The rooms had been transtormed into bowere of greenery, ferns, palras, and grasses, covering the walls, brightened with colored lights and Japanese fans and umbrellas. The piano seeined one bed of roses, and the alcove with its beautiful statue of the " Pompeian Girl" was partially screened by what seemed a shower of white and fragrant flowers.
