At tixe end Voi-k In -ivhieii space can be bought for the insertion of a social item. The press .agent, therefore, had to -secure the publication of his iteni.s, not through bribery nor yet througli personal inQnenca. Bribery wmild Jiave grot him nowhere, and personal influence, had he possessed any, wtxild have beon dissipated as rapidly as it was used.. ; " His stpcl!'in trade was an expert knowledeo of the demands of the social editors. -He was well aware that they crave news, and he proceeded to furnjah tt, aat directly, biii; through the advice as to her social .ictivitias which he Ted discreetly to his client.

In the evening'! saw the children perform, and "their evolutions were; admirable and pleasing. All the rank and fashion of Dresden drove out In automobiles and .carriages' to see the show, and the tiers of seats In the theatre were filled with a crowd better dressed than is usually the case In an ordinary German theatre. The students strolled on to 'the stage with long dressing gowns of sombre colors, shaped like kimonos, over their sketchy performing ; costumes. They sat on the floor In little groups, be-tweenthe audience and the first batch of performers, the children of the garden city, a merry band of some, fifty youngsters. Jacques tiok his place at the, piano, rose and^made a few exr planatory remarks; ii} German, .;Wlth /ai French accent, and then he played for the children to dance,! "Thera were spme fifty- boys and glrlst-ad-of them wStA bare feet and bare legs, and wearing short kmckerbockory and Jersejjs. It was a pretty sight to watch them. They walked or ran round the stage in mazy figures, waving .their �little white arms. Then they all squatted in a great ring on the ground, and a smaH child was told to interpret a musical lihraso which Jacques played. The mite looked about ten, and she rose and moved and gestured sense that "there's music In the sighing ot, the reed, there's music in thii rushing of the rlll..there's music in all things if people had ears."

MADBMOISBLLB GERMAINE BRfilGNAT, who on Thursday: .'next will be Queen of the'Mi-^' Careme Carnival, Is a blonde young typist.of twenty. She is a native of Paris, and was elected against eight:: other- cpmpetltors. Serious men- like M, Gain, ; President of the Municipal Council of. Paris, and Maurice, Barres, Deppty for Paris, and acadamlclan.; took "part in the ceretnonies . which made.her Queen of Queens for Paris. The assembly which elected her was opened wlth.^pe^ches.. There are two elections before the Queen of Queens reaches this honor. First, district' 'queens are elected. Then from these the Queen of Queens Is chosen, and by iballot, as in tjie first election. ' Mademoiselle Bregnat has the reputation of being an excellent typist. She is the most joyous girl who appears among the iiildlnettes every day in the tlue de la Palx. Here is her explana-,tIon of how It feels to be Queen, even though only for a day-or perhaps for a year, as she claims: , "I'd rather bo Queen of Paris for la day than Queen of any other place for a lifetime. As a matter of fact, I shall'be Queen for a year. My reign lasts, until my successor will be elected in January, 1914,; Then I turn pvcr my authority to next year's-favored one, just OS President Fallleres has to President Poinoare. It is true, however, that .1 shall be acclaimed on the streets and boulevards of Paris only fpr a day. That will bo in Mid-Uent. on February 27thi "I-wos-bom In the Fourteenth Ward, the very district wherein I was elected Queen!

At tlie City Hall, tho health of tho Queen:--that jB me-will be .proponed by the Mayor, Then glasses will be clinked, and we shall all. drink champagne. And 1 shall make the speech: from the throne. -It -will be my maiden effort, "I shall also be received at the Ely-see' by our new President, ;Jj. Ppln-care. President, Polncare, and . myself w6ro both elected on the second ballot; Ana I am the' first- of President?Pplijfvj care's queens..-This pleases, me > very ' much., .Other, monurchs win. visit M. PolncariS this ye(ir;'but not before me. Tho Queen of England and the Queen of Denmark are ,, coming, but the Qqeon of Paris will get ahead of thefm all. And PreBldynl Poliicilre will make mo a presentof the .tradltlohtti brace-;lo,t when I visit the Elysce. ' "And, then/ In th6:'fe'vonlng, m,vself ,and my court ladle�:iwlll all dance, ati the ball.
