"Society in New York is so dreadfully

is. Hut is tb«*re a community In the world
where society—define 1 as .t is by Webster—

A young singer wishes to make a début
upon tlie «ouvert stage. Does he engage
assistants, tnke a hall waste his probably
»lend t substauce in lavish newspaper adver

place. He quietly thinks over his circle of
acquaintance« au 1 if within it he counts no
great social magnate, he is almost certain to
know sonieLidy w u<>does know a great social
magnate, aud to his friend makes know n his
desire to sing upon some occasion at the
house of the G. K, M. Now, the friend very
likely is aware that the G. 8. M. is bored to
death in the «'ffort to tin 1 something now to
ent« rtaiu her numerous and frequent gueets
with. Partly through a good-natured will
ingness to help the musical aspirant, and
partly through a still greater willingness to
put tho Magnate under a certain obligation,
the friend suggests to tho Magnate that Mr.
J. or Miss B. is a charming singer or a de
lightful player, who has never appeared in
public, although distraught managers have
besieged them to do so; but that it is barely
possible that be or she «night I« induced to
perform upon a strictly private occasion in
the drawing room of tin Great Social Mag
nate. Ihe Magnat«*, caught by the notion
of presenting a genuine novelty, legs the
intermc liar y friend to convey a cordial in
vitation to the artist to attend Ler next re
ceptio.n. It i* then artfully given «ut tliat

one; »he is known to lie a patron, and is
presumed to be a judg > of Art, w ith a com

The even ng comes; the musician dues hia

the gue*t* crowd about with compliments

two or three, embolden«! by the Magnate s
example, l»-g him to perform at their house«.
The next day the society journals, and the
daily journals w ith a society c< lunin—alas,
that the*.« who have none are the rare ex
ception !—mention with high prai*e Mr. J.'s
debut at Mrs. Magnate's elegant entertain
ment. The curiosity of other wvnal sets
is aroused, and when they learn that the
musician will appear at some other private
house they make an effort to get invited to
bear him. '1rs. Magnate an«i her set hav

Private viuwsof |«iblic picture exhibitions
have long been a favorite means of u*ing
social influence for professional benefit.
Nearly all tho art societies have some kind
of an entertainment before their shows open
to the paying public, to which are invit«»d
not only influential members of tho press,
but, in far greater nutnbers, influential mem
lers ct society, e^ieciolly those who
are known to buy pictures or be
likely, from the ltticrulity of their means, to
buy picture*, Of course, the invited feci

exhibiting artists and many of the r frien Is,
have a very pleasant time socially, catch a
few g.iinp**» of tlie pictnres, aud go away
to son» l, with the enthusiasm born of the
occasion, a good report of the painters'
work. This torra <«f advertising has of
late been emplovel by individual artists
in connection with their own work. An
artist Lni-bes ai. important picture, and,
desiring to give it t. "good send off," ts

ever to yourself and others: "What is it

We're naught but accid**utal at ms and

Make up your mind at or near what is

and customs as they were twenty odd years

years behind tlie time* and your fa«-e will
al*o assume a bellind-tbe time ancient grave
yard expression. If you will jersist in
always looking back your fa.e will look
bark. When you live so much in vour back
brain the back of your head tri«*s to become
the front. This causes confusion. It's like
sticking the back of the bouse on the front.
Hope looks always with eager, glowing
countenanre ahead. Rétros;»*«-! may serve
for an hour's entertainment ; but if you in
sist on livin g in the graveyard of the [«n-t

ugliness observe these directions B. itow
all the trouble you «'an. Thre«^fourth* of it

will «m your face. Cultivate th * pout. It

grow to be a deformity if allowed to "set
