A LADY OF SOCIETY.
Kemember. Ton wl seek to win
A social crown, that feelings were
Bestowed on Ton to hide within
Your hearts don't let tbem stir.
So when Damo Nature bids yon lanj-n,
ComnreBs your mirth into a smile;
And when tears threaten stop at half
Your grief, and sigh awhile.
So, gentle maiden, may yon be
A lady of society.
J'JuEt ordinary men were the long expected,
far-famed, much entertained Fan-America
delegates. Ton all know what that implies.
How with pleasant environments, congenial
company, and the domestic animal elevated,
s it were, they prove the most delightful
creatures. Such was the case on lhe eve of
the reception. They all seemed to be in a
happy self-satisfied frame of mind and in
lent upon making themselves agreeable.
Some of them were very amusing in their
efforts to be so, for in broken Engli'h they
jfound it difficult to entertain the ladies with
the usnal small talk indulged in on snch
occasions. Upon the object of their travels in
the United States, however, their vocabulary
jwas quite extended and the more skillful of
the ladies at once introduced that topic and let
them do the talking, so, of course, they
jwere pronounced charming by their South
ern escorts. A few of them were

AU IMPRESSIVE CEREMONY.
, Miss Catherine Drexel, the Philadelphia
.heiress, this week gave herself to the church.
.Archbishop Ryan, Bishop Phelan and numer
ous dignitaries of the Catholic Church assisted
in the rites by which she renonnced the world
and became a postulant in the order of the
Bisters of Mercy.
s The pretty little chapel of Mercy Convent,
Its altar illuminated with myriads of wax
tapers and the sunlight streaming in through
the handsome, stained windows, made a very
The long procession of black and white
Tobed prists and nuns, with lighted tapers,
that filed in and took seats on either hide of the
chapel made it all the more impressive. Arch
Ibisbop Ryan, in his robes of purple and gold
'lace, and Bishop fhelan. in white satin, took
Sheir seats on the platform. When all was in
readiness, Miss Drexel, a vision of loveliness,
3n a wedding attire of cream satin, with a long
(train and a handsome veil exquisitely draped
.around her slender figure, entered, attended
Dj the Mother Superior and assistant, in their
.somber garments, and four little fairj like
maidens in white, wo ot them bearing her
.train. Various rites were observed, and then
she assumed the kneeling position in the cen
ter of the chapel, snd retained the attitnde

At the conclusion she was escorted from the
chapel, to return in a lew-moments in the qniet

;tae Mother Superior and assistant. Receiving
the veil at the bands of the Bishop, the final
scene was enacted when she prostrated herself
on the floor and so remained while the entire
procession of priests and nuns and the few
visitors present left the chapel.
.Tbe whole ceremony was beautiful and be
ttlng, but it was inexpressibly sad. Pocket
Jiandkerchlers were in frequent use by her
relatives present, and unshed tears filled her
Society both here and in Philadelphia, where
Miss Drexel was a reigning belle, are mystified
as to the reasons of her seclusion from the
world, but that she is sincere in her convictions
regarding the step being the proper one for her
to take no one doubts. Her fortune remains
under her own control until she takes the
black veil, some two years hence With great
Interest her career will be watched to see if
ber cherished plan for educating the Indians
will be successful. Sister Catherine is her
name in religion.
A CLUSTER OF MARGUERITES
figured in three prominent weddings during
the past week. Not the dainty little white
flower Marguerites, but three beautiful clrls
who spell their names M-a-r-g-a-r-e-t. Two of
them figured as brides and one. Miss Margaret
Easton, as maid of honor to her sister. Miss
Cora Belle Easton, who was married Wedn
day evening in the East Liberty Presbyterian
Church to Mr. John Hubbard. The weadlng
was an exceedingly pretty one; the bnde was
Attended to the altar by six ushers, four bride
maids, a maid of honor and her father, bhe
was dressed in white muscovite silk trimmed
with dnchess lace, her maid of honor in white
silk, and two of hei bridesmaids in delicate
pink and two in blue. They are now enjoying
the sweets of the honeymoon existence an
Very picturesque was the wedding of Miss
Margaret Shaw Tuesday evening in the North
Presbyterian Church, Allegheny. The groom
Vas Mr. George Reed Lawrence, and maid of
lionor Miss Katharine, a sister of the bride.
Ihe bride was arrayed in a trained gown of
leavy white satin and the maid in a Grecian
tostume of eoft silk exactly matching the hue
of the golden chrysanthemums carried. All
the decorations were of the golden flowers.

