A. O. Perry,
Mask Ball of the Eagles' is a Most
The big mask ball of the Fraternal
Order of Eagles which was given last
Saturday night at the T. J. Sokol hall
was the greatest and biggest affair of
the kind this order has ever given. No
only was the attendance the largest
of any of their delightful dances, but
it was a Jolly and good natured crowd
who had turned out to enjoy them
selves and have a good time. The
maskers were great many In number
and were dressed In all kinds of cos
tumes, some elegant, some delipldated
and some highly humorous. The task
of the judges who were chosen to se
ct the several winners of the priz-
s offered, was a hard one owifig to
the many fine costumes and the orig
inal taste displayed in preparing
Financially the affair was a grand
success and the lodge netted a hand
some sum. The management of the
ball was excellent in every way, from
the preliminary arrangements to the
details of the floor. To give Individ
ual praise where so many hdd as
sisted would be an Impossible task as
all did their share and did it well.
The crowd remained until a late
hour, the floor being crowded with
dancers far Into the night. It might
be added that the attendance was far
better than could have been usually
expected on such a stormy, bad night.
The prizes which were awarded by
(Onuiilttee of three consisting of
Messrs. Henry Meislnger, George
ushlnsky and Anton Koubek, were
very handsome ones and were taken
as follows: Gentlemen's best cos
tume, first prize, John Koukal; sec
ond prize, Henry Skoumal. Ladies'
best costume, first prize, Miss Olga
at tier; second prize, Miss Nettie
Vallery. Trio of costumes, Roy Hol
ly, Jas. Rebal, jr., and Charles Hula.
The trio prize Is especially worthy of
merit, although all were very line.
The three young men made up to rcp-
esent a family, father, mother and
son, and they were very excellently
gotten up. Taken all through, the
performance was a grand success and
thl' Ecgles demonstrated that they
were entertainers of the first water.
. Pleasant Surprise.
Saturday evening a number of
young people assembled at the home
of Miss Cecil Hawkenbury and most
ngreeably surprised her. After the
young lady had recovered from the
shock she Invited the Invaders In
and proceeded to entertain them In
a most charming manner. Various
games were Introduced, all of which
produced much merriment. The
pleasures of the meeting were fur
ther augmented when the delicious
refreshments, provided by the In
vaders, were served and to which
all did ample justice. At a late hour
the Invaders, after voting Miss
Hawksbury a royal entertainer,
withdrew their forces.
Those who enjoyed this most
pleasant surprise were Misses Bertha
Jackson, Ina Hatt, Golda Hale, Mat
tie Larson, Adella White, Jennie
Batten, Lillian Thompson, Messrs.
Ray Smith and Roy Thompson.
Hud a Hard Time.
Thos. L. Murphy of the Porter-Ry-
erson-Hoobler Company, of Omaha,
came down Saturday night to spend.
Sunday with his folks, Intending to re
turn to his duties Sunday night. He
was grlevlously disappointed when
he went to the Burlington station to
take No. 14 for Pacific Junction.
where he would catch No. 13 for his
destination. He arrived at the train
In time to miss it. He also found him
self too late for tho Missouri Pacific
north bound train and this morning
he rose up and walked to the M. P,
depot with the Intention of taking the
morning train only to And that the
operator knew nothing about when It
would be along. He walked back to
the Burlington station to take No. 19
anl ran up against another snag as
the wreck at LaPlatte caused this
train to be detoured by way of Coun
rll Bluffs. He finally got out of town
about ten o'clock on a Btub which
ran to Oreapolls to connect wllh the
Wltli the Sick.
Geo. McDanlels who was operated
upon at Omaha last Thursday,
still holding his own and shows sit; us
of Improvement which are quite en-
cnuror-lng to his physicians. He will
undoubtedly come through the or
deal all light and will soon be ulxntt
among l.ls friends its of old.
Henry St till, mention of whose ser
lens Injury was mime In these col
minis seme time ago wuen lie was
sealded In a vat of boiling water. U
reported us getting along very well
although It will be some lime before
he completely recovers. It
probable that It will be necessary to
graft some skin upon the Injuret1
man's nrm before he can get well
and lis physlcinn Is preparing to
adopt this course very shortly. The
Injuries are gradually growing less
painful as time goes on.
