BELIEVE tho play, 'Tho Butterflies," to be presented this evening at
the Brandels theater for tho benefit of the Visiting Nurse association,
Is going to be quite a style show,
The other members of the company heard that Miss Margaret
McPherson, (leading lady), had borrowed some Parisian creations from
her guest, Miss Marguerite Falrchlld, of Santos, Brazil, who arrived here
from Paris just in time to be of service. So, yesterday, I happened to be
at a friend's house when one of the playors telephoned for the very now.
est gown my friend had, and I called a messenger whilo my friend packed
her gown in a box. "No, ray new cape hasn't arrived from the dress
maker; perhaps you can borrow one at one of tho shops," I heard her say.
Can you imagine any one lending their very best clothes for any
thing but charity, but whon it is for the benefit of the Visiting Nurse as
sociation, every one is outdoing his neighbor to lend assistance.
Others are lending mahogany furniture and exquisite lamps, and the
millionaire's home this evening on the stago is going to bo most realistic.
Miss Marie McShano has charge of the decoration and was requested to
furnish a millionaire's home without spending one cent.
