parture aad arrival of friends; remember that the

The Misses Eloise and Julia Euper, sis-

The Knights of Labor observed Wash-
ington’s birthday with a grand ball at the
Gallagher Hall. The attendance was quite
large, about seventy-five couples partici-
pating in the dance. There was no for-
mality, no attempt at a lurid display of
ball room toilets, it was a free and easy
social event, without the conventionality
of ball room etiquette. We never saw a
more happy lot of people, and we doubt
very much if a more agreeable affair has
taken place this season. The music was
splendid; Prof. Rosenberg with his band
of five musicians did themselves credit.
The hall was beautifully decorated with
evergreens and there was a proper display
of the national colors. The ball opened
with the grand march at about 9 o’clock
and the merry dancers did not disperse
until long after the dial had pointed the
One of the greatest society events in
the history of Parsons, Kan., took place
the past week, the marriage of Miss Hattie
C. Bing to Wm. Lehman was solemnized.
Every one turned out to do honor to the
couple. The costumes of the following
ladies, who are frequent visitors to our
city, wsll be read with interest:
Mrs. W. K. Maxwell, gown of black
Spanish guimpure lace, overslip of black
satin, moire sash, garniture consisting of
flots ot pink and blue narrow ribbons,
high coiffure en poudre, surmounted with
pink and blue ostrich tips; diamonds.
Mrs. “Chick” Warner, frock of cream
Spanish lace over satin same shade, gar-
niture of cream satin ribbons, Roman
pearls and fine Bowers, hair en pompa-
Mrs. Ben Brown, costume of black
satin mcrvelleaux, richly jetted cuirass

ments, hair arranged high clasped with
Miss Lida Daniels who resides near
Kentucky town, has been in the city the
past week the guest of friends.
Mrs. Hunn of Denton was in the city
the early part of the week, visiting her
sister, Mrs. Barbour, on Fannin Ave.
Miss Jennie Wheeler of Cambridge is
visiting Miss Libbie Manners on West
One evening during the past week a
young gentleman of this city escorted a
tair maiden to a hop. While there a
misunderstanding arose between them,
whereupon he refused toescoit her home.
Of course this was very unsatisfactory to
the family of the young lady and trouble
was looked for. The young lady was con-
sidered at fault by her parents and it is
believed thet she was confined in a room
for three davs as a means of punishment,
and that she is to be sent to a convent.
Mrs. P. F. Henley of Gainesville, wife
of conductor Henley of the Mo. Pac. Ry.,
was in tire city last week visiting her Den-
ison triends. Mr. and Mrs. Henley were
former residents of Denison and havn’t
lost all of their charms for their first love
—Denison. The Gazetteer looks for-
ward to the day with great anxiety, when
Mr. Henley and his most excellent wife
will return to reside.
Miss Imogene Walker, one of the teach-
ers of the public schools, suffered trom
sore eyes the first part of the week, but
lias now recovered.
The Gazetteer learns that a good
number of the ladies in Denison have de-
cided to adopt a style in vogue in the
eastern cities. The ladies are to select a
certain day in the week which will be
known as "reception day.” For instance,
some will have Tuesday, some Wednes-
day, and some Thursday. Bv this wav
the ladies visiting one another may rely
on finding the lady whom they wish to
visit at home. The day to be designated
on their visiting cards,
Mrs. Dr. Rhea who has been visiting
friends in Greenville, will return to her
Denison home to-day. The doctor went
after her Saturday.
The Bachelors’ Club and friends tend-
ered Mr. and Mrs. James D. Leeper of
Coleman, Tex., a complimentary hop at
the Colonnade Hotel, Friday evening.
Mrs. P. F. Henley of Gainesville called
at the Gazetteer Thursday and renewed
her subscription for another year.
The report that young Mr. Nicewarner
was recently married, is premature, he is
still on the list.
Misse Jenuie and Lee Rue were in the
city last Sunday, to attend the funeral of
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Daugherty’s little son.
Washington’s birthday was celebrated
by a large number of private hops.

On retiring from the editorship of the Morning
News, Mr. Moss Harris gives utterance to some
bold, brave words. Harris is a writer who is never
at a loss for s moment to express himself in clear,
lucid and forcible language. No one need group
in the dark xs to his meaning. While we do not
approve ot his course, on some public questions,
our admiration for him as a newspaper man is
none the leas sincere. He is, unquestionably, one
of the brightest newspaper men in tee state, and
the good work that he has done to advance the
material interests of Denison should not be for-

gets” comedv company commenced a
three night’s engagement at Gray’s opera
house, Houston, last Tuesday evening.
This is another company playing at re-
duced prices. The company is spoken of
In very high terms, and is said to be
the equal of many charging -fifty cents
and one dollar.
The so-called young ladies’ base ball
club was in Houston again last Tuesday.
Houston is reported as being a dead show
town, but from the number of visits made
by this so-called young ladies’ base ball
club, we should judge that female ball
playing was the popular pastime indulged
in by the amusement-loving people of
Houston. No wonder the drama is be-
low par in that city. ,.
Mikado, to be produced by home talent
at the McDougall opera house shortly, is
being rehearsed, and trom the sample
listened to the other night, through the
telephone, we can assure our citizens that
this opera will be creditably rendered by
the Denison ladies and gentlemen taking
part in the same.

