ON .;-4Y;-:,(' 'à I ...-: ti Tuesday was as ;perfect a day as though it had been made expressly for the numerous callers who thronged, the streets the entire afternoon. The custom of making New Year's calls has been popular in Topeka for many years, and it still clings, though in the surrounding towns and most of the eastern cities it is almost obsolete. The custom of receiving and making New Year's calls is a delightful one and is indeed a fitting way in which to usher in the New Year and it is hoped that it will long remain in favor in Topeka. This New Year's there were few re ceiving parties but they v.-ere all large, and included even more of the older so ciety women than the young ones. It was fully demonstrated Tuesday that the older men enjoy making New Yeat'a calls as well as the younger ones, and in many cases more so. One of the notable parties, of callers was composed of: Mr. A. A. Robinson, Mr. P. 1. Bonebrake , Mr. Eugene F. Ware, and Mr. William A. Johnston. Their cards bore at the top, "Fifth-annual tour of the Youth's club," wishes for a happy New Year, and the names, followed. Another party which is as welcome as it is well known and 'which makes the annual tour each year is the Ad Astra quartette; this year they sang at each house appropriate words set to the tune of the "Old Oaken Bucket." Their cards were big oblong, affairs containing the pictures of the quartette, Mr. Shaver, Mr. H. L. Shirer, Mr. David Bowie and Mr. James Moore, with a. sad looking little Cupid in the fore-ground intently eyeing a. 1901 calendar, and Father Tin,e in the back sharpening up his scythe. Mr. Edward Dennis, Mr.Earl Case, Mr. John Abrahams and Mr. Charles El lioct and Mr. Horace Macferran composed another party; their cards were a vivid red, lettered in black, and wished all a "Red Letter Century." Mr. Halley Reisman, "Mr. Wallace Thompson and Mr. 13111'11S Williams call ed together. Their cards contained a tiny silhouette of the frontispiece of the Black Douglas March, and the following verse: "Like knights of old, We sally forth To greet you maidens fair, And wish you all This New Year's Day, Full many a joyous year." Mr. B. McClintock, Mr. W. B. Roby, Dr. R. S. McGee and Mr. F. B. Bacon composed another party and on their cards was the following verset "Don't call us kidlets Or of immature ages, We're men of two centuries, They call us the sages." A quartette composed of Mr. Kurtz Kellam, Mr. Roland Medlicott, Mr. Phil Dailey and Mr. Clark Dailey wa-s anoth er party that made music everwhere it went. Mr. T. A. McNeal, Mr. Albert T. Reid, Mr. Arthur Capper and Mr. James A. Troutman probably had the most unique cards of the afternoon; they contained clever cartoons of the four gentlemen. In another party were Mr. Arthur Lee Murphy, Mr. Frank Paley Edson, Mr. John Ellsworth Weaver and Mr.Williarn Hale Eastman. There were many other parties but most of the men went by twos anti threes. At Miss Cuibor's. Probably the place where they had the best time was at Miss Edith Guibor's, there were about :30 girls in the party and many of them had never received before. All were prettily gowned and it is needless to, say that they bad more callers than any one. The favors were tiny imitation "full dinner pails," which by the way contained bonbons. The dec orations were charming; in the parlor pina was used and yellow in the back parlor, while red predominated in the li brary. White roses, ferns and smilax helped to make the dining, room a pretty restful spot. In the evening they enter tained a corresponding number of young men at a dancing party at Hudson's halt. At the Y. C A. The la.rgest party of all was at the Y. M. C. A. In the receiving pa,rty were many of the best known society women ot the city. The rooms were elaborately decorated with yards and yards of evergreen ropes, holly and mistletoe. In all of the doors were rope portieres of evergreen., From the cor ners of the rooms to the chandeliers were evergreen ropes which formed a pretty canopy overhead. The color scheme WaS carried out in red in the dining room. In one corner of one of the parlors was an artistic Moorish corner piled with cushions. The doors were carpeted with pretty rugs. In the everting an informal affair was enjoycti by a large number of guests. The pro gramme consisted of music and a gym nasium exhibition participated in by about thirty men. The favors in the afternoon were two little trianglesthe Y. M. C. A. emblem, and the words, "Mind, Body, Spirit"tied with yellow ribbons; ort the ba,ck in gold letters were the words "The New Century," and the following couplet: "Great is it in tills Dawn to be alive, But to be young is very