A double birthday celebration took place
on Tuesday evening among the young so
ciety people of Helenn, it being the natal
day of both Miss Frances Jurgens and
Charles Reinig. The young couple enter
tained a number of their friends at the
hospitable home of Miss Jurgens on Park
avenue, and a highly epjoyable time was
participated in. The house was beautifully
decorated with quantities of ferns, carna
tions and roses. The dining table was a
mass of beautiful flowers, fifteen dozen
roses being used in the decorations, be
sides other flowers. The birthday cake
was placed in the center of the table, and
bore on it approprlate Spanish and Latin
mottoes. The early part of the evening
was devoted to a cobweb gathering, and
great fun it was picking out one's thread
from the labyrinth that wound in and out,
under chairs, over pictures, under tables,
through doorways, up on the celiings. On
the end of all the threads were beautiful
fanoy cobwebs of colored silks, and to the
two who were winners in the race were
given prises. The filst prize awarded to
the lady winner was a beautiful hand
painted tray (the work of the young hos
tess) and Miss Clara Ballard carried it off
in triumph. The fortunate gentleman was
Albert Hotter, and the award a painted
ash tray. The sluggards in the race, while
their progress may have been like the
snail's, slow, were not in this instance sure.
The booby prizes were an A B C book and
a baby doll, won respectively by Mr. Ster
ling and Miss Ada Roberts. After elabor
ate refreshments were served the young
folks present were blindfolded and re
quired to draw a pig and to sign their
name to their product while yet blind
folded. The prize for the best drawn
work was given to Walter Sanford, a box
of Hyler's candy, and Miss Alta Child se
cured the booby prize, which was a candy
*Mies Jurgens received some very beauti
ful presents; twenty acres of sapphire fields,

boxes of flowers, a bouquet of lillies of the
yalley, chiffon handkerchief, and yellow

Mrs. Beinig, the Misses Alta Child, Al

Much interest is being shown all over the
country toward the formation of a national
organization of the ceramic amateurs of
America. The chief idea of the proposed
association is to promote mineral painting,
so that at the World's Columbian expo
sition Americans may be represented in
this branch of fine art and to establish a
purely native school of ceramic art with a
view to encourage and strengthen the po
sition of mineral painters. This class of
artists have not hitherto worked as a body,
but it is hoped that by a combined move
ment of clubs in the different cities cer
amic workers can . cure space at the
World's fair which would be denied to in
dividuals. This art was in the past kept
clouded in mystery, and it is only within
the last half of the present century that
much light has been thrown on the subject.
The members of the national club have no
doubt that success will bring honor to the
founders and to America.
At the world's exhibit there will be no
charge for space but to mese the expenses
of transportation of goods and their ar
rangement, and for a custodian to keep I
them in order a small fee will be required
from each member. The greater part of
the display at the exposition will be the
work of women. It is estimated that about
thirty branch societies have been started
throughout the United States. They all
seem to be flourishing, the members all be
ing exceedingly enthu.siastio, giving der
lightful receptions. and are deeply inter
ested in the work.
Mrs. Frankelton, who was in Helena sv- t
eral weeks during last summer and in
structed several ladies in mineral painting,
is the honorary president of the Manhattan
club of New York, of the Salt Lake City
China club, of the California Ceramic club,
and has lately been elected. the honorary
president of the club formed in this city..
She has been engaged in organiziung ceramic
clubs all over the country in view of the
proposed exposition, and is now occupied
in that pursuit in the western palt of the
Mr. L. F. Grunewald, of Chicago, who
has done more than any one else, especially
at the west, toward the advancement of this
art, has been urged for the position of chief I
of the department of coramnic art at the 1
World's fair. Miss Phillips, of our city, 1
has had displayed in the art rooms of Mr.
Grunewald specimens of her work, and that
gentleman has communicated with her ask
ing that she should organize a like club in
Helena that would be a part of the national
association. There has been one mneetinu i
of ladies regarding this proposed plain, held
at the apartments of Mrs. Phillips, in the
Diamond blook. A ceramic club was I
formed, Mrs. J. T. Murphy beting elocted
cresident, Miss IRumley secretary, and Miss
Phillips treasurer. The other ladies present
were Mesdames Botkin, Child, Joseph Davis.
Siebin, Misses Ciuse, Gerner, Dickenson,
Marie Kleinschmidt and Irma Kleinsolmidt.
It was decided to hold meetinug on the first
Monday in each month. It is not compul
sory that all who join the club shall send I
speooimens of their work to the exhibit, but I
a large membership is desired, and it is
hoped that all who are interested in the
proposed work for the ensuine year will not
fail to attend the next meeting, which will
be held April 41, at the rooms of Miss Phil- I
lips, in the Diamond block.
Mrs. Murphy, the president of the Co- 1
ramic club, of the city, has received a com- i
munication from the preiident of the Man- I
hattan club, of New York, asking if the so
ciety hero will join the national association
anti if the membors in this city will senid a
delegate on to New York. As thers are
several matters of importanoce to comle be- .
fole the club, it is desired that the ladies E
should mneet at an early day. All that are
interested in the ! roposed work of tLhiclub
are cordially invited to meet at the apart
mentis of Miss Phillips, in Diamond blook,
on Monday evening, the 28th.
