! THE PARTY AT MR. PICKETT'S.
* As usual the party on ihe27ilault.
at Mr. J. C. Pickett's was a great success.
The guests began to arrive at
r 7.30 o'clock and at 8.30 they were all
" there. After a few moments of pleasg
ant chat the big hall was cleared and
the first game commenced. They were
our isme old pames ihat are always
new. The fir*i vra9 "Steal Partners."
They werr ul first rather slow iB getting
to their places, because all seemed
" ?? v. iv,:,
too wen sau?ueu wiu iuca iwiwcn
in conversation to join in a game like
this. In fact, there were some who
were ?o satisfied they would not. The
2 music was furnished by Mrs. Pickett
on the organ and Mr. George Moore
on the harmonic*. It was most excellent,
and of all the evening's players
n we thought them best. Oar mandolin
' and gnitar players did not bring their
^ instruments and we contented our'r
stives with the organ and harmonica.
re The first game started, the whole scries
were gone through; each succeeding
one being carried ou: with the greatest
c. amusement, especially the one called
n "Going to Jerusalem," in which the
girls please the boys to ihe utmost.
Then came the game "Clip," and alt
J# whirled to their heart's content. Some
re liked this game better than "Steal
g< Par'ner#," as they never did like any
? nf the little stealing games that are
I often practiced, beiides thert were a
| few who wouldn't play it becanee it
re I was too tnocb like dancing, ard that
J j out of their sphere.
