Only at rare intervals is woman
given the opportunity to exhibit
her ability to provide for the pleas

"uncertain, coy, and hard to
please." This opportunity comes,
however, on every fourth year,
when she can, without fear of cou
traduction, assert her right to risk
and not wait the asking. The
young women of Williamston on
Thursday evening of last week,
demonstrated their power to please
and arrange the menu* for giving
delight to their friends of the op
posite sex. To the Masonic Hall,
which had been attrrctively decor
ated, each young woman escorted
her partner, having called for him
at his home. Alexander's Orches

at 0:30 the dancing be»;au Jed by
Mr. and Mr. C. B. Hassell. The
men wore evening clothes and the
women were gowned in lovely cos
tumes which made the scene more
attractive. There were thirty num
bers on the dance cauls and the
hour was late when these were
finished. The management of the
affair wis perfect and tbe young
rntn enjoyed being tbe recipients
of such a delightful favor. During
the evening punch was served by
Mrs. C M, Lanier.
After tbe dance, there were
lun?heous served at tbe homes of Mr.
and Mra. J P. Simpson, Mr. and
Mr?. C. B. Hnstell and Mr. and
Mrs K H Crawford. These were
pleasant endings to an evening
fraught with so much that makes
