THE EESIDEKCE OF MBS.
A Pittsburg caterer makes the astonish
ing statement that Pittsburg society women
are eating too much at afternoon teas. This
matter is not quite as it appears on the face
of it. The caterer does not refer to the
overburdening of the stomach, but to the
overstraining of his waiters' energy and
the conseauent dissatisfaction of the unfed
fair ones. He says afternoon teas usually
last about two hours, and that every lady
comes late, say nearer 4 o'clock than 3.
Then they all appear in together, and ex
pect to be served with the regulation two
courses in about five minutes in a crowded
drawing room; for he says no matter how
bijou the hostess' house may be she rarely
ever will consent to calling her second
floor into requisition. The same gen
tleman says, moreover, that the
old fashion of having a cup
of tea and a slice of bread and butter was
br far the more preferable to the present
plan of croquettes, bouillon and ices. He
would suggest bouillon and an ice as suf
ficient for any woman who doesn't earn her
bread and butter by attending afternoon
teas. This would require only one serving
aud eoald be done in one-half the time.
The difference in the caterer's pocket, too,
he thinks would be more iharcounterbal
anced by the many more people who would
entertain in the afternoon if elaborate
courses were done away with.
Preparations are almost completed for
the annual reception of Tancred Oommand
ery, 2To. 48, K. T. in the Alvin Theater.
The scale on which affairs have been
arranged is much more elaborate than here
tofore. Tor instance, owing to the feeling
that there was no more suitable nor agree
able place in Pittsburg for the reception
than the Alvin Theater, the committee with
a pluck that is commendable bought out the
visiting company for Tuesday evening,
which is tne evening of the reception. They
have also a bridge built across the narrow
lane, which separates the theater from the
Hotel Bchlosser, where supper Is
to be servei This will be
covered and having an entrance
to the dining floor of the hotel, the matter
of supper will be as easy of access as though
in the same building and much more pleas
ant, since everything pertaining to the cul
inary department will be as if miles away.
Guests will be received at the main en
trance of the theater by the committee, who
will personally look after the comfort of
everv one with the same care as if it was a
house function and every visitor a personal
friend. It is not too much to say that the
reception will undoubtedly be one of the
pleasante st affairs that it has been the priv
ilege of Pittsburgers to see. The complete
committees, including the officers, are as

under its auspices) .as the subject
for Monday evening. "We have chosen."
writes the lady, "her lecture on Yucatan
because it is one of the most interesting
States of Mexico; full of old temples,
palaces and the ruins of once grand cities.
One peculiar feature of this country is the
absence of rivers on the surface of the land;
but it is extensively undermined by sub
terranean streams of water, which find their
way to basins situated in caverns. These
caverns are always cool. Yucatan has been
for ages exempt from earthquakes, while
all the surrounding countries are often con
vulsed. A theory has been advanced that
Yucatan's immunity from quakes is owing
to the presence of the caverns containing
the wells; as they serve as outlets for the
gases that disturb the earth's strata."

The twenty-sixth annual encampment of
the Department of Pennsylvania will hold
its sessions in the Opera House next
Wednesday and Thursday, February 2i and
25. It bids fair to be the largest encamp
ment in the history of the Department, and
will be composed of prominent men from all
sections of the State.
The officers to be elected will doubtless be
General John P. Taylor, of Post 176, Lewis
town, Department Commander; W. O. Bus
sell, of Post 151. Pittsburg, Senior Vice Com
mander, and J. K. Swoyer, of Post 1,
Philadelphia, Junior Vice Commander.
There may be considerable discussion over
the action of the Board of Manageisof the
Soldiers' Home at Erie in retaining SO per
cent of the pensions of the inmates. On this
subject there is considerable difference of
opinion. No doubt there will be some
strong arguments from both sides.
A pretty appearance will be presented by
the Opera Houe during the Encampment.
The interior will be decorated with the post
colors, corps badges, markers, etc., bunting,
flowers and plants. Post 41's and 157's
firing sqnads will act as guards and
have charge of the Opera House
dnring the sessions of the Encampment.
All the lower part of the house parquet and
paiquet circle will be reserved forthedele
gates. To gain admittance to this part of
the house delegates must wear the regular
delegate-badge. Other comrades not officers
or delegates will be admitted to the balcon
ies on presenting themselves with their G.
A. E. badge on and giving the pass word.

