tho investor and manufac
turer of Rjkewood pottery is a collector
of rare china and of all sorts of relics,
In one of the drawing rooms there is a
massive china carcopbagus and in an
other a palanquin or sedan chair. The
rooms are small but can be thrown to
gether. By the ingenuity of former ten
ants the sarcophagus has been convert
ed into a plant stand but the palanquin
resists the decorative impulse. If
draped it looks like a spiritualist's cabi
net. Undraped it it a conspicuous curi
osi'y and a relic that pttracts too much
attention for drawing-room convention.

The cotillion Thursday night at Met
ropolitan hall never lagged for a mom
ent but went with a rush from begin
ning to end, thanks to tbe spirited way
in which it was led by Messrs. Sam
Burns, Haskell, Dwight Swobe and Will
Burns. Four leaders made the work
easier and kept everything moving
quickly and smoothly. Mrs. Hull and
Dr. Lyman gave out the favors which
were ery pretty, the teapots for the
girls being especially appreciated. There
were also tiny golf bags, bunches of
violets and plaster plaques for the girls
and tov tennis racquets, footballs, pins
and violet boutonnieres for the men.
Some of the indirect figures were fun
for every one but one or two, who hap
pened to be it. In one, the hall was
darkened partially and as the men stood
in a row at one end, tbeir backs turned,
while a line of girls with a lay figure in
tbeir midst borrowed from one of the
shops for tho occassion and dressed in
sorao of Mrs. Lyman's good clothes ad
vanced toward tho men and stopped
just behind them, tho dummy boing
pushed along with the rest. At a sig
nal the men turned and danced with
whoever was behind them. one. of
course, drawing tho dummy, which at
first glance in the dim light was to all
appearances a very smiling and willing
partner, until ha put an arm about her
wooden waist preparatory to gliding off
in the mazy whirl. Another figure was
the tying together of the men's feot so
that they could only reach tho lady of
their choice by a series of wild hops and
jumps with a chance of losiug htr if tho
next man got there first. A prety fig
ure was the butterfly one, in which tho
girls carried butterflies over their shoul
ders on the bud of a long, slender wav
ing twig, while tho men tried to catch
them with nets and when successful
they danced with tbe girl whose butter
fly was enmeshed. The last figuro of
tbe evening was a snowball ono, a bas
ket on wbeeles being brought in filled
with fluffy cotton balls, to which each
dancer helped himself and immediately
the pelting began and in a moment it
waB like dancing in a snow drift and tho
strains of Home Sweet Home warned
the dancers that the cotillion was over.
Supper was served about half past
eleven, when a new arrangement was
introduced by which all tho guests sat
down at two long parallel tables ad
ding greatly to tbe sociability and en
joyment of the supper.

smilax draped the entrance to the hall
and continued in a border around the
entire room, while between all the win
dows hung gorgeous Navajo and ser
rape blankets and Oriental rugs, mak
ing tbe place look brighter and coier
tian usual. Dimmick's full orchestra
was hidden behind a wall of palms at
the end of the hall and in one corner a
small soda water fountain almost dis
guised by palms and a huge bunch of
carnations, did tbe work of the custom
ary punch table, giving the dancers the
choice of half a dozen flavors. Mr. and
Mrs. Paxton and Mr. and Mrs. William
Paxton, Jr., received at tbe right of the
entrance in a corner artistically arrang
ed with rugs, divans and a screen with
palms on every side and a table that
held a great jar of American Beauties,
which were regally beautiful Mrs.
Paxton wore a handsome gown of black
lace over satin and point lace revers on
the bodice. Her daughter-in-law was
in a white Batten berg lace robe over
chiffon and silk a most exquisite toilet.
The room was crowded early in the eve
ning, but later those who did not dance
left it to the younger and more enthusi
astic guests. Supper was served all the
evening in the supper room of the club
where the table was banked in the cen
tre with pink roses and lighted with half
a dozen rose shaded candelabra.
