Warner Sons, Contractors Builders. One of the most enjoyable per- formances given at the local opera bouse for sometime was the oyster supper put on by the Mun's club of this place, last Wednosday 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 counte- nance, but his good nature and adapt- ability to his office were in the best of :rim. Ths attendance was quite sat- sfiictory, although the event had been advertised merely by handbills, and ;he net receipts, while small, are ac- ceptable for the work in hand. The good t.me, however, and ilie bringing ;ogether for a pleasant evening of such a goodly number, were the cfaief profits. A phonograph from Mr. Yockey'a store played some high class selections, and after the supper a brief, but pleas- 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 clnb made a few remarks thank- ng those who had come out for the ivening 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 mak- ng such delightful stews. Mark Feltus still retains the eating championship which he won at the ;ounty picnic. He wiped dishes 15 minutes and ate for an hour. Ben Neilis won the dish wiping medal, winning by one bowl, two cups ,ud three spoons. Earl Edmunds is still bragging about liis veisatility. He wiped seven lishes, 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 on-lookers of devoting 15 minutes to wiping one bowl, but upon investiga- on it wat round that he expected to nse that dish himself, for his stew. Even the new school ma'ams recog- nized 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 complain- 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 high office. If Delmonico's were supplied with such waiters as E. C. Logan proved bimself to be we would predict a great future for Rector's and some of the other New York restaurants. Edgar Bailey wag j. o. t. s. which stands for Johnny on the spo.t. No- body was permitted to devour the second oyster until the whole supper was paid for. In the quiet, manner of his illus- trious namesake who has just returned from the north pole or thereabouts, Dr. Cook, claimed to be a great dish- 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. Patti- son made a faithful table committee. After getting the tables arranged they stayed right by them. W. L. Page was as busy as a man- 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.' ftlta U a pretty clever V.fJl '.-.-.I''.

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. Kblly, snpt. of the Webster City schools, began his excellent lecture on ''The Gospel of Work" at the Congre- gational church last Friday evening. It was the opening session of a two- day teachers' meeting here, conducted by County Snpt. 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- nounced 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 imagina- tion and the vivid background of genius of many of the immortal writers of history. Bat the primary colors of modern life were ever empha- 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 onng man who only claims tha at- tention of his fellows by his swagger- ng walk and his indolence. Supt. felly heartily indorsed the game of !ootball as a means of inspiring lealthfnl circulation and mental activity, especially under the efficient and honorable coach who drills them n self control, obedience and the ex- ercise of good judgment. To the 'ootball hero who with determination spends his evenings if necessary in mastering the studies which seem lard for him, the speaker paid a fine ribute and predicted for him a future n the world of achievement where vork and perseverance are the founda- 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 neighbor- lood notes are taken from the current of the Woodbury County Teacher, published by County Supt. Morris: Mrs. Loretta Bower, the new prin- 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 territory to the district, vhich cives the board the funds need- ed. The additional territory was ceded by the Willow township school district. The county superintendent spent .he month of September in visiting schools in tha townships of Rock, [Cedron, Morgan, Miller, Liston and Oto. He visits from fourteen to eighteen schools per week, the num- Der depending largely upon the con- ditions of the roads, the weather and the schools. In the townships of Rock, Morgan and Liston the schools are of the independent rural variety, while thosa in Miller and Kedron are of the sub-district order. The superinten- dent found the school houses, build- inps, grounds, fences, trees, in much better condition in the independent rural school districts than were those in the snb-districts, bnt is unable to account for the betterment as the communities in the townships having snb-districts are as wealthy and enter- prising in all other respects. Each teacher should see that her records and reports are complete be- fore she leaves at- the end of the term. Supt. Morris yisited one school in Rock township in September, and in looking over the records discovered that no year date had been recorded He found the following teachers bad taught from one to four terms each and not one of them had recorded the rear in which she tanght: Mrs. Loretta Bower, May Cameron, Ethyl Hackett, Lncy Lee, Katya Jennie Strobm, Joanna Murphy. Agnes Groves taught the school in the spring of 1907 and her records were tie only oaaa..ia tha whole renter which gaye the: Many teaohert of thuysM Mti EASY VICTORY IS GOOD PRACTICE FOR GREAT LEMARS GAME D With a. second victoi-y 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- feated, 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- couragement which comes from the rallying cheers of borne people. Le- Mars last Saturday defeated Onawa, 3G 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 antag- onists 10 to 15 pounds to the man, and played with greater assurance. It was plain from the outset that the visitors were outclassed, snd Correc- ionville successfully bucked the line, mnted or ran around the ends with- 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 ac- complish. They show up better in the old fashioned, close game. The first half with th-i score 36 to 0. In the last half Coach ilrewster utilized most of his second earn, giving the lads some active work-aut in which they showed np exceedingly well. Rockwell City is lardly equal to the task of giving the orrectionville first team a real tussle, but the came afforded the locals mighty good drill for what is before ;hem. Nine touchdowns were made and Barron kicked goal each time in as fine a series of kids as could be wished. The game was officered by Allen Uerkstresser of Morningside college as refereu and by Louis Falk of Hock- well City, as umpire. Mr. Falk who .3 a business man of Rockwell City was right tackle for Chicago Universi- ty in 1907-08, and has given his home iigh school team a few pointers, al- hough no regular coach is employed. Ed Petty was head lineman and Prof. T. B. Morris and Merle Leonard, time- keepers. The Rockwell City team lined np as 'ollows: Williams, right end; Steven- son, right tackle; Grant, right guard; javender, center; Downing, left uard; Huff, left tackle; Miles, left Knapp, quarter; Packard, left half; Fisher, fullback; Oldfield, right alf. Ida Grove was defeated last Satur- day by Lake City, 2 to 0. Lake City be Saturday previous defeated Rock- well City, 11 to 4, and last Saturday Correctionville walloped Rockwell Jity 54 to 0. Ida Grove will doubt- 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 ns- ng to play Correctionville last Satur- 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 larger-boys 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. Swisher who has had charge for the last three years has quit teaching and gone into farming in Northeastern Nebraska. Pierson, like Sergeant Bluff, made an entire change this year in the teaching force. Supt. Chavere ac cepted a position in Minneapolis am the two Misses Polley accepted school iu Washington. The. other teacher did not report where they at worl yet. The new teachers are all ei perienced. Supt. Flitner was principa at Alyord last year, and; Mrs. Jay ant her daughter were teaching at Jeffer MB, Iowa. Mn.
