titer noon. In spite of the cold weather society society turned out en tnasae to fay deference to two lovely entertainments. Mr. and Mrs JM or ton Atoms and the auoim Morris re cited on Weinesd&y afternoon and in tbe evening Ir. and Mrs. Holloway - . At tbe former the ruests came in from the white covered outer world to a beautiful atznos - mirth, aud tbe intoxication produced by all fought for mastery. From behind a bower of lovely flowering plants and tali, waving palms tbe musicians plied their skill and bade the many guests pay attention to music from tbe airihe operas. over in a corner a young belle held her minature court giving a siciie - here and a glance there. In the center of the room, stood the, host and hostess receiving their guests, and on the sofa sat tbe more stately matrons discussing discussing the scene. Out in tbe hallway leading leading to the dining - room was a table, w here a party of merry, jolly, bright yonng people spent their rit&e in most harmonious pleasure. pleasure. Many of tbe guests came in evening dress - en route to ttim other reception and they were reluctant to leave so much pleas - nra behind. Miss Fearn and Miss Casseday were tbe honored guests of the evening, tbe reception being given to them. Then bow thoroughly enjoyable was the party at Dr. Boli.:. way's. You know "pleasure is but the refreshment that cheers us in the pursuit of true happiness," or all of pleasure engendered engendered by such occasions It bat a necessary prescription to our full and perfect health. Dr. and Mrs. Holloway entertained' their daughter's gnest, Miis Mead, and she certainly certainly enjoyed a taste of the proverbial Kentucky Kentucky hospitality. The strangers within our gate are always reluctant "to fold their tenta and silently steal away," and this year more so than ever. Our doors are ever pent and all having a claim upon ns are welcomed and feasted. Our Louisville, men add another to their overcharged account account of politeness and courtesy by their ever 'ready gallantry to strangers, and their attention to them. At this party all tbe temporary sojourners in our city, and they are many, were present, and added not a a little to the pleasure and beauty of the evening. ThU nous was so nicely adapted to the pleasure of iU guests large drawing - room for the dancers; a quiet, warm reception reception room, whore lass widely inclined pleasure pleasure pleasure - seekers could rest, and enjoy a quiet, delightful chat with some quiet soul; deep window .embrasure with nicely cushioned seats, and wide accommodating stairs. How startling it is to casually raite your eyes, while in tbe midst of a quiet talk with some congenial friend, and aee, standing in the door - way, souio peivon who has been listen - ing to your conversation, and baa construed it according to Lis own nice method. 8uch things are too prevalent.
