MINNEAPOLIS SOCIAL. Quiet Little Parties and Mu sical Events Make up the Week. The Bonds of Lent Still Hold Society People Well in Check. Spring Styles Beginning: to _ Appear Upon the Avenues ; and Promenades. The Comings and Goings of Minneapolis People and Social Happenings. " Society has not wholly abandoned Itself to gloom during the past week. Perhaps the pleasant weather makes people cheerful in spite ot themselves. The fact is that the total of social events for the week is as great as in mid-win ter, but they are of a different sort. There are no large dinner parties or balls. Church socials and concerts give all diversions a flavor of sanctity, but there are plenty of opportunitiess for amusement at these gatherings, and young people are not likely to neglect them. Several clubs announce socials to occur during .the next few weeks. The personal column shows a large number of our people are going west and south, although it is difficult to con ceive of a place where the weather would be more beautiful than that with which the Flour City has been favored during the past week. A visit to the dry goods stores along _~icollet avenue is a pleasant recreation on a sunny March afternoon. You meet your five hundred dear friends all bent on the same errand— that of looking over spring novelties— their num ber is legion. In one place there is a rack extending the whole width of the store, filled with the latest conceits in umbrellas and parasols. Long handles are the proper fad for the coming season. Handles made entirely of gold or only tipped with the precious metal are becoming so common that other materials are used in the latest designs. A pretty parasol shows an immensely long handle in solid oxydized silver, shaped tike a shepherd's crook, and embossed with a spray of wild flowers. Others have straight, slender handles tipped with a bit of mother o' pearl in some quaint shape. Dame fashion says that the most correct thing, however, is a handle entirely of light wood which has grown or been bent into some fan tistic shape. These have the advantage of lightness, and are more quiet-looking than the metal designs. Black is to be the prevailing color in parasols, unless my lady can afford one to match every suit, then she finds shades of silk in all the latest designs, with conventional designs in a lighter shade running in wide bands about the parasol. It is whispered that the long-handled sun shades are only precursors of the real canes which will come later. In fact, these handles would make dainty walk ing sticks by merely slipping off their silken framework ; and it is quite possi ble that later in the season we will have adjustable handles that may serve either use. * * In handkerchiefs we find large squares of cambric or linen/having the regulation narrow hem stitched edge with fancy borders, snowing bunches ot wild flowers and foliage. The effect is delicate and pretty, reminding one of the old-fashioned India -and organdie muslins, with which our grandmothers delighted to*- adorn themselves. The fresh, dainty colors are a relief from the staring reds, blues and yellows which have been so long used and have driven people, back upon plain white 'kerchiefs as the only resource in order to avoid aloud effect. Ladies who like dainty and becoming lingerie will be delighted at the spring styles of hand kerchiefs. * * > . - * m 'The Mary Anderson collar is a relief for those to whom nature has not given a neck like a crane, and who have con sequently been in a state of positive dis comfort ever since high standing collars came into vogue. The Mary Anderson is a turn-down collar about two inches wide, with flaring edges, and is to be worn with a China silk tie, carelessly knotted sailor fashion, and the ends tucked out of sight. A stiff shirt bosom front comes with these collars, but is in tended to keep them in place; and the sensible girl will not turn back the col lar of her basque, nor wear diamond or Rhine-stone studs with this style of col lar. * * One store has a showcase filled with .ample fans from a new York import ing house. "Fans are now selected to match the complexion rather than the costume," said the clerk. "You see, gauze and crepe are the style for young ladies, and a becoming fan makes a -lovely screen, enhancing the softness of the complexion and the brilliancy of the eyes. Now, here is one suited" for a perfect blonde," she said, holding up a fan of pale pink gauze, sprinkled with silver scales, the sticks and handle being of solid pearl. Another was com posed of teu real, undyed ostrich tips, with a tortoise shell handle. This elegant trifle can be owned: -by any lady for thetriflng outlay of $25. Black lace fans are in great demand on account ot their durability, and they give a pretty finishing touch to the lace dresses which are so popular. Several pretty styles are shown of guipure lace with bits of gauze inserted, decorated | with hand-painted designs and mounted in ebony. The latest novel ty for a gift is of black crepe, having the sticks stud-' ded with silver stars and the ground ap parently sprinkled carelessly with cut steel beads; but, when the fan is shut, ; these beads form the word "souvenir." In colored fans, the sunflower, the oval in shape, with a bunch of the aesthetic flowers on a yellow crepe ground, mounted, in sandalwood, which give forth a delicious perfume as the fan is waved to and fro. Others for full dress occasions are about half the size of an ordinary fan when fully opened, the stitches being cut in such a fashion that the fan when open is somewhat the shape of a harp. These come in gauze of all colors, decorated with hand painted sprays of flowers and finished by a bow of ribbon cr a heavy cord and tassel. * * Milliner stores are beginning to dis play a few shapes and bunches of bright-colored flowers. But an honest dealer frankly stated that these are the remnants of last spring's trade, and the new styles will not be here for a week or two. WEDDINGS. The home of E. G.

