The primary election held on
March 21, for the purpose of electing
a solicitor for the newv district passed
off quietly, with victory for Mr.
Cooper. There was not much inter

which all people do not enjoy.

A Charming Afternoon Reception.
l iss Elizaheii .and entertained
vry deli-ifully ()n Tiesdav after
nqioil. froi five t( seven o'clock, at
the residence ,f hier sister. Mrs. John
.. Kinard. in Calhoun street.
The parlrs and hall were extreme
ly effective in palms, ferns and bloom
ing plants. In every available space
b wls of fragrant violets and hya
cinths were placed. The mantles
were banked in jonquils, violets and
ismilax. Wild smilax garlanded the
balustrate in the I allway, and was al
so used on the walls of the parlors.
The entire house was illuminated
with the Foft glow of candle light,
which greatly enhanced its beauty.
The dining room was very pictures
que, being gaily decorated in Japa
nese colors. There was no particular
color scheme in this room, but quan
titles of brilliant red. yellow and pink
blossoms were massed together in an
artistic effect. The tables were cov
ered with pink crepe paper cloths.
Tall vases of jonquils. in:erspersed
with candelabra shaded in red and
g, Id, were charmingly used. Lan
t-rns, Japanese umbrellas and fans
were arrangee appropriately about
tc room. In one corner of the room
was suspended a huge Japanese um
brella, with lanterns hanging from
each spoke. and under this. tea was
charmingly served by Mrs. Waher H.
Hunt. assisted by Misses Lucy Mc
Caughrin and Elizabeth Burton.
From the doorways and windows
long streamers of red and yellow
c-epe paper were suspended, produc
ing a very pretty and unique effect.
Dainty refreshments were served, the
Japanese idea being carried out in
every detail, even to tying the sand
wiches with red and yellow paper rib
bon. Especially noticeable was the
kimona worn by Mrs. Hunt, as it was
made in Japan. Misses McCaughrin
and Burton wore kimonas of quaint
and pretty designs.
The guests were met at the door by
Misses Fannie Mae Carwile and Fan
nie McCaughrin. Assisting Miss
Land in receiving her guests were
Mesdames J. W. Humbert, James A.
Burton, W. H. Carwile, 0. B. Mayer,
and Misses Elizabeth Glenn and
A very amusing feature of the after
noon was the guest book, in which
each guest was asked to autograph,
in a manner as much like the people
of Japan as possible. Mrs. J. B. Hun
c-- had this in charge.
Among the invited guests were
Mesdames J. TP. Maves, 0. L. Schum
