j V 5 Yeaelt Subscription 1.00 "Financial problems are nuts and clover for demagogues." J. A. GARFIELD. H. S. Givlkr, Prop. TWENTY-FIRST YEAR.' WA.-KEEXEY, KAN., MAY 13, 1899. NUMBER 10. From Ogallah. Ed. World: Two incidents we have this week which we think worthy of note. ... First, the Sabbath School conven tion held last Sunday. Second, the social gathering at C. J. Anderson's Monday evening last. The convention was quite largely attended and mostly conducted by local talent, all of whom did well with the subjects assigned them. Rev. Brown addressed the meeting in a very entertaining way. The house was over crowded as is always the case whed we have something promising for the public. We are hoping that our people may ere long see the need of a more commodious building at this place than we now have. A number of the Wa-Keeney people did us the honor to attend. Come again, we are always glad to see you. The social gathering at C. J. Ander son's was in the nature of a surprise to Mr. Anderson and wife. May, the 8th, being the 20th year since their marriage. It was also an old fashion ed house warming. A double observ ance affair. All came with tilled baskets, and at 7 p. m. sat down to a bounteous supper served by the lady Kurprisers. . Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. George McKinlej'. Mr. and Mrs. John Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. San ford Powers, Mr. and Mrs. P. K. Linberg, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Yetter, Mr. and Mrs. Elias Burns, Mr. and Mrs. Swan - Lolstedi, and i host of children and youngsters that with their hilarity and sports made "oid Koine fairly howl." The new home was tastefully arranged and nicely decorated for the occasion, an evi dence to us that some one had given the tip of the approaching hosts. Af ter a couple hours of social enjoyment all repaired to the parlor where a huge set of handsome dishes seemed to be waiting to be presented. C. C. Yet ter was chosen to present the tokens " of regard which lie did in a creditable manner and plain enough to be thor oughly understood. Mr Anderson's response was well worded and showed a full appreciation of the kindly at tention shown him by neighbors and friends. Tins was a genuinely enjoy able and to all a most profitable occa sion which will be a pleasure to think about for many days to come. One of Them. Mt. Pleasant Review. (By Bllf Stubbs.)