- u ijqUE LOVELY BRIDES.
Mas Ida iTiFahnestock, the heiress, of
Homewood, male a charming picture Tuesday
evening in a white faille costume, with veil and
orange Sowers. I think Mr. David Boyd
thought so too from the way he looked at her
after Bev. Dewitt Benbam pronounced her his
ferine. The wedding occurred in the drawing
room of the residence of the bride's grand
mother, widow of the late B. L. Fahncstock, at
Homewood. Immediately after the reception
the happy pair were driven to their own home,
dispensing with the customary wedding trip.
With the bridal chorus from "Lohrengrin"
sung by 60 selected voices in the First Presby
terian Church. Tuesday evening, Mr. C. C.
tiiedle condncted MiS3 Laura B. McCIintock to
the altar. Bev. Dr. George T. Pnrves talked to
them a few moments and the same young lady
was conducted away from the altar as Mrs.
Biedle. Bbe was attired in a white silk dress of
dancing length and wore a handsome necklace
of pearls. Mr. Siedle, who la noted for his
knusieal voice, will no doubt maintain the
proper degree of sweetness when the tones are
designed for the ear of his fair young bride.
They are at present visiting Eastern cities.
,In courtly attire of embroidered crepe du
chene. Miss Mary Mackenzie Morrison met
Dr. Frederick Eggers at the altar of Trinity
Church Thursday evening, and became bis
'for better and for worse." Four ushers in
full evening dress preceded the bride and her
father up the aisle, and also Miss Jean Eggers
ai maid of honor. Miss Eggers was very
prettily dressed in white silk, and the ushers
carried white scrolls tied with white ribbon.
Mr. aud Mrs. .Eggers are cozily ensconced in a
pretty home on Ohio street.

There is no question that, however considered,
the great concert for the benefit of the Pitts
burg Domestic Training School at Old City
Hall, on Tuesday evening, November 19. will
be tho great social aud artistic event of the
year. It is practically supported by the rank
aDd file of society, and the demand for
tickets promises to be unprecedented. Up to
yesterday the ladies bad sold over $1,000 worth
of tickets, leaving only about 400 tickets to be
placed on sale to-morrow at Kleber's,when it will
open promptly at 9 o'clock. However, those that
come with the cash at that time will be on an
equal footing with those that purchased the
general tickets in advance, as a clean plan of
the seats will be presented for their choice.
When the seats have been all sold but a lim
ited number of admission tickets will be placed
on sale. Already it is known-that there will be
a number of theater, or rather "concert par
ties," present One of these, to be given by
Mrs. Henry Floyd, will be for 28 persons. The
audience will be very swell, and beyond a
doubt the most fashionable ever gathered in
Old City Hall, or any other hall in Pittsburg.
The interest taken in this concert has been
enormous, and the coming of the divine 3 uch.
under such remarkable circumstances, bas
whetted the popular feeling to a vhite heat,

