Miss Mildred Tooke gave a delightful straw ride and husking bee for her friends last Tuesday evening at her home at Chittenango Falls in honor of her birthday. Nineteen were present from Cazenovia and six from Chittenango Falls.

Many red ears were found during the evening. Later guests gathered at the house where a harvest supper was served. Dancing and music were enjoyed and at a late hour they returned home.
