MRS. LOGAN'S RECEPTION
Society Turned Out in Numbora to
Great Mrs. Tucker.
Senator Hill on a Flying Visit Mrs.
Leluiid Sum ford in Tonn for
n Short Smy
There was n real carnival on Tour
teenih strict yesterday afternoon when
tho whole ut Vanity Fair nude Its way in
smart toilets and gay eqqulpages to greet
Mrs. Tuiker and say farewell to Mrs.
Logan, who is on the eve of departure for
the East, where, with a number of young
ladies from various parts of the e-ountrv,
who have been placed in her ehjrge,
Mie will spend the winter.
The day seemed made for this agreeable
function, at which, for the first time this
year, all the fashionables gathered.
The Logan house, whieli Is admirably ar
ranged for a large reception, was never
niore attractive than jesterday, decked
in holiday attire and lighted with cleetric
lights, whlih were softened by colored
sliadc3. The floral decorations were cry
haudsome. and bliowed that an artistic
hand had guided the arrangement. Great
bowls of cosmos flowers 6tood about on the
tables and made an agreeable dash of color
against the dark walls and hangings.
The refreshment table wa3 beautiful.
Mauve, yellow, and white made a border
entirely around tho table. A great bowl
of La Trance roses stood in the center of
the table, and at either end were made
pieces fll!M with candled fruit. The colar
scheme was carried oat In all the table
decorations. For this occasion Mrs. Logan
brojght out all of her beautiful cut glass
and the exquisite bilver, much of which was
given to her when Gea. Logan was In public
Tea was sened In the memorial room.
A. table at one end held a steaming samova r.
i.uumnn;:iuc-iiwauerscarriedtbcfrasrant
beverage lo those who prefered this room,
which contains a many smiienlrs of Gen.
Logan's brilliant career and is full of
historical Interest. Eeryone eommtnted
on the agreeable Innovation of having the
lea served by skilled waiters rather than
trust It to the care of those fascinating
joutig women, who are apt to become so In
terested In some esiecia! guests as to for
get their duty.
Mrs. Tucker's little son, Logan Tucker,
in a page's costume of purple, with broad
lace collar, circulated among the guests, a
verltabV little knigl.t. The Metropolitan
Mandolin Club, directed by A. M. Duforu.
was stationed in the ball and plaj cd during
the entire afternoon.

guests. Mrs. Kenyon. of St. Paul, and Mrs.
T. C. Crawford, nf Yen- Y.irt clnrjl at tl..
doorway nf the flrt drawirg-room, never
looked better or seemed In more radiant
health and spirits. She worea very becom
ing toilet of rnjal pjrple silk and elvet
combined, trnnmeii with rare old lace.
It was a regal costume and especially
suited Mrs. Logan's style.
Mrs. Tucker wore a charming gown of
mauve and yellow, which was extremely
becoming and iffectlve.
Mrs. John A. Logan andMrs.Kcnyon wore
white costumes. Mrs. Cravford's dress
was a very pretty combination ofblackand
yellow, especlallyappropriateto herstatucs
que style.
Trom i o'clock until long after dark
a constant stream of people passed in front
of those receiving.

Davis, Mrs. Surgeon General Moore, Mrs.
Justice r,cld, Mrs. Condit-Smith and Miss

"Polly put the kettle on" this afternoon,
put It on prettily, daintily amid flowers
and graceful greetings, and everjthing that
makes life attractive. Those who "tafce
for pleasure a gossiping dish of tea" may
congratulate themselves, shake hands with
themselves "a la Cbluols," for the season
of "So'clock's" has begun.
No function finds greater favor among
Washington people, and norrhere in Amir
Ica are Just such delightful pathcrings of
this kind as at the capital. Can anything be
moTe satisfactory socially than to sit in
cozy corners on luxuriously pillowed di
vans. In the glow of lamps shrouded in
pale tulle like stage ghosts, or skirted In
scarlet and gold like many ballet dancers,
or beside small tables just big enough lor
a silver candlestick capped in some deli
cate tint, a porcelain tea cup at one's elbow,
and chat between sips of fragrant any
kind j ou choose and discuss witli great men
trifles; with small men politics and trade;
with wise men fashion: with chappies
science and art, as is thecrstom?

Has a StlniuliitinK Etfe-ct Upon row
holdi'mm Flrft rreuyteriaiiClinrcli.
The coming ot Kev. Dr. Tahnage to tho
Tirst Presbyterian Church, on Four and a
half street, has had n stimulating effect on
pew holders and others of the congregation.
For the last few days Mr. E. M. Tojraan,
a member ot the board of trustees, has been
kept quite busy receiving and filing ap
plications for pews and slttirurs f "' the com
ing fiscal year. At present no contracts are
made with the applicants, nor will be until
after the installation of Dr. Talmagc on the
23d int.
The seating capacity of the auditorium
accommodates about C25, comfortably, and
from the applications already retvi ed it Is
evident that nearly every desirable seat
In the church is being eagerly sought. Of
course there arc applications from others
than members ot the congregation, but they
are not many.
The most desirable seals are about tbe
middle of tbe central division of pews and
these are nearly all secured by applications.
In this ell vision about a dozen rows from tbe
chancel rail on the right of tbe left aisle is
President Cleveland's pew, No. 132. Next
behind this but oue is pew No. 128, which
has been assigned to Dr. Talmage. In this
same division on the right and a few rows in
front is No. 75, the pew of Iter. Dr. Sunder
land, the pastor.
Tbe board ot trustees has issued a clrcnlar
containing the rules regulating the rental
ot pews and sittings.
