Last month it was the bride, this month It Is the debutante, and next month every body Is promised an inning. Even at this . date there Is enough scheduled to make everybody cheerful, and the person who doesn't have to keep a memorandum may be set down either, as having a remarkable memory or as being unpopular. The ac tivity of the young and other married peo ple Is particularly noticeable Just at pres ent, and considering that the young ma- , iron Is an especially privileged person, and that everybody has a duty to the debu tante) one can't help wondering what is to become of the other girls. Of course, nobody expects that Just because people get married they are to resign all claim to faor, but after a season or two of so ' much for the young people, one has rather gotten out of the habit of expecting things ' of tha others even If these "others" do now Include many of those same young people, . Last week was full, indeed, though Mrs. V. H. ColTman's receptions to introduce her daughter, Miss Marie, were probably ' the. most notable affairs. This week there will be another debutante, Miss Hortense Clarke, another the next week, Miss Alice Crelghton McShane, who will be brought out at a. tea given by Mrs. Thomas Mc Shane Saturday afternoon, November 28. In the meantime society will dance, liter ally and figuratively. Monday evening Mr. frank Murphy will give a large dancing party for the Misses Hamilton and their guest; Wednesday evening Mr. and Mrs. Henry W. Tates will give a dancing party at Hillside for Mrs. Herman D. Kountxe; Thursday evening Mr. Clinton H. Orcutt ' will give a large dancing parly for his daughter, Miss June; Friday evening the , St. Croix club will give e dancing party at , the Metropolitan club, large affairs, all of " them. In surveying the masses of flowers and the gifts that welcome the debutante, one cannot but wonder If all the compliment belongs to her; If ber unproven popularity la not based somewhat upon that of ber who presents her. It must be gratifying to the men to watch the evolution of the afternoon af fair now opening up so promiscuously In their favor, from the strictly feminine In stitution of not so many years ago, to Its present liberal, varied and increasing scope. Time was and that within the recollection of the majority, that excepting holiday oc casions, the presence of a man at an after noon affair was almost as unusual as it was disconcerting to half the women present, for since Us Inception this variety of entertainment had been dedicated to tea and gossip and femininity. In fact, the very time Itself has held it so, for at the beginning few men were available before the dinner hour and fewer women were privileged to go abroad to b entertained, without a man escort, hence the adoption of this time of day when His Highness might be courteously dispensed with for even at the beginning there were those In dependent spirits who recognized possibil ities independent of somebody's brother or father or some other man. And the gal lantry that is said to have characterized those men of past generations (for the aft A healthy An Invigorating Food. A delightful Beverage. ernoon affair is nothing new) smiled with kindly tolerance upon this Innovation and called it "hsrmless." But subsequent gene rations of men have come to question the wisdom of fhelr grandslres for more than one reason as they have watched these affairs become in variety and evidently Increasing popularity until, how to curtail It has become the subject of no little seri ous consideration on their part, and they have begun to clamor "Me, too." And Just at this Juncture, when the masculine half of society has come to see Itself In the light of a not wholly Indispenflble quantity. My Lady, Jn all her graclousness has relented a bit, and Is considering In cluding her brother and sweetheart and a few others. ' There are those who say that the out-of-door life of the past few seasons Is re sponsible for this liberality, but, be that as It may, the popular man Is none the less beginning to be asked to "drop In while It Is on" or "before the girls all go home" and he la availing himself of this invitation. For a season or two the dinner for the as slstlng women "and Just a few of the men" has been a papular sequel to many Of the afternoon receptions, "whlle it fre quently happens that a hostess follows an afternoon tea or card party with a re ception or card party that includes the men. This could scarcely be expected to satisfy, for It must be a bit