She's oominr with the flower that will bloom for us once more; She's coming with the brases that will blow along the shore, Thesun will ki her ringrlets and will tinge her cheeks with brown.

And in her brother's necktie will she stroll along the sand; And where the crowd is thickest in the snmmer hotel whirl Will bloom once more the beauty of the charming summer girl. With glossy collar shining in the light of summer days: With vest.and sash, and blazer, we will learn anew her ways; Young Cupid will instruct aus how to pierce the thin disguise Of masculine attire that hides the maiden heart we prize; And, when once more we claim her as the sum mer's priceless pearl. We'll hail the smiling features of the jolly sum mer girl. -Tom MReason, in Cloak Review. The opera has been the feature of the week and everyone has been absorbed in the deeds of Robin Hood and his outlaw friends or humming the pretty airs of Suzette. As the result of such a treat a number of theater parties have been the thing. There is a certain grace in a box party which other parties have not-it may be due to numbers-but certainly it is a de lightful manner in which to entertain frinds. The fashionable world of Helena has never witnessed a more elegant affair than the box party given on Monday even ing by Miss Cruse in honor of Miss Horst, of Butte, nor has anything here ever been given with more grace and comme it faut elegance. The party occupied one of the lower and the two upper boxes of the opera house, and were eighteen in number. And a very brilliant appearance they made in their "glitter of silk and glimmer of jewels," modified by a profusion of beautiful flowers. Mrs. Sweeney, who was the honored chap arone of the party, wore a handsome dress of white silk with lace and flowers. Miss Cruse wore a brocaded white satin, with crepe de chine drapings, V neck and elbow sleeves, boquet of Catherine mer mots. Miss Horst, a cream china silk em broidered in silver, cut decolette, a silver aigrette in hair, bouquet of La France roses. Miss King, a becoming dress of white crepe, decolette. She carried scarlet car nations. Miss Cullen, pale grey crepe with silver embroidery, de medici collar and V neck, elbow sleeves, grey gloves and shoes. Bon silene roses. Miss Rumley wore a handsome cream colored bengaline over flowered silk, with trimming of knotted gauze. Hair very be comingly dressed a Ia Grecque with gold fillet. Miss Atkinson, cream silk, ount decolette, pink and white roses. Miss Davenport, Nile green silk with Valenciennes lace drapings, decolette, dia monds, La France roses. Miss Stella Smith, scarlet net with velvet bodice, cut V neck, elbow sleeves, Jacque menot roses. Miss Chumasero, earn silk, trimmed in brown velvet, demi train, diamonds. The gentlemen were: Measre. Harlow, Hunter. Geo. Child, Craig, Atkinson, Gibbs, Kelly, Carnochan, Stoner, Bach. After the opera the party met at Mise Cruse's house, where an elegant supper awaited them. Before going out to supper, an amusing device had been conceived, by which partners were selected. Cards were passed, upon which were written such ques tions as, "What is the value of a word," and "Which was the greatest poet, Bacon or Shakeseeare?" Their answers respect ively, "Wordsworth" and "Will--s" were found upon separate cards. And as the ladies held the questions and the gentle men the answers, partners were selected without social rigor. The dining-room was beautifully decorated with draperies of pink silk, ferns, carnations and a profusion of pink roses, while the table was beauti fully trimmed with carnations. An um brella of Chinese chryeanthemumr n was suspended from the chandelier making a novel and artistic center piecq. A souvenir rested upon each plate in the form of an envelope made of silk gauze. The supper was elaborately served in twelve courses, one of which caused universal ad miration for its novel beauty. It was a oaureo worthy of the fairies, or the gods themselves who eat their ambrosia from flowers-ice cream served in pure white caster lilies. Three hours were consumed at the supper table, so that it was not until an unusual hour that the guests dispersed after a delightful evening. Miss Horst was the guest of another box party given on Wednesday evening by Mr. E. W. Bach. The party first dined sumptu ousely at tihe Broadwater hotel, after which they took their box at the theater. Mr. and Mrs. JRmes Wells chaperoned, and the party consisted Misses Horst and Orusee and Mssrs. Hunter and Bach. Col. and Mrs. Broadwater entertained a the Bostonians on Wednesday morning with an elegant breakfast. The table, which was shaped in the form of the letter T, was handsomely decorated with flowers, and covers were laid for thirty. The break !ast was elaborately served in courses and the Col. and Mrs. Broadwater entertained in their usual affable manner. Chief Jus- i lice Blake made the speech of the morning, welcoming the company to Montana and thanking them for the beautiful music Ihey had rendered. Barnabee recited that bright little poem that westerners have been anjoying this winter, aboutthe learned TME NEW YORK DRY GOODS STO CHALLIE D ORIENT, SILK GRENADINES.