"Yes, I have," was the response." "How much do you pay for it. "Well, 1 consider that a private mat ter between myself and Mr. Gale." "And they better keep it private, too," said the chairman of the market committee after the meeting, "for the ordinance says that stands shall -be charged for at the rate of 10 cents per day, or may be sold at auction on the second Saturday, in April, and I am sat isfied that he is charging much more.''

Mr. Bishop is preceded by Gua Thomas, a St. Louis newspaper man, who has been giving some illustrations of nerve develop ment , during .-- the past few days \ that are quite as startling as the feats of Bishop. He rivaled the attorneys in their efforts to have the sentence of" Pete Barrett commuted, so that Bishop could read his mind, and if he had the time, would have gotten out a petition.' He has had the reading clerks at the legislature announcing Bishop's engage ments from their desks, and now he wants every citizen of Minneapolis to stop thinking for a few days, so as to have a good supply of thoughts on hand when Bishop gets here. * * Joe Arthur, the author of "The Still Alarm," was present at the hanging of the Barretts. While waiting for the execution, some one remarked that it was a shame that Minneapolis had not patronized his play there. "That's why lam here," returned Joseph. "1 am getting even with Minneapolis by see ing two of its citizens hung who failed to visit my unrivaled show." ■ *.* Col. Z. Percy Weadon, of the Grand, is to have his new play produced shortly. The . piece is called "High Tide," and is said to reveal the answer to Eddie Foy's conundrum, "Why are the wild waves sad?" * * The theaters, notwithstanding the strong, counter attraction offered by Manager Ege in the engagement of Barrett, the tragedian, drew fairly good houses last week, "Fantasma" espe cially, with its new scenery and fresh stage thunder, pulling the public's leg for good money. GRAND OPERA HOUSE. . Cora Tanner in Robert Buchanan's . new piay, "Fascination," will be seen at the Grand to-morrow night, present-, ing the same play three nights, with" Wednesday matinee. Cora Tanner, than whom there is no more beautiful woman ou the stage, is well and favor ably known here, having been seen here as the heroine in the melodrama "Alone in London."* Her work then created a. most favorable impression with theater- 1 goers, and the announcement of the production is awaited with interest. The play "Fascination" is said to be a comedy _ drama **, of . the first, class,' the story dealing" with the adventures .of . Lady * Madge Slash ton, who follows her recreant lover, into several *. ■ questionable places' and finally wins him by her artful be havior, lv the play Miss Tanner will appear in masculine attire, and, it is said, create a sensation in the scenes in which she carries the disguise. "Fas cination" will be beautifully mounted, the scenery being especially painted for the production, and the play will be given the same accessories and power ful caste that was given it at its ini tial New York production at the Four teenth Street theater. "Jim the Penman," which created such a sensation at the Grand last year, will be presented at the same theater the last three nights of the week. Man ager Palmer announces that this will positively be the last appearance of this play and company in the city. "Jim the Penman" is one play in a thousand. It contains the licht and shades of a de licately-planned society drama, with the absorbing interest of a detective story. It is constructed with the skill of a Sar -.; dou. The plot, which opens as quietly, as one of Howells' stories, grows strong er and stronger, never slacking in in tensity untii - the end is reached.