The box supper here last Friday
evening was a grand ?dccess. Quite
a corwd was present, being largely
composed of friends from towns and
the adjoining sections, whose liberal
ity on this occasion is highly appre
ciated by the people of our commu
nity. The beautifully decorated
boxes came in numbers, and by 8
o'clock a huge many-colored pyramid
was formed on a table on the ros
trum, and we feel quite sure that the
rich interior of each box (with but
one exception) measured up fully to
the expectation suggested by the
beautiful exterior. Although no pro
gram had been arranged for the au
dience ot lier't ban the auction of the
boxes, the audience. Immediately be
fore the sale opened we,re delight
fully entertained by tho 'recitations
"The Sale of Old Bachelors," hy Miss
Annie Hu trek in, and "That Old
Sweetheart of Mine," by Miss Suanee
Daly, of Seneca. At 8 o'clock S. M.
Shanklin In his own inimitable, witty
and jocular style, began lo auction ?
the boxes. Misses Sallie Davis and
Dana Cleveland were selected as trea
surer and collector, Hie latter acting,
In the capacity of both deliverer and j
collector. Every box brought its full
value, the proceeds amounting to
$3(j.t>0. One box, we must say, sold
at a premium, and shows the ad
vanced price of cabbage bought at
Richland at perhaps 2 cents a pound
wholesale and sold here at 75 cents
per head. Tho advertisement, how
ever, Is probably in Seneca's favor, aa
the purchaser, having paid the ex
hothltant price, Bag(ged) bis pre
mium well, and in order to promote
further grov, th and development of
