There was joy at Jardine Monday and the Christmas holiday was celebrated with a feeling of exuberance which might well be felt by the residents of the camp and those in charge of the operation being carried on there. It is not so long ago but that the time is well remembered by even recent a:- rivals in this country that there was no Jardine. Bear gulch was there, and the gulch was all there was to it. It is not much more than a year ago that there was only a few prospect holes where now exist the splendidly developed mines called the Revenue, the Slwash, the Legal Tender and many others. A little over a twelvemonth ago a few shacks occupied the places where now stand substantial stores of stone and lumber. Where the prospec tor crushed the grudging granite in his mortar and washed the gold in sparse quantities from out the rock, the stamp mills are ever grinding their grist of wealth and the busy hum of buzzing belts is heard anon. IQtwas indeed a fitting time for celebration, and the af fair which occurred at Jardine Mond day has had no equal in the social an nals of Park county and It is doubtful if the state of Montana has ever wit nessed a banquet of more dazzling bril liancy or greater magnitude. It has been under the management of Harry Bush that these marvelous improve ments have been made and these gen tlemen resolved to give Jardine a Christmas which would linger in the minds of those why. attended for years. Accordingly, arrangements were made for a grand banquet in the Revenue mill on Christmas day. Mrs. Bush was given charge of the arrangements and the success which attended the affair is a splendid commentary upon the ability of Mrs. Bush as an entertainer and a. fact showing that Harry Bush is not the only person in Bear gulch who makes no mistakes in laying ot plans. The scene of the banquet was the ma chine shop of the Revenue mill, the room being vacant a:, yet on account of the machinery not having arrived. The room was decorated in a manner that rendered it a perfect bower of loveliness. The roof was a solid bank of evergreens, dotted here and there with electric lights of various hues. Bunting of national colors swung in graceful folds around the room and the most exquisite of cut flowers lent their delightful perfume and beapty to the scene. The tables were laid for 100 persons and were profusely deco rated with cut flowers and ferns, and presented a most artistic appearance. At 6 o'clock the banquet began, and it was 10 o'clock before the 700 guests who had assembled to enjoy the hospi tality of Mr. and Mrs. Bush had re galed themselves at the festive board. The menu abounded in delicacies and every luxury in the line of edibles that could be found in the market graced the tables. As a reminder of early days in Montana a buffalo had been our chased and the juicy steaks and tender, roasts of the monarch of the plains in days gone by contributed a share of the feast. Elk and deer, fowl of every de- scription and products of the salt seas and of the clear water of the Yellow stone were ther in generous abundance. The best of everything was none too good for the guests at the banquet, and it is safe to say that no greater enjoyment was ever had by any crowd than was furnished Christmas day to At those cosy little after. noon tee Partiee thls winter you will of course use that best of package teae Japan Tea the assemblage at Jardine. After the banquet was over the rooms were clear ed and the guests formed for the grand march. An orchestra of 11 pieces fur nished the music for the promenade, and as the first strains of the march swelled forth the entire machinery of the Revenue was set in gentle motion. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Bush led the march and to the dropping of the stamps the hosts of guests were con ducted through every floor of the vast structure, wandering about the various rooms until the starting point was again reached, when a quadrille was formed. The remainder of the evening was most pleasantly spent and the breaking up of the assembly marked the close of the greatest social event ever held in Montana. It was a day to be long remembered and looked back upon in pleasant retrospect throughout the lives of those who attended. Too much credit cannot be given Mrs. Bush for the able manner in which she con ducted the arrangements and carried out every plan, even to the smallest de tail. Nothing was lacking to make the banquet all that it was intended to be, and a remarkable foresight was exer cised by Mrs. Bush in superintending the affair. Those in attendance came from various points on the Upper Yel lowstone, and in fact from all over Montana. The men employed in the properties of Mr. Bush were the guests of honor and were shown every at tention throughout the progress of the banquet, as were, indeed all those pres ent. It was a great day for Jardine. In Bozeman. Bozeman, Dec. 30.-Tuesday evening a very pretty Christmas wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Maxey, when Miss Jeannette Maxey was united in marriage to Ed mund Burke McCormick. The cere mony was performed at 7:30 o'clock by Rev. Frank B. Lewis. rector of St. James Episcopal church, assisted by Dr. James Reid, president of the agri cultural college, the members of the families of the contracting parties and a few intimate friends only being pres ent. The bride was given away by her father, Daniel Maxey, while Miss Max ey and John Maxey acted as maid of honor and best man respectively. The bride was attired in a very handsome gown of pink faille francaise, trimmed with white lace and carried a 'handsome bouquet of white roses. The maid of honor, Miss, Maxey, was dressed in a very dainty gown of pale laveder, trimmed with lace and chiffon, while the groom and groomsman wore the conventional black dress suits. Mrs. Mc Cormick is the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Maxey and was born and brought up in Montana. residing during the greater portion of her life in the Gallatin valley.

The newly married couple have fitted up a home on Bozeman street and will go to housekeeping the first of the year. After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Luce from 8 until 11, during which time about 150 ladies and gentlemen extended their congratu lations and best wishes for a long and happy life to Mr. and Mrs. McCormick. The house was very prettily decorated throughout for the occasion. Wreaths of evergreen and holly were tastefully arranged in the hallway, while the re ception room was decorated entirely with mistletoe suspended from the chandeliers and doorways. The sitting room was adorned with evergreens and plants and the dining room was beautiful with wreaths of holly and mistletoe. The guests were received in the reception room by Mr. and Mrs. McCormick, assisted by Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Luce, Miss Maxey. Mr. Maxey and Mrs. Kyle. Shrub was served in the sitting room by Mesdames Doane, Hoffman. Tudor and Baker, while Mes dames Pier, Cooner, Davidson. Living ston, May and Lamme helped to re ceive the guests and attend to their wants in the dining room. The refresh ments were handed around by Mrs. Elmer Ray. Misses Gage, Maud Martin, Blanch Mackenzie and Ferris. The re ception was a very pleasant affair and the fun and laughter, together with the decorations of mistletoe and holly, made it more in the nature of a Christ mas gathering than a wedding recep tion. The bride and groom were the recipients of a number of useful and valuable presents. A very pleasant reception was ten dered to Mr. and Mrs. John Clifton at their home on Babcock street to a num ber of their friends Saturday evening. The occasion was the 15th anniversary of the marriage of the host and hostess, who chose this pleasant way of cele brating their "crystal wedding." More than 150 ladies and gentlemen tendered their congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Clinton during the re ception, which lasted from 7 until 11 o'clock. The host and hostess were as sisted in the reception of their guests by Mesdames T. M. Pierce. Hart, Ed sail, Fisher and other friends. The de licious edibles were served in two pretty little refreshment rooms. Mrs. E. H.
