Surprised on Her Birthday.
Miss Marie Davis was 18 years
of age on Saturday last, and her
mother gave her somewhat of a
surprise by inviting in a number
of her voung friends to a Mav day
parly in honor of the event. Miss
Marie is the daughter o'f Air. and
Mrs. Meek Davis, west of Murray,
and this fine home was a scene of
much merriment on the date of
this happv event. Almost fifty of
Miss Marie's young friends were
present, and it is needless to add
that all enjoyed the happy oc
casion. They whiled the time
away . in different pleasantries
and plenty of the delicacies of the
season were supplied by the good
mother. The Journal surely
wishes that the charming daugh
ter oi Air. and Airs. Davis may
live to enjoy many more such oc
casions. She no doubt will re
member the May day party given
in her honor many years, as wil
also her guests.
A Narrow Escape.
About the noon hour Tuesday
M. G. Churchill's auto and John
Jenkins' motorcycle collided on
the street, and it is indeed for
lunate that' neither of the partie
were injured. John was com in:
from the 'north down onto Alain
street, while Alack was going in
the direction that John was com
ing from. It seems that John
was just turning the corner, as
both were coming and going, anc
both turned to the right in an ef
fort to get out of the road of the
other's way, and hence the col
lision. No one perhaps can tel
who was to blame for the col
Iision, and it would be folly to
really blame it on either. They
both should feel thankful that
neither was killed or badly in
jured. Both machines were con
siderably injured, and it is a safe
bet that they both won't try to
pass on the same side next time
All the pupils of the eighth
grade of the Alurray school pass
ed the final county examination
The following are the pupils
names and average grades: Afae
Loughridge, 9J.5 per cent; Naomi
Adams, 9i.l per cent; Oliver
Gapen, 01.9 per cent; Isabe
Shrader, 90.1 per cent. We give
Naomi Adams' grade because she
took the most part of her eighth
grade work under Miss Pollard.
The eighth grade will go to
Weeping Water June ith to their
commencement. Miss Pollard
will join them at Nehawka. Alae
Loughridge will take part in the
commencement exercises by giv
ing a piano solo.
A meeting was held at the
scho'ol house Monday evening
for the district to vote on whether
or not they should sell or retain
the old building. The motion
was made to keep the old build
ing until the new one was com
pleted for school purposes this
fall, then to sell it and put the
money received into the building
fund. The motion was carried,
4 to 1. The new building is ex
pected to be started at once and
pushed to c'ompletition by fall.

Fine Time at Homer Shrader's.
The East Rock Bluffs Whist
club met at the home of Mr. and
Airs. Homer Shrader, three miles
east of Alurray, last Friday night,
and about all the members an
swered roll call, and then the fun
began in the usual manner of
playing whist and other amuse
ments. Air. and Airs. Shrader
were untiring in their efTorts to
make the visit of the club as
pleasant as possible, and from all
reports they succeeded in doing
so admirably. This club is of the
right short to have a good time if
the opportunity is afforded, and
they surely had no kick coming
on this occasion, and they did not
take their departure until they
unanimously voted Homer and his
estimable lady first-class enter
tainers. Still Doing the Business.
Baker & Nickels are certainly
in business up to their eyes. They
have, for the entire season, been
selling machinery and hardware
riirht. and left. and since the
farmers have caught onto the fact
that they can buy machinery and
hardware as cheap in Alurray as
can be bought elsewhere they
don't pretend to go elsewhere for
what they want. And then, again,
Arthur and Ge'orge are nice gen
tlemen to trade with, and they
keep the goods.
