Two Girls


Some Unique Costumes at the Royal Neighbors Ball.

Notwithstanding the intense cold the masquerade ball given by the R. N. A. last Monday night was a grand success, and an enjoyable time was had by everyone. At an early hour the hall began to fill rapidly with maskers, and at 9:30 when the first straius {sp} of the grand march were wafted across the hall the floor was crowded. Many spectators were present also. The different characters were well represented by many beautiful costumes.

The gentleman's prize—a beautiful smoking set—was awarded to Mr. Wm. Hale, who so ably represented Uncle Sam, and the ladies' prize—an elegant china tea set—was presented to Miss Mae McCone, of Penn, who represented the Goddess of Liberty.

Masks were drawn about 11:30 and dancing continued until 4 o'clock, when all dispersed, leaving every assurance of having had a good time. The dance receipts netted the order about $50. The ladies extend a vote of thanks to Bert Duell for music furnished during the evening.

Brown, night; Miss Fanning, night; Mrs. McKee, night; Miss Schoonberg, night; Mrs. Ferris, gypsy girl; Miss Susie Hale, Red Riding Hood; Mrs. Lewis, liberty; Miss McKone, liberty; Mrs. Rodenback, Topsy; Mrs. Kollar, queen of diamonds; Mrs. Greene, queen of hearts; Miss Gilday, negress, Miss Flummerfelt, music; Miss Rodenback, daughter of regiment, Mrs. Reid, flower girl; Miss Dolan, flower girl; Miss Cameron, flower girl; Miss Sparks, flower girl; Mrs. F.
