two men were permitted to present a
gift to the holder of the roses, and
to pay the bill for the same.
The debate was the chief feature rf
the evening, and resulted in much mer
riment, but no decision, due to the
fact that the judges, two of whom
ranked with the leans, feared to give
the award to their s.de and disliked
to rule in favor of the fats. Th
heavy side of the argument was taken
by bail Mallery, Mrs.- C. E. Slagle and
Mrs. C. W. Fuller, and the thins were
represented by F. V. Hams, Mrs. A.
V. Gavin, Mrs. W. R. Pate and Fred
G. Gurley. The adherents of loth
Fides caught it hot and heavy from the
debaters, but as a fun-make the ar
