THE MASQUERADE BALL.
The Masquerade Ball given in this
city on last Tuesday night by the
Canyon City Brass Band was a grand
success considering that it was the
first one that manv had ever attend
ed. The costumes were all very nice
and many quite costly. The charac
ters taken were all well represented
.and everything passed off harmon
iously till early morning. The re
, jjorter is hardly prepared to risk his
way who was the ''Belle of the Ball"
.as the ladies were all "loo sweet fo'
.anything." Below we give a list of
-those that were masked and also the
character they took. If any are left
out wo beg pardon:

Pursuant to adjournment the
G ran County "Woman Suffrage As
sociation met on the 18th of Nov.,
in the M. E. Church, Canyon City.
The Rev. Mr. Wilcox, was invited to
address the association which he did
in an able and eloquent manner.
The President, in fitting terms, re
turned the thanks of the assoication.
He was followed by Major Magone
who heartily endorsed his speech,
and regretted exceedingly that every
lady in the city had not the pleas
ure of hearing it. Hoped the ladies
present would encourage their sis
ters, and friends, to come out and
take part in the meetings. There
was nothing better calculated to de
stroy "Madam Grundy's" influence;
and Mrs. Duniway's would then be
found in everv neighborhood.
Adjourned to meet at same place
Nov. 30th, 1888, 2 O'clock P. M.

Some of our city subscriberstell
us that often before they have read
the New3 that some of their neigh

to tell them thev have not read it

chance of never getting it again.
Now, we have a remedy. If you
want the News instead of borrowing
of your neighbor come to us and we.
will rent a copy to you for ten cents
