Holiday Merrymaking Runs Riot at
First of Season's Cotillions.
Decorations, favor and Tig-ares In
Keeping- with the Season and
Prog-ram One of Novelty.
ELDOM has an even-
ing provided more
genuine pleasure than the
Xmas Cotillion at The
Inn, enjoyed by the en
tire Village and a pleas
ant prophecy for the more
formal social events which it inaugurates
and which add brilliancy to the winter.
Decorations, figures and favors all em
phasized the spirit of the Holiday season
and merrymaking ran riot among the
dancers which a big crowd of onlookers
followed with an interest which made
them mental participants.
Exquisite in its decorations was the
music hall, its special feature two twin
Christmas trees resting on either side of
the stage, hung with small crimson
bells, strung with tinsel and flanked
with bright-berried holly. Entwining
wires running from the centre of the
hall to all sides, were streamers of Eng
lish ivy, with large crimson bells at four
corners ; a monster cluster of mistletoe
in the centre. Above the entrance and
alcoves were streamers of ivy and on
the wall panels large crimson cardboard
bells, which were also used with red and
white ribbons, for chair markers. The
favor tables were in white, struDg with
holly; the finishing touch of all, four
huge stockings (two red and two white)
which hung from the fireplace mantel.
The program began at nine with a
grand march led by Mr. II. S. Haskell
of New York and Miss Theodate Clough
of Lynn, a program of novelty and sur
prise following, marches also being led
by Mr. Julian T. Bishop of Bridgeport
and Miss Ethel Check of New York, and
Mr. J. S. Walker of Orange, Va, and
Miss Maude Hapgood of Boston. The
novelties in figures included a burlesque
ballet in which young men garbed in
tarlatan skirts worn over their evening
suits, won or lost partners by their
ability to dance ; the Cinderella number
in which young women were claimed
for partners with slippers selected from
a basket and young men by personal ar
ticles drawn from a hat ; the matching
of all nation flags, and jig-saw puzzle
pictures made from colored postals.
The familiar potato race was also en
joyed by both men and women, the pos
session of a colored ball meant a dance,
and the men struggled vainly with bon
nets and sashes which they were required
to tie in bowknots, always the conscious
ness that delay meant another "left over"
man for a partner c.iusing disastrous
haste; several "Paul Jones" and "puss
in the corner" figures adding variety.
The favors were mistletoe and holly
sprays, Christmas toys, all nation flags,
tissue plumes, boxe3 of confectionery,
Pall Mall cigarettes, and novelties.
