A TIa- Tea.'
A London ladies club, the famous New
Victorian, to which American women have
teen introduced when they are lucfcy
enough to have friend? in London, lately
pave an entertainment, called a "play tea,"
that turned out to be a very jolly and re
freshing affair. Fays a Boston papr. By
thf title it was supposed everybody was
expected to play, but it soon appeared that
th majority was simply to look on and
hp amused: for the "play" referred to was
th tltl of any play that people chose to
represent, and then the fun began. Kvery
one rushed at everyone else and eagerly
franned th legion pinned on most of the
dresses in the room, for, beside a prize of
fered for the cleverest representation, there
was also one for the largest number of cor
rect sruesses. The result was delightful.
Home of th plays represented were very
cleverly done. One lady with the words
"A frown" pinned on her sleeve paid ehe
was "the Sign of the Cross;" another bear
ing a bottle of Koko hair restorer repre
sented "For the Crown." another with a
war telegram was "A Message from Mars;"
another having "June 22. written
across her stcd for the "Derby Winner."
The president of the club, wearing th
legend. "Omega Alpha, Omega Alpha."
personified "Zaza," and a lady with "Sal
viati" for hr badge took the first prize,
"The Merchant of Venice." Here, then, is
a pointer for our distracted Federation of
Clubs. Instead of going miles and miles
to squabble at a Congress, why not imi
tate the amicable sisterhood of London,
and relax the horrid strain of "bettering"
or battering each other by some such jolly
wit stimulating pastime as the "play tea."
A Had Hahlt.
Some people have a bad habit of making
rrtep on the back of visiting cards and
then putting them in their pocketbooks or
cardcases, says a Washington paper. At a
recent reception in Washington among the
card there were left upon the tray in
the hostess's hall fwo bore interesting and
important memoranda. The names upon
the other side were well known to the
lady. One of them is that of a gentle
man who stands lor statesmanship, pa
triotism, oratory and almost everything
that is good and great. lie is a happy
husband and, devoted father, and his in
terest In his own domestic affairs was
demonstrated on the back of the card by
this shopping list:
"Nursing bottle for baby," "two bots.
beef, iron and wine." "toothbrush." "tooth
powder." "digestive tablets." "soap." .
The other card was that of a congress
man's wife, and it bore the following note:'
"The last cook you sent us got drunk
and insolent. Send a white woman if you
can get a good one; if not. the best col
ored woman you have on your list. This
is the last time I shall patronize you.".
Evidently this card should have gone to
some intelligence office instead of beintf
left on the tray at the residence of the
i'abinet minister. There was quite a con
troversy that evening between the latter
and his wife as to whether she ought to
f-end these cards as to persons most In
terested. He thought it was her duty to
do so. She said that it would only mortify
A current monthly puts the blame of
men's faults on women. It says:
"Women make society; they are account
able largely for the faults of the male por
tion of it. at least for the growth and
extent of fault; if men fall short it is be
cause women have not demanded higher,
standards. And if the woman who works
is not treated with the same courtesy as
she whose delicately gloved hand holds
her own bank book, it is the fault of that
same dainty hand which Is not held out
In kind comradeship to one that wields
pencil or scissors. Men get their cue from
woman's treatment of women. But men
are rarely unkind; theirs is rather the ab
fence of kindness; and of the two the latter
