On Wednesday afternoon from 3 to 5
Mrs. E. E. Dixon was at home to a
number of her lady friends. The en
tertainment was perfect both in pleas
ure giving and in its appointments.
The brilliantly lighted house was
thronged with a bevy of handsome
women centering around the hostess,
with her customary grace and ease.
Her stately bearing, her patrician
beauty, her mind, so richly endowed,
and so carefully cultivated, and with
al her charming manner make Mrs.
Dixon a woman whose peers are few.
Flitting around like two gladsome
fairies, were the little daughters of the
home, Georgia and Erskine dressed in
pretty pink frocks. Misses Daniel,
Jackson, Green and Eyans formed a
quartette of invaluable assistants.
Mrs. Perry, too, with her sunny smile,
was adding much toward making all
things pleasant. The decorations were
in pink and white throughout the rooms
Pink candelabras and shades cast a soft
glow over the bright faces. In the
room where salads and ices were
served the large table was covered with
pink satin ribbon and pink and white
carnations. The ices were frozen into
American Beauty roses, and the sher
bets were doubly tempting in miniature
rose colored baskets. In adjoining
apartments hot drinks were poured by
fair hands to waiting guests. The
favors were dainty nose-gays of sweet
Frezias and ferns tied with pink ribbon.
The reception was a most complete
success in every particular. Among
those invited were: Mesdames Wil
banks, Young, Perry, Daniel, Brown,
J. B. Estes, C. C. Sanders, George,
Oliver, Brantley, Telford, Crawford,

One of the most brilliant and success
ful entertainments of the gay Queen
City’s winter season was the reception
tendered the “Altrurian Circle”
and about twenty of their friends by
Mrs. C. C. Sanders, on Thursday after
noon. From 3:30 until 6 the parlors
and halls of the elegantly appointed
home were thronged with callers
dressed in their richest silks and most
graceful plumes. Mrs. Sanders herself
a charming hostess, was assisted in re
ceiving by her beautiful daughter,
Miss Montine and her young lady
friends. The costumes worn on this
occasion were strikingly handsome.
Mrs. Sanders’ superb figure was never
seen to more advantage than in the
rich blackmoire antique gown with nile
green and jetternet as corsage decora
tions. Miss Sanders, of a picturesque
type of loveliness, wore brocade satin
and diamonds. Miss Lottie Smith wore
cream colored satin becoming to her
blonde style; Miss Armstrong, pink
silk and filmy lace; Miss Banks, pink
taffeta and chiffon; Miss Davis was
lovely in dress of deep rose with gilt
and white trimmings; Miss Dunlap
wore white organdy over white satin;
Miss Shewmake mauve velvet with
mousseleine; Miss Hosch pale rose satin,
white lace and pearls; Miss Comer black
chiffon and jet; Miss Gaston wore an
exquisite creation of blue organdy over
blue with purple Parma violets: Miss
Daniel lace over turquoise silk with
pink roses. From 7 to 10 the young
men called, the young ladies receiving.
Delicious refreshments were served
both afternoon and evening.

The arrest of Lucius L. Saunders in
Cincinnati, Ohio, Monday and his re
turn to Georgia to answer to the charge
of robbing the Southern Express Com
pany of $4,000 at Social Circle January
16th, 1897, created great surprise in
Gainesville, where he is well known.
At the time of the robbery Saunders
was a postal clerk on the Gainesville,
Jefferson & Southern railroad. Not
one of his friends ever connected his
name with the robbery, and his arrest
created consternation among them. He
has a brother, Mr. C. H. Saunders, now
living in Gainesville. Soon after the
robbery Saunders gave up his position
and left Georgia, and only his friends
kept up with his whereabouts.
Interest was revived in the case a
short time ago by the receipt of a mys
terious package of $3,700 by the South
ern Express Company at Atlanta, this
amount tallying exactly with the cash
taken, the remainder $300 being in
checks. Pinkerton detectives were in
Gainesville then working on the case,
and were fearful that that publication
might scare away their game, Saunders
then being in Cincinnati under the
shadow of a Pinkerton man. This only
served to put them to work harder
than ever to fasten a chain of evidence
around him, and since that day those
who knew the facts have been expect
ing his arrest.
Saunders confesses to having taken
the money, but says he did not send
the package of $3,700 to the express
company. He says after taking the
money from the car he hid it, and it
cannot now be found. Saunders’ trial
will occur February 21st at Monroe,
the crime having been committed in
Walton county* The penalty for sim
ple larceny is from one to four years.
The friends of the unfortunate young
man deeply sympathize with him in
Henry Hedley Bush waived a pre
liminary hearing before Judge Sims
Monday night, and in default of a bond
of $5,000 was ordered to jail. The at
torneys for Bush, Messrs. Johnson &
Dorsey, asked for fifteen days time in
which to make bond. Colonel Dean
and Mr. T. C. Parker consulted and’
allowed them ten days, but later de
cided to give them fifteen days. In
the event Bush does not make bond in
that time he will have to go to jail tn
await trial at the August term of courts
Thirty days ago Bush was arrested
at the instigation of Mr. B. C. Epper-
sop and Mr. T. C. Parker of Macon,
they alleging that he had misappro
priated money entrusted him for in
vestment in a certain mining operation,
only correct story of which was told in
detail in The Cracker at that time. Bush
was allowed fifteen days in which to
get the money from London, $5,00Gy
with which he was to reimburse the
Macon parties. At the expiration of
that time he asked for fifteen days
more, which was given him, and which
expired Monday. The money had not
arrived then and Mr. Parker instructed
his attorneys to proceed with the triai
of the case. Bush’s attorneys were not
ready for trial and waited a prelimi-
narj hearing, as above stated and with
above named result.
The case here rests. If Bush cannot,
make bond he will go to jail to await
trial. He insists that he will receive
money from England, and that he will
yet vindicate himself.
The recital that was to have been*
given at the Georgia Female Seminary
last Tuesday night by the pupils was
postponed on account of the extreme
cold, and will occur next Monday night.
A good crowd is expected to be present
and enjoy the excellent program to be
