Miss Frankie and Miss Daisy, the
daughters of Dr. Dake, of Penn avenue,
who are respectively 3 and 7 years of age,
gave their first party yesterday afternoon to
about 40 of their young friends. The entire
residence of the doctor had been put at the
disposal of the young folks, and they made
the most of their opportunity.
On the ground floor, the rooms had been
transformed into an attractive banquet hall.
The ceilings and the tables were beautifully
decorated, and the delicacies spread were
highly relished by the delighted little ones.
During the afternoon the children were
entertained with music, a magical perform
ance, and a Punch and Judy show. All
these attractions were under the supervision
of Professor Tony White.

from a gloomy tunnel. The delighted guests
