Mrs, Xanders acted as toastmaster
and presented each toast and speaker
in achatmlng little speech. After the
third course had been removed, Mrs.
Wright responded to tha toast:
"1 can never hope to do justice to
thorn. Those gdntle and submissive
creatures whom we took for bolter or
for worse. The embodiment of all
which at one time was called youth
and whom we thought equal to Adonis
for beauty, Solomon for wisdom and
Hercules for strength, but found on
closer acquaintance but ordinary mor
tals, only larger than ourselves in
avoirdupoiso. Wo trust none
of our beloved husbands will take
offense at what has been said, oven
though we havo boon a little severe, for
have wo not paid them tho highest
compliment possible by surrendering
to them our names, our fortunes nnd
our honor? In tho Innguugo of Hamlet
wo can say: 'What a wonderful pieco
of work is maul how noble in reason!
how iutinlte in faculty, in form nnd
moving! in nctlcu, how like uu angel!
in apprehension, how like a god! tho
beauty of tho world! tho paragon of
animals!"' Tho omitted part of this
speech created much merriment and

see bow shy nearly all tho gentlemen
were of hor in public, until G, J, War
ren won the day in a happy liltlo
speech, proving at least his fearlessnoss
of either tho old woman or tho new.
After the next course, Mrs. Warren re
sponded In a tantalizing spottoh to tho
toast, "Tho Secret Work." Whon
coffee was served, Mrs. Xanders re
