THE HOME OF SATISFACTION.
Enjoy, d Her Lecture.
The lecture last night at the First
Methodist Epb copal church, delivered
Vy Miss Ellen M. Stone, was a red
letter event in the history of Platts
niouth. The edifice was filled to its
capacity almost and the interest ac
corded the words of the lecturer was
flattering. Miss Strong is a gifted
speaker with a most pleasant persona
lity. Her words which carried to all
parts of ths building were followed
closely ar.d all were sorry when she
brought her remark to a close. She
told in a graphic manner of her capture
by Turkish brigands while passing
through Macedonia and of the many
hardships she met with before a gener
ous country buccetded in having her
liberated. She lold of her travels by
night and her confinement in secluded
places in the mountains during the days
of her captivity. She touched pathet
ically upon the birth of a child to a
woman who was with ht r during the
entire time of her imprisonmeet, of the
payment of $65,000 by the United
States government for her ransom, but
she never knew by whom the money
was paid or who received it. She told
of being taken with the woman and
babe to a point near some city and be
ing left there. In speaking of her
captivity Miss Stone said that she never
knew just where she had been taken.
After being left near the city by her
conductors another man soon arrived
and accompanied them into town.
Before the speaker was introduced
Rev. Austin delivered an eloquent
prayenjand lead in singing'a few fami
liar hyms, Mrs. George L. Farley pre

that they were ready at any time to
have the machinery installed and were

Fagot Patty Last Night
A Fagot party was pulled o(F last
night by the P. E. O. at the beautiful
home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Par
mele and it was a little the best thing
in the entertainment line we have
heard of for some time. In the fire
place had been kindled a fire while the
lights in and about the house were
either turned completely out or very
low and all kinds of ghosts and hob
gobblins were to be seen. Stories were
told that were blood curdling in their
horrible details and as each story teller
was called upon to do his particular
stunt the creepine33 was increased un
til it seemed as though there could
be nothing more said that had not
already been told, so far as the
imagination could be stretched. J. M.
Parks and W. C. Ramsey were at
their very worst and that is saying a
great deal, and they w ill have much to
answer for. It was due to their ef
forts that many of the ladies were un
able to sleep last night. There is a day
of reckoning coming for those two men.
There were lots of good, or ghostly
things to eat and many weird stunts
pulled off and it was all due to the
notice over the fire place which read,
"Don't grunt, do your stunt." That
notice was followed literally. Mr. and
Mrs. Parmarle added to their fame as
entertainers, last night, and again
gave evidence to the well known fact
that they are never so happy as when
sui rounded by their friends.
Basket Ball Games.
An enthusiastic crowd of rooters
turned out Saturday night to the bas
ket ball games and saw the sophmores
slaughter the freshmen to the tune of
25 to 17 and the juniors turn the trick
on the Beniors by a score of 32 to 18.
The game was intensely interesting
andwas replete with many brilliant
plays. Next Thursday night the win
ners will contest for the championship
and upon the same night the senior and
junior girls will contest for supremecy,
Gas Light on This Evening.
