Tile most satisfaction was expressed last
night on the arrangements made for the
social and the orderly manner in which
it was conducted. Almost invariably at
sociables in this city, where a program of
musical selections or readings are to be
rendered, people are seated around in a
confused manner, and when a person
wishes to address their audience, a large
number are sitting with their backs to
them and talking away loud enough to
drown the speaker's utterances, and it is
also very disagreeable to singers, who
are obliged to strain their voices to make
people confident of their presence. This
was not so last night, as the seats were
arranged in good shape so that it proved
more satisfactory to oil. Miss Eva
Sherman officiated in the chair, and an
nounced in the early part of the evening
before any part was taken in any games'
r refreshments served, that the enter
tainment would commence. Solos by
Misses Anna Murphy, Gertie Kcrney and
Mr. W. A. Derrick were well rendered,
Miss Paul and Mrs. Campbell sang a
duett which was much appreciated by
alL Recitations were given by Misses
Lulu Simpson, Eva Sherman, and little

which were much appreciated. -The

A certain young lady of this city
narrowly escaped a terrible deuth yester
day morning while in the act of starting
a fire in a steve with the dangerous kind
ling, coal oil. Nearly every day ac
counts are seen in different paper of
people who die a horrible death in this
very way, yet, every day do people who
read of those accidents continue to use
this dangerous fluid in tho same. way.
Fortunately, thu young lady of whom
we speak was standing at a considerable
distance from the tove, at the time1 of
the explosion, r.o th:;t she escaped serious
injury, yet not without a mark to remind
her again. The once raven bangs are
somewhat shorter and schorched, and the
eye-brows are still there, yet not so prom-'
iufiit, but still, after all her lo.-s, the
young lady considers herself quite for
tunate. We trust people here may take
warning before another accident may oc
cur in this way.

A very pleasant surprise was given

disperse until the t-niull hours of tho
morning. A number of very handsome;
presents were given, ns follows: A gold
pen and hohlr, silver cup nnd saucer,
arm chair, bread plate, Swiss broom hold

The fcuiJlowcr social which was held
at the opera house last evening was at-uc-crss

remained at home, who would have put
in appearance had every tiling been fayor
able and added much mole life to tho
ullair, but as it was, considering all, tho
event was a very enjoyable one to all
present. A large number of artificial
suntlowcrs were neatly arranged in tho
center of the n om which made u splen
did appearance, showing up above every
thing tlse. Refieshnitnts were served in
abundance, and'ice cream, the first of tho
season, w as partaken of freely. Th pro
gram of music-, though not lengthy, was
an enjoyable one. Miss Paul, Mrs. Wag-m-r,
Mrs. Mergers, Miss Johnson and Miss
Gas favored tho audience with a number
of selections on the piano, which were
much appreciated by all. The zither
duets, which were well rendered by Mrs.

mention, as they were loudly encored.
Miss Waterman and Mrs. Wagner gave ft
violin and piano se'ection and were well
applauded. Mrs. Windham sang a solo
and was assisted iu the chorous by the
doubb: quartette. Miss Paul and Mr. J.
1. Pollock favored the audience with a
duet and Mr. Pollock and Mr. W. A.
Derrick each sang koIoh. The receipts
amounted to over 80.00 and the ladies
