User nines sat on marble-topped tables with glided spindle legs, and tho men rested uneasify in dainty chairs upholstered In light-colored satins. 'lhe ciouds of tobacco smoke seemed Inappropilate within tho damask draped walls, and the en tire establishment proved vastly better suited to the conventional dinner. The scheme wns successful enough, however, to lead to one moie trial. Tho next time a resort was se lected Allien was perfectly suited to the gath ering from a ina'erUl point of view.
