A LEAP YEAR German at The Holly
Inn Saturday evening, was the
most brilliant affair of its kind in the
history of this hotel and one of the
prettiest and most enjoyable of the many
social events which are always a feature
of winter life in the Village.
Many exquisite toilettes were seen
upon the floor and their soft colors made
a beautiful picture which was brought
out sharply by the more sombre evening
dress of the men which formed the back
ground. The beauty of the scene was
further enhanced by powdered coiffures
which were worn by the women.
The details were arranged with fault
less care, the favors were numerous and
in excellent taste, and the figures unique

MEN WERE MERE FIXTURES I
Young Women of The Carolina Tnrn
Tables at Leap Year Cotillion.
Dignified Men and OfttinieM Portly
Preside and fttvagg'er Youths
THE ME were mere fixtures at the
Leap Year Cotillion given by the
young women of The Carolina, Monday
evening, simply necessary accessories to
make the occasion complete. And while
they were in a measure, favored and
flattered, they were nevertheless, made
to feel their utter insignificance; to un
derstand something what it meant to
"be a girl."
They were not even permitted to seat
their fair partners, bow courteously and
mutter softly, "Enjoyed it so much,
doncher know ;" and in the first dance it
looked very much as if they were to be
denied the privilege of leading in the
dancing. In other words tables weie
reversed and some of the twentieth cen

the ball room for the quite coi ner of the
Club. Winsome dames at the favor
tables there were not, but instead, swag
ger young youths who did not dance and
who did not even care to try.
Becoming shirt-waist costumes of
white took the place of decollete evening
gowns among the women, and the
"swallow tail" and white tie were barred
among the men, in favor of the com
The scene, however, lacked none of
its wonted brilliancy, and because of the
novel feitures introduced, it unquestion
ably takes its place as the most unique
and one of the most enjoyable of the
formal affairs which are always a bril
liant feature of the winters social life
here.. Much credit is due the committee
of managers of which Mrs. St, John
Smith of Portland, Maine, was chair
man. Dancing began at nine and ceased at
twelve, and the figures included many
which were new, novel, humorous
and picturesque. The favors were in
