Pleasant Event yesterday Afternoon In Honor of Mrs. Wilson.

Mrs. J.E. Durhams trolley party given yesterday afternoon in honor of her sister, Mrs. L.M. Wilson of Cincinnati, was one of the pleasantest events of the kind yet given in Muncie. A large number of ladies had been invited and they assembled on the lawn at the Durham residence, on South Jefferson street, where they were presented to the guest of honor.

The caps were taken at the Kirby House and the trip was made over the entire system. Two cars were used and both were elaborately decorated; the first, or motor, being done in green, smilax, with pink and white roses; the trailer was decorated in white and pink and both presented a beautiful appearance.

When the park was reached on the Westside line an extended stop was made while Caterer Hummel served luncheon. Some time was spent in the park and then the ride over the rest of the system was made. At the conclusion of the party the ladies were taken to their homes.
