-o (All Items of social Interest will be gladly noted In these columns if sent to Mrs. George C. Ball, Nineteenth otreet, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, South High lands. Telephone 988.) Thanksgiving Day was observed and honored In Birmingham to an unusual degree. The churches holding services were well attended and tastefully dec orated with ruddy autumn leaves, chry santhemums and luscious fruits. The of ferings of money and provisions by the congregations were worthy of the warm hearts that prompted the gifts. The different charities of our city were made richer by the generosity of citizens and school children, and many a barren life was made gladder because of this Chris tian holiday. There were many family reunions, many gatherings of familiar friends, but no large social function. The day was celebrated quietly and happily In one way or another by the entire com munity. Thanksgiving Day of-1895 has been numbered among the countless days that make up the records of time and it has left us a happier and better people, because of the sublime lessons it taught and the divine mission it fulfilled. * * » The decorations at St. Mary's-on-the Higldands yesterday were especially beautiful. The handsome brass lectern and the marble baptismal font were ar tistically adorned with autumn lcavt s— that held all the tints of a'southern sun set—and rich dark chrysanthemums. The credence table was decorated with au tumn leaves also, and groat bunches of purple grapes. The altar vases were filled with chrysanthemums and the ehotr stalls were decorated with the same blossoms. The music was excel lent and Rev. Mr. Fitzrdmons preached an eloquent and appropriate sermon. Mrs. Joseph R. Smith. Jr., will enter tain a few friends today at 1:30 o'clock at a luncheon In honor of Mrs. Joseph Shields of Knoxville, Tenn. * ♦ * Mr. George Walton Rebe of Augusta, Ga., a bright and promising young news paper man, has sent some valuable relics to the exposition which belong to his family. He is a grandson of the late Madame Hebert, one of the most famous ■women of her day, and during the most brilliant period of her career a resident of Mobile. An exchange, in referring to these mementoes of other days, writes thus of this celebrated woman, who was counted as an Alabamian, although she was born in Georgia, and belonged to the old and distinguished family of that state, the Waltons: "One of these relics is a miniature of his great-great-grandfather, John Wal ton, one of the signers of the declaration of independence. The others are two bracelets of massive gold, richly traced and set with miniatures. One of hTs grandmother, Mme. Levert, the fascinat ing and famous southern beauty, and the other of her daughter, Mr. Hebe’s mother. "The picture of Mme. Levert was taken when she was a girl of 16, and shows a fascinating though not particularly beautiful face—full of delicate refine ment and Intellect. She was one of the great women of her day, and the remain ing old beaux of that time will delight in telling you of her social triumphs, her re ception abroad, her honors from artists, musicians and men of letters. She had that great charm In women—a soft, well • modulated voice. She was conversant " with literature and art, a fine linguist, a ready wit, a creature of complex and brilliant moods. She went out and trav eled over the world at a time when for eign travel seemed a marvelous achieve ment, and she returned to her home so ciety to delight her friends with the won derful stories of her experiences. Indeed, among all the belles and beauties of her time, this woman stands out as the most Interesting and distinctive figure. She was broad-minded, clever and original at a time when such things were considered most forward on the part of a gentle lady. It was whispered behind the prim turkey tail fans of southern ladles that she even went so far as to entertain ac tors and actresses In Paris, which asser tion shocked the people so much thut they went at once to hear about 11 all when she returned. "Mr. Rebe, it is raid, has much of his grandmother's magnetism nnd clever ness, and if he takes seriously to litera ture fine things may be expected from him.” * * • Mrs. John C. Henley has Issued (he following cards to many of her young lady friends: “Mrs. John C. Henley, luncheon, Saturday. November 30, 2 o'clock. R. S. V. P.” • • • The souvenir edition of the Gunters ville Democrat has been received. It Is a credit not only to the progressive and enterprising editor and proprietor of the paper, Mr. E. O.

It also contains pic tures of prominent citizens of Alabama and much profitable and Interesting reading matter. Mr. Neeley is to be con gratulated upon his enterprise and suc cess. Mr. W. J. Boles and Mr. C. H. Colvin gave a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner yesterday at the Florence hotel to a few friends. Tha menu was a delightful and elaborate one, served In ten courses.

