At 12 o'clock all were ready for
dinner, and the feast Vegan.
Such loads of dinner we hadn't
seen for a long time as spread on
the tables. There was plenty for
all, we believe, as no one was
keard complaining of being
kungry. At 1:30 everyone vns
ready to sing again. The pro-
tram consisted principally of
elass singing. Among the class-
es represented were New Hebron,
North Burns, Cottonwood and
Page. One of the l est quartets

inps in honor of the convention.
A duet which was appreciated
very much was that by a little

CHEYENNE TO CELEBRATE
For the past twenty years, says
an exchange, the little city of
Cheyenne has been trying to in-
duce railroad builders to build
them a road, but all attempts
failed. The progressive citizens
of the town did not btcopa.e dis-
couraged. The Wichita Falls
road went within six miles of
their city, established a town
which they named Strong City
and for a time it appeared I hat
Cheye nne would be wiped from
the map. But like the Romans,
tho citizens got together and de-
cided that their effort* to induce
railroad people to build a road
had been in vain—that they
would tackle the job themselves
and build a road of their own.
On August 4, they have plan-
ned for the first train to arrive in
Cheyenne, and have invited the
country and sister cities to come
had the largest attendance of any | and celebrate with them. We
