(No cards.) U ' iD- Of Winter QluH SOME NEW AND CLEVER FORMS OP ORGANIZATION. The Society for the Discourage ment of Divorce "Will Be One of Them. It is in autumn that woman's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of clubs and It Is to the members assembled Hint wives and daughters now tarry, con sider and solve Hie knotty problems of life; as, for example, lu the new society An Elderly for the discouragement of divorce. The sisterhood includes in its membership all those serious-minded women who arc grieved to tee that though their sex has advanced In many respects onto a higher plane, the management of husbands Is at a very low ebb. and tLe frequency of di vorces promises to become a blot In the path of emancipated femininity. The club in four monthly meetings considers nil (bete things, and any member i prnileged to cite any serious case of conjugal diffi culty that has come before her eyes, and hear the club's advice as to its tcttlement. She must always speak in the third per son, and use assumed names, after which the members In turn deliver their opinions on the cae, argue it out, and at length draw up a set of resolutions to be handed dowu to the pMlntiff. There is no ques tion too small or too large for the sister hood for the promotion of matrimonial hap piness to grapple with, and the opinions handed down nearly always counsel long The Tonst tolerance, with even the most deeply of fending husband. DANCING GBANDllOTHERS. A good many members of thesisterhood, who have passed Into the stage of stately matronhood, also owe their allegiance to a dancing class, that is open only to elderly women, borne of them grandmothers. Few enough of the sex, after reaching thedignlty of forty-five years, care to dance in public and share their daughter's part ners, though their toes may be as light and their hearts respond as gaily as twenty years ago. Tbcchnpcrons' dancing class has been the outcomeof this desire for youthful exercise, and on slated mornings, at 11 o'clock, a score ot dames, with more or less frosted heads, witli a gleam of latent frisklness In every eye, and their feet shod in correctest patent leather pumps, bustle Into some member's long drawing-room nnd go whirling down the waxed floor to a be guiling waltz strain. The only men of the party arc a danc ing master and a group of stolid German musicians, stationed under the palms in the hall, for the dames dance together, polk, walk, glide, and gallop through all the latest steps, pair off for the lancers, sometimes spend the whole morning over a gcrman with favors and Invariably wind up with a good old Virginia reel or Highland schottlsh, showing as much grace. In spite ot their sometimes, noble girth, as the sllmest debutante and as much ginger In their heels as West Point cadets. At 1 o'clock the dance Is over and at ball past the dining room doors are opened to the sort ot luncheon twenty hungry women are bound to relish after two hours' hard exercise. FRISKT DEBUTANTES, tt docs not require commanding acu men to translate the meaning of the Prowlers that has drawn Into its r.Tits the very flower of this winter's flock of debutantes. Since last autumn they have proved the strength of their principles by going to one of the ma-ked balls of the Art StudcinV League, by dluing In n far West Bide restaurant, much frequented by literary Bohemian's, where one coots one'a own dinner over the coals in big braziers, by the theater panic in the gallery of the Rods, by attending an anarchistic meet ing in the lower lily, and otherwise teeing lire on the oilier tide. The Prowlers move lu large Imdies of eight and ten, pi loted by a louple of efficient chaperuUH, and go on bl-moutlily prowls with results both edifying and amusing. THE TOAST CLUB. There is something both frivolous and instructive already shadowed forth in the first meetings of the Toast Club, that acknun lodges Boston as the city of its Dirndii;; Class. , nativity, and is composed of a sltong body of those women who can achieve anything when once braced by a hand some luncheon. It is wticn the tide of the menu has ebbed lo coffee and the butler sets before every woman a glass of that innocently wicked lotatlon, green swizzle, that the ho-te...3 and tonst mistress rises for her remarks. She leads olf with a few choice sentences and calls upon some guest, who has only received warning as she entered the dining-room, to respond to the toast given at the bottom of her menu. Now the rule of the club is that no woman can refuse to lerpord, that her speech must not consume over four minutes and It must lie on the implratlon if the moment Not less ll.an five leasts are proposed and an swered at every luncheon, one oftliem must always be to the hostiss ard the other four are fixed by the committee. "The New Woman." "The Tuture of the HucuauL" "Suggestions for the Encouragement of Luncheon. Masculine Emigration to Bummer Re sorts," "The Housekeeper's Responsibil ity in Street Cleaning," is a fair sample of the questions ventilated in the requi site four minutes allowed for each of them. At least one of the subjects must be serious In Its nature and seriously treated, and when oil the green swizzle has disap peared the women ballot on the toast by writing upon slips of paper, dropping them in a big silver loving cup, and when the votes are counted she who is conceded to have made the cleverest toast Is entitled to wear till the next meeting a charming club pin. This Is a wreath of gold laurel leaves set with pearls. WaslilnctoniaiiK In New York. (Bpecial to The Times.) New Tort, Oct. 2. L. II.