Many of the visitors will arrive to-morrow
but a largo number will come Tuesday and
Wednesday. Among those who will arrive

voices, and others, will furnish the musical
part. One or more elocutionists will recite.
A rich treat can be offered to all who attend
either meeting. As the principal speakers
will address both campflres, there will be no
necessity or the people of Allegheny com
ing to Pittsburg, or vice versa. Doubtless
both halls will be crowded.
Banquet at Old City Ball.
On Thnrsdav evenini? the citizens of Pitt.
burg, with Hon. H. L Gourley, the Mayor, '
presiding, win tenuer a Danquec to tne
members of the encampment. It will be in
Old City Ball, around which cluster so
many memories of the dark days of the Be
bellion. The Woman's Christian Temper
ance Alliance had engaged Old City Hall
for Thursday evening. Ex-Adjutant Gen
eral Hastings was to have delivered a
lecture on the Johnstown flood. Although
the ladies bad already been put to consider
able expense for printing and other things,
they had no sooner heard that the hall was
needed tor the Grand Army than they re
linquished their claim. Their generosity
and" courtesy will be rewarded when the
lecture takes place. It was postponed till
tho evening of March 18.
It is hoped to have present at the banquet
some able speakers to respond to the toasts.
Among those invited to speak are Congress
men Dalzeil and Stone, Colonel Stew
art, John H. Bicketson, Colonel E.
A. Montooth and General P. S. Go
bin. The decorations in Old City
Hall will be very fine. They will be under
the direction of Mr. Frank J. Torrence, of
the Citizens' Committee andMajor Lambert,
Plants, flags, bunting, etc., will transform
the place into a bower of beauty. The menu
will be an exceptionally fine one. The tables
will be set longwise in the hall, with the ex
ception or the speakers table. This will
probably be placed on the platfbrm which
will afford a chance to all present to see and
Quarters for the Visitor.
The Hotel Committee, of which Comrade
O. M. Head is the untiring chairman, has
been busy for weoks providing accommoda
tions in advance for those who made appli
cation. This matter is well in hand, and all
have been provided for who have applied
One of the features in connection with the
encampment will be an exemplification of
the unwritten work of the order. A provis
ional post will be organized for the purpose
with comrades from different parts of the
State. This will doubtless attract much at
tention riom those who are desirous of per
lectinir themselves in this work. The errnm-
pliflcation will in all probability take place
in Post 157's hall on Thursday evening.
Commander John D. McFarland of Post 2,
in general orders directs the members to as

form, buff gloves, at 8 o'clock Wednesday
morning, to escort the Department Com
mander, his staff and the representatives to

other posts to join Post 3 bn this occasion.
He says further: "The Commander specially
requests that every comrade report lor duty;
that the lull strength of the Post be pre
sented on this occasion, and demonstrate
our appreciation of the distinguished honor
conferred upon the Post. Notice has been
received that the Inspector and Assistant
Quartermaster General of the Department

businessmen to decoiate their places of

questing every comrade or the Grand Army
to display the national flag from his resi

S, Fourth avenue, at 9 o'clock Wednes
day morning to escort Post 3 to tho
Sevonth Avenue Hotel. The committee will
meet at the Pension Office at o'clock to
morrow afternoon to put the finishing
touches on tho arrangements.
A Very Unique G. A. K. Badge.
One of the most interesting things con
nected with the various encampments is the
badge. Some unique designs are often
turned out, but it can beconfldentlyclalmed
that the Allegheny County Committee has
outdone them all lor the Twenty-sixth De
partment Encampment of Pennsylvania,
As much as the emblom will be appreciated
by comrades In this section, it will be
tenfold more interesting to those who
come from the north, western, central and
eastern portions of the State. The badge is
representative of the industries of Pitts
burg. The pin piece Is formed of bronzed
steel, and has the word "Delegate" in bold
letters. From this hangs a satin faced silk
ribbon, finished at the bottom with gilt
fringe Attaohed to the ribbon are & cut
glass keystone and Grand Army star. They
are finely polished and finished. On the
keystone is the inscription: "28th Annual
encampment uepi, ra. ritMonrg, 1833."
.This la put on by the process known m
'sand, blast," which Teaves the letters or de
.sign finely frosted. But' the star-is more at
tractive than tho keystone. In the oenter is
a good profile or Department Commander
Boyer blown in by the sand blast process.
Around the corners are the abbreviation
Jor "Commander Department Pennsylvania
189L" Altogether It Is a most handsome and
unique affair. It is the design of Comrade
W. O. Eusseli, of Post 15L
