Amite City, La.
In pursuance of a custom faithfully
observed the employes of The Com
moner met last night to celebrate the
beginning of ' the sixth year of that
periodical's publication. The celebra
tion this year was held at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Bryan, Nine
teenth and Washington streets, and
the fifty employes gathered early in
order to have as many hours as pos
sible. These gatherings are purely
informal and no set programs are per
mitted. The rule is to have the best
time possible in one's own way. At
the celebration last evening music
was "the chief feature ,and all the late
and many of the old songs were sung.
Mr. R. L. Metcalfe allowed himself to
become reminiscent and told some
stories of his school days, and Mr.
Farris and Mr. Maupin recalled some
incidents of their younger days and
related them for the benefit of those
who were not quite so old in years
but not a whit younger in spirits.
Mrs. Bryan served luncheon at
10:30. When this was disposed of the
music and story telling were resumed.
Master Silas Bryan entertained by
playing a few selections on the An-p-oiiiK.
and one of the young ladies
surprised her companions by dancing
an Irish jig in a manner tnat wouia
make a professional jealous. The
singing by Miss Edna Williams and
Mr. G'. H. Walters was. especially en
joyed. Misses Windmayer, Linn, Mil
ler and Horrell presided at the piano.
The only thing that marred tho
pleasure of tho evening was the neces
sity of breaking up so soon in order
to catch the last cars home. The
guests were unanimous in the declar
ation that last night's celebration was
just like all preceding ones in one re
spectit was the best they had ever
had. The annual celebration and the
annual picnic are two Commoner cel
ebrations that are always looked for
ward to with delightLincoln Dally