M. Bates at their home on Foun tain Heights. They were royally enter tained In genuine Thanksgiving style. EARLY CARS VERY POPULAR. The early morning cars that were re cently put on by the Birmingham Rail way and Electric company have been found to be a great convenience by the citizens of Avondale and the Highlands. Especially during the travel to the At lanta exposition have these early cars been found to be a great boon. The sub urbanites can catch the early trains with out having to walk or pay hack hire. These owl cars give evidence that Bir rnlnffbom !• --- «..•«!.» nannfna \ THINGS DRAMATIC. Next week "The Fatal Card,” one of the greatest of the Frohman successes— one of the most potable of the pretentious productions of the season In New York last year—will be seen at O’Brien’s. "The Fatal Card” had Its first produc tion in this country at Palmer’s theater . last season. So great was the success of the play that at the expiration of the time allotted to it at Palmer's, it was by special arrangement transferred to the big stage of the Academy of Music, where It continued to play to enormous business through the wane of the season and far into the heat of the summer months. It will be given here in its en tirety. Scenic embellishments and me chanical effects, marvelous in their ac complishments, are as much a feature as the strength of the company of play ers. The story of “The Fatal C'flrd" opens in a mining camp at the foot of the Roc-key mountains. Gerald Austen rescues George Forrester from a vigi lance committee. Forrester tears a card in two and gives half to Austen as a memento. Years later the men meet In London, but do not recognize each other. Forrester is called Marrable, and while apparently respectable, is leader of a band of bond thieves. Gerald is in love with his daughter Margaret. Marrable's confederate accidentally kills Gerald’s father with a walking stick which Gerald left in his father's office after a quarrel with the old man. This causes the son to be suspected, but Margaret overhears a conversation between her father and Dixon and tells Gerald, who conceals himself in Marrable's laboratory, where bond numbers are changed, and there he hears the story, but is discovered, bound |o the stair case and left to die by means, of an Infernal machine with a time fuse. Gerald asks Marrable to take a tribute out of his pocket to give to Margaret, as a keepsake, and in doing so. the half ofr li card falls to the floor. Marrable recog nizes it, explanations follow and th° vil lain's life is sacrificed by an explosion of the machine which he attempts to throw out of the window. Messrs. Chambers and Stephenson have given us a play that Is filled with material that interests an audience. The dramatic portions are deftly sandwiched with the humorous, and the sensational episodes awake in terest. The comedy scenes are very strong—that of the bathing scene and the upsetting of the canoe being verv ludicrous. The play possesses so much that appeals to all classes of theater patrons that it cannot fail to be popular. They All Praise It. Rev. C. S. Owens, pastor M. E. church, Greenville, Ga., says: "I take very great pleasure In recommending to the public King’s Royal Germetuer. I have been using it at times for three years for dys pepsia and nervousness with the most gratifying results. I think it is due this wonderful medicine to say that I have known a numtor of ministers and others who have taken It, and so far as T now remember they all speak of Us curative and strengthening effects with unstinted praise. No one who buys it and uses as directed for the troubles for which it is recommended will exchange it for any other medicine.” New package, large bottles, 108 doses, $1.

The prisoner was returned to jail with out bail to await the action of the grand jury. THE BUSINESS MAN’S LUNCH. Hard Work and Indigestion go Hand in Hand. Concentrated thought, continued in, robs the stomach of necessary blood, and this is also true of hard physical labor. When a five horse-power engine is made to do ten horse power work something is going to break. Very often the liard worjted man coming from the field or the office will "bolt "liis food in a few min utes which will take hours to digest. Then too, many foods are about as useful in the stomach as a keg of*liails would be in a fire under a boiler. The ill-used stomach refuses to do its work without the proper stimulus which it gets from the blood and nerves. The nerves are weak and "ready to break,” because they do not get the nourishment they require from the blood, finally the ill-used brain is morbidly wide awake when the overworked man at tempts to find rest in bed. The application of common sense in the treatment of the stomach and the whole system brings to the busy man the full en joyment of life and healthy digestion when he takes Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets to relieve a bilious stomach or after a too hearty meal, and Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery to purify, enrich and vitalize the blood. The “Pellets” are tiny sugar-coated pills made of highly concen trated vegetable ingredients which relieve the stomach of all offending matters easily and thoroughly. They need only be taken for a short time to cure the biliousness, constipation and slothfulness, or torpor, of the liver; then the “ Medical Discovery ” should be taken in teaspoonful doses to in crease the blood and enrich it. It has a peculiar effect upon the lining membranes of the stomach and bowels, toning up aud strengthening them for all time. The whole system feels the effect of the pure blood coursing through the body and the nerves are vitalized and strengthened, not deadened, or put to sleep, as the so-called celery compounds and nerve mixtures do —but refreshed and fed on the food they need for health. If you suffer from indi gestion, dyspepsia, nervousness, and any of the ills which come from impure blood and disordered stomach, you can cure yourself with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery which can be obtained at any drug store in the country.
