HURLEY, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, JANUARY
The eighteenth annual masqued
ball given by the Hurley Rebekah
Lodge was put on last Thursday
This masque ball is considered the
social event of the season in Hurley
and all of them have beeu successes
both socially and financially, thus
reflecting much credit on the lodge
and on the committees having them
The one held last Thursday night
was perhaps the most brilliantly
successful of any event ever staged
in Hurley. From 8 o'clock until 12
the floor was covered by a jolly
crowd, in-the most fantastic garb
imaginable courtiers danced with
negresses, staid clerical looking
gentlemen made ardent love to
western girls and ballot dancers,and
the devil walzed with the nun. The
prizes were awarded to Laura Lak
ings, impersonating a negress and
Joe Coughlin the French chef.
Following the unmasking, was
supper superintended by Mrs. D. C.
Ward, which is'a guarantee in itself
that everything was satisfactory.
The balance of the evening—or
rather morning was spent in dancing
The music- furnished by the Buker
Brothers and Miss Irene Graves was
excellent and much appreciated.
Everyone present enjoyed them
selves to the limit and much credit
is due*those in charge for the har
monious success of the affair.
