Hlato atreet I'tiUdH AUGUST* SOCIAL SET TURNS OUT FOR ANNUAL CHARITY BALL IN AID LOCAL GENERAL HOSPITAL The annual Charity Ball, held Thuraday evening at the City hall for the benefit of the Augusta General hospital, under the direction of the Hospital Aid, was largely attended. It is easily acclaimed a success, both from the standpoint of being the sea son'e-leading social event and of add ing to the coffers of the Aid. Evergreen trees, tho cream of the forest, were the prominent decora tions of the -Aall. Stately fir trees graced the corners of the hall, formed a delightful wall for the section re served for the receiving line and other guests, filled crooks and corners and aided in converting the hall into a solid green bower. Wreaths, many of them, hung from the panels about the wall, under the balcony and «jnore wreaths adorned the balcohy railings. Nature’s own color predominated everywhere. A lattice work of green boughs hid the stage foundation from i view. Wreaths filled in the lattice intersections. The only bit of color in the entire decorations except the green, was found at the refreshment table, where dazzling poinsettas formed a wreath : about another tiny tree, which stood guard in the center of the table. The [ simple decorations proved such a | surprise and then again 6uch a de j lightful relief from those of other oc casions. Effective is the prosaic ad i Jective to use, yet it is ?he adequate j cm—for tho decoraticns Vcre just that. A maze of colors—attractive maids and matrops in beautiful gowns— found a pleasing background in the bower-like surroundings. Pome very stunning costumes were observed among the dancers—especially the younger society set of the city. Not everyone, danced because not every one intends to do so, when every one goes to the Charity Ball. The balcony was well filled with specta i tors until the end of the evening. Front seats in the balcony were early filled, some of tlie*pooplc com ing ns early as shortly after 6 o’clock. The desire of the committee to have this year’s Charity Ball what is known as on old-fashioned Charity Bail, such as was enjoyed a few years back, were certainly fulfilled. The long order of dances was enjoyed but the novelties, the innovations and the. original features which find their way Into local social events, were conspicuously lacking, Thursday evening. The music for the evening wjts fur nished by Douglas’ orchestra and the boys ‘did themselves grand’ as the expression goes in giving to the danc ers the best of their line. Several i of the latest musical numbers of the ■ day were featured by the Douglas’ orchestra in their program. Tho first part of the evening was taken up with a reception, the mem bers of the receiving-line, headed by Mayor Panford I,. Fogg, graciously greeting tho guests. Charles 1’. Kinsman was floor di rector and lie was assisted l>y an ef ; fleient. corps of aids. The evening’s | events w ere without mar and the en . tire program was conducted along (lines as planned with a high credit to j the various competent committees in charge. Those Who Received In flip receiving' line were Mayor Sanford I,. Fogg, Sirs. Fogg, Mrs. 1C. : C. Carll, retiring president of the i Hospital Aid, Mrs. \V. H. Williams, i new president of the Hospital Aid, I Hon. George E. Macomber, Mrs. I Macomber. Work of the Aid It might be well at this time to I give a brief outline of the work which the Hospital Aid carries out. They help the Augusta'.General Hos pital In many ways. From a $.1,000 | fund they furnish a perpetual free bed and besides that, each year they 1 raise another amount to furnish a second free bed. All the sewing of the hospital Is done by the Aid, they doing the cutting out and the sew ing. Aside from this, the Aid does a great deal of extra work for the hos pital as the need arises.

The Ladies’ Aid of the Augusta General hospital, endeavora to keep stocked the linen, closets of the hos pital and the proceeds of the Charity ball are to go towards that purpose. It takes a great deal of linen to fill the requirements of this splendid establishment, the Augusta General hospital and thus, the work which the Aid carries on is a most worthy one.

Join promptly when the call ■ comes. One hundred and fifty sehool Don’t Spoil Your Hair By Washing It When you wash your hair, he careful what you use. Most soaps and pre pared shampoos contain too much al kali, which is very injurious, as it tiries the scalp and makes the hair brittle. The best thing to use is Mulsifled coeoanut oil shampoo, for this is pure and entirely grraseless. Its very cheap and heats anything else all to pieces. You can get Mulsifled at any drug store, and a jew ounces will last the whole family for months. Simply moisten the liair with water and rub it in. about a teaspoonful of Mulsifled is all that is required. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out easily. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and is soft, fresh looking, bright, fluffy, waxy and easy to handle. Besides, it loo^ns and takes out every particle of dust, dirl and dandruff. Be sure your druggist gives you Mulsifled. Adv. SWEATER FREE See E. E. Davis & Co’s.

CONY HIGH NOTES | The Chizzle AVizzlo Fair committee ! has decided upon the form of enter tainment whh h will be given the first two nights. This will be a min I strel show' built around the theme of the Kennebec Water-Ways. The name of the extravaganza will bo j “Deep Serine" or “The Voyage of the i Good Ship Cony.” The scenario lias I been prepared by members of ttfo faculty and offers good chances for the introduction of rapid-fire end men stuff, some of the latest popular songs, both solos ; r.d chorus, and 'other clever special numbers. Mr. Harrison C. Lyseth will prepare the orchestration of the muscial themes and will also direct the selection of tiie end-men songs and things of j that kind. Mr. Lys°th has had much ! experience in coaching school min | strel show s and his work will no doubt add to the work of tHe program. Mrs. Atherton, the new supervisor Of music has been invited to direct the chorus work and the preparation for the solos. There will he a larger number than usual of the group dan ces and tills feature, of the entertain ment will be under the direction of Miss Florence Nichols, supervisor of physical training. The scenic effects this year will he gorgeous. It will ho necessary to reconstruct the City hall stage to quite an extent to accom modate the number of people that will he required. In connection with the awards of football letters which is to take place this morning there will he an added attraction in the opening of the win ter sports carnival campaign. Alden Hitehborn, chairman of the general committee, Lawrence Purinton, chair ; man of the publicity committee and ; Secretary George Clarlte of the Cham ! ber of Commerce will lie on hand to : present the matter to the students : of the High school, j The basketball game tonight will , probably bn the best of the season. I.ast year Morse gave Cony the worst beating that she received and this | was on the home floor. All this after Cony had trimmed such schools ps Edward I.ittle and Sanford. Cony will : endeavor to turn the tables this ^ear. ' Morse has a clever team and they have already defeated Rockland and jAVesthrook by. big scores, and lost the ; Edward Little game only through i i fouls. They, have a f no coach this j (year Jn* Ray Haywood, who has aj ; state-wide reputation ' which was 1 ! greatly added to by the work which I j he did with the Balmont Club of j Westbrook which won the State championship. Therefore tho id«yt that one would get is that the Coify team has its work cut out for it if Cony is to score a win. .
