HEREFORD AT CANYON.
The Rebeckah Degree Team Goes
to Canyon City.
The Canyon City people knowing
Hereford Rebeckah Lodge has the
best drilled team this side of Dallas
and Fort Worth, gave us an urgent
invitation to come to their little city
and institute a Rebeckah lodge for
them, which this team was delighted
to do. So on May 26th, Mrs. Clar-
ence Smith with her degree staff of
12 ladies, namely: Miss Mina
Dameron, Mesdames. Bessie Beach,
Delzia Johnson, Willie Gililland,
Mollie Smith, Effie Snyder, Lizzie
Dale, Mattie Clements, Mary
Myrick, Bessie Lovelace, Inez Stam-
baugh, Allie Elliston, with four vis-
iting brothers, Messrs. Elliston, P
L. Johnson, Geo. Dale and Turnbow.
They were m«t at the train by a
committee with three large auto's
who conducted us to the Odd Fellows
Hall there to meet some of the lead-
ing ladies of the town. After pass-
ing a very pleasant hour in that way
we were taken to the hotel where a
bountiful supper was served.
The auto's were lined up in front
of the hotel and we were all given a
; free ride over their beautiful little
city which we all enjoyed very much.
We returned just in time to march to
the hall where we found 8 brothers
and sisters in waiting to be taken in
by card and 42 to be initiated in the
mysteries of the Rebeckah degree,
i The work was conferred in a very
impressive manner by Hereford de-
gree team. After the closing drill
by this team we were invited to have
a short recess and we were taken to
' the cream parlor where another treat
was in store for us (cream and cake).
Will say right here the Canyon Sis-
jters can come up with the Hereford
'women in making excellent cakes.
We can not express our appreciation
of this treat for it come at a time
when we were tired and warm from
: our work and we certainly did jus-
tice to that part of the work. Feel-
ing greatly rested we returned to
the hall to proceed wrth nominations,
elections and installation of officers.
Their lodge starts out with very
bright prospects. Wednesday morn-
ing we were taken to the train in
autos by the same committee that
met us and we have a standing in-
vitation to visit them whenever it is
possible. We all came home feel-
ing that we had had the best time ot
our lives and declaring Canyon City
people the most royal entertainer it
ever has been our lot to be among.
We one and all give three cheers
for Canyons hospitality.

Hubbard & Barnett, Prorietors
of the store that sells only good
goods. Not hot air, mind you.
Not having any Slaughter Sale,
either. Notwithstanding the fact
that merchandise has seemingly
been given away in Hereford for
the past few weeks, our sales
show a nice increase over any
previous time since we entered
the Dry Goods business. This we
attribute to honest merchandis-
ing—Giving our customers what
they ask for; and at prices that
please. We shall continue our
business on these principles.
If you want honest goods at the
right prices kindly remember we
are at your service with the
largest and best selected stock
of high class goods in the city.

The Spelling Bee.
The old fashioned spelling bee
given last night under the auspices
of the Ladies' Home Mission Society
j of the Methodist church was largely
attended. After a short prelude
1 program the ladies and gentlemen
j lined up for the spelling. Mrs.
i John W. DeAtley was the champion
for the ladies and the peace editor
of The Brand for the gentlemen;
while the fighting editor acted as
pronouncer and judge. Tne Old
Blue Back was the book and the first
word missed was brier. The spell-
ing continued for an hour to the
amusement of the crowd until fianlly
only four stood : Mesdames DeAtley
and Short, Messrs. DeAtley and
¡Garrison. T hen the number was re-
I duced to just two : Mrs. DeAtley and
! Mr. Garrison. The contest lasted
for a few minutes when the last
man went down in defeat and the la-
dies were declared the winners.
The program rendered was entire-
ly pleasing consisting of music and
reading: Apiano duet by Misses
Black and Edwards, a solo by Miss
Ina Gregg, readings by Mrs. Thomas
Miss Gregg and Lois Garrison.
Ladies you should see
those new belts at The
Card of Thank.
We take this opportunity to thank
the good people of Hereford for the
generous and kindly help rendered
us during our sad bereavement in
the loss of a loving wife and fond
mother. May you not have to bear
such a sad affliction.
