The presents were nu The Firemen's Masquerade The masquerade ball given last Friday night at Firemen's hall by Hope Lodge No. 7, D. of H.. was the largest attended, and it is safe to say the most highly en joyable affair in the dancing line that has taken place in Philipsbure this season. At 8:30 the masquers began to arrive and until 10:80 there was a con tinual rush. There were in all about fifty couples present and probably a couple of hundred spectators. In fact the hall 'was so crowded that it was difficult at times to do much dancing. There were but twenty-three couples in the grand march, but it was neverthe less very attractive and amusing. When the hour for unmasking arrived almost every masker was on the floor, and much merriment ensued when the masks were doffed and the disguised ones made known to all. The supper served at the Kaiser house by the ladies of the Degree of Honor was one of the best ever served in the city. Many compliments were re. oeived by the ladies having charge of the dining room. Taken altogether the mae. auerade was a highly creditable pro. action for a place the size of Philips. burg, and coupled with the eeneral good humor that seemed to prevail among all those present, the affair was conceded a dePded success, and if one failed to en joy himself it was his own fault.
