Remembered The Day,
Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Aruett
Ttiesdayquietly celebrated the anni
versary of their marriage. At the
same time their daughter, Mrs. W.
O. Clark, celebrated the anniver
sary of her wedding to W. O.
Clark it having "been a double
wedding at different dates." It is
not a common event for mother and
daughter to have chosen the same
day of the same month for the
Benefit Ball For
This (J'riduy) evening Unit 1
to be a buiifefit dance for the liie
department of this city, ami it U

no better plan 1 ould be udojried at
this time for the iuie fiiinU.
It is the desire now to have a
good dt'iMirtuuut in the city, but
there are certain excuse which
must Iw kept up. So long as there
are no fires amounting to anything
everything runs smioothly but the
moment one fire occurs whiili
thrcittuns the entire city there nries
a great cry ngarding a fire depart
ment The only whv to prevent
fire, is to tuke paifu at til- start
liave a trained company of fighU-rs,
ami as a general rule jeople re not
going to individual cxpeiifce to fight
the battles of others.
I,et everyone patronize thistlonce.
The little four bits donated doc,
not amount to much for each out.
and the total can be made a goodly
sum. It promises to be a pluunaut
one in all resects.
