A Novel and Successful Idea.
Since suburban property lias been at "fever
heat" our many enterprising real estate dealers
have introduced many novel ways of transport
ing prospectors to their respective subdivisions,
without cost to the prospector or purchaser.
Tho most novel, as well as enjoyable, was a
tally-ho party given by Mr. A. JE. Handle,
owner of Congress Heights, last week. The
following ladies were among tho party: Mrs.
D. 13. Culberson and Mrs. Joseph Abbott, of
Texas, Mrs. J. II. Uankhead and Mfss Mario
Baukhead, of Alabama; Mrs. W. II. Perry, of
South Carolina; Mrs. T. G. Skinner, of North
Carolina, and Miss Daisy Hampton, daughter
of Senator Hampton, constituting the Congres
sional delegation; also Miss Julia Nelson and
Miss Lucy Herndou, of Virginia; Mrs. A. M.
aud Miss Langllo, of North Dakota, and Mrs.
II. Tingle, of Maryland. The proximity of
this beautiful subdivision to Washington, and
the supei broads by which it is reached, makes
it one of the most deslrablo places arouud tho
city for a home.
