Mrs. L. W. Uarger of Davenport,
Iowa, and Mrs. E. L. Spies of this
city. There were a large number of
the friends present at the gathering
and the occasion was one filled with
the greatest of pleasure, as the ladies
spent the hours with the busy needle
ii the preparation of many dainty
irticels of needlework and in visiting
among themselves for some time. Tho
ladies were invited at an appropriate
hour to enjoy a most tempting lunch
eon, which served to greatly add to
the pleasures of the occasion. It was
late in the afternoon when the ladies
departed for their homes, feeling that
the hospitality afforded them had cer
tainly been most delightful.

ceived and opened up a new fresh and
complete line of groceries in the Gorder
S building, opposite my old stand on Main

in this location awaiting the completion
of the repairs on my former business place.
I will be pleased to meet all my old friends
and patrons, also all new ones who care
to favor me with their patronage.
FALSE AND UNFOUNDED
STATEMENTS TRAVEL MUCH
FASTER THAN THE TRUTH
How easily false and unfounded
statements made by some unresponsi
ble party is shown by the report that
has been circulated for the past few

Palace Roller Skating Rink, and that
l.e intended to make the rink move.
Such a report is absolutely without
the least foundation and is not only
annoying to the owner of the rink,
but does Mr. Shlaes a deep injustice,
ps he never for a minute contemplat
ed securing the lot. He is here doing
business in a legitimate manner with
his theaters and attempting to se
cure as good a living as possible, and
l:e extends to anyone else the same
privilege and never for a minute con-
that he is making the rink a success.
Those who start such reports should
see that they have some foundation
before spreading them.

From Saturday's Dallr.
Mrs. A. G. Hollowell, who for the
past few weeks has been quite sick at
her home in this city, suffering from
a complication of maladies, is report
ed as being much better and is not
able to be up and around to some ex
tent, although still feeling quite poor
ly. Her many friends will be pleased
to learn that she is showing such
signs of improvement, and trust that
they may continue. The illness of
Mrs. Hollowell has kept her from a
great deal of her church work, in
which she is a most efficient assistant
to her husband, the pastor of the
Christian church, and her absence has
been most keenly fetl.
