Dials, Sept. 6.--Despite the depres
ion gf the times, the 'people of this
community are of a iprogressive na
ture and are qrdent ibelievers of the
"get-together" movemenit, and that "a
little nonsense now and then is relish
ed by the wisest men," and one of the
nost enjoyable of these inovements
was that of 'Saturday afternoon, Sop
tember '3rd, when the entire commun
4ty "turned out" and enjoyed an af
ternoon picnic at Pinowood Lake.
"Pinewood Lake", with its beauti
ful surroundings, is .well adapted to
outings of this kind, and has been the
scene of a number of such gala affairs
this summer, none more enjoyable,
however, than the one of Saturday af
ternoon. Mlr. B. H1. Gray was the pro
moter of the affair, and much of the
success and pleasure of the occasion
swas due to his efforts and that of the
Curry families.
The guests -began to arrive quite
early and 'by mid-afternoon all had
assembled. The children and younger
People 'went in swimming, while their
elders formed congenial groups along
the grassy shore, rimmed by stately
plines, and induiged in a regular talk
At 5 o'clock supper was served
which consisted of barbecue meats,
fish, loaf, hot coffee of the best (as
Mrs. Ropp had charge of that delpart
ment of the drinks) and ice water. All
were invited to partake, prayer being
first offered by Mr. J. W. Wells.
All good things, however, have an
ending, and when the. sun had set,
till of all the brilliant spectacle,
naught remained but the crimson
streaks across the azure of the sky
proclaimed the hour of departure the
guests, bade each other good-bye and
wended their homeward nway.
Those present were Mr. .B. 1-1. Gray

to the land on w-hich the family lived
and reared all the members of this

them by King George, of England, in
1773. Four daughters and tiwo sons
were present, one daughter being
from Texas. Rev. J. 'W. Watts made
a iprayer. A sumptuous dinner was
served under the magnificent oabs,
which was a marvel in the culinary
art, and was equal to all former oc
casions. There were about 85 guests
present on this occasion to enjoy their
hospitality. Kodaks were made and
swimming enjoyed by the younger set
