Last Thursday evening 9 of the misses of this place gave a guess where and go there party to which 13 boys were invited. It was the business of the boys to guess where. The girls all assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.G. Rossiter, on Centre street and it was sometime before the boys got on to their job. When all had met the next thing was to take up the progressive part. At the home of each girl a course of refreshments had been prepared and when the course at the home of the 9th girl was disposed of all were full. The first home visited was Jennie Lindsley's, on Bluff street, where a course of fruit salad and nabiscos were served. The second home was M.C Andrews' where Miss Klara Andrews, a visitor, served sandwiched, pickles and celery. The third place was Leila DeMotte's home on East Third street, who gave a course of salad, pickles, wafers and lemonade. The next place was Katherine Carmichael's home, on Lincoln street, a half mile away. She served salmon salad, bread and butter and sandwiches. From there the party progressed to the home of Leila Smith, on Falls street, where the course was baked beans, pickles and lemonade. Next place was at the home of Mary and Lela Anderson. They served ice cream and cake. The last place was the home of Gertrude Etnire, where she and a cousin, Genevieve Bowlus, served the last course, consisting of pop corn, candy, nuts, and lemonade. It was a late hour when all returned to their respective homes. The boys were Jesse Lindsley, Chas. McCabe jr., Dan Anderson, Thos. Wolfe, Leo Stephens, Julius DeLancey, Robert Hanson, Conrad Hanson, Dale Stansbury, and Lawrence Etnire. John Van Reed, Byron Lighty, and Earl Hobart were invited, but the press of business compelled them to forego the pleasure of attending.
