IN SOCIETY'S REALM
Duties that In the rush of the winter have been neglected, now that the sea? son of Lenten ' penances has arrived, rise before us in their righteous might. Clad In a suitable garb >f suck cloth and ashes we begin violently to pay visits on poor relations who reside In the Buburbs?calls which have been laying over heads like grim night? mares?are conscientiously paid. And then, too, the men must be looked out for. Now there arc no receptions and card parties for them to attend, the so called meeker sex must see that they are sufficiently amused to keep them away from the pernlclousness of club life, and their spiritual welfare must bIbo be looked after and see that tiny are properly carried'to church. And while wo are making our Lenten sacri? fices suppose we deny ourselves the pleasure?the extreme, though wicked pleasure?of gossiping ubout our neigh - bor'a affairs. ? ? ? The unprecedented weather of last week and the commencement of Lent caused a great dearth of social enter? tainments: but several parties deserve attention fiom a pleasure-seeking point of view. ? ? ? Mrs. Sargeant has returned from a visit to Baltimore. ? ? ? Mrs. Neely and Mrs. Worthington are at home again, lifter a month's visit to relatives In Washing! in. Mrs. George Pollard and Miss Lunle rannlll left hist week for Petersburg, to be with their father, Cap.t. Thomas rannlll. who was taken with u stroke of paralysis on Thursday. ? ? ? Miss Fannie McDonald entertained a party of her friends Friday in u novel and attractive manner. The home of Miss McDonald's uncle, Mr. Bain, on Boush street, was brightly lighted and presented a gay scene, as about thirty-live young people gathered to spend a happy evening. The fea? ture of the evening was a dramatic charade, which was given by five young ladies in quite a successful manner, jj?tose taking part being Miss Cornelia fricBlalr, Miss Katherlne Newbill. Miss Caroline Cohn, Miss Leila Hobson and Miss Arnold Walke. After the char? ade had come to an end delightful re? freshments of a tempting nature were Berved. Among those who were pres? ent were: Miss Annie Volght, Miss Belle Heath, Misses Mary ami Fannie Boyster, Miss Kuthorlne Peebles. Miss Nancy Freeman, Miss Bonnie Whitney. Miss Elizabeth Lloyd. Miss Kate Myers, Miss Jean Cooke, Miss Mary Clarke. Miss Annie Bogers, Miss Me? lissa Payne and others. ? ? ? To the mid-winter festivities has been added the merry Jingle of sleigh bells, and Cupid often found himself third party In a sleigh especially built for two. ? ? ? Mr. and Mrs. Wllloughby Sharpe, who were the guests of Mr. and Mrs Hugh NelBon Page, on Granby street, last week, have returned to their home, in New York. ? ? * Mrs. Walter Doyle. Mrs. Robert Cooke and Mrs. Hugh Page will have next week to attend the convention of the Daughters of the American Revo? lution, which convenes in Washington ? ? ? Mrs. William Baldwin entertained the card club, of which she is a mem? ber. In a very charming manner on Monday evening. The residence of Mrs. Baldwin, on Freemason street, was brightly lighted and the warmth nnd good cheer that greeted her guests was very gratifying after the bleakness and snow without. ? ? ? The Princess Anne Hotel will open on the 22d, and on that day a banquet nnd bail will be given, when our first Amer? ican hero's name will be held as an ex? ample and put at the head of the long list of the great men who have suc? ceeded him. ? ? ? The ho? whicli was to have been given on the receiving-ship on Tuesday was indefinitely postponed on account of the unpropltlous weather. ? ? ? The ballroom at the navy-yard pre? sented a gny appearance on Monday evening, when the commandant nnd of? ficers residing in the yard tendered n hop to their friends. The Naval Post Band played all of the new dance music for tho participants, and gaily did they trip the light fantastic toe until the clock In the tower chimed the midnight hour. Very few Norfolk people were present, the weather not permitting of Buch a long Journey In evening dress, but those who did brave and elements were well repaid. ? ? ? The Alumni of the Kappa Alpha Chapter gave their annual banquet on Saturday night. The function took place at the Montlcello Hotel, and was a most delightful occasion for the mem? bers who were present. The University of Virginia, Washington and Lee, V. M. I..
