I at . J. C. Pickett's was a great su
cess. The guests began to arri-at
7.30 o'clo& and at 8.30 tiey were all
there. After a few moments-of pleas
ant chat the' big ball was cleared and
the irst game'commenced. They were
our same old- games that are always
new:. The first was "Steal Partners."
'Thev were at first rather slow in get
ting to their places, because all seemed
too well satisfied wi:h their partners
in conversation to join in a game like
this. In fact, there were some who
were so satisfied they would not. The
music was furnished by Mrs. Pickett
on the organ and Mr. George Moore
on the harmonica. It was most excel
lent, rnd of all the evening's players
we thougbt them best. Our mandolin
ano guitar players did not bring their
listruments and we contented our
selves with the organ and harmonica.
The fi:st game started, the whole series
were gone through; each succeeding
one being carried out with the greatest
amusement, especially the one called
"Goihg to Jerusalem," in which the
girl. please the boys to the utmost.
Tetn came the game "Cl-p," and all
w Lirled to their heart's content. Some
likr:1 this game better than "Steal
Par: e:r;." as they never did like any
of little stealing games that are
)fte. practiced, besides there were a
fex .o wouldn't play it becaEs it
wa. too much like dancing, and that
out of their sphere.
Promptly at 10.30 o'clock all were
invited to refreshments in the shape of
.a regular supper. It was something of
a cold night and the steaming hot cof
fee was most acceptable. especially to
far-comers. .A wild turkey furnished
part of the repast, and those not used
to this kind of meat recognized the
especially sweet ffavor. The turkey
was killed by Mr. Ira Scott, the re
nowned turkey hunter of our section,
After the supper the guests returned
to the hil to listen to a song by that
most c!ar ning young lady, Miss Hallie
McCormick, of Longtown. The rest
of the games were then played and
some were repeated. All the while
Mr. Pickett and Mr. Scott, looking en
froim a corner, took -turns Fin joking
two certain young ladies who it ap
poari are aftcr the same young man.
It was one o'clock when the party
brohe up, all having enjoyed them
selves to the ntmost; the enj)yment
beinsE due, we feel sure, to Mrs.
Pickett's good management and per
sona lity. Without naming the guests,
I wiii only say they came from the
coutlry in general-from Oakland,
Flir' Hill, one from Edgemeor, lack
lick, Longtown and Ridgeway. All
had a pleasant time and say have an
other' one there. B. J. B.
