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.
