congratulated the contracting parties in
an eloquent and appropriate manner, and

and happiness. Following the marriage a
sumptuous repast was served at the resi
dence of the bride's parents, which was
decorated in an artistic manner. Stream
ers of Ivy hung from the four corners of
the spacious rooms; festoons of smllax
ornamented the chandeliers; bouquets of
rare flowers were in every conceivable
nook and corner; in fact, the whole house
.vas a veritable floral palace. The bride,
who has been for many years a teacher in
the public schools, is the accomplished and
handsome daughter of Hon. William Don
lon, ex-councilman from the East Side.
She looked lovely in a white velours silk
dress, with pearl passementerie and vo
lants of Duchesse lace. A spray of orange
blossoms looping her veil and a rich bou
quet of roses added a charm to the toilet.
Miss Carrie Donlon, sister of the bride,
acting as bridesmaid, looked charming and
bewitching in a gown of white crepe
de chine, with rich real point lace. The
groom, who is a. prominent society man of
the East Side, and one of the foremost
contractors of this city, appeared in the
usual conventional black. Mr. White
acted as best man. The large table in the
drawing-room was loaded down with beau
tiful and handsome presents, presented by
the friends of the bride and groom. Their
home will be at 202 Eugene street on their
return from their wedding trip to the

Mrs. Flanders' Reception.
Mrs. George H. Flanders gave a recep
tion on New Year's eve which served to
introduce formally to society her second
daughter, Miss Carrie. In honor of the
occasion the spacious residence was given
over to the decorators, and the result was
a veritable bower of beauty. The long
hallway was hung with graceful festoons
of evergreens which depended from the
side walls and were caught up by the chan
deliers in the center. The music-room was
decked with bunches of holly and sprays
of feathery hemlock. About the sides of
the drawing-room were evergreens and
tiny Christmas trees, while the band was
almost hidden by a profusion of woodland
greens. In the library were clusters of
mountain ash, while the walls were hung
with long traceries of holly. The mantel
served to display the floral offerings to the
debutante. One bouquet was entirely of
fragrant double Parma violets, another
was of violets and white hyacinths, a third
was of deep red poinzettas," a fourth was
of dainty rosebuds, while a fifth was of
delicately with carnations, lilies of the
valley and sweet violets. The dining-room
was entirely decorated with holly, ar
ranged in long streamers depending from
the tops of buffets, mantels and mirrors,
while at each window was a wreath of
evergreens. All the different apartments
were canvased and given over to the
dancers, and nearly all the guests par
ticipated in the well-arranged programme
of some 16 numbers. Dainty refreshments
and iced pineapple cup added their share
to the evening's enjoyment. The hostess
appeared in a handsome toilet of black
crepe, relieved with white lace. Miss

