The home of Jacob Norris Saturday evening was the scene of the most pleasant affair of the season. Miss Mary will leave for Sioux City where she will engage in teaching school during the year. It was given in her honor and under her charming supervision the evening was made one of greatest enjoyment to all. The spacious parlor was thrown open to the pleasures of music, both instrumental and vocal. Delicate refreshments were served and the evening passed quickly by and only at a late hour were the guests willing to bid their farewells, wishing Miss Norris success. The guests who were so well entertained were: Misses Mable Kewley, Thena Russell, Alice Brown, Maggie Dukes, Maud Kewley, Daisy Coleman, Ida Dukes, Ida Coleman, Alice Dukes, Glendora Norris, Phrabe Norris.
