Will Have Old Settlers' Reunion
Last Saturday evening at the office
of Attorney C. L. Graves was held a
meeting looking towards the holding
of the annual meeting of the pioneers
and old settlers which have now been
held for the past third of a century.
The dates selected for the reunion
have been set for August 18 th and
19th. they being respectively Friday
The officers for the coming year
have been selected and are W. B.
Banning, president; J. T. Reynolds,
vice president; C. L. Graves, secre
tary and D. B. Porter, treasurer.
The annual meeting of the pio
neers and old settlers has become
one of the fixed dates in the minds
of the community and has ever been
looked forward to as a time of
pleasure. as at that time friend
meets friends, which is not possible
when the people are so busy trying
to make a living.
The executive committee will con
sist of the four officers and three
more to be appointed by the presi
dent. Other committees will be an
nounced by this paper as they are
selected. The committee is fortu
nate in that they have just $46.49
in the treasury to begin their work
with. The committee and members
are to meet this coming Saturday for
furthering the work preparatory to
holding the annual reunion.
The annual picnic of the Metho
dist Sunday school was held yester
day at the Toid pasture north of the
city, near the Platte river and where
the young and old disported them
selves to their heart's content in the
open air and cooling breezes that
came down the Platte valley to add
to the day's pleasure.
The picnicers were conveyed from
the church by cars, which were kind
ly donated for the occasion by the
auto owners of the city and the mem
bers of the church and Sunday school
feel deeply grateful lor the assist
ance given in making the picnic the
success that it was.
On arrival at the picnic grounds
the program of the day was opened
and the picnicers found the spot
that J. E. Kuykendall, chairman of
the grounds committee, had selected
was ideal and also that the thought
ful chairman had provided plenty of
good drinking water for the occas
ion. The program of sports was in
charge of Rev. and Mrs. John Cal
vert and embraced games for every
one from the little tots to the mature
members of the party. In this de
partment the baseball game was the
real treat and furnished plenty of
pep and enthusiasm. Joe Buttery
and Alfred Calvert were the two
captains and the rival teams took
the field determined to win, but
when the smoke of battle rolled
away the Buttery team was the win
ner." 10 to 3. W. F. Huneke, who
used to swat 'em in the professional
baseball line, was the slab artist for
the Buttery team and "Happy" Con
nors did the receiving act in great
shape and as the result of his efforts
the genial storekeeper whiffed sev
en of his opponents in three innings.
Alfred Calvert did the pitching for
his team and kept many of his hus
ky rivals guessing. It is stated that
W. F. Evcrs is a second Babe Ruth
as far as hitting is 'concerned, and
proceeded to lose a ball by knocking
it down the Platte valley so far that
it has not yet been recovered. Don
York. W. F. Huneke. and Rev. Cal
vert also were some stickers during
the battle and Jim Kuykendall at
first was grabbing them on both
sides of the bag with ease.
The feature that appealed to ev
eryone was the loads of good things
to eat that Mrs. Ic. B. Hayes and her
committee dispensed to the jolly par
ty and which capped the climax of
the afternoon. W. F. Evers was the
chairman of the transportation com
mittee and from hi3 success he should
be commended as there were ample
accommodation for the crowd.
The whole affair was supervised
by Don York, superintendent of the
Sunday school, and who worked hard
to make it a success and it is the
unanimous verdict that it was the
most successful picnic ever.

Yesterday afternoon George F.

go where he will enjoy a visit in
that city with his brother-in-law,
Jack Hazzard. who is playing there
in one of the successful musical
comedies of the year. George has a
number of opportunities of locating

rical profession for his career and in
which he undoubtedly would find the
greatest of success.
