two quaint encores. The pleasure of
hearing her sing many times in the
city is greatly anticipated.
Miss Porter escorted the guests
hrough the tea garden, where a Chi
nese family, idols, a church and other
curios were seen in miniature. Then
she introduced them, to Mrs. M. W.
Purvis, a missionary from Argentine,
who poured tea. Mrs. Purvis wore a
beautiful oriental costume. The table
was very attractive with an imported
tea service, centered with a dwarf
orange- tree in full bearing in a jar-

of yellow shaded tapers. v
A salad course -was served by
