SILVER WEDDING CELEBRATED j Mr. and Mrs. John T. Molloy | Surprised by Friends Last Friday Evening - One of the outstanding social | events of the season took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John T. Molloy on Friday evening. May 6. The occasion was the twenty-fifth, wedding anniversary of these Clear water pioneers, who have lived in this section since their early youth. The affair was strictly Informal. The "groom" was a party to the surprise that was sprung on the "bride". He took her out for a walk just after supper. m their absence their friends, numbering about thirty, took possession of the Molloy house. Great was the sur prise of Mrs. Molloy when she and her husband returnea to the house to see it occupied by a large number of neighbors and friend^, who had come to pay their respects to the couple on their silver wedding an niversary The ladies in the crowd immedi ately manhandled the mistress of the house and subjected her to a real "dressing up." When they had! finished with her, Mrs. Molloy was all togged up In proper bride's re galia. The men gave Mr. Molloy a good dose of the same treatment. Thus prepared, a mock ceremony was performed by Judge' W. B. Kinne. No detail in the perform ance was ovei looked, not even the customary osculating. All the men Insisted on kissing the "bride," while the ladies took a "smack" a* tlie groom. Tnlr wa.: no l» 4 .*!,- effo-t t :r the ladies, as they wt'e obliged to penetrate a good coating of "rouge" on the countenance of the "groom" before the smack could be administered. The "rouge" was not a drug store product, but was bor rowed from a shoe blacking can. The kissing ladles got their full share of the facial adornment, which had been generously applied by the gentlemen who maneuvered the cer emony and its accompaniments. The ceremony was followed by a silver wedding gift, given to the celebrants by their visiting friends. The silver was supplemented by a generous sprinkling of rice and a wholesome charivari. The pro gram closed with singing by the friends present and a reading by Mrs. H. J. Honeywell, which was very favorably received by those present.

Hodkinson release, which comes to the Rex Theatre, beginning next Thursday, portrays blindness in her part of "Mary Warren" so naturally and charmingly that the spectator i •does not stop to wonder how she does it. As & matter of fact, the peculiar trick of apearlng blind, | which in her case consisted in keep-( ing her eyes wide open and straight in front of her, unfocussed, looking through and beyond whatever might come before them, took Miss De La Motte a long time to master. Learning to be blind took prac tic* over a period of several weeks,| OFFICERS DOLD CONFERENCE Forest Service and Fish and Game Department Plan to Cooperate On Friday last, an Important con ference was held in Orofino at the county buildings.

For, of course, one could not be blind and look into a mirror, and so was unable to see herself. Her mother was the person who usually aided her, watching her ex pression, telling her how she looked, and whether or not the Impression of blindness was maintained in all her acting of many Improvised parts.
