SURPRISE.

The young friends of Paul NEWBERRY planned a pleasant surprise in his honor, Monday evening. Marching in a body to the NEWBERRY home they found Paul - well he was hardly ready for the occasion; but after washing his face and donning his "Sunday best" he was ready for the good time which followed. After fun and games the young people produced baskets filled with good things, and the way those good things disappeared was good to see. Bidding their young host good night they departed - home? Well yes; thought we understand they did not forget that it was the good old Halloween time. We do not think, however, that they are responsible for the rubbish around the town pump the following morning.
