Social news, complete with ice cream and cake, from the May 16, 1912 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1.  Oh, how we wish we had a copy of the photograph Mr. Ashbrook took.

Birthday Surprise.

Tuesday being the birthday of Mrs. E. T. Duval, she was given a very pleasant surprise by her Sunday School class.  One of the members of the class had invited her over to her house to spend the afternoon.  Soon after her arrival at her neighbor’s she was sent for to come home, as she had company.  Imagine her surprise, when she walked into her front room and found her company, consisted of sixteen ladies, all members of her Sunday school class.

The ladies brought with them ice cream and cake, which they served.  Before they returned to their homes, Mr. Ashbrook came up and took a picture of the class and their teacher.
