In Compliment to Mrs. Quiy;Iey
and Mrs. Owen of Mobile.
An occasion of unusual charm
and beauty of detail was the
card party at which Mrs. T. G.
Owen entertained on Wednesday
afternoon in compliment to Mrs.
Quijrley and Mr Owen of Mobile.
Everywhere the most exquisite
Mowers were used to complete a
rich lloral setting, varied in mo
tif and choice of blossoms. In
the drawing room, there were
great clusters of calla lilies, while
a mass of yellow rosebuds made
tfective mantel decorations; the
dining I'oo n adjoining had a
wealth of field daisies and calla
lilies, with a more vivid note of
color in garlands of crimson
rambler roses adorning the punch
table. Richmond roses and ferns
were combined with perfect re
sult in the library. Whist was
played and brought pretty souve
nirs to Mrs. T. W. Hardy and
Mis. Ilulsey, the former receiv
ing a hat pin of brilliants set in
platinum, the latter a silver call
bell. To the honorees of the af
ternoon, tortoise shell braid pins
with tracery of silver and rhin.?-
st one ornaments, were presented

Mrs. Vaughan's Reception

Mips Ulie Eicholtz, who is to
be one of the attractive June
brides, was the guest of honor at
a lovely reception given by Mrs.
Ljdyard O. Vaughan on the af
ternoon of Thursday. The event
was of prettiest arrangement.
On a picturesque vine-covered
veranda, punch was served to a
large company of guests by Miss
Winfred Whitfield, Miss Mamie
Sue Sherrod, Miss Rhett, Miss
Artie Peyton and Miss Mary Et
ta Beard. Within doors a grace
ful plan of decoration was ob
served with a lavish harvesting
of summer flow., rs. The hall in
troduced quail' l ies of deerryel
low nasturtiu. the parlor had
shaded sweet peas in tones of
pink, and from the chandelier, a
lloral wedding bell, admirable in
design and color harmony', was
suspended. The dining room
was ( specially artistic in white
and green, with lights, green
shaded, with white lilies and
hydrangeas and tall brass bas
kets filled with white sweet peas
bordering the cen-er table decor
ation. A shower of white hy
drangeas and white ribbons fell
in canopy-like effect from chan
delier to the mound of hydran
geas forming the centerpiece.
In the receiving line were: Mrs.
Vaughan, Miss Eicholtz, Miss
Sue Foote who will be maid of
honor. Miss Jarmon of Kentucky
and Miss Sallie Willie Walker

Tha Stephen O. L Chapter
Compl'm.nts Mrs. Clay-Clopton.
The visit of Mrs- Clay:Clopton
has been of happiest character,
and countless courtesies have
been extended her. The Stephen
D. Lee Chapter, U. D. C, wish
ing to compliment her, had in
view a reception which, by Mrs.
Clopton's request and be
cause of the stress of
her recent engagements, was
abandoned. In its stead a grati
fying and pleasing attention was
substituted, the officers of the
Chapter visiting Mrs. Clopton
Friday afternoon and presenting
her with a great armful of cala
lilies, tied with Confederate col
ors. Mrs. J. M. Morgan on be
half of the Chapter, grace
fully presented the
flowers with appropriate and
beautiful reference to the distin
guished guest. Afterward there
was a pilgrimage to the grave of
Gen. S. D. Lee.
The Alumnae Associat.-on Honors
Miss Orr. Presentation of Silver Service.
Probably no other feature of
the commencement of 1910, will
be so impressive and memorable
as the exercises that marked the
presentation of the si.ver service
to Miss Pauline V. Orr of the
college faculty yesterday after
noon. The gift was made by
the college alumnae to commem
orate the twenty-fifth year of
Miss Orr's splendid work for the
young womanhood of the state,
and the occason was significant
and of rare pleasure. Miss Ruth
Stockett of Birmingham presi
dent of the alumnae association,
in announcing the object of the
meeting, made a charming little
address, voicing the love and ap
preciation of the alumnae for
one whose influence has been so
far-reaching, potent and uplift
ing. . She next introduced ' Mrs.1
William Baldwin,' class of 1904,
who presented the gift for the
association. A delighcful speak
er always, Mrs. Baldwin was at
her best in expressing forcefully
and beautifully the deep feeling
to which this token testifies.
That the signal honor thus shown
Miss Orr is entirely merited was
evidenced by her touching and
eloquent response. The silver
service, a Colonial reproduction
of seven pieces bears on the cof
fee urn, this transcription from
"Beowulf" "Woman of courage
and high soul for thyself thou
hast brought by thy work that
thy honor shall live forever.
Receive this beaker and continue
ever in niesseuness. upon me
silver kettle is the following in
to the lover of human letters.'
the alumnae of the college of the
women of Mississippi have pre
sented this gift to the inspiration
and helper of the women of her
own state."
Mrs. Clem Clar Clopton: Belle and Wit.
It has been many a day since
Columbus has welcomed so inter
esting a visitor as Mrs. Clem
Clay Clopton of Alabama, about
whom romance and history have
lingered, giving a full flow of
reminiscences of great scenes and
events to bring to us in 'these
piping times of peace." A bril
liant woman, friend of famous
men, heroine of thrilling hap-
penings, the Dene ana wit oi ner
day, Mrs. Clopton stands as the
gracious representative of a type
that has vanished, or almost van
ished, save as we know and cher
ish it in the pages of history.
As you meet her, you seem to feel
the impre33 of a glowing past.
As you talk to her, you recognize
the gaiety and sparkle of her
celebrated wit, the fine, undaunt

extremes of fortune, and never

Mrs. C. B. Whitfield and Miss
Whitfield Entertain. . -
Tuesday was distinguished by
the delightful reception given by
Mrs. C. B. Whitfield and Miss
Winifred Whitfield, whose hos
pitality brightened the social
legacy of the week. Beautiful
decorations prevailed throughout,
with sweet peas especially favor
ed, the drawing room having a
charming color scheme of laven
der, the dining room in white
and pink with candelabra capped
by pink shades, and a finished
blending of the chosen colors in all
the egant table appointments. In
the hall, the gold and scarlet of
nasturtiums were displayed
against a background of palms.
The broad porch, where Miss
Nellie Whitfield and Miss Annie
Lee Senter, served frappe, was
tropical with growing plants and
vines gracefully festooned. Re
ceiving with Mrs. Whitfield and
Miss Whitfield were: Mrs. Don
elly of Houston, Tex., and Mrs.
W. E. Dakin. Mrs. Harvey
Jones, Mrs. Gessner TV Smith,
Miss Vi Newby and Miss Nellie
Kittrell assisted in the diHitig
room. Mrs. Ledyard Vaughan,
welcoming the guests as they en
tered had with her the old 4 black
"mammy" of the Whitfield
household, a quaint figure with
her wide expanse of white apron,
her curtesy deep, as if she had
stepped back . from the "Old
South" to greet another genera
tion. The afternoon in its en
