"That one-half of the Inhabitants of New-York
has no conception of the manner In which the other
half exista goes without saying." remarked a so?
ciety woman recently; "but I never realized how
different the lives, habita and occupations of the
rich of our own differ from those of 'nou? autres,'
who are only moderately well off. until the other
day at a sort of a drawing-room debating club thit
we started this winter. The various methods of
transit were under discussion, when Mrs. Midi?,
who was my neighbor, said to me:
" 'I cannot speak from experience tn any of these
matters, for I have never been in a public convey?
ance in my life, except, of course, ?he railroads.'
" 'Do you mean to say.' I exclaimed--for 1 could
not realize that a woman fifty years old, living In
New-York all her days could, whatever might ba
her condition, really live so apart from the great
mass of her fellow -creatures?'that you have never
been In nn omnibus Of ??reetcar?"
" 'Never.' she answered.
" 'But the elevated railroad?- I persisted. 'What
do you do when you wish to go a long distance?'
" 'I drive," she replied, looking mildly aston!she?l
'Surely you do not climb thosi? stairs and ko In
those awful things?'
"No wonder that these people feel os I? they
were made of different clay from the rest of hu?
manity! No priatocrat in Europe could hold bsrself
more proudly aloof from the hoi polloi than do
euch women who by Iba power of money, and of
money alone, are thus alienated from their kind.
Such cla?? distinctions betweea those who have and
those who have not. based upon nothing nut sor?
did considerations, Is undoubtedly wl?i?-nlng the
breach between the rich and toe poor In this coun?
" "They mean well, these rich women,' said a hard?
working philanthropist, who had devoted years V?
the people and tbetff Deeds, Dot merely bodily, but
intellectually and socially. 'And we greatly need
the money that they give; but 1 do wish they would
not drive down to our clubs with their carriages
and footmen. I did not like to say that It was In?
appropriate and tended to destroy rather than fos?
ter the feellrg of friendship find self-respect that
we are trying to have established, bat 1 tried to
suggest to Mr?, froesilg. who has taken so much In?
terest and donated SOCb a large sum to our
library, that It would save her so much time If she
came down in the L.'
" "My dear Miss T-,' she exclaimed, 'I would
rot po Into these slum? for ?the world without John
and Thomas to protect me,' a remark which showed
how hopelessly Ujn rant she was of the real mean?
ing and scope of our work."
Apart from the ethical side of the question, one
loses an immense amount of interest and amuse?
ment by keeping one's self aloof from one's fel?
low creatures.
"There are three ways of taking an airing In
New-York that I consider perfectly delightful,"
said an independent iroman of good social stand?
ing. "One is a hansom, another Is on top of a
Fifth-are. 'bus, and the last, which I must admit
has soSMtlmes its drawbacks in the way of com?
panionship, though it is the most amusing of the
three, is on an open tram."
"Oh, mamma." exclaimed a society girl to her
mother, who had just signalled one of th^se last
named open cars, "you aurely would not be seen In
one of those things?"
"You may do as you please. Elisabeth," said the
stronger-mind?-.! parent, "hut as for me, I consider
my social position Is sufB? leatly good to allow of
my riding in an opeo car if I choose," whereupon
ehe mounted the tram, and lefl her more aristo?
cratic daughter .landing on the pavement.

flat box pleats edged with tiny ruffles extending
to the elbow, and thon a deep gathered ruffle sa
a finish.
Another pretty matinee has s loose-hanging, ao

like un Inverted V from the neck, th? back having
tho same Insertion of accordion-pleated china silk.
T.he rest of tho Jacket Is of white crepe, trimmed
w'lth bands of Oriental embroidery, where the
Jucket opens to show the accordion-pleated back
and front.
A gracious-looking garment, which Is half tea
gown and half morning gown. Is of white flannel,
lined with white silk. The robe Is held In at the
waist by a ribbon, and the entire body Is covered
by a large Maria Antoinette fichu of white China
?ilk. boruered with a ruffle of deep lac? edging.
Over this Is a V-shaped collarette, also of lace,
gathered In front like a Jabot, nnd a full ruche
of the same lace at the top of the wide collar of
draped white satin. The elbow sleeves are of
white flannel and are finished at the bottom by a
deep ruffle of white china idlk, edged with lace.
The tight Marie Antoinette sleeves, with the grace?
ful deep ruffle at the elbow, will be a favorite
style this summer, a fashion which displays a
pretty arm to the greatest advantage.
Another noticeable ch'iracterlstl?; of this season's
gowns is that not one of them opens in front, the
latter feeing In one pine, which fH.stens on the
?boulders and under the urms.
A pretty and simple way of making a gingham

Another n!ce-l>ok!ng fmck, which is trimmed with

In circles from the waist to a little distance below

"It Is Interesting to cultivate a deductive mind?
travelling, visiting or chance encounters all furnish
inexhaustible material." remarked a woman who
was more or less Interested In everything. "It was
after reading Conan Doyle'.? stories of th? detective,
Phor'.ock Hohnes, that I began, for my amusement.
to notice detail In order to see how much I could
find out. and It was astonishing how soon I bepan
to piece things together and how exciting it was.
To pc sure, my conclusions are often wrong, but as
my 'circumstantial evidence' injures no one,' it does
not signify, and sometimes my deductions are won?
derfully correct."

"The B-s are common people," said a fash?
