The officials of the Hunt Club have practi cally dropped their personal affairs and are bending all of their energy toward getting things in readiness for the afternoon of November 7. the date on which the show will first open Its doors. "Avoidance of mistakes made la the management of other horse shows has been the watch word of the local management, and unless some unforseen accident should take place, the arrange ments for having each class ready for the eyes of the Judges will be ready and waiting at the opening hour of the show. The Hunt Club has been fortunate In being able to obtain a Dullding so well adapted for holding a horse show as the Oriental building, and those who go to the show have a pleasant surprise raU Ing them. The expense of constructing the show ring, the boxes, reserved seits and the stables has amounted to over H0,000p) but the club officials, since the club was first Btarted, have never done anything by halves. wnat is also going to assure the suc cess of the horse show la the hearty co operation of the prominent business men of the city. Just at present the horse how is the sole topic of conversation, not only among the club members, but those Interested In making any local un dertaking a success.

Oct. 19 With Miss Ethel Roosevelt remaining In the schoolroom under the tutelage of an English governess. Miss Helen Taft, only daughter of the Secretary of War. going In for a college career In preference to a tour of the world, and presentation to so ciety with all the eclat of a Cabinet de butante, and the Baroness Elizabeth Rosen, the 17-year-old daughter of ths Russian Ambassador sailing away No vember to make her debut in St. Peters burg and remain abroad a year, the den butante ranks at the capital for 1907 cease to be of National importance. Miss Taft was graduated last Jujd from the same fashionable school that claimed Miss Ethel Roosevelt as a pupil for five years, and. Is now establishing another record -for scholarship at Bryn Mawr In returning to St. Petersburg to pre sent their daughter to court and Intro duce her to society, the Baron and Bar oness Rosen are following the traditions of their land. During her two years' resi dence In America the youthful Baroness has formed no schoolgirl friendships, gone to no holiday cotillions and attended no football game. She Is never on the street except In company of her mother or governess, and has only recently been permitted to go to the play in the same company, A petite blonde, she looks even less than her years, but Is very thoroughly educated and highly accom plished. , While the very marked fashion In which the Baroness Elizabeth has been guarded from all American Influences has occasionally given offense to some well-meaning mothers, who sought to In clude her In their Juvenile company, most persons recognize the right of the Am bassador and his wife to bring up their daughter. in their own way. The Washington lifs'of this future belle has been In marked contrast to her Im mediate predecessor In the Russian Em bassy, Countess Marguerite Cassinl, the adopted daughter of the former Ambas sador, who Is now at Madrid. The CounteBS Marguerite came to the United States from China, where she had lived from childhood, and at the age of 17 was the recognized head of her father's house In Washington. For five years this bril liant and beautiful girl held a most un usual place In official life, dominating completely the young social Bet, which Included In turn the daughters of the Secretary of State and the daughter of the President." Count Cassini's predecessor, M. Kotz bue, on the other hand, refused to bring his family to Washington, and. spent as little time as possible in America him self, making the education of his daugh ter and her presentation In society the excuse for his final retirement from this post. There will be debutantes, of course, 20 of them, at least, several of them of more than local Interest. Chief of the latter will be M'.ss Martha Bacon, daugh ter of the Assistant Secretary of State, who Is credited with having declined the post of Ambassador to Berlin, because he and Mrs. Bacon had made all arrange ments for. presenting .their daughter in Washington this Winter. They have Just taken a new home on Sixteenth street, and will entertain extensively. Miss Ba con, through her old family connections in New York "and Boston, will also see the social life of those cities Miss Carol Newberry, dauglter of the Assistant Secretary of the avy; Miss Constance Hoyt, daughter of the Solicitor General: Miss Eleanor Ridgley, daughter of the Controller of the Currency: Miss GaTrlington. daughter of General and Mrs. B. A. Garllngton. are all candidates for social honors. Among the resident fam ilies there will be Miss Carrie' Louise Munn, daughter of the- late Charles A. Munn, formerly of Chicago,' who will per haps be the greatest heiress of this year's group of buds. Miss Tulce Noble, daughter of the late William B. Noble, of this city, and grand daughter of the late Senator Yulee, of Florida, and Miss Elizabeth Parker, daughter of Representative Richard Wayne Parker, of New Jersey, are two handsome belles likely to make good In the race for belleshlp. There will be no debutantes from dip lomatic circles, the Cabinet or Supreme Court families, as the young people of these homes are already in society-or still In the nursery or schoolroom. Miss Elsie Aldrlch, youngest daughter of the Sena tor from Rhode Island, will come out this Winter, and may possibly take part in the late season in Washington, but her formal presentation will be at the family home In Providence. Senator and MrB. Aldrlch have no house In Washing ton, and rarely spend any time here be yond the regular Congressional season. Then they have apartments at the Arlington. STRAUSS' GREATEST OPERA Composer Says "Electra" Will Be Even Greater Than "Salome." BERLIN, Oct. 19. "Greater than "Sa lome, In a musical sense," one hears of Richard Strauss' new opera, "Electra." It will have Its first appearance soon after Christmas. . The story of the opera follows that elaboration of the myth seen In Hoff manstahl'a drama. The composer keeps as strictly to this author's terrible text as he d4d to Oscar Wilde's in the case of "Salome." Classical scholars ..will recall that the story of Electra, daughter of Agamem non and Clytemnestra, was a favorite theme of the early Greek tragedians. Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides. After her father had been murdered by her mother, Electra saved the life of her young brother, Orestes, and afterward helped him avenge their father by slay ing their mother. It is still uncertain whether the first hearing of the Strauss opera will he In Berlin oi in Dresden. The probability H that Strauss will prefer Dresden, where "Salome" was produced, for he has said many times that he is averse to having a premiere In this capital. With Vegard to the new opera, Strauss said for print: "People wondered at 'Salome' i they made fun of it, scorned it, then they ac cepted It. They will wonder still more at my 'Electra.' They will scoff still more, but they will end by accepting It." The orchestration presents the same dif ficulties that were seen in "Salome." The composer has endeavored to get even more marvelous effects of color Into his music. It Is said that in one scene the music is actually bewildering in its pow?r and intensity. This is the episode where Electra rescues her brother. Orestes, from the murders of her father.
