Oct. 25. when a miscellane ous shower was given honoring Miss Caroleen Burlingame, a November bride-to-be. The hostesses for this oc casion were Mesdames O. M. Oliver, R. M. Bone, E, B. Mobley, and C. P. Smith, who left nothing undone for the enter tainment and comfort of the guests. The setting was marked by beauty, simplicity and effectiveness In decor ations and arrangements; the electric lights were reinforced by the soft brilliancy of lighted candles; flowers and ferns were used effectively, the white dahlias and palms giving an exotic effect, while winged cupid kew pees were suspended about the door ways. During the interim of assembl ing music was rendered by Mrs. H. L. Toland, who played “Tangled Rbses,” and “Hearts and Flowers,” with beau tiful expression, and by Mrs. W. W. Bishop who rendered a classical numb er with her usual ease and skill. At a given signal the bride-to-be entered with some of her young friends and was seated in a reserved white chair, her youth, beauty and sunny smile adding brightness to the scene. An entertaining contest called “A Mo tor Ride,” in which the principals of the approaching wedding, Jay Toland and Caroleen, met with many adven tures, was conducted by Mrs. E. B. Mobley. To the sweet strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. J. E. Locke entered Master E, B. Mobley, Jr., in a speeder laden with gifts for the bride elect; these were augmented with others in numbers, which proved to be silver-ware, cut-glass, china, fine linens and other useful articles. Fol lowing the ‘shower’ the hostesses serv ed plates of delicious salad luncheon with coffee. The favors were tiny shower boquets in bridal colors. Miss Katrina Mobley assisted in the service of this pretty social entertainment which continued till a late hour. y A good savsjr for the man who tinkers They Stand Every Test I The sort of tools we sell, such as Atkins Silver Steel Saws ■ save you money, make your work easier, in fact really ■ give you value through years of service. ■ We could sell you “cheap” tools, but for your interests I we recommend the best as cheapest in the long run. ■ Good tools, good hardware, good value in everything gfj I ™ 1 1 Cut This Out An<) remember to stop in and look over our line of Atkina Saws.