Heaven." At the Y. W. A. Equally aS attractive were the Y. Iv. c. A.. rooms, and the ladies who re ceived there. The colors used in all of the rooms were red and green; palms, evergreen and red carnations predomi nated. In a little red-decked room off of one of the parlors punch was served by a number of young girls dressed in red. Tne gymnasium was converted into a dining room for the occasion. and as in ail cases most of tne decorations were there. Ropes of evergreen formed an effective canopy overhead, and across one corner Wag a, huge Oriental corner piled Ingo with pillows, At one end of the room a big music box played during the afternoon. The round polished table had a pretty Battenburg center piece and a high cut glass vase of scarlet carnations, and was lighted by candelabra ablaze with red candles. Re freshments of turkey salad, bread and butter sandwiches and coffee were served. The Y. W. C. A. colors are green and white, and the favors were white satin ribbons lettered in green. In the evening a "new centurY partY" was enjoyed by many of the young pcsr ple of the city at the Y. W. C. A. rooms, Music and bowling formed the principal amusements of the evening, though a fortune teller was not the least of the attractions. Miss Flo Bates was dressed in gypsy costume and acted as seer for the occasion. A special musical num ber was by Mrs. la H. Strickler and Mrs. Eli G. Foster. At Mrs. Sim's. The receiving party next in size was at the home of Mrs. E. T. Sim, On Har rison street.

In a. small room off the second parlor Steinbeig's orchestra. played during the evening. Evergreens. holly and.mistletoe formed the decorations in the two parlors, but the dining room was charming in red and green. On tho bare polished table was an exquisite Eatterburg center piece on which rested a high vase brim ming. over with red carnations. The sideboard and china cabinet were massed with holly and mistletoe with vases of carnations in the midst. There were candelabra. in all of the rOlarn3 with red candles and the gaslights were all red-shaded. Thirty ladies received, and a corresponding number of gentle men were invited for an 8 o'clock SUP per, after which the remainder of the evening was spent in playing cards. The prizes were won by Miss Anna Marie Nellie; and Mr. Luther Burns. The floors were canvassed and the evening ended with an informal dance. The favors in the afternoon were small cards contain ing copies of Gibson heads done in pen and ink. At Mrs. Sweet's. - 'Mrs. T. B.

THAT AWFUL MESSAGE. ----- How Governor Humphrey Surprised the Legislature In 18!)0, when the Farmers' alliance swept nearly everything off the boards in Kansas, leaving' the Republicans the state ticket by a close margin. there was much caucusing and discussion between the election and the meeting of the legis lature, by the "State house crowd." Gov ernor Humphrey had been re-elected, and it was the belief of the Republican lead, ers, among them Ben Simpson. Bill Hig gins, George Peck, Bernard Kelly, Bill Martindale and others, that the governor should give the alliance a message for their whiskersfor most of them wore very long' whiskers. Governor Humphrey's message covered nearly every topic from Baxter Springs to Good land, and from White Cloud to Liberal. It was the longest message ever submitted by EL governor to a defenseless legislature. D. O. Me Cray, who was ex ecutive clerk under Humphrey, was dele gated to deliver the message to the house and senate. When he walked up the cen ter aisle in the house and announced to the speaker that he was "directed by the governor to deliver to the house EL mess age in writing," Captain Joseph G Waters sat at the reporters' table in front of him and gave him a sly wink. Then Waters asked one of the reporters for a sheet of paper on which he indited these lines: My dearly beloved, D. O. Mc Cray, On the governor's message I've this to say: Of all things modern the message beats all, To read it through, you should start in the fall. It discourses of matters no earthly ac count, And compared with the sermon once spoke , on the mount, It contains by precision, just two million more ems, And longer than dirt road from Leeds to the Thames. And the noble old hayseeds, as each sat at his desk, Bold Roman, and Greek. and quaint Ara besque. They put down their feet and demanded a stop, Declared they must get home in time for a crop, That if it was read they didn't see how The corn and potatoes, this spring they could plow. And when you started to read gave re , minder and hint And adopted a cloture, with their leave to print. With thisthe last opportunity lied! And the message goes down the ages unread.
