PINCHER CREEK r Creek, Oct. dance given by the Quadrilla Club on, Fri- day'night last was a thoroughly suc- cessful affair. There was a good at- tendance to begin with and the music rendered by the orchestra was of a really first class order, both of which facts tended to enhance the pleasur- able effects of the occasion.
