Last week the senior paid a hasty
visit to our sister city. Chapman. He
found the town in a rapid stale of im
provement, a large number of houses
going up, among them a $25,000 stone
Catholic church, and a vast amount of
business. The most prominent of the
business men were the Naill Brothers,
who are handling on an average 2,000
bushels of wheat daily at their larce
elevator. "While in Chapman he added
twenty names to the already large Jist
of subscribers to the Reflector at
that place, with the promise of as
many more when he calls again. Thus
it can be seen that the Reflector is
booming and our business men cannot
afford to ignore the fact.
The Catholic Banquet.
The banquet given by the Catholic
society last Thursday evening, in Mc
Inerney Hall, was the biggest thing of
the kind Abilene has seen for a long
time, and the Hall was royally dedica
ted. The supper was patronized and
enjoyed by an immense crowd. The
large delegation from Solomon, headed
by genial Jb ather Leary, helped to make
the affair a succsss. The Solomon boys
came down to take home with them the
necklace which was offered to the most
popular young lady in the hall, but they
duln t. Misses Como, Baker, Ternll,
Hart, Robb and Mclnerney are Abilene
girls, and almost $100. worth of votes
had been cast before Miss Ella Morgan
was put in nomination by Solomon par
ties. Then the fight was between the
two towns, Abilene, or rather Messrs.
John and Pat Berry, concentrating on
Miss Annie Hart. On the last round
the money was deposited in boxes bear
ing the names of the young lady con
testants, and the result showed that
Solomon had weakened on the home
stretch, while Abilene, accepting the
challenge in good faith, came to the
front with $1 7S.00. The total number
of votes, at five cents a vote, was GS81,
divided as follows: Miss Como, 90;
Miss Baker, 430; Miss Hattie Terrill,
12S9; Miss Annie Hart, 4340; Miss
Florence Robb, 20; Miss Mollie Mcln
erney, 140; Miss Ella Morgan, 572.
After the result was declared the hall
was cleared for dancing, and the "wee
sma' hours'' grew very small before the
breaking up of the party. The finan
cial result was very satisfactory to the
managers, about $300.00 being cleared.
