The farmers aro complaining

time to arrango for their exter

lishes an article in this issue re
specting traps for their capture

of small cost. Another sugges
tion is to have rabbit clubs form
ed and in connection with the
members of the Rod nnd Gun
Club have regular shoots from
time to time- with 22 rides. We
have somo good shots and tho
ammunition for these small cali
bre guns will amount to but
little no doubt can bo secured
more reasonably by getting in
quantities nnd tho Bport will

The Times-IIernld man can pick
20 men in the gun club, give each
100 rounds of ammunition and
guarantco 1900 dead rabbits at
tho end of tho shoot. This would
ho a very efl'ectivo manner to
assist in tho extermination of the

Tho Presbyterian Ladies' Aid
gave a Hallowe'en social, or
rather literary treat to their hus
bands on Wednesday evening of
Hast week nt tho Mason hall. The
Iimcs-IIcrald should hnve given
this some attention last week hut
its columns were filled with poli
tical advertising and it was im
possible to give considerable local
Early in the summer the ladies
decided that each would earn
$1.00 to contribute to tho furnish
ing fund of the church and it was
also voted at that time to have a
soclnl and each was to tell in
vcrae how she earned the dollar.
It was a decided literary treat to
tho husbands who attended and
Tho TimeB-Hcrald expects to
have many contributions of verse
from this source in the future as
it is a pity to have such talent
nnd not take advantage of it for
tho good of tho general public.
One of tho ladles put her verse
to music. Tho manner of earn
ing these dollars was varied from
the family washing to exhibiting
turkeys nt the county fair. They
were all well written verses and
caused much merriment. After
these readings, which were in
terspersed with music the men
folks were put through some
stunts, the particularly amusing
thing being to blindfold them
nnd have them put the center in
a large pumpkin that had been
made on cloth. The one coming
nearest to placing the pieco in
where it belonged was to receive
a whole pumpKin pie. Wvery
man thoro thought he was going
to get that pie but he didn't.
He liad all the pic, doughnuts,
coffee, npples, nuts and other re
freshments of like character he
could eat but not because he
placed the missing piece of pump
kin in the right spot.
Tho guests were met at the
door by a "flock of "spooks" and
escorted into the main hall, nnd
it was necessary to sit down be
fore one was rid of the shadowy
things at their heels. The affair
was a very pleasant one and the
men are always ready for another
of a like nature when the Ladies
Aid will invite them.
Band Concert Friday Eve.
The Tonawama Band will give
their first indoor concert for the
winter season at Tonawama hall
next Friday evening, November
15th. The band has practised
faithfully and will endeavor to
render some very acceptable con
cert music for the occasion, and
of a standard grade. The con
cert will begin 8:00 o'clock sharp
and will be of nn hour and a
half duration, consisting of ten
good numbers, with nn intermis
sion of ten minutes between
part oiio and two, nt which time
two of our populnr young ladies
will render nn npproprinte pinno
duet After the concert, the re
mainder of the evening will be
devoted to dancing, nnd all those
attending can feel assured that
the evening will be one of enter
tainment nnd pleasure. Seats
will be on snle nt tho box oflico
nt 50cts for ndults nnd 25 for
children, which ennblcs nil to
attend the concert at moderate
prices. The band, since its or
ganization last spring has been
conducted on nn independant
basis, has not asked for or re
ceived any donations, its only in
come (and in some instances
some of that is yet coming) be
ing from tho few engagements
it has had during the summer.
Besides its weekly open air con
certs it has donated its service
on every occasion demanded for
the entertainment nnd plensure
of tho public, and wo wonder if
any similar organization in the
state has been so liberal with its
music and received so little as
sistance and remuneration we
doubt it. Show your henrty ap
proval of tho band by turning
out next Friday evening and
then judge for yourself whether
or not tho organization is entitled
to worthy support, as well as a
credit to your community.
