The services at the grave ended by the choir singing, "Shall We Meet Beyond the River."

M. Farnsworth, after which Mrs. T. G. Webber gave a graphic account of her visit to Genoa and the home and notable places of Columbus reminiscences. Mrs. Webber was the only one who had visited these historic present scenes. In honor of the occasion Mrs. Horne had decorated a Columbus room in the most artistic manner imaginable, with a variety of Indian relics, that reminded one forcibly ef the early days in the valley as well as the discovery of America. It only needed a papoose in the baby basket and a live Indian mother or two to complete the picture. There were mats and blankets galore, mocassins and other buckskin garments elaborately fringed, and fine ears of Indian corn in an Indian squaw The entire room and Indian basket. ornaments decorated with Autumn leaves and trailing vines, over which the light of the setting sun fror the western windows fell, making the picture sufficiently fantastic for the weird fancy to conjure up woodland scenes with sleeping Indians, or almost to hear the warwhoop of the savages springing from their hiding places. In the absence of the regent, Mrs Williams, the first Mrs Farnsworth, presided Mrs. Ella W. Hyde gave her paper which was exceedingly interesting, the topic being "Important Events of the Revolution, 1775 and 1776." The refreshments served were also in keeping with the celebration of the day, Ice cream in globes, white and chocolate color, imitating earth and water. Altogether it was a delightful afternoon and Mrs. Horne deserves great credit for the artistic taste displayed in the arrangement of the details that gave such pleasure to her guests. vice-regen- t, Miss Katherine E.

In the library a cooling, deliciors punch was served by handsome young matrons, and altogether the affair was calculated to charm and bewilder the lovers of social gaiety. Mrs. W. W. Riter wore a most becoming gown and the bride, Mrs. W. D. Riter, was arrayed in a dainty fashion which suited her slender figure to perfection. Had it really been a wedding party it could scarcely have been more enjoyable, except perhaps as gentlemen do add greatly to such entertainments, especially weddings. Although it was not a wedding party, it was in honor of a bride, and therefore, The guests necessarily most interesting. all seemed delightfully happy and surely the ladies who gave so much genuine enjoyment to their friends must be happy in the thought, if they were a little weary of standing and shaking hands with the dear five hundred. A VERY PRETTY KENSINGTON. Mrs. C. D. Schettler gave a very pretty Kensington tea at her home, corner 4th and B. Streets, on Saturday afternoon, October. 12, the Guest of Honor being her mother, Mrs. LydiaD Alder, just recently returned from a two years' mission to England Mrs. Alder also visited Germany while abroad, attended the International Congress of Women held in London in 1899, and was one of the American women entertained by Her Majesty, Queen and Empress Victoria, at St. George's Hall, July 21, 1 901. Altogether Mrs. Alder had a most interesting and successful tour and mission to the land of her nativity. She visited her relatives in the beautiful little town of Trowbridge where her parents had resided previous to coming to America. Mrs. Schettler's parlors were artistically decorated for the occasion and the delightful music of stringed instruments added much to the enjoyment of the very large number of assembled guests. The beautiful young girls in dainty muslins and summer fabrics, with their lively conversation mixing with young matrons and elderly ladies was a very pleasant contrast, and the afternoon was most enjoyable. These social gatherings help to unite and cement together the friendships of those whose interests are in a way closely identified with each other. Of course the delicious refreshments, lemonade, bon bons etc., served by the graceful young ladies, is one of the enlivening features of a Kensington tea or an afternoon party, even if chocolate is used instead of the regulation "tea."
