THE DUKE'S FRIEND AGAIN.
B—HW VCra. Arthur Pasr.t R* saws Bar Friendship With Alexia. Much Interest Is manifested over the renewal of the friendship between the beautiful Mrs. Arthur Paget and the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia, uncle of the caar. His. Paget first met the grand duke when she was Minnie Stevens, a school girt In New York, In the early seven ties. Young Alexis created great havoc among the hearts of high society belles ' > i una. ARTHUR PAGBT. ta those days, numbering nmong his ar dent admirers the attractive and ac complished dnughter of Mrs. Paran Stevens. The grand duke was also smitten with the charms of the fair young American girl, and during a boating party given In Ills honor he was con spicuously uttentlve to her. Minnie Stevens went to England a year or two after the grand duke's visit to New York, and her beauty created a genuine sensation, much to the delight of her mother. Many American girls had previously made successes In English society, but none hnd ever been received Into the heart of the royal family as had the be witching and beautiful Minnie Stevens. The recent cementing of Mrs. Taget's Old friendship for the Ofnnd Duke Alexis Is frequently alluded to In high society circles here, and the still beau tiful matron attracts more attention than falls to the lot of other famous American beauties.—London Letter. Womin'a I.OYP of Social Position. "Perhaps the fetich to which we wo men attach the most undue Importance Is social position." writes An American Mother In The Ladles' Home Journal. ,r We set out with the creed that we are all equal and then spend much of our lives In struggling to force our way Into some petty circle which Is barred against us or to bar our own against some of our neighbors. Nothing could be more ridiculous than the many foundations on which we Americans base our claims to aristocracy. The belief Is almost universal that the pos session of a certain enormous number of millions constitutes a caste which stands on the level of royalty. But short of those "stupendous heaps of gold money floes not always command precedence here, especially In our ■mall towns and villages. We are all of us ready with our gibe at the new rich as If our own blood had been pure as that of Daimlo for a thousand years. Our claims to high caste are often based upon some mythical Judge or baronet far In the dim past or that wo llTe In the most pretentious house In the village. I have known the posses sion of a Grecian portico to give social ascendency to one family over a town full of neighbors plebeian only In that they had no porches at all. So vague yet so strenuous are our Ideas of caste." Aa Orlalaal KntrrUlnmrnt. St. Paul reports an original entertain ment which the Inventing hostess call ed a century party. Each guest at the St Paul evening was provided with a pencil and a slip of paper bearing the names of six authors-Dickens, Irving, Emerson, Kipling. Byron and Sienkle wlcs. The test was to write down as many works of each as could be re membered, the prize going to the win ner of the paper with the longest list correctly nnmed. To pronounce prop erly the names of famous persons was the next competition. For tins each guest was furnished with a list which he was asked to read aloud. Some of the names solecltd were De Reszke, ciiopln, Faure, LI Hung Chang, I'ade rewskl, Munkaczy and more, nnd though they are on everybody's lips glibly enough It beenme a difficult mat ter to read them with every proper ac cent and Inflection, while the hostess eat by armed with the dictionary that was taken ns the standard for the even ing. The third test was In the defini tions and synonyms of a certain list of words, the task to be completed In a half hour. Now that prizes are accept ed as a necessity of any entertainment these new competitions to secure them will bo welcome. Microbe. on Doorknobs. The latest lair to which scientists have traced the merry microbe is the doorknob. The organisms thrive on these Innutrltlous substnnces, It ap pears. and In a round of calls one may collect a variety of germs from the doors of cnbs, houses and trolley cars. The danger may be obviated by anti septic gloves. It Is said; but, consider ing the unconcern with which women now gather up the bacteria of the streets with their sweeping dmperles, one does not expect them to be Inordi nately nervous about the few organ- Isms that may attach themselves to their augers.
