SAVE YOUR COUPONS THEY ARE WORTH 2C ON THE DOLLAR FOR GOODS AS EXHIBITED AT DAIORE'S. —The latest scientific achieve ment, one of the most marvelous uses to which electricity has been put iu stage craft, is shown in the third act of Chas. H. Yale's "The Evil Eye," playing at the Veazey Opera House Sunday, February 10th. A great feature of the production is the "Butterfly Ballet" in which a group of young girls clothed in tiny electric lamps, go through the mazes of a dance, each one of them a cluster of electric lights,. The electrical arrangements provided to produce the ballet are very interest ing. A huge storage battery sup plies the currents and cables run from it to the rigging above. Here the cables are connected with wires which hang down the center of the stage to the floor, each being con cealed by a garland of roses. A small wire netting to which are attached the little electric lamps, covers each dancer, and the connec tion is made with the current by the girls, whose hands are protect ed, grasping the wires concealed in the strings of flowers. The effect is exquisite. Although there is said to be a certain amount of danger there has never been any accident in the ballet. The inven tion is the work of P. C. Armstrong, who personally manipulates the varying effects at every perfor mance. Louis F. Waibel, Ph.

A SURPRISE PARTY.

Early yesterday morning hurried conversations among our young le and oonstant demand upon of our local telephone ex changes aroused suspicion thst "something" wss being planned. Later all the mystery was explain ed: Miss Crawford leaves today for her home and the young people were to meet at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Russell and have a " sur - prise" euchre party in her honor. The idea was carried out most successfully and only time was given the hostess to arrange tables who had met at the home o: iss Marie Patout came pouring in : Misses Marian and Janie Daspit, Misses Alphonsine and Anseile Decuir, Miss Marie Patout, Miss Ria Schwing, Miss Mamie An dronica (of New Orleans,) Miss L.

If a , woman is not beautiful upon her \ wedding day all the art of Ma i dames Whats-their-names will be ; of 110 avail thereafter. There is, i however, a degree of prettiness, of j ^ eau ty- The wedding \\ ednesday : a f tei ^® on a * which Miss Ella Eliza Shaw of Galvestion, Texas, became M rs - Oscar George Dupre ^e\\ Ibeiia, La., was a dear, dainty wedding. The rooms of the 1 bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rob " ert Wallace Shaw, 1924 Sealy ave nue, where the solemn ceremony was enacted, showed the touch of an artistic eye and a capable hand. Two long, wide pink satin ribbons stretched through the two drawing rooms from the dining room on the north to an altar at the south end of the room. Over this altar was a canopy of ferns and smilax—not heavy, just enough. Hovering over the spot where the young couple were mated was a dove drawing with slender bands of pink ribbon two pink hearts— the pink, la France roses. The altar steps were covered with white rugs, and 011 either side were jardi niers of delicate ferns. On a pier glass mantel of the room were ferns and baskets of white hyacinths, uot too closely placed. In the other room were baskets aud roses of camélia japouicas, a Louisiana favorite flower. Their pink blos soms and waxy leaves were the sub ject of much attention. Over the folding doors were the letters "S. D." in ferns and pink roses. Long stemmed carnations in long stem ed vases were upon the supper table in the dining room—but every room had its quota of natural flow ers and holly. The bride was very proud of this holly whieli came 011 her wedding morn. Mr. Shaw upon the violin and Mr. Herrle upon the piano gave the small audiencç of near aud dear friends and relatives intima tion of the approach of the wedding party by playing those old familiar notes which always stir the memory the bridal chorus from Lohengren. First came tiny Norman Hurd Ricker, nephew of the bride, dress ed in a whitej satin suit, the coat a Tuxedo, the vest pink satin, stock ings white and slippers of patent leather, together with little Miss Edith Levy, daughter of Mr. L. W. Levy, in white organdie over pink silk, white stockings and slippers. These little couriers bore a white satiu pillow, which was placed in front of the altar. Then came the flower girls, Lucile Misirot, daughter of Mr. Simeon Mistrot, and cousin of the groom, aud Nina Gates, also a cousin of the groo m . Both were dressed in white organdie over white silk,and around their necks were pink ribbons', each holding a basket of flowers. The maid of honor, Miss Ada Courts, wore a pink taffeta under dress, with overdress of white silk mull, applique trimmings. She carried pink carnations and la France roses, made into a shèwer bouquet with ferns. Then came the bride, beautiful in her wedding gown of white satin and with white lace overdress, ruch ings of Liberty silk and bolero of real lace. The gown was entrain, high in the neck and with elbow sleeves. A tulle veil covered her from the spray of diamonds in her brown heir to the hem of her gown. She carried a shower bouquet of lillies of the valley, which reached lillies of the valley, which reached the bottom of her skirt. She walk ed in upon the arm of her father. The priest, Rev, J. R. Carter, rector of Grace Episcopal church, preceded the groom and the best man in the order of entrance. The best man was Mr. Homer Dupre, brother of the groom, also of New Iberia. As a rule the groom is given bnt a passing thought—a sort of necessary but unimportant person at a wedding,but this groom was good to look upon—clean cut in countenance, a sharp, dark eye, erect bearing, he gave the impres sion of a man capable of rising above tbe average, a man of au thority, of endless resources within himself. And when I heard that he had all ready for his bride a fine home, handsomely furnished, and that he was one of the leading young men of New Iberia, I was proud of my prognostication. During the ceremony "Call Me Thine Own" was softly played. Kisses and congratulations were followed by refreshments. Among the relatives present were Mr. Norbert Blanchet, cousin, Mr. Homer Dupre, brother, and Mrs. Gates, sister of the groom, of New Iberia, with Mrs. Gates' little daughter, Nina; Dr. Homer Dupuy of New Orleans, Mrs. Fred A. Smith of Alvin, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Bald win of Houston, Mrs. William Huntington and Miss Lilian Hunt ington of Elyrea, Ohio, Dr. and Mrs. J. R. Ricker, Mr. N. H. Rick er and Charles Ricker of Cleveland, Texas, and Miss Algie Angel of Houston. In the cutting of the cake Miss Louise Blanchet got the ring, Miss Algie Angell of Houston the thim ble, and Mr. J. F. Grant the dime. Each one of the little attendants found a silver heart in the cake. The presents received were rich and elegant. The mother of the groom sent "To my children, Ella and Oscar," a magnificent chest of silver, eight dozen pieces, and there were many other gifts equally ele gant. Many telegrams were receiv ed from friends in New Iberia and New Orleans. Mr. and Mrs. Dupre left at 8 o'clock. After a stop at New Iberia, they will go to New Orleans for the carnival.— Galveston Renew. CUD OP THANKS. The sincere thanks of America Fire Co.
