Hints For Hostess
Suggestions for Entertainments, and
Other Matters of Moment, Edit-
ed by Madame Merri
The 8weet Girl Graduate.
This 1b the season when the "sweet
girl graduate" comes into her own.
Nearly all of ray letters for several
weeks past have been from either Ju-
nnlors or the "grave and reverend se-
niors" who are filled with anxiety as
to the proper thing to do, and the
Juniors are so nnxious to do them-
selves proud in the preliminary enter-
tainments for the graduating class.
Next to the wedding day there is no
more important occasion than per-
haps the day the bud makes her bow
to society, and not all girls do that;
most of them, however, are pretty
sure to graduate and marry. In this
age of elaborate entertainments those
for the young woman Just leaving the
schoolroom have their full quota of
elegance. At a recent affair given for
the graduating class of a fashionable
school the centerpiece was a silver
basket filled with pink moss; instead
of a real silver receptacle, a basket
gilded or silvered would be equally
as effective. Candles of pink with
silver shades and place cards cut and
tinted in exact rose shades added
much to this color de rose table The
nut holders carried out the same idea,
for they were tiny pink roses, the pa-
per cases being inclosed In silken rose
petals. The Ice cream was In shape
of pink roses with stem und leaves of
green candy. At each place was a
long stemmed rose, to which was tied
a small pink bag of satin which con-
tained the graduate hostess' gift to her
classmates — lovely amethyst pins.
Graduation presents are now upper-
most in every one's mind, and belt
pins, h*t pins, bracelets and collar
pins are all safe purchases set with
semiprecious stones, and any girl
would be delighted with a bit of real
Irish lace In form of stock, collar or
Pertaining to Children.
The correspondent who wished a
fitting prayer and several quotations
may find the ones given below to her
A CHILD'8 FIRST PRAYER,
.leans, tender Shepherd, hear me,
Bless thy little lamb tonight.
Through the darkness he thou near me.
Keep me safe 'till morning light. Amen.
Childhood. That spring of spring*'
'TIs surely one of the blesaedest things
That nature ever invented. —Hood.
In order to manage children well, we
muBt borrow their eyes and their hearts,
see and feel as they do. nnd Judge them
from their own point of view. I pray
Qod to make parents reasonable.
Suggestions From a "Reader."
Dear Mme. Merri: In return for
the benefit and pleasure 1 have derived
from your department I am sending
you these suggestions for entertain-
ment In the musical line.
The first is "Musical State Coach."
Each person is assigned a musical
term, then the following story is read,
bringing in the terms, each person ri
sing and turning about as his word Is
mentioned. A failure to do so re-
quires the payment of a forfeit, which
is only redeemed by playing a piece
on the piano. Here Is the story:
"Carl's grandpa was an old major. He
was also a miner (minor) by* irade.
He went to the store to see (C) If
there might be (B) something nice
there for Christmas gifts for Carl. He
carried a staff, as he was an old man,
and had to stop to rest often nnd It an
against a fence or bars. When he got
to the store he bought a tie for Carl.
He told the merchant to measure off
some ribbons for lines to play horse
with. He told him to add some bars
of peanut candy and to weigh on hi?
scales a pound of caramels. He bought
a top that would turn very rapidly
when wound with a key. A very
sharp knife, some little miner's tools,
a lot of soldiers with captain and ma-
jor, a flat sack to hold his school
books, a book containing rhymes for
Carl to repeat. The boy will be (B)
happy,' he said. 'I've heard hlra say
and I've taken note of it a score of
times that he wanted Just these
things.' He was surprised that the
price was ho low (solo), and gave his
signature to a note In payment."
