Roanoke is a humming, hustling city.
A great stream of humanity is con?
stantly rushing along its principal
thorough tares in counter currents.
Everybody is on business bent in the
varied and manifold avocations of liTe.
Hut the incessant business tension can?
not bo forever kept up.
Thero must bo sonio .relaxation, and
there aro to be found in Roanoke many
social and intellectual organizations,
whose aims and purposes aro to Ollgago
in short hours of pleasuro and profit,
which does not at all detract from the
business qualifications of their members,
but only enables them to work all the
better when returning to their routine
duties.
Ono of the most profitable of all Un?
social clubs of'tbo city is the Roanoke
Musical Society, which is only of recent
growth, the organization having been
perfected last September.
Tho officers of t he society tire: Paul
Ooornor, A. ('. M., musical director; ?).
C. Cook, president, and Daniel Hitler,
secretary and treasurer.
The society's hall is on the south?
east corner of Salem avenue and Henry
streets.
At present, the organization has a
men's chorus, but, possibly in a few
months it will haVOestablished a mixed
chorus.
The. instrumental section will stari
in January next with six instruments.
Including all the instruments needed to
render a good class of chamber music,
except a cornet. A cornet, player would
he a great and welcome accusation to
the musical society.
The. total membership of these follow?
ers of Molpomine is twenty,seven.
Captain Charles Lyle is president of
tho Roanoko Dancing club, and 11. s.
Roberts is vice-president. The exec?
utive committee contistsof .1. 11.1 tarl.
Lee H. Simmons and It. H. (Ireider.
Roanoke has had a dancing club for
about six years, and tho present, organi?
sation is the lineal sncci ssor to tho Hr. t
one established. It has on its roll
thirty members.
The Rorer Hark Literary Society is
an institution which also has added the
customary pleasure features, such as
dancing and whist parties.
The officers are B. Hond, prosldcnt:
Mrs. Charles Irwin, v ice-president, and
"Mrs. E. Hond. secretary and treasurer.
The oxcciltlve committee consists of
Harry Warner, Hugh i'ry and Mr. Har?
lot t.
The St. Andrews Society has probably
the largest membership of any of Un?
social organizations in Roanoke. The
members now on its roll reach up as
high as 185. The organization is com?
posed largcy of the young people of the
Catholic Church and is now about three
(years old. While it is largely a liter?
ary organization, it also has added be?
nevolent and charitable features. It
gives entertainments once every month,
the proceeds of which aro devoted to
charitable purposes.
The officers of the St. Andrews Society
are.I. H. lirlan, president; John McDor
I mott, vice-president; John Carr, secre?
tary and A. Sau tor, treasurer. The
board of managers consists of R. M,
Casey, Councilman John Shoehan and
A. Sauter.
Tho Clover Club is one of the loading
literary societies of Roanoke. It was
organized about, a year ago as the
Shakespeare Club, but, desiring to
widen its held of literary study and not
confine itself to one author, it was de?
cided that a change of name was also
necessary, and consequently it is now
called the Clover Club.
Tho meetings of the society are held
every Monday night at the residence of
Mrs.Stone, on Church street. The club
has now twenty members, all being of
tho most literary, intellectual and ac?
complished pooplo of Roanoke. More
interest is manifested by the members
than over before, and the club is doing
hotter work than at any time, in its
his.ory.
The officers of tho club aro C. E.
Crave president. and Miss M. F.
Stonr j&crotary.
A- /her society, whoso purpose, is
ilia y to furnish enjoyment to those
who engage in tho "maizes of tho
i dance," is the Junior German Club.
Tho president is Warren Well ford;
tho vice-president, Hubert Elliott; the
treasurer, Fred (1. Dennett; and tfie sec?
retary, Austin No'al. Tho executive
committee consists of tho officers of the
club with It. Ij, Wright, Austin Wood
son, C. A. Carpenter lind lohn Trout.
The membership of tho club consists
of about thirty-live of the lending socie?
ty young men of the city Its germans

The production oC, laughter by arti-!
flclal means, it is thought, can bo re?
duced to a science now that the discov- i
cry of a plant, the properties of which j
aro a direct incentive to laughter, has J
been made. Any amount of each inn a
tion can he produced by simply in?
creasing or diminishing t he laugh-pro
ducing dose.
There was a time when the somnolent
i effects produced by the poppy wore not
I generally known, but tins soporlio prop- j
. erties of this plant are now beyond
' cavil and in a short time it is OXDCCtod
that Prof. Salchi will have a crop of
j the laugh-producing plants largo enough
for practical experiments. The now ;
almost unknown plant, will soon become
! a staple article of commerce
. principal cereal cultivated in many a )
vaStgardon will be the laughter-produc
