What 1b a girl to say when told she

tleman the lady??Curly Locks.
It Is a man's privilege to thank the

him. When any one Is kind enough |

you, It Is very nice to hear pleasant
things," or something like that. I
Is It necessary to leave cards every
time I make a formal call? When
calling with my husband, which one
has charge of tho cards, or do we
each tako care of our own??Monti
In making a formal call It Is always
necessary to leave cards whether tho
persons are home or not. It Is cus
tomary for the wife to carry tho cards
and leavo them at the proper time
when paying visits together.
I wish you would toll me at what
time, and to whom, to send a telegram
of congratulations. The groom-elect
I know very well, but tho bride-elect
not at all.?Anne R.
The congratulatory telegram should
bo addressed to the bridegroom and
timed so as to reach him about tho
hour the ceremony is to take place.
Have It get there a bit early rather
than too late.
An Afternoon Gathering.
Please suggest some way of enter
taining twelve or thirteen couples dur
ing the afternoon. Would you serve
any kind of refreshments??M. L. R.
I heard recently of a very jolly
"travel party." Each lady was asked
to tell her most Interesting experience*.
In travel; each ono was also aBked to
wear or bring an especially prized
object obtained while traveling. Tho
result was a most fascinating time.
Regarding the refreshments, I hard
ly know what you mean by "most any
kind." Don't make the mlstako of hav
Ing too much; a dellclously cold salad
with sandwiches, nuts, glaced fruits
coltee ami chocolate la sufficient, or
an ico with a variety of small cakes.
For a Christmas Present:
I am a girl, seventeen. Would it bo
proper for mo to givo a Christmas
present to a man very much my seni
or? He gave mo a little gift last Xmas
and we are very good friends. If you
think so, please tell me what would'

Certainly, remember your friend
with a Christmas gift, and I think if
you could make him something thnt
it would bo nice. If you can embroid
er, make him a hulf-dozon handker
chiefs or "clock" a couple of pairs of
For Wedding Refreshments.
Will you please help mo about re

ceremony will probably be seven in

country and most of tho guests come
Borne distance and we wish tcr give

Bweetbread if the oysters are served),
hot rolls or tiny buttered biscuit with
two kinds of sandwiches, coffee, ico
cream, cakes and confectionery.
Animal Blind Man's Buff.
I find many versions of old-time
games; for Instance, this way of play
ing our old favorite "Blind Man's
Buff:" Seat the children in a circle,
or they may stand. The leader is
chosen by the time-honored custom
known as "counting out," blind-folded
and placed in the middle. He is giv
en a cane; he then walks around the
:lrcle, Btops and points tho cane, tho
ono it touches or comes closest to
must repeat in a disguised tone tho
noise made by either a cat, dog, cow
or horse. He may repeat the sound
three times. If the blind man cannot
guess, he must try some one else; if
he names tho right child, that ono
takes the placo of the leader.

WILD BULL CHASE.
Messrs Ambrose Hudgons, Joe Smith
und Tom Henderson nre tlio Cham
pion long distance bull chasers of
this corner of the woods. The tale
(not tall) connected with their eleva
tion to this rank is a long one, but the
chase they put up last Sunday after
noon is still longer. The long nnd
short of the whole thing though, seems
to be that thc^e wily steer trailers,
after the successful escape of Wie
above mentioned bull, went in search
of him Sunday afternoon. The bull
belonged to Tom Henderson, but in
some way the two had parted company
The three bull chasers started out to
find him. Tracks lead toward Atlanta
and they followed the tracks. From
along about three o'clock in the af
ternoon until about nine o'clock at
l ight they went after him. Over
i Itches, through the swamps, across
creeks and through barb wire fences
the bull had gone and they had to
follow. Roads were not considered by
the bull In his Might nor by his fol
Having reached McUaniel's mill, out
Reedy river, and still not coming iaW

the three turned wearily homeward,
trusting to fall hack on a laBt resort
on the want ad column of The Adver
tiser. Monday morning, soon after
the ad was given In at the office' and *N
before it had begun to surreptitiously I
dissiminntc through tho mental?dn >
fact before it had been set up In type,
tho results became evident and Mr.
Henderson was Informed that the bull
was resting quietly at Tom Miller's?
place, only a few hundred yards froajl^
where they had given up the chase t^ffiCj
night before. This story Is not in
tended as an advertisement of the_,

Is a true story, which will he vouched
for by all parties concerned. All in
favor of this motion, say "aye".
