The "Winter Picnic" and dance
which was arranged for at this meet
ing and which was given in the opera
house Monday evening under the
patronage of the Ladies Library Asso
ciation was undoubtedly one of the
biggest successes of the season. The
association comprises almost all the
women of the city and the entertain
ment was attended by the larger
part of the membership.
The dance was opened by' a grand
march which made a beautiful specU.
cle. It was not intended as a dress
occasion but many beautiful gowns
were in evidence. The men attend
ed in business attire. Music was ex
cellent and the floor was good,
and "winter picnic" would not be
complete without mention of the
beautiful lunch baskets that were do
nated. Some were intricately made
and artistically decorated, reflecting
great credit upon those who contrib
uted them. Many more lunches could
have been sold. Our genial baker
Fritz Weber, sent to the hall a gen
erous tray of warm doughnuts that
were heartily enjoyed and appreciated.

the proceeds of the Washington's
