In Honor of Miss Brady
Mrs Adhemar Brady entertained
the Progressive Culture Club inform
ally but most delightfully and in
her usual free and charming manner
Tuesday afternoon in honor of Miss
Daisy Brady who has been a valued I
member of the club since its organi
zation and whose marriage to the
Rev Mr Rowan is to take place early
next month
At 3 oclock the appointed hour
the guests began to arrive each
bringing a mysterious little package
which was quietly handed to the
hostess in the hall unobserved by
the guest of honor who was already
stationed in the parlor
The arrivals continued until almost
the entire club was present in a body
forming a bright intellectual and
congenial company
First on the programme were ques
tions read bythe hostess which called
for honor bright and true true
written answers from each married
lady present the unmarried ladies
being the judges and in this very
amusing contestthere being sever
al nearly perfect husbands the
drawing plan was resorted to the re
sult of which gave Mrs F A Mor
gan the prize for possessing the mod
Next was the auctioning of hus
bands which was rather a leap in
the dark as each name was conceal
ed in a tightly sealed envelope but
the vivid and alluring descriptions
by the auctioneer called for lively
and enthusiastic bidding and in this
Mrs E B Wager took the prize for I I
the most valuable husband
Then came the revealing of the
little mysteries The brideelect was
blindfolded and holding a white um
brella was stationed in a convenient
place in the room while to the strains
of a sweet minuet played by Mrs
Robottomthe guests marched up and
placed the contents of the mysterious
little packages fastening each with
fresh rosebud all over the umbr el
la and to streamers of white ribbon
suspended around the neck and ex
tending to the floor so that when
the blind fold was removed from the
bridetobe she found that the show
er had fairly deluged her with dain
ty handkerchiefs of various pattern
and designs Before removing the
blind however the hostess who is
also the president of the club made
a beautiful and appropriately word
ed little speech expressing the good
wishes etc of the club to which the
recipient responded in a few well I
chosen words
A beautiful white lace fan was al
so presented to Miss Brady guest of
honor by the hostess
During the preparations for the
shower Mrs Robottom favored the
assembly with a beautiful and artis I
tically rendered piano selection which
was heartily enjoyed by all
Dainty and delicious refreshments
were served and altogether it pr o
ed a most delightful afternoons en
tertainment I I
