X Extra Salesladies to Wait on You Quickly. No Goods Sent C. O. D. or Charged. Morris Jferzog & Co, TOMS &JBS yMB9W3ASMwr IS wmmm 9-im mcieSTt ; On V I ,f p$j We did many pleasant anil profitable nodal "stunts" last week. Wo ran the gamut, from th Fowler hall on Slonday night, which was "the" hall of the winter and of many winters, through a long list of teas, luncheons and what nor. to th small and early Riven on Saturday night liy Mrs. Theodore Oiranl Meier for her tun visiting nieces. Kverybody appears to have enjoyed the lis.. This giviK over most of ,'the entertaining to the matron;-, which has not:eeably characterized the eason. lias been productive of more . gen eral good spirits. I believe, than for many n season In the jjist. They took charge "arly and are assuming all the managerial duties: and not In years have there been no many genuinely pleasant functions. Seven bachelors of town mffered even nevero shocks a short time aso, when cards were sent out by one of the nio.-t pnpuljr nnd well-knowi Hostesses in the West End. Tho seven vere not ""sufficiently urged." There was an anxlus turning over of mall n tho day th-t rom society folk se celved invitations, but tlie seven were not able to discover anything that might ios Ibly be construed iitot u "Md." I Five of this for-tbe-emee- unlucky num ber took the liilie tUmv and held their peace. Hut tho remaining; two were not so war'- Hastily drawing forwarJ thir most elegant. cream-!:d sMttonary tliey both wrcte epistles .,f xpc. iulatJon somewhat after this' style: "My Dear Jlrs. Uur.rrt Not having re ceived a card for our dunoe I conclude , that mine has probably been lost or mls Jaid. Knowing that you would b glud to ) hear of the mistake. I write ti let you know that I am com! :g anyway. Sir.cerely 'yours. J. HAMILTON' COXCOSIB." Also this: "Mr. St.ddlngton Saptuad presents his : compliments to Mrs. Hostess awl begs to " 4a...- !,.... LI. ..... . a Jon the H '.as not leen received. Mr. Sap- head hop-i that Mrs. Hostess will gra clousIy permit him to be pre-s-eat on that 'occasion. i To Mrs. LlndeH C.ulrvurd Hostess." f ".Vow list to the sequel. T.-. both these polite effu!ojis a -tw'V' reply was sent. It was w-rled ih same in Int.: instances. and read - fellows: "SIrr. i ;es. pr-snts her compliments 'to Mr. St -.-ad (or Mr Cnxeombl and de sires to i,;.,rm him .that no mistake what ever ha- teen made In resccrd to his in vltatlc .o her dance on the 22J. "To Mr. Steddlr.gton Sapliead." . Rather a facer, eh? It fms that the un 1 lucky seven last year, when Mrs. Hostess ' cave a. big reception at one of the club", did not deign thereafter to riv tsir ,.,.- : calls In due and proper fashion. In n way bape or form, did they cvcr.onvey ts tlie ,Jady that they had enjoyed her hospitality and were duly grateful. They were simplv Jax and forgetful, like hundreds of ether.'. I Now. as you very well know, most women who entertain have this" difficulty to confront, but dancing men are' ever rara oves, ami hostesses. Invariably lenient. So the men are fors.ven again and again, vnd so right on committing the same old of- fense. reason artcr season, until thev marry and are :en dragged out by their wives to tJo the proper amnimt of visit paying No remtdy will ever be found Tor this by no means unimportant evil until 'the hos tesses rise en masse and put it down. They have the matter entirely In their own -Tiands. And uatll other entertainers show tho same amount of spirit as the lady of ay story, the evil will continue to hold Its vvn.

But that tliey deserved the lesson, you will admit. Such effrontery Js almost unprecedented.

