States, but it is expected that it will arrive here en route to Australia in less than a month. This band is one of the most fam ous in the world. It will be a great musical treat if Honolulu people have the opportunity of listening 'to a few concerts given by this organization. The following tells of the band's tri umph on its first appearance during its present tour of the United States: (Washington Star.) The famous British Guards Band, under the direction of Lieut. Dan God frey, gave the first concert of its Amer ican tour at the Columbia theater yes terday afternoon at 4:15 o'clock, at tracting to that playhouse aa. audience large in numbers, kindly disposed to ward the Britishers and yet withal crit ical, providing, there should be any thing to criticise. Before half of the program had been given, however, it was plainly evident that there was no room for criticism except of the favor able kind, and those in. attendance de voted their energies toward making their applause into a continuous ova tion. This applause was first started when Lieut. Godfrey raised his baton in front of his beautifully uniformed band and the instruments broke into the magnificent strains of "The Star Spangled Banner." The audience rose as one man. Lieut. Dan Godfrey comes of a race famousMn the British army. His fath er before him was eminent as a band master; his brother, Charles Godfrej-, is band master of the "Blues;" his two sons, Fred Godfrey and Dan Godfrey, Jr., are both leaders of famous mili tary bands, while Dan Godfrey him self Las for forty years conducted the band of Her Majesty's Grenadier Guards. At the state drawing rooms at Buckingham Palace, the levees at Marlborough House at royal weddings, the Lord Mayor's procession and at the great historic events happening throughout the greater period of the Queen's reign, Godfrey's music has been a prominent feature. For his ser vices, to military music in the British army he has been raised to the rank of Lieutenant of Guards, a distinction never before or since conferred upon any other band master. At Earl's Court, the Imperial Institute, the Fisheries Exhibition, the Crystal Palace fetes and the round of yearly festivities con tinually going on in London, Dan God frey and his band are certain fixtures. His reputation is first among the bandsmen of the world. A Very Pleasant at Horn Honor of Mr. and Mrs The reception at Sweet Home yes terday afternoon, given by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. It. Carter to meet Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Strong, was a very pleas ant affair. The receiving party stood under an immense tree niauka of the residence, with the refreshment pavilion at their right and a background of tastefully draped American and Hawaiian flags. Mother Carter, -who was unable to join the party on the lawn, was at home to her friends in her own room "where many availed themselves of the op portunity to pay their respects. About 300 invitations '-were issued for the reception, most of which were accepted and for two hours there was a conrtant stream of guests coming and going. Mrs. S. G. Wilder presided over the coffee and Mrs. E. R. Adams over the punch bowl, "both of which it is need less to state were well and artistically served. Many new and beautiful cos Urates weie in evidence; in fact at each re ception of late the ladies have appear ed morebrilliantly and tastefully at tired than at the preceding one. The grounds at Sweet Home are noted for then beautiful plants and shrubs and many compliments were passed on thorn yesterday. A slight shower shortly after five o'clock promised to dampen the spirits of the guests, but luckily it Wew over without proving a drawback and the givers of the reception can congratu late themselves on its having had a decided social success.

The impression is indeed unalter able and were it possible to hold a platinotype print in the hand for sev eral hundreds of years the paper would crumble and rot away, but the photo graphic platinic image would remain intact.
