picture of luxury aud elegance such as is
seldom seen In a theater. Some exqu.slte
tolleta are also promised. the
young ladles appearing In full party
dress and the centlemen in evening
clothes. As the title et the operetta indi
cates, the events hinge about a reception
given in a fashionable home on New Year's
day. "Mrs. Gushington" is an ambitious
society leader ef wealth and prominence,
and would be extremely happy were it not
fer "Marie." the colored serving maid, or
the Topsy type, who keeps her In constant
mental anguish. "Marie" Is not only im
polite but imp-o'-darkness, and
her antics and drollery constitute much
ef the comedy elmeut of the performance.
"Belle Gushington" is a social ihlmUintt
on this occasion, and is gotten up with ap
propriate recaraiessness. oae is greatly in
love with "Charlie Jones," and he with
her. See Is assisted la receiving by Flora,
Grace and Clara, and Cthe four indulge
in a great deal ef just such cirltn-girlisu-ness
as one can see in evry day life.
"Charlie Jones" sends Bell an elegant
bouquet containing a note proposing
for her hand and heart The
note is brought to the Guhington mansion
by "Smithers, a florists assistant, who Is
a "cad, don t you know, but who Is mis
taken for an English swell of eccentric
manners. He Is at erst surprised bj the
cordiality of his reception, but mistakes
tba attention shown him to be a tribute to
his good looks and mental graces, and ac
cepts the situation of a heart disorgan-

helps himself to the refreshments
very liberally and makes a pronounced
impression. "Jack.'"Harrj"and "Walter,"

quite too perfectly lovely creature.also call,
and the ensuing dialogue is bright. In the
second act "Belle" Is disconsolate because
"Charlie Jones" hasn't called, and take
herself tearfully away. Charlie enters
soon after and bewails his unhappy fate
because Belle has ignored his flowers and
his proposal. "Smithers" enters, gives him
self away as a nobody, explana
tions aad reconciliations ensue, and the
operetta ends happtlyfand melodiously. It
