The Sampsons Surprised. j
' Tuesday evening the Sampson home
was the scene of a very enjoyable
surprise party but in this case the

instead of the hosts and hostesses.
The invitations simply stated that
those invited were to help surprise
the Sam sons and upon arriving at
the place of meeting, everyone denied
any knowledge of the affair, other
than having received an invitation
and upon arriving at the Sampson
home the mystery was still unsolevd
as the surirife there was apparently
very genuine. Later on, however, it
was discovered that Mr. and Mrs.
'Sampson had chosen this novel way of
snrjirisng their friends and entertain
