AT A RECEPTION
Honolnln Society Gives Welcome
to Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Cook
AT THE HEW LOWERY HOME
A Brilliant Company in a Beautiful
Mansion Departure in Building.
Court and Fountain.
The most brilliant and unusual so
cial function Honolulu has known for
a long time was the reception to Mr.
and Mrs. C. W. Cooke at the new home
of iMr. and Mrs. Fred. J. Lowrey on
Tuesday evening last. Feature piled
upon feature to enhance the pleasure
of the event. It was the first gather
ing of Vanity Fair for some months.
Social life has been but faintly throb
bing lately. Mr. and Mrs. Lowrey are
very papular here. Mr. and Mrs. Cooke,
who now tentatively have their home
on the Coast, are always most cor
dially welcome to Honolulu and were
on this occasion warmly greeted by the
hosts of their friends who had been
bidden to the reception.
The Lowrey mansion, at 'the corner
of Victoria and Lunalilo streets, is
notable for its interior,
of Messrs. Ripley and
the -work of Contractor
Wilhelm. From the wayside the large
and shapely house, with its tropical
setting, presents an attractive appear
ance, but the beauty and the charm
and the artistic effects are within the
walls. Guests on Tuesday evening
were niuca mieTesieu m cue tiiiaiisc
ment of the mansion and were enthusi
astic over the neatness and comfort
and satisfaction of the whole. The
finishings are rich and harmonious and
the furnishings pretty without being
extravagant. One bed room in parti
cular was voted a lovely place. It is
spacious apartment with high ceiling
and is trimmed in curley redwood that
was by many mistaken for koa. All
is of curley redwood, even the mirror
and picture frames. Stairways through
the house are of oak, with selected
Like every model residence in Ha
waii nei, the Lowrey home has the
wide lanais and the half outdoor rooms
so dear to those who like Island life.
The windows are wide and of the
clearest glass and favorable - view
points -were provided.
The home has one distinction or
characteristic that gives it individual
ity and beauty and architectural flavor.
This form makes the mansion stand
apart from all others. In Roman re
sidences of say the Pompeian period
the residences of the patriarchs were
inevitable in the Atrium. Lew "Wal
lace, Sienkiewicz and other prominent
writers of this day tell of this bit of
garden maintained within the house of
the men who ruled the world when
art and arms were the only recognized
forces in civilization.
Passage through a hallway and a
lanai is the journey to the Atrium.
The room is fifty feet by thirty feet.
In daily life half is for dining hall
and half for living room. There are
no partitions. The floor is of hard
wood. The columns and pilasters are
of oak. There is beam ceiling of se
lected pine. The well to the roof has
a dome top with art glass. The sides
of the well above the ceiling make a
gallery and on the night of the recep
tion the scene 'from the vantage spots
overhead was an enchanting one.
The beauty spot in this great court
is the fountain reserve. This is the
space that gives the technical name of
the Atrium to the hall or amphitheater.
Mosaic tiles, white and blue, cover a
space eleven feet by fifteen feet. In
the center is the sunken fountain, with
white tiles at the bottom of the pool.
Ornamentation of such an extensive
space as this large court affords is no
small task. It was made a bower
for the reception. Calla lilies were in
the pool. About the fountain were
banana trees and palms. Potted palms
and ferns were set around the room.
There v.-as an extra amount of the ver
dure in the corner occupied by the
receiving party. On the walls were
pictures and plaques. The pper is
something new here this year. It. is
called fibre paper and in the ourt is
of a d irk blue color, making a silent
melody with the oak and countless
One side of the court has a seating
cove. Another side has the buffet with
bevelled rdafe crlass. Another side has
the china r'o-et with bevelled plate I
During the reception music and re- ;
freshments were served. Those who
enjoyed the hospitality of Mr. and
Mrs. Lowrey and who had the pleasure
of greeting Mr. and Mrs. Cooke will
long remember both the social affair
and the beautiful house which was for
the first time opened to friends of the
owners. Following is the list of those

A Careless Wheelman.
A wheelman going at good speed
made a short turn to the sidewalk
yesterday on upper Fort street. In
executing this maneuver the cyclist
passed under the head of a horse at
tached to a brake in which was seated
a lady who had just left the offico
of a physician and who was quite ill.
The horse, startled by the sudden ap
pearance of the wheelman, jumped
back and the lady was all but thrown
from the brake. The lady sustained
a 'severe shock and last night was
seriously ill. She and her husband
intend reporting the matter to the
Marshal. The rider was extremely
careless and was sharply reprimanded
by a policeman.
VAX Police Drill.
Marshal Brown has decided to give
a drill of both the mounted and foot
police in Punahou pasture on Satur
day afternoon for the benefit of the
members of the Legislature. Of course,
if the transports are here the drill will
be called off. The public are cordial
ly invited to attend. Many people
have signified their wish to see these
drills of the police but, since they
have most always been given in the
early .morning, their wish has not been
gratified. They will have a chance on
Saturday. The drills of the police are
certainly worth seeing.
The piece of China decorated by
Miss Herrick and donated by her to the
Red Cross Society, was disposed of yes
terday afternoon and Mrs. E. D. Ten
ney is now the owner. The beautiful
piece brought $10. The money will go
into the treasury of the Red Cross So
ciety. From Col. Parker.
Mr. II. S. Townsend received a let
ter from Col. Parker by the Mohican
mail to the effect that the summer
school lecturer expects to leave Victoria
on the 30th of this month for Honolulu.
Col. Parker has already sent an exhibit
of educational work which will prob
ablv arrive on the steamer with him.
A GENERAL INVITATION.
The millinery displayed at L. B.
Kerr's Queen street r.tore is a sight
long to be remembered. Hats and
bonnets are many and beautiful. The
style of trimming most artistic; the
arrangement of colors most exquisite,
and must be seen to be appreciated.
An inspection is solicited. All are
I rather like your looks."
