Dean officiating, Robert Howard Norton and Mary Etta Wisemer, both of this city. The groom is connected with the firm of the Hot Springs Racket store, and the couple will make their home in this city. The Welcome Guest.—There is an art in being an acceptable house guest in the country or city home and iie welcome guest is the one who is I considerate of the hostess, is neat, prompt, helpful, not meddlesome, is refined and kind. (Here are some of the things the welcome guest will be careful to do She will notify the hostess defi nitely in advance the day and hour she expects to arrive. She will take no more trunks than neoessary. A pretty cover for her trunk would he nice to have with her. She will use her own toilet articles, even though the hostess may have supplied the guest chamber. The welcome guest ■who came for an extended visit has come prepared for hfr visit and j leaves the guest toilet articles for the ^ emergency guest who may not have , anticipated being urged to remain over night, or a few days, and so is excusably unprepared. The welcome guest, ou an extended visit, has her own cosmetics, perfumes, shoe polish, stationery, postage stamps, sewing articles, etc,, not depending on the | hostess nor borrowing from the other guests. The welcome guest uoes not feel it her duty to use all of the house marked stationery and postage stamps the hostess has thoughtfully placed in the desk. The welcome guest does not wipe off her shoes or greasy articles with , the towels of the hostess, whether they lie monogramed or not. The welcome guest does not give orders to those e». ployed about the place. A servant expects his orders to come through tlie master or mis tress, and resents any assumed au thority on the guest's part. I Whatever else the welcome guest [may do, she is always prompt for meals and always present for the family breakfast, if it is served. Tar diness at meals is extremely annoy ing to the hostess and to the serv ants. It delays and interrupts the smooth workings of the household ma chinery. The welcome guest is not the one who talks loud, awakening the entire household when she comes in late at night from some party. That is the time to remember the suggestive verse, “Her voice was ever soft, gen tle and low—an excellent thing in a woman.” She never leaves the hall lights burning al! night. The welcome guest may he ever so lively and jolly but she is not loud.'' in dress nor lias she boisterous man ners. She knows gentility is bespo ken ifi that certain quiet dignity which bespeaks elegance and refine ment. She does not embarrass her refined hostess by being too familiar with the gentlemen guests or in try ing to monopolize their attention from other lady guests. She never strews her books, wraps papers, etc., about and continually leaves them in the parlor or on the piazza or lawn, marring their neat ness. She npver invites any one to re main to a meal without consulting the wishes of the hostess. She does not talk about her rela tives’ perfectly trained children when the hostt-ss lias one or more incor rigihles in her family. She does not talk of how success ful other people are in the very things wherein she knows the host or host ess has failed to succeed—along business lines. She lends a helping hand in various ways. Perhaps there are servants to do the actual work of the place if the home is that of wealthy people, but there are various ways even then where one can help. Once when a guest in a home of that kind, it Was my pleasure to go every morning to the flower garden in the hostess' stead, gather lovely roses and arrange them for the dining table, library, parlor, etc. Another guest sat at the piano play, iug for the assembled guests who often sang while the hostess was free to go and come, joining us or slip ping out to supervise some house hold detail. It was helpful to the hostess also when we sometimes entertained her child and his friends with stories or games. Many a rainy day indoor* was made pleasant for all in that way and many a night the hoy dropped off to sleep to dream of "Uncle Ke rn us and Iin»r Rabbit,” which was be ing told until drowsy eyelids drooped. If visiting a friend who is without servants, the welcome guest is quick to assist altout washing dishes, tidies her own room, and helps In various ways, making her visit a joy and a blessing to that household. If there are servants, she remem bers them, if able, before her depati ure with gifts, either of money or some suitable souvenir. She leaves behind no unpaid bills of laundry, telephone or express charges. She returns all calls possible paid her by her hostess’ lady friends; also, pays her party calls. If suddenly called away, or the weather, or some accident, prevents her returning the calls, she mails before departing, he* visiting card to each one to whom she owes the courtesy of a call Should Bhe he pressed for time, she may arrange with her hostess to at tend to this matter for her. She never stays a day longer than the time she was invited for, though she may leave a day sooner. She never complains about ths weather, remembering that the hosts were not responsible for the weather which may, or may not, have been propitious for her various social en gagements. She has the happy faculty of for getting any little unpleasant domestic affairs or relations she may have no ticed. I ast, hut by no means least, she will be sure to write a nice letter to the hostess after leaving, telling of her safe arrival (if safe) ^nd thank ing her for the kindness, courtesy and hospitality shown her during her visit in the home of her friend or ac quaintance. She will not forget to send a courteous message to others of the household and certainly a kind one to the servants who ministered to her needs while there. POEM TO A HOT SPRINGS GIRL. The following beautiful poem, “On a Picture” was written to a well known Hot Springs woman. Although the peom was printed In one of the leading newspapers and in one, or more, magazines it has never before been told that its in spiration was a Hot Springs girl. S>he had represented this city in a big social function in a large Southern city and her picture had appeared in one of the largest South ern dailies and in a well-known magazine. (She had allowed an admirer, a gentleman friend, to retain the photograph after a newspaper cut had been made from it. Months after she requested the re turn of her photograph and was pleasantly surprised to find the fol lowing beautiful lines scribbled in pencil on the ordinary wrapping paper encasing the photograph. She still has the original copy of the poem and the photograph. The author of the poem is a well known writer, being considered one of the most brilliant newspaper editorial writers in the United States. ON A PICTURE. (By M. W. C.) (il,ines enclosed with tlip photo graph of a young lady, which was returned to her for reasons eminent ly satisfactory to the young lady.) For da?s I’ve watched this picture— days of my vacation Watched it in the morning, watch ed it in the night: Plead with it, unceasingly, prayed prayed for mere probation; Yearned for a reversal of the withering blight. Face of mystic -goodness, terrific in its beauty, Powerful in its purity, poignant in its truth; . Face of shining soul-beams, of loyal ty and duty, How’ it quails and qualms me, without rue or ruth! Could those eyes but penetrate my soul's deep recesses And see the warring elements with which my heart is filled, Surely some compassion for what me so distresses Would be felt: and surely, ttie tumult would be stilled. Face of smiles beatified! Why that tinge of sadness Flitting like a summer cloud around your lips and eyes? iDurst a grewRome sentiment miti gate your gladness? Durst untoward circumstance mix your songs with sighs? Strange that while I watch you sense of sting or stain or sin ning Comes not to mar the pleasure of my enraptured soul. An Angel with a flaming sword lias stood from the beginning To drive all evil from you ami pro tect your sacred goal. Cruel Is the fate that drove an in (fluence so strength'ning From me and my weakness when 1 needed it so much; Sad to think of trooping years, with their shadows lengDh’ning, Breaking on me gloomily, while I'm deprived of such. Kismet! And yet, if Galatea-like you'd quicken And leap to life before me, Pyg. malion I would be. Iiut no! Kismet! Such thoughts can merely sicken And emphasize Pain's triumph and insatiate victory. I’ll send you hence and far away and never more behold you. My loss is something 1 never have deserved. Get you gone, sweet symbol, while memories dear enfold you— Memories that all time and change will ever find preserved, -o Musical Program Majestic Hotel. Walter L. Gain, Director.
