The attractive Strother home, in
its beautiful surrounding . woodland
scenery, with its fragrant old fash

blossoms, was a charming scene of
truly Southern hospitality.

in the spacious parlor, the devotions
being followed by th e secretary,
Miss Sarah Collett's report of the
October meeting, which was delight
fully entertained by Mrs. R. C. Pad
gett. The president, Mrs. P. M. Fel

and greater achievements.

hospitality of the hostesses, the blaz

old furniture, brightened with masses
of autumn flowers, will linger in the

Little Adelaide Adams Cele
brates Third Birthday.
About twenty five of her youthful
friends were guests of little Adelaide
Adams on Saturday afternoon the ll,
the occasion being her third birthday.
Upon arriving, the guests were re
ceived by Adelaide, assisted by her
mother, Mrs. W. W. Adams, Jr., and
her grandmother, Mrs. Carroll of
Augusta, and delightful fruit punch
served to them on the front porch.
The living room of the house was
beautifully decorated, big vases of
pink and white chrysanthemums be
ing used attravtively in the color
scheme of pink and white. In the din
ing room, pink and white streamers
were hung from the chandelier to the
four corners of the table, on which
the big white birthday cake was
placed.^On the cake were three light
ed pink candles burning. .
Many interesting games were play
ed on the lawn from three until five
o'clock, when the litle folks were in
vited into the dining room, which to
them was a scene of veritable en
chantment. Here they were served
delicious ice cream and cake. Upon
departing each one was presented j
with a lovely little pink basket filled I
with pink and white mints, as a sou
venir of the happy occasion.
The little hostess received many
beautiful and useful gifts. This beau
tiful and attractive little girl was
never so radiant as in receiving her
friends; and quite as interested in en
tertaining them as a young lady of
mature years would have been.
