LADY BAMBLEB.
She Tells How She Was Shocked
and Gives Good Advice.
A small maiden, with the housewifely in
stinct early developed, was so overcome by
the untidy condition of Rice park that she
attacked the gravel walks with a miniature
broom. It is a pity that like enthusiasm
cannot be aroused in other quarters, for the
entire park looks as if it had been visited
by a heavy shower of paper, and bits ot
soiled paper don't exactly harmonize with
green grass.
White parasols are perfectly lovely in
themselves and for certain occasions, but it
Is a question if they are fitting adjuncts to
suits of dark wool.
***
"All over" embroidery makes dainty
yokes and sleeves for white dresses, but we
are told it is bad taste to use it for colored
gowns.
***
It is really quite surprising the number of
young men who take the girls to eat ice
cream, but who "really, thank you, don't
care for it myself."
***
But speaking of ice cream reminds me of
that young man who came into the cafe the
other evening so irreproachably gotten up
that an appointment was instantly sus
pected. No fair damsel appeared, however,
and the youth with a languid twirl of his
mustache and a languishing glance for the
maid, ordered refreshments for one; and
then he sat down and went through relays
of cake, ice cream and strawberries with
out removing the newest and tightest brown
mousquetaires into which his hands and
lists could possibly be squeezed. How
did he manage to do it ? and is it the latest
in table etiquette?
***
Bands of marabout in color closely resem
bling silver-gray fox are seen on suits of
cream-colored cloth, but look rather warm
for the time of the year.
***
For light summer reading, when the very
thought of anything instructive or improv
ing puts one in a perspiration, translations
from the French of Emile Gaboriau will be
found amusing and entertaining, and in
pleasing contrast to those polished essays
and elaborate analyses of character which
our modern American authors are so fond
i>f perpetrating. To be sure M. Gaboriau's
books closely resemble each other, inas
much as they all open with a deep and dark
mystery, the uuraveling of which by some
clever man making the story, and there is a
strange family likeness between his charac
ters; but so ingenious are the plots and so
bright and taking the style that your inter
est never flags till the last page records the
jniserable death oft the villain and the happy
Jnarriage of the injured hero to the beaute
ous heroine.
***
. I was awfully shocked when the young
man sitting behind me broke off
the string of commonplaces with which he
was entertaining the young woman beside
him between acts, to remark that he took a
young lady to the theater with him the pre
vious night, and that she wore a jersey,
and he didn't think she "had on anything
else." I felt at the time that it was really
somebody's duty to deliver a homily on
care In choosing topics for conversation in
public assemblages, but since then I have
come to J the conclusion that .perhaps the
time might bo better spent in advising the
girls to dress so that they may appear to
have on more than one garment. Women
burdened and weighed down with petti
coats? Nonsense! Why at present our ultra
fashionable ladies in their street suits re
semble nothing as much as trussed fowls;
and, far from being clothed in voluminous
petticoats, the underclothing is as nearly
skin-tight as can possibly be obtained.
***
One is constantly observing that the
cheapest cottons rival the most expensive
fabrics both in beauty of color and delicacy
of design. A bundle of samples of five cent
lawns show white and tinted grounds
strewn with sprays and clusters of the
quaintest old-fashioned flowers perfectly ex
quisite in their coloring, batchelor's buttons,
morning glories, ragged robins and tiny
moss-rosebuds being favorite designs.
***
If ever a look of heavenly peace and in
effable joy rests upon a human countenance,
it is found irradiating the features of a
burly policeman who has just kicked off
the sidewalk a very small and inoffensive
dog.
***
Tour silk gloves should this season be
either one of the shades of tan or black— tan
being the more fashionable— long
wrists neither buttoned nor laced but loosely
wrinkled. Mitts will be worn, but, unless
for young girls, should always be black.
***
Really it doesn't seem that the men have
any call to so loudly accuse the weaker sex
of so blindly following the fashions, for wo
men do usually have at least a vague idea
of what is individually becoming, while
men always seem engaged in a desperate
game of "follow your leader," and one of
them would as soon die as differ from his
neighbor in the shape of his necktie or the
cut of his coat. Why, sheep going through
a gap in a wall are calm, considerate and
reflecting as compared with these lords of
creation in their struggle after what they
regard as the correct thing in attire. Now,
just look at these gray felt hats. No au
thority, however great, could make them
popular with ladies, because a cold, bluish
gray is one of the most trying colors imag
inable; yet every other man you meet,
"Whether he be dark or fair, pale or sallow,
or rosy, handsome or ugly, wears one, and
as they are becoming to about one out of
500 quite a large percentage of gentlemen
are making guys of themselves. But they
are stylish, or think they are, and so are se
renely happy. • Lady Rambles.
A WEEK IN JUNE.
St. Paul Society Devoting' Itself to
Outdoor Pleasure.
The past week socially has been unusu
ally quiet, although perhaps not more so
than is to be expected at this time of year.
Private festivities have almost come to a
standstill, and-people have substituted for
them a variety of outdoor amusements.
Prominent among these are the omnipres
ent lawn tennis, horseback riding and
kindred sports, and a new departure, or
rather a revival of an old form of recreation,
namely, evening barge parties on the river.
This device, for whiling away the hours of
a summer evening amidst the beauties of
riparian scenery, while the senses are lulled
by the feeling of rapid and rhythmic motion,
has taken a strong hold upon that portion
of St. Paul society of which the boat club
forms an important factor. A large party
is usually given by one or two members of
the club, who issue the invitations, provide
the refreshments, and make themselves
generally agreeable to their fair guests,
with whom they occupy the stern sheets of
the barge. The motive power is furnished
by bronzed and hardy oarsmen, who do the
manual labor act for glory, finding an ample
reward in an occasional careless glance
from bright eyes in the stern.
After perhaps an hour or more of this
sort of enjoyment the party returns to the
discussion of refreshments on the island,
the hosts and visitors in a state of delight
ful coolness and the oarsmen luxuriating in
a state of blisters and perspiration.
; But life is full of compensations, and it is
only a question of a short time until the
toiler of this evening is himself an. enter
tamer and dispenser of island hospitality,
and the gilded youth who reclines among
the cushions in the stern will be toiling at
the bended oar.
GENERAL SOCIAL HAPPENINGS.
The club room of Unity church was the
scene of a very successful dramatic repre
sentation on Friday evening. The one-act
comedy, "A Pretty Piece of Business."
made up the first part of the program, while
the lively farce, ''Slasher and Crasher,"
closed the entertainment in a whirlwind of
merriment. This is the second presentation
of tfee latter piece within a few weeks, it
having been so successful upon a previous
occasion as to call forth a unanimous re
quest for a repetition.
The Ladies' Aid society of Christ church
held its annual sale at the guild room of the
church on Tuesday evening. There was a
line display of useful and fancy articles,
including many unique articles of paper,
lamp shades, pin cushions, etc. Straw
berries and ice cream were served during
the evening. There was a large attendance.
The sale was continued on Wednesday.
The ladies realized several hundred dollars
from the sale, which will be devoted chiefly
to the benefit of St. Luke's hospital.
The Old Settlers' association held its an
nual reunion and banquet on Monday. The
association is gradually thinning out as the
pioneers, whose first residence dates prev
ious to 1850, drop out of line. Good cheer
and good fellowship prevailed, however,
and the Merchants was the scene of as
merry a gathering as In former day. Col.
Allen and Dr. Day's joint discussion on
bugs excited great hilarity. The company
broke up at a late hour to meet next year
with probably diminished numbers.
Prof. Hermann Einil Zoch gave a grand
concert on Friday evening at the Park Con
gregational church, under the auspices of
the Park Church club. The program was
composed entirely of piano selections, but
such is the skill and variety of method of
this truly great artist that the large audience
sat entranced to the end. From a musical
standpoint the entertainment was one of
the most successful recently given in St.
Paul.
The musical and literary entertainment
given at the rooms of the Gospel Temper
ance union, on Thursday evening, was a
pronounced success. Every number was

