Bismarck, Jan. 14.—It was indeed the seeming happy realization ot a -dream when the eye looked out over the beauty and loveliness ot the in augural ball. It was the gathering of the beauty and the chivalry of* the -state.

The Inclement weather without did not interfere with the brilliancy of the scene within. JjTrom 8:80 to 9:30 a reception was hefd li( Op cpvr ernor's chambers at the capltol and during this hour the receiving line witnessed a constant ptBslng stream of ladies ajid ..gentlemen, the proud residents' of one Of the greatest stated in the union, where the northern breezes have given to women a wealth of beauty unknown to other lands and to men that noble and energetic chival ry which rivals that of the olden knights. Indeed the gathering more represented the imaginative picture of a 'gathering in the feudal halls of the middle ages where was gathered knights and earls and nobles and where kings were wont to come where lady, princess and queen whose lovely brows bore diamond studded crowns, received the homage of men of high degree, than it did a gathering in the beautiful capitol, which stands where less than three score years ago the Indian wooed and loved and fought'. The magic touch of the artist had transformed the chamber from the staid and sober, though rich and luxury lous, hall where the battles ot men and principles ar« fought, into a scene that was indeed truly grand and that would -ha've inspired a poet's pen or an artist's brush. It was in deed a scene of beauty. When the grand march was begun the eye look ed out over a scene of delightful love liness. A part of this were the lad ies whose gowns were the rivals of the finest productions of a Worth Diamonds whose possession a queen might envy flashed and sparkled on many a fair, and graceful throat. -Th6 .merry laughter of these fair ones blended in pleasing harmony with the music of the orchestra, and the rythm of the dance llfte'd the soul into the realms of the aesthetic paradise where all is delightful repose and happiness. Contrasted with the love liness of the gowns of the ladies and adding to the beauty and richness of the latter by. contrast, were the more somber frocks of the gentlemen. It were indeed in appearance more the gathering of the titled men and women of a kingdom to do homage to a prince newly ascended the throne than the gathering of the people of a state to a governor who only a few weeks ago was one of these people. But such It was, and it will live long in the memory of those who witnessed it because of the* brilliancy of the event and the splendid gathering of the representative men and women of the state who composed it. The reception committee conducted the guests to Mayor Webb who intro duced them to the Governor and his party.
