THE SCR ANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 12, -1895. SCRANTON SOCIAL NEWS AND GOSSIP Brfet Mentioa of What is Doinj In the Pleasure Way. BACHELORS' BALL EXCITES INTEREST General Anticipation of Scranton' Annual Social Event Which is Sev eral Years Passed the Experimen tal Stage Mauy Creations of Now York Modistes Will Uo Morn, l'rciiiiiiuury Duuce OrdersWhist is ICeceiviiis Attention Personal tiossip. Pcranto'n by this time knows pretty veil whut the Ilaehelors' hall Is an an nual event the ui)learance of which means a deal of anticipation nnd prep aration and the proportionate dtgrce of happy realization. The hall has ceased to be a thini? of curiosity, a medium of illustrating what Scranton 8 young society men can do when they try or an opportunity for Katherinir to see how tastily or hideously Airs. Sound-So can gown herself, U has run its course of tiiul und has become the tine bin social event of the year when pleasure on a lai'Be and excellent scale Is conducted properly und ue'coriiiiiK to the best ethics of custom. It Will take place Mew War's niKht. JOven now there might be published the names of over a score of promi nent women who have been or are now in New York city lieiiiK titled with the latest creations of fashionable mo distes. The prospective dancers and Hpeetators are, in fact, ns much con cerned with their preparations as is 1he liachelor committee itself. Accord ing to the Indications the ball may be expected to develop the greatest of its many successes. Vesterday the Invitations were is sued. There were Situ of them and of that number at least 150 were sent to people out of town. Last year the ball w.-is attended by. nearly fnO persons. This year's attendance will probably, . be hi riser. The Increase will not come from Scranton. however, as for two years, at least, people here have known beforehand, what each ball was aoinu to lie und have not missed behnj pre.s--cut, but there will lie many more rui sis from Wilkes-liarre, Curliondali', Hones-' dale and other local prints) who can no lunger put aside the opportunity to satisfy themselves that the Scrnnton liaehilurs' bull Is really as hit; ftod ni Untie as the newspapers and iielflo Buy. one of this year's Innovations will lie the Issuance In about ten days of preliminary dance orders. Last year was tried the experiment of withhold ing the order of the dances, printed or spoken, until the hour announced for opening the ball. This was done to protect people from abroad who had not an equal advantage with Scranton belles and men In possessing partners. I'he scheme, proper in its principle, diij not work so well as was hoped, as early Verbal enuaKemcnts made the with holdintf of the orders Ineffective. The lssuliiK of advance dance orders will ut least put the bad practice of anti ciitraeniciits in the best lit;ht possible. The dance order," by the way, will satisfy the lightest and must enduring of feet. It contains forty-eight nuiA In rs in all, half intermissions and half leculaily prescribed dances which In clude thirteen two-steps, eltrht waltzes und three landers, tippenhelm's Wilkes-liarre orchestra of fifteen pieces will play the regular dance numbers and Hanoi's bund of twenty-live pieces the.
