W0man'sW0rli Wives of Prominent Demo- crats tq Have Harmony Feast. MRS. CHAMP OL&BKMR8. WOODBOW WII SON. A Dolly Madison May time breakfast which will bring together the wives of Democratic leaders throughout the coumry is planned for May 20 by Mrs. Champ Clark, wife of the speaker of the house; Mrs. Henry D. Clayton. wife of Representative Clayton of Ala- bama, and Mrs. Oscar W. Underwood, wife of the leader of the majority in the lower branch of congress. The breakfast is designed to bring together the women of the party in much the same fashion as the men come together from time to time at the festal banquet board for good fellowship and mutual acquaintanceship. It will be held at one of the big ho- tels in Washington, and the list of those to be invited as guests of honor includes Mrs. Graver Cleveland of New Jersey, widow of former Presi- dent Cleveland; Mrs. Bryan, wife of William Jennlngs Bryan of Nebraska. who three times has been the national standard bearer of the party; Mrs. Al- ton Brooks Parker. wife of Judge Par ker of New York, who once was the Democratic presidential candidate, and Mrs. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, whose husband was vice president during one of former President Cleve- land's administrations. Mrs. Clark is to be the toastmistress of the occasion, and the list of those who are eligible as guests will include the wives of Democratic members of the senate and house, of members of former Democratic cabinets, of the Democratic governors, governors elect or Democratic nominees for governor, of the Democratic Justices of the su- preme court, of the Democratic nation- al committee members and of promi- nent Democratic residents of the dis- trier and the country at large. The occasion, it is pointed out. will take especial significance from the characteristic attributes of Dolly Mad- laGS, the patron saint chosen by the woen of the democracy, who was one of the most forceful women who ever presided over the White House.

The after-Lent season was opened most delightfnlly by the dance given Tuesday evening by the members of the Q. A. T. sewing club. The young ladies worked hard in decorating the hall for the affair and their labors showed surprisingly pleasing results, i The stage was banked with green and white, and yellow streamers festooned the balcomes and arched the dancing floor from the chandeliers. Punch was served in a bower at the entrance cor- ner. Easter lilies were a feature. The dance was well attended by all the more prominent local dancing crowd and there were many out-of-town guests. A very delightful farewell was hur- riedly tendered to Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Stephens Wednesday evening by the Knights of Pythias and Sisters when it was learned definitely that Mr. Steph- ens was leaving Thursday. The affair was one of the most pleasant and thor- oughly enjoyable of the many similar ones the lodge members have partici- pated in, although it marked the depar- ture of a very sincerely liked couple who have been very prominent in the lodge work and who will' be greatly missed by the members of the lodges and the community generally. The early part of the evening was devoted to cards and then the tables were set for a light repast previous to which the guests of honor were presented with a very handsome silver berry service. E. T. Bascom acted as toastmaster af- ter supper and kept up a varied pro- gram of mingled jest and sincerely ex- pressed utterance of appreciation and regret.
