There seems to bo a kind of falling weather
fatality about tbo children's concert at the
White House Grounds, as yesterday was an
other rainy day. This spell of dampacss was
not even sighted from afar by the keen-oyed
observer at the Weather Bureau. Ho only
saw "cooler and clear" weather in his horo
scope. Mrs. Harrison had only issued a few
invitations to some of the diplomats and their
wives still in tho city to bo present on
the south portico during the children's
concert, which was set for 4 o'clock P. M.
yesterday. Bnron do Strnve, of Kussla: M.
Itoustan, the French Minister; Mi.vroveni Bey,
Minister from Turkey, and Mr. A. do Clapa
rede, of Switzerland, with ladles of
the Legations, were invited to bo
present, also Mr. and Mrs. Carnan,
Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Mason, Mrs. Ashton, Dr.
and Mrs. Loring, and a few other personal
Jriends, all in the most informal way, as Mrs.
Harrison has not yet recovered from tho
fatigue incident to the long pleasure trip.
That tour will be talked of in tho Harrison
family to tho fourth generation, as the
souvenirs of silver and gold with other pre
cious and beautiful things will bo heirlooms
worth cherishing and showing off for long.
' That big slice of our country known as the
West seems to think that silver and
gold are none too good for daily
use, to judge from tho lavish way they
were used for useful or ornamental
souvenirs for the President and Mrs. Harrison.
The upper hall tables are covered with them,
and the display looks as though somebody
'had just been married. Notwithstanding tho
cares of state, there arc some compensations
in store for happy Presidents who can make
felicitous speeches when on their travels.
Mr. E. .T. Ilalford, private secretary of the
President, has returned to the city from his
brief European trip with his daughter, Miss
Jennie Halford, much improved in health.
They spent eleven days' in London between
the going and return "voyages. Miss Jennie
enjoyed the old historical places very much.
For the present Mr. Halford and his daughter
are at the Elsmere.
Society's interest in the engagement of Miss
Annie Edwards, daughter of Mr. John L.
Edward?, of one of Washington's oldest and
most aristocratic families, and Mr. Charles
Gleuu Rimrwalt, of Cincinnati, is delightfully
stimulated since the formal announcement of
its sequel, to transpire on tho 35 dny of June
next at high noon. Cupid's nmti pranks with
tho affairs of these two worshipui & at his
shrine have well-nigh proved tragic. "True
love never runs smoothly," and when last
October, which was set for tho ringing of
wedding bells, tho expectant Benedict was
stricken with a supposed mortal illness, young
liearts and old quickened with sympathy and
the wise ones said: "Ah, this is the end
whom the gods love die young," butlovo dies
hard and Cupid reigns. Again tho marriage
day is set, again society is bidden, the Fates
must be kind at last, and "l'envoi" of a host
of friends is that every blessing, every happi
ness, may attend the union of these two
