The Fudgers Are Entertained.
All recordsdr'uuiq'ue and original en tertainmente, "which the Fudge club ladies have deservedly held from the very iufancy of 'their club down to the present time, were broken Thursday evening of last week, by their "Fireside Party" tendered thetn by Mrs. Emma Zuok, at her delightful home. The home was-ablaze with electric lights and pio fuse decorations. An informal program of instrumental and vocal music was en joyed before luncheon. The artistic beauty of the table arrangements was an appetizer that proved effective. The rich dining tuble was free from any table cloth and only elaborate doileys marked the place for each guest. In the center was the typical old time chimney, and from it just at its base, Old Santa Clause, was to be seen euraerging from his drop from the roof; the chimney was covered with "snow." and from every nook and corner of Santa's abiding place red ribbons came out extending to each doiley, and to these ribbons were at tached the place cards, and to the chim ney end of the ribbons unique souvenirs were attached little red stockings filled to overflowing with bonbons. The din ner was was sered in six courses, and od Completing the last course each guest pulled their ribbon which brought to them their"token"from the chimney and Old Santa. In addition to the members of the club, Mrs. Zook invited the fol lowing young gentlemen just in order that the young ladies of the club might hae "company home." The young men accepting the invitations were: Messrs Sherman Ilibbard, Harold Hoffman, Corban Markland.Barney Noland, John son Rayhill, Wesley Markt, Harry Pol lock, Don Hunt and Frank Castle. And these your.g gallants "saw them home"; returned them to their dear mammas, and then to dream land they went.think ing of the happy, joyous evening they had passed through the kindnessjof their host, Mrs. Zook. Happy Hearts. On Christmas Day, 1906, in the pres ence of a few intimate friends and rela tives of the contracting, parties, a quiet home wedding occurred at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Ashworth, when they gave their daugh ter,Bessie,in marriage to Mr. John So ai mers. The cozy new home of Mr. and Mrs. Ashworth was elaborately decorated for the happy event, the color scheme being green and red. promptly At high noon as the gentle notes of the. wedding march floated out sweet and clear, ren dered by Miss -Minnie ; Ashworth, the happy couple, led by Roy Ashworth, a brother, as best man and Miss Allie. Pat terson as the bridge's, maid, they took their places underneath a . massive wedding bell, which was artistically decorated in green and red; behind the bridal party was a background ,of evergreen and pot ted plants and. ferns. Here the Rev. Saucerman.of the M. E. church, of Fillmore, impressively spoke the words that united this most worthy young couple as man. and wife.

Their many friends here extend sincere sympathy to them in their hour of affliction, and hope that the children now sick with this dread disease, may recover. In the clossing weeks of his term of office Judge Alkire performed a service for the people of Holt county for which he recdived no pecuniary reward; but he is rewarded by the consciousness of duty well done, and by the hearty thanks of all who have any occasion to delve among the old records of the office. For many years the papers connected with the administration of estates in that court.were, after final 83ttlemcnt,thrown into pigeon holes anywhere to get them out of the way. They were in a state of almost inextricable confusion, and it was an almost hopeless job to go through the mass and dig out the papers of any particular estate. Besides the inconvenience tnese papers were in the office i:nd not in the vault and so were constantly in danger of destruction in case of fire. Several months ago Judge Alkire bad some cases put in the vault and begun the tedious job of sorting out and arranging this immense mass of naoers. It took all his spare time for months.but as a result this disorder was reduced to order and all the papers now in existence, connected with the admin istration of estates in our Probate court. are in the vault and arranged alphabeti cally. When it is remembered that the title to more than half the land in Holt county has at some time passed through the Probate court, ana aepenas .upon the regularity and validity of the pro ceedings in that court, some idea may be formed of the value of the service gratuitously rendered by Judge Alkire, Death, of Samuel May. He who has but one aim, that of de struction. and who never passes along human paths only to gather spoils, has again shown his power among us. No mortal can ever learn to fully know him. We cannot learn by practice to advise against him, for we never return from the first journey with him through the shades, to inform our friends of the images along the way. No one can nelp another to successfully escape his present destroying power. But his power has been confioed to the material realm. Beyond this the point of his scythe has never reached, yet each hu man life lives more in the spiritual and unseen than it does in the material Hence the fuller life is never touched by him. Samuel W. May was born in Rocking ham county, Virginia, June 7, 1843. Re moved to Indiana, then to Illinois, then to NorthwestjMissouri, where he had lived for 30 years or more His first wife to whom he was: married in 1867, left this present life b'ix years ago. His surviving companion to whom he was united March 7, 1905, remains in the home he so lately vacated in Forest City He has one brother, who lives in the West. Two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Burke, of Mound City, and Mrs. Abe Strough, of Craig. The former with her daughter and the latter with two sons were in at tendance at the funeral, which was held from the Christian church at Forest City, Dec. 27th at one o'clock p. m., after which the body was laid away in the ever enlarging city on the nearby hill. Mr. May had none to the vicinity of Mt. Grove, Mo., with a view to finding some place that might offer better op portunities than were immediately pre sented. In the midst of active life, death walked near with feet shod in wool. Pneumonia fastened upon the body which was consumed by the feverish flame what remained .was brought back to the old home. Mr. May was a friend of the writer. Those among whom he labored could trust him always. One whom we know personally to be an honest and truthful man, said that he ever trusted Mr. May as one who was ever true to every duty enjoined upon him. t O, for a more comprehensive view of life. That we may see each human life as it sets, like the setting sun, throw its glory toward the sky of immortality, where a more beautiful presentation is seen than was noticed while it was ap parently higher in the world of life. W. A. H. Our State Solons. The general assembly of the State of Missouri was called to order at noon Wednesday; the house being called to order by Secretary of State, John E.
