Mrs. Henry P. Eames, who left with
her husband on Thursday for Europe,
to be absent fifteen months. Mrs.
Thompson's home, with Its airy rooms
and large lawn, is an ideal place for
a summer party, and the dainty gowns,
of many colors, worn by the guests
added to the plcturesqueness of the
scene. The decorations were elabor
ate. Pink roses and palms were In
the drawing room, red roses adorned
the library, and the dining room was
in green and white. The walls of the
dining room were festooned with ever
greens and a bouquet of white roses

a silver rimmed mirror, made an ef
fective centrepiece for the table. A
spring luncheon was served by Mes
dames S. H. Atwood T. I. Lyon, W.
B. Ogden, Mark Woods, J. F. Stevens,

unselfishly to further the Interests of
