Pabk Place, Feb. 18. On the even
ing of Saturday last the upper rooms ol
the Park Place school house were tilled
with an interested audiance to attend
the exercises of the literary society. The
first thing on the protrram was a duet by
Miss Katie Smith andM ss Daisy Rivers,
The debate then took place. The
woman'ssufferage question wasdiscussed
jointly between Cross' longing camp
debaters consisting of Mr. King, Jack
Frost and Frank White and the Park
Place debaters consisting of James
Matheson, Winnie Dauchy, Fred Smith
and Jesse Faubian. The logging camp
debaters if they were from the back
woods proved themselves able to with
stand the Park Place students, The
judges rendered a wise decision when
they gave their virdict in favor of the
atTiiruative, or the side of the logging
camp debaters. Although some of the
Park Place boys discussed the question
with sound argument, most ot them
aimed merely to make fun and jokes out
of the qnestion which they did to satis
faction. We thank the loggers very
much for their kindness in debating
jointly with us and hooe they will take
the opportunity to do so again befoie
long. After the debate an excellent pro
gram was given by the young people of
Park Place and some from a distance
who kindly volunteeied to take part.
The program being very long the elec
tion of officer was put of until next
meeting. The question for next meeting
is "Resolved, That the world is growing
better morally and intellectually." The
leader of the affirmative it Mr. Har-
Lgreaves and of the negative Mr. Morris.
As the hour was growing late the people
adjourned of their own free will before
the leaders had time to choose their as
sistants so they are not vet known. The
question for next meeting is one of which
a thorough discussion will be of benefit
to us all and a good program will un
doubtedly be prepared so all be sure and
