Ihe week has held little of interest
that has not in some way boon related
to tno reception to our gallant First.
The preparations which have tilled the
past two weeks were eo complete, thanks
to the indefatigable energy of tho com
mitttcB, that the soldiers were fittingly
received and feasted upon their arrival.
The ladies who have bad in charge the
arrangements for the serving of moale.
are much to be commended for the
business ability aad practical grasp of
large affairs displayed, be well as for the
taste and ingenuity exercised in the
decorations of the dining hall as a whole
and of the individual tables. The hall
used is in the form of a maltese itoes.
In the center, a platform, drapod in rod,
white and blue, with upright pillars
twined with bunting, furnished a pleas
ing point from which the long rows of
tables radiated. This stand waB occu
pied on Wednesday during the time of
the evening meal by Hagbnow'a bani
which rendered a pleasing program,
Wednesday was the first day of the
feast and much curiosity was evinced by
the crowds who surrounded the open
doors, and many commendatory remarks
were heard concerning the interior ar
rangements. The entice ceiling space
was hung with triangular banners of
pink and green, forming an overhead
sea of soft and pleasant coloring. The
center of it was filled with flags and a
profusion of small flagB and streamers
of bunting distributed about the wails
added the necessary patriotic touch.
At the north entrance was a large arch
of the delicate green of asparagus ferns,
and decorated with tiny flags. Mrs.
Will Wittmann was in charge of tho dec
orations of the hall and everyone was
surprised at the transformation wrought
by the thousands of pennants depend
ing from tho roof and Btrung in con
verging lines towards thecentor. Pass
ing through the arch the soldiers dis
tributed themselves through tho room
and selected places at the daintily pre
pared tables, each of which was pre
sided over by the chairman who bad
been responsible for its preparation.
The bevy of young ladies who assisted
in serving were charmingly gowned
those at each table presenting Eorae in
dividual feature, such as dainty caps or
distinctive rosettes, which added to the
charm of the pceno.
The ladicB in charge decorated their
tables with a success which bespoke n
devotion and enthusiasm which merited
the admiration of all. Tho decorations
can not be described fully but the
merest outline must suggest the care
given to their arrangement. In the
north wing were five tableB presided
over by Mrs. W. B. Ogden, Mrs. D. D,
Muir, Mrs. John Dorgan, Mrs. Lyon and
Mm. C. II. Ladd.
Mrs. Ogdon's table was decorcted in
pink and green, a huge jardiniere of
ferns occupying the center of the table
while bowls of btidesmaid roses lent a
touch of color. A roso at each place
completed a most dainty wholo.
Mrs. Muir'a lablo was in red and
green, the blossoms used boing scarlet
geraniums and cannas to which ferns
added brilliancy by contrast.
Mrs. Dorgan 'b tablo was in pink and
green, a largo canopy formod of pink
chrysanthemums aud asparagus feme,
overhung tho center. From each cor
ner deponded tendrils of green which
were fastened to upright wreathed
coluranB rising from the four corners of
The fourth tablo at which Mrs. Lyon
presided was done in red and white
carnations with a touch of groon. Tiny
flags added to this brilliant and effective
decoration.- The beauty of tho fifth
table, Mrs. C H. Ladd'e, was also dueto
a tasteful arrangement of smnll Hugs.
The first table in the west wing, Mrs,
Lew Marshall being in charge, was mosk
appropriately adorned. CroBs guns if
the center supported a basket of trailing
vines with blossoms of red, white and
blue peeping out here and there, lied
white and blue asters at each place
added the last bright touch to a very
unique and striking table. A cozy cor
ner adjoining made inviting by a gener
ous use of rugs, divanB and cushions
was evidently much appreciated by the
BonB of Mars who chanced upon it.
The next table presided over by Mrs.
W. A. Green was gay with golden-rod,
massed in big yeilow jardiniereB with
the over-Dresent flag appearing here and
there amid the gold. Mrs. Carl Funke
had chosen flags and asparagus ferns as
the medium for working out a pretty
scheme for a tablo surrounded by white
capped maidens. The central piece was
a large American flag draped from the
Mrs. Albert Watkins, with red and
green aB color scheme, worked It out
uniquely with flowers and fruit. Scar.
lot geraniums and ferns formed a center "
piece, while at each end of tho table
watermelons carved into pyramidal
shape upheld-the dignity of the vine.
Mrs. Mitchell's table was in green
and white charmingly cool and refresh
ing in effect, duo to the tasteful arrange
ment of white carnations, palms and
ferns. Mr 9. Barbour used Hags and
ferns to most artistic purpose in the dec
oration other table.
In the south wing two small tables
under the care of Miss Clara Smith were
decorated alike with red geraniumsacd
In the east wing Mrs. Frank Woods
presided at the first table which was
gorgeouB in red and yellow, cannaB be
ing the Btately flower chosen. These
were massed in yellow jardinieres with a
bit of green to emphasize their brilliance.
Mrs. Walter Hargreaves chose golden
rod as a seasonable decoration. A great
mass of it glowed in the center of the
table, while foliage plants with their
soft rich coloring, subordinating tbeniv
selves to the rich yellowa, made abar-7
monious and artistic whole. Glints of
vivid red here and thorp added to the
satisfaction which thB beholder felt.
Mrs.C. E. Yates bad chosen green and
gold and her tablo was beautifully diees
od in forne and goldon-rod while graceful
palms added a suggestion of the far
tropics whence our own are returned.
Miss IIollnwbuBh's table had a pyra

a delicate tracery, At each plato a red
