Mrs. George Kaffenberger Invites
Them Out to Her Home, Eight
Mites West of This City.
From Saturday's Dally.
The strictly girls' organization,
known as "'The Standard Hearers"
f the Methodist church, accepted
an invitation from Mrs. (ieorge
KafTenberger, living eight miles
west of the city, to come out Fri
day and frolic and gambol over
their farm and eat a country din
ner. Through the generosity of
Mrs. Schoemaker, who provided a
hayrack and team, the bunch of
lassies were able to make the trip
with little inconvenience to them.
However, mention must be made
here that a most capable and
efficient chauffeur was secured to
pilot said conveyance lo the ranch,
that same chaulTcur being Jesse
Perry, esq. Hayrack rides are an
'old story for said chauffeur, and
the road being good, the distance
between this city and the Kaffen
berger home was quickly covered,
'arid the trip was without incident,
but most, everybody along the
route knew Jesse was coining.
After a rambling, bumping and
rollicking trip the party arrived
at the fine county home of (Ieorge
Kaffenberger x and his energetic
wife and then things commenced.
A horseback ride by the fear
less just preceding Ihe dinner bell
was an interesting feature. And'
then the dinner yellow-legged
chickens, pickles, tomatoes, cream
and lots of other good things too
numerous to mention that only
the country housewife knows how
to make. Everyone present says
thai Mrs. Kaffenberger has cinch
ed her reputation as a hostess and
maker of pies. The cream listed
above was not the solid, icy kind
usually found at social affairs, but
the real, thick creamy country
cream that raises on the crocks.
It is intimated that there will
be "a back to the farm movement"
soon as a result of this dinner.
In the afternoon a yelling contest
look place,- Miss Spencer being
awarded first prize. Next was a
plowing contest, first prize for
plow girls being awarded to Mis
ses Queen Handley and Wandra
Ramsey. A watermelon eating
contest followed, which was won
by Mrs. E. C. Hill. A'biinrh of
minor events were pulled off dur
ing the afternoon.
The crowd of girls and those in
attendance voted Mr. and Mrs.
Kaffenberger as big-hearted, hap
py and entertaining folks arid that
Ihe Standard Hearers would write
lo Mrs. Elba Crahill ltrooks in
Idaho, who was the former leader
of the gang, a fourteen-page let
ter, praising the entertainers and
the affair in general. Those at
tending were: Mrs. Hill, Misses
Spencer. Ramsey, Saltier, Glenn,
Adams, Jacks, Parker, Shoemaker,
Handley, (iorder, Jesse Perry,

The medal contest Tuesday
evening was so good that we can
not refrain from feeling sorry for
those who were mt there. Con
trary to the usual program of
what takes place at one of these
contests the prize was battled for
by grownup people and let us
add, artists. There were nine
numbers by matrons from differ
ent parts of the county and the
prize was won by Mrs. A. L. Zink,
wife of the Christian minister in
Plattsmoulh. lion. E. M. Pollard,
who presented the medal to Mrs.
Zink, took occasion to remark
that the judges had made a mis
take and instead of one should
have given nine medals.
To go into details would be
superfluous, sullice to say that
Mrs. Zink won by reciting "Little
Blossom," and I hat it was handled
in a manner that could have hard
ly been excelled. Mrs. A. J. Bee
son recited a selection after the
contest was over that was receiv
ed with applause. She had won a
medal at Plattsmoulh some time
ago and for that reason was bar
red from this contest. There was
a very fair attendance, but noth
ing like lliere ought to have been
in justice to the excellence of the

testants: Mrs. Marshall, Weep

A disastrous fire broke out yes
terday afternoon about 5 o'clock
at the barn of Fred Minchau, re
siding two miles north of Eagle,
which totally destroyed his line
new barn, with contents, includ
ing three head of horses and sev
eral sets of harness. One of the
horses ( was a valuable driving1
mare, which the family used
The fire, after burning the barn,
leaped over and destroyed two
fine stacks of alfalfa and one slack
of clover hay, then caught in the
cattle corral and burned that and
other buildings and cribs in the
vicinity of the barn. There were
some 300 neighbors on hand be
fore the damage was all done, but
nothing could be done to check
the flames. The fire even burned
the water tank.
The origin of the fire is a
mystery. A daughter of Mr. Min
chau was in the garden when the
lire was first noticed and it seem
ed lo have spread throughout the
barn, for it appeared to burst
forth from all sides at once. There
were children at the house, but
the young lady was sure none of
them had been in the barn yes
terday afternoon.
, The men working in the field
had not been about the barn since
noon. Mr. Minchau was not at
home, being in Kansas, where he
has been for some time. The los9
will be close to $2,000. The barn
was insured in the Farmers' Mu
tual Insurance company for two
thirds of its value.
