Each of them contained six chairs. They were reached by two white cloth-covered steps. Between the entrances to the boxes were squares of blue with a big white ro sette in their centers. The staga at the farther end was niade a convenitne place to sit ouf dances It was reached by a pas sageway between two of the boxes and then up a short flight of steps and made an ideal rdace for that purposo with palms and small bay trees placed about at intervals In sure-enough gar den style. The committee boxes were construot ed at the e:id near the entrance, just at the left of the entrance. They offer ed the only note that was out of har mony with the general color scheme. Instead of the blue fronts which the other boxes had these were decorated in green. The grand march, which had been planned to start promptly at 9:15 was some minutes late. It was just 9;r.O when, after a preliminary program of music, Weil's orchestra struck up the measured beats for the grand march. Then David Daggett, the general man ager of the ball and Mrs. Horace L. Wells, the president of the Woman's Exchange, for the benefit of which the affair was held, walked out upon the floor and led the march once around the hall. With a flourish of muslo the orches tra struck up for the first two-step of the Charity Subscription hall of 1908 the tune o "Ia Kraquette." Then followed terj dances. After the tenth dance supper was served In the boxes by Caterer Fleming with characteris tic eclat, A cup or two of black cof fee and the rest did wonders with the slightly drooping spirits of the dancers and it was with renewed vigor that they went at it again, whirling away the dizzy miles with ten more dances until the wee snnll hours this morn ing. The barn dances were reserved for the after supper series. But they were not by any means the only novel steps that, were Introduced. Many of the couples danced the so-called "two-step-waltz" with great success. At 2.30 to the strident calls of the coachmen on Court street the hacks and private liveries dashed up to the long ",T" shaped awning, received again their precious social lights with their torn dresses and tired eyelids, and whirled, them away again. The ball was over. Tho best the managers for 1!W can hope to do is to equal the success of last night.

Historical crepe with white net I white eni- At a. meeting of the New Haven Historical society last night a paper entitled "An Almost Forgotten New Haven Institution," was read by Rev. Dr. Charles Ray Palmer. Before Dr. Palmer was introduced the business of the last meeting was reviewed and the donation of a por trait of the late Lynde Harrison was made by his wife. A brief review of his life was given, which did full Jus tice to his prominence and his life's work. The Rev. Dr. Palmer's lecture was one of great Interst to those Interest ed in the history of this city and spiced his talk with some very amus ing little anecdotes. This school was founded by Prof. Ethan A. Andrews and was located on the east side of Woostcr Square, the same building later being the Russell school. The name of this was the Young Ladies' Institute. Over two hundred scholars attended this school during Its two years of life, among whom eighteen different states of the union were represented. An' Informal reception was held at the close of the reading. About Half Price. a To reduce my large stock of fine fur coats, neck-pieces and muffs, I am offering them at about half-price. Friend E.
