The Library Program.
The entertainment given by the
Murray Library Association on Tues
day evening of this week wr.s one of
the most successful occasions that has
ever been given by the association.
Dinner was served at, noon, the pro
ceeds of which made the association
about $10 richer. The program w as
given in the evening, and there were
tibout sb ty in attendance. The read
ing by Mrs. T. J. Rrendel was very
interesting, also the civic improve
ment talk by Miss Marquardt, county
superintendent of schools. The solo
by Miss Neva Latta was greatly en
joyed, also the c ue by Mr. Carl Range.
The little library room was crowded
to its utmost capacity. Mrs. Lloyd
Gapen presided over the meeting. The
Murray Library association is sure

present promoters have cause to feci
proud of thir efforts.

music by the Victrola. At 5 o'clock
the company was invited to the beau

cards of scarlet hearts, together with
streamers of scarlet hearts and rib

St. Valentine's day.

all departed to their homes feeling
grateful to Miss Claire and Master

Lee Kniss mail rwute team took
quite a lively spin down the Main
street of Murray Wednesday after
noon. One would think that after
traveling a mail route when the road
are in the condition that they are
now, the team would certainly h'j
readv to rest, but not so this time.
Lee had tied them at the upper part
of the street, but from some cause
they became frightened and broke
loose, and ran down to the railroad
tracks, where they were stopped, but
not until the wagon and harness were
pretty badly torn up. The wagon
traveled on its top most of the way,
which was completely torn off. The
horses fell on the tracks and wer?
slightly bruised, but not injured.
