There Are Sixty First-class
An Interesting revelation of the Inner
workings of our smart society was
made a few days ago. when a womau,
picked up a little book on Hellenic ave
nue in Newport. It '.was the sort of
affair her sex use to keep visiting lists
In, and as this volume bore no name or
address, to point to its owner, Its chance
possessor felt herself Justified In looking
civer the contents.
On the first twenty-five pages were
the names and addresses of two-thirds
ot the, leaders of society In New York,
lloaton, Philadelphia and Chicago. But
it took at least half an hour to puzile
out the meaning ot a long list or men's
names on the bock leaves of the little
volume. Opposite every name was a
row ot numerals, -with the familiar
fgn of the dollar mark. In brackets
beyond were a series ot comments that
wily became intelligible when the finder
realized that she had laid hands of discovery
on a complete list ot the young men whose
worldly goods cutltle them to a prominent
place In the matrimonial market.
evidently the thrifty owner of the
leather book, about lobrlugout a debutante
Juxt'pti Wldener, Jr.
daughter for the winter, had been at some
Iialns to ciillect all possible evidence, that
the might make no mistake In whom lo en
courage and whom to frown upon among
the young woman's .admirers, and right
along at the top of her list stood the un
married men ot the biggest fortuune.
THE CKEAM QT Tlin LIST.
George Vauderbllt and Sir James Van
Alcu headed all the ret. for Ihough the
fortune of one was registered at twenty
five millions, and that of I lie second only at

weighs heavily in the balance;
Every fond mother Is led to hope, that
though thcte genllemen have passed un
scathed th-ougli many seasons of budding
beauty, her daughter will cl bear away
one tit the prizes, and the first "mentioned
party is preferred. Ills years are Jet nuni

and artistic, his manners are gracious, his
country home perhaps the roost splendid
in the world and he is known to have not
only a great" fondness and knowledge of
precious stones, but a very valuable col
lection of them, undoubtedly to be trans
ferred to the lady be will make his wife.
Jlr. Van Alcu comes of a fine old Xcw
York Dutch family, fays the little book
that tpcaks with authority, and though
no longer exactly a joung mat., he Is a
famous whip, keeps something like twelve
bors.es In bis stables, and his Elizabeth coun

lect and exclusive house parties in America.
He Is a widower. hning first married n
JIUs Astor, and when he goes abroad is cu
tertajued at some of the very smartest
country houses in England.
OTHER PRIME TAYORITES.
Another obstinate bachelor, registered
lower down, was Eugene Illggins, the ac
knowledged leader among American whips.
His country house and stables are In ilor
rlstowu. N. J., his income is estimated
at $75,000 a year, and his name goes in
brackets with Oliver II. P. Belmont's, whose
Income is given at $150,000. Even If his
house at Newport Isn't In quite as good tate
as Mr. Van Alen's It is far more splendid
and costly, while no prouderposilion is lobe

beautiful black and yellow coach.

Mariners' Yarns of the Fab
ulous Creature "Which
Haunts the Deep.
At several points along the coast of New
York and New England the annual isitof
the sea serpent has been rejiorted within
the. past thirty daj-s. Some of these ac
counts ha vo been circumstantially givenand
apparently In good faith. Hut for no very
obvious reason the ofteuer the sea serpent
Is sighted and spoken atse.i and reported
on shore the more incredulous people seem
to grow concerning the creature's exist
ence. The supposed specimen ot the great
ocean wonder that was washed up on the
beach, at Blackwell's Island, New York liar
bor, a few weeks ago, was only the romance
of a few hours. It proved to lie nothing
more than an ordinary python, which had
died on shipboard at sea, and, having been
first skinned, nras thrown overboard. Here
wo have a probable clue to the very general
skepticism concerning the sea serpent.
People inevitably tend to discredit the ex
istence of a creature, nospecimenof which,
in all the centuries that it has been talked
about, has ecr been brought to land.
Is there a sea-serpent, or is the creature
as mythical as the Jabberwock? Scores of
witnett.es have testified to its existence.
Sea captains and fishermen In large num
bers have recorded their observation ot it
in their logs and reported it to the news
papers. Some ot them have seen It with
their naked eyes and others through their
glasses darkly and some are suspected ot
having n'cn it in their boots. Books have
been written about it and are to be found
at all the leading libraries. Descriptions ot
it have been numerously given with much
niiuutenes-s of detail, and they disagree
with each other lu many essential par
ticulars. DESCRIPTIONS FAIL TO ARGEE.
It has been reported as about twice the
length of a city block, and again as not
more than thirty feet long. Its head has
been set down by some eye-wltucases as
very like that of a horse, and by others as
more like that of a lion. Artists who have
attempted to make a picture of it have
generally agreed to gUe it a head like that
on the great dragons of China and every
body knows that there were never any
great dragons.in China nor anyw here else.
Still the tea-serpent is a well-ailexlcd fact
according to all the rules of circumstantial
evidence. It has beeq seen, hrarrtf melti
and felt by many credible iersons againss
w hose veracity nothing more can be alleged
than that they uere out sailing or fishing
at the time and were not total aVlainers.
Four out of the five human senses are thus
inas.-ed In the mountainous testimony to the
mammoth snake of the ocean. A host of
human cj'es have s,ccn !t curl and twist on
the surface of the Khlnlng summer se.i; a
great array of human ears Ii.ue heard It
snap Its Jointed colls, gnash Its three or four
rows of teeth, and hiss with a vim that set
the sea foiming nil uround It. Numberless
noses ha e detected a peculiar odor akin to
brimstone and suggestive ot theol as it
reared its crested head anywhere from ten
to twenty feet aboe the level of'thesea.
Many an affrighted sailor man has felt his
craft vibrato under too mighty thrashing of
its tall or the angry arching of its fearful
spine. There is ouly one human sense by
which the great salt serpent has not been
tested thej?eti-e of taste. In all the cen
turies nobody has ecr caught one of them;
.therefore, it remains untested by the ordeal
of cookery, and Is of unknown value as a
SOME EARLY MONSTERS.
Hence, too, there is no?pccimcn of its
skeleton in the Smltnconlan Institution
or the British Museum. And for the tame
reason, we suppose, the standard works
on natural history treat It as a mythical
member of the marine family.
There is certainly an unbroken line of
wituesfes to the existence of the sea-ser-lent,
dating from the days of Pliny and
the early Norse writers down to the present
lime. Natralists have variously endeavored
to explain away the multitude of reports
made by credible witnesses of this weird
denizen of the deep. Very early In the cen
tury a suppofed Eca-serpeut cast up on one
of the Orkney Islands was scientifically
inquired into and found to be nothing more
than a huge basking Ehark. Hence it was
inferred that large numbers of other re
ported Eca-fcrpents were only basking
sharks. In the early part of this century
so many f ea-scrpcnls were reported to have
been Eeen along the coast of this country
that the Etrage creatures, whatever they
really were, were eommonlj' fpoken of by
the European. learned societies which dis
cussed them as "the American sea-Ecr-pent."
There were so many appearances of the
uncertain monster atxW that time, several
6r them vouched for by persons of eminence
and undoubted vcracitj-, that the naturalist
Goeso collated the descriptions or It and
Eummed them up as. follows: I, general
