Washisgtox, Feb. 13. Only a few
weeks will now elapse before the change
of administration will occur. As the
time approaches, public interest ia
these important events increases to a
very great extent. , No feature of the
ceremonies Is attracting more attention
than the inaugural ball, which will be
held in the great pension office building
and will be on a magnificent tcale. The
public approach to the building will be
from G and Fifth streets northwest, F
street being reserved for the president
and his party. The ball will open
promptly at 8 o'clock, and dancing
that is, official dancing will cease
promptly at 12, as the 4th of March
this year falls on Saturday. Every
thing in connection with the affair, il is
stated, will be on a strictly democratic
plane. There will be no "purple can
opy drared over the president's head,
nor anything of that nature nothing
anywhere to indicate that anybody is
king but the people. Mrs. Cleveland's
well-known love of flowers is to furnish
the keynote of the decorations for the
ball. The vast expanse of the great
building will be bright with flowers and
Resplendent with every triumph of t'ne
florist's art. The proceeds of the ball
over and above all expenfe will tro to
the poor of the district of Columbia.
Tickets of admission will be sold at -
each. The last inaugural year, after
aalisfiying all obligation and refunding
all subscriptions, t.i,000 was turned
over to the poor fund ax the resultof the
ball, and it is believed that the amount
will be as large or larger this year.

British minister at Ilouolulu forwarded

"The klacKaye Spectatorium," as this
building Is called, will cover an area of
&00x330 feet, and the ideas that are
there to be carried out originated with
Mr. Steel alacKaye. and are said to be
novel and unusual. The Columbian

The Bpectatoriam production and ac

may have thought that his case waa the
exception that proves the role.
Mr. Parton waa a constant writer and
a pretty frequent author for mora than

And that ia the secret of the auccaaa of
those who have adopted literature as a

little heed to tha pecuniary considera

living out of authorship must do aa ia

their clients and increase them if pos

which indicate that Mr. Parton was mis
taken. In his own vicinity there lived sev

at the busineae of authorship. Mr.C'harles
Carleton Coffin abandoned journalism
after a brilliant career as a war corre

There have been a number of success
ful authors of late who have complained
that they cannot live by their pens.
A few years ago a novel appeared en
titled "Uuerndale." It waa published
over a nom de plume. "J. 8. of Dole,''
and it was regarded aa one of tba eoo-
cemful books of tha year. Its author,
Mr. Btimson, waa a recent graduate of
Harvard college, and theAuccesa of tba

tion. Yet be baa practically abandoned

ia making money practicing law.
Itobert Orant, another young lioston
litterateur who won some fame, reliea
upon the practice of a dryer profession
than literature for hia support. John
Habberton, who made a great hit with
"Helen's Ikibies," and who writes ex
ceedingly clever stories, relies upon jour
nalism for hia support, while literature
ia a side issue with him. Mrs. Burnett

Lord Fauntloroy," waa produced, al

practically abandoned story telling for
These casea. however, simply Illus
trate the fact that that sort of literature
which develops fiction cannot be relied
opon for a very handsome support. Tba
authors who make money are thoaa like
Parton, iienaoa J. LosMng and Coffin,
who are able to set forth, in a atyla
which doea not shoot over the head of
the public, either history or the stones
of achievement or the careers of famous
niru in a manner which niakea the tell
ing of the story mo-it attractive. Tha
author who can cultivate this quality la

who bava been named, and would prob
ably earn mora money in this tort of
writing than he could if ha went into
