6 THE COU1UEK SOCIETY NOTES LIFE'S MAZY WHIRL Governor and Mrs. Savage returned Siitiinlny evening from their southern tour. Mrs. Savage left on December tliirty-tlrst for Kansas City, for :i brief isit at the home of relatives and the governor joined her there a little later. Governor and Mrs. Savage spent the greater part of the time during which they were absent in and near New Orleans, making trips out from there to places of interest according to the dictates of their own sweet wills. Go ing as they did for rest and recreation they accepted no social attention, al though much was offered, until they were on their return journey. Mrs. Savage enjoyed the trip greatly, par ticularly the visit to New Orleans, as this was the Ilrst she had seen of that famous old city, and in her gracious uomanlj way she talked delightfully the other day of her experiences, and gave many interesting incidents of her journey. She spoke of the visits she and the governor paid to the French quarter or New Orleans, saying that nowhere, even in Europe, Is the dis tinction between the old and the new. Trips to Chaimette where the battle of New Orleans was fought, and to Lake Pontehartrain were made, and visits to cotton plantations where Gov ernor and Mrs. Savage made a study of plantation life and witnessed the care of cotton in all its stages. Each planter has his own gin and cares for his own crop. Every part of the cotton is utilised. A tine quality of oil, re sembling olive oil, is made from the seed, and the seed is also used for feed and other purposes. Speaking of the hospitality of the southern people, Mrs. Savage said It has been in no way ex aggerated. Everywhere was there the greatest courtesy shown. On the re turn Journey Mr. and Mrs. Savage accepted an Invitation to a banquet tendered them at Memphis. The ban quet was given by the prominent busi ness men of Memphis at the Tennes see club. In an after-dinner speech Governor Savage spoke of the sterile country through which they had passed in going from New Orleans to Memphis, and compared the soil with that of Nebraska to the great advant- MIss Agnes Wortley (a winner of hearts) Miss Charlotte "Whedon.

A breakfast at Madame Begue's was a pleasant incident. Madame Begue and her husband. Monsieur Begue, have lived and served in New Orleans for many years, and have grown wealthy in serving, but their breakfasts have become famous, and famous people, as well as those less known, when In the Crescent City, flock to their board. Their table accommodates but thirty, and they serve but one meal each day, breakfast at eleven, and so great is the demand that places at the table must be engaged days, or for Sunday, weeks in advance. Guest books are there in which each records his name and many are the celebrities who have crossed the sanded Jioor of the vesti- bule. and climbed the winding stairs for the privilege of enjoying Madame Begue's Creole dainties. Eugene Field wrote in the guest book: "I'm very proud to testify The happiest of my days Is March 11, '95, At breakfast at Begue's" Mrs. Savage advises the tourist after doing the French quarter to spend much time at the wharves among the shipping: it Is both interesting and profitable. Iarge vessels from Bir mingham, Manchester, and other for eign ports were at the docks loading and unloading. Many of them bore the letter "M," showing that they be longed to Pierrepont Morgan. age of the latter state. An official of one of the railroads was present and conceded that this might be true of the section through which they had come but said that he would place a special train at the disposal of Gov ernor and Mrs. Savage and take them with any friends they might invite through a section which would com pare favorably with any in the coun try. At a banquet on this train the governor admitted that the country through which they were passing was very beautiful but, he added, the soil which produces this luxuriant growth is brought down from Nebraska each year by the streams. He was invited to come down next spring with the soil. Mr. and Mrs. Savage attended the celebration of the birthday of Rob ert E. Lee at Memphis where the con federate veterans were present In their gray uniforms and carried their old guns used during the war. Mrs. Sav age said, "Much as I enjoyed the south, I was delighted when our train crossed the Nebraska line, and am so glad to be at home again.' Miss Whedon.
