SOCIETY MOURNS HER LOSS
The Effect of Mrs. JIcKinley's Deatli
on the Social Season.
ilnny of tlio Cnttuuuiry Fuuc'tioii-s
Already I'oxtJioned Clmt About
The death of Mrs. McKlulcy -will accent
the frocial quiet vrliich has been bhserved
by the President's official family ever
hincc the liiue-5s of his mother ivas an
nounced. So far, of courbe, no clianges
in the social program hae been discussed,
but sympathy for the President in his
berea ement has madeltselfso felt through
every class in Washington that there can
be 110 doubt that all those entertainers who
can possibly do so will postpone their
festivities until a later date. Many limi
tations have already been withdrawn for
the week, o that there Is little on the
social calendar, with tho exception of
coming out teas, the Tour opera nights, and
the ball to be given Thursday by the ladies
of the Garfield Hospital Board.
Grand opera in "Washington is always a
social as well as a musical event. The box
list for the present teasju makes the usual
brilliant showing, among those who ha e
taken boxes being Vice President and
Airs- Hobart, Mrs. Westinghouse, Mr. and
Mrs. Boardman, Mrs. Richard Clover, Sen
ator and Mrs. Wetmore, Mr. and Mrs. Stil
son Ilutchinsi Mrs. Warder, Mr. and Mrs,
Lfiter, Mr. and Mrs. Henry May, Hon., 7. B.
Henderson, Representative Simpkins, Mrs.
A. C. Williams, Miss Gale and Capt. Bron-ston.
The Misses Merrick, who have been spend
ing the autumn at Elllcott City, have re
turned to their town residence for the winter.
The Christmasf campaign openH today,
and the reign ot the bundle begins- Eery
package you see in the arms of a man or
a woman these days, is a sermon and the
text is "Peace and good will." For fifty
weeks in the year the bundle is a pariah
to be scorned by fashionable women and
dodged by busy men- It is a browfi
abomination to be borne ouly by express
men and common folks, and the unfortunate
society girl forced by the exigencies of
fate to carry home, say her own slippers,
scurries along a by-streeb as if ashamed
to be seen by her friends as a thief
vould have been if he had stolen the things
and was afraid of the big man in blue.
But these two wee"ks Christmas claims
as its very own. It has cast its enchant
ment on the holly wreath and a glamor
oer tho parcel. It has given merry sniile3
and jovial grins to the squirming masses
ot shoppers, who, from now till Christmas
Eve, will pack the stores from doors to
counters, and, with its gracious wand, it
has touched the heart ot human nature
and made the whole world akin, and that
is why society will begin to Carry bundles

The Famous Singer 'Will Bo Ileard
in Giiuid Onei'it Tonight.
Madame Melba, the distinguished Aus
tralian prima donna, who will sing the role
of Violetta in Verdi's "Trnviata" at the
Lafayette toutght, and thus open the grand
opera season in the nation's capital, has
arrived in the city. She has engaged asuite
or rooms at the Shorcham, and Is accom
panied by her sister, Miss Mitchell, of
She visited several friends yesterday
and spent the afternoon in driving about
Madame Melba has iccentiy received a
gold medal, presented her by the town
of Beigamo, Italy. On her return from
Italy she made her first concert tour in
England and Scotland. She sang in four
teen concerts in various cities in three
weeks, closing at Brighton the- night be
foie she sailed for Ameilca.
The advent of this distinguished singer
is a noteworthy cent in any season of
opera. The favorite pupil of the famous
Marches), she mndo her debut at Brussels
in 1889 as Gilda, in "Rigoletto." Her
shoit career has been an unbroken series
of successes, and Paris, London, St. Peters
burg, Milan, and New York have all paid
tribute to her lovely voice and marvelous
Not more than once in a generation does
such a singer appear, and tho time will
doubtless come when those who hear her
tonight will describe to their children the
glorious voice of Melba. The role ot
Violetta, with its delightful music and
fine dramatic effect, is one in which
Madame Melba appears to great advan
tage, and it Is safe to say that none ot
the great singers of the pnst or present
have equaled her in this part.
