flock to a crush tea with an avidity unex
ampled on eirth. Whether they are as
anxious and as ready for heaven is doubt
ful. After flocking the conversation next
day is, ten chi noes to one, after this fash
ion: "My dear, I was crushed to death, lit
erally, I assure you. Never saw such a
jam in my life. Everybody was there, even
old Mrs. Totdles. Why that woman is
asked I don't know. She got me in a cor

I'd put on my Paris gown to le stuck in a
corner when tl ere were no end of men in

That '8 the way some of the penerr.l aver
age "go on," and the more they chatter the
more likely tlvy are to have begged for an
invitation fron poor, abused Mrs. De
Tompkins. It is beyond doubt that women
calling themselves ladies actually beg for
invitations to all manner of entertainments,
in some cases actually having the imperti
nence to present themselves even without
an invitation i xtorted at the point of the
bayonet! It is not long ago that a scene
occurred at tl e Chinese legation so dis
graceful as to force our friends from the
antipodes to issue cards of admission to
their next ball in order to prevent tbe pres
ence of an una ked mob.
Who are the ' 'barbarians?" One need not
be Chinese to answer. The offenders are
almost always women, a fact which leads
us to ask when lies that inherent delicacy
supposed to be the birthright of my sex?
If Washington society is to be endurable, a
new code of eiquette should be adopted.
The solicitatioiis of people who do not wait
to be asked to j nblio and private functions
should be igiiored; cards of admission
should be issutd to those who are invited.
A land of allege liberty ought not to mean
a land of in tol. Table liberties. Ladies and
gentlemen wil. never project themselves
unasked on my host or hostess. Human
beings who do are unfit to associate with
