J. E Mellecker,
A crowd of gay young people,
From the vicinity of B ,
Started out last Friday night
Upon a dancing spree-
It was a jolly crowd,
In number one and nine,
Who hailed from all professions,
School teachers in the line.
Now, they were all together.
Within a prairie schooner.
If they had gone some other way
They might liavc got there sooner.
But time, to them, was nothing.
Thev did not care for that.
One of their sad misfortunes
Was Billy lost his hat.
We were thinking and commenting
On misfortune and bad news,
When our informant told us
That Mandie lost her shoes.
Then there was still another,
Perhaps not so great a grief,
Several of this gay party
Had lost a handkerchief.
But we no more will mention
The loss of this gay group.
For, to say the best ou can,
Tncy all were in the soup.
Then, there's another joke
That's most too good to keep.
While they were coming home
Young Jehnnie went to sleep.
You bet your bottom dollar,
I'll guarantee you'll win it.
There is not one among them
Will own that be was in it.

J. Collar's Christmas ad appears in this
issue of The Times. Mr. Collar is one of
those merchants who believe in having
and keeping everything of the latest and
most approved style in his line of goods.
True, it takes money and experience to
carry a line of goods large and varied
enough to supply the wants of such, a
trade as he has, but this Mr. Collar is
abundantly able to furnish. A look
through his large and elegant establish
ment on Front street, reveals the fact that
he hRS bought a stock consisting of Or
gans, Pianos, Banjos, Guitars, Harmoni
cas, etc.; Parlor Suit, Bedroom Suits,
Chairs of every know n style and make.
Pictures and Picture Frames in eudless
variety, and, in fact, evetything In the
furniture and musical line that there is
likely to be a demand for, which, for
elegance, variety and prices, is seldom
equalled and necr excelled by any tur
aiture house in southwestern Kansas.
Mr. Collar has especially selected his
stock for the holiday tiade, and. If we
are to judge by the busy scene which
greeted our entrance to his store last
week, he will h ave no trouble in dispos
ing of his stock.
The next county teachers' association
will be held in Speareville Saturday, De

ite romantic drama "Enoch Arden," in
which "Ned" Adams, once the idol of

waa wont, a quarter of a century ago, to
make large drafts on their tear-furnishing
capacity. Everybody knows the ex
travagantly sentimental story of Tenny

Beers intends to give the romantic old
play asetting in accord with the advanced
stage taste of the day such, indeed, as
it has never bad. Besides this a large
number of songs will be introduced,
trained vocalists hnving been engaged,
