Baltimore society? season was
formerly opened Monday evening when
the first gorman of the Bachelors'
Cotillion was given at Lehmatin's Hall.
The hall was brilliant with a dlstln
I gulshed assemblage of older and
younger members of Baltimore society,
as well as socrety people from New
York. Philadelphia. 'Washington and
other places. Mlas Charlotte Bemiss
and Miss Kate Faches, a debutante of
this season, were nmong the guests
present from Richmond.
Says the Baltimore Sun concerning
tho affair:
"It was the snme old hall where
some of their mothers made their
debut, "oh, not so awfuly long ago."
and It was decorated In the same old
way. it was like entering some an?
cient garden where all their lives they
j had watched the roses bloom. I-ong
chains of Southern smllax. Just as ft
was when their mothers "came out,"
hung about the walls and from the
blnilng chandeliers, glorious with drip?
ping glass.
It Is usual for each debutante to
be accompanied to her coming-out ball
by a chaperon, usually mother or
aunt. Her partner either romen along
or meets her nt the hall. Many came
last night with both partner and
chaperon. Every one of the girls was
so laden with flowers that others had
I to help her carry them. Roses, red
j as "fairies' blood." held against tho
silken dresses of the girls, made a
pretty picture.
"At 11:30 o'clock the girls hnd all
arrived, and while the chaperons went
up on the stage and pat there, remem?
bering other days, the debutantes and
their partners sat about the hall on
specially arranged chairs, "nch girl
the centre of an admiring throng.
"D. Stewart RIdgely stepped out at
midnight to lead the german. The
debutantes placed their numerous
bouquets In little pockets arranged
along the wall of smllax. The hun?
dreds of bunches thus placed against
the wall, made a beautiful sight.
"Dancing continued until enrly
morning, Interrupted by the buffet
luncheon, which was served shortly
after midnight."

"Youthful Charm
To Aged Complexion
"Prematurely or middle-aged complex?
ions can he made soil and velvety and
given a pink and white tint of youth,"
says Mrs. Mac Martyn. in the Los An?
geles Press. "But fust of all, powder
and rouge must be; discarded because of
their ruinous effect on the skin. In its
place should be used a plain spurtnax
lotion, made by dissolving 4 ounces spur?
tnax in XA pint hot water and adding 2
teaspoonfuls glycerine. Using witch
hazel instead of water makes it dry
quicker in cold weather.
"This lotion should be applied to fare,
neck and arms, then gently massaged in,
I and when it dries the skin takes on a soft,
j satiny finish. Continued tiding will rc
[ move pimples, blackheads, wrinkles and
skin-roughness. It is especially hue for
oily or 'muddy' completions, and, unlike
powder, is invisible when on."
