BANQUETS AMONG FLOWERS.
President and Guests at Brilliant
Board.-Sunken Garden Feature
of Artistic Decorations.
:Charleston, Nov. 5.-The Taft din
ner tonight at the Charleston hotel
was probably the most elaborate and
splendidly gotten up affair that has
been given in Charleston, surpassing
the many big dinners of the past,
hieh is saying much. The dinner
as served in the big dining hall
ose walls were tastefully draped
ih national flags and festooned with
unning greens. The sideboards
were rich in their polished mirrors
and bright glassware, showing to ad
vantage the beautifully frescoed ceil
ing of the hall. The place was bril
It was, however, the table arrange
ments whtise artistic decorations won
the admiration of the banqueters as
they entered the hall to the strains
of music by an orchestra. The ta
bles were arra.nged somewha;t in the
form of the lines of an inverted urn
or perhaps it may be called a sort
of "V'' shape. In the hollow square
was a lovely sunken garden creation.
A tiny fountain sent forth a fine
spray, falling over several colored
globes, while in the top glass could
be seen small fish swimming about.
The spray added a richness to the
green foliage, further heightened by
the small incandescent lamps skirting
the bottom of the fountain and about
were the fine palms and ferns, soften
ing the effect of the electrical dis
Roses ani Palms.
The corners of the room were
adorned with beautiful palms and the
odor of the handsome roses mingled
with white and pink carnations on
the table were added evidence of the
garden effect to all entering the din
The table arrangement provided
for the banqueters, to face the dis
tingiished guest of the evening. He
bad a position in the centre of what
might be called the base of the urn,
overlooking the garden. Covers
were laid for about 200 diners. An
exeellent card system of sitting the
banqueters was observed. In accor
dance with the expressed wish of the
president,,Chairman Lapham arrang
ed his plans to have the dinner comn
.paratively short of duration and the
-speech of the president with the brief
introductory of Mayor Rhett was the
only oratory. The menu was arrang
ed with a view of excellence in qual-1
*ity rather than any protraction of
the dinner by too many dishes. The
2nenu was served in fine style and in-*

Almost every sentence of Mr.
Taft's speech at the banquet was in-~
terrupted withi applause. H.is -re
marks were filled w'.th local allusions.
He reminded the banqueters that this
was his sixth visit to Charleston and
that in coming- here his reception was
not simply that of another hospitable
Southern city, but that this was l.ike
.coming home, where he already had
friends who knew him and whom ne
knew. He repeated his belief that
Charleston is the best of all ports
from which to embark for Panama,
revived entertainingly his experien
ees on his present tour of the coun
try. and paid a high tribute to Con-*
gressman Legare of this city.
In closing, Mr. Taft said:
"I repeat that in -coming to Char'
leston I have felt that i was corring'
home. and not simply to another of
the d?elightful cities of the South with
its magnificent traditions, with i'tis
enormous possibilities and with it-s
intense loyalty. I hope to come here
again as soon as I can and I hope that
Charlet'on, w-ill retain all her attre
tiveness, tht she will lose none of
thowse residences ar a those other
tructures that make her unique
throughout the country, that she will
continue to have that press which
makes each paper so interesting in
discussing the other and that all the
charaeters which go to make up your
interesting society may remain here
and live forever ''
The menu cards were simple in de
sign, consisting of two white cards
held together with white. red and
bluve ribbons. the top card bearing the
seal of the city in gold and the in
scription, briefly reciting the charac
ler of the occasion and date engrav
ed. The menu was also engraved.

.ADVICE TO WOMEN.
A Message from a Famous Beauty
SpecialMt to Women Lacking
in Energy and Vitality.
Thousands of women vainly at
tempt to improve their complexions
and to remove blackheads, crows'
feet and other blemishes, through the
use of cosmetics. This -treatment
fails because the trouble lies far
deeper than the skin. They are suf
fering from impure and impoverished
blood. This condition is in many
cases due to a catarrhal condition of
the whole system whieh finds its ex
pression in sall.w, nor Idy complex

ness of the sysvem, sa perhaps most
plainly in the weeping of mucous
membranes that is commonly called

prperly speaking. Catarrh. Banish
this eatarrh, and the complexion will

perfect health. and perfect health for'
women can only be obtained through
one certain treatment-that which

Mine. Swift. New York, the famous
beauty specialist known throughout
the world and an accepted authority
on all relating thereto, states that the
one positive and permanent relief
for eatarrh is Rexall MuculTone.
Here is her letter:
"I can strongly endorse the claims
made for Rexall Mucu-Tone as a cure
for systematic catarrl.. Its tonic ef
