A HUGE Jack-dMantern and six
yellow candles were the sole
means of Illumination used at
tin lovely Hallowe'en dinner at which
Mr. and Mrs. Charles O. Miller pre
sided last evening. Originality was the
keynote of the entire affair, from the
unique decorations to the dinner serv
ice itself. Alone; the panels of the
truest room of the Marion hotel,
where the delightful function was
keld, great black cats, with flaming
bows of orange ribbon around their
necks, glared through the outer 'Shad
ows at the cheery circle of light that
marked the table. A prettier effect
in a. centerpiece could not have been
achieved if the goddess of Plenty had
emptied her traditional horn upon
the table. White and purple grapes,
rosy cheeked apples and mellow, yel
low pears were heaped In artistic dis
order about the JackrO'-lantern in
the center, while chestnuts, bursting
temptingly out of their sticky burrs.
Invited inquisitive finders to touch
them. If they dared. Place' cards, in
perfect keeping with the individual
ity of the occasion, and pretty favors
marking the places of the guests,
completed the setting.
Circling the festive board were Mr.
nd Mra. Armin Steiner, Mr. and Mrs.
A. J. Rahn, Mr. and Mrs. Walter
Kirk, W. B. Mason of Portland, and
the gracious host and hostess.
An elaborate centerpiece of pale'
gold, and deep orange blossoms, was
one of the prettiest features of the
beautifully planned dinner at which
Mrs. E. V. McMechan presided at the
Marlon last evening. Clever little fav
ors in which the traditional Hallow
e'en motifs were adhered to, added
to the spirit of the occasion, while
dainty cards, upon which were perch
ed tiny black cats, marked the places
el the guests. Circling the handsome
ly appointed table were Miss Wanda
Newman, of London, guest of honor
at the pretty affair, Mrs. W. S. Gra
' ben of Seattle, O. F. Murphy of Port
land, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Mesch
of Portland, Jim Alexander, Mr. and
Mrs. Dan Fry Jr., Mr. anl Mrs.
Thomas Roberts and Mr. and Mrs.
J, V. McMechan.
Reverend H. N. Aldrlch and family
mn honor guests at a beautifully
conducted reception, given Thursday
bjt the congregation of the Leslie
Jiethodlut church. The parlor and
church auditorium had been artistic
ally decorated with a wealth of au
tumn leaves and chrysanthemums.
.Reverend Aldrich was presented with
m handsome auto robe and Mrs. Aid
rich was the recipient of a purse of
liver. Before adjourning to the par

Honoring Mrs. W. L. McOeorge,
who is leaving in the near future for
Kqseburg where she will reside, Mra

ally Saturday afternoon for a number
of former Roaeburg residents. After
a pleasant afternoon of sewing, the
hostess, assisted by her daughter-in-law,
Mra Leland Brown, served a
delicious lunch. The guest list includ
ed Mrs. MeGeorge, Mrs. II. I. Snook,

Undoubtedly the biggest event of
the season was the formal dance at
the Illahee Country club last eve
ning. Under the master hand of C. B.
Clancey, the decorative scheme was
unrivalled in originality and artlHtlc
development. Bowers of flaming au
tumn leaves formed the background
tor the decorations, which were car
ried out to perfection, from the most
noticeable features to the smallest
detail. Wise old owls blinked solemn
ly at the merrymakers; witches
astride flimsy brooms sailed dizsily
across glided moons as though In a
fcurry to get away from the cheerful
atmosphere and be about their busi
ness of "sweeping the cob webs out
of the sky." Black cats, with a total
disregard for the superstltutlons of
mere mortals, fairly jumped at un
suspecting guests from all sorts of
out of the way corners, and waved
their bushy talis In angry defiance at
their unsuccessful efforts to simulate'
the flesh and blood species of feline.
Musio for the occasion was furn
ished by an orchestra of picked mu
sicians, under the able leadership of
. Mrs. Lilian McElroy Hunt. Mra Wil
liam H. Maulthouse, saxaphonlst of
l'ortland, charmed the guests with
Iter clever use of her Instrument.
