M ANY "smokers" have been given
in the city of Butte by the vari
ous orders, and to the Elks
has belonged the title of
"King of Entertainers." But they were
indeed partly robbed of that title last
Wednesday evening by the Independent
Order of Foresters, who gave the best
and most unique entertainment ever pre
sented by a lodge in this city. Those who
were fortunate enough to be there will
ever have good cause to couple the name
of Court Silver Seal Independent Order
of Foresters, with one of the most enjoy
able evenings of their life. Muntzer's
hall was crowded to its utmost capacity,
many having to stand during the entire
evening. Chief Ranger J. Nat Londoner
presided. He announced each number
on the programme and kept the refresh
ment committee active. The first num
ber was a selection by a mandolin, club
composed of Messrs. Ray, Bosch. Jud
Bosch, Fred Orem and George Robie.
The members of the club fairly outdid
themselves and received encore after en
core, to which they were compelled to re
spond. They were followed by Mr. M. S.
Burns, who, in a very happy and pleasing
manner, delivered the address of wel
come. He said that while the Foresters
could not lay claim to the title of being
the "best people on earth," they certainly
ranked next to them, and before the hour
hand on the clock had traveled very far,
they indeed made good his assertion. Mr.
W. F. Watters, Will Tague and A. C.
Pease were next called upon, and sang
some very fine songs. The inimitable S.
B. Loveridge kept the hall in a continu
ous uproar for almost an hour with his
quaint New England stories. The versa
tile members of the Mandolin club were
called upon, and they again enchanted
their hearers by rendering several beau
tiful songs. Prof. Murray, a local ma
gician, performed countless sleight-of
hand tricks, giving a very clever exhibi
tion of the mystic art. After a few min
utes intermission, Chief Ranger Landoner
arose and in a very modest manner said
he had been requested to read "The Seven
Ages" from Shakespeare. No one had
any idea from the timorous announce
ment what was in store for them, and
when Mr. Londoner had finished the ap
plause was deafening. Then followed
many songs, stories and recitations. Not
only the event of the evening, but what
proved to be a genuine artistic treat, such
as is seldom seen in Butte, concluded the
evening's entertainment. Chief Ranger
Londoner announced that another re
quest had reached him—this time to give
an impersonation of Mansfield as Dr.
Jykel and Mr. Hyde; and while he was
not prepared he would do the best he
could under the circumstances. It is
needless to say very much, as Mr. Lon
doner is well known in Butte, but it is a
question whether Richard Mansfield
could have done any better; and for some
time after Mr. Londoner stood upon the
platform receiving the congratulations
of his many friends. As the people were
leaving the ball the Mandolin club ren
dered a march and on every side could be
beard expressions of delight, and nothing
but words of praise for the Independent
Order of Foresters. •
Rabbi Maurice Eisenberg, whose ability
as a portrayer of Shakespearean litera
ture is well known in Butte and othei
cities of Montana, is preparing to give a
series of Shakespearean recitals in Butte.
A few days ago he entertained the people
of Dillon and the Tribune of that city
contained the following complimentary
notice: "Shylock was re-created for all
who listened to Rabbi Maurice Eisen
berg's lecture on Tuesday night. Despite
the storm, a large number gathered in
the Baptist church and had the weather
been twice as severe they would have
been well rewarded for their temerity in
facing the elements. The speaker held
his auditors spellbound; his vocabulary
seemed inexhaustible, and his imagina
tion painted fascinating word pictures,
and altogether it was an intellectual treat
and an inspiration to the study of Shakes
peare and an exhibition of the glories of
our tongue."
Mrs. John B. Wellcome complimented
a number of young people with a card
party on Wednesday evening. The occa
sion was one of thorough informality.
The ladies' first prize was captured by
Mrs. Eugene Carroll; the winner of the
gentlemen's prize was Mr. ^lort White.
The second prizes were won by Miss
Hensley and Mr. William D. Burbage.
At the conclusion of the games at cards
dancing was indulged in, concluding with
a most enjoyable old-fashioned cake
walk. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs.
Eugene Carroll, Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Ham
ilton, Mr. and Mrs. George B. Dygert,
Miss Mai Pfouts, Miss Daisy Dawson,
Miss Helen McKechnie, Miss Olita Hens

Trerise, Mr. Mort White.
I.ast evening a. very pleasant surprise
party was given Miss Annie Chellew by
about a score of her young friends, at
her home, 710 North Montana street. The
young folks passed the evening very en
joyably with games and singing. About
midnight refreshments were served. The
party broke up about 2 a. m. Those pres
ent were: Misses Annie Chellew, Agatha
Richards. Gertrude O'Donnell, Gertrude
Evans, Blanche Reed, Annie Bartle, Mag
gie O'Conners, Carrie Phillips, Lillie Rey
nolds, Emily Thomas. Lizzie Hardiman;

George Van Wart, Dan McLeod, Percy
May, Will Chellew, Albert Evans.
A very pleasant and somewhat novel
entertainment for Butte was a promen
ade concert given by the Home Forum
Benefit Order at Scandia hall last Mon
day evening. The promenade commenced
at 9 p. m. Between every dance singing,
recitations, fancy dancing by young
ladies in costumes and duets were ren
dered so that it made the evening one
continuous pleasure; and while some
were listening to the singing and some
dancing, others were partaking of the
bounteous banquet in the adjoining room.
There being no cessation to the enjoy
ment, the evening passed so quickly it
was morning before those present real
ized it: and every one wanted to know
when the order would give another.
At the Woman's club on Wednesday a
very enjoyable afternoon was spent. The

Mrs. Wright had on exhibition at the

Perhaps the leading public social func

hall on the 20tli inst. The Knights of
Pythias are legion in Butte, numbering
many of the most prominent gentlemen
socially and commercially in the com
munity. Their annual ball has always
been an elegant affair, and already there
has been quite a demand for tickets. Al
though the tickets for gentlemen (ladies
being- admitted free) are only SI, they
are in the hands of the Knights who, of
course, restrict the sale to only gentle
men of character, thus assuring the pub
lic of a high class affair in every par
