He may have de cided to spend the winter here-we do not know, but the records show that he is usually on the job. Sunday at 11:00 o'clock a ten pound boy arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Romero, and now J .R. is making a noble effort to assume an air of parental dignity--to look like father. Wednesday that same stork left a ten pound girl at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Peters. We are pretty reliably informed that at the exact time of the bird's arrival Mr. Peters was out hunting the stork-trying to get in touch with him and inform his majesty that his heart was set on a boy, too. In bdth instances these arrivals are the first born and the proud parents I have the congratulations of the entire community. BOX SUPPER GIVEN ON HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS Last Friday night a number of the young folks of the community, at tendlants of the Welsh high school held their moonlight box supper and pic nic on the high school campus.

The senior class of the Welsh High School was entertai.ned by the Junior class at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Bradbury Tuesday night with a Hallowe'en party. The house was decorated in the col ors of these classes and as the guests arrived they were received by weird ghosts who moaned their welcome to Sthe seniors. After this they entered into a ghostly room where the mother ghost told their fates. Next a cab bage and pumpkin race was enjoyed I on the lawn, the winners receiving beautiful prizes-sugar candy. Ghost stories were then in order as they as sembled in a ghostly den around the witches fire. Refreshments were served in true Hallowe'en style and the guests de I parted with many groans of thanks to the Juniors.
