i' ' TWENTIETH YEAR McCOOK , RED WILLO.W COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. JUNE 21 , 19OI. NUMBER 6
THE WEEK IN LOCAL SOCIETY.
r This has been a busy week in McCook
society , one function following another
in a whirl of bewildering gayety.
MRS. G. R. SNYDER ENTERTAINS.
Tuesday afternoon , Mrs. George R.
Suyder entertained a company of lady
friends graciously. Various games com
posed the social diversion of the after
noon. Refreshments were tastefully
served. A wealth of roses were the dec
orative feature of a delightful event.
MESDAMES HUPP AND KENDLEN.
Wednesday afternoon , Mesdames J. W.
Hupp and Frank Kendlen entertained
about fifty lady friends at a delightful
"swap" party , each guest bringing a
bundle , wrapped in mystery and the
necessary covering , w h i c h were
"swapped" among the ladies with much
merriment. Elaborate refresh in e n t s
were handsomely served.
MRS. A. P. BONNO.
Wednesday evening , Mrs. A. P. Benne
cleverly entertained the Au Faits and
Priscillas. As a social diversion the
guests were given cards containing
the names in "pied" form of various
flowers. A number guessed successfully ,
and Mrs. Joseph Menard won the prize
on the cutting. Refreshments dainty
were attractively served.
MRS. E. H. DOAN.
Thursday afternoon , Mrs. E. H. Doan
entertained about fifty guests very hap
pily. Games and other social amuse
R ments of a light sort were provided and
refreshments were elaborately served.
It was one of the social events of a lively
The Misses Norval entertained a small
company of Awl-O's , Tuesday evening ,
according to the usual Awl-Oian tradi
Mrs. Albert Barnett will entertain , to
morrow afternoon , in honor of Mrs. H.
L. Kennedy of Cambridge.
The game between Cambridge and
McCook , Thursday afternoon , was one
of the best ever played on the local
ground , McCook winning in the last
half by a score of II to 9. Up to the
close it looked as though Cambridge
must win , but some fortunate work by
Garvey and others with the st i c k
brought in four scores and won the game.
It was a fine game , enthusiastically sup
ported by rooters for both clubs. A
whole car-load of Cambridge people
came up with their favorites and the
locals "fans" were out in large and vo
ciferous numbers. Quite a base-ball
revival is the result of yesterday's game.
Eleven to One.
The game of ball played in our city ,
last .Saturday afternoon , between the
clerks of the store-houses of Lincoln
and McCook was rather one-sided , the
visitors making but one score while the
local aggregation piled up eleven to
their credit. The Lincoln team was
composed for the most part of smaller
men of less experience and skill than
the home combination , and victory came
easily for McCook. The visitors were a
fine lot of boys and played nice ball ,
"but it didn't count , " as a McCook
player expressed it.

Dr. Williams wishes to again impress
ipon our readers that he will not charge
or consultation , as he positively refuses
o take any case without first making a
ireliminary examination for his own
icnefit. Thisis certainly very cornmend-
ble , as it shows that the doctor is maser -
er of his profession and will not accept
case in which he is not sure he can ,
icrfect a cure.