J Sew Hooks Are the Sole Toplo at TtieKuGutrierlngH, With.otCourMe, Some Little Gossip. It is a matter for congratulation to those who have followed the fortunes of the tea table, from the rin,t topply little affair, with Its impracticable furniture, the too gorgeously embroidered cloth, the wobbly hot water pot, the lamp of which could rarely be Induced to burn, or It it did burn was never manageable, but spilled the alcohol over clow and carpet, which the flame followed, creating no uproar of ex citement and leaving black holes, when the fire was finally extinguished by the united blowing of the entire company It was in J Ibis service, by the wuy, that Mr. Fox Ilunlcr's beautiful mustache was sac rmced to the present sulmuiiiiuI and elegant table with Its appointments, mat the lea-table is an established tact. In the begiuniiig only the ultra-fashionables arfecied arternoon tea. Nowadays every body 01 any pretensions, whatever i.us tea served between -4 and D o'l lot-. And it is well served too, quite as well as it is served lu a fashionable London drawing room, where perfection la this function has been reached. The tea 13 hot, tho cu.-s arc generous and the wafers are crisp. Some hospitable matrons serve murnns, hot, toasted, buttered muffins, which are very appealing these cool after noons. Years ago, when the afternoon tea was first introduced, a long-sum ring society nun once said to me, lu couridence, tliat he wondered this function had been left out of the plagues or Job; he thought all otliersurrerinjstnisslnnerwasealleduponr.0 endure would have been a mere bagatelle In comparison to this one. "1'cnlerduy," he said, "at Mrs.Nouveau's, I was glvch a miunre cup on an oblong saucer, which, although it was of priceless Sevres. I could i.ot drink out of It, but pilled the weak, warm stuff, school boy fashion, all down the front of my frock coal. The spoon was .1 gold trident, studded with turquoise, which would not stay out, but rell every time I moved. Finally the minister from Bagdad put one of his ample feet upon It. and I h.ne been In bad odor with lira. Nouveau ever sir.ee." Hut such discomfort is a thing of the past, nod afternoon tea a pleasure, "under the subtle influence of which tongues are loosened and gossip stimulated. All this occurred to me one afternoon recently at a house where thchostessls ne.irlyascha rul ing as the host, and where coinersation is always as merry as the traditional mar riage bell. The very prcttiwt. yonnge-t and happiest yo.i ng ma t nu whom I met 011 1 hla particular afternoon was Mrs. Ward Thorou. She is still in mourning for hcrfathcr, and the little '.lack toque shy' wore with its nodding aigrette, was very becoming. Mr.and Mrs. Tlioro.ibnvoleadthehojscof Mrs.Skiter, on E'glitcenth street, and there Is no ccsles house In towiitforjust two iieoplctolivcln. The wonder if that Mrs.Plntcrcould ever luve been induced to give It up. Evcrybrdy seemed to have a great deal to say! but it struck me as peculiar that after months away from town, at one of their first reunions the convcratlDiijf these fashionable foil:, should have turned on Imok.; which is jdoubtle-. owing to the fact that In ynjiwr there is Invariably an omnivorous cousmnpllon of light litera ture by those people who dance and dine all winter. I l.ung my1 dlmlcKhed head at the lo quacious eloquence of my co-tca-drinkers over looks that I had never heard of. A man who has written several succovrul novels himself said that Maliock's "The Heart of Life" was the IkioS of the year, but he was disputed blankly by a lilerary spinster who said this opinion was disloyal for an AmerjCuhi since the book was as undemocratic as possible, and