  • A glorious New Year to all Burnet County, and everybody else.  We had a merry Christmas.  Have heard of nobody being hoggish drunk.  While it is good to be a total abstainer, it is better to be moderate and temperate.  We had parties and frolics galore, and prayer-meetings some, and we are sorry to say that a good many more attended the parties than the prayer-meeting.  Lord help us, where are we at?
  • Had a big kinfolk dinner at C. P. Thompson's last Wednesday.  Poor old turkey!
  • There was a pleasant entertainment at Mr. John Parry's Friday night.
  • Had a box supper at Sam Taylor's Wednesday night, which was a social success.
  • There was a social entertainment at H. R. Barber's Christmas night, and a jolly good time was had.
  • Mr. George Price has been home through Christmas, but we understand he has gone back to his position at Galveston.
