It was as simply ccjvicted as the best and most conservative fete could dictate, and a charming affair iii^ory way.. This week that of Miss Barret nd Mr. AVilliams will be the important ol with Miss Manson's and Mr. Linzee'a toillow in .January. Mrs. Almy's tea for her ugbter Thursday from iw York, brother of Prof. Barrett Wcndeil,and ono of ttie leading societ;,' amateur.-: of.liat city, took the l>art o� the old cliovalier, no of his best and favorite roles. It was u�ed and iressed most artistically. Mr. H.H. Gay, Mr. Parkmau Dexter and Miss Clan, Hogg were the others in the cast, which Was an ezoeptionally rtrong one. Indeed, fuch a Bnlshed amateur performance has been Siazi this year. I TABLE GOSSIP. --Each week for the past month has had its specially fashionable �n-odding. and that of Miss Grew and Mr. Morgan Thursday was worthy to take ranic as the most notable. It tvas a milder day than tliat of Miss West's and Mr. Ames',^^'l>ich accounted in part lor the greater crowd of people in attendance. Mr. Doyle again lent his artistic hand to the pulpit decorations, �\vhich wero all in green this time, the �svide border of maiden hair fern, extending around the base of the pulpit, being exceedingly effective. Great palms and ferns, with other docor.ativo green, wore massed around, completely concealing tho wood-�work of tho platform below the pulpit. Covering the font Was a large basket of meruiet and white roses. Tho bride, leaning upon lier father's arm, entered the cliuroli at 12.30 promptly. Her four bridesmaids led the way, each gowned in cream white nun's veilinit. trimmed with silk inullo, and ca].'rying a big cluster of niormot roses. They wero the sisters of tho bride and groom, Jliss Elsie and Miss Rita Grew, and Miss Julia and Louisa Morgan. All four wero tall and stately, neither very dark nor - very light, but all protty girls and. charming in their carriage and style as they stood each side of the bridal pair. Miss Grew made an ideal bride, gracious, handsome, diguifiod and serene. Her gown, of soft gros grain silk, fell in graceful folds close to herflgi^ire, Tho edge of the train-was bordered with white ostrich feathers, and tho very prettily arranged tulleveil was held on tlie blonde 'hair by orange buds and their leaves. Tho corsage was made slightly open, and around tlie throat yvas a triple string of pearls, her only ornament. White roses and ferns made up tbe boutiuet. Her hands, like the brides of tlio previous-week, �\vero gloveless. A fine contrast the pair made as they stood before Mr. Her-ford, the groom being dark and tall, a strikingly handsome man, and tho bride of tho purest blondo type, only a little less of stature. Mr. Junius Morgan, tlie groom's cousin, was best mim, and Mr. Arthur Sturgos, J\Ii-. Stewart Brown and Mr. J. 6. King also came over from Now York to oili-oiato as usbers with Blossrs. Bradleo. Grew. Wheelwright, Codman and Dexter of Boston. Mpsti cf tliem aro classmates oC Mr. Jlorgan, liarvard, 'S9. Mrs. Morgan, the mother of the groom, attracted tho most admiring attention next tho bridal party. Slio was superbly gowned in rich pe.arl gray satin, brocaded in fleiur do lis pat-torn, tho skirt a court train and tlie corsage V shaped. The full sleeves wore of crepe of the same exquisite color, and in tlio brownhair, dressed to show the sliape of tbe head to most advantage, wore diriinoud pins. Diamonds glittered from tho thrc�t, the corsage and the wrists, all of most briU-i.ont lustre. IMrs. Blorgan, who as Miss Tracy was a famed belle, retains much of tho beauty of her youth; her figure is �n'onderfully lino still, and her carriage erect and graceful. Mrs. G. H. Morgan was very handsome in a trained go^mi of cardinal velvet, with bands of black fur and gold. Mrs. Grew, tho bride's mother, was in green satin of rich shade. Mo.=t of the reception guests were in street costume and bonnets. Tho �n-edding breakfast at the Grew mansion on Beacon st. �was given immediately after the ceremony. The bride and groom tarried to receive the congratulations of their friends, luiliko the pair of tho week lieforo, who liurried away to catch tho 1 o'clock train for New York, and allowed themselves to be seen by nobody.

May be tho Noxt Grand Speotaolo Which Barnum and Bailey Will Produce att Oakland Garden. This IS the time of year �when outdoor amusement managers begin to prospect for tho coming spring and summer and already-much speculation is being indulged in as to what will bo offered next sea-son atOaklaud.^ Garden. The tremendous success at.tondins; the production of tho "Fall of Babylon" lasti summer has encouraged an unnsually largo crop of warm woathor o.xhibltiou sonemes, but until Barnum and Bailey decide their programmo the lessor lights must romaiu in a state of moro or loss indecision, for if the famous showmen should proaont "Rome Under Nero." it would centralize amusement going Ne^w England on Oakltmd Gwden, if tne suoces.s of this spectacle elsewhere can bo accepted as a criterion. As tho proceedings instituted by some reaidents on Erie St. against Oakland (harden havo thus far proved practically fruitless, there seems no obstacle in the way of a continuanoo of the spectacular productions. It will be remembered tbati these residents petitioned, through their counsel, Jlr. F. A. Perry, for an injunction restraining the oxhibitions at Oakland Garden, and that at the hearing, where Mr. Jlolvin O. Adams represented Barnum Hi Bailey, Judge Knowlton promptly refused to grant tho injunction without oven calling on the defendants to answer. .Me.Tjiwhilean investigation �was nendina before the Board of Aldermen, on the pati. tion of these same Erie st, residents for n revocation of tho licen.se granted Oakland Garden. Tho board, after numerous hearings given tho petitioners and their wit-" nesses, decided that Jlr. Perry's clients had not shown sullicient causa for interferenoa, and, gavo. them permission to withdraw' their petition. Complaint was also lodged with tho health donartmont ag.ainst tho garden, but after investigations tho health olficers reported everything in anprovetl-condition. A few days ago counsel tor tho petitioners moved to havo their hill in equity, which prays for a permanent injunction and damages, sot down tor au : early hearing, but Judge Charles Allen do-cided that inasmuch as the petitioners had seen fit to bring actions at common law, only recently, he would not hoar the in-�'unctioii suit, nor set for trial, but oontinua t to await the trial of tlio suits at common aw, remarking that the decision ot a jiu-y might decide the whole case, to his mind. As tlieso suits cannot come up in tho ordinary course of business luitil next October, Barnum & Btiiley can continue tho r spectacles to tho editication ot their thousands of patrons next summer before any bearing can bo had upon any part ot tlia Utisration. It is to be expected, therefore, with entire confidence, that Barnum & Bailey will continue their grand productions, and JIana.ger Frank Perloy, who ia rapidly arranging preliminary matters, say.s that everything necessary will be decided on at an oarly day.
