By the Way— --- Beth Blaine ■■■ J POKING back over the doings of the past few days, we think of Mary Baxter at the horse show with her three attractive house guests from Salt Lake, sitting in the sweltering sun watching the jumps so intently that they seemed unmindful of the heat. Again, at Bradley Farms, we remember Kora de With, looking like a lovely Dutch doll In her native costume, wandering around all day with a large basket of lollypopa until she finally dropped down on the grass from sheer exhaus tion—all this effort willingly made for sweet charity's sake I It is always remarkable how women have the ability to throw off exhaustion with a change of costume, appearing like butterflies— a new being in a new dress. This was most apparent on Saturday last when dozens of Junior Leaguers labored at the horse show from early morning, and devoted mothers sat on hard chairs watching their "little darlings” riding and jumping fearlessly their favorite mounts, and then, lo and behold, a few hours later appearing fresh as daisies at the French Embassy garden party. Some of these butter flies were Nora de With, Stalellita Stapleton, Martha Davidge and Yolande de Mauduit. ■ 1 '* What a lovely garden party it was! Every Mile, de With. one was there and in his best. Mrs. George Barnett was very smart in a dark blue lace with a large blue picture hat. Mrs. Joseph Davies wore a very becoming black taffeta dress with little embroidered flowers, and when some one admired it as one of the prettiest models they had seen, she said she was delighted, as she had bought it off the rack at one of the large department stores. It simply couldn’t have been smarter! The day was not over, however, with au revoir to Mme. de Laboulaye and the Ambassador, for there was still the supper dance at 1925 P street. This was the second one of the series, and the weather was kind that night, so the enchanting garden was enjoyed to its full. Supper wras served entirely in the garden—from 9 o’clock on—and the dancing began at 10. It was the first time all day we were not “just dying of the heat,” so much sitting was done in the cool of the evening under the trees, which this year are more beautiful than usual—and lighted liberally with Japanese lanterns. Looking like lovely flowers that night were Mrs. Hugh Auchincloss in a white crepe flowered dress with a jacket to match, Mrs. Blaise de Sibour in mauve and fuchsia chiffon, Miss Nancy Newbold in a lovely gray chiffon with a long yellow chiffon cape, Mrs. Matthews Dick in sheer white and Mrs. Kent Legare wearing one of the prettiest gowns ever seen in two shades of blue. With the strains of music floating from the ball room it was a really beautiful setting for a good party, and Pete de Sibour should have been pleased with its success, as it was he who did all the work in preparation. He frankly admitted to us that night that he would have sat right down and cried if it had rained! * * * * ftlT by bit the “stay-at-homes” are being left to a lonesome Summer —perhaps. Clarence Hewes is closing up his palatial mansion with its terraces overlooking Rock Creek Park—which greatly reminds one of the hanging gardens of Babylon,—for London. Then, to our sorrow, Mrs. Campbell Pritchett has rented that nice house and heavenly garden on Kalorama Circle for three years. Those parties most cer tainly will be missed. * * * * J-JELEN and Russell Snodgrass, who were married here this Winter, have rented the family's house on Ash mead place, and have settled down to a somewhat precarious existence with “one chair, bed and bureau.” They can be found almost any afternoon bidding their heads off for all manner of lovely things chez the house of Sloan. * * * * (JLAUDE DE BOISANGER, nonchalant savant member of the French Embassy—second secretary, to be exact—who was seen recently en deavoring to escape the ennui of small tittle-tattle with the younger generation, fell into the capable arms of Mrs. Hamilton Wright, who is well versed on international situations. One of her daughters, you know, married a diplomat. W * * ¥ ALL have realized for some time that Isabel and Sidney Gest are an un usually attractive pair. Isabel is famous Tor the Chilean Quaker, which she dances divinely, but she is most outstanding for her lace-trimmed petticoats, which, according to Vogue, she shows ever so slightly below the hem of her smart frocks.
