Mr. and Mrs. Rae of Ash street are the proud parents of a baby girl, born July 28. Edward W. Burling and family are in the east, where they will spend several weeks. Miss Rosanna McKenney has been spending a few days with friends in Indianapolis, Ind. Miss Phoebe Suhr has returned from her vacation, which was spent at Grand Haven, Mich. Raymond Loco, who is enjoying his vacation, will spend part of it in Indianapolis, Ind., with his wife's parents. Miss Deborah Hunter of Fargo, N. D. and Francis P. Butler of Winnetka will be married at Fargo, Aug. 31. Miss Hazel Perier has given up her position at M. K. Meyer's store. Miss Pervier will be married in the latter part of this month. Dr. William L. Ballenger, who has been in England as the guest of the British Medical association, is expected home within a few days. Last Wednesday evening Miss Rosie Allraum of Winnetka and Reinhart Morebach of Chicago were united in marriage. The ceremony was performed at Sacred Heart church by the Rev. P. J. Haarth. Edward Flynn, who was badly hurt last week while working on one of the presses at the Chicago Tribune, was brought to Winnetka in an automobile Sunday and spent a few hours with his parents. He was later taken back to the Passavant hospital. Despite the efforts of the rain to break up the entertainment given in Winnetka last Thursday for the benefit of the Providence Day Nursery, those in charge held the affair and more than $500 was realized. It was planned to hold a garden party on the Peabody, Butler and Houghteling lawns, but the rain prevented this. The scene was transferred to the Houghteling home, however, and everything went off smoothly. A program of songs was given by Mrs. A. F. Callagah and Mrs. John Slade. The group of young women who had arranged bouquets for the charity transferred their duties from the gardens to the rooms. They were Miss May Peabody, Miss Alice Buckingham, Miss Leila and Miss Margaret Houghteling, Miss Dorothy Coffin and her guest, Miss Norvelle Brown of New York. The women who served at the dining table were: Mrs. Charles Fuller, Mrs. Josia McRoberts, Mrs. Augustus Peabody, Mrs. Howard Clements, Miss Dorothy Stirling, Miss Josephine Landon and Mrs. Arthur Coffin.
