GOTHAM'S GE1AT SEASON t • Big Dinners and Balls That Will Be Given This "Winter Khe Astor Grand Ball and YTliat It Wil . Cost—A Craze Over Pluk Takes I'pper' i Tendom by Storm—AVhat It Contrt to JXf.ti'odnee a Blushing Debutante. [COPYRIGHT, l£0l.] LTHOUGH New York h a s n ventured o n a New Year's bal this j'car, being \varned by th< result of t h —Unique a ff a i r engineered b M r. McAllistei a twelvemonth ago, it has en tered on a sea son of gayeties which promises to eclipse all its forerunners i n splendor and extravagance. Every one of the great balls announced for 1891 will involve a greater outlay than those of a .year ago. Teas, wh^i were so popular for the last two or Sree seasons, have »ow become a rarity. ^ They were instituted during the worrisome days of 187S, as a measure of economy- by •which, without spending- much, my lady could receive a few of her friends and entertain them for very little money. Those teas cost an average of about one hundred and fifty dollars apiece. There were usually two or three •waiters, some light dishes and tea or chocolate; a great deal of twaddle and make-believe enjoyment, some very flue dresses and, in short, a capital show at the smallest possible money. But times I HAPPY DEBUTAXTK AND A FATHEK- PROUB Iliave'changed all that. The last two or three months of 1890 were exceptional- ;ly "brilliant in a social way and now, at ,the beginning of the new year, there are more grand balls arranged than at anytime since the colonial dames of !old New York learned to dance. .' I talked yesterday with an authority .on social matters—one who has even [better opportunities for • feeling the ' 'tpnlse of Upper Tendbm than Ward AUister himself. j "The secret of the-matter," said he, \"'\s that our best people are richer than ibefore. ! "The first of the great balls will be ;that of Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt on 'January 19. January is always prolific 'of big social events, but this and the i Astor ball to follow, on the 20th, will ; overshadow every tiling else. ' Mrs. ; Cornelius Vanderbilt's ball-room is one of the finest of its kind in this country, .and her entertainment will cost some- iwhere in the neighborhood of 510,000. Mrs. Astor still holds the scepter ; as the queen of New York society, and it •can not be wrested from her until she lays 'it down of her own accord. The rivalry jhas been very strong at times, but Mrs. iAstor's commanding wealth, her splendid house -with its unequalled ball- iroem and rare, .picture gallery, added mcim aione win cost not less than S3,000 or $4,000, being set for GOO or 700 persons; the flowers will be as much more; there will he two bands of .music, and these, with the wines a,nd decorations, altogether will easily reach S.10,000, or possibly §12,000. The Vanderbilt balls will be very little, if any, less. Then there are those of the Beekmans, lloosevelts, Webbs, Livingstons, Sands, and some hundred or more other families, all of whom give fine entertainments in the season. They will run all the way, from 510,000 down to a modest S3,000 or 84,000. These, of course, are only the dances. I have said nothing of the thousand and one dinners and luncheons, and the receptions where a collation is spread, or of the 'small dances,' whose name is legion." "Are there no large balls conducted on a more economical scale in New York?" "Oh, yes: the Patriarchs and the others which Mr. McAllister has in charge are conducted with a view to economy. Some of these ara pretty cheap; they probably average from $3,000 to S4,000 given abroad. Our women dress b'ettfer and are quite as handsome, if riot indeed handsomer than those of either Paris or London. A friend of mine who was at nearly all .the great events during the lust London season tells me that he found nothing to equal the private balls given here- in New York, which arc really the finest in the world." n.

