tinted invitation, having iu one cor
tier some daintily baud painted
flawer, and stating that Miss Mag
Dorion would be at home" from 2
to 5.30 Februaiy 4lh, the one
thought was a good time, for Miss
Mag is noted as a most charm

belie itself On entering the beau
tiful home, the work of an experi
enced mind and deft fingeis was ev
ident. The hall was draped in
bunting and rare artificials and the
reception room was likewise fitting
ly decorated for the occasion. When
the parlor was entered, the guests
were dazzled with the brilliancy of
the adornings, the twinkling lights
from candles set in golden sticks
aud candelabVa rt fleeting the varied
hues of the flowers nestling in love
ly,branches, as well as the bright
costumes of the guests. All tl.is
was the setting for the first study,

entered iuto with much zest. The
prizes, a hand painted bowl of roses,
the work of one of BolivarVfair ar
tists, and a floral valentine were
won by Miss Susie Black and Mrs.

next invited to take a trip to some
of the many islands of the world.