THE DRAMATIST'S PRIVILEGE.
The man who murder does must meet
A halter or a felon's cell;
The thief if caught will cool his feet
In durance vile 'tis well!
But dramatists whene'er they will
May murder English faith they do
It often and may steal their fill
And ne'er their sinning rue. H. Q.
It is probable that "A Poor Relation" is
the best comedy we shall see in this city
this season. Mr. Bussell has earned a far
greater reputation as an actor of distinct
genius than he has ever had before, and the
play puts Mr. Kidder into a very promis
ing place among native dramatists. Pitts
burg has shown unmistakably that it ap
preciated the play and the players, for the
audiences at the Grand Opera House were
very large, and increased steadily all the
Mr. Bussell has a great future before
him. He stands almost alone among the
actors of this generation who have taken
comedy for their field, as a master of quiet
natural methods and artistic graces. Miss
Qrace Filklns is being developed in a very
proper school, and her talents will bring her to
a high place if she stays in that school, and
The Idea of bringing a prima donna of Miss
Emma Juch's rank all the way from Baltimore
to sing at the grand concert to be given on No
vember 19, for the benefit of the Pittsburg
Doinestto Training School, is a pretty novel
and bold one. But that concert is organized
on very original and striking lines all through,
ana it promises to be a great success artistically
Nattjuallt the talk of new theaters ls
starting again, but I am informed on excellent
authority that Mr. Gus Hartz's visit to this
city last week was not expressly for the pur
pose of securing the Jackman building. He
looked at it, I believe, and at other sites, pos
sibly, but there is little likelihood of anew
.ueau-r irom mar, gentleman's hands. There
is another negotiation on foot which may
amount to something in the near future and
if a new first-class theater is to be built for next
season the preliminaries for building it ought
to be concluded before the end of the year
but nothing has been settled.
Thkke is a change in the theatrical bill all
around this week. There is absolutely nof a
" tumtjuy in sigm at any or tne theaters.
next week the scene changes pleasantly again,
with 'Clover" at the Bijou and "Kajanka." a
spectacular novelty, at the Opera House.
A SEASON of opera comique, which promises
to be of unusual interest is that which will be
inaugurated by the McCaull Opera Company
at the Bijou Theater next week. Von Suppe's
latest opera, "Clover," will then bo given for
the first time here, and the event promises to
be of note both from a theatrical and a social
point of view. "Clover" was adapted into
English from Suppe's "Die Jagd Nach Dem
(Buck," and was arranged to suit the capabili
ties and peculiarities of the well-known mem
bers of the McCaull operatic organization.
Despite Suppe's great successes in "Bocaccio,"
"Hell-nan" and "Fatlnltia," ''Clover" is said to
exceed even these in the qualities which go to
make a well balanced opera comique. The
opera is in a prologue and three acts, and
the scenes transpiring as they do in four
different countries, give opportunities for a
variety of costumes and scenic effects very
raieiy wiiuesaeu in comio opera, Dome or tne
most charming music that has yet emanated
from the prolirlc fancy of Franz Von Snnne will
be found in "Clover." In spirit freshness and
gracefulness nothing finer could be asked for,
and in its sentimental music there are melodies
sufficient to stock a ballad singer with material
for a year. The cast ot "Clover," is perhaps
the strongest that is to be seen to-day in comic
opera, for it includes such well-known people
asDe Wolf Hopper, Marion Manola, Mine.
Cottrelly, Eugene Oudlu, Annie Myers, Jeffer
son de Angelis, Carrie Burton, Josephine
Knapp, Charles W. Dongan, Herbert Cripps,
Lindsay Morison, Edmund Stanley, George
Wade, Louis Shrader and George Cerbi. The
only introduced bit in "Clover" is the now fa
mous topical song, "But There Are Things It is
Better Isot to Dwell On," which was written by
Sydney Rosonfeld for De Wolf Hopper.

well the name of Mr. Charles H. Hoyt, the
author of these jumbles of rough and timely

for the Boston Post. In that way he learned
what kind of fun the capricious publio enjoys,
as his success as a farcenr shows. To-morrow
evening his latest and greatest success, "A
Midnight Bell," will be produced for the first
time in the city at the Grand Opera House
In this city. In "A Midnight Bell" Mr.
Hoyt has made a most successful effort to rise
to a higher plane as a dramatist He la an ad
mirable sketcber of characteristics and nses
unconsidered trifles with skill. This talent Is
said to be shown in "A Midnight Bell." Tbeit
is an absence of the farce contrivance and of
the rough and tumble situation. The meat of
the piece is the picturing of the characters
and scenes of a New England village. Some
melodious music and a few specialties intro
duced naturally add to the attractions of the
performance. All tho scenery used In the piece
is carried by the company, and is said to be
wonderfully realistic the same having been
painted from photographs taken from various

This scheme presents nine openings for
musical entertainments, giving room fur wide
variety. The Programme Committee, of which
Mr. Charles H. Jarris. of Philadelphia, is
Chairman, invite suggestions, as to details,
from members. The assistance of an orchestra
will be bad in the afternoon concerts, the play

to do securea ior tne evenings.
A healthy interest is being manifested in the
association by Pittsburg's music makers, though
there is yet room for many more members from
this neck of the woods. We western residents
must bear in mind that only in proportion as we
help on the Philadelphia meeting can we claim
support from the other end of the State
when the meeting comes to be held
here. Those who join hereafter can have
the satisfaction, at least of knowing that they
are in the best company; as witness