As every one knows, an invitation to one of her balls or dinners is the means of opening all other doors in society to the recipient. To secure such,an in• vitation is the dearest wish of hundreds of good families in New York. For a might under the great lights in that splendid room, they would surrender almost any thing." "Did ever any one compute the cost of a single season's festivities, in New York?" I asked. "Well, it would run well up in the millions. Take an.event like that of Mrs. Astor's ball, for instance. The each, Jir. amount' of three or four balls out of it during- the season; that's his arrangement, you mow. Private persons couldn't do it at the same cost;: they would be much nore extravagant." "The rage this season is to be pink," said Caterer Pinard recently. "It has ately become quite a fad in society, rou know, to give pretty appellations to a certain class of entertamments. Well, ve are to have a delug-e of pink dinners, teas, luncheons and balls. 3rig;ht pink will always be a favorite, I ruppose, because of its effectiveness, rat this year the town seems to have j-one crazy over it. For a pink dinner, ike many that will be given during the next three months, the entire menu is to >e kept of that shade as far as possible. 5eginning with the oysters, the little emon biscuits are held together by a hread of pink ribbon, the bisque of obster soup is pink; celery being neces- ary to give it that tint; the fish is served with a pink sauce and decora- ions, and even the entrees are brought, n in pink satin cases. Then, of ourse, the sorbet or Roman punch is n glasses of the prevailing shade, the ce having the same hue. Little cakes, A Sorimin About a Stolen Spoon That Wa» N^vef Talked of Afterward*. '-'I remember," said the raconteur of the party, "a dispensation of what^may be called Spartan justice. It happened when I was a boy and made a lusting- impression, as incidents of the kind do on the youthful mind. "Our folks had some old silver spoons that had been in constant service for generations, and were small and thin, and carried in their shallow bowls the marks of many teeth. Each .spoon had a history, as spoons did have in those days, and they were looked after with the greatest care. Sly mother placed them tinder her pillow every night, and the whole family would be regularly awakened by a midnight clatter of rattling 1 spoons, as they had a restless habit of falling out of bed, so their value was. enhanced by the many sleepless nights they cost. "Well, one of those precious spoons was missing.' and there was a gi'eat to- do over it. The servants were all questioned, but no one had seen the missing 1 spoon. That night a colored girl, who had been taken in some months before by my mother, and who was a bright, and rather precocious character, told of seeing a 1 ne w hired man on the premises hiding- something in his jacket. She essayed to find the jacket, and, sure enough, between the lining and the outside was found the lost spoon. "My mother was so happy in recovering her lost property that she wanted- the man to go scot free. Not so my father, who was a solemn churchgoer. 'I will give him a lecture on the sin of stealing,' he said, 'and keep him, as he is a useful man. I am very sure he will never steal from us again.' "I accompanied 1 my father to the kitchen, where the man was .raking ashes over the coals of a hot fire and preparing to go to bed. He sat submissively still as my father appeared cany- ing a large Bible, and he listened to the lecture that was delivered with an unmoved countenance. I slept and awakened several tunes before it wa.s finished, lly father's .<jf>lemn,' monotonous voice affected me like a soporific, and £ did not try to fethom the language he used. "The culprit was a German, and I have since learned that he did not understand one word my father said to him—not even the nature of the accusation against him. I thought then, as I listened to .my father's bass tones in that grim monologue, that the punishment was adequate to the sin. I had been lectured myself, and I would have' confessed to almost any thing to have escaped the consequences. "The lecture was supplemented by a prayer, in which my father implored divine forgiveness for the offender. The German took it all in good part, and remained in his situation, but was no doubt carefully watched. Some years ago the colored girl acknowledged that she had put the spoon in his jacket in order to get rid of him and gratify her love of mischief. As he never alluded to it in any way, we could not tell what he thought of the services on that night, or how much of the moral lecture had been comprehended. But I am certain he never understood the criminal characteristics of the occasion.''—Detroit Free Press. A Lovable Jinn WUo MiiiIc His Mark in the World l>f His Integrity mid Homwt,v •-The Ciinnc of Ills Death. Better known than his face wus th signature of General Francis K. Spinner. His physiognomy was that of a German from Stiabia, which in all probability was his ancestry, for his father, John Peter, was born flf linden t/rn years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. General Spinner was born in the Mohawk valley, in a Dutch settlement called "German Flats," in 1802. John Peter Spinner had been a PLOrnan Catholic priest for twelve years in Baden when he embraced Protestantism, married, and came to the United States preaching 1 i& his native language and in English until he died. General Spinner was educated entirely by his father, who in- 'sisted that he should learn a trade and apprenticed -him to a confectioner in Albany, and when he was dissatisfied with that trade bound him out to a, saddler in Amsterdam. Young Spinner took a fancy for the militia, and by the time he was thirty-two, had reached the grade of Major-General. In 1835 he was elected sheriff of Ilerkimer County. In 1888-9 he was commissioned to. build the lunatic asylum at Utica. He became cashier of a bank in Mohawk, and there made his home for the rest of his life. He was for some time employed in the custom-house in Sfew York City, and in 1854 was elected to Congress as an antislavery Democrat.

