With the publicity given the sto ry ot the French ball at, Spokane, it may be certain that there is a frantic hurrying home of absent wives, and a strenuous hustle of erring husbands to be absent when the loved spouses ar rive.

It was privately tipped off as a select French ball, with in vitatioDs limited to fifty. . Before the affair ended its features would have shamed the Moulin Rouge in some forms of licentiousness. . , At 5 o'clock , this morning the patty brtke. up. An -: insufficient supply of backs . was easily -overcome, many of the women climbing on top of the vehicles, while others bestrode the horses and were thus conveyed to their homes in the Tenderloin. , Originally the affair was planned as a rally r for a ecore of . business men, whose wives and families are at summer resorts.; But other men heard of it and pleaded for, invita tions and finally the 50 limit; was decided upon.. The gathering" in cluded, business men, bankers, phy sicians and several members of the Spokane club-. ' ' . Down in the Tenderloin five par lor bouses closed their doors in or der that the inmates could attend the select French ball. After a few hours of revelry the women tired of plain dancing and began acrobatic stunts, for which they were loudly applauded. One of these ; was a band daDce, the performers endeav oring to keep waltz time while bal ancing on, their bands. ,- Another favorite pastime was a champagne shampoo, until the floor was too gummy for dancing. .

"The tip-exacting Pullman car por ters are the recipients of a gooa many knocks from press and public, tmt they are not the worst in. the world," remarked a commercial trav eler to a Washington Star man. "They may have a pretty fierce way of drilling for tips, but when it comes' to the matter of honesty I knowt-on of them that's there with the goods, as the saying goes. j " "I left San Francisco, or, rather, Oakland, on the Santa Fe line for Chicago at ' 8 o'clock in the evening a couple of weeks ago last Sunday. The gang that I met in 'Frisco had been rather too enthusiastic in giv ing me a good time of it out there on the day of my departure, so that when I woke up on ihe train silong toward 7 o'clock the next morning the sleeper bunk felt pretty warm and my coppers a whole lot warmer. The nearest, in fact, the first stop at vhich I would have a chance to fix thtise hot coppers out was Mojave. ani so I hustled into my. clothes to be ready to hop off the train during the stop at Mojave for one of those kat en jammer alleviators. '"I. asked the Pullman conductor how long the train would stop at Me'-iye, and he replied that the stop wonld last ten minutes. I raced into the station cafe xWhen, the train pulled into Mojave, and instructed the man in charge of the bar to rig me up one of those long. long damp things. He went ,at the job in a pret ty scientific manner, and the piece of wet work that he set before me was a rare thing to find right alongside of the California desert. It was such a fine and effective creation, in fact, that I asked him to frame up an other one, and I got away with this with equal joy. Then I leisurely strolled to the door to take a look at my train and saw the end of it curling away in the rarefied distance on its way toward the land of the rising sun. It had pulled out without notifying me.. I hustled into the ticket office to ask the man in the window when I'd be able to corral another eastbound train, and he said that it 'ud be along at 8 o'clock the next morning the mate to the train that had departed without me; there was only one of the overland ex presses per diem. So there I saw my self stuck in Mojave, Cal., the most miserable little sand dune on the globe, for a full twenty-four hours. "But' that wasn't the worst of it. I had left my Gladstone bag wide open on my bunk, with my wearing apparel thrown around the section every which way, and in the ""bag I had placed, on the night before, $200 in gold coin, the stuff being too heavy to carry around m my pockets with any comfort.
