Scarcely consistent with the general
quiet that usually mark the opening week
of Lent, the laat aeven daya have been
busy one Indeed la society, but the suc
cession of the larger and more general
affalra hare been In marked contrast to
thoae of previous weeks and the fashion
able were compelled to bestir themselves
and confine tbelr affaire to Monday and
Tuesday Instead of the closing daya. aa
ass been their wont In the past. Of courae
everyone does not observe bent, and those
unaffected by Ita restrictions hare and
will continue to entertain and be enter
tained, and among these the time waa quite
as full aa usual.
And then there la another clasa that
pot even this aeason can affect, the whist
players. In tact, the game seems almoat
to have become a habit with them and
they bold their mornlDg, afternoon and
evening meetings regardless. It Is not the
bridge variety of which one bears so much
that baa so completely enslaved them, but
5uat the old-fashioned aclentifio game.
Tor theae ping-pong baa no attrac
tion, which Is rather discouraging to their
more progressive If lesa scientlOo friends,
who are trying so hard and so unsuccess
fully of late to create some enthusiasm re
garding thia game that haa taken other
places by storm. A very popular hostess
made a resolve last week which she prom
ises to keep that not a single game of whist
aha II be played in her bouse during Lent.
It la to be ber sacrifice, she aays, and
recognizing the game as a menace to all
other varieties of sociability she has de
termined to free herself and aa many of
her friends aa possible, from It.
As' though bent upon making the most
of 1U laat opportunity society . enjoyed to
the utmost the cotillion given on Monday
evening at Chambers' hall. Preparation bad
been made for forty-five couples, few of
Which failed to attend. It was a flower
german, and as the couples came on the
floor the men were given bunchea of roses
and the women bunches which served aa
favors.- The cotillion waa led by Messrs.
Crelgh, assisted by Arthur ' Cooler, Frank
Haskell, Luther Kountze and Charlea
Kountze. - The figures were, especially at
tractive, provoking much fun and general
amusement. Among them waa a marching
figure, the ball being darkened and each
of the participants furnished with a
Japanese lantern swung on a stick, pro
ducing a very pretty effect aa they marched
about the ball. A battle of tissue paper
;omets and a potato race were more
amualng than dignified. ' perhaps, but oc
casioned general enjoyment. It waa a
masked figure, bowevar, that proved the
. climax of the evening. A sheet waa
atretched above which appeared the masked
beads of the men, from which the women
were' compelled to choose their partners
and go. through the figure before his iden
tity was revealed to ber. The second bait
of -the figure the women masked and the
laugh waa enjoyed by the other side. ' Re
freshments were served during the even
ing. The presence of a number of out-of-town
guests contributed a pleasant feature
to the evening. '

Woman's Work in Club and Charity
The unsuccessful attempt to bring about
a discussion of ths color question at the
laat open meeting of the Woman's club
has occasioned no little comment 'among
club women during the laat two weeks, and
incidentally the awakening of many ot
them to the fact that the color question
In its relation to the Individual clubs ot
the state means something more than the
right or wrong of admitting clubs ot col
ored women to the General Federation ot
Woman's Clubs'. On a mors careful in
vestigation many find . themselves pos
sessed chiefly of a personal - opinion In
tbe matter and only half informed regard
ing the actual progress made toward the
adjuatment of it by the executive board
pf tbe General Federation, in. whose hands
It haa been aince the Milwaukee meeting.
As . a result there has been a general
request for information regarding the pro
ceedings ot the board tor tbe plans tor
tbe solution of the color question as pro
posed by the Georgia and Maasachuaetts
federations. Prevloua to the Milwaukee
biennial', there were tew clubs that had
not decided one way or the other the ques
tion that promised to be the Issue of that
meeting, reorganization, but in all the
trouble that haa arisen over the color ques
tion since they have rather lost sight of
the original Issue and fall to recognise It
aa halt at leaat ot the great question to
be settled at Los Angeles. As ths matter
stands at preaent reorganization and tbe
color question are one Issue. Inasmuch aa
the Massachusetts proposition includes
them both, while the Georgia Federation,
If Its proposed amsndment falls to meet
with approval, bas formulated suggestions
that will also Include reorganization, and,
regardless ot ths right or wrong of ad
mitting colored women to the national or-'
ganlsatlon, the clubs whose representa
tives are not thoroughly poated upon both
of theae questions might as well not be
reDresented there at all, so far as tns ad
justment 'of them la concerned.
i the rlnae of the Milwaukee biennial
tbe executive board found Itself with the
color question to settle and at a meeting
ahortly after It referred the matter back
to the Individual cluba of the orgaulxa
tlon, with the urgent request that they dla-
it anit return their deoislon to tns
executive committee, through the state or-
gaatzatlona. that they might be governed
by the opinion ot ths majority In their
adjustment ot it. In ths meantime the
Massachusetts federation bas offered
amendments to ths by-laws of the Gen
ersl Federation of Woman's clubs that
Include an adjuatment of the color quea
tlon through reorganization, while the
Georgia federation offers aa amendment
that v ill entirely exclude the oolored cluba.
Theae proposed amendments arc so directly
conflicting, however, that . the executive
board at a later meeting requested the two
states proposing them to appoint commit
tees to meet and harmonise their plana so
that Uw. wleSht bs 1 better fhapg to bf
