	Leslie�s, the Robertson�s and 745.
in it,� said he.   A great deal � probably the whole
of it.     Bellew�s �Bad Advice to Young Wives� by Pro-
fessor Bentharo (been-there-oh!) published in this month�s
Budget, might afford appropriate reading for Mrs B.
at this juncture.             At 3, dreading that the lady
might favor me with a visit, went out and walked
up-town to 38th street, visiting Leslie.  There till 7 �,
then returned by car, and to the Planter�s Hotel,
where I found Boweryem and Robertson, drinking
Madeira.      Stayed till 9 �, then departed, meeting

and Mrs Nast at the threshold, when Sally immedia-

Tommy did a little bit of Sol Eytinge.  (By the way,

reminded of the former tragic force of his liking
for Sally, and felt as if he were in danger of re-
peating it with pretty Matty.    Eliza came and sat
beside me and I chatted with and chaffed her for
an hour or so.     The young men don�t call � they are
quite deserted � she hasn�t asked Haney what�s the
matter with him and shan�t do it � there are plenty
