Nebraska weather has been on its
good behavior this week. With the
memory of the long hot months of Bum
mer still fresh in our minds, and with a
vivid recollection of the cold, windy
weeks just passed, these "calm, mild
days" bring a peace of mind and body
not unmixed with surprise that such an
ideal condition can actually exist.
"Happy is the bride that the sun shines
on" is a familiar saying. "Happy is the
hostess that the sun shines on" is
equally true. There is an uncon

gathered together for social intercourse
and entertainment which is none the

"A Spinsters' Tea' was the wording
of the invitations issued for an original
entertainment recently given at a coun
try home near Brooklyn. A clever pen
and ink sketch of a cat formed the
heading of the invitations. The guests
were requested to appear at three
o'clock in the afternoon arrayed in the
traditional spinster costume, and each
was invited to tell a story of her court
ship and why her lover was rejected,
the one telling the best story being re
warded with a picture having a cat for
the subject. Many of the guests wore
curls and elaborate headdresses, with
quaint, old-fashioned jewelry, and all
carried reticules containing sprigs of
fennel and sweet-flag root or pepper
mint drops. Supper was served on a
long, old-fashioned mahogany table,
the menu including hot biscuits, cold
chicken, cookies, preserves and rich
fruit cake. Before leaving for home
the guests sang many sentimental bal
lads of olden timee, ending with "Auld

nesday afternoon, when a hundred and
twenty-five guests were delightfully
entertained by Mrs. Davis and Mrs.

Window." Two beautiful solos and an
encore were rendered by Miss Beesie

addition to any program. The beauti
ful sunshine within and without, the
magnificent entertainment furnished
