MRS CUMING'S ' PRETTY DANCING PARTY Mm nmt Wnmrn A Veil Known In tlin Hinnrl World rrnmUr * for tlio Moil lirlltlnnt Wrrk Hlnra the Holiday The Inner circles of socloty have boon nr- rayed In two factions slnco Iho charming ro- coptlon at the MlllarO , ono slilo contending thnt calls should bo mndo upon all the ladles whoso names appeared In the tnvltntlon , while thn ether faction I Just as positive that only those who are personally known nnd with whom cards have boon exchanged , nhould bo callca upon. TUB Bun has boon Importuned to glvo its opinion as to what Is correct form In the promUm. Whllo It Is not the Intention of ttm paper to antagonize these who hold to the former idea still tlioro appears to bo only ono com mon sonsa vlo\v to talto of what is really an Important question. Socloty usages nro based upon common sense and peed brooding , they aim to boa re flex of the nlguost educational Ufa and of that Innate rollnomont wbicb is so necessary tote to the wall being of the social system. Whore thrco or ( our Inil'oi ' Join in a rocoo- tlon and invitations uro sent out containing the names of those wbo will roccivo , it Is quite safe in presuming that previous to the issuance of the Invitations each lady prepared a list of those whom she desired to aonor.nnd that the lists were revised In order that names should not bo duplicated. Quests therefore have to look to those with whom they have oxchnncod cards or calls for the honor of the invitation and it narrows Itself down to those with whom the entertained are acquainted. Hud the ladles unknown , to thosa invited , enclosed their own visiting cards with the invitation , it would have boon an unpardona ble broach of gontla breading not to have called upon them nftnr the reception , lor n card sent with an invitation U the equivalent .of a personal visit , so regarded everyvvhero on this and the ether sldo of the wntor. None oi the ladles , however , did this , and to these parsons hav ing only the acquaintanceship of ono or moro of tbo ladles , who rccolvod , notwithstanding an introduction was had , during the bourn of the function , with all the hostesses , the course to uo pursued Is very clear , yea call upon these with whom you have exchanged calls and courtesies In the past. Cards also should have been loft , not for all the ladius receiving , but for these who were personally known to you , for within tbo meaning of so- cletv the reception was given by your friends , while the ether ladles wcro simply assisting in receiving. * Jack went out to dinner the ether night nnd ho cama homo mildly dolightcd because , ns.lio said , "people were beginning to learn something at lust and dinners were begin ning to bo mode Interesting and enjoyable at tbo expense of conventionality. " , The roiLioii for all this approbation , it was found out afterwards , was the unusual fact that nftor ilrst asking the permission of the ladles the host had ordered the cigarette ? to bo served with the Roman punch , and with everybody dt the table tbo men stroked and enjoyed ih'jinsolvcs. Sometimes , Jack says , ho understands tbo ladles Indulge , too. and ho suys It was very funny to watch the .changeable * expressions of'tho girls as the cigarettes wora passed to each ono in turn They all t'ecllnod , of course , for it has not yet growu to bo considered u propriety'over hero for women to smoke , although now and ' then you hear of u charming toto-a-toto being brightened by cigarette smoke. # , Apropos of this pleasant dinner and the cigarettes , it Is told of a smart young woman aud a young Danker that they were missed .from a ball room recently , arid the young worrian's 'alter ego wont in search of tbo truant. The couple were found sitting on the stairway < dimly lighted by the hall Ilghtsmoklng cigar ettes for dear llfo , and seemingly having the most , companionablu time In the world. An other man took tbo fair Phryno to task about cutting tnc dance with htm , and remarked that ho understood she was with the young banker enjoying a nocturnal puff. The young woman , who was mildly criticized by the disappointed swain , intimated tbat she Itnow her business and tbat an underatand- inn- bad been reached between the banker and herself , which remark has been variously construed , and from this incident tbo an nouncement of an engagement Is likely to follow the Lenten lull. Thus cigarettes pluy ' ' no inconsequential part in some lives. Socially the week past has boon "delight fully quiet , " as ono young woman expressed it , the pace of the week previous having been too fast for the thoroughbredsevidentlytheir determination to "bldo a Woo" being tanta mount to a declaration of capitulation from the fortresses which they have occupied so long. rink Curd Tarty. ' Mrs. L. J. Drake , 534 Park avenue , is a charming hostess ; she U thoughtful and con- aidoruto and living in ono of the beautiful homes of Omaha , bor entertainments are Always delightful , for with o very thing at hand , entertaining resolves Itself into a question of adaptability and affability.

