A Coming Social Event Crop Prospects Good and Farmers Happy
- Elaborate preparations are being made for the leap year ball to be given by the Woman’s Suffrage association on Monday evening, the 29th inst. The committee in charge are doing everything possible to make it a grand success socially, and it goes without saying that it will be one financially. Something of a novelty will be introduced in the shape of a lady orchestra and lady prompter, who have been engaged for the evening. This will make it a ladies night in very deed.
- The Misses Millie and Nora Bonnemort entertained the members of the Social and Literary society most pleasantly at their home las evening. The members were not all present owing to the inclement weather, but the raging elements without only added to the enjoyment within, and those fortunate enough to be present will not soon forget the evening spent as guests of their estimable hostesses. Numerous games, interspersed with a delightful musical programme, formed the amusements of the evening. A lunch was served at about 11 o’clock, and it was early morn’ when the guests departed.
- The Social and Literary society’s flower ball on Monday evening will be the social event of next week, and is being looked forward to with pleasurable anticipation.
- Mrs. Ellen Knowlton gave a social party to a few invited friends last Wednesday evening, in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of her natal day. Those present had a delightful time.
- A number of young people spent Tuesday evening at a dancing party as guests of Miss Annie Barton.
NOTES ON THE SIDE.
- Sleigh-riding is a thing of the past.
- Crop prospects for 1892 are very good, and the farmers are correspondingly happy.
- “Chubby” Arnold, the genial music dealer of the Junction City, was in the city yesterday.
- The friends of Mrs. C. Burton jr., will be pleased to learn that she is very much improved in health and is able to be out.
- The business men here report a gratifying increase of business during the last, and they are expecting a lively trade during the spring months.
- County Attorney T. H. Phillips and City Marshal Walter H. Barton went down to the capital on business yesterday and re- turned last evening.
- Through the prompt and effectual quarantine which was placed upon the families who were afflicted with diphtheria, the dis- ease has been kept under control and has spread no farther that the cases already reported. The patients are all convalescing.
- The Bountiful paper, the Little Clipper, has failed to make its appearance so far for the month of February, and we are left in the dark as regards the current topics on which it treats. Wonder what’s the matter?
- The higher department of the Eighth district school will be closed during all of next week, as the principal Mr. James H. Linford, jr., will be called north to Logan, on important business. A curious coincidence is that a certain young lady is going north the same day, and rumor says both are going an the same business. Should matrimony ensue we desire to congratulate in advance.
- The Union Pacific night office at this place has been abandoned and Mr. Will Taylor, who has hold the position of night operator for two years past, has forsworn his allegiance to the U. P. and will accept a lucrative position in Salt Lake as bookkeeper and probable partner of W. H. Wilkinson when that gentleman opens his crockery and glassware store on March 1.
- “C. T.,” of Farmington, has succeeded in getting himself in a very unpleasant position, and has made himself the laughingstock of THE HERALD readers, through his correspondence relative to Kaysville, that has appeared in these columns during the past few weeks. Some of his statements will not bear the scrutiny of a truthful investigation, and others are so ludicrous and nonsensical as to be mirth-provoking. The article in last Tuesday’s HERALD was no exception to the rule. Some “facts” that have come to our knowledge of late, indicate that he has been sat down upon in a very decieded manner by some of those he counted upon for support. In this dilemma some kind friend should take pity on him and drag him in out of the wet.
KAYSVILLE, Feb. 20, 1892.
