However, no harm has been done so far. Mrs. Potter ha* got what she was after, a chance on the public stage and ; may turn out well. I'm sural hope ; so. Well, the fact* of the ca*e are these Mr*.

Whitnevto apjiear in private theatrical* for 'the benefit of a charity. .She came with the expectation and intention of creat ; ing a «ensation. of getting an adver tisement which would make her avail able as theatrical material In other words, she had the stage fever, and knew that if she could get notorietv enough she might appear in a play as a professional without going through the hard school in which legitimate actors hare to studv. • The Russian Honeymoon * was the plav in which she appeared at the National Theater: and although the house was crowded with a fashionable audience, and Mr- Potter appeared at her best, she did not make any sort of a sensnticm. The honors were carried off bv Mis.* Kiddle daughter of Judge Kiddle, ex-member of Congress from Ohio, and a young fellow named Hubbard, who has ate pea red in comic opera* " Mr*. Potter was disappointed and disgu<ted Through her manipulation the play was repeated at Baltimore but she made no sensation there. Then she got up a charitT entertainment at Mr< Whitney's, to which the ticket" were <lO and sold only to invited guests. It was announced that the f-reme de la creme of Washington would be there, and that the ii«t o: those who attended would be printed in the newspaper*, so that everv seal waa sold.

Well, the British Minister's daughter plaved a solo or the isther. a member of the Herman legation banged awhile on the piano, two or three prettv girls sang love song-, and Mrs, James Brown Potter recited a poem. Mrs. Whitney serve-! champagne and ices during the per ! *rmati< e. and everybody had a good time, but Mrs Potter completely failed again to create the sensation she ex pected. " The performance was on Wednes day night. On Saturday an armv officer came to me and a«ked if I could not ass-x in working the Sundav pa j>er* in the interest of Mm Potter whose husband wa» an intimate friend of hi*, he said, and would be greatly rrat.fied at any notice hi* wife received.

I had questioned him some, and soon discovered it was notoriety the ladv was after; so 1 suggested that I write a communication accusing her of •hocking the audience bv reading an inde--ent poem He was frightened and remonstrated.

I argued with him a while, and «bowed that such an attack would bring every friend she had to her defense I < on\inced him that it would be the best sort of an ad ver*,-er;ieiit. but be would not consent to it until he had consulted with Mrs Potter ' He jumpeii in a cab. rode up to Whitney's, and so**n returned to say that Mr* Potter wa* not only willing to -land the racket, but thought it wa« a «pler ii.i scheme I then went tothe ofli<-e of the Sunday I'apital and asked the editor if he had heard what a shock Mr> Potter had cause.! the aristocracy lev readinr a poem that was "ff color at the Whitney reception <>f course he jumj-ed at the hait »nd wa* flopping ar »onil in a attatlte He «ent an and rot ac. yof the poem n*erviewe»l Mrs Potter, wbosa d she ha.) nointen tun to offend p«Wi' sentiment, and a> ted as if she was awfully «<>rrv she had de» In the meantime I had *een the ed: tors of the other Sunday papers and the New York ■ I"'espuii-ients and rot tberu all eraXV about the V..

" mwrnnnam. The newspaper* are still discussing . the many fine points of Ute wonderful Whitney baby, and relating wonderful thing* about the christening of that , prominent infant. Fay. the Washing ton correspondent of the Louisville j Courier-Journal, gossips as follows con cerning that interesting event: Fresh and interesting incidents are constantly being added to those which were mentioned by the press at the time of the christening of little Doro thy Whitney, and the celebration of the event at the bouse of her parents. I nknown at the time to all save the rector of St. John's church. Mrs. Whit ney . before leaving the chancel, handed a note to the Rev. Sir. Leonard. When be opened it he read words to tif fol \ lowing effect •• If my dear little Dor othv could speak, I am certain she ! would express her gratitude to you for : the inestimable benefit you hare just conferred upon her, and in her name I beg you will accept the inclosed as an Easter offering for the benefit of St. John's Orphanage." The inclosed was a check for the munificent sum of JSOOO. Mr Leonard could not conceal bis de light at receiving such a generous thank-oSfring. and afterwards showed the delicate and touching note with the check to many of those who are interested in the Orphanage. Mrs. Whitney regards this baby as a gift sent to take the place of the dear little daughter who died of diphtheria in Pans four years ago. Everything in • onnection with the sickness and death of her little girl was heartrending. The child was taken sick in a Paris bote), and. according to the customs which prevail in England and France, under no circumstances is a case of sickness allowed to remain in a hotel. Mrs. Whitney was forced to take her child to a hospital. She was accompanied by her friend. Mrs. Lawrence Hopkins, in whose arms the little sufferer drew her last breath. Mrs. Hopkins came from Chicago to be present at the christ ening of baby Dorothy, and is still the guest of Mrs. Whitney. c*«ißr. She's a flirt, and she knows it. Expert, and she shows it In each word and act. Sbe laugh? and she chatters. She chaffs and she flatters Mankind to distract. Her shy little glances I try, as she dances. To follow, in vain. Each man she entrances— Who can her advances Enchanting disdain ? I sigh: she is tender; I fly to defend her From trouble or harm. She smiles, and I woo her. Her wiles bring me to ber. Subdued t>y her charm She's a witch, and she knows it. She's rich—who'd suppose it, So simple her art? I love her—confound her! And hover around her— But has she a heart ? Etc hanqt. [4"m» Francwj CA -v+tclt. ] lam about to give away a secret. I think the way (tin;* talk of voung men behind their bark* is shameful. Young ; men never dispraise girl* until thev are 1 jilted, and that feeling only lasts about : fortv-eigbt hours, be<au-e another girl tunis up. When a fellow gets dis charged from his employment two or three times, he finds it'very hard to ire! anybody to have confidence in him. But he can be kicked out of a whole row of houses, one at a time, ami the girls in the next block will reach for him all the tame. I know a fellow who has been jilted twentv-five times in dif ferent neighborhoods, and be is now in tow of about half a dozen girls. Those girls all have a kind of secret code. You know how it is. You are introduced to a girl. She invites you to call. You call. She invites you to a party. You go. She introduce* you to a whole circle. That whole circle discusses you. calmly apportions you to three or four: they gradually" re duce themselves to one. Then you're lost. She wearies of you and you get k:cked out of the circle. Wen. all of those girls have discussed every one of your young men friends the same wav This is what a cynical girl told me "I don't know of my own knowledge. But talk of trades-unions and Knights of Labor! Their organization dwin dles into absolute crudeness when compared with the 1". O. M. G.— United Order of Marriageable Girls. J don't sav this is <ll tlv ibe w»v the thine is done: Hit it's the principle, condensed. Thev have a kind of se cret rejri-tcr and they have you ail down fine.
