week to the Rose Festival. Between "the
greeting of out-of-town relatives and ac
quaintances lured here by our splendid
carnivals of the two years before this, and
attending- events Incident to last week's
festivities, one had little time to devote
to society.
Portland Heights women have been es
pecially busy and Interested in the late
Ropo Show at the Armory and the riding
set have been attending the performances
of the Society Circus. A few small din
ner parties were given. In most cases
rorly in the evening, so that a parade
might not be missed. No large theater
parties marked the six days past, but
the coming of Maude Adams In 'What
Kvery Woman Knows" will be the signal
for society to turn out en masse to this
most important, to many, theatrical at
traction of the year.

was given to the brilliant Hoffman
Hum wedding and reception on Thurs
day. The wedding was celebrated at 4
o"clock in Trinity Church. The large

Morrison, assisted by Bishop Charles
Scadding, a vested choir sang. The
bride, then Miss Caroline Couch Burns,
entered upon the arm of her father.
Walter John Burns. She was roberl in
shimmering white satin. Frills of real, '
ancestral lace were about the neck and
long, tightly-fitted sleeves and fringed
the overskirt. This pannier effect was
drawn rather tightly in the back and
caught in the folds of the veil with tiny '
rosettes of lillies-of-the-valley. The i
veil, of filmy white tulle, was held in '
place on her forehead by a circlet of
orange blos&oms. It fell in a billowy
mass from the crown of her head and
trailed beyond the long train of the
gown. The bridal bouquet was of lav
ender orchids and lllies-of-the-valley
ana cascaded from neck to hem, hiding
the front of the dress.
