reason to hope that the future revenues

The Treadwell Club, last night, pre
sented a brilliant scene, when the
Fouudrymeu entertaiued at their Fifth
Annual Ball. The ball room was beau - j
tifully decorated in the Foundry colors '
blue and gold. On the stage in large
lettors, also of blue and gold, hang the
word "Foundry," which was a guaran- i
tee of general hospitality. Wasterlain's j
four-piece orche'stra gave good music,
and the floor, which was in perfect con
dition, wa9 crowded with merry danc
ers till au early hour this morning.
Many pretty costumes were noticed
among. the ladies. At midnight dainty
refreshments were served by the com-;
mittee consisting of Fouudrymeu, who
are to be congratulated on giving such
a splendid affair.
The Foundrymen wish to thank the
many friends who so generously dona- !
ted to their refreshments, and to Mr. I
Laffy, who superintended the decora I
tions, which were the finest ever seen
on Douglas Island, and, also, to George
Stephens and Alex Graham, who served
the punch throughout the evening.
They were all Germans.
A very prominent young musical
gentleman of Treadwell has had the
idea for a long time of taking unto him
self a wife, and, in conversation with a
young Scotchman from Glasgow, en
tered into an agreement with him to
get him a Scotch bride. The Scotty
wrote to the old country, and the pic
tures of three lovely looking young
ladies were sent out to him on a stamp
photo, which was given to the young
musical gentleman to choose from. He
put it in his pocket, and. being in the
ice cream parlor in Douglas, he dropped
it on the floor, where it was found the
next morning by the sweeper. The
; poor fellow felt so bad about losing the
picture that his friends had to persuade
the Under to give it back to him, so
that he would be able to continue bis
work. He evidently has set his mind
on having one of the three young lad
ies. He feels so elated these days that
almost all he can do is to whistle that
popular air, "Has anyone here seen
