SOCIETY J .«»■ The floral progressive party tendered M iss Wanner of Chicago hy Mrs. and Miss Bliss last Tuesday afternoon was one of the most beautiful and elegant entertainments of the season. Many were confused in trying to find so many words composed of the letters in the simple "Violet." To recall in a lim ited time names of artists, books, gen erals, etc., in which "Rose" appeared, was no easy task. A large card thickly covered with pictures of different flow crs whose names were to be guessed, exposed the uhfamiliarity with the most beautiful of Nature's plants. At another table transposed le'tershad to lte arranged correctly to form names of rare flowers. The novelty of the games caused the greatest interest to lie taken. Miss Susie McBee having writ ten the greatest number of correct an swers, was given a bouquet of roses and ferns. The house was decorated with cut flowers and pot plants in a most tasteful manner. Miss Nettie Watson served punch in the reception hall. After the games the guests were invited into the dining room where they enjoyed the elaborate refreshments served in four courses. The score cards were beautiful souvenirs, being white cards decorated with ferns from the Himalayan mountains. Miss Nettie Watson entertained the Whist Club Wednesday a. m. with one of its most pleasant meetings.
