Although there are practically three
parties, the "regular" republicans, the
"insurgent" republicans and the
democrats, there 'again are signs on
every .hand that President Taft by
steering his characteristic "middle of
the read" course is daily gaining sup
porters for his. legislative program.
The skill shown by the president
in avoiding clashes with either fac
tion of the ruling party and the knack
he has exhibited in compelling the
aid of both in his fight for the re
demption of party pledges has notice
ably impressed the democratic minor

measures while the house has sup

Hints For Hostess
for Those Planning Seasonable
A Wonder-Ball Party. '
This was a rainbow and wonder
ball party combined and it was a
most delightful affair. There were
seven guests, all people who knew
how to knit, and in this age with the
revival of many of the lost arts4 (knit
ting among them) many young maids
and matrons know how to wield the
needles in an expert manner. The
hostess produced balls, one of each
Df the rainbow colors, the guests tak
ing one from the pretty bas"ket passed
by the little daughter of the house.
The object to be started was optional
a pair of mittens Tor a small child,
a scarf, a wee sweater, a pair of
knee pads; all these were commenced.
As the knitting progressed, little fa
vors were unwound. The first one
was awarded a lovely box of home
made candy, the one who found her
treasures the last had a home-made
cake; beautifully iced.
This party was given for friends
who did not play cards and cost no
more than the average card party.
The refreshment table was especially
pretty; at each cover there was a
"tripod made of steel knitting needles
from which was suspended a wee
brass kettle (doll size) filled with
salted almonds. A chafing dish was
used for creamed chicken and mush
