The trip or Uev. A. G. Hollowell;
and familly toward the west on their
vacation outing seems to be marred
by a number of unfortunate inci- j
nents that have held them back sev-
iral days on the journey. When near
Hastings the car was repaired and
when they readied Kearney, the sis
ter tf Mrs. Hollowell was taken
sick and it was necessary to remain
there until Saturday before the trip
could be resumed.
The auto party then cranked up
the faithful Ford and continued on
their way to Gillette. Wyoming, and
their friends here have so far receiv

but are trusting that the party has
been able to lose the jinx that seems
io have followed them.

Picnic at Cedar Creek Last Evening
Is One cf the Most Pleasant
Social Events of Year
Last evening the members of the
V. M. II. C. of the FirM. Methodist
church decided to seek relief from
the torrid atmosphere of the ci-ty
in the cool and pleasant scenes near
Cedar Creek and 4b of the young nun
were loaded into cars at. the church
at .:0 and taken to the scene of
the festivities near the sand pit
just north ol Cedar Creek.
The preliminary aria ugemeut.- had
been looked after by tbe committee
composed of Jess Perry and George
Brinklow and they had made care
ful canvass of the available cars and
had ample room for the members of
tlie party when the signal to Marl
was given. Messrs Ferry and Brink
low together with Ward Whelan and
L. II. Cushman were als-o drafted on
the refreshment committee at tin
picnic grounds and their efforts aid
ed in completing this important part
of the program.
The festivities were staged in the
grove just north of the cast lake and
here the members of the party pre
pared a fine large campfire over
which the wenies were roafted prc
paritory to being transformed into
sandwiches and with the ride in the
fresh bracing air the members of the
party soon made deep inroads on the
store of good things provided for
i hem.
Bathing served as the chief amuse
ment of the evening and all of the
party came provided with their bath
ing suit.s and soon the waters of the
lake presented an animated scene hs
the mcmlK'i.s sported in the cool and
comforting waters.
When the joy of bathing had been
enjoyed for some time the jubilant
members of the party gathered on the
shore and enjoyed a real "sing" with
all kinds of pep and the songs of
yesterday and today were given with
great animation and spirit by the
jolly bunch and it was unanimously
voted that of the many pleasant oc
casions that the class have enjoyed
together this was one of the most
When the good old man moon was
shedding his peaceful rays over hill
and dale the jolly party returned to
the cars and strated homeward feel
ing somewhat tired but also delight
ed that they had been able to enjoy
an occasion of this kind and trust
ing that there might be many more
in store in the future.
