Johnson, Mrs. Van Zandt and Mrs. Al Williams. Columbus, morning, and the boys and girls laid their vacation pleasures by and turned again to the arduous task of the school room. We came alarmingly near to adding to the columns of the press a share cf the horrible catastrophe of a child being burned.

One day last week Nellie Robison caught fire, and but for the presence and prompt action of older folks we would have to chronicle a little girl badly burned, but as it is we have a small girl who will be more careful in the future and who has now recovered from her fright. If Amanda will soak her table cloth for two hours in a solution of one-half teacup of salt to one-half gallon of rain water, then wash in an ordinary suds, rinse well, hang in the shade to dry, she will be pleased with the result. Meeting continues. Sunday morning Rev. Parrish preached on "TheBible on Baby Baptism." The weather has been unfavorable for country folks to come.

Prof. Garnell would like to get a class in vocal musio at this place. We hop he will, as he is a competent teacher. He went to Smith-field, Wednesday, to see about getting a class there. Mrs.

SOCIETY AND CLUBS Mr. Elza McDonald assisted by his mother Mrs. R. A. McDonald, Miss Ada McDonald and Miss Hazel Lash gave a birthday dinner party last Friday evening to the following freinds: Miss Jessie Kammermeyer Mim Birdie Egleston Edna Stovall of Galena Mr.

Enoch Baird Mr. Harry Leggett Mr. Bernard Wilei The jol'y memb. rsof the L. S.

C. Club entertaiivd their husbands at the home of Mr-. Geo. Steinbrook north of town. There were three swapping of little jests, which were harmless in themselves, but created amusement for all its readers, and seemed to arouse an interest and appreciation of each other's work among the correspondents.

Now let us all get acquainted, and by trying to reach out farther than our own locality, by making our column contain as many bright sayings as we can conjecture, we will not only add to our renown, but will make The Enterprise the strongest of 'the strong. CRESTLINE. Mr. Settle was quite sick part of last week and his daughter took charge of the pos'oflice. Ina is quite dignified under such responsibility.

Mr. Settle is able to be at his work again, but looks far from well. Little Ieta Moriarty has been quite sick with cold. Mrs. Lula Smith, of Redding Mills, and her daughter, Mrs.

Frank Childress and two little sons, of Galena, spent a few days of the new year as guests of Mrs. Henry Wiggins. Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Wiggins were girls together in the early 70's.

Mr. Henry Pierpont has in his possession a violin that has been in his mother's family over 200 years. It is of German make, and on the inscription board are these figures, D. 13." The last two figures are obliterated. Mr.

Pierpont is very proud of this ancient heirloom. He has also an old Stradivarius violin that was made in 1831. Wouldn't you bo prcud of such treasures? Mr. Pierpont thinks they are the sweetest tone violins in the state of Kansas. Miss Gertie Owens, who visited in Oklahoma county, Oklahoma, during the holidays, returned to her work much rested, and the mc oh 1 better say frosty chime of the school bell rang out Monday 17 U5i 7 sxir The sale of Cecil Lyerla was largely attended Tuesday.

Walter and Loren Gray have returned to their rk after a pleasant visit with their parents. Payne Darnell and Jesse Cox sold their farms last week to E. B. Sehermerhorn, of Galena. We trust that the above-named gentlemen, Messrs.

Darnell and Cox, will still reside with us, as we hate to lose such worthy men froln the neighborhood. Why do we all like to read the items from Stippville, Crestline and Ba'lger?" Because we find there bits of originality mixed with the locals. There lies one fault of the com spondent, and they are not al- ways to blame either, ior some papers cut out matter foreign to locals, and thus forestall any attempt of originality on the part of the correspondent. This policy is not followed by all newspapers, and we trust that The Enterprise will not join company with them. We find in most neighborhood items nothii but strange locals, and we who are not acquainted with these neiinle are not interested in their happenings, but let the riter place some bright crispy article in his column and the people, that is the readers outside of theif locality, will be interested in their weekly messages.

There is nothing that we like better than an exchange of compliments between the different correspondents. We would devote a little more time to this idea if we had mure time, but writing items for four county papers somewhat reduces our thirst for journalistic gore. The Galena Republican permitted its writers to engage in the mmar The Clio Club, after observing the Christmas holidays, resumed work last Monday afternoon, meeting with Mrs. J. E.

Tutton. The president being absent Mrs. Steve Walker presided over a meeting devoted to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Mrs. J.

Mrs. Frank Chandler, sister of the hostess, was a guest of the club. Socially Columbus has been most quiet the past week, the party given Thursday afternoon by Mrs.

C. M. Honl and Miss Johnston at the beautiful Ilord home, being the largest function of the week. Sixty-five ladies were present and partic-pated in a geographical guessirg game. The queriei- were presented upon a long green ticket, greatly resembling a railway ticket.

The rules and regulations of the road were there, too, one of which rend as follows: "Doctors are not provided, but if you have the grip it can be checked by the baggage master." The questions asked on tho ticket were all to be answered by the name of a city. For example, "A weekly performance and twenty hu dred weight," the answer to which was Washington. "A city whose end and aim is go." Chicago. The ladies guessing the greatest number correctly were Mrs. II.

A. La Rue and Mrs. John Wiswcll, for which they were rewarded, Mrs. La Rue with a handsome picture and Mrs. Wiswell a dainty needle book.
