RAND OPERA night was. «•<
course, the crowning event in
Boise's social history; and that
the city was true to its tradi
tion as the fashion center of
the state (however it may have ap
peared from the stage), was obvious
enough to local theater-goers. As to
the attendance, never before were there
so many people who would have been
glad to have found standing room, even
in the lobby. Looking over the great
audience facing the stage with its
beautiful Japanese setting, sensing the
rapture of Puccini's glorious music and
given a view of lovely women in pretty
gowns, the scene was bright enough to
have graced a larger city. Some de
lightful affairs were given by a uum
ber of hostesses during the week, the
Misses Shoup being much entertained,
and many guests were welcomed at tlie
week end for the evening of opera.
Delightful Bridge Tea.
Mrs. S. H. Hays was one of the
hostesses of the week, giving a
lightful bridge tea on Wednesday for
the Misses Shoup, with a group of their
former Boise friends as the other
guests. The table was pretty with
mahogany colored tulips. Miss Mar

The Boise Music Festival.
The successful bringing: to Boise of a
musical, organization of such distin

tial step in the way of securing the

secretary. Under* the auspices of this
committee the "Boise Music Festival"
was given; and while this feast of mu
sic, of dancing and of scenic splendor
was enjoyed for one evening only, that
evening included so much of delight to
eye and ear and emotion; it was so
full of interest and beauty and the
marvel of being, as to yield a treasure
house of joy from which we may draw
inspiration for many days to come.
