Burlington Free Prose FOB L&.VD OR WATER. GOOD FORM OF TO-DAY. How It 11 Bern from That of t!ieP:Gt!n Various Imor:aat Respect. In a little book just published, en titled "Good Form," the etiuuetto of some few years ago is amusingly con trasted with that of to-day, when every thing is more succinct and expeditious than it uasd to be. Yhen the ladies' of John Leech's time went to dinner parties they were shown into bed-rooms and allowed some min utes to adjust their ringlets. Now they hand their cloak to a servant and walk straight from their carriage or cab to the presence of their ho3te33. At weJ diugs in "the MOs" each bridesmaid had agroorc3man to look after her and see that sho had what she liked at tn elaborate breakfast of tho matri monial function of tKat day. Now there is only a "best man," though how he comes by the superlative adjective when he is sole groomsman it ia difficult to say. Among other changes of custom is that concerned with the bridesmaid's dresses, which used to be given by tho bride. And our authoress ruignt have added that it was no longer fas hioiiabie, as it then was.for the bride to cry. All weddings nowadays- are dry-eyed. Crying has "gone out." It was tf.e very height of the fashion in the year 1827. When Sir Edward Bui werLyt ton married Miss Kosina Wheeler an eye-witness of tho ceremony describes both bride and bridegroom as beins "overcome with sensibility; pale, lot tering and tearful." No one totters to ! the altar now. It would not be "good form." B;it the bride must not, on the other hand, romp up the aisle in the exultation of her heart The correct pace is, perhaps, best described as re sembling that of a policeman on hia beat. It is slow and stately. Another marked change in soeial customs is mentioned in connection with the etiquette of "small and early" parties. No longer does a hostess ask her guests to sing or play. This ordeal, so dreaded by the girl of a couple of deffades ago, is no longer to be feared. "I hope you have brought some music, Miss Smith," was frequently tho pre; luda to a distracting performancj that gave pleasure to no one, leaat of all to the player. And, strange to say, now that music i3 always professional and generally worth listening to, it i3 diffi cult to persuade people to remain siloat while it is going on; whereas, when amateurs were singing, it would have been considered a shocking piece ol rudeness for any one to have talked till the lady had finished describing how she wore a wreath of roses, or the gou tleman had finished dilating upon his homsless, ragged and tanned condition. At the dinner table it wa considered the duty ol the host and hostess to urge their guest to eat. This cu3tora in our own day is entirely abandoned, partly owing to the now universal style of having all dishes handed round. The board no longer groans as onoa it did, the weight of the viands being transferred to that chapel of ease the sideboard where, in seclusion, a hireling carves the joint and skillfully dissects the bird whose anatomy used to prove such an intricate problem to the bothered amateur at the end of tho table. Skill in carving is not now ona of the polite accomplishments where vr ith it is necessary to equip a youth, for his social career. Till now eti quette books have been only uninten tionally amusing, but the present writer treats her subject with a Btni of humor that make3 it easy rc-adii;j. London Daily News. Russell Sage at His Desk. I had an interview to-day with Kus sell Sage, the penurious old man wIvj does such a thriving business in pufe and calls with friends of a speculates nature, and whose name .is now linked with that of Jay Gould whenever the owners of the Manhattan Railway Company are mentioned. Russell Sage is over seventy years old, but his mind is as keen as ever, and the amount oi business he transacts in a day would put to blush many a lusty, youthful broker. He does not appear to ba a methodical man either. His desk, n C:io table, is covered with papers, let ters, etc At his right hand are two long slips containg the latest quota tions from the Stock Exchange. Every moment a clerk steps in and quitely adds new figures to this list Russell Sage's face looks very Irish. On &j chin and neck is a short stiff bcar-5. His upper lip and cheeks are smooth. ! He wears a tweuty-five cent made-up : neck-tie, and a suit of clothes of which no two garments are of the same pat tern. They fre not of a loud figure but very. plain and common. N. Z. Letter.

Cnrle PetPr went to see a ball game last Saturday It was hi3 first view of such a contest in ten years, and ho looked somewhat disappointed as tlis innings rolled off with machine like promptness, but be said nothing until he was on board a homeward bound car. Then his nephew addressed hi;n: "What do you think of it, uncle?" "That was a baseball game, was it?" "Of course it was. Why do you ask that? . "And they call that playing?" "Certainly." "Nohody punched nobody else from one end to the other?" "No, indeed." "And tho uo.piis wasn't kicked off the' field?" "That is a rare diversion nowadays." "And the whole eighteen men didn't huddle together in a bunch and jaw every time man was called out?" "Oh, no." "Aud nobreiy didn't steal the best bats and make off wi;h the spare ball?" "That is impossible under tho present ar ranpement." "And tho whole thing didn't vrind up in a free fight I". "You saw that it didn't" "I know that I saw it didn't, and I also" know a ga:r;e of real baseball vi-htSn I see it, and that confounded croquet party that ws paid $2 to look at is no more like the real jj.-ir.its tliey used to play than en amateur minstrel show is like genuine fun.
