That Hallow' een Party.
The I-ndics' Art Club of llus city
cm compliment itself and have the
satisfaction of knowing that it gave
more than one hundred people sne of
the most pleasant and unique flal
low'een parties that has ever been
given our citizens, and will long be
remembered as one o! the really
pleasant evenings, enjoyed by all. If
any failed to have a good time it was
that one's individual fault, for every
provision was made for a pleasant
time by those in charge. Kvery one
invited was requested to come masked
and nearly every me complied. The
diversity of masks, suits and general
get up's to deceive, snowed a won
derful ingenuity in the brains of those
attending. There probitdy never
has been a mask p.irty given in this
city where so tinny were able to
deceive every body cKe. The in isk s
were so complete that many, in fact
nearly every one, was surprised to
find, when they unmasked that the fel
low that they thought was somebody
else, was found to be some body else.
The ladies had decorated the
Opera House, where the entertainment
was given, in a way that would make
old "Halloween" himself, puff up
with pride, even tiiough he has had
many things done in his mine tint
caused him much sorrow, as well, is
causing many other people much
sorrow and inconvenience. Most of
the decorations wen- aii'iiinn leaves,
and arranged with much tast'j and
beauty. Most of the evening was
spent by each one in trying to find
out who the other party might be and
at the same time deceive thai other
party as to his or her identity .
About ten-thirty, the "(Irani!
March" was called for. Kveryhody I
paired oil with s wi'j other b dy and
after meandering iround awhile, the
whole crowd lined up ami unmasked
This was the moment of surprises
and there were in, my real surpnses.
After the unmasking, refreshements
were served nn h as sweet cider,
pumpkin pie, ginger ra.e Vc. In
every way this entertainment was a
gr in I success and will long he
remeinpered by those attending, as
one of the pleasant spots of life. The
Lidicsol the Art ('lull are to be com
mended and will long be remembered
for this pleasant Halloween party and
i.l hope they may try the same tl mg

INTO THE UNION AT LAST
For the first tune in fifty-one years
a United States ll.ig was raised yes
terday on lit-; courthouse in Liberty,
City county. And the man who hoisted
the Hag yesterday was the same one
who unfurled a Confederate Hag from
the same courthouse in IfjfJI,
In the first year of the Civil War
ohn W. Hall, a soldier in the brigade
of (Jen. Sterling I'rice. hoisted a Con
ederatc llag over the courthouse.
Shortly afterward a ompany of
Keder.il troops drove out the Confed
erates, hauled down the Confederate
and hoisted a United States llag in its
place. It flew there until the Federals
went away. Since them no flag has
been flown to the brcee from the old
ourthoiise until yesterday, and the
flagstaff, exposed to the elements, I
gradually rotted and finally fell down.
Recently the Daughters of the
American Revolution in Liberty per
suaded the county court to put up a
new (Ingstall and to buy a new llag,
and Mr. Hall, who yet lives in Libery
and is state commander of the United
Confederate Veterans, was asked to
officiate as the flag raiser and he
consented. The event was adver
tised throughout the county and yes
terday a large crowd gathered to see
Mr. Hall hoist the flair.
The llag will be kept in the court
house and every holiday will see it
fluttering. Kansas City Star, Nov. 4.

SCHOOL OF INSTRUCTION.
A Masonic School of Instruction
will be held in Masonb Hall, Versailles
on Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
day and night session, by Grand
Lecturer . R. McLachan, Kahoka,
Mo. All Master Masons are expected
and earnestly invited to be present
and help in the work so far as it is
convenient. Versailles Lodge, No
it 7, A. F. and A. M. is right at the
head in doing good work, fair woTk,
square work and with Past Master R.
Q. Kcllcy, who has been honord with
the appointment of Deputy Grand
lecturer and Deputy Grand Master,
to exemplify the work and preserve
the ancient landmarks. No. 1 1 7 will
stay on the firing line all the time.
Grand Master Lampest had prom
ised to be present, but owing to the
death of his sistes he had to cancel
Mr. Yoakum's table showing what
the treasures of the garden cost at the
initiative point, where they start to
market and what they cost the con
sumer who makes the final purchase
fill us with fruitless repinings ; for
how can the accepted order of their
transferanee from one hand to another
ever be changed? And each rank

What is use of heeding the advice,
back to the soil? For the watei
melon that you plant, water, defend
ed from beetles, slugs and bad boys,
brood over by day and sentinel by
night with shotgun (or four wcaiy
months, you receive 5c.
Othei piople grow into magnates,
pun base automobiles, take summer
trips, open champagne and make
much of life on the others 65 cents.
While in the end hopeless ultimate
consumer pays 70c and then the
melon may be green and flhaci him
with the cholic.
