Mr. Harrison lias asked nic to act as
president during his absence, and I hope
that you will co-operate with nie in
making the annual banquet a great suc
cess. It is our plan this year to invite all of

privilege of bringing one friend who is
not an alumnus. The honorary alum
ni, husbands or wives of alumni, will
especially be welcomed. A special in
vitation will be sent to each alumnus
whose address is known.
The banquet will be given the evening
or September 6, at a place to be an
nounced at an early date. The price
per plate will be one dollar, and mem
bership dues fifty cents.
Let each and every member boost,
and we will have one of the happiest
reunions ever known in Union City.
Alumni of the nineties that read this
notice are urged to write the members
of their class, who hrve left Union City,
that we may have a great reunion.

Deering hay tools are doing good, reliable work, not
only for users in this country, but also in foreign countries.
They will do good work for you. Next time you are in
town, come in and let us show you the Deering line of hay
machines. We will be glad to explain how they will save
you time and labor.
The Deering line of hay tools consists of mowers,
sweep rakes, stackers and tedders. You will be interested
in the new improvements of these machines. Perhaps you
don't expect to buy, but as long as an investigation does
not place you under any obligation to buy, isn't it to your
advantage to come in and see us ? You can't help but get
some information which will be valuable to you. Come in
and get a catalogue anyhow.

A CHARITY LAWN FETE.
Parasols Galore Transparent Hat
Brims and Edges.
On the Hudson, July 22. Nothing
prettier can be imagined than a lawn
fete on the Hudson, in the city limits
too, mind you, though it would have
been hard to convince an outsider
alighting from an airship, that the
wide lawns, great spreading trees, and
hundred-year-old mansion overlooking
several miles of river with its toweling
barrier of palisades, could be even near
the hot bustling metropolis, that has
engulfed this and many another quiet
rural neighborhood. A well known
charity for children benefited, and the
whole place had an air of old-fashioned,
home-like hospitality, that was a far
cry from the ordinary sale.

Transparent parasols of lace, net or

straw brims with the new skimpy frills

seen on all sides.
A LA VKNDER VOILE GOWN.
A dress of lavender voile with satin of
a darker shade, in bands edging the
tunic and making the draped girdle,
that finished in a wide spreading fan at
the left side in front, where the skirt
parted over a lace petticoat, and the
ruflles of deep cream Venice lace,
which edged the wide lace collar tucked
into the belt fichu fashion. The hat of
lavender English straw, had string of

back and floated down below the waist,
was topped by deep green foliage and
yellow roses. The parasol was unlincd

Perhaps the most noticed get-up was

ostrich tips in black.
HLACK ASD WHITE.
The rigs of black and white stripes
in voiles were endless, and each style
seemed more fetching than the last. '
All sorts of devices were used to change
the direction of the stripes, and a touch .
of vivid contrasting color in the trim
mings was the rule. The parasol, often
in pagoda shape, was either to match
this color, or in black or white, but
the color note was most effective.
WATCH YOUR HAIR, LADIES.
Eterkai. Vigilance is the Price op
Luxuriant and Radiant Hair.
If dandruff germs are devouring the
nourishment that belongs to the hair, it
will soon begin to fall. Furthermore,
it will lose its life and lustre and become
dull, faded and even look slovenly.
If you have any signs of dandruff,
you ought to go right to your druggist
to-day and get a bottle of PARISIAN
SAGE. This delightful and refreshing
hair tonic is guaranteed by Oliver's Red
Cross Drug Store to kill dandruff germs,
clean the head -of filthy dandruff, stop
falling hair and itching scalp or money
back. And it does just what it is guar
anteed to do, and that's why its sales
are so enormous the country over.
PARISIAN SAGE is the favorite of
refined women. One bottle proves its -superiority.
