The basket social held by the
ladies o f the Evangelical church
Saturday night was quite a suc
cess in every respect. A very
elaborate program o f recitations,
dialogues, songs and instrument
al music was rendered, after
which the baskets were sold.
The proceeds from the sale o f
baskets amounted to about forty-
five dollars, which will be used
to buy an organ for the church.
The ladies are to be commended
for the success o f the affair.