* Audiences become lost in it. and they forget even to applaud. Great prepara tions are being made for the production, and the famous play will be presented at the Grand with an elaborate setting. -. The company is materially the same as last ear, and includes May Brookyn, Joseph Whiting, W. J. Ferguson. Clarence Handyside, Vida Croly and others. The sale of seats will open- Tuesday. \ "nigh Tide," the latest musical and farcical comedy by Frank Percy Wea don, of the Grand opera house, will be presented at the Grand for a limited time, commencing Thursday, April 11. "High Tide" is said to be a breezy and satirical comedy, depicting. life at As bury Park. The company presenting it includes Louis De Long, the well known comic opera comedian, who has collaborated with Mr. Weadon, and who will appear in the role of "Timon Tyde, a gentleman representing a hardware house, doing Chautauqua assemblies;" Arthur Dunn, Kate Davis, Daisy Hall and a clever company of singers and farceurs. " -^ ■- * * *. Steele Mackaye, well known here as the author of "Hazel Kirke," will pre sent his masterpiece, "Paul Kauvar," at the Grand opera for three nights, be ginning Monday, April 1. "Paul* Kauvar" is a. thrilling drama of the* French revolution, and enjoyed a rum of over 100 consecutive nights at the Standard theater, New York. The orig inal New York cast, including Joseph-: Haworlh and Miss ; Carrie Turner, will appear here. Over twocar loads of magnificent scenery - and appointments will be used, and for the famous mob scene by the anarchists over 100 tiained auxiliaries will be seen. The sale of seats opens at the box office Thursday morning. ' " • ' HENNEPIN* AVENUE THEATER. Washington Irving Bishop begins a week's engagement at the Hennepin to morrow evening, in thought reading,; spiritualistic . demonstrations, magic : | slate writing, etc. He is said to.possess wonderful powers in this direction" and promises a change of bill every night. He calls his entertainment a seance, but his spiritual effects are reached without j the aid of machinery or confederates. . PEOPLE'S THEATER. >;K| "The Wages of Sin," the great East ern success, will be presented at the People's theater to-morrow night, and. it will run the .remainder of the week. This beautiful- melodrama was written' \ by Frank Harvey, arid; it was first pro- 1 duced at Fourteenth Street theater,: New York, where it made a big hit and ran for several months. the cast were Eberi'Plyinpton',' Agnes Booth, Gebrsie i Drew and .Charles Overton. The plot I is a strong oue, and very simple. The play is admirably constructed,* with dra matic situations,' arid '.comedy and pathos are delightfully blended. The charac ters-are -splendidly drawn. That of George Brand, the .curate, is said to be the best minister the stage. ■ . The author, has made; him' a' wonderfully strong man." Brand is in love with Ruth Hope, an orphan, with a small fortune.: * Previous to the opening: of the play. Brand's _ cousin, \ Stephen -Morler, j has ruined a young girl named Barbara, who returns" from. London. Stephen wishes to marry Ruth to get her money. •He makes Barbara tell Ruth that Brand -is the man who ruined her, and thus "separates her frOm : Brand. Stephen marries Ruth, and they go to London." Their little means are quickly spent by the dissipated husband, who leaves his ,wife and child to starve. '-. Ruth learns , of her husband's 'duplicity, and also of : a number of crimes that he has com mitted. She goes to a lonely garrett 'where he is living, to see him; .Fearing 7that she will denounce -him,*; Stephen i attempts to murder her. and is '* almost jsuccessful. Then Brand confronts him. , This is the great scene of the play. The .patient man, who has borne everything; "rises in all the magnificent strength of his strong manhood, and," forgetting his cloth, enters into a terrific struggle with .Stephen. '.finally .'overcoming him. Ste phen is afterwards, killed, by a pal of liis, and Ruth and Brand '.■ again come together. The comedy is principally furnished by Juliana "Boggs, a stage struck young lady. "The Wages of Sin' ? will be elaborately mounted aud powerfully cast.