SOCIETY - page 5
past week has been one of disparagement to the society editor.
All club meetings were suspended on account of the fair and most of
the ladies were too busy either with departments at the fair or in
attendance to do their usual entertaining. But one function of
importance is recorded, taht of the luncheon given by Mrs. O. V.
Allen in honor of her cousin, Miss Henstock. It is
expected that next week will be a gay one in the social world, which
not only the coming of the frosty weather will bring, but the
time-honored Hallowe'en. There will doubtless be many parties
on this night, both small ones and more pretentious ones which clubs
and other organizations will give.
The largest social affair of the
week was the luncheon given Saturday afternoon by Mrs. O. V.
Allen and her daughter, Marguerite, in honor of Mrs.
Allen's cousin, Miss Henstock, of Portland. Pink
carnations were the flowers used in the decoration of the home for
the occasion. Five hundred was the game of the afternoon.
The guests were Misses Grigsby, Booth, Cohen, Purrell, Dawson,
Nourse, Korts, Chrisman, Gooding, Fofnet, Trenchard, Twiggs, Weil,
Helfrich, Lemp, Marks, Howard, Cox, Salee, Branstetter, White,
Kaufman, Margeruite Allen, Mrs. Ormand Booth, Miss Norris of
Tacoma and Miss McCrum of Laverne.
Rev. and Mrs. Lamartine A. Hall
announce the coming marriage of their daughter, Ester Mary,
to Karl Hale Dixon on the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 10, at
Hyde Park Baptist Church, Chicago. Mr. Dixon is well
known in the journalistic circle in the "Windy City," and during the
present campaign has been in charge of the press bureau at the
Republican state headquarters.
One of the most pleasant teas of this
season will be the annual tea of the Doctor's Daughters Friday
afternoon. The hostesses will be Mrs. Frank Nourse and
Mrs. J. T. Marrison and the tea will be given at the home of
the president of the organization, Mrs. Morrison. The
purpose of the tea is for the benefit of St. Luke's hospital, the
children's ward of this institution receiving special attention from
these ladies. The public is cordially invited to aid in this
work and the Doctor's Daughters would be pleased to have a large
attendance at the tea on Friday afternoon.
A pleasing musical program has been prepared in which
Miss Brackle, violinist; Mr. Ensign, vocalist, and
Mr. Erwin, pianist, have consented to appear. The program
will begin at 3 o'clock. At 2:30 there will be a short
business meeting at which the news members especially are urged to
The irrepressible Younger Set Dancing
club is planning a ghost party for Friday night. Their regular
club night coming on Hallowe'en, gives a wide scope for these young
people, and some of the leading member of the club have been seen in
close consultation with Professor Breach resulting in a rumor
that he has purchased the entire crop of a certain ranch near the
city for decorative purposes.
Bobbing for apples, jumping over the Hallowe'en candles
and all kinds of Hallowe'en fun are contemplated in connection with
the regular dance program.
An interesting event in
social circles is the advent of Miss Millie Schloth, who
comes to take the position of instructress of of Professor Breach's
Dancing academy. Miss Schloth is a graduate of the
Hinman School of Dancing of Chicago and comes highly recommended
from that city. Besides giving instruction in dancing, Miss
Schloth has an enviable reputation as an athlete, being a
swimmer of note, and paying close attention to and teaching the art
of fencing, gymnastics, the Swedish movements and all tings
appertaining to the physical development of the body.
Professor and Mrs. C. O. Breach announce an
informal reception to be held in their hall on Monday evening next
from 8:30 to 10 o'clock for the purpose of enabling pupils and their
friends to meet Miss Schloth. Professor Breach's
orchestra will be in attendance and the public are cordially invited
to be present.
The Cotillion club will
hold its first party of the series on Tuesday night next. This
party was postponed on account of fair week and the club members are
looking forward to an evening's enjoyment after the arduous work of
the past week.
A most delightful card
party was given last Saturday week by Miss Schneider.
Brilliant autumn leaves and carnations were sued in decorating the
parlor and living room. Miss Schneider was charmingly
assisted in serving by her mother, Miss Esther Parky and
Miss Ruth Knights. Prizes were awarded to Mrs. Nourse,
Miss Anderson and Mr. Golden. The guests were
Dr. and Mrs. Nourse, Judge and Mrs. Perky, Mr. and Mrs. Knights, Mr.
and Mrs. Meek, Mr. and Mrs. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. Golden, Mr and Mrs.
Pike, Mrs. Coats, Misses Stewart, Cuddy, Anderson, Wooten, Waterman,

engaged in the mining business.
