The reception given at the Weyer
hauser mansion on Elm street
heights last evening be Mr. and Mrs.
John P. Wet er hauser and Mr. and
Mrs. S. S. Davis in honor of Rudolph
M. Weyerhauser and bride, of Clo
quet, Minn., was one of the most
largely attended social gatherings
mat bas ever erraced tbe tn-citits.
The spacious, long time home of the
Weyernausers was gorgeous in its
decorations of flowers and vines.
Chrysanthemums were the favored
flowers, but the display was by no
means limited to this variety.
Among the profusion and wealth of
lovely fragrance smilax was grace
fully interwoven and this predomi
nated in the formation of a lovely
tcreen, back of which an orches
tra was stationed whose strains
enlivened the scenes upon the entire
first floor. Ia the dining room
American beauties were chief
among the flowers - which enriched
the occasion, and an immense clus
ter of which on the center table of
tbe dining table was of most superb
effect. There were other similar
center pieces designed with ex
quisite taste and to which nature had
contributed such kindly cooperation.
Festoons of smilax and roses orna
mented each doorway, while the
halls, drawing room and library
as well as the dining room
contributed to the same gorgeous,
jet artistic combination of floral
beauty. Tbe appointments through
out tbe house were in keeping with
the extensive but uniformly tasty
design of the arrangements.
Refreshments were served in the
dining and library rooms, the cu
sine being a feature, while the third
floor was given over to dancing, an
orchestra being at the service of
those who availed themselves of this
mode of enjoyment.
The) Becjeletnz Party and Gaeete.
The receiving party consisted of
Messrs. and Mesdaraes S. S. Dsvis.
T. B. Davis, J. P. Weyerhauser and
Rudolph M. Weyerhauser, while Mr.
and Mrs. Frederick Weyerhauser and
Mrs. Lindeke. of St. Paul. were, also
present. Of the 800 invitations sent
out to tri-city friends the response
was general, and the occasion will
ever hold a place in the pleasant
memories 01 ail attending.
Mrs. James R. Kimball gave
a physiology party at her home on
Nineteenth street this afternoon,
which proved as thoroughly enjoya
ble as it was unique. It was given
for Mrs. Arthur Blunt, of Clinton,
and Miss Prentiss, of Bangor, Me.

railroad haa been in need of track
room in this city for some time. And
since the company, ao it ia aaid in

obliged to make other arrangements.

course, be retained and will be
known as the weat bound yards, or to

west will continue on to the yards

The Rock Island road has been

means of increasing its yards here,
and to that end haa arranged and re
