Three Birthdays.
The village of Cane Valley is not very
large, asmany readers of the News
know, but it is large enough to have
three persons dwelling in its midst,
whose birthdays areupon the same day,
the first of December. These persons
are: Misses Julia Moo re, Pinkie Callison
and little Miss Mary Martha Hutch
inson. This bright little Miss is but
two years of age. The writer also has
testimony as to to the ages of the
other two, but as they are a might old
er than a youug bride of the village,
the writer holds her peace.
Because of these young ladies and
this little Miss having birthdays on
the very same day, the hospitable
home of Mr. "Will Smith was thrown
open and his daughter, Mrs. Charity
Moore, entertained in honor of them.
Mrs. Moore was assisted by Mrs. Wil
Jie Hutchinson and Mrs. Susie Page.
These ladies served to forty-one
guests, one of the most sumptuous
dinners One of the kind one reads
about, and the mouth fairly waters for
some of the savory dishes. So a de
scription will be withheld, having
much pity for those who could not
partake of the bounties which Mrs.
Moore prepared.
Each of the young ladies received
jiice presents
December the first was upon Sun
day. The young people went to Sun
day School and attended church serv
ices, then went to the home of Mr. I
.Smith. While the writer connot ap
2rovo of making the First day a day of
visiting and banqueting, yet she was
much pleased at the quiet, sincere en
joyment of the company and with
their becoming behavior on this .day.
The day was ideal. The affair a most
enjoyable one.
