The famous phrnso, "tho Four nun dred," which has become synonymous In American ears with tho most fashlonablo and socially exclusive set In the population ot Nbw York In particular and of other American cltios and big towns in goneral, was born on March 25, 1888, when thore appeared In The Tribune a long interview With Ward McAllister. Tbe article was beaded "Socrets of Ball Giving," and In its opening paragraphs It treated of Mr.,McAlliitcr's ancestry and bis position In New York. When the in terviewing part of the story began, Mr. MoA Ulster told of tho organization of the Patriarchs' ball in 1873 and related vari ous little episodes of Interest connected with tho gentlemen who wero among Its first subscribers. Finally ho reached this point: "Society is nn occupation In Itself. Only a mat who has a good deal of lei sure and a tnstofor It can kocpupvilth its demands and with what Interests It. Bay what yon will, the modern loader of society must still have considerable of the old courtier and chevalier endowment to make a sucoess of It Numbers of people are In troduced In fashionable society who oan- jxot and do not make a success, and they fall oat. They cannot float themselves even when some ons fives them a good tint. These poplo bars not ths poise, ths acltcia for rollts conversation, the pol- Jack." SATURDAY.

CoufiUin.- S isnea ana acrercntlal manner, the Infinite capacity of good humor and ability to en tertaln or bo entertained that society de mands." lie paused for a moment, and when he spoke again, lol tbe famous phrase leu from bla lnsplrod lips: "Why, there are only about 400 people In fashionable New York society. If you go outside that number, you either strike people who are not at ease In a ballroom or else make other people not at eaee. See the point? Of course there are any num. ber of the most cultivated and highly re spectable, even distinguished, people out side of fashionable society. When we give a largo ball like tbe last New Year's ball, for 800 guests, we go outsido of the exclu slve fashlonablo set and Invite professional men, doctors, lawyers, editors, artists and the like. But the day when fortunes ad mittcd men to exclusive society has gone by. Twenty or thirty years ago it was otherwise. " From that point to the end Mr. McAl lister talked about famous dinners an suppers In tho history of New York's fash ionable entertaining, and also of tho most captivating dishes for such feasts of th socially eluct. Within a fortnight his statement about the number of persons I the fashlonablo set bnd been copied all over tho eastern part of tho country, and It gradually becamo solidly ingrafted Into tho popular colloquialisms of American slang and catch phrases. Mr. McAllister not long afterword, In another interview. qualified his estimate by explaining that be intended to convey tho idea that thcro wero 400 households in tho city tho mem bers of which wero In fashlonablo society, but hli qualification never got sufficient currency to kill tho original estimate.