Baker, Miss Mabon, the Misses Hawkins,
Mr. Geddes and Messrs. Price, Horn and
Wright took part in the program.
A reception was held by the Y. M. C. A.
Monday evening at the formal opening of
the new parlors and gymnasium of the as
sociation, at the corner of Ninth and Waba
sha streets. A large company of ladies and
gentlemen were present and inspected the
building, which called forth many expres
sions of surprise and delight at the com
pleteness of its arrangements. Seibert's
band was in attendance and played through
out the evening.
Christ's church was the scene of the wed
ing of two of St. Paul's well-known young
society people on .Wednesday evening, on
which occasion Mr. Thomas H. McKone
and Miss Lizzie McLaughlin were united
in the bonds of matrimony. The congratu
lations of hosts of friends follow the young
couple in their new venture.
The marriage of Miss Martha A., daugh
ter of A. E. Johnson, to Mr. William Fish,
Jr., of Madison, Wis., took place on Mon
day afternoon at the residence of the bride's
parents, No. 306 South Exchange street.
After a brief trip East the newly-married
couple will make their home in Madison.
On Friday evening the lady managers of
the Home for the Friendless gave their an
nual strawberry festival at the Exposition
rink. A regular supper was served to those
desiring it, followed by a promenade con
cert. The entertainment resulted very suc
cessfully.
On Sunday afternoon a very successful
meeting was held in the rooms of the Gos
pel Temperance union. The singing was
conducted by Mr. Hillman. A short ad
dress on the acceptation of the gospel was
delivered by Ben Hogan, the converted
pugilist.
A grand concert and hop took place last
evening at the Chateaugay hotel, White
Bear. The music was furnished by the
Hessian band. The hop was the first of the
season and was a brilliant affair.

