Col. Temple Houston, the distinguished criminal lawyer of Woodward County has been in this city for the last ten days in attendance at the District Court.

The annual banquet of the Coterie Club was one of the notable events of the holiday season. Husbands of the ladies of the Coterie spent the one perfectly happy evening of the year.

On New Year's Eve, as is their custom, the fair dames invited their lesser halves and a few guests to enter their charmed circle and for a few hours to be entertained royally, both intellectually and physically.

The Delta HOtel was the place and every detail of the banquet showed the skillful management of those who are able to say "I told you so," when anything goes wrong. The dining room was elaborately decorated in the colors of the Coterie, orange and white. Beautiful flowers gladdened the eye and perfumed the air. Each member and guest were presented with a bouquet of Holly and Running Pine sent all the way from Maryland by Linda E. Murdaugh, a former member in token of the remembrance of happy association in the past. Mrs. O'Brian, as President, made all welcome and anticipated every wish. Dr. Patton was Toast Master and fully did his duty in representing the happy husbands. Miss Ida B. Lee in her ever happy style made us welcome and sorry that we cannot be members of the Coterie. The toasts replied to by the husbands are hardly worth mentioning but the music furnished by the members was excellent and well worth waiting a whole year to hear.

The Banquet in all things was a grand success as everything is that the dear women do all by their lone selves. The writer is only sorry that New Year's does not come oftener.


On New Year's day Jeff Warren surprised the natives. He came to town and looked innocent while contemplating an important step in life. At high noon he was married to Miss Ida M. Coots. Only a few intimate friends were present. Jeff is one of the pioneers of Woodward and everybody is his friend. A few months ago he moved to Cestos. Miss Coots was one of Woodward's most estimable young ladies and we are sorry to lose her. The Bulletin wishes the happy couple a long life and every goo thing desired. Mr. and Mrs. Warren left immediately after the ceremony for their home in Cestos where they will be glad to receive their friends.