written in the interest of royalty and monarchical te stltulious. She gave the palm to John Oliver Hobb's "The Gods, borne Mortals and Lord WUkct'ham." A pale little student of pscholegy. who sat on theend of a div.iu. nnd eousiiiueil tery much and very weak tea.maoea bold stand for Ben son's "The Judgment B.snks" as the liook of tho year. At which opitiKin eeryune ninth! Pin. neither would they Ii-tcu lo any laudation of Grant Allen's historical production, "The Woman Who Did." "What can 0110 exiiecl from such a I'lill-i-tine crowd?" lie asked me. aud retired liehlud his seveuth cup of tea The conversation, at any rate, was be yond my depth, and I was very glad when it was interrupted by the arrival of Com mander Reisinger, who came in to leave his. p. p. c. This prince or naval officers sans oil the Mouocacy on Saturday and his destination Is China. No one could make him admit that the idea of a three years' cruise whs distaste ful to him, but Commander Rei?h.ger is a pluUropkcr fiom Ills point of view -whatever is, is right." Tlie commander was very smiling, very amiable nnd very gracious, and liefore he left promised to send us each a piece of bric-a-brac, at which the literary spinster, who dotes upon being called a blue stocking, begged him not to send her a modern piece- One of the new diplomats, who 13 Indus triouely learning his Washington, asked me, among other things, why t he big brown stone house on H slrcct, near the Arlii.gton Hotel, was called Buckingham Palace. "It la not a leetle like ze Buckingliam Palace," he paid, earnestly- And lie is, of course, right. It Is not "a leetle" like Buckingham Palace, and, after explaining to hint In French. German and English, I finally made bun underetand that this big, brown house, built more than halt a century ago by Matthew St. Clair Clark. Clerk of the Houe of Representatives, and occupied by Lord Arhburton. the English Minister, fi nally came into the possession of Mr. Cole man, from whom it defceiiileil to his daughter. Mrs. Freeman, then to her daugh ter, who married Lieut. Buckingham, of the Army, whose friends facetiously dubbed his new domicile Buckingham Palace. I am convinced that my foreignfriend thought this bit of American humor very stupid, al though he laughed appreciated-. . f , MISS MARCHMONT. Rupert D. 'Bowles and Miss Lula Mi Pippin, a yoVmgVoupIe rrom Richmond, Va., were married in the parlor ot the Howard House last night at 11:30 o'clock by Rev. E. 8. Todd, of Uamlinc M. E. Church.

The manicurist told me also that it whitens the skin more than any preparation. It has taken the place of the old-time remedy mutton suet. It should be well rubbed into Ekln, and gloves, preferably white, slljn-d an. The palms ot the hands should be slit In several places to allow the air and pre vent cramp of the mnccles. and the finger tips clipped off. Vaseline should neverbe allowed to touch the hands. It turns the Bkin yellow and leaves a stain on the naiU that is bard to clear away. A New Evenlnp Game. A new form of evening entertainment Is called "heart party." A large heart made ot red flannel clcth. Is pinned upon a sheet hung from a door. In the center of the heart is sewed a small circle of white. Arrows of white cloth, 'with pins placed therein, are given to the guests, each arrow bearing a number, the number corresponding to a list where on the names and numbers of the guests are placed. The point of the game, of course Is to see which person when blind folded, win pin the arrow nearest to the center spot ot white. Four prizes may be offered, one each for the persons coming nearest to the center, and one each to those coming furthest from the bull's eye.
