SOCIETY - page 5

     The 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 be present.

     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, Peterson, Underwood and Messrs.

Greene at the Baptist parsonage at Twentieth and Lemp streets.  Mr. and Mrs. Clayton left Thursday for their future home in Dewey, where Mr. Clayton is engaged in the mining business.
