Consderable surprise was occasioned
in the city this week by the news of
the marriage of Miss Vera Stevenson,
daughter of F. N. Stevenson, to Her
man Stein, a well known Cincinnati
merchant.. The marriage took place
in Covington Kentucky, and the news
was broken to Columbus relatives and
friends through the Omaha newspapers.
Members of th- familv stated Wednes
day evening that they knew nothing
of the marriage more than the story
published in the papers. The many
friends of the bride will wish her the
best that life can afford in her new
home. The young Jcoupe will make
their home in Cincinnati.
In last week's issue, we unintention
ally omitted mention of the Hallowe'
en entertainment given by the ladies
1 Guild at the Orpheus Hall. The de
corations here were very eleborate
Jack o' lanterns alternating ith palms
were used in place of the usual foot
lights. They decorated the balustrade
surroundidg the gallery, they lighted
two gaily decorated fortune tellers
tents, which were presided over by
local talent, who "dipped into the
future as far as human eye could see"
and started a few partrons by their
unexpected display of ability in that
direction. A cake walk was a fea
ture of the evening entertainment.
Three impartial judges awarded the
prize, a cake, to M. D. Karr and his
partner. Late in the evening the
coffee booth presided over by Mrs.
George Thomas and Mrs. Homer
Robinson was the most popular corner
of the hall. Dancing continued until
midnight. The entertainment was
such a decided success socially and
financially that the Ladies' Guild hope
to make it an annual affair.
One of the most unique opening
this city has seen, occured last Fri
day afternoon when the Misses Rusche
threw open the "Ye Gift Shop" to the
public The first impression as the
visitor stepped into the room made them
exclaim, "Oh how beatuiful". The
wall were hung with- picture of every
size in water colors and pastel work,
fancy work, tooled leather and Hand
painted cards filled the cabinets,
indeed as some one said you could find
every thing there frorr a magnificient
picture to as small hand painted sach

carnations were used effectively in the
decoration and each guest was present
ed with one of the beauites. The
young ladies are certainly to be con
gratulated on their splendid work.

One of the most delightful of the
numerous parties, given recently, was
the one o'clock luncheon given Tues
day, by Mrs. E. H. Chambers and
Mrs. C. D. Evans, at the home of the
former. The affair was in honor of
Mrs. Williams, of Omaha, who is the
guest of Mrs. Chambers. The decora
tions were pink and white carnations
and southern palms. The new winter
sun parlor, just compel ted. is a most
attractive spot. Daintily draped white
curtains, subdue the glare of the sum;
hanging baskets, climbing vines, and
birds, suggested an ideal summer day.

mony was performed at the Catholic
Cathedral, and was witnessed only by
Miss Marguerite Mahon. an aunt of the
bride, and Mr. Thomas McTaggart, a
brother. The bride wore her travel
ing gown of blue, with which she wore
a white beaver hat. Her only ornament
was a beautiful lavileer, a gift of the
groom. Miss McTaggart is well
known in this city both in social and
in business circles. For two years

The judge is a married man and Mrs.
