THE PATTERSON-LORIHG RECEPTION
And Other Evente that gave Amusement to
the Belles and Beaui.
PERT1REIT PERSONAL P0IKÎS.
Around th« ball the Ught shon# down
Oo half the beauty of the town,
On swaying, perfumed multitudes,
That rustled like the summer woods;
And my own well-belored was there,
And wore a white roue in her hair.
NE of the largest
and moat elegant
social entertain
ment» given in
this vicinity for
years was the re
ception tendered
Miss Lucie S. Hart,
of Clarksburg, on Thursday evening last,
at Mooumeut Place, out the National road;
by Mrs. Andrew Patterson and Misses
Minnie and Lucie Loring. Major Lor
ing's mansion and the beautiful Patterson
cottage were both thrown open for the
eutertainment of the guests, all of whom
enjoyed a delightful season . of aociaJ
amusement. Carriages began arriving
as early as £:3U o'clock, and
as they rolled softly up the drive their
occupants could not fail to notice the
beauty of the sceue. Toe lovely harvest
moon hail just risen in all its splen
dor, casting a soft radiance over the
earth, while Japanese lanterns scat
tered about the park, lent additional charm
to the eye. The guests were received in
the mansion by Mrs. M:ijor Loring, Miss
Lucie Hart aud Miss Lucie Loriug, while
Mftj. Patterson, assisted by Mrs. A. S.
Howell and Miss Minnie Loring, re
ceived in the cottage. Both houses
were ablaze with light, and inside the
brilliance and beauty of the scene was be
yond description. In one end of the large
ball room of the mansiou the Opera Houso
orchestra was stationed, and as the music
tilled the apartment, fair ladies and gal
lant men gracefully went through the
figures of the lanciers or glided over the
waxed floor in the enchanting measures of
the waltze, while the hum of voices, the soft
glow of the lights and the faint perfume
of flowers that hung on the night
breezes aud stole in through windows aud
doors, lent a fascination to the senses that
was delightful. The parlors, corridors and
park aflorded promenaders excellent op
portunity to indulge in those little tete-a
' tetes that are so enjoyable on such occa
sions. A carpe ted walk led irom one house
to the other, and the guests took advant
age of the hospitalities of l»oth. At the
cottage cards was the feature, aud an ex
citing game of progressive euchre was play
ed, the winners of which were presented
with handsome prix,es. Both houses were
beautifully decorated with flowers and
plauts, which were artistically
arranged. There were about one hundred
and fifty guests, the elite of Wheeling and
vicinity, present, among whom were sev
eral visitors to the city. The costumes of
the ladles were beautiful and rich beyond
description while the gentlemen were at
tired in full evening dress. At 12 o'clock
elegant refreshments were served by Mrs.
Ziegenfelder, which wero huartily appre
ciated, and at J o'clock the guests l»egan
1 to depart reluctantly from the
scene of gaiety. It was a memorable eveut
and those who were fortunate enough to
be present will long remember the pleas
ures experienced on the occasion. The
hostesses were the recipients of many con
gratulations on the taste and elegance with
which everything was arranged, and the
delightful manuur the affair passed off.

of such a brilliant social success.

in the evening the Opera House band ten
dered him a serenade, and were invited
into the house, where a large number of
guests had assembled for the purpose of
making the occasion a merry one, and
right well they succeeded. The evening
was passed in a delightful manner, in a
stood old-lashioned way, aud when supper
was announced the guests were in good ap
petite to thoroughly enjoy the bounteous
collation spread before them. A number
of toasts were drunk to Mr. Revmann and
his family, and he was the recipient of

A False Humor.
A rumor was iu circulation yesterday to
the effect that au accident bad occurred at
tiie Elson Glass Works, in Martin's Ferry,

