A very brilliant affair was the entertainment and oyster supper given in compliment to the O C C's by Miss May Bruner at her beautiful home on Methvin street last Wednesday night.  Invitations were sent to the gentlemen, the cards bearing the name of the young lady the recipient was expected to accompany.

The time passed on golden wings in pleasant conversation and innocent gems.  One of the leading features was sweet music redered by some of the talented young ladies.

The refreshments were oysters served in all styles, with celery and salad accompaniments.

Miss Bruner is noted for her winning ways and capacity to entertain.  The following were in attendance:  Miss May Brawner and B W VanAllen; Miss Annie Turner and W C Page; Miss Fannie Rucker and B W Nicholson; Miss Effie Shaw and Aubrey Hargrove;  Miss Margie Kelly and Ras. Young; Miss Lucy Howard and Allen Oliver;  Miss Louise Lacy and Dr H M Lawrence; Miss Annie Lacy and S C Allen; Miss May Bruner and H G Kennard; Miss Laura Evans and Dush Shaw; Miss Anais Evans and C L Taylor; Miss Elise O'Bryan and Mr White; Miss Minnie Thompson and L F Elkins; Miss Lenore Young and G G Dubose; Mr and Mrs B F Lewis and Messrs.
