It may possibly be considered a work
of supererogation to call attention again
to the necessity of earlier hours at our
evening social functions. Cut there is so
much at stake, so much that will have
Us effect upon our health, our business
mill also upon our reputation for a proper
vnderslanding of the good forms of so
ciety, that it is worth while to once more
refer to this matter. There seems to ex
ist in the minds of many persons an
Idea that their belated attendance at an
evening reception indicates a very ultra
"swell" social condition. This Is errone
ous In the extreme, and can only be ex
plained upon the ground of youth or in
experience. Social customs and hours
are Lhe result largely of environment,
and In great cities one entertainment
rapidly crowds upon the heels of another,
and frequently two and three functions
will occur on the same evening. This
fact, of course, necessitates an irregular
appearance at one or more of them If
an effort Is made to be present at all
during some portion of the evening. But
two engagements for the same hours
rarely occur with us, as our city is still
email enough for us to find It possible to
arrange our entertainments so as not to
connict or ciasn. so we snouia ai once
dismiss from our minds a desire to em
ulate a fashion which only prevails In the
largest cities of the country, and then
only because of an absolute necessity.
More than this. In New York and other
northern cities of approximate size so
cial diversions are chiefly Indulged In by
the wealthy, leisurely class, with no reg
ular duties and limitations. The young
beaux of society are generally men whose
fathers have accumulated great fortunes
which their sons are making great efforts
to disburse according to the laws of
finance; and to breakfast at midday is
but the habit of these unoccupied speci
mens of manhood. 15ut with us, In this
busy Alabama town of modest propor
tions, wealth is a very rare, almost un
known condition with any of us, and any
man who Is worthy of consideration has
ads regular daily duties and obligations
which must be attended to whether he
retires early or late at night. While a
certain amount of social diversion should
be encouraged, there Is no excuse for any
recreation which Interferes with an hon
est and quiet performance of our business
requirements. To attempt both—late
4.ours and regular business duties—for
tiny length of time will certainly result In
physical Injury nine cases out of ten,
find finally necessitate the giving up of
cne or the other.
Fublic opinion is shaping Itself along
such healthy lines In this matter of late
attendance at evening entertainments
that the indication is that very soon no
young lady or gentleman who desire to
be considered in any degree •'swell” will
permit themselves to be later than 9:30
o'clock In greeting their hosts and host
esses this season in Birmingham. The
men and women who will do the enter
taining this winter desire earlier and
more sensible hours, and, as we all know,
there are certain inalienable rights which
belong to the entertainers, and no well
bred man or woman would wittingly ig
nore them. The same Improved hours
should apply to club recptlons, cotillions
and every other form of social gathering,
for the more neatly a club entertainment
approaches in its details and regulations
r private social function the more elegant
nnd enjoyable It is. This is a small mat
ter—this of adopting earlier hours—in
some respects, but it is one that should he
immediately regulated. We are too well
bred a community and are, In the major
ity. too familiar with the usages of good
society to continue to commit a blunder
that Indicates one of two things: a very
false Idea of what is really good form,
Or a deplorable inexperience in social
matters. With a little consideration and
opportunity either form of the trouble can
be obviated.
"While we are discussing this question,
which I assure you is being very warmly
considered by the best part of our com
munity, it is well to appeal to the young
gentlemen to inaugurate a reform in this
matter. This Is the easiest solution and
naturally the proper one. If every young
gentleman, when he makes an engage
ment with a girl for any entertainment,
will specify and Insist upon a prompt ap
pearance, either at a reception, cotillion
tor other functions we will soon witness a
change in our social conditions both
wholesome and desirable.
Home friend suggested a few days ago
the giving of what she termed "Cinder
ella parties,” and it is a most excellent
Idea. The Cinderella entertainments re
quire the guests to be present at 8:30
o’clock and to say "good night” at 12
o'clock. Such parties would prove a Mess
ing! to the busy, active young men of Bir
mingham and a boon to the men and
women who contemplate entertaining
this winter.
The members of the Tuesday afternoon

Tomorrow, November 1, is All Saints’
Pay, a day held very sacred by the Epis
copal and Catholic churches in all parts
of the civilized world. It is an occasion
set apart in memory of those whom “we
have loved and lost awhile.” In memory
of those who have gone before us into a
perfect existence this day Is kept, and
while solemn chants wing their heaven
ward way, they will mingle with those
of angels, who answer upon golden harps
this message from our human hearts.
Many a weary, tired life holds today
graves that tell of buried hopes and ago
nizing separations, and to them Ail
Saints’ Day comes as a benediction,
bringing with It a renewal of the hopes
of an eternal restoration and reuniting.
It is sweet to feel that our spirits may
mingle in love and well-nigh human sym
pathy at such a time, although between
us rolls the sen of death, and to know
that a time is coming—a grand, eternal
All Saints’ Day—when we may all keep
|he feast beyond the stars.
