M.t Deau Louise: At Belcourt, next Frldny,
Mrs. John Sherwood, of Now York and Paris,
will descant on "Tho Possibilities of nn Ameri
can Salon." I am anxious to hear what a woman
so gifted and experienced as Mrs. Sherwood is
has to say on this interesting subject. It seems
to me that tho outlook for tho establishment of
a salon is not promising just now, as many of
tho mammas of tho smart set missed tho chances
of early education, and aro in tho Bwlm with
their respective broods simply by tho power of
dollars galore. But tho young generation is
oducated "to a degree," and with tho inherent
tasto and tact of bright young womanhood
thero is no reason why thero should not bo an
American salon in tho near future. If you de
sire to study refinement and graco a French
Salon is the place whero you will find it,
as you know by your own observation.
In Paris wealth is not necessary to have an
agrecablo salon; but the hostess must bo attrac
tive and gracoful. I really do not think
thero is much genuine hospitality is Prance, as
hospitality goes here. Tho French aro apt to con
sider everything as thrown away for which they
do not receivo a return. An old lady, who
mado her homo in Paris for many years, told
mo onco that thero tho different degrees of
hospitality vary from a dinner to a few wax
candles. Thero were women, she said, who had
nothing to give except their agrecablo society,
and theso wero said to give to love, (dies don
ncnt (I aimer;) others gfvo wit and mind, f cllcs
doniwit dc Vcsprit.) An American salon,
modeled on tho French, ought to bo superior,
inasmuch as tho greater freedom of our social
intercourse and tho genius of our institutions
foster tho independent individuality of Ameri
can women. The Princess Mathlldo has a salon
wherein literary men, artists, musicians, and
talent of every kind may bo mot, and this not
withstanding tho fact that the Princess Is in
"tho sere and yellow leaf" of latest autumn.
Politics, even here, aro important factors
socially, and a change of administration makes
a bier unheaval. brinninc to tho surface women
who can only hope for Washington prominence
through tho official position of their husbands.
Lately we have had an instance of a husband's
resignation of office through tho disappoint
ment oi nis reaiiy en irming wuo at Mrs. Har
rison's failure to give her the social official rec
ognition her qualifications and position cer
tainly entitled her to. A cup of tea split on
Mrs. Masham's silk dress is said to have caused
the downfall of tho Marlboroughs at tho Court
of Queen Anne, and history repeats itself I
Just to think of tho color line brinclng disin
tegration to Wlmodaughsis and agitating the
worthy ladies of aristocratic descent in the
Louise Home in tho very same week. I am
told that a lady of the latter place felt the need
of spiritual ministrations, and when tho matron
requested her to name the clergvmen she
wished to have pray with her tho old lady men
tioned a colored pastor. No remonstrances or
reason could change her intention of having tho
spiritual consolations of the colored brother,
and her wish had to be complied with. Im
agine, if you can, the Indignation of the in
mates of tho Home, most of whom are South
erners with ante-bellum Ideas.
Mrs. Robert Lincoln has returned to England.
On tho occasion of the Queen's next drawing
room our Minister's wife will emerge from her
mourning retirement to present some of her
country women to majesty. From my friend,
Mary (J., who resided in England two years, I
havo learned tho modus operandi of securing
this much coveted honor, and, after all, it is
very eaBily obtained. From the tales of re
turned travelers who "havo been there" one
would think it more difficult than securing a
patent of nobility. Now, Mary C. says (and
you know her husband's official position in
England) that all Americans aro eligible to the
honor provided they are morally respectable.
They send their names to the American Legation.
By tho American Minister or the Charg6 d Affairs,
they aro sent to tho Lord Chamberlain, who
places them on the list of those to bo presented
at the next drawing-room. Tho ordeal comes
when tho Court officers pass judgment in tho
the matter of dress, which must conform
strictly to a fixed rule. Low-necked dresses
aro dcrigcur) except (by recent concession) In
cases of illness or age; even in these instances
tho Lord Chamberlain's sanction must bo ob
tained previous to the day. Tho length of tho
train is prescribed by regulation and thero
must be no dovlatlon. Tho men have ereatly
tho advantage of tho women, for an American
gentlemen Is expected to wear tho conventional
evening suit; moreover tho Queen holds eight
levees duilnctho season when men only aro
received. Two drawing-rooms are tho ladles'
Sarah Bernhardt is coming next week, and
sho is responsible not only for a reign of Cleo
patra gowns, girdles, corset waists, etc., but
even for a Cleopatra pocket handkerchief, which
is a ten-Inch square of linen cambric, small
enough to ho kept rolled up in tho palm of tho
hand. Thero Is also a shade of yellow called
Chenlllo Is going to be used for bonnets. This
Is 06 great a novelty as chamois was when first
Tho concert at tho British Legation last week
was no end of a success, socially, artistically,
and, more than all, financially, I wish you had
been with mo, for it would surely havo pleased
your musical ear. Ever j'ours, Alice.

The Happenings oi Hyattsville.
Tho free delivery of malls in town has proved
qulto a success.
Tho entertainment given for tho benefit of tho

as a social feature In our town.

Wall is getting better, and, it Is hoped, will bo
