' GHAT The gay winter is fast slipping : away and Lenten days are al- most upon us with Spring her I aided by an array of golden blos soms that defiantly peeped above i the chill of recent snows, and in this passing of the season there lingers much of its brightness, with pleasures tossed generous ly in the farewell. First amid these occasions of interest was the meeting of the Ladies' Whist Club with Mrs. John P. Mayo, in whose charming hospitality lies always the assurance of a delightful gathering, and whose entertainment Wednesday after noon was lovely in plan and in decorations, wherein red was the chosen color scheme artistically preserved throughout. Red car nations were arranged in great clusters that intensified their brilliancy, red candles were. crimson-shaded, and the souve nirs were the prettiest of crim son hearts with floral border. These served the two-fold pur pose of bonbonnieres and score cards for the merry round of whist games. At their conclu sion an elegant meat course with chocolate followed, and the after noon, which was one of excep tional charm, was enjoyed by Mrs. Ay res, Mrs. William H. Brooks, Mrs. T. B.

Effective decora tions of smilax and pink carna tions were used in both library and parlor, the delicate green of the smilax falling gracefully here and there, and making an admir able background for the flowers which rich coloring it brought into relief. Progressive whist was played, and the dainty cards designating place and partner were crimson and white hearts with ribbons to correspond. Lat er an elaborate and choice course supper was served. Those pres ent were Mr. and Mrs. Andrew A. Kmcannnon, Mr. and Mrs. John Mayo, Mr. and Mrs. How ard Teasdale. Mr. and Mrs. J.

The celebration of the anniver sary of Odd Fellowship this year will occur upon a grander scale mau mat or any preceding year and if the plans indicated below are carried out the celebration will be the largest which has ever occurred in this State. Union Lodge No. 35, of this city, generally takes the lead in this matter, the other lodges grace fully acquiescing in any plan and arrangements which may be suggested, and this rule will be followed this year. Union Lodge already has a plan for the celebration and it is assured that there will be no opposition to it and it will be carried to success. Columbus is the central point for the four lodges now in the county and instead of going to the country this year, as has been the custom m the past to celebrate the anniversary, it is proposed to have the lodges of the county and their friends to come to Columbus for the cele bration. It is proposed to ask the New Hope lodge, Butta hatchie lodge and the Artesia lodge to join Union lodge in car rying to success the plans of the celebration and through them invitations will be extended to the lodges at Macon, Gordo, West Point, Aberdeen, Reform, Millport and other lodges to join in the celebration. The train schedules are admirably arrang ed for the visitors to spend a day in this city and it is expected that for the occasion -there will be several hundred Odd Fellows in line for the grand march to the fair ground where the anni versary exercises will oe held. Here a barbecue and basket dinner will be served while pre ceding it the exercises will oc cur. These consist of the anni versary exercises, an interest ing program of music and the oration. Rev. T. W. Lewis, the beloved pastor of the Methodist church, has been invited to de live the address. Dr. Lewis is an Odd Fellow who has recently transferred his membership to Union Lodge and the members of the fraternity throughout this section have resolved to accept no ref tsal from him. It is not improbable that Grand Master Buckley, Grand Secretary Doty and other grand officers will be here for this occasion. The matter is in its incipien cy now but the ceiebration will be undertaken very soon by Union Lodge and will be put into the hands of competent commit tees and it will be carried to success. Dr. E. T. Riley, the Osteopath. Osteopathy is the new science of treating diseases by a scien tific manipulation, thereby using no drug or knife.
