mission on Tuesday evening:, quite ful
filled, the pleasant anticipations -which
the previous announcement of it had
created. Miss Hammell's sympathetic
rendition of various scenes of Oregon
history as told In Mrs. Dyq's popular
book brought before her audience
vivid pictures of pioneer1 days. Mrs.
Dye was present, and expressed her
self as much gratified with Miss Ham
mell's selections and rendition. The
affair vrns to have taken place In the
Auditorium Annex, but the rain ren
dered this impossible, and a space was
cleared in the large exhibit hall of tho
Idaho building for the seating of the
guests and the erection of a platform.
Miss Hammell showed an effective
stage presence In her gown of whlto
chiffon done over pink satin. Her

confreres at the Exposition. Colonel Alt
man has made the long trip a era? 3 the
continent three tlmea since the Fair
opened, and Portland appreciates his In
terest in Its Exposition. It Is. understood
that Commissioner jLuco, of New York,
who was expected to come out again,
will be unable to do so. Mr. Luce's son
Is to be married in Montreal, October 10.
Fortlanders arc naturally somewhat in

'Society" Is for tho most part spending
its mornings now in visits to favorite
modistes and milliners. Heads of dress
making establishments have been holding
dally morning receptions for two weeks
past. Many ladies -confess to a depleted
wardrobe, and. the all'-absorblng question
of tho hour for tberh -is, 'What Is tho
latest news from Parte, from New Tork
and Chicago?" One lady jocosely ad
mitted: "There has been bo .much-' going
on all Summer that I haven't had time
to sew a button on, and I've reached the
point where I simply must have some
thing new to wear before I can go any
where." It has 'been difficult to sfop to
think of selecting materials and holding
conferences with ' Madame when there
have been so many other things to en
gross attention, and so every one has
waited until Exposition festivities were
practically at an end.
"Weddings go merrily on In spite of
Jupiter Pluvius, and September and Octo

Juno as bridal months. Moreover, there
are several hew engagements whispered
which may soon be announced. One cler

.' The ladles of "Walla "Walla, headed by
the wife of Mayor Hunt, have made merry
at tho Exposition, with no abatement of
enthusiasm. In spite of the "Oregon mist"
to which they, are not accustomed. Social

not be much -entertaining on a large scale

towards the edge. Mrs. Goode was ex
pectpd to be among the guests, but was
detained .at home by illness, and small
Dewey Ellis was called in to prevent a

one of the "suites upstairs, which was
arranged for the purpose. Mr. and Mrs.

Mr. Edmund Giltner and his charming
fiancee," Miss Zora Mae Forrester, were
among the guests at a small dinner given
oii Wednesday evening by Mrs. George
McBride- to several newly engaged young
people. Very appropriately, the table
was,, decked1 with bride roseg, and very
appropriately, tiny pink cupids, surmount
ing -candy hearts,- -were- -placed at each
plate as souvenirs. . .The. arrows held
poised by the pretty cupids were aimed In
mock challenge at the hearts that the
little God of Love had already wounded.
Mrs. McBride left yesterday for Califor
nia, where she will Join ex-Senator Mc
Bride. Several small card parties have been
g von during the past week in honor of
Miss Sprague, of Tacoma, who Is visit
ing Miss Stott.
Mrs. "William Jones, of Tacoma. isto
be tho guest of Mrs. Morton Insley dur
ing the- coming week, and several enter
tainments in her honor are (planned. Mrs.
Jones was one of the hostesses for Taco

tables and was in honor -of Mra. Oakes
and Miss Van Winkle, who have been
visiting Mrs. Gauld. Mrs. Maxwell's
prizes came from the arts and crafts

trip East soon after the close of the Ex
position. Mrs. GooQe's Summor hag been
so filled with tho social demands made on
her as wife of the president of the Expo
sition that she is much in need of a rest.
People who know how f-lncerely she has
tried to fulfill her difficult part to the
.satisfaction of everybody realize that tho
strain on her has been great. It Is un
doubtedly true, to quote the Seattle Times,
that "Mra Goode has made many friends
for Portland during the Exposition sea-son,-V
and Portlanders. who -appreciate
this and appreciate the sincerity" of her
efforts will hope to see her come back
feeling refreshed and Invigorated.
Portland people v.'ho have had the privi
lege of going through the. Exposition art

Denlo and of listening to her Informal
lecture anont the art exhibits are en

which she "illuminates" and supplement

It Is understood that several of the most
desirable works of art on exhibition at
the Exposition galleries are to remain in
Portland. Several more are being dis
cussed as poss!bl6 purchases by Portland
ers, who can well afford to buy expensive
art works, and it is expected that the
coming week will bring decisions which
shall leave the city considerably richer in
point of art possession.