ROBINSON, “TOE HARDWARE
The “Little Nugget” company, which
met with good success during their en-
gagement at Grav’s Opera House, Hous-
ton, last week, gave a performance Friday
evening for the benefit of Mrs. Williams,
wife of Henry Williams, who was shot in
that city a few weeks since by young
Bidwell’s Stock Company that occu-
pied the boards at the McDougall, Satur-
day evening a week ago, was the best
dramatic event of the season, and those
who failed to see this excellent company
in the historical drama of “Taken From
Life” missed a performance, its equal
seldom seen on the boards at our opera
house, and for a Saturday night turn out
we think, speaks very well for the appre-
ciation Denison people have for first-class
The harp, on which the great Irish
poet, Tom Moore, played, is now in the
possession of Mr Childs, of Philadelphia,
who granted Mr. W. J. Scanlan, the tal-
ented young Irish comedian ,now making
a tour of Texas, permission to photo-
graph it to present to admiring friends
throughout the country. A dramatic
club of Houston was presented with one
the other day as a token of esteem from
Prof. Andress, whom our people will
remember as being with us last year with
«his carnival of novelties and trained ani-
mal show, is now in the state. The Pro-
fessor is now traveling over the country
in his own car, carrying a large specialty
company of acrobats, tumblers, contor-
tionists, jugglers and musical mokes. He
also has 25 educated tropical birds, 10
performing Brazilian dogs, assisted by his
wonderful clown dog, Fritz, a herd of
performing Rocky Mountain goats and a
superb silver cornet band of ten pieces.
He was in Mineola Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, and may possibly visit Deni-
son before leaving the state.
The Dallas News has the following to
say about the Bidwell Stock Company
and the failure of this company to en-
thuse Dallas drama-loving people. Say

The Bidwell Stock Core _
Lite** last evening to a small auuicucc* uuasug au
engagement that proved as unsatisfactory in a fi-
nancial sense as it was successful in point of merit
and artistic work. No apparent cause can be ad-
duced for this marked exhibition of ai
indifference on the part of the Dai
toward a series of the most finished and intellect
ually brilliant entertainments ever given at the
opera house. The mere facts are stated; the
causes are beyond the ken of mortal apprehen-
sion. Theoretically* the public majr sigh tor high
art; practically* the measure of their esthetic am-
bition is filled with—a cheap chromo. "Alvin

comparison that, in the light of recent events* will
seem dire irony?

Little Bed Passes Beyond.
It was a beautiful day in December
while our reporter was strolling down
Main street, that his attention was called
to a baby buggy’ that stood on the side-
walk in front of Hallenbeck’s. In the
crib lay a child that was 6nuggly tucked
up, only the face being visible. While we
stood looking into the crib, the father
came out and we made the rematk,
“Charley, what a pretty baby you’ have.
The mother, we thought, heard the re-
mark, and an expression of exaltation
suffused the lady’s face. The father and
mother were Mr. and Mrs. Charles T.
The babe that lay in the craddle is dead.
It was the most perfect picture ot health
that we ever saw; great fat dimpled
cheeks, red pouting lips and soft blue
eyes, that beamed with an expression of
joy. Little did we dream that in the short
space of a few weeks the little form would
be blighted by the touch of death, and the
beautiful immage ot loveliness and inno-
cence be consigned to the tomb.
There are some periods in human life
when we become reconciled to death, but
when the little ones are taken from us, it
is a loss that no earthly power can com-
pensate, under such circumstances even
what is known in the world as Christian
resignation is a poor boon to sooth the
lacerated hearts of parents. Little Ned,
at the time of his death, had just crawled
the threshold of one year. The child was
teething and fell into a stupor from
which it never rallied. The disease baffled
the skill and cunning ot our best phy-
sicians, and on Sunday, Feb. 21, little
Ned left his father and mother for what
many believe is a better world.
The child in death was even more beau-
tiful than in life. Death had robbed the
cheeks of that lovely bloom which only
children have, the lustre erf the eyes was
dimmed, but there was about the little
mute face that immaculate purity which
was as white and delicate as the marble
that dots the resting place of the loved
and lost who have gone beyond.
The tuneral service took place from the
family residence on Woodard street and
was largely attended by those who sym-
pathized with the father and mother. The
remains were interred in Fair View cem-
etery, close beside his aunt Hattie Daugh-
erty-CoUins. And now we leave the pa-
rente to their griet, for sorrow is always
holy and sacred and never more so then
in the case when the first born is snatched
away. It seems to us that there can be
nothing more appalling to our human
sympathy than the picture of such loss;
it is travisity to attempt to doubt it.
Most Have Boom.
