SOCIETY AND HOME TOPICS FOR WOMEN Wimi _ An Air of Between Seasons Still Hovers Over Smart World's Activities Dinners and Dances Are Informal—Gossip From Other Cities Indicate Similar Season of Quietude—Matters of Va ried Interest in the Gay World—Weddings. Prospective Events—Announcements. Club News—Other Matters Birmingham for the past fortnight has hung to the frayed edge of the summer season. The temperature clung until yes terday to an upper register, and home comings being most desultory, there is still little to suggest the approach of a new season. The fact that a few notable engagements have been announevd and that several particularly important debu tantes are promised to society this winter furnish just now about the only bit of verdure in our social makeup. At the clubs the dinner parties and dances, while augmented gradually by the home comers, retain all their midsummer in formality. It is suspected that the en tertaining for the first brides of the sea son will also be more or less informal owing to tbe unsettled conditions of the early autumn. The brides and visitors always give a season its first impetus, and although September is almost gone,^there is not a hostess who has committed herself to anything in the least elaborate as to entertainment features. • • • A letter yesterday from a woman who lias long been prominent in social affairs in Washington and a keen observer of life in the several circles in the capital predicts that resident or nonofficial so ciety Is on the threshold of one of the most brilliant winters it has ever known. She says that it is generally belielvcd there will be newcomers who are accus tomed to spend the season at one of the great European capitals, and who, through force of circumstances, will take the op portunity to acquaint themselves with their own. Some possibly will lease houses for the season and others will be in this country for shorter periods. Apart from these tranitory newcomers, however, there will be in several of W ash ington’s most interesting homes new ,.u., tpir,*- ,3 who will be a part of the season’s history. Mr. Jerome Bonaparte and Iris bride, for instance, will open the Bonaparte house in K street, which for years, under the regime of Mr. Bona parte’s mother, was so famous as a center of brilliant social life. A number of other young bridal couples will also fill places of more or less influence in Washington’s social life. • • • The little people over at Margaret Allen school are to have exceedingly attractive surroundings this winter, the primary room having been recently renovated and refreshed for their use. It is an attrac tive, bright sort of place with its 10 large windows admitting a brilliant light ^ and a roof garden passage giving a pleas-1 lug view and attractive exit. Except on rainy days, as was yesterday, an early period of play is given at 10 o’clock for the tiny, restless people, and in play as well as in the first simple tasks they are directed by two efficient teachers. Miss Mary Weisel taught last year in -department, and Miss Elsie McIn tyre, who is a graduate of the Birming ham Kindergarten Training school, and taught two years in the public schools, Is also in the department. Mrs. Gusen, is teaching the youngsters music and Mr. 'Miles dancing, so the primary department is a center of activity. MISS BEAN’S MARRIAGE TO MR.

Mail Order* Filled ' State Fair Next Week morning at the San Jose, where the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Bean, have a cozy apartment. The rooms were made into a veritable bower of smilax and loses, so that, despite the gloom of the outer world, the lovely bride spoke her vows In the midst of the cheeriest and happiest surroundings. An altar was made in tlie living room of bride's roses and smilax, the greenery making a fresh background for snowy blossoms. Mrs. Robert F. Burnett was Miss Bean’s Ale attendant, and Mr. Frank Oinoochio or Little Rock attended Mr. Brown as best man. Miss Edith Bowron played the nuptial march with exquisite taste and feeling. Mrs. Burnett always looks stunning, and yesterday in her dark blue cloth gown | trimmed with fur and corsage cluster of I lilies of the valley she was a fetching ex i ponent of the new modese. The bride followed her matron of honor 1 to the altar wearing a smart going-away ; suit of midnight blue broadcloth, to which a little turban encircled with zebra feath ers gave a bright touch. A white prayer book marked with a spray of valley lilies accentuated the dignified note of her cos tume, and her ornament was a handsome diamond pin, the gift of the bridegroom. The vows were pronounced by the Rev. Dr. Atkins, who used the ring service and immediately afterward Air. and Mrs. Brown left for a wedding trip to the gulf coast, and to visit points in Texas. After , a month they will bo at home in Little R.ock, where Mr. Brown b* a member of a prominent family and a well known young business man.