They have spent a. year or two in I'aria. I lelleve; since their marriago, which has proved a very happy one. Mr. Flagg Is remarkably clever as a portrait painter, and Is whlling away the lime while here depicting the graceful figure and Titian blondeness of Mrs. Dun can Joy may ho have more success than Zom did with this ladyl-alsa Mrs. Charles jv. turner, aits. Joys mother. M1S3 Dacghaday ard Miss Pierce. St. Xouls youns women, who like to flit from home ever so often and delight the eyes -and the. lntelligensoo of swains in other towns, went up to Chicago on Thursday night with 2Hr. Tracy Drake, who was here to talk on Japan at somo club banquet, and are row there In the thick of tho Lake City's galty for a f sw days;. The George Hamilton Websters have got ten back from their wedding Journey, and are now established in Chicago. Mrs. Drake, . who Is a sister of the bride, as you know, rsjave her a luncheon on Friday, which the '8L Louis sister. Miss Daughaday, likewise pllss Pierce, lent their pretence; and last night Mr. and MrsL Webster, senior, enter jXalnod with a smashing big function for the vTijr imurieu young people- The smart set Is to have a "paper cotil lon," early In February, so I am creditably, fcut secretly. Informed. Six young matrons jwlll manage the function, and nearly every body will bo bidden. Tho six? Sorry, but iron pledged not to reveal their names as 'yet. The New Tear's Eve subscription ball pwas altogether such a joyous event that 'mother will be given In February, and ilong the same lines of early hours, no dec orations, and a modest supper without ylne. Those who compose the Assembly Club coterie aro felicitating themselves on the success of their hops, begun In December. The last, a week ago, was especially Jolly; perhaps all the more so because the number of dancers was by no means large; and everypody knew everybody else exceedingly well. Others will be given at Intervals of TlWo weeks until Lent. I have the authority of Mrs. James Law rence Blair for the statement that the Fow ler ball, given last Monday night at the St. Louis 'Club, was by long odds the handsomest function of Its kind ever of fered to the Vanity Fair of St. Louis.- And llrs. Blair Is no Incompetent Judge. Hundreds of American beauty roses, with the longest of stems, were planted all the way up the staircase and gayly nodded their heads in approval of each pretty gown that trailed up the softly carpeted, glow ing red steps. That was Mrs. Fowler's Idea, and she tells me. entre nous, that she actually dreamed of It a week before the ball and had the florist carry out the scheme exactly as It appeared to her In slumberland. The ballroom looked so pret ty, with a big screen of smllax and white hyacinths to" shut out the musicians from view twenty of them there were, too, and 1 never heard. Mr. Vogel play so welL Every woman tnetv wore a new frock, or, at least. If any were old. they were so freshened as to b! quite unrecognizable. Hiss Whltaker. In palest of green tissue, and Misa -Collins, in white embroidered nt with quantities of old Val lace, were natur ally the observed ones of the evening. Tre mendously nice of Mrs. Fowler to give the oance for these two and their friends. I was greatly amused to read somewnere sS?S. . tn tb glrU " debutantes. Emma u ? J""K West. -Janet Lee.

At least six courses, and everything hot and well served. The girls wanted only light re freshments, but Mrs. Fowler asked a mod- 'erato number of married persons, and the more marriel we are the better we do like to be red. sordid though It may seem. That delightfully cordial and attentive hospitali ty shown by the evening host. In iwrsonally SOlng about Trom table to table, during the supper to assure himself that his truests were enjoying themselves and being care fully served, was not the least pleasnnt feature of the ball, either. It's decidedly bad form to discuss the price of things; but that ball certainly must have cost a very pretty penny. No more elaborately appointed entertainment has been given In town In recent years. How In the wide, wide world do gossipy stories with absolutely no foundation build themselves In a night and grow apace? Ths topic of the hour with possibly a close sec ond In the "Wednesday Club's controversy is an expected marriage between a certain charming youngest daughter in one of th old St. Louis families" and a clubman of much prominence, who has been a widower for two years and whose social proclivities are quite on a par with his wealth and his A estmoreland place establishment There Is positively not the slightest sus picion of truth In the rumor. I speak with authority, knowing both the "interested parties." There never has been any founda tion for the story. The gentleman ha3 never called at the home of the young woman, much less escorted her anywhere. i oeneve mat they bow cordially when they meet, and that is about the extent of their acquaintance. Tetthe first girl whom I met at Maude Wells's luncheon last week announced the engagement as settled and told me posi tively that Miss B was hating her trous seau lingerie made at a certain convent, because, forsooth, "she happened to meet her coming away from there only the day before"! Yet the man on my left at the Oil and Paint Club's spread on Thursday night spoke of the marriage In most casual terms as being a thing already arranged, and asked me if I knew the date. Xet everywhere I go I am questioned as to what I think of the engagement, and If It Is true that he has given her a diamond necklace, and a sorrel thoroucbbrel riding horse, and heaven only knows what all! Again, let me rise to remark that there Is not V word of truth In the story, and J think there never will be. attendance. Mr. Barnctt carries his years gracefully, and was the Jolllest member of tho party Tuesday night. He was born In England In 1S13. and came to America as a more boy. He has lived In St. Louis nearly fifty years. Mrs. Hugh D. Marshall will give a trolley party ior tne lAmegny-ltoone bridal party. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A.
