A dance was given in Bean
hall Friday night at Middle
Brook. 1 "Bean Hall" is a rather
unique name for a dancing house
but this place received it's name
some two years ago when a
"hard times" dance was given in
the building. The party was
given with the instructions that
no one should dress for the occa
sion but come in their everyday
wearing apparel and that the
menu for supper should consist
of boiled beans. This had a
rather romantic sound and at
tracted, quite a crowd to the
dance and everyone brought a
large bowl of deliciously cooked
beans. Of course there were
other dainty dishes that graced
the table when the supper was
spread, but beans were surely in
evidence and the supper and
dance proved to be a most suc
cessful event. And so much was
the party enjoyed that other
dances followed but they were
no longer confined to Micfdh
Brook, for outsiders learning of
the good times they were having
began flocking to Bean hall till
the house became so crowded
that dancing was almost crushed
out of existence. This building
which brought so many pleasure
seekers was built for a cookhouse
by Fraiey & Sons at their saw
mill some eight or ten years ago.
When the mill was removed from
the Spath place where the dance
hall remains, Mr. Spath bought
the cook house and left it stand
ing. A good floor was after-
Wards put in the large dining
room, where the mill hands were
fed, which afforded a good danc
ing place for the small neigh
borhood of Middle Brook.
Marion Duncan came over
from his homestead 'at fceht Sat
urday. Mr. Duncan was almost
laid up with an attack of the
gripp and thought he would
come Over here where his family
are at present. He got a man
to bring him to.Sherar expecting
to take the stage for this place
late Friday afternoon, but un
fortunately the stage had left
the station before his arrival, the
party brought him on to Tygh
thinking to catch the stage while
delayed at the postoffice there,
but the stage had left. He re
mained over night at the John
son hotel and his brother Cal
went down Saturday and brought
him to Wamic.
