Last Friday evening a crowd of our young people went to a social up at Frank Picket’s new house.
Those in attendance were: J. W. Gardiner and wife, Misses Finch, Biggar, Heath, Crowell, Hanson, Damon, and Griffin and Mrs. Damon and Whitmore.
Oh yes! And Will LaFever went too but he - well, he didn’t go in the load. All enjoyed the social very much and as for the new house the old "house of seven gables" can not compare with this one of eleven gables. One young lady was heard to remark that she would like to live there, but you must promise not to tell the young man who lives there.
