Preceding the banquet, the Com
mercial Club held its annual election
of officers at the regular Club hall, at

The banquet had been provided by
| the ladies of the Pythian Sisterhood
l iij four courses, and was one of the
) most elegant, as well as substantial
of any ever spread before a waiting
crowd of epicureans, and presided
over in a manner well calculated to
inspire the highest enjoyment of such
| an occasion by the ladies having the
j matter in charge.
At the close of flic banquet, cigars
and sweetmeats were passed and the
toasts of the evening followed. The
toastmaster for the occasion was our
honored eitixen. John W. Long, who,
while gracing the place for the first
time in his varied history, arose to
the occasion as one to the manor
horn, and performed the very ditticul
function in a way and witli a per
fection that gave those present no
cause to doubt the above assrteion and
his introduction of the various
speakers was especially replete
; with wit and humor that made the
coming speakers go some to find ad
equate reply to their humorous as
well otherwise pleasant introduction.
It would be impossible, with the
space at command to give any concise j
or intelligent resume of the gentle- i
men responding to the toasts, hence
we will omit it all, merely saying
each and all did honor to themselves, j
and to the company in its entirety, i

Tines into Foot
Dr. Carrie L. Bowman was called to
the home of H. A. Jung, Jr., a few
miles south of town, last Saturday
evening, to attend the injuries re
ceived by Mr. Jung, resulting from
stepping on a pitchfork, which badly
pierced the foot. She dressed the
wounded member and at last accounts
the patient was doing well, the only
danger to be feared being blood poison
ing, the tines of the pitchfork being
badly rust eaten.
Many amusing episodes occurred at
the banquet, outside of the wit and
humor provided by the toastmaster
and speakers, and the good cheer,
! repartee and side remarks between
' guest at the tables was worth many
i times the price of admission. A vex
ed question of whether cream and
j sugar should be used in bbuillon was
settled in the affirmative by a number j
! of the banqueters, and their wives
have decided that prior to future
functions of the kind they will have
schools of instruction for their hub
bies. However, one particular ban
queter, who had evidently been par
tially “put next’’ by his better-half,
and wished to correct his side-partner,
called out in a stage whisper, heard
the distance of a dozen guests either
way: “This is not coffee, this issoup,”
and was the last straw that broke the
camel's back of reserve and the fun
merged in a riot of humorous pas
sages extending the length of the
The editor, in company with Col.
Jack Pageler and John W. Long, took
in the big public sale of Jacob Contor,
four miles south of Ashton, Tuesday.
It proved tiie biggest sale, the big
gest crowd and one of the most suc
cessful of any of the sales so far this
season. There was a crowd estimated
at 250 persons, and the bidding was
brisk and generous. The stuff
brought something like $5,000 and
Col. Pageler had the great crowd in
the best humor and bidding the high
est one could wish. For instance,
cows brought as high as $85 to $87,
coming yearling calves at as high as
$27.50, while sucking calves brought
up to $13. Tiie hogs went lively at
about $25 to $27, while the horses
ranged from $60 to $140. In fact
everything went at most satisfactory
prices and Mr. Contor was immensely
pleased with the outcome. Our Col.
Pageler did hirasjlf proud in his sell
ing even to the smallest items, and
from all over the grounds could be
heard words most highly commenda
tory of his ability as an auctioneer.
Jack is certainly forging to the front

Knocks Printer s
Here is some pleasing dope for
newspapers, especially the last para
graph, which as you see provides that
no mercenary millionaire newspaper
shall run any risk of becoming a
multi-millionaire at the hands of any
candidate or set of candidates, and if
he says anything favoring any
candidate lie must do it for love only.
The first paragraph is that all politi
cal dope favoring any candidate shall
have at its head the words "Political
Advertisement”. Yet in reading the
two paragraphs, they seem to conflict,
in that the last paragraph denies the
right of the paper to receive any pay
for political matter favoring a candi
date, while the first paragraph defines
the action to be taken when articles
are paid for oi to be paid for. Evi
dently the Fillmore man lias been too
Heast.v in getting up his proposed law
and has things somewhat mixed:
"Ileasty of Fillmore has a bill which
provides that no publisher of a news
paper or other periodical shall insert
in his publication anv political
matter paid for, or to be" paid for,
which will tend to influence any
voter, unless that article has printed
in pica typa at tho head, ‘‘Pvilitical
Advertisement,” with a statement of
the amount paid therefor, with the
name and address of the candidate
and also the person authorizing the
publication and the author thereof.
Any person holding an office who re
ceives more than $300 salary or any
candidate for office who owns any in
terest in any newspaper shall file in
the office of the county clerk a state
ment showing how much financial in
terest he has in any newspaper pub
lishing any politial articles other
than provided for above.
No reporter, agent of a paper or
editor shall receive any compensation
from any candidate for office or prom
ise of any kind for publishing anv
article favoring his candidacy, and
any fraction of the above act shal 1
cause the infractor to be assessed a
fine of not less than $5 nor more than
To Be Given away
Beginning next week and running
fora couple of months the Northwest
ern places the gift of a Ford run
about within the reach of some wom
an, young lady or little girl absolute
ly free. They can get the auto with
out the cost of a dollar to themselves
if they getoutand work. The North
western has started a subscription
contest, the first it has ever made,
and all the winner has to do is to get
out and hustle for the necessary sub
scriptions that will give her the ma
jority of votes in the contest. Let
every one read the big announcement
on the eighth page of the paper and
find out what is necessary to secure
the auto. It is certainly worth try
ing for. Some one is bound to get
the fine little Ford runabout, and why
not you? The Ford has been pur
chased of A. C. Ogle and is now to be
seen at his garage. J ust think, win
ning a $565 auto without a cent of
cost for the same. And if you work
for votes, if you should even come out
second, third or fourth in the contest
there will be special prizes, to be an
nounced later, which will well repay
you for any sacrifice of time and
energy made. Next week we will
give further information regarding
the contest. In the meantime get
ready to enter the contest and be the
one who will be winner of an auto.
Easter comes this year on March
23, the earliest since the year 1858,
or in plain figures, the earliest in 55.
