The most fashionable and enjoyable event of the season, was the dance given at the residence of Mr. J. R. Fleury's Friday night. A large and merry throng crowded the hospitable and pleasant house. The cities of Edna and Ganado were well represent-ed. Among those present were Misses Minnie and Josie LaBauve and Mable White, Messrs. Howard and Ed. Connely, Tom and Lucioius Sanford, Archie and Eugene McDowel, Stanley and Jack Billups, Covington, Kleas, Putnam and Davenport, of Edna; Misses Brown, LaBauve, Robertson, Abernathy and Hughes, Messrs. Brown, Whitney, LaBauve and Abernathy of Ganado; Messrs. Lee Bronaugh, Dobbins, Zack and James Partain, of Deming's Bridge; Messrs. Willie Rose, Geo. Lafay and Hal McChesney and Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Logan, of West Caranchua; Misses Logan, Tenie Holmes, McBarlane and Fleury, Messrs. Fleury, McDonald,  Rhodes and Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Logan, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Logan and families, of Caranchua. Supper such as would tempt the strictest epicure was served in daintiest form. Dancing was opened at an early hour and the lovers of his infatuating majesty Pterpsichore paid tribute to his shrine till "Old Sol" put an end to the festivities. We all thank Mr. and Mrs. Fleury for a most delightful evening.

Mr. and Mrs. H. J. LaBauve, of Edna, are visiting friends and relatives in Matagorda County. They also participated in the dance Friday night.

Mr. J. H. Logan has sold his home to Mr. Washington, of Manor, Tex., and has located in Edna, Jackson county. We are sorry to lose such an estimable family, but wish them much success in their new home.

Messrs. T. W. Sanford and C. H. Whitney, of Edna, were visiting at Caranchua last Sunday.
