Transcript of Article


The C. G. U. L. Club gave a grand Lawn Party and Concert at the Odd Fellow's Hall, Monday and Tuesday nights, August 29th and 30th. The yard was beautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns, which made everything lively and gay. There were several solos, and quartettes by different ones. Great credit is due to this club as it hasn't been organized long. The correspondent of this paper was present on Tuesday night, and when he was found to be a news gatherer he was ushered to a reserve seat. Quite a pleasant time was spent.

Circus was in town, Saturday 4th, great many attended, many who were not able. The fever is said to be raging here at present. The 17th will soon be here, are you ready for the Excursion?
