The towel turned in by Edwin Brad way was neatly bound in galvanized iron, while Charles Glenn’s was clev erly ruffled. Miss Glenn was presented with a clothes basket full of beautiful and useful articles, each one being clev erly labeled with a quotation indicat ing its future use. The reading of these quotations and the unwrapping and displaying of the contents caused great merriment, although the bride to-be would have preferred opening some of them minus an audience. About midnight the dining room doors were thrown open, and the guests ushered into a beautifully decorated and bountifully laden table, where Miss Glenn had the decorated seat of honor. The table decorations were pink and white. About 36 guests were present from Wildwood, Pennsgrove and Bayonne.
