Mrs. J.T. Logan and Miss Foster gave one of the most beautiful affairs of the season yesterday afternoon. The occasion was a pre-lenten six-course luncheon, complimentary to Mrs. Eggleston. Yellow jonquils in the center of each table wafted a fragrant breath of spring, and yellow-shaded candles and chandeliers lent a beautiful glow. Auction bridge was played after the luncheon.

Mr. and Mrs. George Lord have left the city to attend the automobile show in Omaha.

Mrs. C.C. Tarbox has returned from an extended trip in the east.