She entered on the arm of her father, Mr. Sinclair Bennie, who gave her in marriage. Her wedding gown was of soft white crepe de chine, with bodice and over-draperies of white chantilly lace and pearl trimmings.

Tables were arranged for bridge and1 “The 1914 Alabama State Fair Promises to Surpass All Others In History of Association,” Says President Brown - i... By DOLLY DALRYMPLE Certainly— Everybody in Birmingham, it matters not how they differ on other subjects, will agree on one—and that is, that Mr. Robert A. Brown Is one of the ‘most popular and valuable citizens in this com munity. In the commercial world, in society, in charitable enterprises. Mr. Brown Is a dominant force, .generous, able and al ways agreeable in any undertaking he assumes, and as president of the Ala bama State Fair association be is adding new laurels to his crown for the splendid and systematic manner in which he is handling the situation and the excellent results he Is achieving. 9 Air. Brown IS'one of Birmingham's big-j gest individual assets—a young man who! has grown up with the community, and j who today stands for all that fine citi zenship demands in every walk of life, j The Fair association is to be congrat ulated upon having so superior an offi cer and one who is so generally liked. It wasn’t an easy task to follow the presidents who have gone before—Mr. J. H. Holcombe, Air. B. B. Burton and the others—because each has shown marked ability in the management of the affairs of the organization, but the mantle has fallen on shoulders quite worthy, when Mr. Brown took charge, for he will un doubtedly leave a big plus mark to his credit when the fair of 1914 Is over. "The night that the 1913 Fair closed," said Air. Brown when I was chatting with him yesterday about the opening of the 1914 Fair next Monday and also about his recent visit to the Louisville, Cleve land and Nashville fairs, "the present Fair was begun at a directors’ meeting that evening. Many concessions were allotted on that occasion—indeed the de mand was very encouraging. Since that moment the men connected with the Ala bania State Fair association have been busy arranging for the 1914 Fair, all of which I may say incidentally Is due with out compensation or remuneration of any sort, save the gratitude that is shown by tne citizens of this community in their generous appreciation of our efforts. "The present association has paid off an Indebtedness of something like $50,000 which had accrued from other previous efforts, and today the Alabama State Fair association stands pre-eminently be fore the public as the only State Fair which, without state aid (one small ap propriation only having been made) or without contributions from the citizens and merchants, is a success," said Air. Brown. "In comparison, how did the Cleveland, Louisville and Nashville fairs impress you?” I asked. "In Louisville I was greatly impressed by the magnificent coliseum, which they have at their fairgrounds,” was the reply. "It is a tremendous building, erected at a coat of $105,000. Here the horse shows are held and all sorts of entertainments, and the president of the fair association told me that the building bad up to the pres ent time paid for Itself 10 times over. I saw a saddle horse shown there which won the $3000 stake, and a wealthy ranch man from the west bought the mag nificent animal and paid $5000 for it. He will exhibit the horse in California for the world’s prize for saddle horses.’” "Would a coliseum or a building Blmilar to the one in Louisville be practical at our fairgrounds?" I asked. "The owners might donate the ground and the citizens might contribute the funds to its building and it could be used for conventions and meetings of all kinds and descriptions," said Mr. Brown. "It would be a great addition undoubtedly. You know the object of the Alabama State Fair association is to make It a perma nent playground for the people of Bir a hand-painted plate was awarded to the player having the highest score at the end of the gamq.

Hilliard, which took place yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock at the home of the bride. There were no attendants and only a few friends and near relatives of the couple were present to witness the ceremony, which was performed by Rev. W. E. Morris, pastor of the Wood lawn Methodist Episcopal church. Miss Field waB attired for traveling In a suit of bronze-green broadcloth, with which she wore a becoming hat to match.

