MOSTLY There is more senso to some things than may appear upon the surface. This seems to be true with chorus girls and their admirers once in a while. The exception is a rather well known man about town, noted for his extensive and expensive list of show girl acquaintances. They become ex- pensive from the elaborate attention bestowed by the admirer in the way of presents, little dinners and matters of that kind. As he is most easy to ap- proach by the ladies of the rank, and gives up quickly in response to a "touch," his list has been made an ex- tensive one. Value is returned to him, however, from what I hear through the pleasant companions his business friends find him surrounded by when they come to New York to buy his goods.

There are about the purchaser that same evening three, four or more young women who have shown resplendent before the footlights. Under the spell of the lively company and another trip to the city in prospect, the sordid mat- ter of business that must be gone through the next day is quickly trans- acted.

It is reported that the multi-millionaire father about a year ago learned of the attachment of the son for the maid of the merry-merry and had his agents approach her with an offer of $20,000 if she would give up the young hope- ful. She accepted the $20,000, told the young man about it all, and together the couple enjoyed the spending of papa's contribution to their happiness. Of course, papa was not pleased at this course of action. He has not yet said "Bless you, my children," and with his vanished money in mind it is not at all likely that he will do so immediately. The managers of musical comedies One of the chorus girls with the new Weber and Fields Music Hall show re- signed, when informed by the stage manager she would appear as a boy throughout the performance. The young woman remarked as she "gave her notice" that unless one gown at least was assigned her during the evening, she would have no opportun- ity to wear her diamonds. ISTHATttYCUE?! THE NEW ACT ?