ExposIUoa, and is being warmly wel-
son, the welcome I? as cordial and gen
uino as at the beginning. Mrs. Gilbert
Hunt, the wife of Walla Walla's genial
Mayor, was hostess par excellence, rep
resenting WallaWalla County as well as
the city of that name. She has been ably
assisted by Mrs. Buffum. of Prescott,
Mrs. Pauly, Mrs. Baumelster, Mrs. Whfle-
housc, Mrs. Catron, Mrs. Anderson. Mrs.
B. L. Shnrpstcln. Mrs. H. P. Isaacs, Mrs.

Misses Lulu Paul. Laura Bowles, Mabclle
Brents, Grace Isaacs, Alice Reynolds,
Charlotte Baumelster, Bertha Young,
Grace Jones, Mrs. Guy Allen Turner. Sev
eral others wero present for a day or so
at a time
Tho week's festivities at the Washing
ton building began on Monday with a re
ception to the officials of the Lewis and
Clark Exposition and to the people of
Portland, which was well attended. The
muslcalc, which was a special featuro of
the afternoon, was a delight to those who
heard It. On Tuesday, as on the previous
day, the music consisted of numbers by
the string quartette from Whitman Con
servatory of Music and vocal solos by
Miss Charlotte Baumelster and Mr. Guy
Allen Turner, of Walla Walla. Professor
Penncll. of the Whitman Conservatory,
and Mr. Claire Montelth, now of Portland.
Mr. Edgar S. Fisher, of the Conservatory
of Music of Whitman College, rendered a
number of exquisite solos upon the violin.
Perhaps the most appreciated of these
was his rendition of the well-known Largo
by Handel, on" Wednesday afternoon,
when the programme was given in honor
of "Whitman day," by the members of
the Whitman Conservatory faculty and
students, assisted by Mr. Montelth. On
that occasion Miss Alice Reynolds was
hoard In a vocal solo.
Messrs. Montelth and Turner, accompan

la. A pleasing feature or Thursday after
noon was the presentation of a gold
watch to Mr. Johnston. Washington's
chief commissioner, by the members of
the 'vashington family," with many
short speeches and great enthusiasm.
Tuesday was "Walla Walla day and the
city sent the largest excursion that has

Another Incident which occurred during
Walla Walla week most quietly and un
known to all but the few witnesses, was
the climax of a romance in the wedding
on Wednesday afternoon of Professor
Edgar S. Fischer and Miss M. Alice Rey
nolds, both of Whitman Conservatory of
music. The ceremony was performed in
the vestry of Trinity Church, in the pres
ence of only one or two intimate friends
and the father of the groom. It was an
event most pleasing to all their friends.
though It was a disappointment that the
necessary departure of Mr. Fischer, Sr..
for his home In Philadelphia on the samo
evening, caused them to hasten the happy
event somewhat, to the exclusion of the
many who would have been glad to wish
In ,a review of the week It would be dif
ficult to single out any one day or time
which gave more pleasure than another
when all were so good. The one disap
pointment, was the non-appearance of
Mrs. Tallman, who -was unable to sing.
Mrs. Hogle, wife of Colonel Hogle,
Commissioner from Colorado, is much
beloved by the people who constitute
the Colorado "family" living on Port
land Heights. She has a comfortable,
motherly way about her and a knack
of making people about her feel good
naturod and "at home." Mrs. Hogle
is a great admirer of Portland and
Mrs. Fllchcr.. who has. In company
with dear Mrs. Wiggins, dispensed
Californium hospitality at the Exposi
tion all Summer, 13 the wife of Com
missioner Filcher. She has attendod
six expositions prior to coming to
Portland, and no crowd Is too great to
tax her experience as a hostess. Mrs.
Fllchcr and Mrs. Wiggins have enter
tained more people, perhaps, at large
receptions this Summer than any of
tho other hostesses. Mrs. Filcher has
the "badge" craze, and hns already
collected over 200 different badges
from the Lewis and Clark Fair.
Mrs. Tiffany, wife of Commissioner
Tiffany, of Illinois, is entertaining her
mother. Mrs. L. M. De Vore, and her sis
ter, Mrst Frederick Mann, both of Sheri
dan Road. Chicago. They will be here
for several days and will be glad to greet
their friends at the Illinois building.
Several well-known people from Idaho
have called at the Idaho state building
during the past week to pay their re
spects to the hostesses and to look over
the building and the exhibits. Among
these have been Mr. E. L. Liggett, Stato
Commissioner of Insurance, with Mrs.
Liggett, and Mr. J. A. Fennell, architect
of the Idaho building, with Mrs. Fennel:
Mr. Fennell. by thhe way, has reve! , 1
many congratulations on the handsome
structure he designed. Mrs. James F. Bra
