STARTING out gloriously, in a Hare of golden sunlight the first
week of legislature has run itself out "like a long life to a bit
ter end." coming to sudden halt In a grey drizzle of valley mist
With a purely feminine desire to look her best
visiting legislators, the Jittle city roused herself unusually eary Monr
day morning, powdered her nose with the softest of' frost powders.'
smoothed her varl-colored dress carefully and waited expectantly
for the compliments she felt were her due. It may be that the law
makers, being law-makers, have lost all the sense of appreciation of
feminine charms that they were originally endowed with.; It may
also be that the seriousness of their duties sat more heavily than
usual upon their shoulders; whatever the reason of their preoccupa
tion the little citjr took" It to heart and after a second attempt to
elicit compliments, closed. her powder box with a decided click, cov
ered her pretty gown with a more serviceable raincoat, and has re
fused stubbornly to do anything further, atmospherically speaking,
for her visitors. v
' . So it Is altogether probable that when those legislators who have
been away tor the past lew days, return tomorrow, they will find a
rather subdued young hostess to welcome tbem. For there is really
no, excuse for even a man to display such stupidity, and perhaps bx
the time the next legislature convenes, they will have learned a few
ct the essentials of keeping on the good weather side of a tempera
mental Capital City.
-r'" 00 KING at the week from a social viewpoint, It seems to have
1 j been more successful. There was. the first of the week, the
i Monday, Night Dancing party, ah affair that naturally called for
pretty frocks. high heeled slippers and modish coiffures. Tuesday
night the Apollo club held the center of the social stage with the spot
light turned chiefly upon Cecil Fanning, singer and poet. Friday
afternoon matron and maid gathered at the Henry W. Meyers home
to attend the tea given In honor of Mrs. Frank Snedecor, who leaves
for an extended eastern visit, and Mrs. F. M. Jordan, ol Seattle, a
house guest of .Mrs. Meyers. . '
Minor social activities have held the attention of Capital City
folk' during the week, and although the past seven days have not
come, up to the standard of the pre-holiday season, they have been
pleasantly taken np with 'small affairs and have afforded Salem hos
tesses an opportunity of resting from the New Tear whirl. , ',
