Mrs. Wheeler Martin, Sr., was
hostess to a large number of her
lady friends on Friday evening,
January 31st, -the occasion being
the celebration of her birthday.
She received in the front hall of her
beautiful home on lower Main
Street. To each of her guests she
extended a hearty handshake of
welcome, aud Mrs. Fannie Mat tin
Carstarpben, who stood on her
right, showed them to the cloak
room and from thence to the frout
parlor, where the presents were ar
ranged on a table. These were
numerous and beautiful, attesting
the love and esteem in which Mrs.
Martin is held.
"After the assembling of the guests
conversation in general was begun
and much merriment was indulged
in, chasing dull care away.
The hostess was in one of he"
happiest moods, looking the picture
of health and happiness in her rosy
dimpled cheeks and sparkling eyes,
speaking words of cheer to each
one Then all were invited in the
dining room to enjoy a snmptuons
feast; the table was aglow in cut
glass, s.lver and electric lights The
beautiful cut glass bowl in the cen
ter was filled with various fruits
it stooned with grapes from Malaga.
The favors were yellow daffodils;
the design of the plaee cards the
village gossips was very cleverly
executed by our Young Artist.
After greatly enjoying the feait,
all repaired to the parlors to engage
in the guessing contesr. All were
very bnsy for awhile writing the
answers to the fifteeu questions.
The answers were placed in bands
of the judges, who soon returned
and presented Mrs.Watters with the
consolation—a box of candy, which
she was Jeque«ted to band around
|to the others. When this was done
there was not much consolation in
it for her. Then the l»ooby was
presented to Mrs. Ewell. This was
a little green box profusely wrapped
and tied with "yt»l!er" ribbon. She
accepted it aud was told that it con
tained a penny. She said that
booby would be o treasured grain
in the snnds of time. All were so
lively that some of the girls cs.ked
the others if they would not favor
them with a few figures of the tur
key trot. The replv' was that it
was rather old or too new —it hnd
not got to colle'ge before they went,
or went after they left, but the
three girls on the sofa oat-laughed
all other girls.
Then came the hour for biddiug
the hostess good night and to wish
her mauy happy renrns of the last
day of the first month of every year
with thanks for such a royal enter
tainment. What a beautiful spirit
to look away from self for the joy
and pleasure of others!
