Mrs. Zera Snow gave a delightful re
ception and dance on Friday evening, at
her home, on the northeast corner of
Twentieth and Johnson streets. The resi
dence, which Is one of the most artistic
in the city, gave unlimited opportunities
for decorations, and the hostess had
availed herself of these to the fullest ex
tent. The large highway, with its walls
and ceilings of polished walnut, was made
picturesque in the extreme, by the em
bellishment of graceful bunches of hem
lock placed at intervals about the apart
ment, depending from beautifully carved
woodwork on the side walls. The electro
liers were all entwined with cordons of
feathery evergreens, studded here and
there with bright mountain ash berries.
The tall mantel could not but command
admiration. It was framed with a garland:
of soft greens, gracefully depending from
the top and falling down to the floor on
either side, while here and there on the
mantel -were exquisite Venetian vases.
which held in place crimson carnations.
The fireplace below was filled In with an
exquisite assortment of begonias. At
either side of the broad stairway were
great clusters of waving palms and tall
fern trees, while here and there were
graceful umbrella plants. Suspended from
the middle of the hallway was an ef
fectively arranged bunch of mistletoe.
The drawing-room, with Its highly pol
ished floor and Its delicately tinted col
orings, only needed a few ornamentations
to make the scene complete. These were
contributed by boughs of evergreens
caught up at intervals onhe cornices and
hanging half way down the walls. The
dainty white mantel at the north end was
entwined with climbing woodland vines,
and brightened up by pretty clusters of
pink carnations, while the fireplace below
was filled In with delicate evergreens.
The dining-room was most attractive. In
the center was a round table ornamented
with sprays of white hyacinths arranged
in low cut-glass jars, while gracefully
sweeping over the cloth in careless pro
fusion were delicate traceries of smilax;
here and there about the table were ex
quisite pieces of silverware and pretty
little dishes filled with bon-bons. At one
end sat Mrs. Henry E. Jones, who pre
sided over the coffee urn, while opposite
was Mrs. T. B. Wilcox, who served tea.
The beauty of the room was further en
hanced by heavy garlands of evergreens
which were gracefully festooned from the
chandelier to the corners of the room. Tho
sideboards and mantel were decked with
hyacinths and maiden-hair fern entwined
with smilax. The supper was served from
a buffet at on end of the room, the
menu being simply delicious. In a cosy
nook in one corner of the hall, in a bow
er of beautiful evergreens were bowls
of white-wine punch and lemonade. The
large hallway upstairs was decked with
palms and filled with luxurious couches
and comfortable divans, which offered a
retreat for those who did not care to
join in the festivities of the dance. The
early portion of the evening was devoted
to a reception, during which the orchestra
in the small dining-room, discoursed de
lightful concert selections, and at 11
o'clock, dancing commenced, the band at
that time being stationed in the main
drawing-room. When the ball was at its
height, the scene was one of unusual
beauty, the plcturesqueness of the Inter
ior, the beautiful carvings of the wood
work, and exquisite decorations only
served to throw into bold relief the bril
liant jewels and the magnificent toilets
of the lovely women present, the whole
forming a beautiful kaleidoscopic picture
of exquisite color-blending. A very pretty
little Incident occurred about 11 o'clock,
when the formal engagement was an
nounced of Mr. J. Wesley Ladd and Miss
Dela Donelson. It happened at a moment
when they were standing together at the
foot of the broad stairway. They were
immediately surrounded by their friends,
and congratulations were poured forth on
all sides. Mr. Ladd looked very proud and
happy, and Miss Donelson accepted the
good wishes of her friends with charming
grace. The toilets of the ladies were ex

Public Installation, of Foresters.
Court Pacific Independent Order of For
esters, publicly installed their officers in
their hall, Marquam building, Tuesday
evening. A most delightful time was had
by several hundred friends of the or
ganization. A more than ordinary large
number of ladies graced the occasion by
their presence, and their beautiful cos
tumes, blended with the regalia of the
members of the court, presented a very
pleasing effect. The hall was handsomely
decorated with various colored electric
globes distributed in effective designs
throughout the hall. Flags of many na
tions gracefully draped the stage and al
tar In the center of the hall. A handsome
shield of the order formed a centerpiece
for the top of the stage. A fine musical

