The bulls on grangers were generally cheered by the movement in (juincy which went up over 1 pur cent, yesterday on the. purchase of only Win shares, whereas the decline of the duy before was brought about by sales of 1,101) shares and a furious raid. The friends of lloading were also in high spirits up town last evening and they expect to see sixty to-day for that stock.

('mi .'Aoo, April 21).—[Special advices received by the Kansas (train and Live Stock company]— WIIKAT —It IB but a few days since the Mark Lane Express intimated that English markets were liable, to collapse because overstocked with breadstuff 's, some 12 ,000,001) or 15,(100,000 bushels more than last year. Htrangoly enough foreigners were then buying more liberally in our markets than at any other time this year. For three weeks their purchases have been very large. Yesterday 's engagements aggregated l.ltlO.Oun bushels, and today they promise to be three-fourths as much. It is said in explanation that while stocks arc already very large there is a big speculative short interest in May and as holders over there refuse ut current prices, the shorts are coming here for grain with which to fill their contracts. If this be true there may be some foundation for the English .lournal's solicitude. There lias been an occasional show of strength to-day. hut the market has been narrow with little*, outside buying. The freezing weather has apparently no influence, as it, is not believed any damage has been done, though it is not what one would wish for to improve the crops. Damage reports arc frequent. Those from California today being rather emphatic. The position is said lobe statistically strong, but. commercially weak. ('OIEN ANO OATH —The si 'iieezc to-day in April corn in New York is an indication of what might happen here next mouth. A 12c advance and "still a rising" is not a pleasant, thing for a short to contemplate. The newspapers state; to-day that the concentrated holdings for May have been sold out and the, deal presumably ubandoued, but this is by no means certain. Doubtless if one is contemplated an effort will be made to keep prices down the the ilrst half of the month so as not to attract too much corn here, but the prospects of a deal are as favorable now as at any other time.

The l?.Tenlnir Journal reports: Kearny County Republicans, L.AKIN , Kan., April 2!).—[Special.] The county delegate convention of the Republicans of Kearny county was held yesterday. A full set of delegates were chosen. The congressional delegates are for Chester A. Long, and the senatorial for Milt Brown. Every thing was very harmonious and the feeling seems to be that there awaits us in Kearny county, the Seventh, the state, the nation, a grand Republican victory in November. Senator Long was with us and made a short talk. Hon. S. R. I 'eters was also present who, when called out, gave to the voters present some sharp, keen points on protection as against free trade which were surely convincing and will not be forgotten by those who heard them. The continue«^.proinise of an abundant crop makeK*uU reference to the calamity howl, rather amusing to say the least and November 2nd will de- velope the fact that with protection and prosperity the vagaries of the calamities tire ignored or forgotten. We are pleased to notice the frequent returns of some good fellow who went back for a season with his wife's people. Yes the disagreeable weather, the deep mud, the bad roads and the cloudy days of Missouri, IUiuois, Indiana and Ohio is driving back to Kansas very many who by comparison have concluded that I lie drawbacks of Kansas are fewer than the disagreeable inconveniences 01 those states. The new crop of alfalfa is now six to eight inches high, and by May 15th to flth the first crop will be cut. Wheat is well advanced, and rye, oats and barley are all looking well. The Western Irrigation company, under the management of C. II. Lcingstreth have out nearly three thousand acres of small grain, and are now breaking ground lor t-i.v hundred acres of broom com.

