The January Stiver Tea was held
Wednesday at the home of Mrs.
Nick Faler with a large attendance.
A dainty luncheon was served by
Mrs. Faler and the assistant host
esses, Mesdames Cramer, Hend
ricks, Johnson, Kunze, Geo. Wick
lander and Porter. Final reports of
the talents were given. Mrs. E. T.
Messenger turned in her talents
amounting to $10, made by selling
preserves, jell, pickles, doing laun
dry and in various other ways. She
was given a good round of applause
for she turned in by far the largest
sum. Mrs. J. F. Barlow came sec
ond, her dollar having grown to
$4.50. It was voted to have a con
cert some time in February. On
January 24 Mrs. Robert Johnson of
Idaho will give an entertainment at

Chevrolet truck at Pendleton.
The old Dodge car which seemed
so badly wrecked when W. O. King
skidded on the icy pavement, was
fixed up so he was able to drive it
home that night. There seems to
have been no bad results from the
accident Francine was in the hos
pital for three days lest complica
tions occur. Tout several x-rays show
ed no broken bones. The car turned
over on her but she was lucky as
were the rest of them.
The Home Economics club met at

A petition has been circulated and
presented to A. C. Houghton, the
project manager, asking that the
expenses of the irrigation district
be cut down as far as feasible. A
few favored the elimination of the
sinking fund. This might be a good
plan, provided a catastrophe never
occurs, but if a bad break ini the
ditch or some other unforseen dis
aster befell the irrigation system it
would be a good plan to have a
reserve fund on hand.
The Bridge club members each
gave Mrs. H. E. Bates a gift at their
The Adolph Skoubo family were
guests Sunday at the L. C. Cooney
home, at a lovely dinner.

The Surface family who have
rented the Broyles place on the
West End, have taken a long chance
in a gamble with old man Weather
and mother Nature and have plant
ed an acre of potatoes. Whether it
will be a case of "love's labor lost"
or a successful venture depends on
the weather. If the plants are not
frozen it might mean a tidy sum of
money to get an acre of potatoes
on such an early market

coming of Miss Sinnard of O. S. C.
