Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETH6RIOQt, ALT A., SATURDAY, MAY 16, I90fl. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL A deliciously dainty chocolate confection indescribably inviting and toothsome. Like all of Cowan's specialties, of superlative excellence. The uanie "Cowan" stamped on every bud. TKc Cowan Co. Limited, Toronto. From a Western Window Ballade of the Vernal Season gentle spring is here, I trow, So to the woods we'll wend our way Where violets and lilies grow, And daffodils in bright array With primroses are blooming gay, And tulips, too, in varied hues. ..-Sweet nature calls. Come quickly, pray, But don't forget your overshoes. "We'll listen to the brooklet's flow. We'll hear the little linnet's lay, 'The modest mavis lilting low, The chatter of the brawling jay, While distant on a noding spray, _ His mournful note c'os. We'll make of this a holiday, But don't forget your overshoes. We've sen the last of sleet and snow (I'm certain, quite) and heavens gray; We feel the southern breezes blow, The sun sends'out a heated ray; I am convinced that it will stay Like bet, nor fear to lose; 'The doubting one would have to pay, But don't forget your overshoes.

News Up in Edmonton they are having the gayest kind of a merrymaking for three days in the form of a hospital lair. While it was in progress the whole city seemed given up to it, and was taken posession of by crowds of merry participants. Sober business was put to one side, and the cars and streets were enlivened by groups of flower girls, squaws, Japs, Dolly Var- classic Greeks, and quaint Katie Greenaways. All who could beg or borrow a few dollars wherewith to cross the palms of the fair keep- "The main idea was to get rid of your loose cnange and get out. "We struck a doll stand, but be- ing no judge of dolls, went on: The next was an old time book stall, a real work of art, with our grandmoth- ers and our relations looking after it, a most finished picture. Then we drifted farther, landed opposite a stall with a stork as an emblem, the whole was very charming. We pon- dered a while and then saw the drift. But it being no place for bachelors just blushed a little and pushed far- ther down the trail. "Not wishing to break the camera, we declined the invitation to be pho- tographed. Then we stumbled on a bowery of flowers, doing a rushing business, became decorated with a rose and passed on again refreshed. "In the corner was a very smart tea garden, presided over by charm- ing women, Japanese all in charac- ter. Would like to" have explored but it all cost money. On beyond was a fish pond, which we didn't try, but had the lady who was baiting the hook climhed on herself, we could have given a mighty heave to try and land the fish. Mrs.C.H.N, Connell will receive for tho first her marriage in her new home on Dufferin. St., near Westminster Road, on Tuesday after- noon and evening next. On Monday afternoon Mrs. R. F. 1Reeve received with her guest Mrs. Casey of Macleod, and a great many callers were glad to pay their res- pects to the popular visitor. Mrs. Reeve looked very well uideed in a gown of champagne shade, and Mrs. Casey was in black. In the den Mrs, P. L. Naismith dispensed tea, and Miss Audi-city Neale did the honors in looking after the visitors who came in flocks all afternoon. "Fortified for emergencies, looked in at the gypsy's tent. he If there are any more gypsies of this des- cription we hope they'll come to Ed- monton. We admired the tout en- semble of the box tent and passed on to the lingerie. Nothing in our line, but it suggested just a passing wish that one might have born a girl. "There was a dark and mysterious place near the entrance. Some said it was a Turkish harem. In this case we refer you to last week's issue, re the lure of the Orient, and like the Quaker to the Pirate said to our- selves "Friend thee no business here" "Compare this with J85 about this time partner, and ponder." j of the booths were there, and j jusfc If you are tired of remarks on hats judging from the receipts, quite a h_ Jt to do with two stories which came from i Toronto and are backed bv a reput- again say hard times in Al- n fterta! The monev taken On Monday evening "The Senate" gave their, last dance of the season in Oliver's Hall, and many regrets that these dances are over were heard. The Orpheus Orchestra furnished the music which was very good. The com mittee in charge of the dance was Miss Woods, Miss Agnes O'Hagen, Mr. R. R. Davidson, and Mr. J. Dawson. Tuesday afternoon was one of the stormiest we have had this spring, but it did not serve 'to frighten guests from Mrs. Shaw's tea on Tues- day afternoon and all afternoon cabs drove up to "Shawsden" and then back again to town for other guests. The snow and rain were dreary enough out doors but Mrs. Shaw's cosy rooms were crowded all after- this was one of the most informal and pleasant teas of the season. Mrs. Shaw wore a black satin prin- ces gown. Mrs. Horace Bowman in crimson silk and Tuscan hat served the ices and Mrs. E. H. Wilson in green satin gown with hat to matc-li poured the tea for the forty guests who 'came through the afternoon. The tea table was' centred with carnations.
