were Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Ogden s "faggot' parties Tuesday and Wed

oriental luxury that characterized the arrangements. Candle light,
subdued enough to lend a witching affect, was substituted for gas,
and the uncertain glow from the faggots, piled on from time to time
contributed to the general wierd ensemble. All chairs were re
moved from tho reception rooms, and their places were taken by di
vans and couches skirting all sides of the rooms., These were sup
plied with innumerable cushions, the whole making an irresistible
combination of comfort and ease. There was in keeping with the
surroundings, an oriental freedom as to the usual conventions. Pipes,
cigars and cigarettes were freely offered to the gentlemen, privileges
that were quite freely taken advantage of, and at appropriate inter
vals punch was served. Tho feature of the entertainments was that
each guest was called upon to relate a story, the narrator
being entitled to one faggot, placed in the
embers for his especial .benefit. All kinds of stories were
tola and much amusement was afforded by this ingen
ious feature. On Tuesday evening Mrs. A. S. Raymond won the
prize, a volume of the Prince of India, for an original poem, having
for its subject the faggot party. Wednesday evening, at the second
faggot party, the prize, a handsome edition of "Trilby,'' was won by
