Grows i.rs» Dizzy in Minneapolis as Lent I* The effects of Lent on society in Minne apolis were plainly perceptible last week. A duller period the city lias not known for months— certainly not since the season so brilliantly opened last fall.

Beneath the shadows and within the secresy of a man's own vine and tig tree these little social dissipations do not sound badly, even in Lent, but the public bail and dance, the late supper, the gay masquerade and the giddy church sociable are laid aside until after Easter's benignant smile. Even the .theater is feeling the change wrought by Lent. V In Minneapolis the chance from winter to summer is barely a step. The thaw comes, tiie snow and ice disappear lad the sun leaps out with all llm fervor of summer. With an equal bound the tfeoogntsof the people leap from winter piyeties to summer past i mo.*.
