Among the uotablo events of tho season wcro
tho two receptions given by Mr. nnd Mrs. Yo
Chn Yuu, at tho elegant residence recently pur
chased of Mr. Phelps by Mr. Yo Cha Yun
Charge iV Affaires by order of tho Kiug of
Corea. This mansion is charmingly situated on
Iowa Circle, a garden of greenery, in which i
statuo of Gen. Logan will soou bo erected.
The house is four "stories above a basement,
with bay-windows, baths, cas, aud all other
modern improvements attached, thus rendering
everything to be desired for a largo diplomatic
household. The various members with their
families can bo accommodated with all the
comforts and privacy of separate households on
tho different lloors. Tho residence stands on
the northwest corner of the streets cut by tho
Circle at 1500 Thirteenth street. It is a mansion
well adapted for entertaining large companies.
The entrauco is up a flight of steps set back in a
yard on Thirteenth street into a spacious hall,
with drawing-rooms on tho left hand and an
elegantly appointed diniug-room on tho right,
with butler's pautry and kitchens beyond. A
large billiard-room is fitted up in the basement.
Indeed, to the ordinary observer, the house has
the appearance of hundreds of other well ap
pointed residences. But in this house there are
gay Corean folding screens, hand-painted or
wrought in rich embroideries in colors that defy
description real Corean specimens of decora
tive art that are much admired. There are also
great Satsuma jars in the corners, and manv
articles of homo manufacture that servo to give
the place the look of homo which is so dear to
those far from their natlvo land. The
absence of Mr. and Mrs. Yo Wan Yung Is
greatly regretted by those who enjoyed their
acquaintance. Mrs. Wan Yung was very in
telligent and cordial and made many friends
among those who were first attracted by her
foreign face and native costume Since her ab
sence Mrs. Ye Cha Yun has been diligently
picking up the language, which she is now able
to speak with much grace. In adopting the
American custom of giving one or two public
receptions she' has lost nothing of the modesty
so much admired by her people. It was thought
best to venture upon only two receptions this
season, and the two Tuesdays' preceding Lent
were selected. There was no great effort made
for display. Such simple decorations as grow
ing palm trees in the hall and potted plants In
the windows and on the mantles of tho drawing-rooms
were all. An elegant collation was
served in the dining-room. Mr. and Mrs. W.
Sturtevant Moore, who are naval people and
friends of Mr. and Mrs. Ye Cha Yuu, rendered
valuable aid in making all the necessary prepa
rations, and the two receptions were very suc
cessful. All the diplomatic circle, many of the
Cabinet officers and families, and prominent
Army and Navy officers, with distinguished
citizens, paid their respects. On last Tuesday,
the day being fine, the crowd was larger than
during the first day. Mrs. Ye Cha Yun bore the
fatigue of standlug for four hours without ap
parent fatigue, and everybody was charmed
with her prettily-spoken English and her
pleasant welcome. She wore a rich pale-blue
silk skirt, with a yellow brocaded silk waist.
She was assisted by Mrs. W. Sturtevant Moore,
in a gray faille Empress gown, with a rose-pink
embroidered satin front. Miss Marie Moore,
daughter of W. Sturtevant Moore, wore a hand
some Nile-green crGpolIne. She assisted
at tho punch bowl. Miss Cogswell, daughter
of Representative Cogswell, wore an elegant
gown of white crCpollne. She poured tea in
the dining-room. Ml68 Towne, also assisting,
and daughter of a naval officer, wore a charm
ing reception gown of white silk crGpolIue.
Among the distinguished visitors weroMrvPung
KwansYu, Minister and Madame Guzman, of
Nicaragua; Minister and Madame Romero, of
Mexico; Seiior and Madaino Mendonca, with
the Misses Mendouga, Brazil; Minister and
Madame Zegarra, from Peru; the Japanese
Minister, Mr. Tuteno and Madame Tateno,
Secretary and Madame N. Bolet-Monagos, of
Venezuela; Mr. Thomas W. Crldler, Chief of
the Diplomatic Bureau; the Secretary of War,
Secretary Rusk, Secretary of Agriculture; Miss
Rusk, Rev. Tunis S. Hamlin, D. D.; Mr. and
Mrs. Charles McLellan, 8enator and Mrs.
Spoouer. Senator and Mrs. Dolph, Mr. and Mrs.
and Miss Teller, Mr. and Mrs. Senator Stanford,
Assistant Secretary and Mrs. Nettleton, Colonel
and Mrs. Haywood, Mr. and Mrs. Spinola, of
New York; Mrs. Harmar and Mrs. Reeside,
Mr6. John Morgan, Commodore Skerrett, Sena
tor and Mrs. Morrill, of Vermont; Mrs. John
Sherman and Miss Sherman, Justice Bingham,
Gen. Vincent, ami others too numerous to men
tion. There were fully fifteen hundred or two
thousand callers on each day that Mr. and Mrs.
Yo Cha Yun received. The customs of this
country and Corea differ so widely in regard to
domestic habits that those who know from ob
servation in Corea how excluded tho ladies of
that country llvo can only fully realize what a
progressive 6tep Mrs. Ye Wan Yun and Mrs.
Cha Yun have taken in adoption tho American
custom of ladies giving a public'receution. Mr.
and Mrs. Yo Cha Yun express themsolves as
dellchted with Americans and the charm of
novelty that Invests a now country with an
aggressive civilization. Mrs. Ye Cha Yun says
Washington will ever be dear to her becauso of
tho tender and 6ad associations conuected with
tho birth nnd loss of the Httlo one asleep under
the grass and fiowers of Oak mil Cemetery.
Madame do Barrios gave a superb fancy
dress ball at her residence In Now York ou Fri

