New Society Stunt
(Special to The Tlmci.)
ST. LOUIS, April 17.—Positive

the giving of "cocktail parties."
The oocktall party is a Sunday
matinee affair which originated

Mrs. Walsh introduced it last
Sunday, with the first cocktail
party In (society's history. Invi
tations wore issued to 50.
The guests were divided into
two classes, those who went to
church In the forenoon and those
who devoted their time to a mo
tor promenade of the boulevards.
Then at high noon they gathered
at the Walsh home on i.imlHl
An liiMtnut Hit.
The party scored an Instant hit.
Mrs. Walsh's home is equipped
with a private bar. Around this
the guests gathered and gave their
orders to a white coated profes
sional drink mixer who presided
behind tho polished mahogany.
If a woman guest who had been
trivial all forenoon In her limou
mii". and was a little chilled in
consequence, felt the need of a
drink with an extia kick in it, she
ordered a Snzarac co'-Utall. Oth

CHRISTIANIA, April 17.—
Germany is shortly to issue to
neutrals a statement of the terms
on which she considers peace ne
gotiable, according to rumors in
diplomatic circles today.
The reports came from sources
known to be closely identified
with the German officials' plane.
Scandinavia Is the center of
Germany's peace efforts, aimed at
Russia. That the Teutonic offi
cials are bending every effort to
realization of their hope of separ
ate peace with the new provisional
government at Petrograd is ap
parent in every quarter here.
American diplomatic officials
have been formally advised that
the German government is behind
the pseudo-socialist movement for
peace. It was the German gov
ernment that apparently started
the socialist propaganda work,
and It was the German govern
ment that pushed it by active sup
Count yon Bernstorff, prime
apostle of peace propaganda work,
has been selected as German Am
bassador to Sweden, purely in
line with this Russian effort.
Meanwhile. German propagan
dists of lesser caliber spread re
ports of Germany's desire for
peace—carefully avoiding, how
ever, any statement of terms.

In Buenos Ayres he was for a

He had never strung a wire In

hired a foreman who did know

It was a colorful experience.
"The Indians aren't really a bad
