Costumes of the Visitors Make Their Identity Hard to Guess The
Evening is Spent in Games and Music.
A number of the friends of Mr.'
iud Mrs. L. E. Schaulis last evening
- 1 ' I . U i' M 11'.. -V,!..

surprise- which waa a complete sue-i-ess
in every respect. So carefully
had the plana for the gathering been
laid that the host and hostess were
genuinely surprised and considerably
embarrassed by the event..
The good friends gathered at the
rooms of Mr. and Mrs. J. V. Hatt,
over M. Fanger's store and just across
the hall from the rooms occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Schaulis and at the
phsycological moment they descend
ed in a body upon Mr. and Mrs.
Schaulis. The affair was rendered
the more delightful by reason of the
fact that the parties were all en mas
que and when the host and hostess
opened the door to see who the in
vaders were, they found themselves
considerably puzzled to distinguish
The evenlng'B program opened
with the host and hostess being re
quired to guess the identity of the
several characters and . this occa
sioned a great deal of fun as it was
a difficult task taken generally. One
or ,two of the characters were easily
placed but it was some time before
Mrs. Schaulis could locate the re
mainder to a certainty, and a great
deal of good natured railery at her
expense waa the result.
After the visitors had unmasked a
number of highly amusing games
were played, many of them exceeding
ly unique and out of the ordinary.
Among them waa one in which a
number of advertisements were cut
from the magazines and the names
of the parties advertising erased or
cut off, the guests being required to
name the advertisers. Out of sixteen
different selections Messrs. George B.
Mann and John V. Hatt tied with a
correct guess on thirteen. Another in
teresting and amusing game was to
guess the number of cranberries in
a certain measure. Mrs. John V.
Hatt carried off the honors in this,
. she guessing the number at 675 when
the count showed 673 a remarkably
" Another very pleasant pastime in
cluded the drawing of partners and
the stringing of cranberries on a
thread.' For the drawing of part
ners small red cardboard hatchets,
the work of some of the talented la
dies of the party, were passed about,
-fich hatchet being numbered and the
numbers Indicating the partners. A
thread with a needle at each end
was then passed to the partners and
each Btrung cranberries on the thread,
the berries meeting at the center
between the partners. This made a
highly amusing and pleasing pastime.
. Progressive dominoes then took the
. boards and the remainder or tne
evening before luncheon was served,
was passed In this manner. In each
of these games credits were given
the parties and each cerdit included a
nick in the hatchet's edge, making it
a "woman's hatchet" as one of the
male folks described it. The king
prize which was a handsomely de
'corated hatchet, was carried off by
A. E. Quinn while the booby prize, a

At the conclusions of the games
luncheon was served and a bountiful
repast was had. The place cards for
this were handsome cnes, being red
cardboards with n hand painted
bunch of cherries in the center. The
luncheon was a veritable feast and
all the available good things of the
season were upon the table. 1
After the luncheon there were a
number of instrumental selections
given and it was quite late before
the merry party broke up for the
night after having spent what they
consider the most delightful of a long
series of delightful events.
Those attending included Mr. and
Mrs. G. B. Gould, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Gobelman, Mr. and Mrs. J. V. Hatt,
Miss Genevieve Howard, Miss Pearl
Nichols, Miss Mae Patterson, Mr. R.
B. Hayes, Mr. George B. Mann, Mr.
A. E. Quinn. . t
It may be remarked In connection
with this party that the costumes in
fhich the members had arrayed them
selves were very handsome and at
tractive. Mrs. G. B. Gould waa very
charming as a colonial dame with
her powdered wig and a handsome
costume of cream colored material.
Mrs. Frank Gobelman had an ele
gant costume representing an Indian
maiden with beadwork and feathers.
She was also arrayed in a Navojo
blanket of striking pattern and beau
ty and had a necklace of Indian man
ufacture which was exceedingly hand
Mrs. Hatt had dressed as a young
negress and her makeup was a splen

of considerable expense.
Miss Howard was in mask also and
had on a very handsome costume.
Miss Nichols represent a rag doll
and was a perfect caricature of this
childhood's plaything. She made a
distinct hit in her impersonation.
Miss Patterson took the part cf a
little girl and her small physique
admirably suited the role she essay
ed. She was also 'quite Jiandsomely
Mr. Gould who appeared in the
character of Sophronla Arabella Ball
ey, "had made up splendidly and his
appearance excited much merriment.
Mr. Hatt dressed as a fish peddler
and made a fine representation of
the character, the makeup being true
to life in every way.
Mr. Hayes, as Charlott Cordelia
Johnsing, was another long, slim ne
gro woman who evoked roars of
laughter by the comical aspect of his
coBtume and he played the part to
perfection in addition.
Mr. Mann represented Easy Daw
son and in that character he scored a
distinct and brilliant success. His
makeup waft ideal and won much no'
Mr. Quinn made an ideal Buffalo
Bill, his costume being a remarkably
handsome one and the makeup to go
with it being superb. He was con

of the evening.

Wednesday afternoon while a crew
was working sawing wood on the
Freeman farm east of town Floyd
Saxon had his left hand multilated
by the bursting of the saw, and he is
very fortunate In not being more
seriously injured. Floyd was in the
act of feeding some wood to the ma
chine, when the saw went to pieces
and struck his hand. He and his
companions realized the serious na
ture of the wound and hastened to
town for medical aid. Floyd was
brought to the office of Dr. Hoops,
who called Dr. Barrltt to assist. They
found that the Index finger was at
most entirely torn off and the hand

THE IIIIE TEST

The hardest test is the best of time,
and Doun's KiJn.y Pills have stood it
well in Plattsmouth. Kidney suffer
ers can hardly ask for stronger proof
than the following:
J. B. ratridge, Eighth St., Platts.
nnuth. Neb., says: "I suffered al
most constantly from pains across my
loins and kidneys and on several oc
casions I was so badly crippled that 1
could not get about with the aid of
two canes. The use of the first box
of Doan's Kidney Pills procured from
Gerlng & Co.'s drug store helped me
so greatly that I continued taking the
remedy until I was entirely relieved.
It would be Impossible for me to
speak to highly of Doan's Kidney
The above statement was given in
June 1906 and on Dec. 29, 1908, Mr.
Patridge said: "I still recommend

some cases of croup, even the length
of time It takes to go for a doctor

been in the city for several days en
deavoring to get a class of Initiates

tended by Paul D. Harm, grand re
gent of the order, and H. Lancaster,
deputy grand regent, who advised
with the members present on the best
way to promote the good of the order.

a good start. The following officers

Brief Vlnlt to Parents.
I. J. (Jim) Hall came in laBt even
ing on train No. 14 on the Burling
ton for an over night's visit with
his parents, Dr. and Mrs. J. H. Hall.
Mr. Hall is now the division store
keeper for the Missouri Pacific with
headquarters at Atchison, Kas. This
is one of the largest storehouses on
the Missouri Pacific system and has
jurisdiction over the lines In Kansas,
Nebraska and Missouri. Mr. Hall has
a very large force of employes under
him and is kept constantly on the go
In looking after the details of his
position. For a man of his years he
has had a remarkably rapid rise in
the railroad world and is considered
one of the ablest young men connect
ed with the storekeeping department
of any of the big railroad systems. It
is a matter of great local pride to
point to young men like Mr. Hall
who are genuine Plattsmouth pro
ducts and who have demonstrated
their capabilities In so signal a man
ner. Mr. Hall expected to leave for
Lincoln today where he has some
Inspection of stock to attend to and
probably will get to his headquarters
at Atchison during the last of the
week for a few days before he will
be called out on some other branch
of the road.
