The cotillion given Thursday night by Mrs. Leiter was the mo-t brilliant social function given in honor or the dying year. The occasion was for "dancers only," al most exclusively for debutantes, and the charming women who, in spite or New Year's, are still as-attractive as in their girlish days. Invitations had been sent out to 1 5() fortuuutes and there were no "regrets." As at least seventy-five of the invited guests were ladies it takes but little imag ination to recall the richness and brilliance of the scene in the lovely environment of the ballroom itself when' the music get the dancers in motion. Hail Lord Tennyson been there he might possibly have written a better "Dn-ani of Fnir "Women, " which would bnve been all the better anyhow if he had made a New Year's study of American beauties. Mr. and Mrs. Leiter received their guests hospitably and with the added gracmus ness of the Inspiration of the event in tended to be honored, Mrs- Leiter was radiantly gowned in purple satin jeweled with rubies. The dinner and cotillion given by Mr. and Mrs. Brice on New Year's night was an event that will not soon be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to be numbered among the guests. The magnificent rooms were fragrant with roses, and at every point were groups of tall, gracefully branching palms and masses of orchids in quaint and lovely jardinieres. The decorations of each of the small tables-scattered throughout the two dining halls were tall glass vases of pink carnations, and candles shaded with frills of green crepe under frames of filigree silver and standing in frosted sliver sticks. Mrs. Bncc was gowned in cream brocaded satin, flowered with pink roses and deli cate sprays of green. Her decollette bodice was veiled with point lace, studded with diamonds, and. the same Jewels flashed on her neck and arms. On each shoulder were full-blown blush roses, and her white satin slippers were crusted with arabesques of gold. It seems scarcely possible that any fu ture function to be given by the governors and members of the Chevy Chase Club can exceed In brilliancy Its hunt ball of '96. Every guest present was in full evening dress, a number of the ladles being In black toilettes, which served as effective foils for the scarlet coats of their partners. There was a supper that included two flowing bowls, and the cotillion that fol lowed was led by Mr. George Dunn, master of hounds. The event of the morning was the hunt wjiich gave name to the ball. The Chevy Chase hunters were reinforced by repre sentatives of hunting clubs from Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York, and the sportsmen, attired in picturesque pink and on their high-bred hunters, made a gallant and enlivening show. It was a pretty day" for this field sport, the damp ground being in favor of the pack. From about 10:30 until late in the afternoon the riders to the hounds were away on one of the successful meets in the annals of the club, and returned in time for the club supper and the now historical hunt ball.

HOW THE CHILD SHOULD BE TRAINED Miss Susan Blow Talks to Mothers ' and Teachers. Great Care ShonldUe liserclHed In Early ImpresrdonH Selection at Color. Columbian University Hall was well filled with kindergarten and other teach ers, mostly women, to hear Miss Susan E. Blow yesterday morning, on the training or children. With Miss Blow in the rostrum were Mrs. Walker, president of the Colum bian Kindergarten Association, under whose auspices the lecture was delivered, and Miss Hart.of the Baltimore TralnlngSchool. Miss Blow Is the daughter of the late ox Gov. Blow, of Missouri. She Is a well pre served lady.withstoutflgure.ruddi' faceand gray hair. She was dressed In a very light gray woolen sturr, her bonnet was incon spicuous, and she read her lecture sitting. Her delivery was very rapid. Among other tilings she said: "Froebel's mother plays mean much to the child, more to the young mother and the kindergarten, most to those who have lived most, loved most, failed most, and conquered most. "The true principle in teaching is to find the point of contact, where what Is to be learned has a natural relation to what the child knows. The great mistake made in families and even In kindergartens is to try to teach the child things which have no relation to their own experience and knowledge already gained. Froebel was particular atout where you hitch on; he was also particular what you hitch on." She told "how, in a Boston school, a temperance lesson was attempted by ob ject teaching, a bottle playing a prominent part. One of the little fellows who didn't get the relations properly drew the lesson that nothing should ever be drunk from a bottle, and so far as possible not from a cup. Another Instance was of hitching on the wrong thing. A young mother was trying ljar.1 to induce her baby to respond through the sense of taste a supposed natural pleas ure In the flavor of tea. A rriend pro tested that she ought not to try to make the baby like a beverage which would probably be hurtful rather than otherwise. It would be better-if he never learned to like it. But,'' exclaimed the mother, "he will not be like his mother then." And was not this, asked Miss Blow, an efort to hitch on the wrong thing? Temperance ought to be taught with reference to the things in which the rhild Is likely to be .intemperate. He will then be temperate of drink when older. The mother ounht to teach the child not to eat too much sweet. But the way to I teach tills Is not by words. Froebel in sists that you plant nothing, not the uurery slip, not the seed. Everything must be developed from what is already within the chilli. Children should be warned by sweetness itself not to eat too much, by sourness that the tiling is frequently unripe and unnt to eat at all; by bitterness puckering the mouth that the food may not be pleasant, but is likely to be wholesome. The sense of smell Is a guard and the boy who obeys the warning of tobacco smoke will never die of "tobacco heart." Froebel would have the child trained In the interpretations of its sensations and A in self-control, in refusing the demands of appetite, when there is warning of harm in that direction. Froebel liked to have not even mere self-control, but the control of an idea. 1 11 her reading Miss Blow said she found that Froebel, Pestalozzi, and others seemed to be making the same general statement, but when concrete interpreta tion was readied the Ie-sons were quite different and developed very distinct ideas. An illustration of this, she said, exists in the common notion that all religions are based upon the name great fundamental principles. She simply asked what -ort of civilization was produced by .two apparently identical religions. If they were the same she would believe that the principles were the same, otherwise not. Aesthetic development was the special topic of her lecture. She spent much time upon the .subject? of color. Children ought not to he left to ideal with colors alone. . Entire freedom of choice led to bar barism. On the o:her hand, the child ought not to be wholly controlled, that was repressive coercion. A restricted freedom was thepiojier method of teaching. Apian for this has Just been developed by Miss Fisher, in Eoston. A chart devised by no's Turner bears a number of shades of gray, and the child is permitted to choose from colors furnished those which he thinks will be pretty with the gray. The colors furnished are all such as will be pretty with the graj s. Enormous develop ment by putting together as beautiful colors that are Inharmonious Is thus ao!ded: yet the child's preferences are retained. This principle of restricted freedom, she said, was of great importance in Froebel's system. Fiosbel's critics make two objections. One is that he gives the type form, a ball in developing the idea round. They hold thata number of round things, as oranges, and apples, should be given the child and let him get the type form himself This objection fell when it was considered that the comparison desired was inevitable and need not be specially supplied. A second objection was that geometrical forms are not beautiful. This, was dis proved by the fact that crystalline forms in minerals are geometrical and they pre cede all other beauty. In the same way architecture leads all the other arts. She warned against bad teaching by giv ing"poor toys. Dolls, painted ugly and ill formed, horns with bad tones and noisy, not musical, drums must be avoided. These things tend to create false Ideals and cul tivate false taste. The fairy tales of childhood are useful but they ought to be re-written. The fairy tales free the mind and broaden the view, but they may produce errors and ought to be rid of this danger. The best definition of aesthetic educa tion, she said, was the process by which the Intuitions of the best souls are made the intuitlons,of all souls. The paper was .received with frequent laughter and applause. Miss Blow will be here for three or four days. She Is stopping at No. 2023 O street northwest, but is not in good health and, can not see many callers. Tonr Ilome Too Small To give a big dinner or banquet?
