Both boys are about okay again at this writing.

Mr. and Mrs. Otis Slocomb were given a delightful surprise Sunday evening when some 30 of their neighbors and close friends gave them a silver wedding anniversary surprise party, and besides furnishing the east for this occasion, left them lasting and appropriate souvenirs of the day, in substantial and useful gifts and a very social good time was had by all participating.

Mrs. Clemens Kuechenmeister is quite under the weather and confined to her home since Sunday.

Mrs. Geo. West entertained the Ladies Aid of the Ridge Church, at dinner on Wednesday.

Mrs. Will Kurth entertained the Ladies Aid of Rev. Reiff's Church on Wednesday afternoon and at supper.
