F. M. Young, Jr., and are
One of the most pleasant enter
tainments held In the county for
some time, was the surprise farewell
dinner tendered Mr. and Mrs. F. M.
Younsr. Jr.. and family vesterdav. at
their cozy country home, one mIle
west and five miles south of this
city. When the 58 guests came in on
Mr. and Mrs. Young, they were com
pletely surprised but soon recovered
and entertained tHem in a most de
lightful manner. The occasion was in
the nature of a farewell, as this
most estimable family expect to re
move from this county to Minnesota
soon, where they will make their fu
ture home, and it may be said that
the entertainment of yesterday was
all that a most hositable mind and
expert culinary ability could devise.
A dinner such as is served, only in
a Nebraska farm home, was spread at
the noon hour to which all did ample
Justice and which elicited many com
pliments. The daintiest dishes the
larder could afford were most tempt
ingly served and were likewise great
ly enjoyed. The afternoon was devot
ed to social conversation, the review
ing of the good times the guests had
spent together and Just previous to
the close of this most delightful en
tertainment the entire company re
paired out of doors where a picture
of the group was taken. Finally the
farewells were said and those for
tunate enough to be present voted
that for down-right enjoyment, this
occasion was one of the very, best it
was ever their good fortune to parti
cipate In, the only thing to detract
from the Joyousness of the day be
ing the thought that Mr. Young and
family were soon to move away.

Farewell Reception Tendered
Mr. and Mrs. Warren Wiley
Who Move to Plainview
It was the pleasure of the Journal
scribe to attend another most en
joyable event In Murray on Wednes
day, February 13, 1910. The occa
sion being given In honor of Mr. and
Mrs. Warren Wiley, two of this vicin
ity's most worthy and popular young
people, who will make their future
home near Plainview, Neb. It was
at first Intended to hold the affair in
the Christian church, but after due
consideration it was concluded best
to hold the entertainment at the ele
gant home of Mr. and Mrs. S. F.
Young, Sr., the parents of Mrs. Wiley.
The reception was managed by Mes
dames A. L. Baker and Myra Mc-
- Donald' and the termination of the
Pleasant vent fully denotes that these
ladles done their part of the work
with completeness and dispatch, for
which they are entitled to great cred
it. The dinner was somewhat arranged
on the picnic order, and basket after
basket of eatables of all kinds were
brought In by the ladies who partlcl
pated, and several tables arranged
upon which these were placed. Chick
en, pork, beef, ham, cakes", pies and
fine home-made bread were greatly in
evidence. Besides canned fruits, pre
serves, jellies, salads, mashed pota
toes, were in profusion, and It ap
peared to us that after the large
number present had partaken to their
heart's content, there was enough
left to feed as many more. The writ
er enjoyed the dinner because It was
if the kind that just suited, and from
the way Dave Young, the Drs. Bren
del, Charley Carroll, and the other
boys went after the good things, they
enjoyed the many toothsome vlandes
fully as well as we relished everything
placed In front of us.
The rooms at the fine home of our
dear, good old friends, Mr. and Mrs.
F. S. Young, Sr., were tastely ar
ranged for the happy throng and both
were kept busy In seeing that all felt
at home while under their hospitable
roof. Their daughter, Miss Isabella,
was busy all this time, also, in look
lng after the younger set, and we can
say that she performed her part to
perfection. Being one of those young
ladles with a Joyous and happy dis
position, she made everyone around
her feel the touch of the same spirit.
Miss Isabella was ably assisted In
entertaining by Miss Bessie Brendel,
who also possesses the spirit of mak
ing everyone happy on occasions of
this character. And these young
ladles, In connection with Mesdames
Baker and McDonald were alert in
making all present feel that it was
really good to be there.
After all had partaken of the many
good things spread before them, the
afternoon was spent in social conver
sation, lntespersed with some very
choice piano selections by Mrs. Rex
Young and Miss Isabella, which
was attended at intervals by
some excellent vocal pieces by others
present. Miss Pauline Oldham, who
Is well known for her splendid elo
cutionary attainments, also entertain
ed the guests with several very in
It was a late hour in the afternoon
when adjournment was taken, and
all bid Mr. and Mrs. Wiley an af
fectionate farewell, with the assur
ance that they will live happy in their
new borne and that prosperity will
always attend them. They were both
born and reared In Cass county, and
this demonstration in their honor is
but an indication of the esteem In
w hich these young people are held by
the community at large. The assem
bled guests also demonstrated their
appreciation to Mr and Mrs. Young
for the elegant manner In which they
were entertained at their home, and
when all departed It was with happy
hearts and bright smiles, knowing
full well that they had spent one of
the happiest days of tneir lives.
Those who were present to enjoy
this happy event were: Mr. and Mrs.
