Then1 are three classes ot people to

bling over sijii.ire-cut and dccalUllt cor

all these tilings in an ofl'-haud manner
that must be charming to tlio-o n no tin-1
drrstand their .lA-nMCuuce, but Is little
short of bewildering to bachelors, who
have never had the pleasure (?) of paying

I fcuppnee it was for this rea-011 that
tlie lady eorreipondeut were so largely
represented at the New Years reception
of the White House. .Mr. Grand, was
there ; so was "Fax" Gienier, and ;.i host
