tiest ever seen in the territory and

HOUSE WARMING AND SHOWER.
Rev. Thos. F. Barrier, of the Pres-
byterian church, did not get home
from the meetings of the Presbytery
and Synod until Tuesday afternoon,
and when he arrived he found his fam-
ily installed In the new manse. Some
of the ladles and men of the church
had been busy Monday and Tuesday
and assisted Mrs. Barrier In getting
the new house In readiness and in
moving. Tuesday night about one
hundred of the congregation and
friends went in a body to the new
manse and surprised both Rev. and
Mrs Barrier. They took with them
a number of articles that will be use-
ful in the new home. The Christian
Endeavor presented Mrs. Barrier
with a new kitchen cabinet, and oth-
ers brought flour, sugar, tea, coffee,
spices, canned fruits, kitchen uten-
sils, etc. It was a merry party and
they remained until about lo o’clock.
A nice musical and literary program
was rendered; MIbs Nannie Murphy,
solo; Misses Buchholz and Green, In-
strumental music, and Edytta Alyer-
son two recitations, all heartily en-
joyed. As Mr. C. J. Willis and family
were present, having stayed over for
the occasion, it was also a Bort of
farewell party tor them. Mr. Willis,
as leader of the church orchestra,
and Mrs. Willis, as an active worker
in church and Sunday school, have
rendered valuable services, and the
regret at their departure is universal.
Mr. and Mrs. Marlon Ford are re-
ceiving congratulations over the ar-
rival at their home Tuesday, October
10, of a sweet girl baby.
