Interesting Event in Which Men Who

Participated.
Automobile races, city style, were the
special features of the Elks' rural jubilee
and barn dance yesterday afternoon at the
Benning race track, and a good-sized
crowd watched the horseless wagons do
the Marshal Collins' act. During the afternoon
and evening the rural village attractions
were well patronized, and the barn
dance was as great a success last night as
it was the night before. At the close of
the jubilee all who attended voted that the
initials of the Elks, B. P. O. E., stood for
"Best People On Earth" to entertain.
The event of the day was the ten-mile
race for gasoline cars listing at $:i,000 and

At the Barn Dance.
"By the groat horn spoon, that 'ere fiddlin'
just makes me want to shake out my feet,"
remarked Si, as he stroked his goatee and
watched the many couples trip the light
fantastic toe in the barn at Benning race
track yesterday afternoon and evening
during the progress of the rural jubilee and
barn dance under the auspices of the local
Klks. Si strolled in through the gate of the
race track yesterday along with several
thousands of others, most of whom do not
realize as well as Si does that milk does
not come from milk wagons and the public
pump.
"S'manthie, she just got a pesky notion
that she wants to come to town every
week, and being as she can't drive the
mare what's afraid of them there goldarned
horseless buggies, 'course I has to
come along. ' While she is gaddin' along
with 'Squire Perkins' wife, what has the
rheumatics so bad, I just thought I would
see if any mail had been sent to me."
As Si walked over toward the "Pohiek"
post office, which was the first attraction
on the grounds, he stopped to read again
the familiar sign which had been posted
there for some time. On one side of the
delivery window he read: "Male not called
for every day will be sent to Anycoster."
The other notice was as follows: "Notis?
Trains leaves for Skudunk every 23 minutes."
Si was met at the delivery window
by one of the handsome postal clerks,
with the same winning and sheckle-entic
ing smile mat nis iieiguuuis nave inuucu
to know at similar affairs in the city recently.
Si's jeans were lightened to the
extent of 10 cents, and a package, carefully
done up with ribbons and tissue
paper, was delivered to him.
"I'll bet that 'ere Congressman what tole
me my corn crop was the best In this county.
and he knows, 'cause he traveled all
over it, has got the government to send me
some seed," remarked Si, examining ttie
package. When he caught a glimpse of the

pocket with haste and refused to say what
he had received. But some one who happened
to be looking at Si at the time whispered
to the crowd around that the contents
had a yellow covering and Si's countenance
reminded <iim of the contents after he had
seen It.
Visit the General Store.
Si had an idea that he could paddle his
own canoe, until he went into the general
store, which occupied the prominent location
in the town next to the federal building,
where the post office and the village
blacksmith shop are located. But Si found
a new kind of paddle at the general store,
and he soon found that the whirl of a wheel
that occupied a prominent place was more
interesting than tne whirling of a reaperand-binder;
and he was making a rapid collection
of vases and Jardinieres, etc.. as the
result, when S'manthie happened to pass.
She had not been president of the foreign
missionary society of her church for nothing,
and she knew the w-heel was some
heathen device to separate her from the proceeds
of the farm labor.
Si was soon afterward seen going toward
the "barn" where the "fiddlin' " set him
thinking of his courting days, when HI and
Juke were also buzzing round "S'inanthie."
All the accessories of a barn were found
there. The hay and grain lofts were well
represented by the sheaves and bundles of
grain used In profusion overhead. There
was the load of hay at the entrance, and
over in one corner was the place for the
stock. The horses were-chewing hay from
the manger, the chickens were eating corn
and laying eggs, and there were cats, dogs
and other animals. Tlie barnyard adjoined,
where the cow cihewed her cud and others
in charge chewed the remnant of clothes.
Si took In the one-ring circus, which haj)paned
to be in town; he had to go because
S'manthie wanted to look in. and of course
he didn't want to go. He saw an excellent
performance. Including bareback riding,

wlio performed at the concert, which
was announced when the performance wan
"not half over yet."
