Proceedings as 3Zeard by tke
Ilan Dueler the Bed,
The reporter for The Herald hav
i’lo wind of an intended meeting
of the Chewing Gum Club, which
took place Tuesday night, succeeded
in bribing one of the members to
conceal him in some portion-of (he
house that he might be enabled to
give to our thousands of readers this
morning the deliberations of that fair
assembly. He (our reporter) was
concealed under a bed in the room
wheie the club met, and his situation
can better imagined than described.
Promptly at the appointed hour
the President, Miss A. ctiled the
meeting to order, and declared as
there was no one present “to molest
or make them afraid,” they would
proceed to business.
Miss J. ottered a resolution in
structing the treasurer to purchase
enough gum to run the meeting,
which resolution received the hearty
approval of ail present.
The Sweet Singer of Kansas was

the ground that she thought the
money in the trea-«ry should be used
in giving a leap ye.*r party.
As-the members were entirely out
of gum. Miss S-s. move fell still born,
so ’o speak.
Ir. jiue time the Sweet Singer re
turned with the necessary gum, and
happiness was depicted tipon the
countenances of art present, save the
reporter In a few moments the
walls presented a picturesque and
animated scene. Here and there
could be seen the shadow of some
t;<ir one’s jaw working with the ra
pidity ot lightning. During this
“chewing levee,” which lasted some
time, silence reigned supreme, and
our reporter was compelled to hold
his breath to avoid being unceremo
niously bounced. He praved that a|
mouse might appear and brake that ,
silence, but he (the mouse) came not; ;
nothing could be heard except the!
tick"’of the clock, which brought to
the minds ot the members that the
“night was growing old ’ and had
already readied that hour when
“graveyards vawn ” It was probiblv
this thought atone that caused them
to huddle together in the middle ot
the room, which gave our reporter
a clear, view of all that was going on.

The President in attempting to re
move the piece ot gui« from her
mouth came near dislocating that
member which is vulgarly called her

her life was saved.
The Fn siitent appointed a commit
tee of five on resolutions. who made
the following report :

shall di.ulge the proceed i ng- of any
meeting ot this club shall bo expelled

Mii? 11. objected to the above, but -
her moved was “nipped in the bud,” •
and the resolution adopted.
The committee on leap year party
retired and chewing was resumed.
The committee made th* following
report :

young men of this city a dispasition
to hold themselves aloof of our sex ;

Resolved, That in order to make
this party what it should be, that
each member be assessed $1 35.
And be it further resolved, That

puted right to devote her entire time
to any one young man, and any mem
ber who shall disturb another while
enjoving this right, shall be fined $25
as such disturbance may be instru
mental in breaking oft* a match.
The above resolutions were adopt
ed amid great enthusiasm.
Miss J. moved to adjourn, but this
motion was lost.
Miss M. moved that all gum now
on hand bo equally divided among
the members.
this motion was carried with a
jell, and the joy of the members
knew no bounds.
Joy unspeakable! Rapture sweet!
The motion to adjourn prevailed, and
if was long after the “wee sma ho urs’
when our reporter wrapped his mar
tial cloak around him and laid down
to dream of gum am] “sich.”