In 1830 he became a Republican. He was twice re-elected to Congress, and when the Lincoln administration came in; Secretary Chase- made him Treasurer of the United States, a position that he filled for over fourteen years. It was due to General Spinner's advice that women were first employed in the departments at Washington, many of the men clerks joining- the army and creating hundreds of vacancies daily. His queer signature was purely an affectation. He never wrote his name in the way it appears on greenbacks issued so voluminously during the war, untfl he became Treasurer. He then cultivated this queer BY A LITTLE GIRL. A HUNTING DIXXER L'AXGLAISE. bonbons, candies and fruit are all done np in pink and even the decorations of the room are of that warm tint; your ice cream is served in a pink satin box and all the china and glassware are pink. Guests at such affairs will wear La France roses, the bouquets are tied- with pink satin ribbons and the hostess is characteristically robed hi a pink gown. Should the affair be a pink luncheon, all the ladies are expected to appear in gowns of that color. It is often asked what it costs to bring out a debutante in society. Now, this is the most costly of all social functions, if it is desired to have it done in good taste. Of course, thfere are many nice families who bring out their daughters in a modest way at very'little cost, lit tie more probably than the expense of a £ea or luncheon would amount to; but it is different with most people in the best circles. A rich family will not hesitate to spend 515,000 or even $20,000 on the • occasion of their daughter's "coming out." New furnishings for the house and th.e finest decorations will enter, largely into .the cost of such a ball Where the girl is an only child, and the parents are any thing short of nobodies, papa won't grudge a substantial check for such an occasion. "There isnocity in the world," said Mr. Pinard, warmly, "where the private entertainments exceed those in New York in cost and magnificence. Everybody who has traveled knows this. Americans are noted for having things done in the best style, and this is particularly the case in social affairs. Not only in the generous expenditure of their money, but in the assemblages of beautiful women, graceful in carriage and gowned in a way that no European women has yet learned to approach, are our entertainments superior to those She Gives Her Childish J<1e;tx ibout Boys. My answer to a boy: You say girls are a nuisance in a family, will tell you a few facts. You say that a girl will eat all the candy that is brought into the house, but I never saw a boy when there was candy in the house but what had his mouth full all the time. Boys are always throwing their things around the house.-and then storming around the house, turn ng 1 things topsy- turvy because they can't find them. When you want a small boy to help entertain company he acts foolish by lying down on the floor and kicking. That is, a small boy. As for being out nights, they are out and stay out as long as they please. They have their latchkey, and c'ome and go as they please. If their father and mother go to bed early, he .tells them in the morning that"he was in before ten, so they let it pass. It goes on, and he is ruined by having a Ttey. If a girl goes to a party she is told that her father will be after her at ten o'clock. A boy goes, stays as long as he pleases, and goes home with a girl if he likes. If a boy sees his sister walking with a. ooy, he will go home and tell his mother and father that he saw her walking with such a one, and then she will get a lecture from her mother. A boy is forever -bragging about what he -can do. In vacation he has a fine time.' A girl has to help take care of the baby or practice music or singing. II a boy is sent to a store on an errand he mec* a boy; he puts down his can beside the fence and on he goes, fishing, or playing ball, or something, forgets his can, and mother is waiting- for the oil, but she waits in vaiu.

There are lots more disagreeable things about boys, too numerous to mention.—Lewiston Journal. SPINNER'S FAMOUS AUTOGKAPH.

When he resigned his office a thorough count of the money in the Treasury was made, and the amount on hand fell short SI. 30. This GTeneral Spinner said he thought he could raise by the help of his friends if necessary, but he never would, and he insisted on another count. Two months were spent in recounting and examining books of account until the mistake was discovered, and it was found that General Spinner had not lost or stolen a penny. - He has made, his home in Florida for several years past, making his home in a tent at Pablo beach, not far from Jacksonville. There 'he spent his time, reading, writing, fishing and visiting. He was the pioneer of Pablo, and now it is a nourishing seaside resort.
