St. Valentine's Day was duly eel-, ebrated by the young people of Basic at au entertainment given by the Home Missionary Society at the resi dence of Mr. Myers. The entertain ment was entirely social in its charac ter, and was gotten up by Miss Bald win and other members of the com mittee on entertainment. The parlor and dining room had been profusely decorated with hearts of various colors and sizes, singly and in pairs. The taste displayed in thus placing hearts in view of all and in making it a hearty occasion, was indicative of an adept in dealing with that priceless jewel. After the guests had all arrived other hearts previously paired, apropos the time, were pinned one to a gentle man and one to a lady, on tbe back of one of these were the words from a familiar song; on the other were blanks for the name of the songs. On the face of one was a part of a name of a song, on tbe other was the remaining part. All having received their hearts, they were informed that they were expected to find their partners, and to guess the names of the songs contain ing the words on the back of tbe heart. To the conple guessing the greatest number of names a prize was awarded, a beautiful souvenir spoon containing a heait pierced by an arrow and tbe words, "Basic City, Feb. 14, 1902." In the course of his remarks Rev. H. P. McClintic reminded the young people that, although this is a time of mating, "all that glitters is not gold," and admonished them to labor to possess hearts pare as gold and as true as the sterling silver in the spoon to be delivered. After many other ap propriate words, he caused the eves of all to open wide by so pointing his talk as to place each in a state of ex pectancy. -But when all had been severely tried, he announced the names of tbe successful couple, Mr. Charlie Henkel and Miss Fannie Bur gess, and handed the spoon to Mr. Henkel who gallantly presented it to Miss Burgess. The booby prize was awarded to those who, in the words of the speaker, deserved It, Master Tommie McCrary and Miss Emma Giles. Another feature of the evening was the sending of valentines. The lady receiving the greatest number, Miss Edna Coyner, was awarded a chain of hearts. After much time had been consum ed, ostensably in guessing the names of songs, but doubtless really in guess ing the way to a fair lady's heart, re freshments were served much to the relish of those engaged in such ardu ous work. Strange to say nearly all appeared to be well pleased with the pairing that resulted from the matching of hearts. In each case there were "two souls with a single thought, two hearts that beat as one. Among those paired off were: Mr. C. P. Herring and Miss Efße Humphreys; Mr. Oscar Newcomb and Miss Loula Page; Mr. Emmett Burgess and Miss Juanita Newcomb; Mr. Herbert Baker and Miss Bettie Rubush; Mr. Robert Page and Miss Jessie McGhee; Mr. Arthurßusmiselle and Miss Laura Henkel: Mr. N. E. Hippert and Miss Sadie Coyner; Mr. Charlie Henkel and Miss Fannie Bur gess; Mr. George Weiand and Miss Mary Rubush; Mr. Edgard Johnson and Miss Clara Fry; Mr. Frank Hip pert and Miss Edna Coyner; Mr. Cease and Mrs. Cease. Others present were Dr. R. S. Griffith, Dr. and Mrs. AUhouse, Miss A. Laura Baldwin, Mr. John Cricken berger, and Masters Louis Griffith, Fife and Clay Sbumaker. After an enjoyable evening tbe crowd left about 12 o'clock with light hearts. An Observer. —THE — Shenandoah CAFE.
