SHOWER FOl HISS AUSTIN.
Dlelightful Entertainment. for Miss
Kate Austin on the Eve of Her De.
parture for Egypt.
Cross 11111, Sept. 28.-The most de
lightful social event of the week was
.t surprise shower given by Liberty
Springs church through the mission
ary society to Miss Kate Austin, one
)f the fall brides, at her home, "The
Daks". Mrs. W. M. Miller, president
:>f the society, in a few well-chosen
words made known the mission of the
lparty. In behalf of the guests, she ex
pressed her grief over losing such a
faithful and devoted Christian worker
that Miss Austin has proved to be in
the Liberty Springs church since her
Infancy. But, at the same time, she
idded words of cheer and encourage
ment, wishing her a long, happy and
useful life in the Master's service.
't'hen .\Miss Austin was presented with
rinite a valuable gift of silver from
lhe church and the assembled guests.
Presently, the brido-elect. :,lipped
Iway, and, as the first glad notes of
the wedding march rang out, she en
lered the room dressed in her wed
hIing costume, a lovely creation of
hand-embroidered chiffon, taffeta, and
real pearls. .lust four continents,
Asia, Africa, l' urope and North Amer
lea, were required to furnish the ma
Ierial for this decidedly international
w'etdlding gown. Many lovely and
handlsomie gifts attest the populiti y
of both the bride and groom.
