Trte-a-Tete Drives This ataajisrr fails completely to 1 understand why the custom of «mut! girls driving with men is permitted here. It was quite amusing the way thisj observation came about. She ralmlr . announced that Mr A. was engaged to Miss U. There was a chorus of surprised questions. “Of course I haven't directly heard the announcement." ahe aald. "but there can be no doubt about It; for the other day when I was wheeling with a party of friends, we saw theurj driving together on the Sandbar Ferry road. If that Isn’t equivalent to an announcement. I should like to know: what is." A dozen people hastened at once to explain, bui the thought suggested left a doubt in more than one mind. The system of chaperonage Is of: course sometimes carried to an ex- j trrtne In some cities, but It Is not only the most conservative who think it I is too greatly disregarded here. Chap erones are desirable not because our : girls and even our men cannot be | trusted to carry themselves with the , greatest dignity Bnd propriety, but he-; cause the pubic cannot be trusted j not to grasp at a straw to malign a woman's cha acter. In all other cities of this sitte. North,: East. South and West, even In At- ; lanta. the least conservative of Oeor- j gia cities, It Is considered bad form for a girl to go driving or wheeling accompanied simply by one male fs- , cort not her relative or fiance, and that Is wh--" strangers criticise, or are at least curious when they set; our girls —the most refined and gracefully dignined in the whole world-taking thee little excursions with anyone who happens to Ask them. On Invitations to the German. Our observer is both surprised and amused at the stress laid by our girls upon invitations to the germans. At a luncheon the other day, she said, two girls were perfectly radiant be cause they had just received invita tions to the fust german, when they thought they were to be ignored for this one time.

I always thought ibear things were written up for the papers by the peo ple who gave the parties. I have known ever so many women reporters In a great many etilea. and yon are the first one who ever complained of not having society material enough Only a frv weeks ago 1 was talking to two bright girls on n great dally In a neighboring rily. and they told me their work was almost all editorial." This was a subject on which the newspaper woman was not averse to talking, and she had a great deal to say on the subject that would not be of Interest to th# public at large "Have ;*ou ever gone to the house of a stranger, or even of a mere ac quaintance and asked for facta con cerning parties to which you were not invited or about weddings to which you had had no cards? geked her sympathizer. "Certainly not." "Well, then, assuming that you have been In the habit of writing only of the people In whose circle you move, and concerning whose affairs you have a legitimate right to know something, so to speak, have you ever written i anything of such a persona! nature | that it would Ire indel.catc? in other j words, have you made use of in a pub lie way of Information you would con-, slder you had no right to scatter broadcast as a private Individual?" | “Not consciously. Not at all, so far as I know.” | "Is it simply a whim of the editor or, your paper to publish a society col- j umn. or is there a demand for it? I)o the women who object to figuring In this column object *o readlnr it ? “I am lather under the impression that they are the first to read it. They either do not understand or ignore the law of reciprocity." “Well I know you would be glad enough never again to write another socle-tv-Item. It can’t, be exactly pleas ant to have one friend tell you she was glad you were no longer editing a certain column, as formerly she had been afraid to go down the street with you for fear someone would say she was making an efTort after newspaper notoriety—it is a fact that much of these objections come from the fear of what somebody will say and to have another friend say she did not dare to invite you to her party be cause all the other members of the club she was entertaining would say you were Invited in order that you might write of her skill as a hostess. So, ail things considered, it seems to me it would be a good plan to ask every woman who requests the omis sion of her name to write a note to TTTEJ Jk TTO’CTST-A.

An old farmer gave a city matron some advice thl* summer that might be 1 followed with advantage by every housekeeper. "You better learn to do as I do; I make strength by a-savln' o’ what I’ve got." In packing up the summer clothing, j |t |g well to remember that the old fashioned notion that It Is Injurious to pack away washable materials "done up" Is an exploded one, and that It is not at all necessary to pack away everything rough-dry. Carefully laun dered articles take up less room in ( best or closet, and nothing can ex ceed the comfort of having fresh clean garments to put on. without prepa*a tlon, when the first warm days come and the winter clothing is unbearable. Apropos of this, an authority says that It should be remembered that cambrics or cottons In dress fabrics should always be dried In a dark place, and that the most delicate col ors won. retain their brightness with out fading as long as they were Tsed, if dried quickly In a darkened room. Amelia Rives at Tuxedo. The presence at Tuxedo last week of Prince and Princess Pierre Trou betzkoy has been the occasion for much interesting comment. The ac quaintances of the princess, nee Ame lia Rives, had not seen her for some time, and were Inclined to give cre dence to the reports of her severe ill ness until they saw her at Mrs. Alex ander's on Thursday evening enjoy ing the best of health. It was a pleas ure to the many friends of the South ern novelist to welcome her back lo Tuxedo It is possible that the Prince and Princess Troubetzkoy may pass part of the winter in New York.

