A Birthday Party.

One of These "Girls" Aged 80.

A very enjoyable gathering occurred at the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs, A. W. Neihart Tuesday afternoon, Feb 28.

The occassion was to congratulate the mother of Mrs. Neihart, Mrs. Louisa Hollenbeck, on passing the 77th birthday of her long life. It was a great surprise to Mrs. Hollenbeck as she was bidden to come spend the afternoon with her daughter, to find thirteen, --not an unlucky number for the dear lady said to these friends, "I make the fourteenth." Looking into the faces of these ladies you would not have said, "They are on the shady side of life," but the sunny slope. Each one was in her best "bib and tucker" with smiling faces for the occasion, and our best manners, as our good mothers of long ago had taught us, each one paying our best respects to Mrs. Hollenbeck, whom we had come to honor. Sure you would not have called us old, one at least had seen 80 summers, others all the way back to 60 years or less. Mr. Neihart our host, is a good judge and he called us "girls." Mrs. Hollenbeck was presented with several pretty presents, and a shower of birthday cards from friends both in and out of town. After a pleasant chat of an hour Mr. Neihart came up stairs saying, "Now girls get ready to have your pictures taken." Setting down his camera, he proceeded to arrange the finest group with which Elmwood has been honored for a long time. Of course Mrs. Hollenbeck occupied the center seated in a big chair, friends to the right of her and friends to the left of her, a group of friends behind her.

We all felt honored to be there. After this we were called to Mrs. Neihart's pretty sunny dining room where a festive picture met our eyes. Long red and white festoons from the chandelier down to the corners of table where they were held with large white chrysanthemums. The centre piece was an immense frosted cake, with a red and white bouquet of flowers, surrounded by seventy-seven red wax candles, burning with great brilliancy. The pretty white linen cloth ornamented with red and white Japanese napkins, unique little cut glass dishes of jellies, pickles, even to the customary after dinner mints, were all in evidence.

When we were all seated, and grace reverently said, dinner was brought in. It is scarce necessary to speak of the quality of the dinner, for Elmwood is famed for good dinners and fine cooks with whom Mrs. Neihart takes a high place. A pleasant little token was given each guest before they left the table in the form of a fresh Japanese napkin on which Mrs. Hollenbeck wrote her name. So ended this pleasant gathering, the ladies present being Mesdames Hollenbeck, Alton, Buster, Earnst, Hall, Royer, Woodard, Lefler, Bailey, Sarah Hall, Peck, Hylton, Swarts, Hobbs

Boys and girls have grown to be men and women, the older ones have passed away, and in fact Elmwood has changed so she hardly recognizes the place. She says Lester sends regards to all inquiring friends.