MuMicale at tUe Y. M. C. A.
New Year's night there was assembled
in the, gymnasium of the Y. M. C. A.
one1 otrthe largest and most appreciative
audiences that ever met within its walls,
the occasion being an entertainment given
by the Young People's Society of the First
Congregational church, tendered to the
members and friends of the association.
Long before the appointed hour the
rooms were filled to overflowing, and hun
dreds were unable to gain admittance.
A choice musical and literary programme
held the attention and interest of the
audience until a late hour, every num
ber receiving a hearty encore. Among
those entitled to special mention is Miss
Jennie A. George, who opened the enter
tainment with a piano solo, a gavotte in
F-sharp minor, by John Orth. Her se
lections were enthusiastically received.
Miss Helen M. Prentiss sang "The Crown
of Life" in her usual pleasing manner.
Miss May Percy rendered "In the Chim
ney Corner" with telling- effect, while Miss
Edna O. Oliver rendered two of the good
old songs, "Far Away" and "I Remember,
I Remember," accompanying herself on
the auto-harp. Miss Annie Ditchburn re
cited with her usual grace, and Mr. Frank
Branch Riley delighted the audience with
a scene from "Pickwick Papers." The
Elite quartet, consisting of Professor N.
E. Skinner, Edward Drake. Professor J.
Adrian Epping and M. L. Bowman, was
down on tne programme for one selection,
but several encores were insisted on. Mr.
Arthur P. Johnson sang "The Chalet
Horn," with cornet obligato, by F. A.
Seiberling, accompanied on the piano by
Miss McKercher. The selection of the
Venetian Mandolin Club, composed of M.
H. Schmeer, F. C. Warren, C. A. Warren
and A. Johnstone, were hugely enjoyed,
as well as those of Fred Morgan, Frank
Morgan and J. A. Morse. Miss Frances
Jones accompanied Miss Prentiss and
Miss Percy on the piano. Rev. Dr. George
R, Wallace made a few appropriate New
Year's remarks, and the entertainment
was concluded by Mr. M. M. Meyers,
secretary of the Y. M. -C. A., who, in a
few well-chosen words, extended a cor
dial invitation to all to tarry awhile and
become acquainted one with the other.
It was a happy ending to a very happy
day at the Y. M. C. A.
The Misses Failing's Afternoon, Tea.
The Misses Falling gave an afternoon
tea on New Year's day between the hours
of 4 and 7, which was a very charming af
fair. The house was adorned with ever
greens and holiday decorations arranged
with artistic taste.
In the dinlng-rocm was a Ions table
nmntu with hunches of chrysanthemums
i and brilliant with holly berries. A soft
light fell from tapers with golden shades,
which added much beauty to the scene.
This table was presided over by Mrs.
Cabell: Mrs. Elliott, of Vancouver bar--?
molv "f. TIT 'ir JnJ nv -rc. -1i!vJ
In the library a table gaily embellished
with chrysanthemums attracted much fa
vorable comment. At either end sat Miss
Schuyler and Miss Lucy Failing, "while
at the side were Miss Constance Mont
gomery and Miss Sallie Lewis, who served
palatable lemonade and seasonable esg
nogg. Soft music was furnished during the
entire afternoon by the Spanish Students,
who were stationed in the front drawing
A Dellsrlitful Musicnlc.
A charming musldale was given Mon
day evening before"; a number of guests
at the residence ofMr. Henry L. Pittock.
The participants were several pupils of
Professor Motschmann and Professor
Stebinger. The programme was made up
of seven numbers, in the selection of
which wide variety had been secured.
The first number was a trio, Beethoven's
"Third Symphony," rendered with excel
lent effect by Miss Kate Pittock and Miss
Louise Pittock at the piano, and Professor
Stebinger on the violin. A violin solo,
selection from "La Sonnambula," by
Master Gustave Pfunder, followed. His
performance was very creditable, and
elicited much approbation, from the au
ditors. Next was a vocal solo, the aria,
"Ah! fors' e lin," from "La Traviata,"
by Miss Kate Pittock, accompanied by
Professor Motschmann at the piano.
The song was very charmingly rendered
and was received with applause. She re
sponded with the cadenza from "La
Fille du Regiment." Number four on the
programme was a violin solo by Master
Leon Schuhl. It gave evidence of talent
and of careful practice by the little fellow.
A piano solo, Moszkowskl's "Valse Brlll
iante," was rendered with much spirit
by Miss Louise Pittock, and received an
encore. Miss PIttock's performance
showed that she possesses both correct
muolcal perception and technical skill,
and that she has taken full advantage of
the excellent Instruction of her tutors.
A violin duet by Professor Stebinger and
Master Pfunder followed. The accom
paniment on the piano was by Professor
Motschmann. The number was rendered
harmoniously, accurately and with ex
pression, and was heartily applauded.
Last came a vocal solo, "Dance of Joy,"
followed by the ballad, "Answer." by
Miss Kate Pittock, with piano and violin
accompaniment by Professors Motsch
mann and Stebinger. Miss Pittock's
voice, naturally sweet and melodious,
showed wiJe range and genuine capabil
ity for artistic expression, and, besides, it
betrayed a degree of thorough cultiva
tion. The programme, as a whole, was
most satisfactorily rendered, and was fol
lowed with close attention by the listen
ers. The general expression was that it
reflected much credit upon instructors"
and pupils. After a time spent in conver
sation, refreshments were served, and
about 11 o'clock the party broke up.

be played with living checkers or figures.

marked out on the floor and each klock
numbered. Mr. Fields played with the

ing and lasted for some time, and in the
meantime the progress and moves made
were watched by the audience from the
gallery above the players. After a hot
contest Mr. Fields succeeded in defeating
