The 14th Id Basic City.
St. Valentine's Day was duly eel-,
ebrated by the young people of Basic
at au entertainment given by the
Home Missionary Society at the resi
dence of Mr. Myers. The entertain
ment was entirely social in its charac
ter, and was gotten up by Miss Bald
win and other members of the com
mittee on entertainment. The parlor
and dining room had been profusely
decorated with hearts of various colors
and sizes, singly and in pairs. The
taste displayed in thus placing hearts
in view of all and in making it a hearty
occasion, was indicative of an adept
in dealing with that priceless jewel.
After the guests had all arrived
other hearts previously paired, apropos
the time, were pinned one to a gentle
man and one to a lady, on tbe back of
one of these were the words from a
familiar song; on the other were blanks
for the name of the songs. On the
face of one was a part of a name of a
song, on tbe other was the remaining
part. All having received their hearts,
they were informed that they were
expected to find their partners, and to
guess the names of the songs contain
ing the words on the back of tbe heart.
To the conple guessing the greatest
number of names a prize was awarded,
a beautiful souvenir spoon containing
a heait pierced by an arrow and tbe
words, "Basic City, Feb. 14, 1902."
In the course of his remarks Rev.
H. P. McClintic reminded the young
people that, although this is a time of
mating, "all that glitters is not gold,"
and admonished them to labor to
possess hearts pare as gold and as true
as the sterling silver in the spoon to
be delivered. After many other ap
propriate words, he caused the eves of
all to open wide by so pointing his
talk as to place each in a state of ex
pectancy. -But when all had been
severely tried, he announced the
names of tbe successful couple, Mr.
Charlie Henkel and Miss Fannie Bur
gess, and handed the spoon to Mr.
Henkel who gallantly presented it to
The booby prize was awarded to
those who, in the words of the speaker,
deserved It, Master Tommie McCrary
and Miss Emma Giles.
Another feature of the evening was
the sending of valentines. The lady
receiving the greatest number, Miss
Edna Coyner, was awarded a chain of
After much time had been consum
ed, ostensably in guessing the names
of songs, but doubtless really in guess
ing the way to a fair lady's heart, re
freshments were served much to the
relish of those engaged in such ardu
Strange to say nearly all appeared
to be well pleased with the pairing
that resulted from the matching of
hearts. In each case there were "two
souls with a single thought, two hearts
that beat as one. Among those paired
off were: Mr. C. P. Herring and Miss
Efße Humphreys; Mr. Oscar Newcomb
and Miss Loula Page; Mr. Emmett
Burgess and Miss Juanita Newcomb;
Mr. Herbert Baker and Miss Bettie
Rubush; Mr. Robert Page and Miss
Jessie McGhee; Mr. Arthurßusmiselle

"For nine years I bought everything
that was advertised as a sure cure for my
complaint, but it so happened that I did
not buy Peruna until nine months ago.
"After using your splendid remedy ac
cording to your directions I am today a
well man. I find Peruna to be the great
est family medicine ever discovered. I
■hall always keep a bottle of it on hand.
"I can candidly state that had it not
been for Peruna I would have given up
my position, being too weak to do my
work. For eighteen years life was •
burden."—Mr. William Flqod.
