The hat social given at Weinhard 's
hall last Saturday night by the lading of
the Episcopal church, was a novel and
successful affair. In fact, it was the hit
of the saason in the way of entertain
ment. The way in which the embryo
men milliners trimmed hats outof the raw
material was a caution. When the con
teat was ended, after the grotesque grand
march was executed and the critical in
spection of the judges in the grand stand
was a thing of the past, the display of
female headgear would hare been a
creditable display in the window of a