MINNEAPOLIS NOTES.
That Dance in the Gay Sunbeams
of Fashion and Society.
There was no single event last week that
was calculated to stand Minneapolis society
on its head with excitement. On the other
hand the past six days were rather, event
less and rolled away, for the most part,
marked only by the dull monotony of early
summer. The lake season . has scarcely
opened and furnishes, as yet, no distinctive
events, while in the city there: is no spirit
of eayety moving. There were not a few
weddings, but among them was no fashion
able event. The churches were relied upon
to keep up the social end ■ of existence,
which they did satisfactorily. Strawberries
were rampant and ice cream was king. ,
GENERAL SOCIAL NOTES.
The annual reception of .the. alumni of
Beiinet seminary on Wednesday evening
was well attended and was productive of a

The sixtieth birthday of Byron Towne,
the proprietor of the Clark house, was cele
brated Thursday evening in a very pleasant

were present, and at 9 o'clock a bounteous
repast was partaken of. The tables were
beautifully decorated, a noticeable feature
being a magnificent cake which came with
' 'congratulations from friends at Evanston. "
The climax of the evening's enjoyment was
reached, however, when J. D. Cottrill, on
behalf of the donors, with a very felicitous
speech, presented to Mr. Towne an elegant
diamond pin. The presentation was a com
plete surprise, and was so cleverly managed
that the recipient was at a loss for words
with which to return the thanks that he so
evidently felt. Among those present upon
the happy occasion were Mr. and Mrs. H.
A. Towne, Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Teel, Mr.
and Mrs. A. T. Morse, Mr. and R. S. Dowe,
Mr. and Mrs. William Eibel, Dr. and Mrs.

Dr. J. D. Wvatt.
The commencement exercises at Judson
Institute on Friday night brought out about
as many pretty girls as one often sees to
gether. There were roses and lilies in
maidenly lips and cheeks that outrivaled the
flowers of the same name, so profusely
disposed about. Those fair graduates
lacked nothing, either, of the grace that
tasteful dress bestows, as the following cos
tumes will show: Miss ' Andrews wore

passmenterie and white lace. Her flow

A High School Commencement and
a. Benefit Concert. ;-.■•■ . . . v'
During the past week several events have
occurred in the city of more than passing
moment. On Thursday evening the benefit
entertainment given to Miss Agnes Greene
was one of more than usual interest. , The
Presbyterian church in which it was hold
was comfortably tilled, and the program
presented was inferior to none that has yet
been given to the citizens. The 'toilets of
the ladies who took part in the exercises
Were very line, and Mr. ,W. C. Master
man, who was master of ceremonies, 'es
corted the ladies most gallantly to the plat
form. This small matter should.; be . at
tended to at all such gatherings. The
Philharmonics were in excellent tune, and
both their vocal and . instrumental parts ■
were given so as to please all. The : duet
by Mrs. R. S. Davis and Mrs. W. D. King
was well received, while the ; solos by Miss
Alma Gillespie and Miss Gertrude V Easton
received - v well-merited applause. Mis.
Baker ' was ' in good voice and ren
dered . the ballad "Strangers Yet."
Miss Dexter, as usual, was happy in her
selection, while the quartet by Mrs. R. S.
Davis, Mrs. W. D. King, Miss Dexter and
Miss Gillespie was also very .; tine. Mr. W.
C. Masterman always has a warm welcome,
and he was in especially good voice on
Thuisday evening Mrs. W. .C. Master
man, Miss Grace Welch and ' Miss Draver
were the accompanists. The instrumental
selections ■•; by ;' the ■ Philharmonics, consist
ing of Miss Grace ; Welch, Mrs. Dr. an j
Waters, Prof. Hayner and Dr. Van Waters j
were well given. , Miss Green hi her rendi- (
tion of "The Second Trial," "The Banquet
Scene" from Macbeth, and the humorous
sketch of "The Man and the Mouse,"
showed that she was equal to take any part
as a reciter. She received and deserved the
applause given. All were more than de
lighted.
GRADUATING EXERCISES.
On Friday evening the graduating exer
cises of the high school were given at the
Presbyterian church, which had a larger
audience than at any previous time, many
having to leave, not being able to get inside.
The graduating class consisted of Patrick
E. Burke, Miss Lulu M. Meeds and Miss
Maude E. Sonle. P. E. Burke delivered
an excellent oration on Hannibal, which
showed research and a choice selection of
language; Miss Meeds'j theme was Paint
and Varnish, and she showed that it was
used in more ways than by the painter,
while Miss Soule's Plea for Zantippe, put a
new phase on fee life of Mrs. Socrates.
The schools, uuder the direction of Miss
Dexter, sang several anthems in good time
and tune, while the glee club showed the
value of training. The recitation by George
Sullivan showed more than ordinary forensic
ability, which will yet place him in the
foremost rank as a debater. Master Charles
McMillan received well-merited applause
in his comic recitation. The diplomas were
presented to the graduates by Mayor Mur
dock, president of the school board, in a
neat speech. Prof. Curtjs also made some
timely remarks. The graduates were
loaded down with bouquets and baskets of
flowers, and also received some handsome
volumes. The meeting was a success.
OTHER EVENTS.
On Thursday evening the Mrennerchor
society gave a rehearsal at the Grand opera
house of the music which they were to pre
sent at the Saengerfest at St. Paul, and
those present received a treat. On Friday
evening the Hibernian society had a pleas
ant social dance at their hall, at which
some forty couples were present. The
same evening Mr. and Mrs. George M.
Brush entertained a large number of friends
at their residence on North Third street,
where a pleasant evening was spent. There
were several other events of minor im
portance, and the week altogether was a
jolly one.

