A recent attendnace contes

for the Philathea, and the Ba-

After a few minutes social chat
by a comfortable fire, they be-

grams. Small cards haxl been
prepared, each having a letter of
the nartie "Philathea" on theun.
They were turned .down, mixed
up' and the players were told
thai they must give the names
of flowem, vegetables, American
rivers, furniturre, etc. New spec-
imens of horticulture were in-
vented, while th* names of the
animals given would have made

A shriek was heard! What
was the matter! Some Baraca
had; discovered a large bunch of
mistletoe hanging up in the door,
and, had enticed some innocent
