GATEWAY TO THE GARDEN OF THE GODS.
A happy Christmas party was the re
caption given by Mr. and Mm. A. J.
Jfercer at their home, 1809 P street, to
celebrate their silver wedding anniver
sary. Mlsnrn Anna and Ada Mercer ad
mitted the guests and directed them to
the dressing rooms. When they descend
ed the stairs they were greeted by Miss
Mercer, who presented them to the re
ceiving party, Mr. and Mrs. Mercer, Mr.
William Mercer and Mr. and Mrs. Lo
biBgier. The double drawing rooms were
decorated with white roses and carna
tions and ?estoons of Christmas
greens. White shades subdued the
Mghts. The reception hall and dining
ream were in red and green, much
fcn- being used. The balustrade
was entwined with greens and the
shades were red. The punch room above
stairs was done in pink and the dress
ing rooms were in green. Chocolate and
wafers were served In the dining room
by Mrs. Toung, Mrs. Perkins and Miss
Bell. Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Brashear
assisted in the drawing room, and punch
was served by Miss Virginia Mercer
and Miss Haynes. A handsome buffet
and many individual gifts were present
ed to Mr. and Mrs. Mercer by their
guests, who numbered one hundred. A
music box played merrily during the
- .receiving hours.
Association at the card table often re
veals characteristics which are anything
but pleasing. Not long since a lady was
speaking of a gentleman of her acquaint
ance and said, "He Is the most disa
greeable man at the card table that I
have ever seen." That such cases are
not unusual is likely, as the following
from the New York Tribune would show:
" 1 wish I had not played bridge with
Mr. X , said a girl recently. 1
thought him so nice before, and now my
liking for him has quite gone. He was
so keen about trifles. Insisted upon every
forfeit, questioned the score, and seemed
so annoyed when he lost, and yet the
stakes were very small, and he was only
out a few dollars, so. of course, it was
.not the money. It must have been the
disposition of the man coming out under
provocation, and the test did not show
Mtn up to advantage. Now, Mr. Z .
the ether man at the table, was so good
natured and such a "gentleman in his
play that I quite like him, although I
never thought him attractive before.
"All games of competition may be said
to assay certain characteristics, but the
. most crucial test seems to be card play
ing, and bridge is responsible for many
a coolness resulting from self-betrayal at
the green table."
Mrs. Rose Herron and Miss Herron
entertained ninety friends very pleas
antly Monday afternoon In the parlors
and the small hall of the Fraternity
bunding. The rooms were artistically

silver consists of a group of vaselike

covers, these are separated and distrib
uted about the table. Different colors
In Italian cut glass are also employed
with good effect.
