cil and asked to draw a house and
plan for the bride-to-be. Then all
were asked to make a prophecy as
to the bride's future by using tin'
init ials of I heir own names to be
gin the words. A poem was also
written for her, each guesl con
tributing a line. Delicious re
freshments were served in the

beautifully decorated in pink and
white. Miss Harmon was asked
to follow a cord, winding as she
went, at intervals verses were
found instructing her. The llrst
was as follows:
"At the foot of the rainbow, I've
Are to be found treasures, some
Follow this string wherever it
And you'll find treasures to till
A rainbow of tissue paper was
at the end and the linen was at
tho foot. A delightful time was
enjoyed by all.
Catcher Mead, who, by the way, is
certainly burning Iheni up be
hind the bat, got one of Gruber's
last ones on the right hock in Ihe
last inning and had to retire.

bat and finished the game in
grand style. Except fur a few
errors on both sides the game was

The Dunbar ball learn was here
last Friday to try and show our
boys how the game is played, but,
as usual, our boys were winners
by a score of 5 to I. Old War
Horse Belts was on the bring line
for the locals, and but for a few
excusable errors the visitors
would not have had a look-in.
Both teams played nice ball and
it was an interesting game to
watch. The feature of the game
was a home run drive by Pitcher

it was the same old story, the
locals being again victorious.
Jesse Gruber wns on the mound
for the home team, and tho
famous Keckler for the visitors.
Both pitched good ball, but South
paw Gruber had a shade the bet
ter of the argument. The game
was an interesting one and was
holly contested from Ihe slarl.
If you put wheat under a mill
stone, it will be ground into flour;
if you put no wheat under it, it
grinds on, but wears itself away.
If you put Ihe proper amount of
nutritious food in the stomach it
will grind it into strength and
energy if the stomach cannot
accept enough food it, will wear
itself away. Give constant atten
tion to your stomach, and, if it is
too weak, use Triner's American
Elixir of Hitter Wine. This rem
edy is very strengthening, both to
the stomach and to the bowels and
will soon regulate Ihe digestion.
It will relieve many dilllcullies,
like loss of appetite, weakness,
vertigo, heart-burn, eructations,
constipation, headache and back
ache, flatulence, nervousness,
paleness. At drug stores. Jos.
