During the past two weeks there has been a marked change in the character of the frequenters of Madison Square. Formerly this beautiful little park was the gathering place of children. Now all this is changed. Occasionally a stray child may still be seen, but more generally what children come there are rushed through at breakneck speed in the tow of a nurse or some other older person. In their place the Square is now thronged with clubmen armed with field glasses. Where babyhood once disported itself, today elderly gentlemen, Delmonico elegants, Casino Johnnies and every other variety of local dude linger in listless idleness. So complete a transformation arouses a not unnatural curiosity; and the Mercury reporter remarked as much to the park policeman.
