The Winter's Social Season Auspiciously Opened by a Most Charming' and Impressive Function. Tha Ball Moat Artistically Decorated and Tnrnert Into • Bower of Beauty—A List of Home ot tha People Preaent—Women Who Wore Some Notably Effective Gowns—Th* Aadttnne* Leagu* and It* Members. The scene last night at New Tarn Vs ,ein hall absolutely beggared descrip tion. Everywhere waa light, motion, oolor and fragrance, while over and through aU was the sound of delicious music. Every aection of tbe oity and many of the outside towns were repre sented. Tbe varied and rioh oostumes of tha ladiea were set off and enhanced by the somber hues of the dreaa suits, •nd the happy faces and gay laughter of tbe hundreda of guests all went to prove the unquestionable and overwhelming auooeaa —socially, artistically and finan cially—of the charity ball, which haa been tbe almoat aole topic of conversa tion for tbe paat week in social circles. THE DECORATIONS. Ths immaculate condition of the hall Itself, witb its clean, white wall aurface •nd the ivory-white paint on the balus trade of its balcony, which extenda •ronnd three aides, was a moat satiafying background for the dec orations, and the two bright •nd elaborate braes center chandeliers, to aay nothing of tbe dozena of eide brackets, also of brass, with myriads of inoandeaoent electric burners, lighted tbe whole witb dazzling and gorgeous effect. Considering that not a nail nor ■ tack was allowed to be driven in tbe hall, the scheme of decoration waa car ied ont with contaminate skill. Facing the entrance ia the theatrical atage, at tbo back of which wae • drop acene representing a charming wood interior; on the front edge of the stage wae ■ triple tier of potted plante ar ranged moat artistically, and gracefully draped about the pots and boxea whioh held tbem were yards and yards of apple-green cheesecloth that fell almost to the floor in placea, with dark branches of apiked umbrella grass effect ively breaking tbe aurface. Dotted among tbe bank of green were brilliant red bloaaoma of the Pointsettia, and a iaah of red blossoms was placed directly In the center near the floor of the atage. A. Dowinaky, with hia orobeairn vi 10 pieces, occupied tbe stage back of this bank of green, and the numbers, which were especially chosen for tbe pro gramme, were all extremely pretty, new and moat inviting for danoing. Around ths three aides of tbe balcony stands of imilax were gracefully festooned. From nndsr sach ot tbe aide brackets againat tbe balustrade waa suspended • huge bunch of carnations, and where the stands of emilax met midway between the brackets, rare bunches of chrysan themums, co arranged as to color, that thoy produced a most harmonious effect. To each of the aide brackets under tbe baloony around the Bides of the hall, waa attached a cluster of the spiked um brella grass, aod dropping below were bunches of chrysanthemums tbat were a most effective decoration against tbe white wall. Tbe aupper room waa tbe chef d'ccuvre, however — a room bo large that it is almost a smalt hall, down tbe center of wbicb two long tables extended, covered witb snowy linen, only glimpses of which conld be seen through the delicate tracery of amilax tbat was caught along tbe edge, witb strands creeping across the tables and dropping almost to tbe floor. Between the long tables was a smaller round one similiarly dressed. Handsome banquet lamps and silver candelabra were placed on each table, both lampß and candleß having elaborate shades of light pink crinkled tissue paper; a dozen rose bowls beld pink carnations, ducbesse, Ln Franco and other pink roses, and the effect upon leaving the noise and brilliancy of the hall and entering this room where the pink shades threw a Bubdued light over everything was most restful and allur- | ing. A row of chairs extended around the walls, upon which the ladiea were seated, while their escorts received the refreshments from tbe corps of colored waiters in attend- 1 ance. Tbe supper, consistiugof cbickeu salad, sandwiches, coffee, creams, ices and oakea, was Berved during the even ing, and aa it was, for the most part, donated by the different members of tbe league and tbeir friends, wbb superior in quality and profuse in quantity. High screens were placed just inside the main entrance to the hall, making a passageway to tbe doors of the dressing rooms, co it was not until wraps bad been laid aside and the gueßts emerged to enter into their enjoyment, that the fnil beauty and fascination of tbe scene was realized. Tbe ladiea paid for or bad given tbem all the expenses of tbe ball, so tbat tbe entire proceeds from tbe sale ot tickets will go tbe charity fund. THE COMMITTEES, Upon entering the hall the guests were courteously and assiduously cared for by the genial floor manager and master of ceremonies, Mr. Wm. T. Bishop and bis active staff of assistants. Tbe following gentlemen composed tbe staff: Dr. J. H. Utley, Dr. F. K. Ains worth and Dr. W. Ie Moyne Wills, Messrß. W. B. Cline, Frederick T.
