Social and Personal
In Honor of Visitors.
In honor of her daughter, Mrs.

charming reception at her home

guests called during the hours, 4:30
to 6 o'clock.
Pink and white flowers and pink
shaded candles, like the decorations
used at the marriage of Mr. and

to the attractiveness of the rooms.
In the front drawing room, where
Mrs. W. M. Warterfleld received
with the guests of honor and Mrs.
Nailling, pink carnations were used
on the piano and mantel and the
candles burning on each side of the
vases gave a soft glow that added
much to the pretty picture made by
the receiving line and the guests as
they entered, several at a time. The
dining table was very lovely with its
cluny lace centerpiece and mats
with a great bunch of pink and
white peonies in the center and
pink candles on the corners. The
guests were served in the dining
room by Miss Ima Nailling and Miss
Agnes Coble. Mrs. Frank Aydelott
and Mrs. George Gibbs, Jr., poured
tea. Others assisting Mrs. Nailling
were Mrs. Lucile Andrews Bruton,
Mrs. J. L. Mosier and Mrs. W. R.
Andrews. '
Mrs. McVay was a lovely young
figure in her wedding gown of white
crepe meteor combined with bro
caded satin, the skirt made with a
long square train and the bodice of
princess lace trimmed with pearls.
She carried an armful of pink flow
ers. Mrs. Hudgins wore a pretty frock
of cream lace and net combined
made with a balero of embroidered
changeable blue taffeta.
Mrs. Warterfleld was gowned in
white charmeuse with an overdress
of black lace.
Mrs. Nailling wore a gown of
black lace over blue charmeuse.
The reception was the first of sev
eral parties to be given for Mrs.
McVay and Mrs. Hudgins to wel
come them back to their home town.

afternoon at her country home for

'For Potato Blight,
I don't think
be Beaten,"
"I have used Pyrox this season
against bugs and blight. It cer
tainly does the trick with the bugs,
and for blight, I don't think Pyrox
can be beaten."
Such is the experience of Mr. E.
R. Dissinger, Campbelltown, Pa.,
who ends his letter by saying "I
certainly would notdo without Pyrox
when growing potatoes."
No Fruit or potato grower can af
ford to overlook Pyrox. The fact
that it serves two purposes is not a
mere chance but the result of scien
tifically uniting powerful insecticides
and fungicides
thus making the one
application do the
work of two.

Dr. Luther Little.
The Review Club of Union City take
pleasure in announcing the fuel that
Dr. Luther Little, pastor of the First
Baptist Church, Jackson, Tenn., will
deliver in Union City at the First Chris
tian Church on the evening of June 4
his well known lecture, "The Eyes of
the' World." Dr. Little comes under
the auspices of the club.
Thereiwill be no charge for admission,
and his lecture will be addressed to our
local interests. Dr. Little comes to
Union City thru the recommendation
of Mrs. W. F. Barry. He has recently
entered the lecture field and his work
has become very popular. He is said
to have spoken recently to crowded
houses, many having failed to secure
The following are some of the indorse
ments of Dr. Little's work:
It was my pleasure to hear some of
the lectures of Dr. Luther Little this
season and I heard hundreds of people
express themselves, and I want to say
one or two things that I gathered from
this wonderful series of lectures. First
of all, I want to say that he made good
the title which he has well won, "the
little man eloquent." Without any
doubt, Dr. Little measured up to the
standard of popular and high-salaried
lecturers who have visited our city in
former years.
By a vote of the great audiences that
heard him throughout the season the
most popular lecture was "Abraham
Lincoln." Nothing could swerve him
from the call to preach the gospel, but
it is a universal decision among his
many friends in Jackson that if he
would turn his attention to the plat
form he would be counted among the
I speak from inside information and
unhesitatingly say that Dr. Little suc
ceeded in his lecture work in Jackson
this season. Respectfully,
Skale B. Johnson,
Jackson, Tenn.
No greater preacher and orator in the
West than Dr. Little. He is known all
over America as the "Little Man Elo
quent." To hear Little once is forever
to be a Littleite. Los Angeles Press.

Stoddard Lectures.
A new work entitled the Stoddard
Lectures has been published, a very
handsome and popular work in col

His death some years ago took one
of the greatest Americans from the
platform. His lectures were always
engaged far in advance, his audi
ences the very best people, filling
the houses always. The books will
no doubt be most popular library
works and much sought for.
