A Child's Party
The attractive home of Mrs. E. A.
Osborne will be the scene of a beau
tiful little party this afternoon, the
occasion being in honor of the sev seventh
enth seventh .birthday of Mrs. Osborne's small
niece, dainty little Flora McKay.
Mrs. Osborne has. invited fourteen
little friends to help in the celebra
tion of this happy event.
If the weather permits, games will
be played on the lawn, otherwise the
large porches will be utilized and
have been arranged most attractively
for this purpose.
The crowning surprise for the dear
little guests will be when they arti
ushered into the dining room, where
a beautiful color motif of yellow and
green has been artistically observed
in detail. The dining table is most
exquisitely arranged with yellow
candles, which Flora herself will
light at the proper moment, and
"black-eyed Susans." A charming
feature of the pretty decorations will
be that the table laid with a Cluny
cloth is set entirely in a child's serv serving
ing serving set, with small punch bowl, wai waiter
ter waiter set and tea set to match. The
central arrangement of the table is
most beautiful, in full blown roses.
The favors are Japanese savings
banks. Black-eyed Susans are painted
on the banks, and the words "Flora
McKay, 1911-1918," printed in golden
letters on the back of the banks. One
bank will be given to each child.
As the party assembles at the table
it will indeed be a happy one, and the
delicious cake and ices in yellow will
be the crowning event which will
leave nothing for these childish
hearts to desire.
One-half cup of corn meal, one cup
of boiling water, one desertspoon of
butter, one-half teaspoonful of salt,
one-half cup of sweet milk, one egg.
