people who came lr. on foot and on
horseback. Kvery sloie was crowded

was kept on the Jump all day, scarce-1
ly gelling time lo go to dinner. The I
ladles aid served hot meals at the
Opera heusn and were kept very busy
all day attending to the many hungry
people. In tlie evening a grand so
cial Ifme was Indulged fu as the la
dles had prepared a "fish pond" and
nianv were I'ninul trying their luck at
malting a catch. The Yoncalla hand
rendered several selections during
Ihe evening which added greatly to
the occasion. Taken nil In all.il was
a grand day for Voncalla, about
iMtul turkeys being marketed, the
price being 1!.'! cents per pound for

After leaving the station of His 3a
