a happy social event.
Shakespeare once said "All things
that are, are with more pleasure
chased than enjoyed;" however,
the entertainment in the home of
Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Hawkins on
Wednesday evening, June 16, was a
marked exception to this rule of the
"Sage of Old."
Mrs. Hawkins opened her doors
at this time to the members of the
Priscilla Club, their husbands and
sweethearts, and about fifty in num-
ber responded to the invitation.
The Hawkins home is a newly com-
pleted edifice and one of the most
beautiful in all of Hereford. On this
occasion it was decorated with La
France roses and palms, and with its
brilliant illumination presented a
very attractive appearance. In the
first part of the evening, little con-
tests and games were indulged in,
one of the most interesting being a
flower contest. How all wished they
could remember the names of the
flowers their good old grandmothers
used to plant. After this came the
classic "42",and many proved them
selves adepts in this game. In the
interstice that followed, brick ice-
cream and cake was served. Then
after an hour of social intercourse
and little pleasantries passed from
one to another, the guests bade Mr.
and Mrs. Hawkins a kindly good-
night, and returned to their respec-
tive homes, each feeling that it was
good to have been there, and that
each and all had gathered up some
of "Life's Lost Blossoms.
country. The wind was also too
constant and oftentimes too terrific
to suit those who are lately from
the states where gentle zephyrs play
among the leaves and the mosquito
sings a constant lullaby. However,
one lady was present who liked even
the wind of the Plains.
In all the hou r was both pleasant-
ly and profitably spent.
a children's party.
Mrs. Alice Lea entertained for
her little daughter, Annie Wildy,
on Monday afternoon from 5 to 6.
There were nine little girls and
three little boys to make merry on
this occasion. A number of games
were played and from the merry
laughter and childish enthusiasm,
the passer-by was convinced that
fun and frolic bad run riot.
Dainty cream and cake were
served to these happy children.
Those present were Elizabeth Harp,
Lula Belle Foster, Grace Furgurson,
Ruth and Esthur Fox, Bernice Fos-
ter, Effie and Belle Hendricks, Annie
Wildy Lea, Charles Dodson, Ster-
ling Hendrix and Davis Elliott.
a church social.
Division 6 of the Ladies Aid of
the Christain Church gave a social
on Tuesday afternoon from 4 to 7
at the home of Mrs. Clarence
Wheeler. Quite a number of ladies
were present, and for a time the
greeting of friends and conversation
were enjoyed by all. A recitation.
"The Missionary's Visit" by little
Lora Kibbe caused much laughter
and, at the same time, impressed a
truth. The feature of entertain-
ment however, that elicited the
greatest enthusiasm and real feeling
was the answer to roll call by giv-
ing native state, why they came to
Texas or to the Panhandle, the first
impression and some needs in this
particular section. There were ten
native Texans, three from Kentucky,
one from each of the following
states; Illinois, Indiana, South Car-
olina, New York and Minnesota;
two from Missouri, and two from
Iowa. The responses were all good,
some being rather unique while
others laid at our doors certain
faults or short comings which are of
vital importance. Truly "From the
fullness of the heart the mouth
speaketh." The Junior Superinten-
dent thought mothers should take
more interest in|the Junior work.
One of the high school teachers
spoke very feelingly of the great
need of more visiting in city schools
by patrons and friends, closer fel-
lowship between patrons and teach-
•rs, and civic improvement of
grounds. All were agreed that
■tore trees would add greatly both
to the comfort and appearance of the
At their pleasant home in north-
east Hereford Mr. and Mrs. J. N.
Russell celebrated their 4th anni-
versary by inviting a number of
friends to play progressive "42."
The spacious rooms of the Russell
home were brilliantly lighted with
wax tapers and the scene presented
was cozy and restful in appearance.
Score cards were presented to the
guests by Margurett, the little
daughter of the home, with a sweet
child-like grace. A number of in-
teresting games were played when
at the end Mrs. P. W. Price proved
herself an adept at playing and was
awarded a souvenir spoon as a prize.
Refreshments were served at the
tables. Miss Erma Gougn assisted
the hostess in serving. The guests
after bidding their host and hostess
good night and wishing them many
happy returns of their wedding day
took their departure. Those pres-
ent were: Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Bar-
ker, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Barcus,
Mr. and Mrs. P. W. Price, Dr. and
Mrs. Biscoe, Dr. and Mrs. Estock,

AT THE ELLIOTT HOME.
At the beautiful new home of Mrs.
A. C. Elliott on Saturday afternoon,
June 19, Mesdames Elliott and C.
W. Dodson entertained about fifty
Heretord ladies in the most pleasing
manner. The guests on arriving
; were cordially received by the hos-
; tesses and after a few words of pleas-
ant greeting were invited into the
J dining room, where fruit punch was
| served by Misses Hendricks and
Vaughn. Mrs. Parker most gra-
ciously assisted the hostess by seat-
ing the guests at the several tables
when a progressive game of "42"
was begun. Salted almonds were
served at the tables from cut glass
nappiers. Mrs. Lee Clark added
to the pleasure of the afternoon
greatly by her musical selections,
both vocal and instrumental and the
violin solo which was nicely render-
ed by little Miss Edna Elliott was
highly appreciated. Mrs. Parker al-
so rendered a pleasing number,
which was greatly enjoyed by every
one present. The receiving
rooms were tastely decorated in cut
flowers and pot plants, presenting a
suggestive picture of the June sea-
son. Five games of "42" were
played and Mrs. Thompson being
fortunate enough to win each game
received a beautiful hat pin as a re-
ward. After the game, dainty re-
freshments of ice cream and angel
food cake were served. The ladies
present were: Mesdames. Hal

Wheat Harvest Begins.
The first to begin the harvest of
wheat in the county this year was J.
W. Robinson. On Tuesday of this
week, the machines entered his field
and the first golden sheaves were
brought in. C. F. Gallagher in the
same neighborhood began on Wed-
nesday. Both of these farmers will
make an average yield. The berry
is extra fine.
Another farmer, Wm. Linnville,
in the western part of the county
will begin next Monday cutting 400
acres. He will use two headers and
four big barges, the latter to delive
the whoat to a steam thresher. It
will require 20 mules and the engine
to do the work and a large force of
men. The grain will be cut,
threshed and hauled to market with-
in fourteen days time. The road
engine will be used for the hauling
and 1,000 bushels will be brought in
at each trip, using four modern trail

Mesdames Dodson and Elliott who
are keeping their hearts young by
participating in the pleasures of not
only their own friends, but by keep-
ing in touch with the young people
of the city generally, threw open
the doers again on the evening of June
19 to a large mumber of young
ladies and gentlemen. The evening
party was given as a compliment to
Misses Willia Elliott of Waco and
Irma Gough of Hereford. The
decorations and refreshments were
the same as in the afternoon. An in-
teresting game of "42" was engag-
ed in till a late hour. Music fur-
nished by several of the young
ladies present contributed to the
pleasure of the guests and make the
evening one long to be remembered
by those present.
