One of the prettiest social events
yet witnessed In Meeker was the
Leap Year dance given Thursday
night by the Dancers' club—the last
of what has proved to be a very pleas
ant series. The usual order of things
was reversed, and much merriment
ensued. The hall was attractively
decorated for the occasion. Mr. Clou
tftsr and the ladies’ committee work
ed hard to make the danoe a success,
and their efforts were rewarded by a
thoroughly pleased atteodanee.
A Threatening Blaze
Tbs fire which destroyed the bunk
house tn the rear of the Meeker hotel
last Friday night, looked dangerous
for .a time, owing to tbs headway It
bad attained before discovery and
tbs slowness in getting water on the
Tbs boys responded promptly
enough, but tbs first three firs plugs
approached were found to be frosen.
Finally connection was mads with
plug corner Fifth and Market and
tbs firs was quiokly extinguished,
but the building (a frame structure)
owned by B. 8. BaM of the Meeker
hotel, and contents, was totally de
stroyed. It consisted of two rooms
and was occupied as sleeping quart
ers by the hotel porters—Harry Sher
wood, Ed Youngs and Harry Eok
There was a heating stove in eaoh
room; the boys went to their quart
ers between 9 and 10 o’clock; started
fires and then all three retired to one
of tbs rooms to play sards; a biasing
firs was evidently soon communica
ted to the adjoining wood - work;
the room was a mass of flame when
the firs was discovered.
Tbs fire was undoubtedly the re
sult of carelessness on the part of the
boys, who lost practically all their
clothing and personal effects.
Mr. Ball is out about SBOO on the
building with no Insurance.

Brain of the Bee.
In a German scientific periodical G
Jooeecu gives tbe results of bis studies
of tbe brain of tbe bee. Aa might be
expected from Its wonderful instincts,
this is found to be very complex. Tbe
various divisions of tbe brain are de
scribed In detail, but perhaps tbe most
luteresting part Is tbe comparison of
tbe brains of queens, workers nod
drones. Tbe worker has a larger brain
than the queen, and as tbe difference
between queen and worker la the re
sult of diet doling tbe grub stage It
appears that tbe food which develops
slae of body end fertility Is not best
for tbe growth of brain. The “royal