Mrs. John Nemetz continues to
make favorable progress toward re
covery, and her many friends will be
rejoiced to hear of this. Mrs. Ne
metz has had a very hard time,
and her regaining good health will
be a most thankful blessing. Her
physicians now consider her as well
along the road to the desired goal.
The condition of W. L. Street is
reported as continuing favorable and
his recovery and restoration to good
health is now a certainty. This is
welcome news to the host of friends
who have watched the progress of
Mr. Street with great anxiety.
Lincoln Day Services
The Lincoln day observance in
this city was chiefly notable for ex
ercises at the Christian Science and
.Methodist churches participated in by
the members of the G. A. R. and the
W. R. C. These two bodies met at
the Christian Science rooms In the
Coates block where they listened to
an able and spirited address in the
morning while In the evening Rev.
Dr. Randall gave them an excellent
discourse upon Abraham Lincoln at
his church. Rev. Randall's address
is very favorably spoken of by all
who heard It as one of the most In
tellectual and brilliant addresses giv
en here. It is to be regrettr- that
more extended notice cannot .. iv-
n this able discourse, but lack of
space prevents. There was one par
ticular feature of Dr. Randall's ad
dress which Is deserving of more
than passing comment and that was
the portion which deals with Lin
coln's early poverty as an element
of strength to him. Dr. Randall
dwelt upon this feature at some
length presenting it in an entirely
new light. It is needless to say his
remarks held his audience through
Aside from these two observances
and the rendition of patriotic pro
grams by the public schools, there
was little to mark the anniversary.
Several of the programs of the
schools, were of unusual excellence
and showed much attention and study
by both teachers and pupils.
Flaps were displayed at the public
buildings and many private resl-
enees but business generally was not
suspended, most people seeming to
consider the display of flags and
bunting as being all that was re-
Friday evening the members of the
holr of the Presbyterian church
met at the pleasant home of Mr.
and Mrs. George L. Farley for their
regular weekly practice. But on
this particular Friday evening a
number of friends of the choir were
Invited to participate In the even
ing's pleasures, all of which was in
honor of an old time member of tho
choir, Mrs. Fred Lotshaw of St.
Paul, Minn. Social conversation In
terspersed with music, both instru
mental and vocal, were indulged In
aside from the regular rehearsal, af
ter which a dainty luncheon was
served. Mrs. Farley was assisted In
entertaining by Misses Nellie Wilson
and Carrie Balrd.
The members of the choir and the
friends present who enjoyed Mr. and
Mrs. Farley's hospitality were Mr.
and Mrs. J. E. Douglass, Mr. and Mrs.
Will Warga, Mrs. J. W. Gamble,
Misses Estelle Balrd, Johnson, Wil
son, Mr. B. A. McElwaln.
The girls of the city last Saturday
night gave a shirt waist dance at
Coates Hall which was one of the
best affairs of the kind given this
winter. The affair was purely In
formal and for that reason It was
more enjoyable than It would have
been otherwise. The programs were
In the shape of heart valentines
and were dainty and artistic affairs.
There was some twenty-five couples
present, a number being from out
of the city. The music was excellent
being furnished by Miss Pearl Mumm,
a talented and accomplished musi
Among the out of town guests
were Miss Wilson of Nebraska City
and Miss Epeneter of Omaha.

To complications ensuing after the
birth of this little one, in a large
measure death was due.

ment and culture, having graduated

to the day, Lincoln's birthday, and
commemorative of the patriotic Am
erican whose anniversary the gather
ing fell upon. A very fine three
course luncheon was served the many
guests, the seat cards being in the
form of valentines which Indicated
the near approach of Cupid's day.
The principal amusement furnished
was a game invented especially for
tho occasion. A valentine In the
form of a young woman was hung
upon the wall and the several guests
tried their hand with a bow and ar
row aiming to hit the young wo
woman's mouth with the arrow. The
first prize fell to Mrs. Bertha Peter
sen who came the closest to the mark
while Mrs. J. E. Leesley took the
booby prize. Mrs. Peterson received
a very elegant wall pocket as her
prize, while Mrs. Leesley was content
with a bow and arrow.