BROWN President of the Alabama State Fair J mingham. After the fairs each year we want to convert the. grounds into a real playground for the people., in Cleveland I visited the fair which was novel in that the idea Is still in its infancy there. The fair ih held under tents as they have no buildings at all yet. They had an im mense attendance, however, and a very good fair. In Nashville 1 was impressed with the immense proportions of the grandstand. It is almost twice as large as ours, and it vv'as tilled to its utmost capacity each time I^ivas present. Of course in Louisville the live stock was one of the most important feutures of the fair. Twelve hundred head of cattle magnificent specimens, too—were on exhi bition." "So much for the fairs I have attended within the past 10 days," said Mr. Brown, "and now for the Alabama State Fair I want to say first of all that the woman’s department surpasses anything I have ever seen anywhere. Rice & Dore’s car nival, which is a brand new attrac tion at this year’s fair, *Ts a southern organization, and you can judge of its popularity when I tell you that it has been booked from Seattle to Cleveland consecutively since the fair season com menced. The giant roller coaster, which \fr. Welcher has built is a half mile track and is one of 20 w’hich he operates in the United States. Mr. Welcher affirms the fact that has already been stated, that in the 20 roller coasters which he operates, ilso one in Toronto, where the attendance it the fair is 1,500,000 people, and in Dallus, Tex., where the attendance amounted to 150,000, and of course you can imagine the number out of these who patronize the roller coaster, he has never had an acci dent, not so much as a pin scratch, to my of his patrons." "Paine’s firew'orks this year," Mr. Brown went on to say, "will be pre jented on a larger scale than ever be 'ore and Mr. Duffield, who will su perintend the production, numbers >ver 300 people in the performance of the Panama Canal In Time of War.’ rhe free acts with Mr. Caruthers again it the helm, Includes some very high salaried performers, and some of the pest acts that have ever been seen tere or anywhere else are on the list. )f painting and expects to remain un il Christmas. * • • Mrs. Odelia Logan, who has spent the summer with her daughter, Mrs. John IV. Luke, left this week for Washing ton to join Col. and Mrs. John T. Vran Orsdale. Colonel Van Orsdale re cently retired from the United States irmy and after a residence of several pears at Fort McPherson where he was (Continued on Page Elcveu) * We liave chosen the cleanest and the most wholesome attractions in every de- ! partment. for we want the atmosphere I of the Fair to be educational, entertain I ing and productive of good. We have! not only considered the pleasure of our' patrons, but their safety and comfort! as Yell, and I am enthusiastic over tin* manner in which everything is being done.” "And the music?” I questioned. “The very best has been provided,” said Mr. Brown. “JThe Hcotch High-1 lander band, under the directorship of! Mr. Ray Smith, has an enviable repu tation, so much so that Mr. Caruthers has booked the band for a tour of the country after thy fair saeson is over, j On account of conflicting dates Mem phis was unable to secure the Scotch | Highlander band, and so they asked j Nashville to allow the band to go to Memphis for a Sunday concert, for which they paid $1250. The Scotch! Highlander costume-kilts and head1 dress make the band a very picturesque ! figure, appealing tcy the eyes as well as enjoyable to those who love* music.” “It is unnecessary to ask if you have received hearty co-operation in your efforts in spite of the war,” I sug gested, “because your enthusiasm shows that you have.” “Unlimited and enthusiastic support has been received from every quarter,” said Mr. Brown, “and the board of di rectors has not only given freely their support and energy and time, but the members have solicited opportunities to assist. That the fair is one of the greatest advertising mediums that Bir mingham has ever had—in fact, that Alabama has ever had—is plaintly shown in the desire of the ‘concession’ peo ple to come here. They have all headed for Birmingham and the State Fair, and they all want to come here, which they are doing, following on the heels of the fairs at Louisville, Nash ville and the other big cities, showing that Birmingham stands high in the lisl of fair towns. I would like to have this point understood: The fair belongs to the people of this state—to those who have helped and are helping to make it a success. It is theirs, and we want them to enjoy it, and just here it may be timely to suggest that it is a mis taken idea that so many have that the fair is not as good on the opening days as it is later in the season. We pay for the same amount of music and the same attractions op that day, as we do the rest of the time, and every detail will be in order next Monday just as It will be on the final day of the fair. We ought to have a record breaking attendance next Monday. We have done our best to make the 1914 Alabama State* Fair Fa success, and now we of fer it to the public for approval.” SOME HELPING HAND j_HINTS FOR THE HOME By MARIO* IJ Alt I* A * D * „ i.. _ v anuiea v egeiabies "\V ill you please send me, through your I Corner, or in the ipclosed envelope, any recipe you may have for candied veg etable.*# i am on a farm, trying to se« what a girl can do with small vegetables.
