The Leap Year Ball. -
Leap . Year comes once in four years,
and it Is well it does, in • a certain
sense st least. The “lords of crea
tion” are a-vain set, and having ev
erything. their own wily, they Boon
imagine that they alone can bring to
perfection any social nr other scheme,
but when Leap Year. rolls around, and
the ladies take the lead, this ideals
usually banished, and the aforesaid
“lords!’ made to understand that they
are not so imj»rtant aa they think.
Last night’s Masquerade Ball was a
well administered lesson of this kind..
The ladies managed it entirely from
inception to dose, and it surely de
serves a position near If not at the
top of the list of. social events for the
last year or two, and the lady * com
mittees have reason to fool that their
efforts, were c owned with success.
The program consisted of ten
pieces, a supper and the german, and
at nine the music began, the first
dance was called, and the merry
maskers “chose their partners,” the
ladies, of course, exercising the priv
ileges given them by the occasion;
The number in .mask waS quite
large, and the costumes very good,
the majority being pretty rather than
grotesque, as seems usually the pre'
vailing style. Many of the gentle
men were also in costume. The even
ing was quite warm, and in conse
quence the masks were removed at
ah eftrly hour, when followed tie us
ual number of surprises and revela
At midnight the supper, bountiful
in. quantity and excellent in varicjty,
waagerved, and th
verm their polite
attentions to the dethroned “lords”
flitting hither and thither (hat none
might be omitted or want for atten
tion. Mrs. M. F. King, Mrs. Me
Cullough, Mrs. Wayne. Mrs. Drury
and Mrs. J. E. duBignon, constitu
ted the committee in charge, and un
der their management this interest
ing feature was a complete success.
At the conclusion of the feast the
german was called, at least forty
couples participatiag, and in' tho
sometimes beautiful, and sometimes
amusing figures of that popular
dance ample pleasure was found un
til a late hour.
Mrs. A. C. Banks, and Misses An-'
nie H : ne, Ida Moore and H. E. Gad
dis officiated as floor managers, with
Mr. H. T. Dunn as honored assistant.
The officois of the Leap Year Asso

The Eastern Question.
Prof. Tripp, of Boston, whose sub
scription course of lectures is ex
pected to begin in Brunswick' in the
course of a week, visited Europe as
early as 1835, and there saw a num
ber of the celebrities of the Old
World, .including Queen Victoria a
year before she ascended the throne
of England, and her uncle, the late
King Leopold 1st, of Belginm. Prof.
Tripp was afterwards a student in
France for a year and attended the
public lectures in Paris. In 1847 he
went to Europe to exam
ine the educational instititutions of
the continent, an was an eye witness
ofthe great Paris Revolution of Feb
ruary, 1848. He has since made sev
eral trips to Europe including a long
period spent* as Minister at Brus
His present series of lectures have
been delive.ed befoie the higher in
stitutions of learning and brilliant
audiences in the principal cities in
25 States, and have received the em
phatic indoi sement of the now dis
tinguished and cultured minds of the
country, including thoso of our own
Gen. Gordon, our Governor, we
learn, with his family attended a
course in Georgetown, D. C. in 1874,
while he was a U. S. ’Senator.
One of the lectures of Prof. Tripp’s
course here will be a thorough eluci
dhtion of the much vexed Eastern
question, past and present, including
the latest deuolopments in Bulgaria,
threatening the peace of Europe, il
lustrated by large colored maps,
painted expressly for this series.
