The occasion was Miss El va's ei";lit birthday and one not soon to be for gotten by those who were present. It was an ideal summer day and the; chil dren enjoyed ft as only a group of half a hundred jolly few lov ing boys and girls can. The heart would (have been made L'gkul could you have witnessed the yard full of bright eyes and smiling faces and heard the joyous laughter of the little ones at their innocent games. Then came the refreshments Oh! sucli delicious ices, creams, cakes and candies, served on prettily decorated tables. But we cannot describe that as it should be for we only peeped through the fence and heard broken exclamations of surprise and delight in childish voices. As the sun neared the horizon we heard the guests bidding their little entertainers good bye and telling them how quickly aud pleasantly the af ternoou had passed. 'TWAS SWELL. The reception given by Miss Viiginia Bristow at the lovely home of her uncle. Maj. K. U. Bristow, last Friday from 4 to 0 p. m. was very swell like the young lady. Miss Mable Gifford of Edina, in whose honor it was given. The feminine elete of the city was there, it included the ladles ot "The young mar ried set" "The so called uninar tied set " and then the dear sweet kid set, that is the ones who are just "Sweet sixteen, ripe as a peach hanging on a limb who'll reach for me." Their eyes rivaled the stars, their Cheeks the roses, their brows the UHies, their teeth the pearls and not a piece of masculininity was there to marr the perfect scene on the lawn, verandas or in the parlors. It was a joy ous party free from the cores of life, no'ie there to criticise or say them uey. They had their own "Sweet will" and tog fel low up a tree the whole thing was sweet with one exception land that was being shut out of j the garden where the buds, blos ! soms and roses grew. Some I sixty ladies were present and ' the two hours flew by on the j wings of music and spicy chat- ter and laughter followed by re freshments enjoyed by all.