He Knew the Language. "
San Francisco Chronicle.
I knew a man once who got into a bad
pickle by airing his knowledge of Chinese.
It was at a large dinner party and we were
gently drawing this young man's conceit
out. There was a Chinese servant present.
"I speak to the servant always in his
native language. He understands me."
"Does he?"
"Certainly. Confound it, I've forgotten
my handkerchief."
"There's a chance. Tell the boy to fetch
it."
He turned to the servant and let out a
string of peculiar Chinese sounds. The boy
bowed and walked off.
"There, you see, he knows. I have told
him to bring me a handkerchief and put it
on the table." h ;■ i '■%■. ■£■:■':.
The boy returned promptly— put a
pair of boots on the floor beside him.
But this young dude wished to be very
stylish the other evening at a French restau
rant. , v •
"Apportez-moi deux forts cigars."
"I beg your pardon," said the waiter in
perfectly good English; "what do you say?
Two or four cigars?"
"No, no; two strong cigars. Don't you
understand your own language!"
Almost an Invalid.
During a scarcity of ice, a gentleman ap
plied at the factory for a dime's worth, but
was told that ; there was not enough for the
regular customers. He shook his head and
said:
"I hope you will let me have a piece, as
it is for a sick man who is an intimate friend
of mine."
This appeal melted the ice man, and he
handed out a chunk. As he went out of
the door with it, the ice man called out:
"Who is that sick man?"
"Why, it's me." .
"You aint sick."
• "Of course I am not sick now, but I felt
awful bad when you said I couldn't have
any ice."
Contrary to the Regulations. .
"Yesterday you were ten minutes late
at roll call. What explanation have yon
to make," said a New York police captain
to one of his men.
"1 was accompanying a young lady home,
and she lives a long distance from here and
we are engaged," replied the cop.
"That sort of thing will never do. Discip
line must be preserved. Hereafter when
you fall in love, see that it is with some fe
male who lives in the immediate vicinity of
the station house." r : ;r
Too Particular.
: Hostetter McGinnis, who is very partic
ular ■ about his eating, went into an Austin
restaurant and asked for a piece of cheese
for dessert, after he had had his dinner.
The cheese looked rather peculiar, as if the
flies had been taking liberties with it.
"Bring a better piece of cheese than this.
This doesn't look healthy," said Hostetter
to the waiter.
The waiter looked at it a moment, and
then taking it in his fingers so that the good
side was uppermost, remarked:
"Dai's nuffin de matter wid hit now."
A Wonderful Discovery.
Consumptives, and all who suffer from
any affection of the throat and lungs, can
find a certain cure in Dr. King's New Dis
covery for consumption. Thousands of
permanent cures verify the truth of this
statement. No medicine can show such a
record of wonderful cures. Thousands of
once hopeless sufferers now gratefully pro
claim they owe their lives to this new dis
covery. It will cost you nothing to give it
a trial. Free trial bottles at Lambie & Be
thune's and J. P. Allen's stores. Large
size, 31.
