Talk about your "rosebud garden of girls"-If Tennyson could have been be hind the scenes at Sutton's Family theater on last Thursday evening he could have found greater inspiration for suah a subject than he ever did in England.. The combination of such beauty and marked talent is somewhat rare. The really talented girls are generally plain, and beauties generally have a lack of gray matter which is appalling. On this occasion every girl on the program was a beauty, and the two young matrons were also handsome. The concert was given by Mrs. W. iH. Cochran, Miss Trask and Miss Whiting, and has been already appreciatively noted in print. The hostesses were as sisted by Mrs. Ignatius Donnelly, Miss Ida Scott, Miss Drea Johnstone and Miss Faulkner and Baby Willis, all being well known favorites as musicians of ad vanced accomplishment. lAnd sucfh pretty gowns, all made for this one occasion! Mrs. Donnelly wore a supenb gown of black net elaborately sequined in silver, cut low and gracefully en traine with pink carnations worn prettily in her hair and she looked charming. Mrs. Cochran was in pale blue, decollette and en traine, the skirt spreading in tiny ru es at the bottom. The bodice was outlined on the shoulders with white marguerites and a pale blue rsibbon aigrette completed the dainty toilette which was most becoming. Misa Ida Scott was a charming vision in a fluffy white gown of silk mull over w.hite taffeta silk, cut en traine and decollette, with a garniture on the bodice at the left of violets with violets worn in the hair. Mlass Whiting always looks as if she Shad just stepped out of a picture frame and her beauty was exquisitely en hahoed by the girlishly simple but effec tive gown of pink silk crepe d'chine over pink taffeta without flowers or jewels. Idlss Trask was handsome in a silk MISB FLOSSIE HOOPER. Miss Flossie Hooper, secretary of Trinity M. E. Church Epworth :eague, is a graduate of Butte Business College. She has grown up in this city a·i i has a host of friends. Miss Hooper Is a close observer and strong student and as a worker in the departments of th Ep worth league, of which she Is secretary, she has no superior. Her natura' ability and :ocial strength adapt her for many important positions in life. The mem bers of the league are not many., but the Real of the workers keep eac.h -de partinent well sustained, and with a ll'rong saeretary, they wll! move trward to gland tuccess. gauze of white with stain stripe over lavender taffeta silk. It was cut loW and en traine, with elbow sleeves and white aigrette for the coiffure. Miss Faulkner wore charmingly a pale 'blue creation of silk gauze over taffeta silk, with pink flowers In her hair which' was worn low. The two younger talent deserve a' paragraphl, all to themselves. Miss Drea' Johnstone was lovely In it (lear little gown of Nile green prettily trimmed with white, through which black velvet rib bons were run. She is a pure blonde and her curls were tied with black velvet, the combination being most effective. She reeived a hearty welcome for her charming appearance before she sang at all. Last, and only literally least, Baby May Willis in a pure white soft silk gown, ancordeon pleated, was a vision of juvenile loveflness, her brown curls and blue eyes winning the hearts of all who saw, as did her sweet voice the 'hearts of all who heard. Every one on the program has received their quota in print again and again, and each is too well known for need of complliment. Misses Trask and Faulkner appeared first In a piano duet, which received a deserved encore. Then Miss Ida Scott's solo was heartily encored, the response being "The Love of the Red. Red Rose." Mrs. Cochran recited "The Raggedy Man" in response to an encore for her "That Old Sweetheart of iMine," with violin obillgato by Miss Whiting and pitano rcconlmpaniment by Miss Trask. A ihirhrd encore enaled forth three versions of "A Little l'each." Miss Whiting was at a great d<sand vaniltage, her vio'ln being broken. Her selection, however, was enSfhu-liastlcally, enl'reld, anld when the audlience Insist iti shcl 'otlhl0 only ri s.pond with a bow. Mi'rs DIrea Johnstone sang "The IRosary,'" by Nevins, and for an oncore "''111n the (llonaning," with violin obligato. Mis1 Tr.'sk, In her piano solo played. "Silver Spring," dles.riptive, by William Masontl , andl I'roevl'd aIll onIlore.

Mrs. ]'onnelly rang "Happy Days," and for an enc'ore "ThIe Kerry Dance." ,Mrs. C'ochraln closed the program with "Forelgn Views of the Statue of Lib Srly."

Miss Kate Sullivan gave a dream eve ning at her home in ('enterville on Mon day evening. The lucky recipient of invitatlons wonlideredi what a dream eve ning could he. ITponi arrival they found it was a new sort of game Miss Sulli van had evolved from her Inner con s'lousn('ss. Upon 'the tables which were placed as for playing iartds were pencils and paper galure. The first galllme as the writing by eatch guest of the' mitost real Istic dream they had ever had. The dream of HEdwin Walker, of it toboggan slide he had, ending In death, secured first prize, a handsome water color of fairies and the title, "Of such stuff dreamsn are iliade." The second prize, tan edition de luxe of the "Dream of Eugene Aram," went to Miss 'Hattie Matthews. The consolation, ia goblin statuette, was awarded to Anna Stuyen. The second game was the telling of the beat remenmbered dream of history' ora read anywhere or heard of. The best told was the seeing of a dream pictured in Ia play "Paul Kauver," playe(d by Joseph Haworth and Katherine Grey, by Miss Edra Kline and she received the first prize, a handsome copy of "A Mid suminier Night's DI)retia." The second prize was won by Miss Flora Jones for her recital of the dreamn of Itlchard Ill, whiich, by the way, prov'ed her an ex cellent elocutionist. It was a wedge wood placque of at cupld asleep with another bending over him. The uconso lation was a statuette of a tiny chick with his head under his wing, fas'g asleep. Terry Sullivan re.iolved this. The last gamlle was a game of the imagination. A number of slips of pa per were shufttled on a table anl each guest drew one. Whatever subject was on the slip they must make up a dream in which it would figure, such as a ship, a tree, a baby, a lion, etc. This arouse:d every one, for many would commence well, forget, go back, and, finally, give It up. Miss Edrna Kline secured tile first prize in this also, but she refused to receive It although the committee insisted her dream of a trip to the moon was the best. She had one prize and refused the other and, as Lollta McLever told thile second best one-a murder In a forest-she received it. It was a handsomie Royal [lonn vase with several fairy dream mailens paint ed on It. The second Iprlize, a very pret ty volume of "Dreamn Life," went to iarry Scott. The consolatlon, a cunning picture of a child asleep while little c'tlckens pulled at her hai', was the re iardl of Emlma Tucker. Then, when the games word played out and prizes awarded, the guests adjourned to the dining room, where an oyster, supper, flanked by sandwiches, coffee, sherbet and other good things, awaited them. Here toasts were proposed and some excellent Impromptu ones were given by the merry coffee drinkers. The subjects of all were dreams, save "our hostess" and the never-to-be-left.out, "the ladies."