This was very much to the amusement of the whole party. Tom Karl sang "Kathleen Mavourneen" in such a voice as to make the old favorite seem more beautiful than ever and Cowles sang the song Gen. Sherman used to call his fa vorite, "Old Shady" Frothingham recited, much to the amusement of the party, "The Yellow Dog Under the Wagon.'

On Tuesday a very elegant lunch was a iven at The Helena by Mrs. Mary A. Walker to some ladies from Lenox.

This genial lady is never so happy as when entertaining her friends, and no one knows better than she how to make friends happy. The Reveille club which is composed of I young boys, gave a delightful entertain ment to their girl friends at Englehorn's college hall on Friday evening. Dancing a was indulged in and delightful refresh I ments were served.

A "fad" has reached Helena at last which is creating no small excitement among the society young ladies, chiefly the buds. but all have been interested in it. It is that it is now considered the thing to do some thing i. e., earn pina money, and it is sur prisng to know how many fair little dam eels are extending their little talents with out very much exh usting themselves in one way or another, a THROUGHOUT THE STATE.

The fund was asoepted on the condition that women should be ad. mitted on the same terms as men. The wife of the chief justice of the sn preme court of the United States, although a leader socially, does not despise honse wifely cares. She attends daily to the or. dering of all supplies and makes the moste delicious mincemeat. Rev. Dr. Howells, of the New Yorh Methodist conference, says that the women would raise "Cain" if they were voted against. Mrs. Upton replied by saying that instead of raising "Cain" they usually raised the funds upon which the church survives. Washington, D. C., is talked of as being the first city in America to establish "A Salon." It is hinted that the mantle of Madame de Stael will fall upon Kate Chase Sprague, Madame Iemusat's upon Mrs. John A. Logan, and Madame itecamier's upon Mrs. John Sherwood. A woman who was anxious about many things rushed up to Phillips Brooks and said, "Do you believe in hell and eternal punishment?" In turn he inquired if she expected to go to hell. "No," she said. "Then neither do I, and I don't think we had better spend time discussing the ques tion." "The touch of nature that makes the whole world kin" was shown by Sara Bern hards the other day, when, after going the rounds of one of the New York hospitals, she knelt by the bedside of a sick child, who gently stroked her hair. Tears sprang to her eyes at the touch of the wasted hand. "Ah, ladies." she said to those who ware with her. "this is one of the few sights that have the power to move me." A woman who was very capable and of mature age, a dispenser of charities, indeed, was looked up to in her neighborhood, got married the other day, and at her wedding, yielding to the force of an absurd custom, allowed herself to be given away. If a man of equal ability had suffered himself to be so disposed of he would have been greeted with derision and laughter. It is to be hoped that the value that Petruchio put upon Kate will die out. Olive Schreiner, in "Dreams," says: "Dear Lord, the streets on earth are full of mire. If I should walk straight on in them my outer robe might be spotted; you see how white it is! Therefore I pick mty way. God said: 'On what?' I was silent, and I let my robe fall. I wrapped my mantle about my head. I went out softly. I was afraid the angels would see me." the is my goods, my chattels, she is my house, My household stuff, my field, my barn, My horse, my ox, my ass, my anything.