Tony I'astor I.ast Evening.
I.ong before the doors opened at the Opera
House last evening, theeutranoe. aud pave
ment iu front of the house were filled with
a crowd of anxious pushing humanity, all
wanting to get near the l>o.v office, iu order
to be thetirst inside and secure good seats.
Atter tl|e doors opeued a constant stream of
people kept passing in until the amli
troiuui was well Tilled and the gab
lery was packed. And It may be
said with perfect truth that not
a persou left the house dissatisfied with the
least pleasing part of the performance, if
that part could l»e found. Messrs Leopold
and Bunnell gave a clever musical act:
Hi »es aud Remington presented "Our
Railraad Hoarders," and "took the house"
liy their specialties; Mr. Ifarry Morris, an
old favorite, reucwed his acquaintance with
his Wheeling trieuds, and was honored
with many recalls; Mr. John F. Byrnes
and Miss Hellene contributed a pleasing
sketch, and Mr. Bryues' crayon work was
especially cqmmnedcd. Mr. Paster sung
three songs that brought down the house.
TheE lectric Three won a fair share of the ap
plausc. The Dare Brothers g:ive one of
ihf.' hest acrobatic and horizontal bar acts
ever given in this ».ity. Stewart Dare, who
is minus one leg, and|is particularly act
ive and supple, performs a number of feats
which at first seem to be muscular im
possibilities. and Thomas S. Dare made a
really funuy and agile clown. The far
cial afterpiece introduced nearly all the
company and made a laughable ending to a
very enjoyable performance. The show,
taken in its entirety, is one of the most
complete and satisfactory. The company
is one of the best Mr. Pastor ever brought
to Wheeling. It is understood that next
season he will introduce a comedy, which
is said to be very, very funny.
Circuit Court,
In Part II,of the Circuit Court yesterday,
Judge Boyd heard the argument in a
Chancery case, and the court adjourned
till Monday morrnpg. In Part I, Jndge
Jacobs sentenced Lizzie Williams to twenty
days in the county jail. In this part the
State vs. Dr. Fonuer will be put on trial,
Monday morning.
Struck an Old Man.
William Lavelle yesterday morning got
drunk, and running across Richard Brad
ley, an old gentleman, struck him over
the head with a heavy cane, knocking him
down and cutting several bad gashes in his
scalp. He was arrested by Officer West,
and appeared before His Honor at the
matinee yesterday afternoon, and was
fined $20 and costs and sent to the work
house tor thirty days in default of payment.
Minstrel* This Week.
On Tuesday evening next McNisb,
Johnson & Slavins' Minstrels will appear
at the Opera House in one of their refined
performances. They were here last season
and all who saw the entertainment were
highly pleased. This year they come
greatly strengthened, and, judging from
the comments of the press all over the
country, they are excelled by no company
on thffroad. Seats on sale Monday morn
ing at Baumer's.
"Silver Spur."
To-morrow evening that delightful com
edy-drama "Silver Spur," will be presen
ted at the Grand Opera House by a fine
company-of which the charming little ac
tress and Wheeling favorite Blanche Vau
ghn, Is the star.
The piece took immensely here last year
and the prospects are tliat it will have a
big run the whole week this season, and
all lovers of the play should see it. Re
served seats are on sale at Shield's music
store.

The Home Team Again Down» the I)u
quuMieii in Fine Shape.
In spite of the additions the Duquesne
club had in yesterday's game they were
agniu outplayed at all point* hy the home
team. J. (i. Smith of Pittsburgh made his
ap|>earance in the box for the local club,
and had the visitors completely at his !
mercy, only two hits being made oft' his
delivery. The fielding erroos were about
equally divided the home nine having six
against the visitors se von. Cons id
ering the fact that he never faced
Smith before Wright caught a good
game. Dudley, S. White and Xichol
fielded in fine form. Gray at third, did
the best work for the visitors, while Os
boru's work iu the points was a decided
improvement on the visitors' pitching of the
day before. The attendance was again
very poor, and the home team came out
behind financially. The Duquesne have
had a fairly good reputation,and theWheel
ing nine engaged them thiukiujg they eould
play much stronger ball tlian they showed
up, consequently the home team cannot be
blamed for arranging games with a known
Weak club. There will probably be a
gaine at the reunion Thursday, between
the Zanesville club and the home nine,
and Stcubenville will play the following
Saturday. Mr. Smith, whose effective
work in the box was much admired, will
remain here for the next few weeks and
give the Wheeling club the benefit of his
services. Following is the score in lull:

