THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, SUNDAY, MARCH 26, 1893.
n On of the latest fancies for tha young women is to have a souvenir corner. One corner of the boudoir is chosen and tacked to the 'wall are all sorts of articles. There is a programme book, where theater, con cert and ball programmes are hnng. An Alpine crook or tr. o are crossed near the center, a Mexican sombrero surmounts the whole, gcrtnan favors roa&e a border, and spoons from all parts of the "world are made in fan shapes or circles against a bit of colored satin or velvet. Some take wide bands of satin ribbon, and sew the things securely. Loops at either end and books in the wall, allow taking the things down for a dusting without much trouble. One young woman has a violin corner, bhe is a mild violin crank, and in this tpaco site has instruments of all sizes, from the one in ordinary use down to the toy ailairs that are given as favors. With . them are pictures of all the famous violin ists. Any addition to the violin corner gives a pleasure that can scarcely be ex perienced in any other way. Beside the spoon craze the souvenir corner will be a rival. Brides and grooms have experiences be sides which most other matters pale into utter insignificance. Not very long ago a bride and groom took a trip, as most brides and Brooms do. While they were away a friend who knew them both happened to be in the same city ana concluded to call. The card was sent to the room, and the bride, not being quite ready to desoend to the parlor, asked the groom to go down and she would follow, in a moment or two. When the groom left the room he inadvertently locked the door, as had -always been his ccstom in days of bachelorhood. When she was ready she could not get out. She was astonished fyr a moment. Then she rang for a bell boy. One came, and she told him to get the chambermaid. He was gone so long that she rang again and another boy came. She made known her wants. Then the first boy came baok and the two bad a long conference in the hall wonder ing what the husband had locked his wife ' in the room for. She finally appealed to, them to get the chambermaid, and, after what seemed ages of waiting, she came and unlocked the door. There in the hall stood ' the maid and the two boys, and tbey eyed her closely. She knew what the boys thought; probably they had been locked in themselves at some period of their ex istence, though not accidentally. Expla nations were made in the parlor, but to this day the young wife feels she would like to make some satisfactory arrangement in her mind, so that it would not trouble her to think. that those awful three did not be lieve the locking was intentional.

Conversation on "Kights and Kesponsibilities of Labor Unions' was led by Mrs. Lncret'a Mc Dowell. After tbe regular programme of tbe day the meeting became social. The guests were invited by the hostess to the dining room, where flowers and exquis ite decorations presented a pleasing scene. Daintily painted souvenir cards had been presented eaoh lady, and she found her place at table by the distinguish ing color on her card. Mrs. Ella McCrea gracefully presided as toast mistress. Mrs. Caroline M. Wright responded to the toast "Club of the Past" in a short history of the olub, recalling many pleasing incidents; "Club of the Present." by Mrs. Elizabeth C. Marmon, who very happily depicted the restless eagerness of the nineteenth cen tury woman in her pursuit of knowledge and fame. She asks "Why do we live with' such hurry and waste of lifer We take the old adage "A switch in time eaves nine.'1 and resolve it into a thousand stitches to-day to save nine to-morrow. "Club of the Future" was responded to by Mrs. L. E. McDowell, in which was pre dicted a degree of culture quite appalling to the average woman. Mrs. Hannah Fur ness responded- to "Gentlemen. God Bless Them," and espoused tho cause of the op posite sex right royally. With many ex pressions of pleasure and thanks to tho charming hostess the club adjourned, to meet with Mrs. Marmon, on North Dela ware street, April 14. The Katharine Merrill Club met yester day afternoon with Mrs. John L. Grilliths, on North Tennessee street The guest of honor was Miss Evaleen Stein, of Lafay ette, who is known far and near as a writer of exquisite poetry Tbe members and guests were introduced to Miss Stein by Mr. Griffiths, Mrs. Grace Julian Clark, president of tho club, and Miss Katharine Merrill. Ices were served by members of tbe club. Miss Shipp and Miss Col if an presiding at tha table. The guests were asked to bo seated in tho south room, and Miaa Stein recited ono of nor poems, a description of a mist rising over the Kankakee marshes, a piece of word painting as delicately and purely given ascould be expressed. After a piano selection Mrls Stein read a paper on Mary E. Wilkins, the New England writer. Mary Wilkins was carefully reviewed in the severul publications of short stories, her novel "Jane Field," tho two children's stories and the one play, and was pro nounced one of the best writers of the modern school: ono possessed of imagina tion and a faouliy of expression and ohar acte rdrawing which are unique. Tbe paper as a literary effort was admirable, and its arrangement of criticism and selection whs happily interesting. Followiug the paper there was a general conversation on Miss Wilkins's work and New Englandiife and character. Miss Mer rill. Mrs. Margaret Marshall. Mrs. J. If. Hussey. Mrs. Cleland, Mrs. Ninn Merrill, Mrs. Allen Fletcher and others participat ing. Miss Stein then recited others of her poems.
