The Smoker given by the
Commercial Club Monday night
was well attended considering it
was the coldest oigiit known in
Cordell for twelv > years. It is
intending to pull off another in
the near future. The smoker
would have been post poned had
it not been that Secretary Har
very'had ordered the punch and
reported that th • saving quality
had not been added in sufficient
quantity to perserve it to any fu-
ture date. Hereafter we would
recommend the punch be made
stronger in order that the mem-
bers will net be obliged to ex-
pose themselves to the rigors of
a coal night to perserve it.
