    THE POLE COUNTY OBSERVER. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1915.
SOCIETY
Tramp Social One of the most nov
el entertainments ever given in Dal
las was tbalt of last Friday night, 1111
der tffS auspices of the young people
of the Christian church, which was
largely attended, approximately two
hundred persons being participants,
It was known as a " tramp social,
and after having assembled at the
church the party went lromhonse to
house, seeking a hand-out from back
doors, their personal appearances de
noting that they had long been ac
customed to gaining a livelihood by
this method. The program had been
Disarranged, Minister McConnell hav
ing very successfully mapped out the
plan of procedure. The hungry Weary
Willies visited the home of Mr. and
Mrs. James Robbie, where they were
meagerly served with substantial food,
after which they proceeded to the
homes of Mr. and Mrs. U. U. Gamp
bell, Mr. and Mrs. I. L. Smith, Dn
and Mrs. .roster, and Mr. and Mrs,
Eugene Hayter, picking up tidbits at
each. At the home of Mr. and Mrs.
McDonald the party encountered an
obstacle m the person of Hugh Black
who, impersonating a farmer, "fired"
the whole bunch bodily from the
premises.
When about to make another grub
raid, on complaint of Hugh Black,
Sheriff Orr caused the arrest of the
entire party and gathered 'the chief
offender against the peace and dig
nity of the people of this great and
glorious commonwealth, H. C. Sey
mour, into his official arms, with in
structions to the lemaining ones 'to
"fall in. Enrou'te to the court house
with his prize the officer had the mis
fortune to drop his headpiece to
mother earth, and while in the act of
recovering it Hobo Seymour escaped
from custody, and his whereabouts
was not discovered until laten in the
evening, when he, scenting eats from
afar, voluntarily appeared at the
church. The wanderers were arraign
ed before Judge Walter L. Tooze, and
more than a half hour was consumed
in the trial, which resulted in a sen
tence to piodiwe a square meal for
the magistrate. The trial was most
humorous in its character, and the
judge saw that the sentence which
he had imposed upon the offenders
was enforced by accompanying the
party back to itlie church, where re
freshments were served in a jungle,!
representing the temporary abiding
place ot the wanderers.
A short, but interesting, program
followed, the participants including
Mrs. Frank Hrown in a reading; Bus
ter Brown, reading; Sam Ray in song;
' Mils. Howard McConnell, solo; and
Minister McConnell, reading. The so
cial was the first of a series of en
tertainments to be given during the
winter under the auspice's of the
Christian Endeavor society of the
Christian church.
Regarding these entertainments
Rev. McConnell says: "It is our
puipose to furnish the young folks
with amusements that are attractive
and at the same time helpful. Amuse
ments that all can participate in wll'i
out a qualm of conscience. I lielieve
in the rationalization ot the recreation
hour, making it not merely a time of
relaxation but also the receiving of
such ideal, unconsciously perhaps, but
nevertheless less real, as will find an
impoitant place in the building of
character, ho the plays and playlets,
entertainments and socials given n
the series during the winter will have
for their aim the inculcating of t:ie
Christ idea in the lives of the young."

BIO FOOTBALL GAME DRAWS.
Largs Number of Local People Take
Special to Eugene.
Approximately seventy-five Dallas
people sat through a downpour of
rain on Saturday afternoon to wit
ness the state's greatest annual foot
ball baltle between the elevens of the
T'niversity of Orpgon and theOregon
Agricultural eollese. The water soak
ed gridiron, on which the ball actu
ally floated in some places, did not
hinder the nniversity team from scor
ing a 9 to 0 victory over, the college
team, thns upsetting the majority of
predictions as to the outcome of the
contest. The only Dallas bor to ap
pear in either team was "Zip" W.
Snyder, son of A. V. R. Sny.ler. The
game was spectacular only bf"a
of the watery field on which it w
plaved. The special train that
Dallas to connect with a West Si l-r
special at Oerlinger carried a larw
ciowd of fans from this place mi!
from Falls City. Most of tbew re
turned on the special that arrived on
Saturday evening. Since the two
state schools resumed athV-tie rela
tions in 1912 the university team has
won two games and tied the other two
that have been played. This places
the university players among the top
few in the United States.

WHAT IS HOME WITHOUT A PIANO?
NO HOME NOWADAYS IS COMPLETE AND NO FAMILY CAN GAIN THE FULL REALIZATION OF HAPPINESS WITHOUT A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT OF
SOME KIND, OF WHICH A PIANO IS THE MOST DESIRABLE AND THE MOST APPROPRIATE. THE VALUE OF A GOOD MUSICAL EDUCATION IS APPRECIATED
MORE AND MORE, AND MUSICAL TALENT IS NOW CULTIVATED IN A MARKED DEGREE BY PEOPLE IN ALL STATIONS OF LIFE. IT IS A SOCIAL ACCOM
PLISHMENT OF THE HIGHEST AND MOST DESIRABLE KIND AND GIVES THE POSSESSOR AN INDIVIDUALITY AND A SOCIAL STANDING THAT NOTHING
ELSE CAN GIVE.
THE TEST OF PIANO QUALITY.
THE PURCHASE OF A PIANO IS, IN MOST HOMES, AN EVENT THAT OCCURS ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME. THE UTMOST CARE SHOULD THEREFORE
BE USED TO SELECT THE RIGHT KIND OF AN INSTRUMENT. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU SELECT YOUR PIANO. APPLY THIS TEST AND YOU WILL
HAVE A PIANO THAT WILL GIVE A LIFELONG SATISFACTION AND WILL BE A PRIDE AND A PLEASURE TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY AS WELL AS YOUR
CIRCLE OF FRIENDS. THE CASE OF A "COMMERCIAL" PIANO MAY BE ARTISTIC AT.LY MODELED AND BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED, AND IF ONE BOUGHT A
PIANO MERELY FOR ITS WORTH AS A PIECE OF FURNITURE, JUDGMENT MIGHT WELL BE BASED ON EXCELLENCE THAT APPEALS TO THE EYE ALONE
BUT A PIANO SHOULD BE MORE THAN AN ORNAMENT TO THE HOME. IT SHOULD BE CHARM THAT WILL ATTRACT THE FAMILY AND ITS FRIENDS TO
THE FIRESIDE AND MAKE HOME A PLEASURE, A PIANO OF QUALITY IS NOT MERELY SO MUCH WOOD AND METAL. BUT A THING OF LIFE AN INSTRU
MENT WITH A SOUL. A PIANO OF QUALITY READILY RESPONDS TO THE PLAYER'S TOUCH, THOUGHT AND MOOD, MAKING IT POSSIBLE TO INTERPRET
THE WORKS OF THE GREAT MASTERS OF MUSIC.

FERENCE HOW CHEAP YOU BUY IT. f 150 WILL NOT BUY THE RAW MATERIAL THAT GOES INTO A HIGH GRADE PIANO, AND HOW ON EARTH DO YOU EX