* . PENCE OPERRA HOUSE. "Our Railroad Men," a very comical and exciting play .of life on the rail, will run all this week at the Pence. When the comedy was first produced at .the Pence about a year ago. it did an immense < business. Miss Lois Clark, the new leading lady, .will make her first appearauce to-night in the bright and lively role of Sally Flasher, a rail road man's girl, you bet. Frederick Bock will play Paul Turk. ."Potter from Texas" is billed for next week. STAGE-STRUCK MAIDENS. The Venerable Otis- L. Colburn Relates Some Observations. - Stage-struck young women have a few represe ntatives. Some nurse their hope as they go to school (so did Mary Anderson ): others dream their dreams while they do their housework (so did Minnie Maddern); a few are moaning, screeching, sighing, howling, laughing and posing before teachers of elocution (like Margaret Mather). A small num ber. with eyes askance and bated breath slip into the People's or the Pence. Once out of sight of the madding crowd, they assume a somewhat impressive air and make bold to call upon the man ager. It is of these few callers I shall write. ' •* . "■■'-'■ «• » . : * One day in last November a modest knock sounded upon the door of the manager's office of the Pence. The door was opened, and with a stride, somewhat like Poe's raven, walked in a lady, tall, blonde, good-looking, dressed in black. v She had a pleas ant, intelligent, face, a little painted* and a little tell-tale. She said she had a daughter who was handsome. . As a child her daughter was precocious: the child grew into a girl who could mimic and sing; the girl became a maiden who could mimic, sing and flirt, and the maid became a young woman who could .ing. flirt and act. The young woman left her home suddenly, and at the time -.Of her mothers call upon the Pence •jGianager was sailing far out on the sea toward fame and fortune as Yum Yum with a fourth-rate opera company: The mother pleaded that she wished "to have her daughter at home, and the wayward child had promised,'.* come home if anybody could get her into a dramatic situation. The names of mother and daughter were written on a book of wait, and there they have rested, undis iturbed, side by side with the address and a mother's hope. : f.. .■" :. __ Another face, behind which was a soul that yearned to flit about upon the .stage and sweetly bow acknowledg ment to applauding multitudes, conies r Up before my mind's eye. "She hap pened up town, she said, and thought . she would drop in just to leave her name. She probably had been screw ins: her courage to the sticking point for a montii and | had taken a day's va cation for the "drop." There" was a noticeable droop in her attire and her mien. Though she called upon a win ter day. her hat was made of straw. A poor old ribbon nestled about the low crown, and a weak, sad feather tottered on the brim. She said, in answer to a question, that she could play leading parts! She hoped for a chance some day when the leading lady was ill 01 in some other way disabled. As the poor woman wrote her name and address upon the cruel book I looked into her sad face. There were traces of old years of longing and some suggestions of smothered fire. It had been" a pretty face one . day ! She showed me her ad dress—No. — Twenty-ninth avenue northeast— and said: "I live there alone with my children. My husband is dead." * * Two pretty girls came in with the spring sunshine aud presented them selves gaily at a theater ticket office window. They sweetly announced, with snapping eyes and a giggle or two, that they wanted to see the man who " tended to hiring actors and actresses." The two lively faces were soon in the manager's . office, and under.the mana gerial eye. The girls wriggled about, interrupted each other and the good natured manager with "O's," "Yes's," "Of course's," "But we's," and finally plunged into a general discussion of the merits of a rival theater. After a while, they all at once smiled lavishly upon the manager, and announced the object of. their visit. They said they knew they were very, very, giddy girls, and that was the reason they had come, They were so giddy they. didn't know what to do with themselves, and thought they might "go on". (the stage) and work up— beginning as "supes." The manager commended their super cilious, treatment of false pride, and placed their name in the, mysterious book. As I wandered down Nicollet a ! few days ago, 1 saw the two "giddy* girls" looking intently at some red "Crystal Slipper" lithographs. , ■- .Otis Co nx.
