About sixty young people of the three cities participated in the pleasures of the evening. The beautiful home of the Rosenfieu-.a' was elegantly decorated, the dancing hall being in Christmas evergreen. The lights from chandeliers, in the center of the room gleamed through a mass of rich holly. From this ropes of holly were festooned to the corners of the room. In the tiorth end of thfe room an alcove was formed of palms and here Petersen's orchestra discoursed delightful valses and two steps. A Turk- }-h pavillion was formed by rich Oriental draperies and lighted with green shaded tapers. In the center of an Oriental table was a large cluster of carnations and hyacinths. The arched entrance to this Eastern monovalion was in holly. The whole conspired to make a brilliant and beautiful scene. The costumes vied with the general beauty. The hostess wore white chiffon over white taffeta elaborate trimmings of lace. The bride elect, Miss Cassell, wore a lovely creation of.white embroidered chiffon over taffeta; The supper was served on small tables seating six guests. Every other table had a bridesmaid' rose houqnet -for a center piece and every other table a»caiKleia-' brum with Jewish tapers. The tables were garlanded with smilax, the bride's table cloth being beautifully hand embroidered in brides maid roses. The cliamielier was festooned in smilax and pink roses. The ires were all in harmony with tho occasion, being hearts, cupids, etc. TWO LETTERS ADDRESSED TO SANTA GLAUS One is. From No. 9 School Girl and the Other From Fireman.

REPORT OF POKER GAME WAS ENTIRELY CORRECT ^^^^^^^^^^^^_^^^^^^^JJfcA^^j^^rffc^^^» * Apparent Contradiction Explained by the Method of Play.-i . . m u t It developed yesterday that a number 'of persons not familiar with the methods of playing poker in the\upper part of the Fifth vrard- conjectured that the fact that an Oak .Lane man took the money from a Walling court resident, the latter having five kings counting the joker as one and the. former having a royal Sush, indicated that one or the other of the men had a kins up his sleeve. The general misappre^" hension regarding the matter amounted almost to a scandal, and the Republican office vras called up frequently yesterday for an explanation of the matter. The suspicion that cue .or the other of the gentlemen, cheated ' a t cards Is very unfortunate,'inasmuch as both are very far above such an. action. The facts of the game were as given in the Republican yesterday morning and \vere given with the idea that tbose at all familiar with the game \vould see at once that the Walling court and the Oak Lane men were playing "deuce wild," that is, they were counting a deuce as anything they might choose. This is a standing rule of draw in tuG Upper Fifth, In the game in question, the Oak Lane man held a deuce and found that by counting it as a king he , could make a royal fiush out of his i hand. It was entirely within his rights to do this, and no objection was raised to his claim that he was entitled to the money. Those who are not familiar with all the ways of playing the-national game should "sit in" at a game with the gentlemen in the Upper Fifth, and get instruction in all up-to-date methods of play. $81 ?
