Story of a "Stormy" Night.
There are some kinds of showers
ncuinst which rain-coats, umbrellas,
or even . shingle roof are no pro
tection. Mr. nnd Mrs. Clifford Smith,
the newly wedded couple residing near
the south end of Hayter street, were
enufrht in such a shower on last Mon
day evening. The home of Mr. and
Mrs. F. R. Smith, parents of the
aroom. constituted the storm center
of this extraordinary shower. About
8:30 p. m. the young couple were
treacherously enticed to leave the
shiHcr and warmth of their own cozy
home, and crossing the paternal
thrcshhold found themselves in the
midst of a cloud-bank of laughing
neighbors and friends who proceeded
to shower them with a great variety
of articles essential to good house
keeping, ranging from a table and
copper boiler to dainty china and sil
verware. Mrs. Rhoda Lynn was mistress of
ceremonies and in a brief address
showered words of wisdom in the ears
of the bachelors present as she prais
ed the step which Mr. Smith had tak
en in providing himself with n wife,
and pointed out- to them the fact
tlir-t the magic touch of a woman's
hand is one of the chief essentials iu
the creation of a home.
The patter of this second shower
had no sooner censed than an "Ore
gon mist," consisting of ice cream
served on quartered cantaloupes with
cake, drifted nil through the house
and settled upon beautifully flowered
napkins spread upon the laps of the
guests. Webfooters are partial to
mist, they simply dote on it. All
present were of the aforesaid tribe
and the mist was quickly dissolved
as the result of the warm welcome
