Mrs. Grimison ot Schuyler, reports
The regular meeting of the Woman'a
club was held at the residence of Mn.

discussion over the question : "Resolved

influence over the affain of the nation
than John Adams."

ception was held at the residence or Mr. '
and Mrs. J. A. Grimicon in commemora

ganization of the club, the husbands of
the membere having been invited to par
ticipate. The hostess was assisted by
Mesdames G. F. Burkett, G. H. Wella
and C. J. Phelps. A new kind of amuse
ment was tried with success. Each
guest being provided with a dainty card
and pencil attached, bearing on the title
Oh that my tongue could utter
The thoughts that arise in me,
was requested to write an original rhyme,
pun or conundrum, after which they
were taken up and redistributed and
the results read aloud. Some were
beautiful expressions or thought, more
rediculous and nonsensical, yet it fur
nished a great deal of fun. Piano solos
were given during the evening by Misses
Margaret Grimison, Clara! Wells and
Louise Phelps. Delicate refreshmentB
were served and a most enjoyable eve
ning was spent. Had the ladies permit
ted it, the gentlemen, with one accord
would have tendered their names for
memberehin in the club, sioiply for the
privilege of enjoying such an evening
annually with the members or the
Scnuyler Woman's Club.
