Outlook for Ncs WciL rernoiinl
The midweek or Jnnunrv wan brought
to a hospitable close last night by a con
spicuous number of dinners at which
both hosts anil guests were of official and
social prominence in the Washington
world
The President and Jlrs McKInley were
entertained at dinner last nlRht by the
Secretary of War and Mrs Hoot The
company invited to meet the distinguished
quests were the Secretary of State and
Mrs Hay the Secretary of the Treasury
and Jlrs Oaie the Postmaster General
and Irs Smith the Attorney General
the Secretary of the Navy the Secretary
of the Interior and Mrs Hitchcock the
Secretary of Vgrlculttre and Miss Wilson
Senator and Mrs McMillan Hcpresentn
tlvc and Mrs Hltt Mrs Frederick Dent
Grant Miss Phelps Miss Knot and Gen
eral Corbln The floral decorations of the
table were bridesmaid roses while lilacs
and farleyensc ferns
Senator and Mrs KIKlns who have been
chief among the entertainers of the week
were again hosts at a dinner last night
when their guests were the Speaker ami
Mrs Henderson Senator and Mrs Thurs
ton Senator and Mis Scott Representa
tive and Mrs Dovenor Representative

One of the most important demands on
the time of a Foelety woman is tho neces
sity of making calls so many days in the
week and of remaining at home some one
special afternoon to receive them It is
what the Philistine would call n big con
tract but not an Impossible one if each
hostess on her at home day would rec
ognize the value of her callers time
Those who receive in their own homes
of course are always graciously ready and
waiting to welcome and speed their gueBts
A footman whisks open the door the In
stant a visitor reaches It There 13 a
whiff of warm rose scented air a glim
mer of daintily shaded lights a minutes
chat a sip of tea and that Is one call
finished
If the next visit happens to be mado at
one of thi large hotels or apartment houses
of the West End the experience gained
Is likely to furnish material for what Mr
Kipling would call quite another story In
commenting on her own individual trials
and those of her sister sufferers ono
woman prominent in official circles bad
cnmcthlng to say like this
I recognize my social obligations and
try to fulfil them but unless a cbango for
the better happens it Is useless to hope to
do justice to ray visiting list I hao a
great many calls to make during the sea
son and If j on arc an expert at figures joj
can reckon up how little time I have to li
It In I really enjoy my house-to-house
flitting and come home with my mind re
freshed from the pleasant incidents cf tho
afternoon but when I go to pay calls at
hotels and apartment houses I must siy
that It does not add to my happiness to
have to wait and keep en waiting until I
And out whether or not tho lady I have
called on is at home Here is the usual
programme of course there are always ex
ceptions Suppose I go to call upon sy
Mrs Blank wife of the Senator froji
Itlanktown I give my card to the man at
the door Yho hands it to the clerk at tho
detk who docrnt know whether or not
Mr Blank Is receiving but v ill send
at once and see The card Is turned over
i an attache who dleappeats up the stairs
As he is not entitled to the privileges of
the elevator I have to wait that much
longer for his return Sometimes my
various Mrs Blanks are at home some
times they are not but In cither case I
have lost so much time I cent up cards
last neck to three ladles living lu the same
hotel It took Just eighteen minutes for
nm to find that all of them were making
calls I hope they had better luck than I
It Is not In the least the fault of tho man
agers of the hotels and as I want lo be
charitable I wont go so far as to
say that it is a fault on the part of the
ladles by the name of Blank
What I Insist upon thinking however
Is that It would be very much Ix tter for
their callers if they would notify the clerk
In the office whether or not they intended
io be cut or at borne
