On Tuesday evening, Dec, 17th
occurred the most highly pleasing
nocial event of the season, the re
ception given by Mrs. Florence 13.
Crofford at her home in the south
end of town, which was given in
honor of Mrs. G. 13. Acton's de
parture from Tucumcari.
About forty guests were present,
and they were entertained in a
manner that will not soon be for
gotten by them.
The house was beautiful, the
decorative scheme being floral.
Yellow and pink chrysanthemums
were used in abundance, and flow
ers were carried by the hostess and
the young ladies assisted her to
receive the guests.
The floral idea was employed
even to the carrying out of a very
enjoyable musical program. Mr.
Brymer, one of Tucumcari' sfavor
ite soloist, rendered "The Sweetest
Flower that Blows." W. A. Gam
ble sang Heine's little classic
"Thou Art Like Unto a Lovely
Flower." Mrs. Thomas Sherwood
charmingly rendered "Springtime,"
and Miss Brewer gave a reading,
A pretty contest, "Floral Wed
ding," enlivened the evening, and
Mr. C. H. Chenault proved his
knowledge of horticulture by car
rying off the prize.
Mrs. Acton was presented
with the guest prize, a Jap
anese vase, by Mr. Brymer in
behalf of the hostess, who in pre
senting the prize made a very
appropriate speech, wishing that
her life might be spent in the Land
of Flowers, and in which he voiced
the regret of the many friends of
this charming lady at her leaving.
Miss Murphy presided in her
usual charming and graceful man
ner over the punch bowl.
Mrs. Crofford was assisted in re
ceiving her guests by Misses Haves
Murphy, Brewer, and Baker, and
so beautiful was this "Rosebud
garden of girls" that the two min
isters present insisted that a wed
ding was in order.
Everyone had a delightful time.
The young folks always have a
good time at Mrs. Croffords, but
this occasion was far out ol the
ordinary, and Mrs. Crofford was
declared to be an amiable hostess.
The invited guests were: Mr. and
Mrs: Muirhead, Mr. and Mrs.
Street, Mrs. Elkins, Mr. and Mrs.
G. B, Acton, Mr. and Mrs. Barnes,
Mr. and Mrs. Chenault, Mr. and

The Epworlh League Reception
On last Friday evening the Blues
of the Epworth League of the
Methodist Church entertained the
Golds in a very enjoyable manner.
About sixty attended and all ex
pressed themselves as delighted
with the program and banquet.
After a game of "Greeting" which
broke the ice very effectively,
several interesting numbers were
given. Among them was a rendi
tion of "Higher Culture in Dixie,"
by Miss Brewer which delighted
her hearers, and numerous read
ings by Sallie Crofford and Maple
Naefus that were loudly applaud
ed. Rev. DuI3ose and Rev. Wil
son entertained the audience in
their usual happy manner and the
president of the League Mr. H. H.
McElroy followed with a talk that
was enjoyed and appreciated.
After this feast of reason the
guests adjourned to the parsonage
to partake of a more substantial
feast, which under the manipula
tion of Mesdames Acton, Hurley,
Wilson and DeOliviera was all
that an epicure could desire. Tur
key sandwiches disappeared like ,
dew before the sun and wit
and laughter reigned supreme.
The Golds feel indebted to the
Blues for one of the most enjoy
able social evenings spent in Tu
cumcari, and to the credit of its
leading spirits it should be stated
that the League is decidedly the
most successful organization in