NOTES ON WHEELMEN.
A Fine Tour Through Virginia by Dr.
Mason and John Topping.
A DESCRIPTIOI OF THE RIDE.
Other Items of Local Interest to Lovere of
the Wheel,
POT ID PERT1HEHT PARAGRAPHS.
j» H E bycicle
tour taken by
Dr. C. E. Ma
son and Mr.
John Topping
through Vir
ginia, proved
to be a most
delightful one
and the gun"
tlemen have
returned with
glow in g ac
count of the
sport. The
following de
f scri p t io n of
ri "<• rfj t h e tour
written by Mr. Topping, will no doubt
interest all our readers, especially the
friends of the bycicle.
Leaving Wheeling, says Mr. Topping,
via the B. & 0., at 5 p. w., we arrived at
Harpers Ferry for early breakfast. After
liaviug taken in the historical points and
>ther places of interest, we mounted our
wheels at 11:3U o'clock, and wheeled to
Winchester, "î*2 miles distant for supper.
This carried us over the rough part of the
valley pike, and into a country where bi
cycling could be indulged in to perfection
rhe ride from here on to New Market was
& succession of miles of beautiful country,
fine roads and good hotels.
About six hours cach day was spent in
riding, and the remainder of the time de
voted to sight seeing and the enjoyment of
that hospitality that only Virginians know
how to show. From New Market to
Luray, where the wonderful caverns are
located, a distance of about twenty clastic
miles, we encountered some very bad
roads. Climbing the Massoueld Moun
tains which were four miles high, and from
whose summit the Blue Ridge mountains
were seen towering above the cloud*, the
scenery and the two hours spent in the
caverns at Luray. fully compensated us for
the weary ride of fort}' miles. Mounting
our wheels at New Market, the ride to
Staunton was all a wheelman could ask for.
At Harrisburg we had the pleasure ol
meeting Dr Ta tu m, a brother of Mr.
Peebles Tatum of this city, of whose kind
attention we were the recipients. At
Charles town we also met an old Wheeling
bov, Mr. Heiskell, son of Capt. Heiskell.
From Staunton the Natural Bridge of
Virginia was visited, and after a vain at
tempt to find the niches wherein the am
bitious youth had placed his feet to climb
to fame, and carve his name nljovethe list,
the Doctor determined the party should
not be disappointed, and proved to ride
his wheel up the side (as only a Wheeling
wheelman could, ) ami then eclispe the
man who jumped oft'Brooklyn Bridge, by
coasting trom the dizzy height of 200 feet,
to the rocks below. He no doubt would
have succeeded had lie not l>een prevented
by the little wheel ofhis machine, running
up his back and becoming tangled in his
hair. Returning to Staunton we crossed
the mountains to Charlottesville ami on to
Richmond, traveling through country
never before traveled by bicycle.
The roads were found to be bad,
auil the lirst night had to be passed in the
woods at the home of a farmer. The ac
commodations were what the l>oys would
call tough. A garret to sleep in, hot
bread, bacon and weak coffee for breakfast.
The next day, although attended with
many difficulties in the way of sand and
mud, necessitating about twenty-flvo miles
of walking, was spent good humoredly.
The natives never having seen a bicycle,
created much sport for us. We were gazed
upon as peculiar beings. I was asked if we
had been out long, and could not resist the
opportunity to say that we bad been away
so long that we had outgrown our clothes,
ind in proof of the assertion called atten
tion to the length of the doctor's pants,
After having a royal welcomo by tho old
Dominion Club at Richmoud, we boarded
the train for old Point Comfort, where we
net the L. A. W. and joined them in hav
ing a good time surf-bathing and sight
teeing. The party here broke up. the
Joctor going to Norfolk, returning home
via Washington and Pittsburgh, and I
^oingto Baltimore, thence home.
Wheel Note*.
E. P. Baird a member of the Orange
Wanderers.and hulderof tho 10 mile bicycle
-oad record of America, was In town Tues
luy, and t4»ok a moonlight spin over the
Wheeling-West Alexander route. He pro
nounces it fine, and a ride that the Wheel
ing wheelmen should feel proud of. Mr.
Baird is a line fellow and makes a jolly
companion on the road.
