An Outdoor Birthday Party.
t How children do love parties, birth
day parties especially, and every
,chlld Is entitled to one day out of the
year for his or her very own, and of
course this Is the natal day. I won
der If mothers realize they are mak-
ing history and how very short the
'time will be when these wee tots will
be saying: "When I was little we did
so and so." I am reminded of an eld
erly woman who always counts back
to her sixth birthday and the sake
which she chose for the occasion was
"roll Jelly." The young mother was
not an expert cook but she had prom-
ised the child Hhe would chose tn«
kind of cake she wanted, and. let ine
add. she made it, and it was glorious
4n the child's eyes and has gone down
Into the annals of a happy life with
many a birthday cake and a party.
Remember, children are the most
satisfactory of all guests, the very
fact of dressing and going to a party
and bringing home the spoils Is bliss.
Provide little baskets of dainty tissue
paper bags in which to put the favorB
and candles, and even the cake, for
some kiddles love to take samples
Now for the party. We will need
a lawn, some trees and a big porch
and then with these accessories there
must be a big bowl of lemonade on
hand under a Japanese umbrella, the
stake or handle being driven Into the
ground. Children are always thirsty
and this will prevent them from run-
ning into the house for a drink every
five minutes. Hide animal crackers
over the grounds and tell the guests
there is a whole menagerie hidden un-
der the bushes, in the grass and even
In the benches of the trees; give oach
one a paper bag In which to put the
game and give a little prize to the
one who finds the most. A small flag
may be hidden and that will make an
other hunt, the gay little "stars and
.stripes" being pinned on the lucky
Tho "eats" will be the climax of the
party and the cake should be lighted
with due ceremony and the children
allowed to blow out the candles. Cun-
ning favors are made by sticking ani-
mal crackers together with Icing, and
.thus made they will stand upright at
each plate. Delicious small cookies
imay be ornamented with daisies made
'from blanched almonds, the stem and
.leaves of angelica! fasten them on
Snapping motto caps always give
pleasure and sometimes the Chrlst-
Imas tree sparkles are obtainable at
'this season and they are lovely set to
igoing outdoors and are not harmful.
Ice cream may be served in orange
'halves, thus making baskets with
smilax for handles. Orange ice is very
good served this way and is not so
|rich as ice cream. The party sta-
tionery that comes for parties is a
Joy to use for the invitations and the
"8unbonnet" baby cards are attrac-
tive also. The "five and ten" cent
store will furnish any number of trifles j
for a fish pond if one cares for tbi* >
or for a grab bag, or better still, f *r .
a "fairy tree." Tie the parcels onto
the low branches and let each child j
clip off one with a pair of scissors j
Anything that makes for mystery i*
an adjunct to a child's party.
Children and even grownups enjoy
sfterdlnner tricks and 1 give these
Just as they came to me. They ar* all
to be performed with candles. I have
not had time to try them. Perhaps
some of you will be kind enough to
write me If they are any good. You
could use them as an adjunct to a
bazar, performing them in a separate
booth with curtains hung at the door
to glv# an air of mystery, and charge
a penny to get In. Of course, this is
all to be done by young people, as It
Is within their possibilities.
Put a nail In the end of a candle and
set it all In a glass filled with water
The nail will steady the candle, which
will burn until nothing remains, al-
ways rising above the surface of the
water by reason of the decrease in
Take a small picture cut from a pa
per or book, and wrap it tightly
around a candle. Light a match or
another candle and hold the flame
near until the paper becomes trans-
parent. I'nwrap the paper, and every
one will be astonished to find the pic
ture printed on the candle.
Put a candle unllghted in a basin
of water. Let several try to take It
out with their mouths, not touching
the candle with their hands. Every
one will fall. Then you put your faco
In the water, and. when your mouth Is
near the end of the candle, draw In a
deep breath, and the suction of the
water will draw the candle into your
Allow some drops from a lighted
randle to fall into a basin of cold wa-
ter. This grease will form flowers.
String these on a wire with green
leaves made from paper, and an in-
teresting plant will be the result.
Heat a piece of wire and stick it
crosswise through the middle of a
candle. Make a wick at both ends.
Balance the candle on two tumblers.
Light the wicks, and the dropping
of the candle grease will make the
candle seesaw, faster and faster as
the flame grows hotter. Thlc is a
Pastimes For Outdoor Parties.
Did you every try "Blowing the
Cone?" The youngsters will love It
Make a large cone of stiff paper and
slip it on a string stretched between
two trees about three feet from the
Give each child a try to see If by
blowing Into the large end of the
cone they can send It across the
string. The art Is to see who can
send it over with the fewest "blows."
Another very good amusement Is to
tie a knot In a clothes line and stretch
It conveniently high between two
trees or posts, blindfold each child in
turn and give him three clothes pins.
Then see who can come the nearest
the knot. Each pin la marked with
the player's number; for Instance,
three will be marked "1," three "2,"
etc. This gives each one three trials
If the party Is a large one it will be
best to let each child have Just one
pin and instead of numbering the
clothespins could have colored ribbons
tied to them, each child to remember
his or her color.
MRS. JOHN K. SHIELD*
Mrs. John K. Shields, wife of th«
new senator from Tennessee, is th#
bride of the senatorial circle. Sht

Still Hunting For Gold.

part of the Wichita mountain region,

practical commercial method for treat-
ing this ore has been discovered.
