11 HOME-COMING OF FOLKS SOCIETY I1EUI39 TO PREPARE FOR T1E AUTL'SIX IVCDDI.VGS. Some Innovations In This Important Function Expected Tula Scanon Movements of Prominent People. , The nocial life here has been remarkably quiet, but there have been hints of engage ments that have been satisfactorily pro gressing during the summer, and lately wed ding Invitations have been Hying about. There Is no social subject of more general Interest than the engagement and marriage of the young people of a place, and with the approach of autumn the conversation re garding the affairs Increases. Quite a num ber of young ladles are going to leave the city, and these, as a rule, are the ones who have remained at home and kept them selves busy with the necessary prepara tions for a September or October wedding. It Is not safe to draw the conclusion that all the young ladles who have not left town are engaged, nor that all who have taken trips away are not. Prospective brides who have been to the resorts, particularly near New York and Boston, have Inquired Into the latest styles, not only for their trous seaux, but for all the little detail which are a part of the preparation natural to launching on the sea of matrimony. The design and shape ef the wedding invita tions have had a radical change from last autumn, so Is the manner of conducting the affair. There may be expected some novelties in the latter, as the brides-to-be have heard of ways and means of which thosa who are not on the lookout for such things have not as yet even dreamed. With the close of August most people who have been loitering at the summer resorts turn their faces homeward. While many Indianapolis people have remained at home during the hot months, there have been ever so many away. Scores have found their recreation wlthl l the borders of the State, others have gore to Michigan and Wisconsin, and the few have opened their purses for the hotel keeper further off. There is always a peculiar feeling to the homecomer. It Is generally expected that friends will bid them welcome. It never occurs to one who l.'ns not kept an account of those who have been away that there are may be others who have exp ri enced a release from the eight or nine months of city life, and have also been away, and are expecting a wt'eome In turn. A safe way to cover the situation Is to announce the recent return, and then If the one addressed has also been uway, there are no feelings of slight on eUher Bide. A well-known gentleman of this city who has a charming family has been playing the part of a summer widower for several weeks. It has been his custom, since his wife and daughter went away, to Invite in a few friends each Sunday morning to breakfast. He has taken delight in ar ranging the feasts, and has prided him self on his ability as a caterer. Last Sun day morning the; party consisted of his .married daughter and her husband and a select few friends, and they were all prompt In arriving at the appointed hour, 9 o'clock. The cook does not sleep at the house, and has been " remarkably prompt all summer In having breakfasts exactly on time. The cook did not come Sunday morning, and the host, who had made out a specially tempting bill of fare, had to take his company to one of the hotels, where, at 10 o'clock, the party, which, by this time w.ere ravenously hun gry, was served. "In arranging the table for a mu.lcal luncheon." writes Mrs. Garrett Webster in August Ladles' Home Journal, "the origin of the luncheon must be kept as prom inently as possible before the participants. "The centerpiece of flowers should be in the shap of a musical Instrument, a man dolin, violin, banjo or tambourine, making an excellent model for Imitation In wire, and when lined with mess and filled with fragrant blossoms is itself a little sym phony. At each place there may be, in addition to the sliver glass and china re quired for serving, small paper bonbon boxes In the shape of toy drums, whistles, trumpets or banjos, filled with candies. ThI luncheon may be made particular ly seasonable by having all the decora tions suggest the time ot midsumnvr. IJlack-eyed Susans, as the ox-eyed daisies are sometimes called, would be suitable flowers for use, as their prototype Is the heroine of a musical ballad. If these are used the candies served should be butter cups and orange cocoanut bonbons. "The cakes should be flavored with or ange and covered with orange Icing, and the ices served In the shape of an orange mold with a rose of the gelatin accompa nying." Within the past few years it has come to be an unspoken degree of fashion that a loud voice apparently the louder the better should be a part of the equipment of th society leader. She must have an open, bold stare, and tones that are dominant and assertive. She has altogether forgotten the low voice tnost excellent In a weman," and is at present to be heard on countless hotel pi azzas and cottage grounds shrieking nnd screaming as. In "Annie Kinburn." Howells declares that all American women are prone to do. V '. Certainly the young -girl Is. " It. is a dis tressing and rathertdl5cp-nc,cftlng thing to be obliged to overhear" her confidences