Kills who itHed to play golf In the early
mornings and late afternoons brighten
the links no more "with their red jack

they uro seen hopping about the tennis

charming attitudes there, yet on the
whole they aren't as picturesque as
making drives over the fair hillsides

young man and a morning porch party,
with a. dozen young women (or old
ones). They listen to beautiful French
and Oerman and Spanish, all spoken
by the well-behaved phonograph, and
then .they go home and talk about the
cultivation of the car. There Is to be
such a party this afternoon.

HEltli: was a woman who went to
a tea one day. When she came
home that evening her husband.
who wus rather more Interested In his
wife's affairs than the average, asked
politely: "Did you have a good time?"
Perhaps part of his interest was due to
the gown she woie, It was a while
lacy thing and was particularly be
coming. He knew h6w much It cost,
too, for he had just paid the bill and he
looked ut the dress with additional re
spect In .consequence. "Did you have
a good time?" ho Inquired politely.
rtlls wife had a queer expression In
her eyes. "Oh yes," she answered, "I
had a beautiful time, of course. You
always have a beautiful time ut a tea."
"Must have a ripping time," he re
marked. "Everybody talking at once
and not much to eat."
"No they didn't nil talk ut once to
day," she said, "Maybe if they had"
but there she stopped ubruptly. The
queer look In her eyes was still evi
dent. "See here, Mary Ellen," said her hus
band quietly, "something's the matter."
"What could be the matter?" replied
Mary Ellen, temporizing, "Nothing
ever happens at a tea, unless a waiter
spBls coffee on your best dress or some
body Introduces "ou to your prettiest
enemy. The wnl.ers were careful today
and he people there didn't know me
well enough to bo my enemies."
"Yes, but what was It?" persisted
the uncomfortable husband. (The only
worse condition than having a husband,
who never notices anything Is to have
on-a who notices everything und wants
to turn your soul Inside out.)
"Did you over-hear somebody saying
things, about you?"
''Dear, no!" she hastened to reply,
"They never say things about you at
a tea that they don't mean you to
hear. They daren't, it wasn't what
they suld about me," she added, "If they
hadn't said them to me,"
"Well, I'll be (-r-)."
"Oh, no, you won't," she Interrupted.
"They wero pollto und nil that, but
I'm going up stairs to have a, good cry
when I get through telling you.",
"It was this way," she continued; "I
met Mrs, Grande. Don't you remember
she used to copie to our house when
Iwas a little girl and I've known her
a long time. I 'thought, of comae, the
recognized me, but we've been awuy
from this city so long that bhe didn't
biow pio from the queen of the FIJI
islands. The way the pool' woman was
racking her bruins to recall me and
be nice was pathetic. 'You can't be
really cordial, you know, when you
nre trying to catalogue a person In your
mind. Sho couldn't, of course, nnd she
said queer things nt random. The tea
was at Mrs. Y's. You know that splen
did colonial house, und Mrs. Grande
looked about with a satisfying gaze
nnd said! 'Isn't It a perfectly Jienvenly
house, nnd no horrid little double
houses any where on tho block. Isn't
It n mercy?' . ,
Being the resident of a certain double
house on tho next block,. dldnlt tend to
mnkc me feel n't ensc In Mrs, Grande's
"Then I ' wns Introduced to that
churmlng Miss Dtlnnt. She strnlght
way began to" carry on a conversation
left over from tho last person, and' the
first statement she made was that can
cers nre undoubtedly hereditary and
then she went on to' prove It until I
thought I should screnm with terror
und nervousness., . You know great
Aunt Maria died with one and thoy say
it skips n generation and I've ulwnys
worried about It. I'm going to put a
mustard plaster on my side Immediate
ly after dinner. I think there's a lump
under my arm."
"Was that all?" No, Indeed. I met
Mrs. K. She wns a friend of mother's
nnd she didn't understand my name.
She proceeded to ask me what I
thought of women who had the misfor
tune to ,be married to politicians nnd
whether It wasn't ns bad as It they
wero prize-fighters. I remembered, how
hnrd you wanted to be In the councils
and the secret yearning you had, for
the state senate, and the way you went
out nights Inst fall during tho cam
paign, and the ofllco you're holding
now, and I'm afraid I looked embar
rassed. She acted as if she'd been ac
cusing me of stealing the spoons and
foil to, commenting hysterically upon
the weather. Then there wus Mrs.
Manning. She talked a' steady stream
about tho danger of sending boys to
college and the awful things that hap
pen to them and the way thoy turn out
and there Is George just going In
September and and It was a horrid
old tea and I'm going, up stairs now.
No, I don't want nny dinner. I don't
think I'll ever want dinner ngaln. Oh,
yes, I had a perfectly beautiful time,
and I wish T was back In AA'estlnke,
where they didn't make blunders that
make me cry; so I do. i George El
lerton If you say a single woid and
pity me. or pet me, or anything I'll
leave you, so I will!"
Probably none of the hlgh-salaiied
church vocalists in Scrnnton enjoy a
greater degree of popularity than Ma
dame Lennrc Thomson, solo contralto of
the Elm Park choir. Although Madame
Thomson has been a resident ot Scran
ton for about a ye ir, her career as a
MADAM 1-2 LENORE THOMSON.
musician has been so unobtrusive that
few outside of tho con?) egntion of the
church wheio she delights tho listeners
each Sunday have until recently realised
the widu scope of her talents. At each
succeeding appeal ance In conceit, how
ever, the singer has demonstrated her
capabilities for more ambitious work,
Madame Thoms6n is a dramatic singer of
raio ability, possessing the sympathetic
power, repose lu rendition and the fasci
nating yet dlgnilled stage pivhcuce that
enable the great aitlst to thrill oie In tho
alias of tho grand opeia. Her church
work, which Is of unusual excellence,
gives but faint Idea of tho reserve quali
ties of her rich contralto voice. The sub
ject of tho sketch is a native of Minne
apolis, but has been engaged lu church
and conceit work for several years past
hi New York and other eastern cities,
and wherever she has appeared bus re
ceived glowing tilbutes fiom the press,'
much In the lino of the following from
the Chicago Record-Herald:
"Mrs. Leuore Thomson, who comes to
Chicago highly icconnneivled ns a singer
of Hue vocal quality and Intelligent nr
tlstlc inethqd, made her fhst appearance,
heio In concert in tho Masonlo Temple
building Thuisday evening. Tho slnsor,
who scored a success with a number ot
songs by Tostl, Gilchrist and Knto A'an
nali, possesses a contralto of rich and
warm quality, und wide range."
Madame Thomson Is a charming con
versationalist, of sunny temperament und
unassuming mauneis, and is a creat so
cial favorite. She has had frequent and
tempting offers to appear In opera, but
prefers tho modest career of tho church
soloist to tho fame nnd nttendlnif dis
comforts of an operatic ptlma donna,
