In regard to the services last Sun flay, we had a good day. There was 225 Methodist out, and about 50 visitors at the morning service. There were 160 in Sunday School and close to the 300 mark at the night services. I want to thank the visitors for their presence. Next Sunday is MENS day, come men, get in the game. I hope the other 75 of our membership can come next Sunday. I tell you that is go ing some when all but 75 are in worship at the same time. Don't forget to watch the papers for the ads for the Play.

Then we all know that the Johnston's are hustlers and are right up to the minute. Entertained The beautiful home of Mrs. Thom as Proctor was .thrown open to her many friends Tuesday afternoon be tween the hours of three and six o'clock and a more enjoyable and more cordial reception was never given in our little city. The artistic home needed no lav- ish decorations to enhance its at tractiveness and with the bouse aglow from the soft shades of the many chandelier8 and assisted in entertaining by pretty young ladies and charming matrons, it was a scene long to be remembered. Miss Hagermeister of Green Bay, Wis., and Miss Lucille Proctor pre sided at the inviting punch bowl and these young ladies made a most striking picture, each gowned in deli cate shades of pink and each one lovely in her extreme opposite type of beauty. The dining room was a veritable bower of loveliness and was lavish- ly decorated in ferns and red car- nations- The center piece for the handsome table was a large basket Mrs. Jamie Hanly and Mrs. Carrie Hawkins, Mildred Buell, Cleo Pa'tton i anu Keoecca Megown, wno present - e ' each guest with a scarlet carna tion. ima. rrocior wno is always so cordial and gracious in her manner f wc, Cvh, more so as noess 01 me ! afternoon. one was Hss stpn pn tenanting by Mesdames Walter Williamson, nerman Levy, l nomas "1 . : Br.u'.wnrp, D R.
