Sara Gruniugcr were hostesses
last Friday at a one o'clock lunch
eon , at the charming1 home of
Mrs. StucUpy on the hill , just
north of town.
Invitations were issued to thirty
five ladies. In some way it
leaked out that Mrs. Stuckey was
celebrating * a birthday anniversay
that day. If Broken Bow ladies
are adepts in anything , it is in
arranging pleasant surprises ,
and Mrs. Stuckey was certainly
completely surpised when each
guest brought with her a lovely
cup and saucer as a tangible
proof of the best wishes of the
giver , for many , many happy re
turns of the day ,
The cups and saucers were
used at the elaborate five-course
luncheon , served by the. hostess ,
at daintily arranged small tables , "
scattered about in the reception
and dining room ,
Score cards answered the pur
pose of place cards , and were sug
gestive of Hallowe'en.
After luncheon , whist was
played at seven tables. All dur
ing the afternoon , delicious pine
apple punch was served from a
table in the hall way.
Mrs. Willing having the high
est score , was presented with a
large picture , by Miss Greningerf
who gave all the favors ; Mrs.
Homer Bruce received the consolation
lation favor , a Florentine frame ;
Mrs. E. C , House , having the
lowest score , received an up-to-
date "Dinah. "
The.guests were : Mesdames ,
Guttcrson , Rublee , Robertson.

late in the evening.
Altogether the affair was one

worthy of the honor , as Mrs.

among the state officers.

paper , folded several times and
tied with pink string and sealed
Then began a rummage
through garret , chest and trunk
for apparel to conform the com
mands of the invitations ; even
the "Old Clothes Man" must
have been appealed to from the
looks of some of the Rubes.
The opera house was decorated
with large bunches of grain and
cornstalks and a row of jack
o'llanterns answered the purpose
of footlights. There were jack
o'lanterns also on the piano.
Ilerr liube Professor Taylor

Last Saturday evening a party
of boys were out after the man
ner of youths on Hallowe'en ,
overturning outhouses and other
wise destroying property and
having a little "fun. " In their
rounds they paid a visit to the
Broken Bow business college and
proceeded to do things to the
property on the premises when
Roy Parker , who was cuscouncc
; n a buggy keeping lonely vigil ,
arose , in his might and began to
bombard the starry firmament
with a shotgun and at the same
time commanding in stentorian
tones that the depredators stop.
This the marauders failed to do
and the shooter concluded that
he would lower his gun and
throw up the dirt around their
feet. He failed to shoot low
enough and Ralph Bishop , one
of the crowd , received a load of
shot in the back of the head ,
back and armHe was assisted
to the home of Professor Cornell
where Dr. Penninglon was called
and removed a countless number
of shot from the person of Ihc
young man. Al Ihis wriling ho
is somewhat sore but well on the
road to recovery. Parker was
arrested Monday morning and
released under Si,000 bonds to
appear before the courts.
'The accident is regreUed by
all and while Parker had no
legal righl lo shoot , the boys
certainly had no legal righl lo be
lucre lo be shot. The con
servative sentiment of the cily

enough and points a moral which
should be heeded by all partici-
