CHARMING JUNCTION Silver Weddiiig of Rev< Dr. and Mrs. Isaac Jewell. The reception given by Rev. and Mrs. laaac Jewell, (formerly pastor of the Covina M. E. Church) at the M. E. parsonage in Col ton on Wednesday evening, in celebration of their silver wedding, was one of the most brilliant social gatherings of'the year, the guests numbering over 300. Tibia cultured and brilliant company included many from Pasadena, Santa Ana, Covina and Ban Bernardino, where this beloved pastor and his charming wife have been during their pastorate in Southern California. The doctor is now the popular pastor of the Col ton M. E. Church. This home, like every parsonage graced by Dr. and Mrs. Jewell, breathed on this occasion an atmosphere of culture and refinement, and the decorations were harmonious with the occasion in all their bleedings. The front parlor was decorated with silvered pepper boughs, ivy leaves, bells and smilax, and the back parlor with pink and white sweet peas, smilax and silvered magnolia branches. The dining room was canopied with pink, white and buff tissue crepe paper, and ropes of smilax and asparagus fern were used most effectively over the table. In the reception ball poinsettias, red bells, geraniums and ivy made a wave of color, intimate friends, received in the front 1 parlors under an arch of ai'ver bells. The reception was brilliant in r all its details and during the evening several musical numbers were rendered, including two vocal solos by Mrs. J. M. Whitsel of this city, whose sympathetic voice captivated her hearers. She was accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Andrew McAllen. Among those who offered congratulations to the pastor and his wife were representatives from all his former charges. The young women of the J. O. C. class assisted in serving refreshments, and the ladies of the church helped to entertain the company. Many beautiful presents wore received by Dr. and Mrs. Jewell. Preceding the reception the Methodist ministers aad their wives of the district, some 36 guests in all were entertained at luncheon, aftet winch brilliant and witty toasts were indulged in for nearly two Lours. Dr. Jewell, who is acknowledged as one of the most brilliant orators <if the Southern California Conference, was pastor of the Covina M.E. Church for two years. Republicans Organize.
