Success – Splendid Music and Beautiful Costumes – The Club Cleared About $150.00 (centered)

Amidst scenes of gayety and brilliancy charity extended an open hand to the poor of Muncie at Anthony Hall last evening.   Charity donned her richest robes and in fancy wrapped her cloak about the poor and distressed, giving comfort and sustenance to the starving and warmth to the many chilled by the cold of misery and affliction. Wealth and contentment clasped hands with poverty and sorrow and a generous deed was done. The elite of Muncie’s bon-ton society were there, and with hearts attuned to the strains of beautiful music, furnished by Hart’s orchestra of Indianapolis, they danced the hours away.

The occasion was the charity ball given by the Samovar club.....