[Special Correspondence.1 NEW YORK, April 14.—Almost every mail brings a hatch of letters to Ward- McAllister, tho leader of New York"s celebrated Four Hundred, asking for advice on "How to become a society leader." Pretty nearly all of these letters are from ambitious young gentlemen in small towns who are desirous of forming a Four Hundred of their own. Invuriably thoy are of good family, enjoying excellent social privileges, but, not knowing the ropes, they are unable to establish themselves at tho head of the procession. Hence they turn to the great arbiter of American society for counsel, and in such numbers do their missives come that Mr. McAllister, if he attempted to answer them all, would ho compelled to hire a seretary to look after this class of correspondence alone. Since he issued his famous rikase, di viding the original Fonr Hundred into an "inner circle" of 150, an "outer circle" and a "fringe," these communications have been particularly numerous. The incident served to revive general interest in the peculiar hold which the chief of the Four Hundred has on his followers in the giddy whirl, and naturally requests for instruction as to the besl means of climbing tho ladder of social fame have increased. For the benefit of his numerous correspondents, none of whom could otherwise bo instructed at his hands, Mr. McAllister consented re cently to an interview on the subject ol how society and society leaders may best be built up. "It is the easiest thing in the world,' said he, "for a man, young or old, to become a society leader and to build up a distinct society. But it requires a great many uncommon qualities, and unless he possesses these he will be wisei if he leaves the task alone. He must possess push, the faculty of organization and administration, fine powers of diplomacy, perfect tact, a thorough knowledge of men and the capacity to make enemies with equanimity. "Certain people of wealth and influence will be found in every community who are in every way ineligible for admission into good society. These persons are ab?;ilutely certain to visit all their resent"ient on the head of the man who is looked upon as the organizer of the set from which they have been excluded, and naturally they will do all in their power to injure him. Therefore, tho ability to bear the attacks of enemies is particularly essential to a man who wants to assume society leadership. Given this ability, and being in posscH sion of the other qualities I have enumerated, the goal can be reached by following a very simple line of procedure.' "In the first place, the aspirant wants to bo particular in his dress. I don't mean that ho shall be a dude or a dandy but he wants to he always well dressed and cultivate especially a habit of wearing evening attire with case and grace. There is nothing that lends so much tc tho pleasures of society as the dress coat. In America the people are far behind Europe in this matter. There it is real ized that nothing holps so much in throwing off tho cares of business as evening approaches as the changing of one's clothes, the laying off of one's workday uniform as it were. No Englishman who pretends to he at all fash wnable will think of sitting down to dinner unless he is attired in his swallow tail, even when he dines in his own house surrounded only by his family. "Of course this is not to he looked foi here for some time to come yet, especial ly in small communities, but it will be found pleasant as well as polite to change one's coat for dinner at home and put on a fresh shirt. This will lead naturally to the dress coat as an hu- bitnal easy evening attire, and the man who wants to stop out of the social ranks to the front will do well to set a good example to the persons whom he wishes- to lead by wearing a dress coat, on all suitable occasions. The others will follow in much less time than seems possible, and the change in bearing and deportment that will come over the company is certain to be most, marked. "But as a matter of course the wearing of a dress coat and the habit ot dressing for dinner will not in itselt make a society leader. They are only incidents, though very essential. The main thing is to create the best elements of a place into a distinct and, as far us permissible, an exclusive circle. This can be done without tho possession 01 expenditure of wealth by the proper person, by the organization of subscription entertainments—that IB, entertainments where everybody pays his or her share of tho expenses. These entertainments may take u wide range and are to be adapted to the season. In summer they can take the shape of picnics, excursions, outdoor luncheons and dances. "When fall and winter arrive, balls^ dinners and other suitable affairs may be substituted. It is the duty of the person who desires to bo looked up to as a leader to start theso entertainments and see that they arc made permanent. Once the beginning is made they will run along of their own accord, almoat without an effort, and become recognized social institutions of the place. To inaugurate them a list of the most desirable people should bu carefully prepared. In this work it may bo found necessary to exclude a great many poo- plb who have money, but are otherwise vulgar and unlit for intimate social relations with careful ladies and gentlemen, Unless this is dono the attempt to form anything like an harmonious society set will prove a failure. "On the other hand a large number of people who are poorer than their more 'fortunate neighbors will be found do- POWDER Absolutely Pure.

It is here where tho tact and diplomacy and knowledge of human nature will bo called sharply into requisition. The list lwingmado up and revised a number of times, th-j next step is to circulate among the people concerned and secure their active co-operation and support. This is tho easiest matter in the world. Thp' people are only too happy to help along an undertaking of this kind and will eagerly aid a man who has the force and push. to lead them. Subscriptions to the different ovents will come almost without an effort, and each successive ovont will be easier to manage than tho one that has gone before. "After the first affair has come off it may be desirable to weed out the list of eligibles, and this should ho dono relentlessly, though the ill feeling on the part of those set aside may be greator and harder to bear than if they had been left out in tho first place. But that must not deter the man who has set the task of creating a Four Hundred before his eyes, and it' he is only steadfast aud determined and politic, he will soon feel that the wrath of the slighted will glide over him as easily as other petty troubles of life. Additions to the ranks may be made from time to time as circumstances may dictate, but they should only be made with the greatest circumspection—with more circumspection in fact than the formation of the original list, for it will bo found much more difficult to weed out newcomers than it was to weed out tho old. "This point reached, tho man who has been the active spirit in organizing these subscription affairs can rest assured that the battle is won, and unless lie spoils it all by soiuo imprudence or by letting go his hold, his position as tiie recognized society leader of the place is assured. But eternal vigilance is the price of success in the social world as well as elsewhere, and if he wants to retain his leadership he must make up hi- mind to sacrifice a great deal of (inland .to submit to a great, ui.-tny :m:i-._ - ances at the hands of the 'jealous and disappointed. He must, adapt hii": 111 to changes that arc constantly Declaring, and lie wideawake gnu-rally.' And with that I ho great McAllister excused himself to give aiidii-nci-toa number of New York society reporters who were waiting in the drawing room outside, thereby furnishing another good point for would be creators of "select circles," namely, cultivate the society reporter.
