NEW THINGS AT TABLE.
WHAT WILL BE THE MODE THIS SEA
SON DINNERS GIVEN AND ARRAN
Diuners are gradually coming to
divide time and attention with
weddings. There were several dur
ing the week, and, although none
were in themselves of great mo
ment, yet taken all together they
made a very agreeable diversion.
There is an apparent tendency in
dinners this season to do away al
together with heavy viands, when
ladies are among the company.
Substantial roasts and saddles of
mutton have given way to fillets
about as big round as a watch case
with a trifle of artichoke of bean
aise. The purpose is to have every
thing so frail that the knife may be
dispensed with, and women be en
abled to provide themselves plenti
fully with a fork aud without the
necessity, if impulse move, of re
moving their gloves. Flowers are
more used than ever, and are likely
to be all winter. Three women,
whose iufluence ordinarily is force
ful iu setting the modes in society,
undertook to array themselves
against the use of flowers as dinner-table
They gave an elaborate luncheon,
and forbade the use of a single rose
upon or about the table. They ex
perienced so much difficulty, how
ever, in procuring substitutes of
even half the decorative beauty
that flowers possess that they aban
doned the fight, and, at a dinner
given by one of them the other
night, all precedent in the lavish
use of roses was surpassed. The
stand to make now is against the
vulgar over-doing of a very pretty
idea. China and fine glass more
than hold their own in popular fa
vor and one sees porcelain in town
that would be prized in the home
of a Howard. Decorations are, and
apparently, if one may judge by
what is already to be seen, will
coutinue to be, pronounced in col
ors, red and other bright, warm
tints prevailing. No hue predomi
nates, however, to the exclusion of
What were called yellow dinners
at Bar Harbor are already decided
ly passe. They never indeed were
much in favor except with social
sensationalists, aud they could not
last it for no other reason than the
one that only one complexion in a
thousand could stand agaiust them.
For an Autumnal kink the many
hued leaves of Fall are very pretty
as decoratious aud are a good deal
used. They may be preserved after
gathering for two weeks or more
by keeping them in cold water.
Kich red ivy has also been used
with great effect, and will probab
ly come into decided favor for big
occasious. But ivy grows so slowly
that the generous use of it meaus
great expense. Philadelphia

The debate at the Israel C. M. E.
Literary on Monday evening last,
was full of lively interest. The dis
cussious were ably handled, and
each speaker, acted as though he
had come with fitty preparations
for the purpose;
