For Labor Day.
Vory Boon now the Ion* vacation

fun, as tho small daughter said when
her mother cruelly reminded her of
the approach of school days. And If
It had not boon for the selfsame small
daughter you would not have had

was "Polly" who thought and planned
it all and I am merely telling you
what she told me will take place In

where tho small daughter lives.
To make the day after Ubor day
more bearable to this child, who Is
fond of knowledge, but not fond of
school, the members of her family and
a few Intimate friends who know and
love the wee maid have planned a
school "shower." Here are aome of
the gifts to be presented In all sorts of
unusual ways. A very pretty little
alarm clock Is to be slipped Into her
room after she goes to sleep on La-
bor day night, sot at 6:30. This la
shower number one and Is to be ac-
companied by a funny note, saying how
the clock wishes to be a helper and
must be wound up every night in or-
der to start her right each morning.

sorts of necessaries In way of rubber
bands, erasers and delightful surprise
pencils which como In all sorts of fas-
cinating shapes—anything In shape of
* spade, a wee gun or a pistol may
turn out to be a pencil. On the back
of her chair will be new book straps,
also a bag for her books marked with
her Initials. A new bag for “Jacks"
and a cunning little watering pot,
which will turn out to be an ink bot-
tle, will be found among the par-
cels. Now that sewing Is taught,
"Polly" said she had found Just the
right kind of a bag with a basket bot-
tom which contained all the necessary
sewing accessories done in the sweet
Indian grass and that was to be her

to her needs, but all of you who have
small daughters or sons may plan
some sort of shower to make a more
festive day of school.

games, tennis, archery, boating, bath-
ing at high tide, then supper at seven
»nd an Informal dance afterwards.
The Invitations said from "four to
midnight." The favors are to be
symbolic of the sea.’ All sorts of
candy boxes In shape of fish, lobster,
carbs, clams and shells. Tho cem
terplece Is to be a miniature pond,
adged with moss, sand, and a lot of
little sailboats floating about. Hest of
all one of the girls Is to have her
engagement announced at this supper

are to be In shape of sea shells, deli-
cately colored, pink and whlto, and the
Ices are to be froxen ship shape with

ored twain. This affair will bring the
parting of the ways to a very happy
