Be sides the members of the circle there were a few Invited guests present. The home was elaborately decorated with holly, mistletoe, ivy and magnificent palms, and vases of royal red roses were placed on tables and mantels. Previous to the luncheon Miss Allen, literary leader of the Cadmean circle, read in her refreshing, delightful, magnetic way a description of her travels, touching chiefly upon her visits to Edinburg, Glas gow, Paris and London. It was a genu ine treat to every woman present, and Miss Allen received tl e enthusiastic ap preciation of her audience. After her lecture the ladies were given exquisite cards, indicating their positions at the various tables. These cards were prettily painted in water colors, repre senting winter scenes, and were marked In gold lettering, with "C. C., Xmas, 1895," and the name of the especial guest and the table at which she was to sit. There were nine tables. At the first sat Mrs. Going and Miss Allen during the luncheon, and at the first course on either side of them were several of the ex-presidents of Cadmean circle. After each course two ladies at every table progressed, the matter being decided by drawing from dainty envelopes, tied with crimson ribbons. The decorations were crimson; candles were tied with crimson ribbons, red roses and the red blossoms of potted plants gave a glow of beauty to everything. The guests's cards were also tied with crimson ribbons. The menu was delicious and elaborate, and was served in very many courses. The first table was adorned with a wreath of holly and mistletoe. It was a beauti ful compliment from Mrs. Going to the Cadmean corcle, and was Immensely en joyed by each member and guest pres ent. The circle will meet next Friday afternoon with Mrs. George C.
