The first of the winter series of club dances was held at Hipke's hall on Friday evening last and will be held regularly every two weeks hereafter. The club membership numbers twenty-five or thirty couples and considerable fun is ground out on these occasions. The nimbleness of Mayor Lusk, Dr. McCutcheon, Thos. Mosher, and C. H. Sheldon is excellently shown in their graceful movements and apparent forgetfulness of all earthly things, and serves to make a dizzy feeling pervade the atmosphere when at their best.
