Tho other play "Tho Two Puddi
foots," in which Van Horn, Leo At
wood, Guy Livingston and tho Misses
Iloso rivers, Phyllis Petts and Lulu
Liost did splendidly. Miss Ilyers'
mako-up was great and her acting

the specialty man, was very fine.
Both plays were put on in a faultless
manner, and we hear nothing but

A Successful Service.
Thoso who wero present at tho
Christian church last evening wit
nessed one of the most pleasing and
delightful scenes thnt has taken place
during any of the services; that of
nine young people going forward to
the altar and declaring' publicly their
intentions of following Christ.
The subject of the evening "Four
Fools We Head About In the ttible"
was delivered in an excellent manner
by Rev. Lemon, and was listened to
by a small, but appreciative audience

Yesterday was Frank Morgan's

friends met at the Kiley and went to
the Morcan residence in a bodv about
8 o'clock and when Frank got home,
he showed the surprise he felt on find
ing such a company comfortably lo
cated at the family residence.
The evening was given over to cards
and conversation, and later on an ele
gant luncheon was served to the evi
dent delectation of all present, who
wished the host many returns of so
congenial a birthday anniversary.

geese and whatever game they might
be able to find. They will be gone

turn with bad. colds, an abundance of
summer stories and some game. We
trust the boys will have a good time
and return to the bosom of their fami
lies and to the arms of their friends
much improved in health from their

to a reporter for tho Cincinnati Com

they'll get booted out.'
"But," said tho cigar dealer, "tbey

show that they have been to every store
