MISS WALLACE'S DEBUT
National Guard Kail the Scene of
a Brilliant Social Gath
WAS AN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS.
The Wealth, Culture and Beauty of
San Francisco Assemble to
Dance and Feast.
Judge and Mrs. William T. Wallace
opened the dancing season with their ball
last evening given in honor of their daugh
ter, Miss Romie Wallace, at National
Guard Hall, 815 Ellis street, near Van
Ness avenue, and it was, as all other func
tions given by them, a splendid social and
artistic success. There were gathered the
intelligence, the wealth and the beauty of
San Francisco, and it is doubtful if, in all
the social history of San Francisco, there
has ever been held an event of a similar
kind, the appointments, the surroundings
and the personnel of which blended and
harmonized so well and so happily, insur
iug entire and unqualified success.
For weeks not only the debutante, but i
the married and older women as well, have '
been looking forward to this affair as one ;
of great pleasure and unusual interest.
The first ball of the season 13 the one at
which many young women make their
debut, and many a beautiful gown was j
worn for the first time last evening.
As the hour of 10 o'clock approached,
the neighborhood of Van Ness avenue and
Eilis street for blocks was a mass of fash- '
ionable vehicles not to mention the crowd
of onlookers who stood near the entrance
and pressed to the awning that reached
from the street to the door, eager to catch
a sight of those going to the hall.
"Stand aside!" was heard every few
minutes from the policemen who guarded
the entrance as some over-anxious-to-sec
urchin came too close to the carriage
doors. Inside the hail all was animation
and expectancy. Electric lights, shaded
by tinted pink globes gave asoft and be
coming clow to all the rooms. Polite
attendants showed the ladies to their
dressing-rooms, and the men were shown
to theirs the same way. From evening
■wraps to full ball costume was the work of
a few moments, when entrance to the ball
room was made. There the scene was a
beautiful one. Exquisite gowns and
jewels were seen to the best advantage
under pink lights that illuminated the

Majesty" and "Prince Ananias," lately
played at the Columbia Theater by the
ever popular Bostonians, and selections
from "Our Shop Girls" and other popular
plays now running in the East.
Plants were also placed along the sides
and corners of the room, and small ever
green trees, with palms and other greenery,
formed two lines on the stairway leading
to the ballroom, supper- rooms and gallery.
The rest of the building was thrown open
to the guests, the supper-room being es
pecially attractive, with its furnishings of
gold and blue drapery and hanging bas
kets of ferns. Before the ball began the
ballroom was in comparative darkness,
only a few of the electric lights burning.
Mr. and Mrs. Sprapue and Judge Wal
lace received with the debutante in the
center of the hall. Miss fSprague wore a
handsome Doucet gown, heavily embroid
ered with pearls, and Miss Cooper was in
white moire tulle, elbow sleeves with long
white gloves. The hall, an attractive one,
had been made particularly so by the skilled
handiwork of the florist, and the scene,
when filled with handsomely attired ladies
and their escorts, was a brilliant one. The
stage was a perfect mass of ferns and
chrysanthemums of varied hues. In front,
and dependent from the high ceiling was
a canopy of heavy festoons of smilax, and
in the center was a very large basket of
pink chrysanthemums* from which
dropped graceful sprays of smilax.
The entire gallery '.was a massof ferns,
among which were several cozy bowers,
which were used by the dancers and spec
tators as Jounging-piaces during the even
ing. The stationary seats of the hall were
folded up, and along the sides were
banks of ferns and potted plants.
Easy -chairs were placed in front for the
use of the dancers and on-lookers. Pen
dent from the front of the gallery were
Jarge baskets of chrysanthemums, grad
uated from the dark red in the center to
the pale hues at the ends.
The reception-rooms* of the hall were
draped with smilax and roses, and several
large parlor lamps with bright-colored
shades perfected the scene.
Clasping ncr neck was a string of pearls.
Supper was announced at midnight and
was served in the lower haii, which was
most beautifully decorated, and the ar
rangements were so perfect that all the
guests were comfortably seated at the tete
a-tete tabies. Nothing could be suggested
in the matter of decorations. The large
rooms were draped in gauze of light colors
and bunches of ferns and chrysanthemums
finished the adornments. The repast was
wan in keeping with all the other details,
as will be seen from a perusal of the menu,
which was as follows:
California Oysters, Half-Shell.
Sandwiches a la i'ocahontas.
Tlmbal of Eerevissos. Frogs ala roulette.
Terrapin a. la Maryland.
Snipe en Canope. l'resh Mushrooms.
Breast of Teal Duck. Celerj Salad.
Pudding a la Nessehode.
Cakes. Soiree Cakes.
Marron Glace. Fruit Glace.
An hour was spent at the supper table,
and then the guests returned to the main
hall, where the festivities were continued
with unabated interest until after '1
o'clock, when adieus were said, and the
waiting carriages conveyed the tired but
happy participants to their respective

grand march, entirely novel, was led by W. W.

Judge Campbell had little trouble yester
