But Society in the City Is
Inclined to Be Rather
_he Lakes Are Long- on So
ciety, but the Cities Are
People Who Come and Go in
the Month Known as the
Society Events as they Loom
Up During- the Heated
She told him that men were false,
That love was a dreadful bore.
As they danced to the Nanon waltz
On the slippery ball-room floor.
He said that her woman's face.
The crown of her shilling hair,
Her subtle feminine grace.
Were haunting him everywhere.
He told her his orders had come
To march with the dawn of day*.
A soldier must " follow the drum "—
No choice but to mount and away.
A sudden tremor of fear
Her rallying laughter smote,
As he gave a souvenir
A button from off his coat.
He went to the distant war.
And fought as men should do;
But she forgot him afar
In the passion for something new.',
His trinket amongst the rest.
She wore at her dainty throat-
But a bullet had pierced his breast
Where the button was off his coat.
—Loudon Figaro.
Society in St. Paul, last week, was re
duced to the small events that know no
time or season, and. like the brook, go
bn forever. Of what goes to make up a
brilliant and glittering society report,
there was absolutely nothing. All the
glitter and brilliancy have been trans
ferred, or are now transferring to the
Bummer resorts in this vicinity, and
those social flowers which are content
to shed their fragrance at home, do it in
a quiet way that leaves the world no
wiser. In some communities, when the
June sun sends its rays down in the
Shortest way, there are families who
close up the fronts of their mansions
and simulate the summer trip they do
not really enjoy: but St. Paul is above
such duplicity. If her social votaries do
not go to the lakes and pretend to en
goy the discomforts of a cottage life, it
Is because they prefer the luxuries of
their own homes, and enjoy the beauti
ful, voluptuous evenings in a style the
lakes never dream of.
But society proper has gone summer
resorting. Society, that prides itself as
such, whether with or without the nec
essary foundation of blood and money,
carriages and crests, must obey the ir
revocable law and go out summering;
and so it has. Therefore society events
were rather dull and few, and far be
tween last week. Picnics and excur
sions without number are on every day,
and marriages, like taxes, are . sure to
come, but none of these events are of
■ the character to be called "swell," or to
enthuse the Jenkins into the use of
polysyllabled adjectives.
One of the nicest places to spend the
fourth of July will be at Lookout
Place, corner of York and Westminis
ter streets. The people of St. Patrick's
church have beautified the grounds, and
are still making large preparations lor
a mammoth picnic. Besides the ordin
ary attractions of a good picnic there
will be introduced many new and inter
esting features. Various games and
sports will be repeated at short inter
vals. Good music and splendid accom
modations in a cool and shady grove.
An appropriate oration will be deliv
ered at 3 o'clock in the afternoon by
James R. Corrigan, of Minneapolis, the
ex-presidont of the Catholic Total Ab
stinence Union of Minnesota. A large
attendance is expected, and a pleasant
and enjoyable day is anticipated. —

Chief Justice Fuller's House Rent.

The rumor which has been current
for some weeks that Cnief Justice Ful
ler had purchased the old-fashioned
1 I house and beautiful garden at the
' junction of M street, Vermont avenue

i siderable comment on the insufficient
• salary of the chief justice of the Un
ited States. The purchase price named -.
1 ' is .5100,000, but this is pure guesswork,
'i but the figures lead one to consider now.
y far the chief justice's salary goes in

22.— Dear Nina:
I have been study
ing waists and*
skirts this week, not
together, | but sepa
rately. You remem
ber there was a time
when -the- basque
must match the
skirt in not only
color but material,
but nowadays the most fashionable
frocks— l always ; say, frocks now, be
cause it's fashionable, you know— are
often made with a waist of entirely dif
ferent material and color. V. -> . -„.y: li
It's rather a comical fashion, because
then, you know, Ninette dear, that you
can play variations . on a , half-dozen
costumes and make them seem like a
score. ' : yyy ".': ,: *./: s .-.:V"y'.'^-y ■:'--.': -y.\
i -Those little - silken waists, belted/
shirred, , smocked -i or ; tucked, \ are .. '■ so
pretty and convenient, and -for ~; the
morning you can wear them with a mus
lin, lawn or cloth .skirt. I have a crim
son one of surah that I wear with my
best black silk skirt in the street.
You see, the outside jacket covers up
the waist, and then < I save the corded
silk basqe, which cuts so easily. Then
I had a ball waist of tan color velvet
and one of * white- undressed kid, . and
madame says I can wear them with al
most any ball-dress skirt. § Louise has
had three new waists made to go with
a skirt ot black-dotted net. One is high
necked add has long : sleeves, and is of
net,- trimmed with ribbon, and 'that is
for the street. ..
Then for dinners, or small dances,she
has the prettiest decollete waist of black
chantilly lace, made with ruffles over
each shoulder, and when she wears it
with her hair done up in the empire
twist and fastened with her great grand
mother's comb, she . looks just like an
old-fashioned picture. B She has studied
a far-away look, and then soe folds her
little i hands and i crosses her No. 2 Ox
ford ties of patent leather,and of course
every one admires her. -
V The third waist is of black velvet, .
edged with jet, with long jet i fringes
jingling all about it, and it gives an en
tirely different look to the skirt. I
think it is a very economical plan my
self, and mean to have two waists for
all ot my best gowns..
Ton should see the new tennis suits
that Dottle brought over from London.
She says they are all the fashion there
this summer. The blouse is a regular
•man's shirt with a standing collar.
Dottie has four, one a blue hair-line
cambric, one all white pique, one polka
dotted in pink and one in large yellow
plaid. They belt at the waist, and are
worn with a silk tie, and a silk or
, woolen blazer, and a skirt to match the
blazer. :Of course they look awfully
: : I saw Dottie in her blue over the top
iof a garden chair the other day, and I
asked her mother who was that ; pretty

at the throat and was embroidered with
little buttercups on the collar and cuffs.
Then on the front of . her skirt was a
cluster of pink clovers and i buttercups,
hidden behind a spider's web, awfully
cute and odd,- and her' little Tam-o'-

deep purple velvet about the edge and a

Turkish Drawers.
Clara Belle's New York Letter. , ■
j | Speaking of sleeves, a fair friend \of
mine had a gift of a pair of filmy, deli
: cate, genuine Turkish drawers ' from " a
relative connected - with the -" United
States consular office at Constantinople.
You don't see the connection between
drawers and sleeves? No more should
you. Nor did my friend until ;: she be
gan to debate what to do with, the Ori- ;

Should she put them on for pantalettes?
Nobody save herself would be the wiser,
for American skirts are not abbreviated

Tolstoi's Devoted Wife.
Pittsburg Dispatch. . ..:' .y.yyyVyy'
Nearly thirty years ago, before he de
veloped his i philosophy of life, Count
Tolstoi, the Russian novelist, married
the ; daughter of a Moscow physician.
During all these years she has shown
herself to be a woman of unusual pow
ers. She directs, controls, manages
everything at the household at Moscow
and at Yasnaia Poliana. She assumes
the whole '• responsibility of caring < for
the family, which - numbers thirteen
children, superintends their education
and teaches them English and music.
Her business ability is also shown by .
the fact that she has sole charge of the
sale, circulation and distribution of her
husband's books. Nor is she wanting
in sympathy for the count's intellectual
labors. She is both amanuensis, reviser
and translator. Tolstoi's writing .- is
illegible to most readers, and his wife re
writies his manuscripts again and again
until they suit his fastidious taste, In
this way she copied "War and Peace,"
from end to end, six times, and his last
: work, "Life," she rewrote sixteen times,
besides translating into French.
