THEY ALL LOOKED THE PART
Carolina Poverty or Hard Times Party
is Merriest Frolic of Season.
Several Cotillion Numbers Add to It
Intereitt and nig- Crowd of On
looker Xnjoy the fun.
HE only regrets concern
ing Saturday evening's
'poverty" or "hard
times" party at The Caro
lina were those enter
tained by the few who
hesitated at making themselves "look
ridiculous" and their regrets were genu
ine, for never has a merrier party been
assembled upon the floor.. Not only
did the motley throng "look the part"
but it acted it, and a company of guests
and onlookers which occupied every
available chair in the music hall found
something new to interest them through
out the entire evening.
Details of arrangements were in the
hands of a committee including Messrs.
Gardner, Kirkpatrick and Parmelee and
Misses Beall, Sewall and Check; several
cotillion numbers adding interest to the
order of dances which filled in the time
As for costumes it was a close race for
first among several. Mr.E. B. Aymar,
3d., of New York, and Mr. II. II. Kirk
Patrick of Philadelphia, were as "dizzy"
a pair of bums as ever made the round
of the slums, garbed in black striped ver
million sweaters and disreputable trous
ers, their faces concealed with a heavy
growth of beard, a patch or two and
huge banded cigars.
Mr. J. R. Mitchell of New York, as a
colored belle, was about as "rich" and
realistic a caricature as one could ask
lor, complete even to the "laugh." His
gown was of attractive wall-paper de
sign and texture, hosiery pink with
black diamonds, lingerie fluffy and lavish
ly displayed and millinery extensive, in
cluding the original "boird" which
"Nellie" made famous.
Mr. W. S. Dillon of Fitchburg, was a
realistic hobo, tin can and all, Mr. Paul
Gardner of Chicago, disreputable "paint
er," Mr. E. L. Scofield, Jr., of Stamford,
a "tough," Dr. VV. S. Parker of Boston,
a seedy French "dude," and Mr. Chas.
A. Mills of Pottstown, and Mr. E. S.
Parmelee of New Haven, "rubes."
Quite the opposite of this motley
throng was Mr. A. W. Nevins of Minne
apolis, as a stunning summer girl
playing in hard luck, possibly, but not
looking it garbed iu a white flannel
black striped outing suit, pink tie, sum
mer hat and flowing veil.
Mr. C. S. Heinz of Pittsburg, and Miss
Jeanne Pushee of Boston, were a realistic
colored aunt and uncle the disguise ab
solutely complete and Mr. Gardner
Hammond and Miss Frances Hammond
of Boston, a colored beau and belle.
Miss Margaret Johnson of Springfield,
Ohio, and Miss Angela Moore of New
York, were a dainty pair as "Jack and
Among others enjoying the dance but
not in costume, were Mrs. II. A. Harris
and Mrs. J. 11. Jamison of Chicago,
Miss Eleanor McCormiek and Miss
Harriet llorton of Williamsport, Miss
E. L. McGuire and Messrs. Spencer Wat
