IS A TRIUMPH HPfiREE future belles-' of San Francisco 'society, whose costumes were among the most "striking JL at the Children's Fancy Dress Party held. yesterday at the , Fairmont. : Left to risrht-they (1 mm a at - . . , T - are: wiauaine spreaceis. blackbird; Alice Moffltt, beagling costume; Eleanor Spreckels, parrot. Youngsters of Prominent Social ' Families Revel in Beautiful and Original Costumes; Proud Pa rents Share Delight at Fairmont BY CHOLLY FRANCISCO, V FARKLING eyes and the un collected eagerness and excitement or youth dominated the children s fancy dress party yesterday after noon at the Fairmont Hotel, where the elder class of Miss Fannie Hin man's dancing- pupils met at a juve nile Mardi Gras. ' The party has been anticipated for weeks by the youngsters. They have been discussing costumes and rehearsing their steps as if for the most important event of the year, as indeed it was to them, with the possible exception of birthdays and Christmas. The hour of the party was set at 8:30. Promptly on time came trooping all the usual characters of a fancy dress party, with half a dozen absolutely original . ones for good measure. For instance, there was the young beagling 'maid in the person I of Miss Alice Moffltt, the winsome naugmer or ur. ana Mrs. tieroen Moffltt. In a short green blazer and white flannel skirtie, green stockings, white sport shoes and a saucy black velvet jockey cap, she made a captivating picture. To add to the en- eemble she carried a toy beagle ' hound. " THE scene when the youngsters formed for the grand march was like that of the Mardi Gras for color and diversity of character. But the ebulliency of youth, the unfeigned, unconscious grace of childhood gave a piquancy which the grown-up party utterly lacked. There were but few masks, no court and no queen and her court, but the costumes were equally as lovely, rich of color and fabric. The patronesses of the dancing class were on hand early and quite soon afterward the great room was lined with adoring mothers and a few fathers, some to see their boys and girls In the roles which they had played at the Mardi Gras a few weeks before. Clowns and Follies " HERE-was the same motley of I clowns, follies, pierrots, Jockeys, a Robin Hood or two, a Pocahontas, daisies and roses, Mandarins and Russian peasants, birds and insects. More than a hundred and fifty danced. The grand march was led by Nernhard Dohrmann and Barbara Benjamin, these names having been chosen by lot. The others fell In for the march, which ended In a spirited one-step. One of the interesting characters to the onlookers, by virtue of association with the Mardi Gras, was the preen and yellow parrot, Impersonated by Miss Eleanor Spreckels, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Spreck els. The costume was exactly like that worn by the aunt of the little miss, Mrs. Daniel Jackling, , at the other ball. ' There was the same coat of green feathers, and short skirts of yellow tulle and headdress of green leathers. The child has the same patrician features of her aunt and the resemblance was remarkable. Her younger sister, Miss Claudlne Spreckels, was a blackbird, the costume made in similar fashion except that it was all black with tufts of red in the headdress. The two daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Welch were another attractive pair. Florence Welch was an old fashioned girl in hoop Bkirts, pantalettes, flowered muslin and ruffles with black velvet ribbons. Her sister, Marie, waa an Indian maiden in brown leather slashed to form fringe cm the skirt. Her stockings and moccasins were brown and in her dark hair, parted smoothly into two long plaits, she wore a single turkey feather. Red beads and warmpum hung from wrists and neck. Miss Mary Martin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Martin, was a dainty daisy, in green and white tulle with trimmings of yellow. 1 . 1 . i-... , , , fSiyiw-"'- - t - vwwtov., ;..-,, . , , v-. i - - - - , , . i " - n - " 'VVvf ri-i ;:- -Z-:lt - :J .

Gibbons Meyer was a Russian gentleman. He wore a red coat elaborated with yellow, and black satin trousers. His sister, MiBS Dorothy Meyer, was a Russian -peasant maid. Her costume was of real Russian material, a red cotton homespun, with cross stitch of yellow floss. The skirt was made full and short andthe headdress was distinctively Russmn. Miss Elizabeth Atkinson was a dainty "black-eyed Susan." The body of her dress was yellow silk, slashed to simulate petals. The neck was circled with tulle "Susans" of brown, with hearts of yellow. With her brown eyes and curls, the costume made an attractive picture. Little Phyllis Fay was a peacock. The foundation dress was of green tnlle and over this was hung scores f peacock feathers. Charles Fay was a white Pierrot, with black pompoms. Little Jean Howard was an adorable little queen of the fairies in blue tulle with voluminous short skirts, a fairy wand and a fairy crown of silver. Jane Carrlgsn was Mary. Mary. Quite Contrary."

JONES of New York, who has been on a business trip to New Zealand, arrived here yesterday and is at -the Stewart. "A good little country, whose people do not quite understand American sentiment and American ways, and who, in certain classes, are far from friendly to Americans," Is his impression of New Zealand. He says the American policy of strict neutrality is not appreciated in New Zealand, as the New Zealanders seem to think that, the United States should "jump right into the conflict on the side of the allies." Jones ascribes this to the fact that the New Zealanders are more British and more Imperialistic in their views than even the English themselves. He says New Zealand is prosperous, but It does not offer such a good field for American goods as does Australia. W. A. BISSETT, business man of Seattle, who has been on an extended visit to Guatemala, returned here yesterday. He Is at the Palace. Blssett says that the United States is not the only country which has its troops ready to cope with the Mexican situation. Little Guatemala has no less than 30,000 men on the Mexican border, Bissett says. "There Is no actual trouble between the two Latin ' governments," he continued, "but there have been so many raids into Guatemalan territory by Mexican bandits and horse and cattle thieves that the matter has developed In a real danger for Guatemala. I visited many border towns and found them all full of troops." Bissett was struck with the enormous difference between Mexicans and Guatemalans. "The Guatemalans even the Indians are very hospitable and kind," he said. "The Guatemalan cities are clean and their homes and hotels comfortable. The people are exceedingly well Informed, and even the Indians, who could only speak a few words of English, asked me questions about the European war which showed how well posted they are on that subject."

BUSINESS NOTICES. How Much Rye Do You Eat? Most people eat little, if any, rye. Yet rye is one of tho most healthful and nutritious cereals. Dr. Jackson's Roman Meal, the most nutritious cereal food known to science, contains 35 per cent whole berries of rye. t In addition it contains whole wheat, deodorized flax, seed and bran. It distinctly differs in composition from any other food on the market. It will positively relieve constipation or "money back." Roman Meal looks different and requires a simpler way of preparation! So be absolutely certain to follow directions on package and do not stir while cooking porridge or you spoil it. ? Sold by grocers at 23c.
