Monclay, fclec. 14, 1525
Shower Fop Bride-Elect.
Marion- Progress. '
To lienor a charming bride-to-be,
Mißß Sara Hudgins, Mrs. J. Q. Gil
key and Mrs. W. W. Neal gave a
shower at Lake James Club House
Wednesday afternoon witch wrs
presented in a piost attractive way.
The eiub house was beautifully deco
rated in Christmas colors and the
glow from the huge fireplace made
the place look even merrier.
Greeting the guests at the door
-were the hostesses and honoree. Mm.
Minnie Blanton had charge of the
register. The guests were given
pieces of Christmas post cards which
on being matched were read aloud
with interest. Some contained quo
tations of sentiment pf , love and
marriages, others were good wishes,
and come were written to provoke
Mrs. P. I). Mangum and Miss
Julia Burton furnished lovely music
during the evening.
T* the surprise of all, Santa
Claus, ever an ingeiflous fellow, sud
denly appeared on the stairway. He
was in regulation Santa Claus attire
with the pack on h:« back and a
right jolly old elf he seemed. He
bade all good afternoon and said he
was sorry to be late but he had to
oome al the way from Concord. As
he descended the stairway he made
many bright and witty remarks and
dontinued his way on into the dining
room which 'by this "time had been
thrown open. There seated under a
canopy covered with snow, or so it
seemed to many wondering eyes, was
the chamning and altogether lovely
bride-to-be at whose feet Santa laid
his pack. Miss Hudgius fitted beauti
fully into this scene. She wore a red
satin, dress and gold turban and her
pretty costume blended rii with the
The pack contained an assortment
of beautiful linens and other gifts
over which the recipient exclaimed
with delight "ns she unwrapped the
dainty, pitekages and passed them on
to the Inrge circle of friends gather
ed close around. The other day we
read that some tiroes Santa Claus
was a woman and in this ease it
proved to be so for-Mrs. D. F. Giles
was the one so cleverly disguised ns
dear old Saint Nick.
The hostesses, assisted by Mrs.
Sam Ynnoy and Mrs. J. E. Neal,
served a dainty and delicious salad
course with coffee, sandwiches, hot
biscuits aud bonbons.
This is the first of a series of par
ties to be given to this popular young
lady whose engagement to Judge
Oglesby of Concord was announced a
few weeks ago.

use this season to stir up the masses
‘ of the people to carry on activities
i against Christianity that the public
may know the evils of Christianity
and of Christian education.
“We are more deeply grieved be
cause the chief causes that lie at the
bottom of this outbreak of anti-
Christian feeling are largely the re
sult of the failure of Christian na

Christianity in China is bearing the
burden of wrong international rela

"We favor the abolition of extra
territoriality in accordance with the
agreements of the Washington con

we favor the immediate abolition of
