Has Tulip Tree In Bloom.
C. M. Fricke brought into the
Journal office yesterday a number
of blossoms from a tulip tree
which grows on the lawn at his
home in the Second ward. The
tree is well filled with these
handsome flowers and makes a
most beautiful ornament to the
lawn and one that is highly
prized by Mr. Fricke, as there are
few of its kind in this county. The
blossoms resemble greatly the
old-fashioned single tulip and
are of a greenish yellow on the
outer petals, with a center of
orange color and

Mrs. Thomas Patterson gave a
delightful three-course luncheon

The guests were seated at the
large banquet table, which was
decorated with pink sweet peas.
Suspended from the chandelier
was a bell of sweet peas and pink
satin ribbons were carried lo the
four corners of the table. A
basket of sweet peas tied with a
tulle bow was the center decora
tion, and the table was lighted
with pink candles. The place
cards were brides. ...
Yesterdal afternoon the ladies
of St. Luke's C.uild held a most
successful apron sale and social
gathering at the home of Madame
R. R. Livingston, and from the

aprons they netted a neat sum
that will be used in the work of
the society. The articles offered
for sale were beautiful and em
braced every - possible design in
the apron line, and all who were
in attendance enjoyed themselves
very much in conversation and
looking over the goods offered
for sale. At a suitable hour very
delicious refreshments were
served, which aided greatly in
making the occasion one of the
greatest pleasure to everyone.

We received the following let
ter from Mr. Jos. Vodicka about
the saving of his little daughter
"My five-vear-old daughter was
suffering from a stomach and
bowel disease for quite a long
time. I ordered two bottles of
Triner's Elixir of Bitter Wine and
this saved my girl. Yours truly,
Jos. Vodicka, R. F. I. No. :
Swartz Creek, Mich." This shows
Ihe quick and good effect of Trin-
er's American Elixir of Hitter
Wine in some diseases of the
stomach and the bowels. It is a
very good combination" of bitter
herbs and excellent red wine,
which proved its own merit in
many cases and which we can
conscientiously recommend. It
will clean out and strengthen the
body. At drug stores. Jos Trin
