THE SUNDAY OREGOyiAN, POBTLAND, OCTOBER 1, 1905.
Wednesday was society's busy day last
week. Mra McBrlde's tea in the after
noon, Mrs. "Wheeler's card party, the Ex
position banquet to Governor and Mrs.
Meade, the opening of the Tacht Club
and the dance at the American Inn all
furnished separate points of attraction.
Private social affairs during the week
have been few. Portlanders are making
the most of tho few remaining days of the
Exposition, taking a last look at tills or
that exhibit of especial interest, and
finally deciding on the purchase of souve
nirs. The Buffalo arts and crafts shop is
doing a thriving business these days, and
several husbands and wives will see again
at Christmas time beautiful objects they
admired there. Desk sets and personal
ornaments from the crafts exhibit,
bronrea and pottery from the Japanese
booths and sculptures and terra cottas
from the Italian section seem to be the
favored articles chosen for souvenirs or
for holiday gifts. Portland's possession
of objects of beauty will be materially
nlarged through the Exposition.
One of the prettiest affaire of the week
was the tea given on Wednesday after
noon at the Hobart-Curtls by Mrs. Mc

fern. The center of the tea. table was a

while from tho chandelier overhead were
looped the festoons of ribbon with rose
knots here and there. , Mrs. DeLancey
