gave a very brilliant and beautiful recep
tion. A wealth of flowers, modish Easter
gowns and charming women made a whole
that was wonderfully attractive. Between
the hours of :< to 5, 150 or more guests
enjoyed the hospitalities of the afternoon.
The decorations were extremely artistic
roses, carnations and ferns being used
most lavishly. The stairway of the hall
was hidden by a network of gold of ophir
roses and behind this on tlie first landing
was placed a string orchestra. Ivy, smilax
and growing plants added to the bright
effect of flowers. Mrs. John F. Peck pre
sided in the hall over a delicious bowl of
punch, assisted by Misse3 Minnie Bryan
and Inez Clark.
Delicately tinted roses heldjin perforated
bamboo sticks reposed on the wall of the
drawing room|and everywhere flowers were
distributed to advantage. The arch divid
ing the front and back room was made
graceful by a display of smilax and pink
satin ribbon held to either side by large
bows. In the center a wide spreading bas
ket of ferns formed a pretty adjunct. In
one corner of the room a dainty arch of
pink roses and ribbons extended over a
small table holding a bowl of sherbet,
which was dispensed by Mrs. J. J, Aiken,
with Misses Millie Ciark and Hazel
Noonan as assistants. The room was pro
fusely decorated with pink roses and
smilax. The dining room was refreshing
and lovely with white and green The
buffet was a mass of white sweet peas and
roses. White carnations and ferns deco
rated tlie table and extending over the
whole were garlands of smilax reaching
from chandelier to the intersection of wall
and ceiling. Candelabra shaded with
green completed the charming arrange
ments. Dividing the room from the ball
and drawing room were Nile green and
while satin ribbons. The two hostesses
were assisted by Mines. W. H. Reed of
Kansas City, Wedemeyer. R. H. Howell,
H. M. Safe, the Misses Strong and Miss

Santa Ana, April B.—Gray Garrett
Southern was today found guilty of the
i murder of Mariano Cuero on the night of
| October 12, 1801. The trial has occupied
I the courts for the past ten days aud the
defendant has made a desperate fight
throngh able attorneys for his freedom,
but the evidence against him was too
plain. He murdered Cuero iv cold blood,
simply because the old Mexican or half
1 ndian dared to cross a line that he had
drawn in the dust between them.
Cuero stepped across the line, pre
sumably to give Southern a drink,
when a bullet from a forty-five cal
bre Colt's pistol killed him, Theevidenee
in the case was very convincing, as there
was one eyewitness to the crime and others
who were on the scene of trouble soon
alter the shot had been fired, so that their
evidence bore out that of the eyewitness.
I Judge Towner couclutled his charge to tho
jury just before noon today. At 8:30 they
filed into the courtroom with a verdict of
j guilty of murder in the second degree.
! Southern formerly lived in Tazewell and
I Cumberland Gap, Term., where he bore a
j bad reputation, having many times been
arrested for violating the law. lie has
previously been charged with killing a
man, but was not convicted.
