Social note* 1898 A TAFFY PULL.

The young ladies who comprise the Friday Afternoon club royally entertained their young gentlemen friends last night at a taffy pull at Miss Helen Clark's home on Central avenue.
A picture guessing contest furnished much amusement. Each guest contributed a baby picture of himself or herself, as the case might be, and they spent a merry half hour guessing "who was who." Miss Emily Newell won a pretty picture frame by guessing more than anyone else.
Henry Cowgill tried to handicap the other contestants by palming off a rare edition of Harry Putnam's physiognomy as his own, but though the fraud was not discovered the young man was never in it so that the result was not affected.

B.B. Briles furnished a supply of taffy and the young folks had a jolly time.
