enjoyable given at the local opera bouse for sometime was the oyster supper put on by the Mun's club of this place last evening All the men were star performers and the women especially seemed to en- joy the various acts In tha rola of head waiter J L Dubois distinguished himself Burnt cork usad in profusion somewhat eclipsed his usual beaming nance but his good nature and ability to his office were in the best of Ths attendance was quite although the event had been advertised merely by handbills and he net receipts while small are for the work in hand The good however and ilie bringing for a pleasant evening of such a goodly number were the profits A phonograph from Mr store played some high class selections and after the supper a brief but ng program of songs and recitations was given by Misses Florence Manning nd Florence Bradshaw of the public school faculty 0 P Riordan of the Hen's made a few remarks ng those who had come out for the and promising other pleasant imes under the auspices of the club CRUMBS Dr G H Harris was chef extra- ordinary He is still puffed np over he compliments he received for ng such delightful stews Mark Feltus still retains the eating championship

seven waited on eleven people and carried a pail of water Forty women lined up and guyed the men who were doing the heavy work in the kitchen Fred W Colvin was accused by the of devoting 15 minutes to wiping one bowl but upon on it wat round that he expected to nse that dish himself for his stew Even the new school Merton Patterson as a bachelor jy the infrequently with which he changed the dish water Ernest Schneckloth was named as one of the waiters but he couldn't wait and sat down at the first table The dexterity with which Dr Hamilton waited on the table is at- ested by the small number ng of having soup spilled down their jack Dr Thompson got so the latter part of the evening that lie could carry two cups of coffee on a single ray snd deliver fully thirty per cent of it still in the cups There was only one instance of a single oyster being served and that one was found at the bottom of a pitcher of cream used for coffee Evidently expecting he would have to do most of the work Prof Smith came wearing a sweater He is accredited with going through the most motions 0 P Riordan did as little work as possible in order to be the better enabled to support the importance of bis

Cook claimed to be a great washer bnt he didn't appear to have all his proofs with him F W Woodruff who was assigned to the cooking department generously came to the assistance of those present by not taking the position George A Bailey and R J son made a faithful table committee After getting the tables arranged they stayed right by them W L Page was as busy as a ager of a football team proving the eligibility of his players He was one of the cooka and claims as much glory u Harris A J U a pretty clever I l with the bowl He waited on others and A 0 Smith gave the closest lion of a real waiter consisting ly in the wearing of a white coat INSPIRING LECTURE ON THE GOSPEL OF WORK The law of work is life the law of rest is death the law of activity is growth and the law of idleness is decay With this sentence Prof J W of the Webster City schools began his excellent lecture on The Gospel of Work at the church last Friday evening It was the opening session of a two- day teachers meeting here conducted by County Morris and Supt Smith of Correctionville and the at- tendance was large and the interest sustained throughout Prof Kelly is a well known orator in Iowa school circles and he is in great demand when programs are being made up The lecture had been previously an- as The Poets Colors and m under this title his address of Friday would have been appropriate or he introduced with admirable effect the glowing figures speech the delicate shading of the tion and the vivid background of genius of many of the immortal writers of history Bat the primary colors of modern life were ever sized and the central idea that work is the salvation of the individual and he nation was prominently brought out The speaker unequivocally de- clared idleness to be the foundation if all crime and urged parents to make industry and a sense of re- sponsibility cardinal virtues in their children especially tha boys He dignified labor in every sense and held up to tha scorn of the world the man who only claims tha at- tention of his fellows by his ng walk and his indolence Supt felly heartily indorsed the game of as a means of inspiring circulation and mental activity especially under the efficient and honorable coach who drills them n self control obedience and the ex- of good judgment To the hero who with determination spends his evenings if necessary in mastering the studies which seem lard for him the speaker paid a fine and predicted for him a future n the world of achievement where vork and perseverance are the ion of every real success The speaker's views on football won he cordial approval of the audience and at the conclusion of his address be applause was most hearty INTERESTING NEWS OF SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS NEARBY The following interesting lood notes are taken from the current of the Woodbury County Teacher published by County Supt Mrs Loretta Bower the new cipal at Hornick found the student jody in good spirits and well prepared or school opening This speaks well or the work of Almos Glasgow now attending Morningside college who was principal last year The Hornick school board recently added quite a portion of

schools in tha townships of Rock Morgan Miller Liston and Oto He visits from fourteen to eighteen schools per week the Der depending largely upon the con- ditions of the roads the weather and the

EASY VICTORY IS GOOD PRACTICE FOR GREAT LEMARS GAME D With a second to its credit having defeated Rockwell City lasi Saturday 54 to 0 the Correctionville high school football team is devoting its energies and ingenuity towar preparation for the game here ner Saturday against LeMars The LeMars team is generally con- ceded to be a stronger faster bunch than Ida Grove has and the Saturday game promises therefore to be the crux of the season With LeMars de- Correctionville will have passed the biggest reef in the championship sea Interest is high in the outcome and even at Sioux City this week we were told by quite number of men that they were going to plan to come over for the game Correctionville should make it a gala day and give the local team the en- which comes from the rallying cheers of borne people Mars last Saturday defeated Onawa to the latter scoring near the end when LeMars had substituted nearly ail of the second team The game here last Saturday against Rockwell City was quite well attended the weather being perfect Tha locals outweighed their 10 to 15 pounds to the man and played with greater assurance It was plain from the outset that the visitors were outclassed snd successfully bucked the line or ran around the ends out much trouble The locals wisely ried the forward pass but a few times play which they attempt with apparently the most unsettled notion of what they are endeavoring to They show up better in the old fashioned close game The first half with score 36 to 0 In the last half Coach utilized most of his second earn giving the lads some active in which they showed np exceedingly well Rockwell City is equal to the task of giving the first team a real tussle but the came afforded the locals mighty good drill for what is before hem

Correctionville walloped Rockwell 54 to 0 Ida Grove will ess say that the team that played at Lake City was the second team but Supt Hagler in his letter to Supt Smith stated as bis reason for ref ng to play Correctionville last day that his team was scheduled for a game with Lake City and he was sure the superintendent down there would not be willing to waive his claim they are sure ot the exact data ol losing and then in the rush of the last week forget to complete the records The records of many rural schools are found in similar condition Prof Lister of Cashing has induced a number of the around town to enter school In the three weeks he has been at the head of the work he has demonstrated that he can hold his own with the lads and already has them much interested in their studies Prof
