All meetings are nights, unless other wise specified. One of the prettiest events in local society was the juvenile dancing party given at their elegant home by Mr. and Mrs. Bell De Remer last evening in honor of their two children. Miss Delores and Samuel. Twenty-six of their littl'e friends were the for'.unate recipients of invitations and gathered at the De Remer residence at 8 o'clock and from that hour to 11 danced in the large rooms on the third floor, frappe being served to them there all evening. At 10 o'clock the company marched down to the dining room where refreshments of cocoa and wafers were served. The tables were decorated artistically with pink car nations one of which was given as a favor to each of the guests as they left the dining room to return to the ball room. This party being something of a .change from the ordinary was all the more enjoyable for the young guests. The De Remer home is an ideal one for entertaining, being spacious as well as artistic. Mrs. I. N. Walker and daughter Ruth Walker of Claresholm, Alberta, are guests of Mrs. Raymond, Chestnut street. They at one time resided in this city and will be cordially wel comed by their many friends. They expect to be here a fortnight. A large number enjoyed the Pioneei dance last evening. ji, Last evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Redick Miss Camila Redick was showered by the ladles of the Rebekah lodge of which she is a prominent member. It is an assured fact that Miss Camila will need no more kitchen articles for a long time to come as everything necessary to a well regulated kitchen was provided fay the ladies as an expression of their friendship and gooa wishes. It was a very pleasant occasion and much enjoyed by all. Miss Redick will be married next Wednesday to Mr. A. A. Bradley of Williston, N. D. Miss Eva Desautels is visiting her parents at Michigan City. Miss Kate Ryan is contemplating a 'trip to West Baden. She expects to leave here very soon. The young friends of Annie Poupore gave her a genuine surprise last even ing when they assembled in large numbers at her home and. proceeded to enjoy themselves as only young people can.

Mesdames Rand Smith, Herman Wolff, George Veitch and Fred Willson will be hostesses at a social given next Wednesday in the church parlors Tjy the Presbyterian ladies. Mr. Reg. Smith and his bride ar rived home last night from their wedding trip. They had a strenuous time being thirty-six hours in going from Portal to Minneapolis the aver age rate of travel being nine miles an hour. Of course the time did not seem as long to them as it would to ordin ary travelers, yet it obliged them to change and shorten their route. They had intended touring through Canada Via Winnipeg but found conditions as bad in the sister country as in this and so went to Minneapolis instead. A unique shower party was that given lately at Hatton in honor of Miss Ellen Peterson who was shortly to leave the town. It was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Nelson where she resided. Miss Peterson came home from town to find the great house in total darkness. She had started to secure a light, when from out the darkness a perfect show er of linen bundles were hurled at her. and a sea of feminine faces greeted her as the house aH at once became brilliantly lighted. The rooms were decorated in broken hearts. Mrs. Thos. Grjfflth is entertaining her mother Mrs. H. A. Goodrich of Cresco, Iowa. She will remain three months. The inaugural ball held last night at the state capitol was largely attend ed and was the most brilliant of any .previous occasion. Five hundred were in attendance from all parts of the state. Cotillion favors continue to be as costly as the hostess can afford, and very well worth having are the toys society plays with at the debutante dances this season. At a recent affair of this sort combination fans and opera glasses were among the novel offerings. These devices are so ar ranged that each part serves as a handle for the other. When the glas ses are in use the fan takes the place of a lorgnette handle, and when the fan is opened the glasses makes a substantial holder. So attractive were they that many of them were "lost" that evening. One young wo man whose fan and glasses disappear ed mysteriously remarked that it might come that cotillion detectives would be necessary in society. Le mons have played an important part in the way of gifts during the holi days. A lemon tree laden with the fruit was given to one society woman, which she displayed proudly. At a party early in the week where the favors, attached to different colored ribbons, were drawn from a basket, a large yellow lemon was discovered on the last ribbon of all. The names of the popular dances which add so much to the enjoyment of the festive season of Christmas have, in most cases, a very interesting origin or significance. The position taken up by the danc ers gave the name to the quadrille, which is literal French for "a little square," while country dance has no connection with rustic gymnastics, but is simply a corruption of the French contre-danse, which the re ference to the position to each other during the dance. The lancers derived its name from the fact that this variation of the quadrille was originally improvised by a company" of lancers for their own amusement while seated in their sad dles. The polka Is a Polish dance, and its name comes from the Bohemian word pulka, meaning half, and refers to the half-step which occurs In this lively measure, of which the more graceful schottlsche Is a variation-, both names, like that of the nation al dance, of Poland—the mazovrka— being native' terms. The short steps peculiar to the old time favorite, the minuet, gave the dance its name, the Latin for small being mlnntus. The waltz, again owes its name to its characteristic movement, the Ger man waltzen—meaning to revolve— expressing the circling motion of the dancers. Hie Roger de Coverley Is named after its originator while the less familiar dance known as the tarantel la is so called because Its vigorous movements were supposed to be a certain antidote- to the poison of a noxious spider at Taranto, in Italy, where the dance is highly poular. The evolutions of the dancer suf ficently explain the term reel. Jig is from the French gigue and break down is a term from across the At lantic, and refers to the final rout be fore the break-up of a free-and-easy dancing party. TRAVELERS' ANNUAL MEETING.

The initial steps towards organizing a Grand Forks military band have been taken which will be perfected next Monday evening. It is expected that soon a leader will be secured and that regular practices will be held. There is plenty of talent here to make this a strong and successful organiza tion. The musical people of Grand Forks have been quite active this week. The rehearsals for the Oratorio on Tues day evening attracted a large number and since then several have joined the chorus until it now numbers one hundred and twenty-five voices and Prof. Stout says there is still room for more. Rehearsals will be given weekly on Tuesdays at the Conserva tory rooms. The Thursday, Musical held itp reg ular monthly meeting on Thursday at the commercial club rooms. The program consisted of selections from Elgar and Willeby and was very en joyable.

Evans' quartet has plans near ly perfected to make a tour of the principal cities of North Dakota and Minnesota and give concerts. Those who have had the pleasure of hearing this quartet at the Christian Science church and at recitals predict for it a very successful trip. An American piano manufactur er, who iiade a visit to Mme Patti's home in Wales, says that the diva has enough pianos and organs scat tered through the castle to stock a music store. Most of the insturments were gifts from makers. Forty concerts and rehearsals will* form the local season for the Philadel phia orchestra. Soloists engaged are Saint-Saens, Gadski, Schumann-Helnk, Arthur Hartman, Rosenthal, Fanny Bloomfield Veisler, Olga Samaraoff, Lhevinne, Petschnikoff. Saint-Saens' tour will include en gagements as piano and organ soloist and orchestral conductor. An effort is being made to get together a body of singers to give the'Opera 'Samson and Delilah" under the composer's direction in a number of the larger cities. Elgar's new oratorio, "The King dom," lately 'given by the London Choral society at the Queen's hall, is a great advance on "The Apostles" but its musical inspiration Is far be low that of "Gerontlus." The didactic nature of the wordB is doubtless re sponsible for the monotonous char acter of so much of the music when the text gives him his opportunity Elgar rises to great heights the whole of the section entitled "The sign of Healing," with its subdivisions "At the beautiful gate" and "The arrest," con tains some of the finest music that he has ever written. Miss Janet Spencer, the contralto, created quite a sensation recently in her rendition of the part of Delilah in Saint Saens' oratorio, "Samson and Delilah." It occurred in St. Louis, and after the performance the great composer personally .congratulated the singer, saying he had never heard the part sung so perfectly and to his entire satisfaction.
