NEW YEAR'S IN SOCIETY.
Continued from Nluth Panel
means a fanatic I am noTcrtholees strongly op
posed to tho practlco of offering Intoxicating
drinks to young mon whoso habits aro not suf
ficiently formed to withstand temptation. I be
lloro that thero aro few but who will agrco with
me that Postmaster General Wanamakcr do
eerves high pralso for his consistent adheronco
to his principles In tho omission of wlnos from
his table In tho faco of all adrorso criticism.
Wcro thero moro such men It would bo bettor
for tho community at large. I bcllevo that ono
should bo governed In such matters by con
6clonco rather than by the moro following of a
fashion. I would rather run tho risk of elvlng
oilonso to tho few than risk bciug tho Instru
ment of ovll to any. In prlvato Flfo each ono
has tho undisputed prlvllego of following his
own inclinations in entertaining, but In official
circles it is Bomowhat different. Yet ovon hero
there is much room for discretion, and I should
novcr offer wines or punch upon an occasion of
a promiscuous cathorlng, though I do not banish
them from my tabic. 1 llko tho established cus
tom of keeping open house on that day, but
when it degenerates Into a merely formal round
of calls upon comparative strangers it loses Us
most attractive feature.
"BW TEAM'S HOUSE FAKTIES.
"A charming Innovation already indulged In
at tho North Is known as houso parties, whero a
pleasant company of friends and relations gather
at 6ome hospitable country place in tho city's
suburbs and spend several days In merrymaking
after tho old English custom of 'Twelfth
Night.' In this way true pleasure is secured
and tho moro formal hospitalities dispensed
THE DKESS COAT QUESTION.
I asked Mrs. Wlndom what she thought of
gentlemen wearing full dress when calling on
Now Year's Day.
"Thero is but one general rule to bo followed,"
she replied. "No gentleman should appear in
full dress until after 0 o'clock unless ho wishes
to bo thought ignorant of tho proprieties. I
think that ladies also of ton make a mistake in
appearing in evening toilot during a day recep
tion, and display bad tasto In adopting a decol
lete stylo of gown upon any and every occasion,
Bare neck aud arms aro never pretty except In
the evening, yet I notlco that many adopt the
style upon an ordinary morning reception. I
scarcely believe tho sociable indulgence In Now
Year visiting will bo dispensed with at the Capi
tal bo long as official receptions continue. Of
course we will follow tho usual custom and be
at homo to callers upon tho 1st of January aftor
my return from assisting Mrs. Harrison at tho
A STOHY Bt MHS. SECRETARY NOBLE.
Mrs. Noble says that eho has very decided
views as to the offering of wines and that sho is
strenuously opposed to the use of liquor of any
kind during an indiscriminate assemblage. "I
usually take a glass of claret or light wine every
day at dinner," said 6he, "but I should never
offer it upon the occasion of a public reception.
I was some years since deeply Impressed by a
simple incident during an evening reception at
a friend's house at my home in St. Louis, which
Influenced me to take a decided stand. Tho
circumstance was a conversation I overheard
between two young people. Tho young man
was offered a glass of wine by his fair hostess,
who upon his refusal urged tho class upon him.
'Do not ask me to drink,' ho pleaded, 'as it is
my weakness and I fear to indulge.' In a spirit
of thoughtless vanity she ignored his excuse,
and, handing him tho wine, said, 'Only tako
this to please me and drink to my health.' Ho
complied rather than to appear ungnllant, and
was intoxicated for three weeks afterward. I
shall never willingly ho the means of placing
temptation in another's way, and my New Year's
recoptlons aro no exception to this rule."
MRS. SENATOR CARLISLE WOULD ABOLISH THEM.
Mrs. Carlisle, wife of tho eminent Senator
.from Kentucky, is an advocato of strict tem
perance. So consistent Is she that upon the oc
casion of tho handsomo dinner Riven last winter
by tho then Senator to tho Justices of tho Su
preme Court no wine whatever was used.
When I asked her opinion sho roplled:
"Of courso you are sufficiently familiar with
my sentiments in regard to tho offering of
liquor not to doubt my answer. I never touch
wine or punch of any kind during all the sea
son's round of leceptlous and teas, and I nover
permit it to appear upon my table. It makes
no difference what tho world thinks, I shall
always keep strictly to my principles."
A DETROIT VIEW.
Mrs. Sonator McMillan, of Michigan, said:
"I can only speak from tho standpoint of my
Detroit homo, as I have had but ono New Year's
experience since coming to Washington. I llko
tho practice in a small communlt', whero ono
can welcome nor friends in an informal social
way, but this can scarcely be followed hero,
whero the cosmopolitan character of tho Capital
compels ono to oxtend her courtesies to all. It
seems to me, however, that when tboro aro so
many receptions throughout tho official season
as thero aro hero it is foolish to go to so much
trouble for ono occasion that will seldom brine
any return either In pleasure or profit. Dress
coats aro decidedly out of placo in a morning
uuu, u minim- wuui mo excuse, ana as to uio
offering of wino I always havo some simple
claret punch in addition to bouillon and colfeo
to hand with light refreshments for hospitality's
sako, and each caller has tho prlvllego of mak
ing his own choice. I am often persuaded that
people lndulgo too generously In coffee upon a
round of calls, and, llko everything else, the In
dulgence may bo carried to oxcess. Lot us ho
tempcrato in all things."
MRS, SENATOR I'AYNE.
Mrs. Senator Payne, of Ohio, mother of Mrs.
Whitney, said: "I ofton regret tho dying out of
the old custom, but I roalizo that tho original
significance has been widely lost in theso mod
ern times. Formerly wo never thought of set
ting a largo tablo in Cloveland, unless for a
winding up of tho day, when a largo company
would bo invited to close tho festivities with a
dance, followed by a big supper. Generally
from a daintily spread table to ono sido of the
open fireplace, with its hugo crackling logs,
would bo dispensed by tho hostess wlno and
cake. Theso cakes woro inado from an old
German reclpo and known as "Oiley Cakes."
In addition to theso rich sweets there would
also bo tho "Washington Crullor," twlsted'in
tho form of a stick about three inches long, and
then looped over tho finger. Placod in tho
boiling lard it quickly curled up and hecamo
brown and crisp. As to wine, in former times
young mon did not expect to indulge in the
liquors placed upon tho sideboard for the elderly
gentlemen, but stood aside for their elders.
Now, tho rulo Is reversed, and wo could not
limit tho courtesy without giving unpardonablo
offense. I shall not receive this year, aB my
housekeeper is seriously ill, ono whom I havo
had for nearly twenty years, and besides wo
havo ouly ju6t returned to tho city, and, owing
to the difficulty of securing efficient help at thus
soason, our bouso is uot in proper ordor for en
tertaining." Misa Grundy, Jr.
