-WASHINGTON. D. G. SUNDAY, .NOVEMBER 17, 1912.
IDull (Tare (Bivart a !&ack Sat.
WITH the return of Mrs. Taft to the White House, and the wives of
the Cabinet officers and diplomats also in residence, the vrintersea-
son in Washington his really begun. Many hostesses have waited
for the announcement of the dates for the State dinners and receptions to be
given at the White House before arranging their own social calendars. The
season is not long- this jear on account of the early arrival of Lent But the
gayety will probably be all the more intense because of its short duration.
During the past week Washington extended a warm welcome to the thou
sand or more charming strangers "within hergates, making them feel that true
Southern hospitality is to be found at the National Capital as well as "down in
Dixie." There was a continuous round of entertainments for the Daughters of
the Confederacy, beginning with the brilliant reception at the Congressional
Library Monday evening tendered them by "Miss Nannie Randolph Heth, presi
dent of the Southern Relief Sodety, and ending with the beautiful ball at the
Pan-American Building, Friday night, given by Mr. John Barrett, director gen
eral of the Pan-American Union, joint host with the Southern Society of
Washington and the Southern Commercial Congress,
The reception at the White House on Thursday afternoon given in their
honor gratified all the delegates to the congress who desired most earnestly
to meet the President and Mrs. Taft. Besides these official entertainments the
Southerners were the .recipients of much private hospitality.
The departure of the British Ambassador and Mrs. Brjce will be keenly
felt, for they have made many warm friends during their sojourn in Washing
ton, the British Embassy under their regime being the center for men of letters,
and many brilliant social functions have taken place there.
i If Mr. Bryce's successor should be Sir Arthur Cecil Spring Rice he will
return to a" post already familiar to him, as he has been attached to the emj
bassy staff on two different occasions. While here he was extremely popular,
and will receive a warm greeting from his old friends.
Many'members of the diplomatic corps are in mourning this winter, which
will prevent much entertainment at present. Mme. Jusserand, wife of the
French Ambassador and present dean of the corps, is in mourning. Mme.
Bakhmeteff, wife of the Russian Ambassador, is likewise in mourning, and
Mme. Havenith, wife of the Bulgian Minister, is in mourning for her brother,
Mr. Charles Ffoulke. The Spanish Legation is in official mourning for the
Premier of Spam, recently assassinated
A number of Washingtonians who are lovers of the horse have gone to
New York for the horse show at Madison Square Garden this week. Miss
Helen Buchanan, daughter of Bng. Gen James Buchanan, U. S. A., retired,
has entered two of her horses in the show. She is a noted horsewoman, having
won many silver cups by her fearless riding, and her mounts have taken nu
merous blue ribbons.
Although Miss Buchanan, the Misses Greble and Allen are "army girls"
and not Washingtonians, the Capital is proud to claim them as among the city's
best riders They proved their mettle at the horse show held here last spring,
and often brought the crowded grand stand to its feet by daring jumping and
Mr. William Phelps Eno lias gone to New York for the express purpose of
attending the horse show, as have Mr. and Mrs. George H. Mjers.
An event of this week.is the marriage of Miss Eleanor Cullora Ridgely,
daughter of Mr. William Barret Ridgely and granddaughter 'of Senor Shelby
Cullom, and Dr Henry P. Parker, which will take place at Senator Culloms
home in Massachusetts Avenue on Friday. The. date chosen is the eighty-third
birthUay anniversary of the retiring Senator 'from Illinois. 'Only the members
of the two families will be present at the ceremonv, and a few additional friends
will be invited to the reception afterward. Little Miss Eleanor Ridgely Brown,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs Phelps Brown, will be her aunt s only attendant, and
Mr. John Donaldson Parker will be his brother's best man. After the recep
tion, Dr. Parker and his bride will leave .Washington for a brief wedding trip,
and upon their return will reside at 1728 Connecticut Avenue.
Dr. Parker is a son of the late Commodore Foxhall Parker, U. S. N., and
lus mother was a Miss Donelson, both members of two distinguished Mary
land families Their country residence at Elk Ridge, Md, was noted for its
generous hospitality. Both Miss Ridgely and Dr. Parker are extremely popular
in Washington soaetj

Saturday, the debut tea for Miss Mane Adams on Friday, the debut of Miss
Eloise Orme on Saturday, and Miss Johnson's debut on Thursday.
