"A Visit to Toyland" is the name of the operetta to be presented by the first six grades, and in addition to this there will be other .plays and music. A vested and candle lighted ihristmas carol choir of sixty voices will sing the familiar ihristmas carols as a feature of :he evening's entertainment. In the operetta a piece of stage scenery will be used, — a jastle—that is rather unusual. It is the property of Miss Maxwell and was used by her at Osage when she presented the same operetta there.

The answer is this: No one bought it. The tree was donated by John Krohmer, south of town. It has been well trimmed with lights and is a beautiful sight at night. Sam Kirkman did a lot of butchering out at the farm Monday. He had only one hog he thought was big enough to make the job worth while, but that hog weighed 750 Ibs. When Jim Barber stopped a the J. B. Wood home at midnight Tuesday night and tolc Joe his house was afire, Joe put in a hurry-up call for the fire department. He then dressed and went out to see how the fire was coming along. One look convinced him it wasnt enough of a fire to bother the department with so he used a couple of buckets of water on it and put it out. The fire wa caused by a spark from the chimney that had set a shingle afire. Damage done to the roof was slight. $2,000 or more in 1914 one had e ven dreamed of things that are standard.
