Guests of Honor Elizabeth
Jane Orebaugh and Frances
Emily Karmire
          One of the cleverest birthday parties given in this city recently was enjoyed this afternoon, beginning at two o'clock, by the pupils of the kindergarten department at the Colescott street building.  The purpils, about forty in number, were the guests and those in whose honore the party was given are  Elizabeth Jane Orebaugh,  daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Orebaugh,  and  Frances Emily Karmire,  daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Will Karmire.  The former was six Tuesday and the latter six today.
          The school has a very pretty custom of holding parties at the building to celebrate the birthdays of the children in attendance and the arrangements for the party this afternoon were made by the teacher,  Miss Myrtle Pearson,  and the mammas of the two little girls.
          The kindergarten rooms were specially decorated and refreshments were served.  As a souvenir of the occasion each of the children was given a photograph of the two little girls, and Mr. Oscar Orebaugh took a group photo of the children.

Church Epworth League, will be in charge of the service this evening at seven o'clock, in the parlors of the church, assisted by the full team of this important branch of the work.  The subject of the hour's discussion will be the following:  "The Holy Spirit,"  John 14:16-26; 16:7-13.  The first part of the service will be devoted mainly in reading the different reports of the committee, giving a minute statement of what they have been doing, also what good they have accomplished since their last general report to the League.  The closing thirty minutes will be devoted to a song, prayer and minute talks upon the topic lesson by different members.  Visitors especially made welcome.
