, (Special to The Messenger.)
Goldsboro, N. C, December 31. Of all
the Christmas festivities that have
been given in thl city the mart decid
edly unique and enjoyable was the
j luncheon given at the Country Club to
! day by Mesdames Walter R- Borden
and Joseph E. Robinson and Misses
Mabel Borden, Sallie Kirby, Mattie
Lee and Daisy Smith.
About seventy-five ladies responded
to their invitations and assembled at
the home of Mrs. Borden in the morn
ing, 7here carriages were awaiting and
were driven to the beautiful country
club, about four miles from the city.
It was an ideal day, the weather being
crisp and bracing, to produce the kn
est appreciation of the roaring yu'e
logs of the merry Christmas tide. The
reception hall was tastefully decorate
with holly, pine and bamboo, and tee
daintiest refreshments were served.
Gobolink was the first amusement in
dulged in, each guest being given a
piece of paper on which a drop of Ink
had been blotted, making strange anl
different caricatures, upon which the
hostess requested rhymes of four lines
to be made. Some of them were verv
original and funny and caused th-
greatest merriment. The prize was
awarded to Mrs. James Allen, Charadts
and other games followed in order .and
It was a matter of much regret that
the time was all too short and sped too
quickly. Mrs. William Douglas, in her
characteristic graceful style regaled
the merry company with a witty
speech, thanking the hostesses for th
joyous occasion and expressing the
hope that it would be repeated at an
early day. After the club yell.

the front wheels of the hindmost truck
under the second class coach jumpid
the track at the switch and bumped
along on the cross ties for one hundred
yards. No damage of consequence was
done, but the passengers on that car
were very much frightened and shaken
up considerably. The slow speed at
which the train was running prevented
very serious trouble.

The Howard Relief Club Will Open

Giving a Banquet and Ball Com
pany One of the Oldest Organiza

New Club House an Elegant Struc
ture Company Has More Than
The Howard Relief Company will
open their new club house tonight by
giving a ball and banquet. It will be
an elegant affair, one that will be in
full keeping with the opening of such
a handsome club.
All the rooms of the club have been
beautifully decorated and everything
presents a festive appearance. Hollow
bush's orchestra has been engaged to
furnish music for the occasion. A
banquet will be given and there w.il
also be a ball. Hansome souvenirs will
be presented to those present.
The committee which had charge of
the arrangements were, Messrs. II.
Gieschen, M. Schnibben, W. A. Mahler,
W. Tienken, W. H. Coleman, C. B.
Rehder and W. F. Stolter. Mrs. p. N.
Fick has charge of the arrangements
for the banquet. Only members of the
club or their immediate families will
attend the reception, but these will
make a large crowd, as the company
has about eighty members.
The Howard Relief Company's new
club building is located at the corner of
Front and Orange streets and it is in
elegantf structure. The building -Is two
stories high and the entire building
will be used by the club. It is built of
white hydraulic brick and presents an
exceedingly pretty appearance.
The interior of the building presents
as pleasing an appearance as the out
side. On the first floor there are four
rooms, two on each side of the hall.
The front room on the right wi'.l be
used as a reading room and the room
in the rear as a committee room. The
front room on the left will be used as
a ladies reception parlor and the room
in the rear as a billiard and pool room.
On the second floor of the building is
a dancing hall. This is suppl.ei with
ladies and gentlemens dressing rooms
and it also has a balcony for the band
and spectators. The buffet will be on
the second floor of the building. It is
an up to date club building in every
respect and the members have a right
to feel proud of their new home. t is
one of the handsomest club buildings
in the State.
The different rooms of the club have
been handsomely furnished and every
thing presents a homelike and comfor
table appearance. In building the club
an effort was made to get all the ma
terlal, if possible, in Wilmington. Mrf
H. E. Bonitz, an architect, of this city,
was awarded the contract for putting
up the building and the handsome
structure erected under his supervision
convinces the company that they made
no mistake in selecting him. The only
materia used about the building wh'oh
was not bought in Wilmington was the
metal celling and the galvanized orna
ments. The Howard Relief Company was or
ganized in 1856 as a volunteer Are de
partment. It was first known as the
Howard Relief Fire Engine Company
and retained this name until about 1895s
when the city of Wilmington decided to
have a paid fire department. The com
pany then got their charter changed
striking out the words "Fire Engine."
When a city adopts the system of paid
fire departments the old compinies
generally disband and are foi gotten.
Not so with the Howard Relief Compa
ny. They were bound by many kin
dred ties and when the city decided o
have a paid fire department the mem
bers could not stand to see the club to
which they had belonged so long dis
band, so they decided to continue the
company in the form of a social organ
ization. From 1898, when the city got a
paid fire department, until the present
time, the company has met in the hall
of Germanla Lodge Knights of Pythias.
This company was organised by men
who were willing to give their time and
often endanger their lives to fight
(fires. The company has ever been re
garded as one composed of men of
May the Howard Relief "Club con
tinue to grow in prosperity and ma
they never lose that feeling of broth
erly love which has existed among the
members since it was first organized.
Evidence Not Sufficient to Bind Him
George Judge, the young, man who
was arrested several days ago upon
the charge of arson, and who was
given a preliminary trial before Jus
tice Fowler, was released yesterday the
evidence not being considered sufficient
to bind him over to court. The trial
was concluded Wednesday afternoon
but Justice Fowler reserv ed his decision
until yesterday morning.
Judge seemed delighted when he was
released. It would not have tik?n
much more evidence to sent tb cas
on to the higher court.

BOARD OF HEALTH.
Held Regular Monthly Meeting Yes
The city board of health held their
regular monthly meeting yesterday
afternoon in the mayor's office. The
most important matter taken up was
the adoption of an ordinance by
the board which requires that all
plumbing shall be done under the
city's supervision and that the same
shall be inspected by a regular in
spector before being accepted by the
city. A special committee composed
of Dr. A. H. Harrlss. Marcus Jacob!
and S. P. Adams, were appointed to
confer with the ordinance commit
tee of the board of aldermen in re
gard to the passing of the ordinance.
It is said there is possibly not an
other town the size of Wilmington
in the United States which has not
got an inspector to examine plumb
ing. This matter will probably be
acted on at the meeting of the board
of aldermen Monday night.
The board also decided to notify
