The tables, in the form of T’s, were beautifully decorated in the national colors, flowers and ferns. Covers were laid for one hundred guests. The menu consisted of five courses: Oyster cocktail fol lowed by a salad course served in apple cups half buried in'pars ley and crowned by whipped cream, a crimson cherry on top of each snowy cup completed the artistic whole. Ham and turkey sandwiches with cranberry jeby dressing, olive*, pickles ard beaten biscuit preceded the cream and cake. The individual cakes were adorned in red icing with “W. C. T. U.” in letters of white: the cream was in the form of cylinders centered with scar let hearts. Coffee and cheese hearts pierced with the Cupid darts completed the service. The favors consisted of Washington hatchets, cunningly devised fans of red, white and blue tied with white ribbon.

Mrs. Yates responded Iby ex pressing her appreciation and ended with an appeal for total abstinence. She said no one would willingly become a drunk ard, but that the first glass opened the way for the insidious poison to claim its victim; “Taste not, handle not” the only safe method to follow.
