THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN : SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 18. Highest of all in Leavening Strength. Latest U. S. Gov't Report. ABSOLUTELY PURE SOCIAL LIFE IN PHffiHIX. A List of the Events of the Last Seven Days. Pertinent Reply to Some Questions Concerning: Society-Successful Hod of the Young Men's Dancing Club Other Notes. What is the good of society? What is the sense of reporting so-called so ciety events? I received yesterday a letter era bodying these questions. I will under take to answer them. Without good company, all dainties lose their true relish, and, like painted grapes, are only seen, not tasted. Social intercourse ia a very important aid to human enjoy ment The man who has no society , becomes morbid in his feelings and ' views and disagreeable in his opinions; y grows self-conceited. To such an one life becomes an entirely unsatisfac tory, one-sided and comparatively use less possession; Therefore, all should cultivate social relations and thus give vent to the social instincts of their na tures. 1 i It is good to have self and personal cares go into the background occasion ally and let the interests and welfare of others come to the front. There is also real culture and refinement to be gained in good society. One learns something of gentility and politeness by the action and influence of social currents, just as. stones on the sea beach become round, smooth and pol ished through the continued friction of dashing waves. While society is good by way of spice or variety, while it has many no ble and useful functions to perform in the development and refinement of hu man nature, yet, perverted from its true intent, it is changed into a source ' ' of great evil. It encourages and ne f cessitates extravagance in dress; it in ; citifies late hours at night, which 1 should be given up to "tired nature's seet restorer, healthful sleep; it oc- hsions the calling out of much bitter ness In the line of envy and jealousy between rivals and opponents, and serves to evoke much hypocritical pre tense in the way of friendship. Such society as this is a curse, and the less one has of it the better. Sin cerity and truthfulness and unaffected naturalness and ease are the only so cial qualities which shine with steady luster or benefit by their attractive light. The first of a series of socials to be given monthly by Miss Lizbeth Y. Al len and Miss Talbot will take place December 1 at the home of Mrs. Wal ter Talbot. As this is the initial num ber, the invitations have been limited almost entirely to- the young people, The second will be given a month later. This will be for older ones musically inclined, and will take place in the morning at 11 o clock. With such musical people as Miss Allen, Miss Talbot, Miss Maud Walsh, Miss Sargent, Mrs. Rickenbaugh, Mrs. Walter Bennitt. Mr. W. C. Barnes and Mr. Dunn, together with literary tal ent such as Miss Yaeger's and the genial hospitality extended to all guests by Mrs. Walter Talbot, these musicales promise to be the most bene ficial, as well as. the most enjoyable, of any such affairs ever given in this city. , The football game Thursday after noon was well attended by the elite of Phoenix.

Strange as it may seem in this day md ag-e, the rising and setting of tho im was the greatest of natural phe . omena to the ancient scholars. They - ere greatly puzzled to know how the s ime sun which plunged into the ocean :io a fabulous distance in the west could reappear the next morning at an equal ly great distance in the east. And, as Sir Eobert Ball points out, a number of remarkable theories were advanced, and every one of them wrong. "The old mythology asserted that after the sun had dipped in the western ocean at sunset (the Iberians'and other an cient nations actually imagined that they could hear the hissing of the waters nvhen the glowing globe was plunged therein) he was seized by Vul can and placed in a golden goblet. This strange craft with its astonishing car go navigated the ocean by a northerly course, so s to reach the east again in time for sunrise the following morn ing.

When a Chinese enperor dies the in telligence is announced by dispatches to the several provinces, written with purple ink, the mourning color. All per sons of rank are required to take red silk ornaments from their caps, with the ball or button of rank; all subjects of China, without exception, are called upon to forbear shaving their heads for 100 days, within which period none may marry, play upon musical instruments or perform any sacrifice. Old Shoes for Doormats. A use has been found for old shoes, a derelict product that has heretofore-defied the efforts of that class of claimants who view with despair the absolute loss of anything, says the New York Jour nal. The leather is cut into little disks of various shapes. These are set on edge and held together with long wire staples, and the result is an odd looking but flexible and serviceable door mat, which seems to do the work excellemt lj' of the wire and steel mats that are in such general use in outer halls. The leather scrap mat is very cheap, and will Over Thirty Years Without Sickness. Mr. H. Wettstein, a well-known, enterprising citizen of Byron, 111., writes: "Before I paid much atten tion to regulating the bowels, I hardly knew a well day; but since I learned the evil re sults of constipation, and the efficacy of AYER'S Pills, I have not had one day's sickness for over thirty years not one attack that did not readily yield to this remedy. My wife had been, previ ous to our marriage, an invalid for years. She had a prejudice against cathartics, but as poon as she began to use Ayer's Pills her health was restored."
