Billy Ledger; Gossip COMPLETELY hypnotized by the symmetry of her sllkep-clad ankles as she boarded, with some difficulty, the Walnut street car, I did not at first recognize her; not, In fact, until we collided in reaching for the same strap. Her face was clouded and the usually quite maddening dimples had for the moment dis appeared. "Oh, it's you, is )tt" she frowned; "I supposed you were one of the customary crowd of males who hold back and wait to watch us poor women struggling with our narrow skirts and those awful car steps. There was a time when the men elbowed us out of the way during the afternoon strap-hangers' rush, but nowadays they all hold, oht so politely back, cloaking their crocodile thoughts beneath the convention of entirely assumed politeness." With the customary hyena-like Joy expressed wherj one hears of anybody being "stuck," they are telling the story among the clubs of a trip recently taken by a prominent middle-aged Philadelphia gentleman to New York. It seems that he is by no means of the sporty, bld )iaded row, bright light type, but, on the con trary, the sort we have been brought; up to regard as of. the "old school" and, therefore, scarcely up to date, Jlence. when he volun teered to take two young debutante nieces to the Big Burg on a sort of tour of inspection ho did not quite realize what he was In. for. Their first desire upon arriving was to tUU a famous dancing establishment, where one of the originators of the ultra-modern terpalchor an art had established himself on a rmet. lux urious sale. Having risen from a hotel bel-hop to his present exalted position, he is now owe of Kw York's Idols, or ideals, whichever ye please, and he is. therefore, very expensjfo, Otr iwtaophisttBated hero, havi&ff in mind the eld-IMblsned 4aneiAg teaabera of 39 years as, MMtd hi) two youthful proUgea to the geWen portal- Me was swwrated from six perfectly good doUars bfor be was permitted to paia through than- Tb little parly wwa ton ushered into an elaborately deaor&tad. taajgoja and taar rdr4 the usual tea. asd raafilnt Ite aa by a ftsxotli: Ngro. agearated ajt aem. tiiiti mnmwMI&c a was blwii a appoint 1 zJsmm&ti&h MISS MA1UE LOUISE STARR rholo by Engcn.

All three were surprised at such condescension, nnd as tho girbj wero wild to bo nblo to return to Philadelphia and boast of having actually danced with so famous a personage; they promptly accepted the Invitation. Tlmo passed. He danced divinely, first with ono nnd then with tho other. After each num ber he would politely Inquire whether they would caro for another and, overcome by tho kindness nnd good nature, they wero only too delighted.

Needless to state, tho llttlo New York outing was cut a trifle shorter than had at first been Intended. BILLY LEDGER.

A veritable, midway, minus tho hawking usually a dominant and most annoying feature of tho typical midway, was visited, can be vls Mtcd and. It Is hoped, will bo visited right here in tho heart of town, where one can do Christ mas shopping or afternoon tealng, all In tho pleosantcst surroundings. This spot Is to be found In tho ballroom of Horticultural Hall from 2 o'clock this afternoon until 10 o'clock tonight, likewise tomorrow. The cause of It all Is the lack of funds of St. Alartha's Settle ment House, nt 8th street and Snyder avenue, and tho willing hand has been lent by the Epis copal Diocese of Pennsylvania, who. In splto of wars nnd rumors of wars, havo come to the aid of this charity most nobly. Alost of tho Episcopal churches in tho city nre represented In some way, and booths have been erected and decorated with most gratifying results. In one corner Is a delightful little nursery filled with dolls of alt ages and nationalities. After making a purchase one takes Dolly across to the Aillllnery Shop, where the very latost Alade-ln-Amerlca Idea Is exploited and where Dolly selects a fetching bonnet to perch n-top her elaborately colffed head. Another very clover idea is the Automat, where 10 cents secures the privilege of pressing the button to see what will happen next. From there one goes the rounds of cake and candy, chlnaware, fancy work booths and fortune telling, with the oblqultous "movie" as a wind-up. A bevy of attractlvo girls as aids, in costume, some attired in quaint creton frocks, with large picture hats framing their pretty faces, others garbed as nurses and still others as Fronch maids, these last acting as lemonade venders, add much to tho scene.