Canes for Deserving "Workmen.
Last Wednesday evening, as the grand
master workman, W. W. Brannln, from
Pendleton, Or., was installing the new
officers of upchurch lodge, No. 12G, A. O.
U. W., the past master, H. R. Howland,
and Past Recorder W. E. Harris, were
ordered approach the grand master's sta
tion for a reprimand, before a surprised
audience of ladies and gentlemen. When
the financier of the lodge approached
Mr. Harris, tho financier, Mr. M. J. Mal
ley, turned to the audience and preferred
a charge against Brother Harris that he
had for three years filled the position as
recorder of the lodge, and had constantly
up to this time done certain things in the
order that would not under circumstances
be permitted any longer without a proper
chastisement by the lodge, and, there
fore, he would mete out tho punishment
by presenting him with a silver-mounted
ebony cane. Mr. Harris was completely
overcome. However, he recovered him
self, and in a few well-chosen remarks
thanked the grand master and the mem
bers of the lodge for the gift of friend
ship. After this Foreman Ralph Feeney
now came forward and preferred a like
charge against Past Master Howland, and
presented him with a handsome emblem
atic gold badge, made to order for him,
by the members of the lodge. After the
ordeal was over. Master Howland, in a
polite way, thanked the brothers for their
remembrance of him In the duties as
master workman. The grand master in
stalled the officers of Upchurch lodge,
who are as follows: Past master, H. R.
Howland; master workman, T. E. Bar
ber; foreman, R. Feeney; overseer, W. C.

A Foresters' Ball.
One of the leading social events of the
season was the third annual ball given by

esters, Thursday night, in Foreman's

consisting of potted palms, bunting and
colored electric lamps. The handsome
shield of the order was prominently dis
played, adding a pleasing feature to the
decorations. Seventy-five couples opened
the ball with "The Foresters' March." It
was a full-dress affair. The ladles'
toilettes were very handsome. The gentle
men members of the court wore the
colors of the order, tastefully arranged as
boutonnlerres (red, white and blue ribbon,
intertwined with sprays of evergreen). A
buffet lunch was served in the annex to
the hall. Dancing was kept up until the
early morning hours.

no small degree to the effectiveness of the
embellishments. Card-playing commenced
about 9 o'clock, and at the conclusion of
the game prizes were awarded to Miss
Savier and Mr. Gordon, who were the suc
cessful contestants. During the eveulng,

Holiday Dance of Tuesday Club.
The Tuesday Club gave its holiday dance
on Tuesday evening last, at Parsons' hall,
which was a very delightful affair. The
decorations of the ballroom were simple
but effective. About the side walls there
were bunches of evergieens and holly,
while the bandstand was brightened up
with potted plants. The guests were
rather late In arriving, and It was nearly
10 o'clock before the dance commenced.
but from then on the entertainment was
characterized by unusual brilliancy.
Nearly every one in the ballroom partici
pated in the enpoyment of dancing. The
music attracted much favorable comment,
the time being excellent and the selec
tions fully "up-to-date." The ever popu
lar Deux-Temps was the reigning favor
ite, and occupied a very conspicuous place
on the long anc. well-arranged programme.
The supper was quite a feature of the
entertainment, and consisted of a most
palatable menu, which embraced many of
the delicacies that this season affords.
The patroness of the occasion was Mrs.
J. B. Montgomery. The toilets of the
ladles were extremely pretty, and alto
gether the ball was a very smart affair.

the first meeting since the holidays. It
was decided to meet every second Friday

party" In the spring, an entertainment for
the public, the proceeds of which would
be spent in printing the papers read In
the society during the year.
Company K, First Infantry, O. X". G.
Company K bas taken a new lease of
life. During the past year the members

cruiting, and as a result the company
is now filling up with a most desirable
membership. At its annual business
meeting on Tuesday evening, I. C. Hicks
and R. H. Moulton were elected treasurer
and secretary. Many of Portland's fore
most citizens look back to the time when
they were enrolled In the "ninety day" or
ganization, and watch with pride the
sturdy company that has succeeded them.
The members are making preparations
for a social and "smoker" in the near
future, and have a very original and
unique programme mapped out.
General Howard's Lecture.
The Young Men's Christian Association
presents the second attraction of its Star
lecture course next Tuesday evening at
the First Baptist church. The programme
for the evening promises to be a eery in
teresting one. The lecturer, Major-Gen-eral
O. O. Howard, is so respected and
admired by all Americans that any words
of introduction or commendation are ab
solutely superfluous. The lecture will be
preceded by a musical recital upon the
grand organ at the First Baptist church
by Professor Wilder, the organist, and
will be of especial Interest. It consists
first of an intermezzo from "Cavallerla
Rusticana," by Mascagnl, and second, of
"Memories of the War." his own compo
sition, which will be given at the request
of a large number of old soldiers. The
analysis of motives Is as follows:
(a) Sounds of the camp. Tramping of
feet. Murmur of voices. Military band,
fife and drum corps. "Dixie," "The Girl
I Left Behind Me."
(b) Men receive news of tho death of
their commander. Trouble, sorrow.
(c) Thoughts of the loved ones-at home.
"We Shall Meet, but We Shall Miss
(d) Funeral procession passes by. Bells
toll In the church tower. Taps at the
(e) Band playing as the procession
leaves the grave;
The chief event in social and musical
circles this week will be the production
of the "Messiah," composed 125 years ago
by Geo. Frederick Handel, and now pre
sented for the first time In Portland by
the Apollo Choral Society. The society,
composed of nearly 200 of the most ac
complished professional and amateur tal
ent in the city, has been holding rehearsals
twice a week for the last 10 weeks. Mr.
