CHESHIRE HUNT BALL. BRILLIANT SCENE. The annual ball of the Cheshire Hunt took place on Wednesday night at the Brine Baths Hotel, Nantwich, and was signalled with the brilliancy and success that had marked it in the days before the South African War. There was a numerous and distinguished company of guests present, and the attendance exceeded that of any former assemblage of this social character that has been held in connection with the Hunt. Many of the leading families in the neigbbourhood of the town had house parties for the event, but there was one conspicuous absence, and that was the family of Colond Cotton-Jodrell, C.B., who were prevented from being present owing to a recent bereave- ment. All that skill and taste could accomplish was seen in the decoration of the hotel, a work which was carried out by the management and the gar- deners from Stapelew House, under the able supervision of Mrs. Kearsley. The music was provided by the White Vienhese Band. The pro- gramme included eleven waltzes, and dancing beq.n at nine and was continued until two. The majority of the gentlemen wore the Hunt colours of pink and green, and the contrast with the beautiful costumes of the ladies made the scene one of striking brilliancy. The secretarial duties were discharged by Mr. H. B. Newcombe, who accomplished his task in a very able manner. The following were among the guests:—The Earl and Countess of Crewe and party. including Lady Katharine Somerset, Lady Beauclerc, Lord and Lady Dungless, Miss Wyndham, Miss Ridgeway.
