We do not hear so much about the prevalence and destructlveness of "bridge" played for money here In New York, as we did two or three seasons ago, says the New York Times. Westward the course of tbi& fascinating and aleatory pastime seems to have taken Its way. Certain matrons of New York who were supposed to be accumulating handsome pin moneys by bridge will he disposed to resent, as unrefined, t the conduct tf an" astute couple In ZanesvlUe. v-'ho eked out their housekeeping expenses by skill at bridge, and who had the businesslike habit of mailing formal bills to Biich of ihelr guests and victims as had departed without paying their losses. That does look rather queer. But j really the sending of the bills la the I least objectionable part of the business. The renl wrong or It Is the inducements held out by the Bit 111 fit I to the unskillful to play (or money which they cannot nlTord to lose, and cannot pay. It Is In what mny he called the commercialization of social Intercourse. It Is to be feared that this commercialization has by no means gone so far In Zanesvllle as in more sophisticated American cities, where means are found to make seduced defaulters pay up, quite as effective as mailing bills to their addresses. On the other hand, it has by no means gone so far In nny American community as in' England. The clubman who ekes out his income by skill In whist ,ts not an attractive character, even if he plays fair. "I do not call a gambler a dishonest man," says Dr. Johnson. "I call him tin unsocial man." .In faci Rambling; anil society are, properly speaking, incompatible. But the crafty clubman- ia by no means the only "unsocial" character in British society. A recent ^English novel has for one of Its most powerful chapters the scene Iti1 which ? young girl is "roped In" by other young girls to loso more money than she can afford to lose, and saved only by the Intervention of a young American who compels tbq youthful harpies to disgorge. And the memory of Trim by Croft nnif Its scandal shows to what social heights th passion for getting the' .better of your associates may extend. The bridge sharps of Zanestrllle are rather to he congratulated upon the fHnkness with which they' showed that ? ?J 1V? they were Keeping & UUU, UllllUJ ULB pretext of diffusing social enjoyment. "Fantana" i WAS PUT ON UNDER DISADVANTAGES BUT PLEASED FAIRLY WELL ANYWAY. L a "Fmntana" played to a fair house at 3 the Grand last night and put up a Bport show, although tSie clrcum- d stances under which the opera was h ntnduced were altogether unfavorable. n No. f>0. which brought; the troupe here, v was several hours late and every m&" a and maid In the cast were worn out '' before the curtain rose. The greatest Daws in the production were In the ? chorus, the movement! was clumsy 1 and lacked precision and the music " was off time more than once. Harry 1 Macdonough. who played the part of r Hawkins, the valet,.made a hit with the audience and succeeded <r> tl a good deal of humor out of a part that'threatened at times to become n Heavy. His partner,* Miss Georgia 4' Bryioli, as Jessie the maid, played her a part well and received rounds of applaiisc. George Whyte, as Lieut. Sin- 3' clalre Warren, had a magnificent voice e and his companion, Miss Mae Botte aa ll "Fantasia," did some clever work. Her " voice was good and her song, "The to Farewell Waltz," with Whyte, made a hit. Miss Norma Bell in the part of Fnntana's school mate won laurels In the song, "Just My Style." Wm. B Blaldell, as Pasdolt the Frenchman, James Sullivan and Edith French, as the French girl, were all good. The a stage settings were ordinary and the v costumes were fairly good. p "tei DUPONT WILL ACCEPT b THE 8ENATOR8HIP. T y Says He Appreciates Honor Con- b ferred Upon Him by Delaware ?
