tory. It reads as follows:

Interesting Program, Big Crowd and
a Grand Good Time En
joyed By All.
The YV. O. YV. Hally at Langlois
last Friday and Saturday was, on a
whole, a decided success, especially
as the people of that place were
laboring under a handicap caused
by the late fire.
Friday’s program was father short
as the Bandon orchestra flailed to
show up, and the morning’s enter
tainment consisted of several songs
and recitations that were well re
ceived. The afternoon was given
over to the ball game between Port
Orford and Langlois, and the visit
ing nine showed a philanthropic
spirit (there’s no other way to ex
press it) that would put a Carnegie
to shame. The Port Orford boys
left home with blood in their eye,
but when they reached Langlois and
saw the fire-swept ruins ol the little
town a great wave of sympathy
surged over them, and with it came
a realization ot how grasping it
would be to take a $50-purse away
from our neighbors at such a time.
It was really thought a little shame
ful the way the Langlois boys took
advantage of this generosity. They
started a game of tag around the
diamond and it looked like they
would run their beads off before
After it was all over
the score stood 39 to 7— a lasting
memorial to the bigheartedness of
the visiting team.
Saturday was the big day, and
every minute was, taken up with
iuteresting features. The forenoon
program was excellent, consisting
of speaking, singing and music by
the Bandon Orchestra— among the
orators who delivertd pleasing ad
dresses, were Col. Rosa of Bandon,
aud W. H. Metedith, of Port Orford.
The afternoon was taken up with
sports of various kinds The Ban-
don ball team defeated Langlois 8
to 2 in an interesting game.
lieu of Lakeport took the hundred
yard foot race, and Colebrook's
horse won the first free-for-all horse
race; being defeated iater in a match
race by Dug Cook’s Skipper colt.
The rally ended with a large and
successful dance, the proceeds of
which went to the fire sufferers.
Tickets were sold at donation prices
and some $1200 or $ 1500 was raised
in this manner.
Good meals tor the occasion were
furnished by Mrs Haft, who has
