Dr. W. II. Washington entertained
a number of his friends Monday ev

who attended spent a very enjoyable
evening. A very exhaustive discus
sion of the recent train robberies and
feats of the yoggnum formed an end

point of argument bringing on the
advisability of carrying concealed
artillery. After mature consideration,

repast which was served, it was con
cluded by a large majority, the vote
being carried over Dr. Washington's
veto, that it would be safest to leave
the Weapons at home as a strategic
measure to avoid their capture. Those
enjoying the hospitality of Dr. Wash