dils and orchids; in tho second the flowers were
La Frauco and Catherine Mermet roses; tho
third room was adorned with St. Joseph lilies
and roses. Mr. Antonio Barrios led the cotillon,

eled gauze. She had fringes of jewels around

served at small tables in the conservatory and
dining-room.

ence of tho Immediate relatives of the bride.

Tho annual ball at tho Mexican Legation on
Monday night was the most, brilliant ovent ot
society during tho season. Tho spacious house
was a veritable bower of beauty from the upper
floors to tho basement. At tho foot of tho
broad 6tairway, on tho newel-post, stood a whtto
azalea bush covered with bloom, aud tho stair
rail was wreathed In smllnx; in tho upper hall
palms filled tho comers. Tho bed-rooms aud
sitting-rooms on this floor wero utilized as
cloak and dressing-rooms. Going below, tho
drawing-rooms wcro decorated with palms, tho
mantels banked with maidenhair ferns and 6ct
with choicest roses. In tho dlulng-room, which
on this occasion was utilized as ono of the
parlor suite, tho massive sideboard was hidden
under a bank of ferns aud abloom with La
Franco roses. But the ball-room presented tho
most attractive nicturo of tho florist's art.
The columns wefo wreathed with green and
tulips aud Easter lilies. The broad mirrors that
lino the walls ou all sides wero half concealed
beneath curtains of smila::, looped high, while
tho mantel was banked with tulips, roses, lilac,
and other cut flowers. Tho Marino Band was
concealed behind an evergreen screen. Minister
and Madamo Romero received in tho main
drawing-room. Madamo Romero wore a rich
trained gown of white and silver brocade, with
a collar of pearls, and diamond pendant. A
comb and cluster of diamonds sparkled In her
dark hair. At her wal6t was a jowoled girdle.
Sho wore tan-colored gloves, a bracelet of gold
beads, and white slippers gleamed beneath her
cown as she opened tho ball with tho gentle
grace of movement that characterizes tho Mexi
can dance. This graceful dance was
repeated several times during tho even
ing. Madamo Romero's partner was
Mr. Pacheco. Others dancing in this open

the more delightful. Supper was served in tho