humiliating to feel that the first freshness of the decora tions, the gowns, yes, and the day's gossip, was over with the first affair, and the men cannot help feeling this any more than the women can' help -being tired by the time the evening affair come on. But better times are surely, in prospect for the man and only recently they were Invited to at tend the coming-out reception of one of the debutantes. Of course the majority were unable to get there because of busi ness, but then, there wai some consolation In being asked and It waa a wedge to the much desired. The dear men! May their privileges never grow less. There are few people who do not ap preciate being appreciated by their friends and many who even crave It, but there is one man In society who has evidently found his popularity embarrassing if not incon venient. For the past well since late In the summer he has announced regularly each week that ha was "going away Satur day" and has just as regularly postponed his proposed trip on account of numerous social demands invitations and the like. He lives at the Millard hotel and though he formerly lived In Omaha has been away for several years until comparatively re cently and it Is said that he Is the most In vited person in society, but it is plainly up to lilm to make good that standing an nouncement or be misunderstood. Mrs. Ruth Bryan Leavltt Is easily run ning second to the new Duchess of Rox burghe, who was until last week Miss May Ooelet, in the matter of free advertising. It is not at all likely that the letter sho wrote home from the Osarks to her Omaha friends was intended for publication, but enough of its contents got out to start the story, and whatever was lacking in exact information as to detail was easily supplied by the Imagination of the correspondent who served the yarn for the eastern pa pers. And it now appears that Mrs. Leavitt Is not getting all the advertising for her. self, as the Delta Gamma sorority of Omaha must take its share. Here is an editorial from a recent number of the Kan sas City Star: Mrs Ruth Bryan Lesvltt must have some awfully dear girl friends In the Delta Gamma sorority at Omaha. They are taking pains to let the country know Just how plucky she Is and how poor. "The sweet thing." they say. "She took her wedding trip to the Ox&rks. Living is very reason able there, you know. And she's writing a vel. of course, It's Just lovely of her. If It's successful maybe she can afford a new Easter hat next spring. She's awfully brave, but isn't it too dreadful to be well, not rich?" Now It may be submitted that these re marks have a familiar ring. When it comes to making deprecatory comment of any sort the average man feels himself a hope less bungler In comparison with the young women of his acquaintance. His remarks are always so brutally blunt. Whenever he reflects upon them he is convinced that he Is a lineal descendant of the man of the stone age who used to hammer his words home with a ftfty-pound bit of rock. It Is only the exceptional man who can do his excoriating artistically enough to ad mit of his smiling during the process. He Is more apt to Jab his pocketknlfe Into the desk or to pound on the table. Besides. It rarely occurs to him to make this sort of comment gratuitously. Strong provoca tion is generally required to ,arouse him. In this particular variety of expression a man Is completely outclassed by the average woman, young or old. Khe looks so amiable, so engaging and so inadvert ent that unless a man Is wise from ex- fierlence he la completely off his guard In ler presence. It seems Inconceivable that I there should be anything save sympathetic concern dwelling behind such an anoear- ance of Innocence. El'en when she is In the midst of a Delta Uamma outburst of confidences it is dlfllcult for him to com prehend the full purport of her remarks. They are so naive, so apparently void of any disposition to cast any reflections, and at the same time so frank in their im plications. When Mrs. Leavitt returns to Omaha her "dearest friends" In the Delta Oamma sorority will doubtless he overjoyed to see her and will give a dinner in her honor. All of which will be taken as a matter of course by the sisterhood, but will be quite beyond the comprehension of mere man. Weddings and Engagements. The wedding of Miss Blanche Rollins Craig, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Craig, and Lieutenant Henry Meredith Nelly will take place at 6:30 o'clock Mon day afternoon at AU Balnts church.

