It is not easy fi.r the social secretary and the force of clerks who handle the invitations to discriminate. Failure to be invited to at least one reception ma y, not be fatal to social aspirations but it is something to be avoided by those who make at least a pretension to social prominence. Invitations, if anything, are not so easy to obtain as thev used to be.

It is said that one president lor.g since dead, solved the problem by standing in front of a velvet curtain, through a slit in which a relay of aides stretched their hands under the president's right arm. and, as the visitors crushed the hands of Cue aide's the president bowed and smiled appropriately' and kept his own right hand unharmed. o DRISCOLL, NORTHWESTERN STAR, INELIGIBLE, REPORT The. entertainment is an old Mexican custom whicn they have handed down for generations. It is know as tne ' Pinata." For nine davs before Christmas a huge bag is decorated with div ers colors and is hung up in the ceiling A. baseball bat is given to one in the party who is blindfolded. Then the referee takes the batter, walks him in an opposite direction and whirls him several times till a famt touch of dizziness comes over him. then allows him to march forward, that is if he can tind his surroundings, to swat the bag. The Pinata is tull of eats, candy fruit and peanuts. The batter is to hit the bag and burst it. The Spanish class had a real enjoyable time trying to get the contents of the Pinata. it took some time, before the oag was broken, but. when It -was there was some scramble for the goodies that spilled on the floor. .

On Tuesday, at 10 o'clock, a. m., a short service was held at the home. V. A. Vanderhodf read Psalms 130 and 131, and offered, prayer, followed by a few remarks about the . beautiful life of one whom everyone knew as "Mother" George. He spoke feelingly of her loving friendliness to all. es pecially those in trouble, of the countless acts of kindness to others, which made up her daily life. His remarks about her "right hand knowing not what her left hand doeth" led naturally to the short sermon by Rev. Chas. Sweet, who chose as his text II Corinthians, 4": IS, "For we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for "the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not- seen are eternal." After a short prayer the service was closed by all repeating .the Twenty-third. Psalm in unison. Thursday evening Mr. and Mrs. Frank Last left for Pennsylvania with the remains. They were Joined at Maricopa by Roy M. George, while Miss Jtuth George awaits their arrival "in Pittsburg.
