FUNCTI DN.
(For last week.)
Saturday afternoon June Ist

lightful function tendered by
Mesdames W. B. Montgomery
and J. W. Pope to the graduat
ing class of the A & M College
and to Miss Sallle Leßoy Betts
the guest of Miss Sadie Pope.
The weather defeated the orig
inal plan for a June lawn party,
but nothing daunted the gloom
of gray clouds and chill of wind
ey winds was met by the
warmpth and glow within as the
hospitable door of Mrs. Pope’s
cottage opened to rceive the large
number of guests who responded
to this invitation.
Under soft glow of the electric
light which changed day into
evening gallant students and fair
maids made a briiiant picture to
the frame work of beautiful
flowers that adorned the walls
while inspiring strains of Music
from the College orchestra lifted
the spirits of gay youth into the
summer atmosphere that should
have been, save that “Winter
lingered too long in the lap of
{Spring.” Miss Betts attended in
a lovely princes gown of blue
Liberty Satin with a garniture of
lace and for-get-me-nots by her
dignified, gracious bearing drew
all hearts unto her and well
sustained the reputation of the
place of her nativity. Hunts ville,
Ala., for the grace and culture
of its women.
Misses Alice Montgomery and
Anne Pope, presided at the
punch bowl. With the serving
of an ice, the class colors were
pinned upon each person by
Misses Julia Adelaide and
Margaret Montgomery and Miss
Mary Barry Rogers who assisted
Miss Sadie Pope in caring for
the guests.
Swiftly sped the hours that
brought the after noon to a close
wjjh many expressions of pleas
are by all who participated in
the festivities.

In Washington a man must
not clench his fist and shake it
at the White House. This little
preforraace caused a man to be
adjudged insane the other day.
No wonder Attorney-General
Bonapajt is rather slow in tack

on his list is the dynamite trust
and to hammer it well you can
see what may occur —Ex.

He surely found it#
A nervous-looking maq went
into a store the other day and
sat down for half an hour or so,
when a clerk asked him if there
was anything she could do far
him, He said no, he didn’t want
an thing. She went away and he
sat an hour longer, when the
proprietor went to him and ask if
he wanted to be shown anything.
“No,” said the nervous man, I
just wanted to sit around. My
physican has recomended quite
ness for me, and says above all
thing I should avoid being in a
crowd. Noticing that you do
not advertise in the newspaper,
I thought that this would be as
quiet a place as I could find, so I
just dropped in for a few hours
of isolation —Ex.

Truly Expressed
The politician is my shepherd.
I shall not want for anything in
this campaign. He leadeth me
into the saloon for my votes sake.

family, even unto the fourth gen
eration. Yea, though I walk
through the mud and the rain to
vote for him, and shout myself
hoarse when he is elected. A1
though I meet him in his own
house he knoweth me not, Surelv
the wool has been pulled oter
my eyes all of my I life
and I shall dwell in the house of
a chump forever. —Ex.
