03 13       On invitation of William Sproesser and Charles R. Blumenfeld the Iroquois Club partook of a "Benedict's luncheon" at the club rooms Saturday evening, to celebrate the recent entry, of these two young gentlemen into the married state.  All the Benedicts, except the "Major", were present, as well as a number of prospective ones and the confirmed bachelors.  Full justice was done the appetizing "spread", after which there were numerous diversions that go to make the enjoyable "stag".  The regular club quartette and another quartette formed for the special occasion "made the welkin ring" with their jolly songs, and altogether the affair was a most happy one.
