ways nnd means for making tlio greatest
possible number of calls In a given num

of board represents an obligation, a task.
If she Is to do her duty, if alio Is to "keep

What, talking about tho weather In
this brilliant society of Washington!
Yes, Indeed. Not much elso is talked
about in thoso kaleidoscopic afternoon
drawing rooms. Thero is not timo for
any Berious conversation. Hurry nnd
triviality, stupidity and formality, be
como habitual on thcso occasions. Said

man who had been a school mistress; "I
had heard so much of Washington so
ciety that I was almost afraid to enter it.
I was timid about meeting tlio great
ladies, and lieforo coming hero brushed
up n little in art, literature and olitict
that I might not bo wholly nonplused
when engaged In conversation with the
brilliant leaders of capital society. Im
agino my surpriso to find tho weathei
always and everywhere the chiol
topic of conversation."

has an evening reception to attend, or a
dinner table to sit at from 7 to 10, she
crams a little food down her throat,
