EiBariance Social. 'I he memliers of
t lie Christian Endeavor held quite an
interesting social at the Christian
church in this city on Thanksgiving
eve. A short but interesting program
was rendered which consisted of reci
tatinns and inline. Each member was
pledged to ear twenty-five cents by
manual lalmr for their contribution,
and the "experiences'' were the comi
cal feature of the entertainment. One
young lady earned her contribution
by sacking potatoes hy lamplight
while her partner, a young geutletnau,
did the digging; another young lady
polished a young gentleman's boota
and earned her contribution; oae lady
sheaied a sheep skin and earued her
mile; and another pared apples at the
cannery and sold a g illou of vinej; ir
to earn her mite; two ether young
ladle polished a young gentleman's
heating stove for their contribution,
but while tloiuK so the stovepijie fell
and broke a lamp chimney, which
cost 1 hem 10 cents to replace, besides
the lloor was covered with sut from

Joy the occasion and a very pleasant
evening was whiled away. The gross
receipts weie fl.i.lid.of which amount

The City Election
The municipal election held In this
city on last Monday was quite a spirit
ed contest, and the result cannot be
claimed as a political victory for either
parly. It is clearly evident thai the
political fences were knwkcd down
aud men scattered their votes in all
directions. It i- ouly justice to say
that A. S. Lorki , 1 he democratic can
didate for city tl. . surer, did not have
a fair chance in the race. He was
placed in the field as a substitute can
didate, much against his own judg
ment, oulv a few days before the elec
tion, lle'had no time to make a can

Meeting called to order at 10:20 by
President Reynolds, and after a
couple of Bong by the association,
Mrs. Tnggart b.-ing absent, Mr.
Cortmlt introduced the subject of
teaching numbers. He thinks that
fracti'Uis and decimal numbers

several who brought out well

At 1 :30 the association sang some
patriotic soncs, and then Miss

A double trio was then sung by
the Monmouth pupils.

pa tier on "How to Strengthen the

warm discussion on the subject,
but all seemed to think that
memory. like a muscle, was
strengthened by constant use
The idea of getting one of the
county papers to act as the olhcial
organ of the county teachers was
discussed and Profs. Long, Hayes
