wealthy. As for poker, I am told that 14-cent
and even penny ante has replaced tho ordinary
3 and 60-cent games which used to 'bo tho
customary thing among tho city's "beau
Thcro Is no use calling up a Btoclc broker
at his otllco these days. Tou will almost in
variably find him at his club or out playing
golf. The head of one largo Arm tells ma tin
first ?2o he lias mado In a month was by play
ing two of Ms former customers' best ball. "I
go down to tho ofllco at 10 o'clock," ho says,
"open my mull, which consists entirely of bills,
play a game of sniff with the cashier and am
through for the day at noon."
Of course you have heard about Percy. Ho
no longer bothers to nttend the Slock. Ex
change, but has gone In for making n dally
"book" on the horse races. Ills friends, with
sporting proclivities, have deserted the frateV- '
nlty of regular "bookies," who may be ob-jg
served any day hanging around Broad and
Chestnut streets, nnd have helped to devetop
for him quite a thriving business, much to the :
chngrln of his professional brethren.
"It 'certainly is hard to keep a Good man
down," as Jonah remarked to the- whale.
I was astonished tho other day to hear the
remark made that tho Clover Club dinners
were becoming dull. There is no one, It wa3
asserted, who could take tho place of tho Uto
General Bingham. Tho heckling ot tho speak
ers at this, the country's most famous dining
organization, has been a time-honored custom,
but cleverness and witty repartee which U onco
brought forth, acordlng to my Informant, la
not so much In evidence these days. But then
perhaps tho gentleman who was criticising may

I understand that at the dinner In honor ot
Senator I'cnroso's recent victory nt tho polls
tho well-loved president of the club, William
Tllden, was subjected to a, few Jabs of fun.
It appears that ho was launching into a eulogy
in which ho was employing many lengthy and
obbcuro words. A well-known banket called
across the tablo: "Billy, who was it elected
tho ticket? Tho common people. I'm ono of
'cm. Come down out of tho clouds and let us
know what you're talking about!"
