The Comings and Goings of

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
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

'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
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
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

"How much do you pay for it.
"Well, 1 consider that a private mat
ter between myself and Mr. Gale."

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

_'; Something of a novelty in the gene a. '
run of .. theatrical events will be pp.
sented for the benefit of the patronsiof
Hennepin;. Avenue theater this week in
the engagement of Washington Irving-;
Bishop, the mind reader— he who jerks
the uuuttered thought from the hidden
recesses of * the brain and gives it away
without any of \ the appliances which:
enabled evening paper reporters to
read the mental operations of the Bar
• retts without even seem them, and to
describe the hanging minutely several
hours before it occurred. 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-
"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.

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

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,

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

mitted. She goes to a lonely garrett
'where he is living, to see him; .Fearing

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

"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

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

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.. .■" :.

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

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. ,
