Ross Tate The Sign of the Watch Ford St., near City Hail There has been some local argument with regard to the origin of the word "Stag Party." Max Muller maintains that "Stag Tarty" is so called because each member must carry at it at least "two horns." More modern philogists, however, agree that it is so minted to distin- guish it from a "dear parly" al- though the former is probably the more expensive form of social enter- tainment. However the "Stag-. Tar- ty" of which this report would es- pecially is one given by Mr. onybeare at "lliverview" last Mori- lay evening whicK was undoubtedly us a "one sex" function, the sue- ess of the season. In the careless of the Western guest for nire and unalloyed delight it had the adies "afternoon bridges" and ev- "hen parties" beat-en to a.

High Finance, Engineering, Railways and Canals, n a word every uvocution and call- ing followed in our busy little city was ably represented. With the sanc- tion of the clergy, and the protec- tion of the police, and the patronage of the arts-, sciences, arid the learned professions, this very pleasant "Stag Tarty" could not have been other than a distinguished success. at 9.00 p. m. the guests commenced to arrive.

Jn view of his great popularity among the ladies the which was a handsome copy of "A Corner in was singularly appropriate.

Miller, of New York, .gave boardwalk promenaders an imaginary chill this morning when they" dashed into the surf on a wager of a box of candy made by a woman friend. The two were in the swimming pool of a casino when the wager was made.

This hn explained vas a capital male equivalent for ea. While it is invidious to make >spe- cial mention of the costumes of .hose present it is only just and air to Mr. Nourse to state en pass- ant that his get-up was a dandy toute ensemble au fait, fin de stecle, et pate dc fois gras (in several other words) quite beyond the powers of brutal Saxon to des- cribe. In. his patent leather trousers cut a la Hilton, billowy well boiled shirt bosom, (with a real cut glass front) waistcoat of1 plain white material surmounted by a dinner jacket of genuine Venetian, he was at once the envy and despair of every Beau Brummel present. His CJraecian brow and dome-like head (in which are solved so many of our fiscal problems) towered his three-inch collar as some lofty Alp rises from its foothills the sparse of its summit of the aspect of a noble mountain above "tirulxer-limit."

But this is another sto- ry and even a. more long-winded one. The evening wns brought to an abrupt close by a suggestion from un indiscreet guest that Mr. Hyde should tell History or "recite." Evci in their hurried departure however the guests fount! time to assure Mr. Conybeare Jn person and Mrs. Cony- beare (the Deo-e-x Kitchena of the oc- casion) by proxy, that they had had the time of thoir lives, and that though mixed-whist is always delight ful. the neat and undiluted article was not to be sneezed at. Speaking of sneezing, one guest is said- to Cardston, March largest gathering of the Sunday School Un- ion ever held at Oardston convened on Friday evening occasion being the farewell tu the retiring Stake superinteiuK-m of Sunday Schools] W.
