Mr. Morch, "and as soon as the oil ar

chosen representatives of i both parties
met and contested for honors on the

seats, which, though accommodating
nearly 200. were altogether too few for the'
number that had congregated to watch
their champions attempt to be as funny
as they are reputed to be. In order to
provide sustenance as well as entertain

charged. IL.iough of a fund was acquired
to provide af sumptuous supper.

Rosborough made such a hit that he was
encored several times.
Mrs. Van Horn rendered a recitation*

"Dud" Dean. "Binky" McKinnon. Alex

excellence of their work. The affair was
a success and as every one had something
to' do with it. every one is happy. $
