Perhaps the pnettiest of all the sea son's Valentine parties was that with which Mrs. Myer Lewis entertained a company of young people last evening in honor of her nieee and house guest, Miss Meta Schwab, of Birmingham. Thursday evening is the date of the meeting of the Weekly Whist Club and Mrs. Lewis borrowed it for the enter tainment of the company of young peo ple, much to their delight. And to their surprise, upon arrival at the beautiful residence on NorthJeffer «on street, they found that the even ing's t hostess, instead of giving the usual unpretentious entertainment, had prepared an elaborate Valentine party for their enjoyment. And certainly they enjoyed it to the least detail of arrangement, appreciating to the ut most the care the hostess had expend ed to make the occasion worthy of her guests and of the honoree. A picture in itself is her home, and each room presents a continuance of the beautiful scheme of the artist-de curator, therefore is there never any need of added decoration for entertain ments. Last evening, however, Mrs. Lewis had borrowed many an odd and pretty idea from St. Valentine, and had taken from his store of dainty possessions many souvenirs with which to give her home the Valentine air—dainty bows and arrows, tiny Cupids and "hearts and darts" of every size and shade abounded in all the rooms, while the flowers were all of the deep crimson hue, as were the ribbons used in tying vases and crystal stems and handles. The game was enjoyed until the hour grew late, when Mr3. Lewis had a most delicious supper served for her friends, the Valentine motif being carried out in the most artistically.
