A merry cr-iwtl of ladies embarked
oil an old fashioned "bob sled" rldo
ast Saturday iilternoou, with one lone
man aboard as driver. Tlm ladies
were out for a jfood time, and evident
ly they received their "money's
worth." TalkiiiK, luiiKbiiitt, sluKinif,
ouch one trying to tulk a littlo louder
thau their ueixhbor, until they were
hoarse, they tlnally concluded that if
they were to 1st heard la tlm world
they would havo to resort to some
other means, or wear out their
throats. The driver was asked to
drive to tho stores of Ahlstroiu'a and
ISieber's, where all tho horns in town
were bought and tho crowd started
out ouco more, tho "toot" of the
horns almost drowning tho merry
tinkle or tho tdcik'h bells.
Kvery imiu met was saluted with the
waving of bauds and handkerchiefs,
even tho poor lonely scarecrow was
mistaken for "soinobtMly'B husband"
by some of the moro excited ones ami
saluted with frantic gestures.
The drive through tho main Mreets
was quite perilous, the envious gentle
men of the city lined up with great
heaps of snow balls and waylayed the
more fortunate ladies. Mr. Umbach,
Mr. Bhirk and Mr. Noriu taking the
load, some say the snow balls were
aimed at the driver by tho above gen
tlemen, The ladies who enjoyed the
delightful ride were, Mrs. V. M. Mil

tained by clearing your roadbed Clean
of any and all old wornout material,
putting ou a thin coating of screened
gravel, or screenings, and tnen wet
tins wltb oil, putting on about 1,00)
gallons of oil per mile, wetting tbe
road about eigbt feet wide. The oQ
works out wider with use. Very good
results are bad by putting oil on first