Iho most Interesting musical event thnt has transpired within the past low weeks was the delightful recital given yostordav nftcrnoon at the residence of MM. W. J. Connell by the celebrated pianist MUs Ncnlly Stevens. This eminent ni list visited us nt the invitation of the Ladlos' Musical society. Her program consisting of fourteen very choice number * was faultlessly ren dered and enthusiastically received. The opening number "Toconto nnd Fiigtio" ( Bach-Tntisslg ) wus certainly the heaviest plcco of lha evening , Inasmuch ns it required great technical ability and breadth ot style ; It was given In n true muslclanlv style and with faultless execution. Her Interpretation of the Beethoven sonatas , op. 31 and 110 , showed her cultured Intimacy with the Beethoven school , Tbo manner In which she treated the com positions of Chopin , Raff , Schumann nnd Jndnssohn , showed clearly the versatility of her high musical tnlont. In the "Caprice Ushngnol" she seemed to bo completely carried away oy Inspiration , duo perhaps to the fact that this , picco was dedicated to her by the great master , Aloszkowskl ; it was played wltn true Spanish abandon aud comp'lotoly captivated the audience. The other selections worthy of particular mention were Von Bulow's "La Carzona- tura , " nnd LUzt's "Tarantella" ( Vonezla o Napoll ) . In the course of an Interostln ? con versation with AlUs Stevens wo were gratl- llcd to find thnt she was very well pleased with her reception , and felt as though she wor.o now almost n resident of Omaha. She basJust returned from n successful tour through the south , playing In Memphis. Now Orleans , Atlanta , Indianapolis and Texas. She Is now on her western lour nnd expects to visit , nmongst other places , Denver , Atchi- sou , Topeka , Lawrence nnd Kansas City ; on the completion of her western trip she will visit' tbo Noiv England states. Miss Stevens will always bo welcomed in our midstas nn artist of high standing ; pos sessed with imiqh naturnl talent , and taught by sufch ? masters as Moskowskl , Von Bulow nud Liszti with whom she was a special fn- vorlto ; stio Is destined to bo ono of the mosr ronowncd'nrllsts that this country lias ovot ' produced ; u 5KM Never' in the history of Omaha has the onward mnrch of music been so deeply felt by all classes of the community as at present This hrt Is'dally becoming 'more appreciated und is Increasing rapidly in strength , aud It scorns as though tbo elder patrons , instead of resting on their oars , have brought further energy und zeal Into their olTorts nnd. en thused by the recognition of their work as well' as by tbo co-operation of the rising gen eration of sympathisers , they have determ ined to do every thing possible to keep up the musical1 standard of this otherwise well known , city. , Thcro , is a glorious chance to make Oniatia the koy-noto of the great west , imd.lt can assuredly bo done by the nnion of individual persevering effort. On ' 'Thursday' evening , February Jl , the Apollo club proposes to provide n treat for these tvho are fortunate enough to bo sub scribers. tn addition to the attraction pro- son ted at this concert , in having tbo baritone roles In "Fair Ellon" and "Tho Enchanted Swans" entrusted to the ronounea Ludwtg , the club ha-s secured the services of Airs. Alurrav of-Chlcago , the well known harpist , and Mrs. Emma Backhus-Bohr of Kansas City , wbo has already made an enviable rop- uta'tlon as a pianist. Air. Ludwlg has boon prevailed upon to glvo a song recital ou the afternoon following the concert , so that these who are uiiablo to attend tbo concert may have an opportunity to hoar this celebrated artist. In VFair Ellon" tbo solo work has boon allotted to Mra. Wakofleld , un Omaha vocal Ut of note , and it U. understood that Airs. jCotton , Airs.

" ' Omaha' U about to los'ofora tlmo oao of hortn6st faithful , enorcctle and promising musicians. Air. J. E. Butler , who b"as for a long tlmo been organist and choirmaster of Tiiuity cathedral , bus been advised bv bis ocullst\to glvo up all work for a time. Ills eyes have begun to tell him the sad file that nature conquers art and that in his devotion to muslo and in his close study he has over taxed his powers of vision. After consulta tion with eminent oculists bo finds that ho must rest altogether if ho would preserve bis sight. Mrs. J. W. Cotton , who has boon a co-worker with him in his present sphere , talks of giving a complimentary concert as n token of sympathy and appreciation of past services. If she will do this she will un doubtedly havo1 the assistance of every musician in the city. The "Philomela quartette" has been engaged - gaged .to sing at a musical to be given at the residence of Alra. Cornish on South Tenth street , in nld of St. Matthias Episcopal church. ' Jpbo , date of the musical has bueii sot for February 4. This quartette consists of Alls. Sundorland ( bettor known ns Miss Georgia Boulter ) , Miss Clara Ctarkson , Miss Bishop and Mrs , Moollor. Their work nt Mrs. Cotton's recital on Thursday ovculng was decidedly pood. The "Ariel" ' quartette of Boston U ex pected to sing at the Young Men's Christlau association concert hall on February 18. They nro assisted by John Thomas , humorist , nnd Mr. Woltbr Pick , pianist. This prom ises to bo highly entertaining.

It is always interesting to hoar of the suc cess of Umahu pupils , especially so wbcu they make a "hit" In Now York. AJUs Lotha Cook'o' Blair , who will bo remembered as a pupil of Airs.

The members of tbo examination comnuUoo were enthusiastic ever Aliss Cook's voice , declar ing it was perfectly placed , aud paying thereby a high compliment to her toacber. Such , on endorsement us llin , coming un sought , mutt he very gratifying to Mrs. Cotton , Inasmuch as it bears strong testimony as to the excellence of bor method. Alls. L. A. Torrons. who for some months past has been studying iu Now York , has left that citv for Boston whcro sbo resumes her work of acquiring perfect vocalization , Her former work will secure for her a cor dial reception on her leturu to Omaha. There are whisperings as to the possibility of Inducing tbo great and only Paderewskl tovlMt us. Why cannot some music-lover who has spare time on baud take the matter up and astonish the musical world of Omutia by tbo advent of thU gonius.
