At the beautiful home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. H. Cavanaugh the XX
fiye hundred club was delightfully
entertained last Saturday night.
It being New Year's Eve the
rooms were decorated with bells
and greenry. In the front parlor
a Christmas tree was daintily dec
orated and brilliantly illuminated,
and upon this tree the " players
found their cards signifying the
table and couple. Attached to
these were tiny toy watches with
which the hostess informed her
guests were to watch the ''old
year out" and the "new year1' in.
As progressions were made the
progressor was given a tiny bell
with red ribbon and these were
attached to t,he watch chain. The
lunch was extremely dainty and
appetizing, The hostess was as
sisted by Mrs. M. F. Cavanaugh
, ;The gifts for progressions were
awarded to Mrs. J. W. Baughman
and Mr.. L. C. Yocum. The
guests' prizes were won by Miss

One of the most enjoyable af
fairs that has taken place during
the holidays was the Modern
Woodmen supper at Arkalon
Saturday night. A fine supper
was served by the Woodman to
about one hundred including Wood
men and their families and invited
guests. A short program was
rendered which was greatly enjoy
ed by all. After the Old Year
passed out and the New Year was
urshered in all departed for their
homes wishing all a Happy New

Judge Thompson was greatly
pleased to receive as a Christmas
present a very fine little congratu
latory note frem Governor Judson
Harmon of Ohio. Judge Thomp
son has met the governor frequent
ly at Charlevoix, Michigan, where
the Ohio statesman spends his va
cation fishing. He told Judge
Thompson he was glad to hear of
the latter's reelection, and hoped
to meet him again at Charlevoix
next summer. Inasmuch as the
governor is almost the leading and
logical candidate for the demo
cratic presidential nomination in
1912 and Judge Thompson has
further political honors, there
would be nothing inconsistent with
a modest little fishing expedition
next summer when matters of na
tion and state as .pertaining to
democracy would be discussed.

Domestic Science Club.
The Domestic Science Club met
at the home of Mrs. L. A. Etzold
last Wednesday afternoon. Mrs.
Etzold and Mrs. Todd were hos
tesses. Owing to the cold weather
and the freezing of the compressed
yeast the bread contest was not
called for. We hope to hold the
contest at our next meeting. We
are also making plans to furnish'
each member of the club with a
cake of compressed yeast and five
pounds of flour; each member will
have the same kind of yeast and
flour with which to work
so that the contest will be one of
skill and care and good judgment.
Bread is the staff of life and the
ability to make a splendid loaf of
bread is an accomplishment to be
proud of. The club will hold its
next meeting two weeks hence, at
the home of Mrs. - Dr. Nichols,
Wednesday, January 18th.
The recent cold storm with all
its severity will yet prove a bless
ing in disguise by the distruction
of typhoid germs that accumulate
by the trillion upon the many
dumping grounds that surround
this beautiful busy city of Liberal.
Then again the dust has, formed a
covering, as it were, over each
and all the dead debris, as . if to
impress on the mind of man to get
rid of these dumpage grounds that
do so injure our city. Citizen.

The Shops to Move.
What appears to us to be a well
grounded rumor is being slipped
around those who usually know to
the effect that the shops at Dal
hart are to be moved to Liberal.
The railroad is almost coming up
to the expectations of people here,
and the proposition may soon be
put up to the citizens of the town.
The repair shops employ from 50
to 75 men. The addition to the
town will no doubt be procured, if
Liberal is given a chance at it.

good corn coming in. The price
is a little stronger this week.
