MASQUERADE BALL
UNDER AUSPICES OF THB MERRITT
ATHLETIC CLUB.
Large Crowd   of Masqueraders    and
Spectators Attend First Annual
Ball In Menzies Large
New Hall.
On New Year's eve at Menzies new hall a grand masquerade ball was given under the
auspices of the Merritt Athletic Club. About the hour of
7:30 p. m., the masquers began to assemble and the hall
was rapidly being filled up
with a gay and mirth loving
crowd. The costumes were as
a whole both unique and
charming and kept an interested audience guessing as to
the identity of the disguised
ones. Whilst it is invidous to
mention any of the costumes
many were specially worthy of
notice,
The arrangements of the
hall were in the hands of the
dance committee, consisting of
Messrs. Pyle, Conklin, Sut-
cliffe and Adams, and the sup
per was attended to by the
ladies to whom the Merritt
Athletic Club takes this opportunity of tendering a hearty
vote of thanks for their contributions and untiring efforts
to make the ball the huge success that it was.
Punctually at 9 o'clock the
proceedings opened with the
grand march followed by the
Circassian circle. Dancing was
kept up with spirit until 12:30
o'clock when the order to unmask was given, much to the
relief of those engaged as the
masks were very warm. After
a few more dances the hour
being midnight, the majority
adjourned to an informal supper in Hyland hall. Refreshments over dancing was resumed and kept up until 2:30
a.m , when the crowd dispersed
all agreeing that the Merritt
Athletic Club had organized
one of the most successful balls
in the history of Nicola Valley.
The dance room is upstairs
in the hall which Mr. Menzies
has erected and who has shewn
commendable forethought in
putting up such a large building for the pleasure of the people of the valley. Below is a
list of the masqueraders and
their costumes:

Music and Songs
Well Rendered.
A Christmas tree and entertainment under the Auspices of the
Lower Nicola Literary Club was
held in the Hall at Lower Nicola
on Wednesday evening, December
23rd. An elegant tree was furnished by the young men, and got
loaded with presents by the ladies
and gentlemen of the Club and the
parents of the school children.
The Hall was decorated in a magnificent style by Messrs, Wallace,
Grote & Bailey. At 8 p.m. the
Hall was crowded, and the chair
was taken by the Rev. O. M. Sanford.
The chairman opened the programme with a short address, then
a chorus by the vocal talents was
rendered in splendid form ; next
was a song by the school children,
' 'In the Laud of Somewhere,'' and
the manner in which it was sung
reflected credit on their late teacher, Mrs. C. P. Starrett. The
schoolchildren also sang a character
song entitled "You Mustn't," in
which Freddie Mr-Innis and Flora
Jackson acted their part excellent.
A vocal duet by Misses Pearl Mc-
Innis and Bertha Woodward was
well applauded. Piano duets were
well rendered by the Misses Mc-
Goran of Canford, P. Mclnnis and
F. Jackson, also Mrs. Starrett and
Myrtle Woodward, and piano solo
by Olive Smith.
The great success of the evening
was the comic songs of Ed. Fyall,
in character costumes and the
audience were kept in roars of
laughter by this versatile comedian.
Very nice selections of music were
rendered by A. and C. Collett on
the harmonica.
The closing item of the program
was a chorus, "Ring the Bells,"
then the ladies of the club served
very tastily and inviting refreshments to all present.
Santa Clans and his old mother
Christie (A, E. P>all and Mrs. R.
Johnston) then distributed the presents from the tree, and also a good
many presents that could not be
put on the tree on account of its
already loaded condition, amid
great enjoyment of the children
and their parents too. The
National Anthem was sung by all
present and good wishes exchanged
then everyone went on their way
in happy frame of mind, each one
declaring that this was tne finest
Christmas tree function that has
ever been held in the Nicola valley.
Social Entertainment.
A social ^entertainment was
given by the Ladies of ^Middlesboro on New Years ^Eve
in Carrington's Hall to the
young men. It was well attended and numerous songs
