IN ST. VALENTINE'S HONOR
The Carolina Cotillion is Replete With
Novelty and Surprise
Onlookers Tax Capacity of the Music
Hall and Merrymaking II hum
lllot Among- tlie Dancers
REPLETE with novel
ty and surprise, Tues
day evening's St. Val
entine's Carolina Cotil
lion was easily the sea
son's most brilliant affair
and enjoyed by a com
pany o f onlookers,
which taxed the capaci
ty ol the music hall. Decorations, fa
vors and figures in keeping with the oc
casion, enhanced the effect and from
opening march to confetti melee, there
was never a dull moment for the dancers
among whom merrymaking ran riot.
The hits of the evening were new fig
uics muiuuing tne "Winter Ixirl" in
which three ''devoted admirers" bearing
a fan, a parasol and a novel, followed
humbly while a "gay coquette' danced
with a "hated rival." Reversed in the
"Winter Man," three young women pur
sued a gay Lothario offering a cane, a
cigarette or a hat, as a more favored ad
mirer was whirled about the hall ; at the
signal in each figure, some one of the
faithful being rewarded with a dance.
Appropriate to the dav was the "Ladv
Fair" figure in which young women held
behind them in either hand, a heart or a
mitten, and young men guessed, usually
wrong, often assisted by sleight of hand
transference. Reversed, the young wo
men drew hearts or spades ; the results
of "guesses" in either case, a dance or
a trip down to the end of the long line.
Reference to the day was also made in
Valentine favors for the women and
comics for the men "Forget-me-not"
and "Remember Me."
The elaborately planned cake-walk
caught the crowd,two cakes "spotless in
their immaculency," as uncle George
would express it, being displayed in
state before the judges, Mr. and Mrs. C.
W. Middleton, Mr. and Mrs. I. S. Robe
sou, Messrs. O. P. Clay and P. S. Mac
loughlin,guarded by a liveried page arm
ed with a miniature carbine, at the head
of the hall. In the first trial most of the
field was eliminated; Mr. R. S. Durstine
and Miss Ruby Sewall, and Mr. N. S.
Hind and Miss Edith Houseman, win
ning first and second in the final. Two
favor inarches were also much enjoyed
the first "St. Valentine" led by Mr.
Durstine and Miss Sewall, and the sec
ond "In Tokio" by Mr.C. M. Fink and
Miss Carolyn Fuller who also assisted
Mr. Justus Kendall,the leader,in various
The potato race "Murphy's Delight"
for the men, and egg race "Sambo's
Choice" for the women, were both en
tered into with a zest which brought
down the "house," numerous chairs and
number partners were "bowled" for, the
"nine pin" struck coming forward to the
The "Certainly" and "With Pleasure'
two steps were extremely funny and
brand new. In the first half the men
favored and danced with the men, in the
second, the women took out the women
and last of all, the women took out the
men and led! 'Nuf said, for the situa
tions arising are easily imagined ! In the
other detached objects, and a few of the "Gypsy.Land" favor waltz, picturesque
participants, ihe same was also true of caps and turbans made a pleasing picture

ter of the hall, were fished for by as
many young women. In "Moonlighf'six

proved to be partners for six young
men, and eighteen of "The Modern Fig
ger's Striking, Very," were nothing
more or less than nine young men and
nine young women looking for all the
world, like huge nine pins. In this
blowouts were the noise makers. In the
St. Valentine's march floral wands and
sunflowers were used and in the "In

canes. Dancing began at nine and
ceased at midnight, The Carolina orches

ed at intermission.