RACE SUICIDEAND WAGES What "nV Mother" Has to day la Con meet ton with the Debate Now Pending;. OMAHA, Nov. IS. To the Editor of The Bee: I have been reading Rev. M. P. Dowllng's remarks on "Race Suicide." His remarks in regard to society are all right with one exception. He failed to say that the society woman hud time to care for dogs, even to giving them costly burial. Those animals are put here for some good but not to take the place of children. Both Rev. M. P. Dowllng and President Roosevelt have "race suicide", on the brain. They don't stop for a moment to think of the thousands of children that are objects of charity, hungry and ajjnost naked, nor do they think that a family of children suffer whan deprived of a mother's care. Take Mrs. Booth-Tucker, take from her seven children in a moment. Still another: in The Bee last week I read an account of a father being left With seven children, the eldest 13; not being able to care for them he turned them over to the Roman Catholic sisters, who promised to find homes for them. I need go no further than my own family. Soma years ago six of us were left, the youngest two and a half years old, without a mother. After a few months, most of them were put In the Home for the Friend less In Chicago. Ay hat was the result? We have never been together since, and' we never expect to be. . No matter how great a father's love may be, unless he has large means, he cannot care for his little ones. Then again If the mother Is spared, how many, children have to go to work with very little education, and before they are half grown. Bishop Spauldlng of the Roman church says.. the laboring man is too extravagant In his de mands. Has not the laboring man some pride also? Doesn't he want to see his children clothed and well fed? And when he sees that he Can't do It on his small earnings, and ths high prices be Is obliged to pay for everything, he Is extravagant when he asks or demands more wages. "Race Suicide" should be preached to the rich," not to the poor. The sin Is not in bearing children, but in falling to care for them. When the father is deprived of the means to do so In a land of plenty con trolled by a few, who will some day have to answer many questions? A MOTHER. HYMENEAL - ' Two West Point Maidens Wed. WEST POINT, Neb., Nov. lt-(SpeclaL) On Thursday, at the home of Miss Rosa Smith in Gordon, Neb., Miss Helen May belle Conlin and Mr. Clyde Ransom Beck wlth were united In marriage by Father William McNamara of Chadron, only a few of the most Intimate friends of the parties being present.

(DfflP The latter part of the month of Novem ber Is to be notable In Masonic circles of the city on account of the number of meet ings which will "be held by the higher or ders. The first of these will be held No vember 19, when the annual meeting and ceremonial session of Coeur de Leon con clave. Knights of the Red Cross of Rome and Constantino, will be held. This Is the newest Masonic society to be established In Omaha and its success has been phenom enal. It is very eelect In Its membership. No applications are received but by Invi tatfon. At present there are about twenty Ave members of the conclave and a few more will be received at the coming meet ing.

The grand master of the state will be present on this occasion and women also will lend the grace of their presence to the occasion. The program for the recepon la now being prepared. THe next event will be especially notable In Masonic circles in this city, for It will include not only a ceremonial session of Tangier temple, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, but the presentation of the Jewel of the past Imperial potentate' to Colonel Henry C. Akin, whose term as Imperial potentate expired this year. Because of this unusual phase of the , ceremonial session a large number of the members will be present from all parts of the country, surrounding temples, notably at Des Moines and St. Joseph, probably sending a large proportion of their mem bership. In honor ,of the occasion a large number of travelers have attached them selves to the caravan which is traveling over the desert to that country from whose bourne no traveler returns in the same shape In which he started. The fellows who are preparing for that ceremonial session, at least a large part of them, have Just returned from Minneapolis, where they went Friday morning to attend a ceremonial session of Zurah .temple. The nobles of Zurah temple have'mad8 feasts upon the oasis of Omaha upon several oc casions and the visit of lust week was a return of the compliment. The return was made In good shape and the Minnesota nobles did themselves proud In the enter talnment -of their Nebraska guests. It is rumored that several new kinks were put Into the rope at Minneapolis and aa some of the members of Zurah temple will be In Omaha at the coming session of Tangier temple, the "committee on torture" is mak ing arrangements to excel the exquisite sensations inflicted at Minneapolis.

Present at the meeting at Washington were delegates from Colon, Chile and Japan, the latter country sending Its first representative this year. The work of the council, while of considerable volume, was not of great Interest to the public, as all Is pe&ca in Masonic circles throughout the world at this time. The session also is remarkable for being the first in the history of the rtte In Amer ica to call an extraordinary session one year in advance, but this was done before it adjourned and the next meeting will be held at Bt. Louis in October, the first to be held outside of the city of Waahing ton since that place was selected as head quarters of the rite of the southern Juris diction.
