BIRTHDAY PARTY. - Mrs. T. C. GRAY planned a very pleasant party in honor of her son, Evan's, ninth birthday. The guests, about twenty in number were masked, some of them presenting a very ludicrous appearance. One little fellow was dressed in his father's "bloomer" ball pants and well, we think he must have been the clown. After they had enjoyed themselves in the masks for a time they unmasked and partook of refreshments prepared by Mrs. GRAY. The party was from half past six to half past eight, and they departed for their homes wishing their little friend many happy birthdays.
