He began to write the permit.
"To the United States or Confederate

"Then I shall give you no permit. This

Wby Newspapers Publish Society Nctys.
The time will reach us some day when
the society column will not be demanded
in the newspaper, but the time has not
yet arrived. The average reader's palate
relishes as a sweet morsel the account3
of the movements in society. The New
York Hour has issued the following as
the reason why newspapers contain reports
of social actions:
The publication of society news, or
what is going on in fashionable society,
has finally become a feature of metropolitan
journalism. Yet nothing is more
common among fashionable people than
outcries against the impertinence of
newspapers, the reporters of which invade
the privacy of their homes. There
are even insinuations that the best way
to be rid of this inquisitive class is to
help its members down stairs with the
toe of the boot.
Any one who is fam'liar with the management
of the great newspapers in this
city, knows what a cod jugal struggle the .
editors have to cat down the copy so as
to get all the news into the paper. There
is little exaggeration in saying that a
journal the size of the 2imcs or the Tribune
could be rilled every night with
good matter which the editors of those
papers. strike out of copy with their blue
pencils. It is condensation, not late
hours or niglifc work, that is killing men
in newspaper offices. If, then, this is
the case; if fashionable people think that
the publication of it ms about their receptions,
weddings and dinners is highly
impertinent; and if the newspapers can
hardly find room for actual news, hy do
the journals in New York print, day after
day, descriptions of social incidents
which are most uninteresting to the general
reader ? The explanation is simple
enough. The fashionable people do not
always tell the truth when they rail
against the intrusion of reporters into
private circles. They really like to see
their names in print; delight to have
their receptions noticed; are in ecstasy
over descriptions of their fine dresses.
It cannot be denied that the newspapers
print what the public demands.
Not only do many fashionable people
not object in their hearts to seeing their
names and doings ohronicled, but they
send the matter to .the newspaper office
themselves. Hardly a moil fails to bring
statements that a wedding will take place
at such an hour in such a church; that
this lady has returned from Europe by
such a steamship; that this one and her
husband will sail ; that a reception
(which "please notice") is to occur at
such a number in Fifth avenue at the
time named; that "enclosed is an invitation
to a wedding to take place in Rochester,
which please send to your special
correspondent there." (This comes from
the "best man.")
The description of the dress of a bride
who was married in Grace Churoh not
long ago appeared in a leading newspaper.
She had written it herself. In
fact, she revised he entire account of
the wedding, as she happened to know a
man on the paper who obtained for her
the copy at an early hour in the" day.
Her father had often said that all newspaper
men were good for was to be
kicked. A reporter called one evening
to see the husband of a leader in New
York society about an addition to a library
in which the family had long been
interested and which is certainly a legitimate
subject of inquiry. The gentleman
was out. The servant, however,
with a knowing air suggested that the
lady of the house might be able to give
the desired information. Down stairH
came the lady, smiling graciously, still
in her wrapper. The reporter told hia
errand. " Oh dear!" exclaimed the lady
in a moat disappointed voice, "I thought
you had come to report my ball."
