Three courses were served, each time changing part ners and the favors were pretty little Easter Rtinnies.

O The ladies of the Episeoapl Church are very enthusiastic over the bazaar that will be held Thursday all day in tho Dempsey building on Main street, one door south of Wielers Jewelry store.

There will be seven booths and occh booth will represent a day in the week, and articles will be sold accordingly. Monday being wash day, and Tuesday ironing-day, the things the housewife needs the most at this time, she will find to her satis faction at these booths. The Wednes day booth as sewing and mending day; Thursday will be reception day, and things to wear will be sold hero, also tea will be served; Friday is cleaning day, and at this booth mostly aprons, dusters, etc., may be pur chased; Saturday as baking day will find many good things to eat; and Sunday candies and swecta will be for sale. The ladies plan to have everything just as reasonable as possible so as to reach all purses, and have passed the Lenten season working hard to make it an assurred success. There is a groat discussion going on in New York in regard to the 'Two-dish leagues'' that are being formed in France, tho memb r pledging themselves to have but two dishes, or rather two courses, at the dinners of the future.

Wilson Sibert of St. Louis was in the Capo Tuesday coming down to attend the fui.criii of W. II. Miller. -O- The St. Agncss and Christ Church Guilds met Tuesday afternoon at the residiiiee of Mrs. Robt.

Miss Mar garet Wilson is one of the patronesses. - O - Tho Oliver-Williams wedding which v. ill take place cilncsilay cvct.ing at 0.30 will be itno of the largest events society has witnessed in some time. The Presbyterian Church where tho ceremony will be performed, has been magnificently decorated by a St. Louis concern, over $.100 worth of flowers being used to iral.e this attractive place of worship a verita ble fairyland. It is rumored that the trousseau of this accomplished ami attractive young bride to be, is one of the most complete and elaborate outfits, and one that would cause the envy of Imanv a voting lailv. not unite as fortunate. Miss Williams is very re.-, rveil in her tastes, and though like most all girls loves pretty things, her wardrobe is exquisite, in its simplicity. -O- A formal dinner party was given at the home of Senator and Mrs. I!. H. Oliver Tuesday evening in honor of the bridal party of the Oliver-Williams wedding. Il wits without a doubt one of the most exquisite and elaborate affairs of the year. The spacious dining and living rooms were opened into one large room and the table extended through both, the renter piece of which was a magnificent design of (American Beauties and smilax. At each end of tho table was a large silver candela bra tho lights from which, shining through tho led shades sent a soft reflection, that made the table a most entrancing picture. Covers were laid for twenty-four, and promptly at 7:30 thi' young folks took their places. The artistic deeoiatii lis of the rooms made a most fitting background for the dainty gowns worn by the charm ing bride-elect ami her maid., and as one gentleman expie.-sed hiimeli "they all looked too pretty for words" was no doubt the sentiments of the other young men present. Afti r the dinner Miss Williams and Mr. Oliver presented the bridal party with tokens of their friendship that were magnificent to say the least. Tho Maid-of-Ilonor was given a large silver picture frame, and the maids each recieved a pair of gold hat pins, and real lace wedding caps. Tho grooms gift to his best men was a handsome gold watch, ami to the ushers solid gold pocket knives studd ed with diamonds. Dancing was then enjoyed tho remainder of the evening.

After the cold and rain of Satur day it was readily appreciated, judg ing from the number of handsomely gowned women and elegantly tailored men, who were food on the streets Sunday afternoon, and the many autos carrying dainty burdens at tired in the most up-to-date fashious with bonnets laden with flower of the brightest hue, giving an ideal expression of a Spring day. The various churches were crowded with worshippers, paying homage, to tho Risen Christ, and the services and music will well be remembered by those who attended. Tho services of St, Vincent's Church were beauti ful and impressive. Father MeW'il liams said Mass assisted by Father O'Brien and Father Coupal, and the responses wire made by the Col lege Boys Choir. Th' Church Choir rendered a magnificent programme, Mi s Frieda Rieck playin the violin obligato, which was highly enjoyed, as most everyone knows of Miss Rieck's ability as a viloinist. The soloists were Mrs. Stout, Mrs. Leyhe, Misses Genevieve Ilooh, Schwcpker, Albert. Harness and Joe Vaelh. I'ath ir Levan's sermon on 1 1. e meaning of I'a-ter and the message it coiixcvs to the Christian Wi;:d, was sullioietit to eonvice tho most hardened of si:. mis that in the Death and llesiir l'i:tioti of the Saviour, liis mo-t tirriMe sacrifice on the cro-s wis H i ant for everyone, an I im r.tattir how far they have strand away from the Fold, the b'i-cn Chri.-t is evi r ready to welcome tin if return. Tie sen iei s at Chief's Episco pal Cured were also very impressive. The church was beautifully decorated with stailax and ferns, ami tho altar was banked high with lilies and potted plant-, making a tilling di-play on this memorable day. The choir vtsted in whi'e, sang tl" programme, and Miss Riugold, who has an ox eelli tit Voice sang "God Shall Wipe Away All Tears." l!i, Clopton's Sermon en "The Deathless Christ" left an impression of peace and eoni foit to those who were fortunate in being present at this Easter service. The large class which was confirmed at the Lutheran Church on Palm Sunday received Communion for the lirtt time on Easter Sunday at the 1(1 o'clock services, making it a very opportune time in which to celebrate this service. The morning sermon "The Easter Message" was delivered in Getmali, ami the evening sermon "The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, A Reality" was in Englisd. Rev. Wilder is a most eloquent speaker, and his sermons are always a source of great interest to the Congregation. Monday's services were conducted by the Rev. A.