The following letter I* received by en Augusta lady from a friend In the east; At breakfast tbo day of the civic t>a- I rade, It was one reiterated interroga tion, "Are you going?” The men i | folks" had seen the naval display; 1 made preparations to go civic day, i which the rain frustrated; had wit-j nessed the glory of military day, and declared with regrets that they must la* "on duty.” .Should me mind It? An unspoken decision was in our | hearts, and when one voiced It, the rest acknowledged they were of like , mind, so the deck was cleared for ac tion, and we three “lone women” were; 1 S oon off. We decided on Market street |for our best point of observation, and I having the car at Second street, wc hurried tip to Fifth, through which j street they were to pass to Chestnut, i What was the good of hunting for a more desirable place and getting left , In the end? It was only a short time j before the line of march would begin, j the people were gathering from near; and far, progress becoming more and more Impeded, so we took our stand at Flu- and Mar et and waited for an opportunity to get seats, which was not long coming. “Here you are, grand stands ten cents," and we were soon the possessors of a peach basket apiece. They were new —no luscious fruit bad ever nestled in them among green leaves, and surely they had nevpr seen Jubilee service. We settled our selves and laid our plans for souvenir scrap baskets, for we all decided to take them home, and visions of artis tic draping with the tri-color held tn place with a jubilee medal of cute lit tle bows, of cunningly devised handles, floated through our brains, while the ~r o wd began to increase, and we could I AMD #M Mmnd* «t# #t %hD iad < •MAMMMMM ] |DD» itt # liw M» DM M Mwi fiiTiWD tipi *# •#» *o*9os Mtttt | I dAdpNI mm M##W #* *MM <DMMMD# j [ DDMpft* #a# pmmM «#t «d#%Mm# da MM I !i> ■ I mm* ttt* nfKMin » mm Mmtm* i I tip MAMaMa #'* #* Mp 4 Md# j [ i*# dad ndamdm# imml ttvp #mdp I \ iiii > t Ail §*D IppP* im (Mndm# *#4 ] 1 aamdm •* da*m*md# m l 0m ittrr* v nff «tt A MMVP MAD M*M#M j >i*ir a> aa»4 aw*«c 4 mm PM ANPDI ’ Md*«M# TV m*mm i <MM MM IMP j ADDpKID r.rrprii «d MnmM- •*! «A «#drA MM j « #ddJ *t d| Mtunttr Mmp** niMi •iMMii «M* IMdAMM# M'iPMal M#l MUM (Ml. **D#tA4DA Dflui fp-VMDDp ItAD# MAP#** ' mm mm ia* »%- AiAiDDPI A# !

He is as yet unable to decide which la the worst-sleeping In a mud-puddle, be ing confined on a troop ship, or shot at. They are all irrltntlng, and when done on an empty stomach, with the object of improving one's mind, they are extravagantly expensive: but as they satisfied a life of longlug to see men do the greatest thing men are called upon to do, he Is content. He Hunks the direct and only cause of all the privation and delay which became so notable In Shafter's operations was duo to the fact that the command wa# sent Into the field without the proper ratio of pack-mules. Before San Juan bill the men wpre on half-rations on account of lack of supplies, aad were out of tobacco, which Is very neces sary to the well-being of a soldier. Towards the end of the fight, when he was going to the rear, the sight, of the road was indescribable. All the broken splints, bloody bodies, hope less, helpless suffering, which drags its weary length to the rear, are so much more appalling than anything else in the world that words do not mean anything to one who has not seen It. Men half-naked, men sitting down on the road-side utterly spent, men hopping on one foot with a rifle for a crutch, men out of their minds from sunstroke, men dead, and men dying. Tne story of the bravery, pa tience and fortitude of our men is ad mirably Illustrated and described In Mr. Remington’s article. There Is nothing more musical than the voice of a mule to another mule.
