the disiday of rare achievement and
its iRfiti?nce on the development of the
finer sense of the artistic these after
noons afforded a real treat to lovers
of. social Intercourse, pwiety havinc
lamely attended the brilliant occasion.
The greater )rton of the main
floor of the Hawaiian Hotel h.id been
reserved for the Flower Show and the
dansant which followed, and during
both afternoons crowd passed up the
circular stairs, entering between jed
estals of gold Niciko Ulies and spread
in; fishtail ferns, which formed a flor

The Ewa lanai- was screened, and
'against the fine. web f bnff bamboo
'appeared a foimal arrangement of
palms, the Gerrit Wilder collection le-
inc . jarticularly Interesting. These,
-about three dozen in all, .and ComprU-'i

: and the dainty little Hnmilis jialms ar-.
ranged on Canton stands and in white
enamelled baskets, exhibited by Mrs.
,W. K, Castle. Mrs;.: Iorrin Thurston,
Mrs. E. D. Tencey, Princess Kalanl
anaolo and Mr. John A. Dominis were
wonderfully effective. One huge terra

cupied a prominent place and attract

In the heart of this dainty jungl
rose an imposing ti)ectaclea huge old
treo trunk, " nailed .nd , urotesqtve,
garlanded with vari-toned groeo moss,
and smelling dark and earthy, where
tufts of maidenhair flourished and the
rarest orchids hung pendant.: their
delicate shades contrasting bewitch
Ingly against their sombre setting.
One felt transported for the moment
into the heart of a Jungle and its hu
mid fascination moved 'the senses.
For this splendid exhibition Mr. Ar
thur Wall, as chairman, deserves the
highest praise, as well as Mr. E. D.
Tenney, Mrs. Andrew Fuller, Mrs. W.
M. Giffard and Miss Rose Herbert, who
assisted fcim in this artistic creation,
and whose rare plants made possible
its perfection. .Among these also were

for the lady of fragrant sweet peas
to match the centerpiece, English blue
violets in the form of a Joutoumiere
being the favor for the gentleman.

pale bronze, its diagonal bow of satin '
in rich dull gold partly concealing

pink plumerias, veiled by a bow of
flesh-tinted illusion, a tall bronze ped

back "memories .'.of the sweet, sad j
strains of maile-wreatbed Hawaiians '
cf the long ago, whose plaintive notes
melting into the night left a lingering,
haunting sweetness iu their wike.
And as though in bald contrast to
these modest little blossoms of the
past a huge basket of the American
beauties of today burst forth from the
restraint cf pink satin that held
them to the handle of gold. This, as
well as a "basket of wold things,"' was
exhibited by Mrs. A. Hocking, who
cleverly and with artistic skill had
fashioned from a bronze basket a few
yellow berries, some dried seed pods
from the wild morning-glory, and a
spray of air-plant blosonis, the most
wonderful basket of all!
