Mrs. Well's Party.
Mrs. J. B. Well was hostess yester
day at a very charming bridge-tea, a
hundred guests being entertained. She
was assisted in receiving by Mr& Nor
man E. Pinney of RoSeville, 111. Bridge
was played from half past two to four
o'clock when a short musical program
was given. Mrs. Pinney who has a
clear soprano voice of wide range,
sung "Winds in the Trees," by Thom
as "I Know Not Why," by Bingham
"At Nightfall," by Metcalfe, and "CariB
sama" from "The Red Feather." Miss
Katherine Younker played the piano
accompaniments. MISB Beulah Weil,
accompanied on the piano by MISB Ida
Ruth Well, sang, "Just a Wearin' for
You," by Carrie Jacobs Bond, "A Bowl
of Roses," by Robert Domingsby
Clark, and "The Perfect Day," by Can
rle Jacobs Bond. M1S3 Weil has a
voice of remarkable beauty and of a
quality which one would not expect
in so young a singer.
Following the musical program, re
freshments were served in the dining
room which was decorated in many
yellow and white chrysanthemums.
The table had for a centerpiece a
large Japanese basket filled with
chrysanthemums and huge bow of
yellow chiffon on the handle. Many
American beauty roses were used in
the parlor, and in the living room and
hall long stemmej chrysanthemums in
baskets and tall vases were used. As
sisting in the parlors were Mrs. Alois

gave a delightful pupils recital on
Tuesday evening at the home of Mrs.
Schouten, 1112 Exchange street. A
company of music loving people,'In

the program. A special feature of the
recital was a solo by Mrs. Schouten's
sister, Mrs. C. E. IjOVett, of Lineville,
Iowa, who sang "Forgotten," by Cow
els. She has a contralto voice of
much the same quality as Mrs. Schou
ten's and gave a beautiful Interpreta
tion of "Forgotten." The pupils who
had* part in the recital sang with un

upon their teacher and her methods
of teaching. Those who had part on

Miss Pearl Uhler, Miss Cornelia
Nicholson, Miss Alice Hawkins. Miss