re lated at the top of her Tung and the end-of-the-century girl has very healthy lungs about what "he said." and what "I said to him." No matter how "pretty be haved." according to the strictest rules of etiquette, a modern woman may be, she seldom has a.' mild voice or speaks in low, sweet tone. Exchange. The chatelaine buckle, though a very useful article, Is sometimes a source of miich perplexity to the girl who wears It. Jutt which one of the numerous toilet accessories it is the most necessary to have constantly at hand In a hard question for her to settle. There is her smelling salts, her nail file, engagement pad, silver chain purw, pencil, tiny mirror, glove- buttoner. and a dozen other things equal ly useful. One thing, however, which there his never been any means of carrying with any comfort, and which Is almost Indis pensable to the young woman who exposes her precious nose to the midsummer nun. is the bit of powder and tiny puff with which to cover up the too-ruddy glow in duced by direct or reflected rays. These articles have been inclosed in a liver nutshell about tho size and shape of an English walnut, which can be hung on the chatelaine. It contains, besides the powder puff,, which fills half the shell, a smelling salts bottle with places for five or six pins around the sides of it, and a tiny mirror which form the partition be tween the two parts, and which also has a place for "his photograph" on tho other side of It. It may, therefore, be used to take the place of the separate smelling salts bottle and mirror, besides Its own use as a pow der box, ; and by combln'.ng three articles in one help to solve the problem of what to wear on one's chatelaine. Kxchange. Those "Delicious Drink.' To th Editor of th InHar.apolla Journal: I find the following In the Sunday Jour nal: " I Just exist from one Friday night to another,' said a pretty young married woman the other day. 'We go to the Duicb lieu on tho nights, and there wo meet all tho society people, German and English, who are in town. We can have the mot delicious drinks. " etc. Surely this pretty young married woman must he somewhat in error. I think there are some of our German and KnKllsh "so ciety people" who have a higher aim in life than the frequenting every week of places where they "can have the most delicious drinks." Of course, I know very little about these German and English people, because I tim an American, and the pretty young married woman was careful to omit any reference to such people: but Just Im agine, if you can. the condition of this woman's stomach, which "exists" from "one Friday night to another" only in an ticipation of a season of "delicious drinks," etc. What does fhe mean by drink that Is "delicious," to be obtained only on Fri day nights? Sure.'y it can't be that com mon wash called beer, or that more ele gant drink railed by the gentle name of coffin varnish, or that aristocratic slug termed brandy. These may bo obtained any day In the week, also on the dear Fri day night. Maybe next Sunday's Journal will contain a list of the "delicious" drinks that have so completely fascinated this one particular stomach. It might be Information, however undesirable, to the public, which has been compelled to worry alcng hcretoforo wih only the low-down drinks. If I were acquainted with this pretty young married woman I should llkf to ask her what. In her opinion, is the in fluence she Is exerting on the minds of the young boys and girls who witness these Friday night Boakine:s. Would she want her boy to be guided and led by such a foolish desire. Impelling his thoughts only in the direction of Llg beer concerts? 1 wish she could have heard, at the Opera Ifous the other night, that grand woman Mrs. Lake, vice president of the National Catholic Total Abstinence Society, as she spoke to tho mothers on their duty to their children and society In general in regard to the drink habit. That address was some thing reall 'delicious," coming straight from the pure heart of a loving, true hearted mother. What I am thinking about Is: If this woman, who Is now young and pretty, "exists" only to attend Friday night delicious drink concerts, what whl be her condition and that of her children when she reaches the acre of fifty years. 1f she live that long? Shall we go to the poor-farm statistics for an answer? A fev weeks ago. a young woman attended one of these Friday night affairs, and was asked how she enjoyed the concert. "Oh, lovely! I had five beers." The other even ing a young woman, one of a party of four persons, complained of her drink being "spiked." One of the same party played a mild game of leap-frog over a fire plug. Under the recent decision of the Supreme Court these beer concerts are said to be clear violation of the law In regard to music and liquors, and It seems to me. If the proprietors of common saloons are not allowed to use their big music boxes, these honorable "society people" would find it congenial to their love of independence and fairness to cease from taking advantage of their -less-favored competitors, to say noth ing of tho example they set before the cl lldren of the neighborhood.
