THE PEANUT CLUB. ttalqne Ohio Organisation Formed by Society Girls. “I’ll bet you haven’t a club in this town that can hold a candle for orig inality to the one we have in Lorain,” observed William Nixon, a business man of that Ohio town, who was at the Griswold House in Detroit recently, says the Detroit Free Press. “They call it the Peanut club,” he continued, smiling, “and to be eligible one must have rolled a peanut from Dexter street to the loop, North Broad way, which is up through the business section of the town. Oh, it’s a great club. The members are all society girls, and I understand that the coming winter the initiation will be changed slightly to include the novitiate blow ing a feather in front of her while propelling the peanut with her left foot. Great town, Lorain.” . Connt Witte’s Opportunity. Count Witte stands out as the hero of the hour, says Charles Johnston in Harper’s Weekly. More than that, he is now one of the three most conspicu ous personalities in the world, and the nation at whose head he stands is the second in the world in point of terri tory and the first of the white nations in population. Count Witte has de served well of the Russian empire. He has deserved well of the Russian peo ple. He has deserved well of humani ty. The czar, left to reactionary coun selors like Pobiedonostseff, might have deluged his land in blood and buried his throne in destruction. The people, led by the anarchists and revolutionists, might have plunged into disorder, mis ery and chaos. Count Witte bridged the chasm. Possessing the full confi dence of the czar and with the laurels of Portsmouth still green upon him, he did not hesitate to withstand the czar and tell him unwelcome truth. Stand ing for order, he yet came forward as the champion of the people, the her ald of the people’s will. Yet he made no concession to lawlessness or dem agogy, but stood firmly for stability and ordered freedom. He now reaps his reward and as the head of Rus sia’s first constitutional cabinet will bold the destiny of the nation in his hands. ©veilid Butterflies Among: Violets. It appears that the popular bouquet of violets, which has been a great con venience to those who do not know what to order in the way of floral of ferings, is to take to itself added hon ors this fall. Florists are setting forth bunches of these modest flowers with three purple orchids almost imbedded among them. The orchids are Said to look like enormous butterflies pinned as prisoners into the violets, their deli cate wings fluttering above the round nosegay. Oct. 8.
