It is one of a flock of new after midnight places opening this fall and it will have, besides the view ,a revolving crcular dance floor and an orchestra seated before a curved mriror. ... ■ The whole night chib business, in his opinion, is in for some revision, i i‘. ■ . Not long ago I said that the Simple places—even the boits with sawdust on the floor— due for a boom, after a long rising curve of magnificence. In the past as soon as one of the informal joints prospered —-which is to say, as soon as it be came “smart’’ and was “taken up’’ by the richest and dullest people in town —nothing would content the owner except a bar done in carved hardwood, a mirror floor on a col lapsible shutter and monogrammed champagne beakers embossed in ogld. There have been roof gardens and roof clubs, but I do not know of any 65 stories high that are conventional night clubs. , . . Mr. Jolly Coburn, who will wave a stick at the music makers there, is an engaging young man who went to the Naval Academy and led at Columbia one of the first collegiate orchestras to make a big name for itself, . . .

THE WORLD WAR DAY-BY-DAY Sept. 18th. 1914—1 t was the anni versary of the partition by Russia, Prussia and Austria. Two women and a man, Catherine 11, Frederick II and Maria Theresa had accomplish ed it without difficulty. But none of the powers had reason to celebrate the occasion. Now they are engaged in a bloody struggle upon its terri tories. Austria was faring worst. Her arm ies had been driven out of Russia Polad in ignominous defeat. They had not been annihilated because an army of nearly a million men cannot be destroyed in so short a time. Russia was faring best. Her arm ies were in possession of Lemberg and were being joyously received. The quality of her eneralship had been underestimated completely by contem ptuous Germans and Austrians. Ter leaders were proving again that a general learns to command by com manding. It had been 44 years since Germany’s officers had been upon a battlefield, and only nine since the Czar’s com manders had learned bitter lessons from the Japanese in Manchuria. One .Russian general had just come out of the Balkan Wars a hero, and his suc cesses stemed from his greater ex perience. This was Radko Dmitrieff. Born in Bulgaria, he studied in two mili tary academies, commanded a regi ment in the Serbo Bulgarian War. and rose in the army until he became reigning prince and had to leave the involved in a conspiracy against the country. Russia’s army welcomed him. and he se*\’t'd it 10 years.

Upon the accession of a new prince, Dmitrieff returned to Bulgaria, rose came the “Napoleon" of the Balkan to chief of the general staff and be war. Disgusted with the political squabbles which followed it, this sol dier of fortune returned to Russia. With a half dozen more like him, the Czar could have looked forward to a longer life. The Czar was using political as well as military strategy. On this date he had issued a proclamation offering self-government to Russian Poland. He promised not only to give Russian Poland home rule, but to add to it the Polish peoples in Austria and Germany. It was a bold and effective move. It produced disaffection among the Poles in Austrian Galicia and German Posen. The results were seen imme diately in the demoralization of the Austrian armies where considerable numbers of Czechoslovak troops de serted to the Russian army. Whole regiments of them changed sides. HISTORY UP-TO-DATE Sept. 18th 96 A. D. —Emperor Domi tan of Rome was assassinated. He had a presentment of violent end, sought to avoid it. All the rooms in which he lived were lined with pol ished stones that he might see all that went on behind and around him.

He is me morable not because of what he wrote about him. And he seems to have detested the man who made him the subject of the classic biography of the English language: James Bos well.

The same place is as often struck again by lightning, especially if it be an open place. A record kept of the number of times the colossal bronze statue of William Penn, at the City Hall, Phil adelphia, is struck is adequate proof of this. There are numerous other conspicuous instances. Also you’re wrong if you believe: That diamonds are the most valu able gems. That tomatoes are vegetables. Tell us your “Wrongs." The best will be published and acknowledged. Address the author in care of this newspaper.
