Cenramlo Palnters of lrilena-Musloale at Mrs. Oh.slrman's-People in and Out of elesna. A double birthday celebration took place on Tuesday evening among the young so ciety people of Helenn, it being the natal day of both Miss Frances Jurgens and Charles Reinig. The young couple enter tained a number of their friends at the hospitable home of Miss Jurgens on Park avenue, and a highly epjoyable time was participated in. The house was beautifully decorated with quantities of ferns, carna tions and roses. The dining table was a mass of beautiful flowers, fifteen dozen roses being used in the decorations, be sides other flowers. The birthday cake was placed in the center of the table, and bore on it approprlate Spanish and Latin mottoes. The early part of the evening was devoted to a cobweb gathering, and great fun it was picking out one's thread from the labyrinth that wound in and out, under chairs, over pictures, under tables, through doorways, up on the celiings. On the end of all the threads were beautiful fanoy cobwebs of colored silks, and to the two who were winners in the race were given prises. The filst prize awarded to the lady winner was a beautiful hand painted tray (the work of the young hos tess) and Miss Clara Ballard carried it off in triumph. The fortunate gentleman was Albert Hotter, and the award a painted ash tray. The sluggards in the race, while their progress may have been like the snail's, slow, were not in this instance sure. The booby prizes were an A B C book and a baby doll, won respectively by Mr. Ster ling and Miss Ada Roberts. After elabor ate refreshments were served the young folks present were blindfolded and re quired to draw a pig and to sign their name to their product while yet blind folded. The prize for the best drawn work was given to Walter Sanford, a box of Hyler's candy, and Miss Alta Child se cured the booby prize, which was a candy pig. *Mies Jurgens received some very beauti ful presents; twenty acres of sapphire fields, a gold watch, teree sapphire buttons, four beautiful souvenir spoons, a silk umbrella, a gold lover's knot, handsome gauze fan, silver vinecarette, large basket of flowers, boxes of flowers, a bouquet of lillies of the yalley, chiffon handkerchief, and yellow silk party bag. The guests present were Mrs. Beinig, the Misses Alta Child, Al berta Quirk, Liza Rector, Ada Roberts, Clara Bullard, Jessie Nelson, Luella Has kell, Bessie Blake, Annie Reinig and Martha Baird; Messrs. Clifford, Champion, Sterling, Hedges, Harry and Fred Yaeger, Fred Sterling, Ballard, Wolfolk, Klein schmidt, Rolter, Sanford and E. K. Preuitt. Much interest is being shown all over the country toward the formation of a national organization of the ceramic amateurs of America. The chief idea of the proposed association is to promote mineral painting, so that at the World's Columbian expo sition Americans may be represented in this branch of fine art and to establish a purely native school of ceramic art with a view to encourage and strengthen the po sition of mineral painters. This class of artists have not hitherto worked as a body, but it is hoped that by a combined move ment of clubs in the different cities cer amic workers can . cure space at the World's fair which would be denied to in dividuals. This art was in the past kept clouded in mystery, and it is only within the last half of the present century that much light has been thrown on the subject. The members of the national club have no doubt that success will bring honor to the founders and to America. At the world's exhibit there will be no charge for space but to mese the expenses of transportation of goods and their ar rangement, and for a custodian to keep I them in order a small fee will be required from each member. The greater part of the display at the exposition will be the work of women. It is estimated that about thirty branch societies have been started throughout the United States. They all seem to be flourishing, the members all be ing exceedingly enthu.siastio, giving der lightful receptions. and are deeply inter ested in the work. Mrs. Frankelton, who was in Helena sv- t eral weeks during last summer and in structed several ladies in mineral painting, is the honorary president of the Manhattan club of New York, of the Salt Lake City China club, of the California Ceramic club, and has lately been elected. the honorary president of the club formed in this city.. She has been engaged in organiziung ceramic clubs all over the country in view of the proposed exposition, and is now occupied in that pursuit in the western palt of the country. Mr. L. F. Grunewald, of Chicago, who has done more than any one else, especially at the west, toward the advancement of this art, has been urged for the position of chief I of the department of coramnic art at the 1 World's fair. Miss Phillips, of our city, 1 has had displayed in the art rooms of Mr. Grunewald specimens of her work, and that gentleman has communicated with her ask ing that she should organize a like club in Helena that would be a part of the national association. There has been one mneetinu i of ladies regarding this proposed plain, held at the apartments of Mrs. Phillips, in the Diamond blook. A ceramic club was I formed, Mrs. J. T. Murphy beting elocted cresident, Miss IRumley secretary, and Miss Phillips treasurer. The other ladies present were Mesdames Botkin, Child, Joseph Davis. Siebin, Misses Ciuse, Gerner, Dickenson, Marie Kleinschmidt and Irma Kleinsolmidt. It was decided to hold meetinug on the first Monday in each month. It is not compul sory that all who join the club shall send I speooimens of their work to the exhibit, but I a large membership is desired, and it is hoped that all who are interested in the proposed work for the ensuine year will not fail to attend the next meeting, which will be held April 41, at the rooms of Miss Phil- I lips, in the Diamond block. Mrs. Murphy, the president of the Co- 1 ramic club, of the city, has received a com- i munication from the preiident of the Man- I hattan club, of New York, asking if the so ciety hero will join the national association anti if the membors in this city will senid a delegate on to New York. As thers are several matters of importanoce to comle be- . fole the club, it is desired that the ladies E should mneet at an early day. All that are interested in the ! roposed work of tLhiclub are cordially invited to meet at the apart mentis of Miss Phillips, in Diamond blook, on Monday evening, the 28th.
