IIKHPSTEAK IIF.HIXD IIAIIS. FentlvltlCH Amid Grewnome Surronnd- liitfH Ineiv York. Think of a dinner party In a dungeon the menu served with such accompaniments as clanking chains on ponderous doors , great Iron barred windows , and swarthy , low brewed attendants In prison garb stalking In and out with the steaming viands ! It makes you shudder , doesn't It ? Yet Just such dinners as these , reports the New York Herald , promise to be quite the jolllcst of the winter season , If the few In which so ciety has already Indulged may be ac cepted as criteria. "The Jolly Dungeon"-Jfor such the scene of these grewsome festivities Is designated has been known In New York for only a few weeks. It Is quite the novelty of the hour. For welrdneas It equals anything In the Old World. Just now It affords a lot of fun to the man who enjoys springing surprises on his friends. He asks a score or moro to dine with him at the Waldorf , mayhap , and when they come he bundles them , one and all , Into a rickety stage coach and whisks them away to the dungeon. Arrived at Twenty-fourth street , on the sunset side of Fifth avenue , they are led through a long , dingy passageway toward a flickering light , which Is seen on coming nearer to bo set back In a recess , half hidden by cobwebs. The air Is musty. The dull , half-deadened echo of footfalls makes the Ilesh creep. The men wonder what Is to come next , and their feminine companions are nearly fright ened out of their wits. Then the host fetches forth a monstrous key and coolly flts It Into a padlock the llko of which was ne'er seen before , when clang ! the great Iron door Making a Record Ono more week and a now year is ushered in , but we cast off the old one with a record far in the lead of all other similar stores in the Missouri valley. Our record has been one to please our customers , to sell them the best goods to be had from the looms and to sell them I at the lowest margin of prices prevailing in any part of the country. ' We will close up the last week of the year's business by giving all customers the benefit of our low prices , which have created consternation among would-be rivals. Our line of Carpets , Rugs , Lace Curtains , Portieres , Window Shades , Etc. Are all new and you will not find a finer , larger or better stock to select from in any of the stores of larger cities than right here at our store. Treynor & Gorham Odd Fellows' Temple - - Council Bluffs. It Is not prldo that prompts us to put our name at the top Instead of at the bottom ot our announcement , but we believe that place should be reserved for prices. Ours Is a store for gentfemen all year , except Christmas time , when wo prepare for the lady trade.

Wo are showing a hundred different patterns In men's fancy colored shirts an elegant , Inexpensive present. Our store Is full ot Xmas Ideas. All at bottom prices. swings back and ho solemnly bows his guests In. There Is more rattling of chains and the monstrous key has locked the door behind them. A series of "Oh'sl" from the women. Intermingle with "Great Scotts ! " from the men. Each ono wonders what next. They would bo In total darkness except for two straight shoots of light from bull's-eyes opposite and a faint green gleam through a crevice In one corner. At the furtherest end grcait Iron bars loom dimly , and tn the red light from beyond arc gllmp&es of dusky figures la con vict stripes walking to and fro. Low , weird music , as of muffled voices , sepulchral In their dlrge-llko chant , seems to come rrom under ground. A moment for all this. Then an electric switch is 'touched ' and the place Is flooded with light. Such a commotion ! In one breath the women declare they are fright ened to death and in the next that It Is "perfectly jolly. " "But what on earth Is it ? " they ask. "A real , true dungeon ? My , but those bars make mo shudder ! " "We can't have dinner In such a place , " says another. "Why , there are no tables and chairs ! " "What Is that wire thing over there 'In ' the corner ? " a third one wants to know. Some man explains that It Is a rat-trap , and everybody shrieks accordingly ana from that moment Bedlam reigns. Opera wraps and top coats are gotten rid of and every one enters into the spirit of the oc casion. It's a jolly lark , and they like It .mmensely. Butcher's aprons are passed around and there Is a lot of fun In helping one another got Into them. Then the beefsteaks came on and the col ored attendants In convict garb wbtsk to and fro. First they bring In a tray of cocktails of 'the ' old-fashioned kind. The beefsteaks are then served on thin , square pieces of 3read and are taken directly In the fingers , ' lor there are neither plates nor forks to be lad. lad."This Is shocking ! " the feminine novices n bohemlanlsm declare , "but It Is also de- Iclous. " And they ere served again and again. The guests are seated on benches built nto the wall. A rickety wooden box stands , n front of each , nnd on It a stone mug and a clay dish filled with salt. In the center of the room an old soap box supports the hugo clay celery bowl , and "all hands help themselves. " The kitchen Is separated from the revel lers by a formidable looking door of iron tars the same through which the red light had gleamed upon tholr entrance. Tempting whiffs and sputters from English chops and the beefsteaks cavort through tae opening. The cook peers out every now and then Sometimes he ls greeted with cheers and shouts of "Long live Bennle , king of the dungeon ! " He Is short and rotund , with a face as red as a Christmas apple. Ale flown Ike water from a cask embedded tn the wall and a great part of the fun lies In tbo drawIng - Ing of It. "A toast to the Jolly dungeon ! " a pretty woman laughs , and It Is drunk with heart/ good will. "A toast to our fair companions ! " some masculine voice proposes , and It Is given again and again. There Is a piano over In one corner , and some one plays a rollicking tune , the boxes are eet aside and dancing Is begun. Never were gleaming shoulders sot off by weirder backgrounds the dull gray stone of the walls , roughly hewn and scattered over with rusted flintlocks , old carbines and groweome Instruments ot murder and war ; a pair of handcuffs that have bruised wrists 'or half a century , favc shackles from African horrors , queer blunderbusses of Revolutionary days. Along the rafters rafters overhead are beer mugs of everj make and mold. Between the dances there are songs and choruses. The banjo and guitar are taken 'rora the colored attendants , who have wanned out their racial melodies during the early evening , and the dungeon echoes with the merrymaking. It Is late , quite late when the rickety stage coach finally rolls away and the gretit Iron door clangs on the deserted dungeon , and New York society folk feel well osiurcd that they have been thoroughly Bohemian ana have had no etid of a good time as well.
