Kill ion in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Its organ ization. The house was attractively decorated with plants and vases of cut flowers and about forty members and guests enjoyed the delightful af ternoon. No special program was prepared, the occasion being a very informal one., Mrs. George A. uidds, jr., naa compiled , a' history of tho club and she read this at the. beginning of the party. Following, were a variety of fun making contests and games into which the members and guests en tered very enthusiastically. Mrs. J. D. Carlton, a former member of the club sang two charming numbers and Miss Louise Adams played a pi ano solo. The credit of the enter tainment is due the splendid man agement of the committee in charge, Mrs. Norbon Bourne, Mrs. Henry Stanfleld and Mrs. Clarence Cloy.i, as well as Mrs. Killlon,1 the club's president, who is at all times a most charming and gracious hostess. It was with great pleasure that the club entertained two of its char ter members, Mrs. J. B. Hibbitts, who is still an active member, and Mrs. W. H. Gardner, who is visiting in the city. The large birthday cake with ts twenty-five pink candles conceal ed the favors, attractive little books bound in silver and tied with pur ple and white pencils, the club col ors. The candles were lighted by Mrs. Gardner and blown out by sev eral of the guests who made happy wishes for the club. The refreshments were served in the club colors and a small bouquet of violets adorned each plate. Matinee Music Club. The meeting of the Matinee Music Club on Nov. 4 was most effectively led by Miss Mayes, on the subject, oratorio, and the tollowing pro gram of pleasingly familiar selections was presented: Piano: "See the Conquering Hero Comes" (Handel), Miss Jones. Voice: "He Shall Feed His Flocks" from "Messiah" (Handel), Mrs. Lee and Miss Beck. Piano: The Dead March Saul" (Handel), Mias Allen "Saul" (Handel), Miss Allen.

On Thanksgiving evening, Novem ber 30, in the Reynolds theatre, there will be r. treat in store for the music lovevs of Union City, and for all who enjoy an entertainment of merit. As previously announced, the attraction will be Mr. and Mrs. Gio vanni Spcrandeo. They have given concerts in many cities and towns and have been enthusiastically re ceded, and Judging from rress com ments their work is universally ap preciated. St. Louis Current Thought (studio paper): "The concert of Signor Spcrandeo was one of delight and true satisfaction. In the aria 'Che Gelida Mamma' from 'La Bo heme' Signor Spcrandeo demonstrat ed his beautiful endowments as a p singer by using his lyric tenor voice with great accuracy in order to ren der his tones harmonious, delicate, overflowing with fineness, graceful ness and tender feelirrf."

The code 'cf Tennesseo is the Iatt place one should look for a history of the social customs of the people of the State. . But nevertheless much curious information along -that line can be obtained therefrom. How many heads of hcuscEolds in tho Volunteer Stare, for instance, know that $35 worth of roughness i3 exempt from seizure . or execution ? Benighted people in urban communi ties might not even know that the roughness referred to means oats, hay or fodder. A New, York City denizen, for instance, hearing $35 worth of rough nes;; referred to, would I undoubtedly liavo a vaguo idea tha: the subject mentioned was a gallon! of peculiarly atrocious 3oonsh:'ne liquor." . I Our exemption laws go back to1 the eighteenth century. Two beds are exempt, and for every three chil dren in a family one additional bed free from execution. Evidently three to a bed was a minimum in the case of children with our ancestors. In addition, the unfortunate fami ly man against whom a verdict has tten rendered can retain, among oth er household articles, one pair of cot ton cards, a Bible and hymn book, two gourds and two punger gourds. . How many modern Memphians are there who know the distinction be tween an ordinary goura ana a pun ger gourd? One washing kettle ia free from the sheriff's clutch, as is also a chopping ax, ono spinning wheel and one loom and gear. If there is a spinning wheel or a loom in Mem phis to-day it is because they are preserved as ornaments.' In the way of provisions the larder allowed tho unfortunate debtor is mere hearty than varied. One thou sand pounds of pork is exempt for a family of less than six. For condi ments the head cf tho family can re tain three strings of red peppers, 50 pounds of salt and ono pound of black pepper. Pork and sorghum molasses are alj out of proportion to the other food allowances. A mar ried man can keep free from attach ment 100 gallons of long sweetening, whereas three bushels of corn meal must provide tho family bread. Fac ing the world with half a ton of pork and a hundred gallons of sorghum the execution debtor need not fear starvation unless lack of vitamines plays havoc with his system. Evidently going barefoot was more common when this act was passed than now, and shoes wore made at home and not bought at s- store, for in the exemption list is included "a sufficient quantity of leather to pro vide winter ehoes for the family." "Summer shoes" wero evidently con sidered an effeminate luxury. Few citizens, lawyers included. can keep up with our flood of stat utes. The most law-abiding citizen on earth is likely at any moment to innocently an l unwittingly break far more laws, Sta'c and National, than did Moses when in a fit of anger ,he smashed the ctono tablets containing the ten commandments. Any good citizen ambling down the street is likely to disrcaul and disobey whole flocks of legislative statutes and mu nicipal ordinances and- never know he did it. But we suggest that the exemption law of Tennessee be revised and brought up to date. For instance, a laboring man has $36 of his wages not subject to garnishment. That exemption was allowed in a time when $1.25 per day was liberal wages and could support a family, nut in luxury, oui in comiort. roaay $1.25 per diem would merely aggra vate the family's appetite. It is a far cry from the days when Henry ciay made his campaign for "two dollars per day and roast beef for every American laboring man." At least $60 a month of every work ingman's wages should be exempt from garnishment. State Senator Carl Larsen, while representing all the people of Shelby County, especially represents the la boring population. We respectfully suggest to him hat in co-operation with some of the lawyers of the Shel by County delegation he draft and father a bill to raise the working- man s wage exemption. Tennessee is far behind its neighboring States in that respect. No community can per manently prosper where its laboring population is harassed and a poor devil of a workingman with a family to support, whom sickness or misfor tune has put in debt, and whose wages except for a mea3ly dollar and a quarter per day is seized by his creditors, is harassed indeed.
