BURNS CLIIB MEMBERS HAVE
FINE TIME AT ANNUAL MEET
The annual business meeting of the
Minot Burns Club was held at the
Elks Home Monday evening. Presi
dent A. J. McCannel in the chair.
Secretary John Stewart read the re
port of the activities of the club dur
ing the past year and the report of
the treasurer. Charles McKenzie,
showed that the finances of the or
ganization were in a particularly
healthy condition. The Club most
heartily endorsed the work perform
ed by the officers by re-electing Pres
ident McCannpl, Vice President D. A.
Dinnie, Secretary Stewart, Treasurer
McKenzie. Mesdames Win. Murray
and J. C. Smallwood, Sr., Ben Mc
Donald and B. E. Stewart were select
ed as members of the executive com
mittee. Following the election of of
ficers the evening was given over to
an improvised entertainment such as
only the lads and lassies of Bonny
Scotland can provide and this year's
"feast of reason and flow of soul" far
surpassed the expectations of the
membership in so far as the quality
of the numbers were concerned. Al
lan McDougall of Minneapolis with
his bagpipes regaled the members
with old familiar Scotch tunea, his
repertoire including practically every
one of the old time favorites. Miss
Virginia Kinney of Minneapolis, a
former Minot girl danced the High
land Fling to the accompaniment of
the bagpipes and responded to the
Secretary Minot Burns Club
hearty encores of the audience with
others of the popular dances includ
ing the famous sword dance, her work
thruout being in the highest degree
artistic and graceful. Mrs. Clyde
Swigart kindled the fires of remem-

brance among the members by sing
ing a couple ftouching melodies of
Scotland in an inimitable manner.
Miss O'Connor gave several readings
which delighted everyone present. She
won the hearts of all by responding
to repeated encores with such right
good will, which added materially to
the enjoyment of the entertainment.
Judge Murray was called upon for a
few remarks and responded with one
of the most scholarly addresses on
Scotland and the famous Bard of
Avon, that it has ever been the writ
er's good pleasure to hear. The
Judge lived for some time in the
Burns' home in Scotland and in 1872
was present at the burial of the last
remaining member of the Burns fam
ily, a son, whose remains were in
terred beside those of his father and
mother in the mausoleum at Dum
fries. Living in the immediate vicin
ity of the home of Burns he had many
recollections to recount and intimate
details to give of both the life of
Burns and the environments which
surrounded the brief period of the
Judge Murray also paid a splendid
tribute to the memory of William
Hetherton, whose recent death in
Scotland has cast a pall over the
Scotch people of this community
where he spent so many years of
active business life.
Miss Helen \yilson, daughter ,of
Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Wilson, clad in
the plaid and kilts of her clan, danced
the Highland Fling to the accompani
ment of the bagpipes—to her an in
novation because of her birth where
the sound of the piano is more famil
iar to her ears than the skirl of the
The Hon. James Johnson, denomin
ated "Shamus Mac Johnson", by
President McCannel who presided over
the festivities was then called upon
and spoke feelingly on the life and
works of Burns, the poet. Mrs. Alex
Scarlet one of the charter members
of the Minot Burns Club, whose de
lightful piano selections have char
acterized the meetings of the Club
at their annual meetings for years
favored the members with a medley
of Scotch airs.
The closing number was a tableau
by Miss Kinney, wherein this little
miss typified the "Living Flag". Dur
ing this number the members arose
and sang the national anthem, "The
Star Spangled Banner."
At midnight supper was announced,
the collation being served in the Elks'
Club dining hall in the basement which
had been tastefully decorated for the
occasion, festoons of red, white and
blue streamers being suspended from
the ceiling While innumerable hearts,
fairies and such like artistry in keep
ing with the day—Monday, St. Val
entine's Day—hung from the stream
ers just above each of the tables. But
it was not the decoration of the din
ing hall which attracted so much as
the many tempting Scotch delicacies
which the good ladies of the Club
had provided for the inner-man. May
hap the Scotch menu is somewhat ab
breviated, yet to the average member,
who, perhaps, was not a "native son",
it seemed that it would not be amiss
to devote at least one celebration to
commemorate the accomplishments of
the Scotch ladies who could compound
such splendid viands.
Prof. John Howard with his "feedle"
with Mrs. Howard as his accompanist
on the piano provided the music for
the members as they danced the hours
thru until the stroke of one when all
departed feeling that this year's an
nual gathering was one of the most
enjoyable the Club had ever spent.

The chance offered the league lead

when two bills were introduced in the
house. The first of these provides that
