Lexington, Ky. With the arrival of

Idea for Cotton Wedding.
The flrst year of wedded life brings
tbe "cotton" celebration and tbe occa
sion may be made a regular frolic If
only A congenial few are bidden to
make merry. Make the Invitation spool
shape, a good slxed one. Then deco
rate with cotton batting sifted over
with diamond dust; mass It on the
window sills, mantel, on the) piano and
everywhere that it wlll.be effective.
The host may wear a cotton suit for
this occasion and It will ba easy for
the hostess to wear a cotton gown. If
a suit cannot be managed for tbe
bridegroom, he can wear a cotton shirt
and necktie. Perhaps It will be pos
slble to get real cotton plants with
tbe bursting cotton pods which may be
used In lieu of flowers. Here Is a
laughable stunt with which to start
the evening's fun. Have narrow white
cotton tape arranged as for an old-
fashioned spider web, wind It In and
out, over and under furniture, but in
stead of having all the guests play at
once ask one person at a time and al
low three minutes to see how much
tape he can entangle and roll up In
that time. When the umpire calls,
"Time's up," the piece of tape Is cut
off, and after all have had a chance,
each piece of tape is measured and the
one having the longest piece is award
ed a prize, which should be of cotton
fabric. In the instance where this waa
done the reward was a cotton batting
doll candy box filled with candy. We
have all seen the cotton Santa Claus
figures and the little doll Christmas
tree ornaments? Well, these would be
just the thing for favors at an affair ot
Another pastime would be to pass a
basket filled with different colors and
lengths of cotton tape with knots tied
in them and the trick Is to see who
can untie the greatest number of knots
In the time set. A prize may be of
fered for this. In tbe south little bales
of cotton may be obtained, which

Novel Hard Times Party.
Hero la a new version of a "hard

tations were wruiea on Drown paper
such as butchers use for wrapping
meat, and the lettering was done with
a heavy lead pencil. At the top of the
sheet was this nursery rhyme:
Hark hark; the dogs do bark;
The beggars are coming to town
Some In rags, and some In tags.
And some In a silken gown,
followed by the request to dress "In
gladdest rags" and come to the ad
dress on the day, date and hour given.
Masks to be removed at 10:30. Tbe
hostess handed each "beggar" a dance
program number as high as the num

the largo living-room, which had been
cleared for dancing, a number was
pinned upon tbe back so votes could
be registered as to "who was who,"
for the best (or worst) costume. One
may Imagine the fun such a party
would make. Prisea were awarded and
