Mrs. Albert F. Wray, of South Harrison street, was the hostess this afternoon for the members of the Catherine Merrill Circle at the regular meeting. Mrs. Minner Fuller was to have been the hostess but the place was changed for convenience.
Friday Afternoon, March 31, 1196[sic]
CATHERINE MERRILL CIRCLE
Entertained This Afternoon By Mrs. Albert F. Wray.
Two papers composed the afternoon's program, both of which concerned modern day writers and their works. Mrs. Stanley E. Bowman read the first, which was an explanation of the book, "Treasures of the Humble," whose author was the subject of the second paper -- Maurice Maeterlinck. The second paper, which in reality was a biography, was read by Mrs. Isaac Carter. Both papers were expressive of diligent work on the part of the compositors and were extremely interesting.
Following the program a social hour was enjoyed by the ladies present.

ing Report of His Death He
Came Home to "Prove" It.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
Since leaving home a few weeks ago, he has been with the Riggs Wild West Shows and they have been playing in Illinois, West Virginia, Ohio, and this week the aggregation is at Huntington, attending the county fair at that place. He received information that he was reported to have been killed one day last week and, after the news reached him, he immediately boarded a train and came home to spend a day or two with his mother.
He is very anxious to find the person that started the rumor of his death. He intends returning to Huntington in the next two or three days.
