They are a means of enjoyment Lawn Party. to both the younger and elder element, as music is the real and only universal language understood in some 'form by all ages, conditions and nationalities, and the most influencing of any art. Was it Shakespeare or George Cohan who said, The man who hath no music in his heart nor is moved by concord of sweet sounds is fit for stratagems, trea sons and spoils?" That doesn't sound much like George, so it must have been he other fellow. At any rate there are very few people who don't like music or are unmoved by it, especially band music, which witn its wind and brass instruments can interpret the music of Sousa, Cohan, Neil, Moret and the other modern composers that please the mod ern ear. urcnestras, witn their stringed nstruments, are, of course, best suited to sentimental and romantic airs like Nevins' slow waltzes, ballads and over- tines like one hears between curtain waits in the big theatres. This sort of music appeals' to the "remembrance emotions," the great composers and managers say, who divide audionces of music intd three classes of people: Those who enjoy music because it ap peals to their memory and sentiment, as "Annie Laurie," "Dixie," and 'Home, Sweet Home" appeals to elder folks on account of the sentiment awak ened; those who are inspired by the rythme of music as dancing peopte are the summons of musical chimes from the dining room an ice course in the pink and white colors was served, and during the evening Misses Tauline Cald well and Ruth Walters dispensed pink frappe from an enticing cosy corner Miss Caldwell wore blue marquisette over blue satin ; Miss Grace Lewis, white lace over pink; Miss Corinne Lewis, a pink longerie dress, and Miss Peacock a white embroidery. and those who like it because of the science and system in it and the value of every note and phrase, such as music teachers and music critics. The second class of people must really enjoy music best of all. It is the love of young peo ple for amusement, expression, rytbme and dancing that fina'lly brings music to any community, and music is atonic for any kind of ill. If the noisy element do not make Miss Jessie Whitesell was the hostess of a delightfully appointed lawn party given in honor of the Misses Cary and Miss Shields, of Cairo, and Miss Anna L. Anderson, of Columbus, Wednesday evening. The broad lawn was brilliantly lighted by clusters of Japanese lanterns hanging on the tree1), under which were conversationally aitanged comfortable seate. The inspiring scene was height ened by the presence of a large orches; tra, composed of over fifteen pieces. Games were the events of the evening. Prizes were captured by Miss Annie Laurie Caldwell, a beautiful picture by Fisher, and Seid Waddell, a pearl- handled knife. After the games de lightful refreshments were served, con sisting of fruit punch and iced cream and cake. On Thursday evening Miss Virginia Swigeart entertained for the same vis itors, and on Friday evening a dance in the Elks Home will given in their honor.. Visiting Girl.
