The fierce storm of Monday night seriously interfered with the anticipated attendance at the Masquerade ball, but there was a fair attendance and all who braved the storm were amply repaid for the discomforts attending the trip to the ball.
Nearly all in attendance were in costume and many were the characters represented. Tee cash prize for the best original costume was awarded to Miss Antonia Manrequez who represented the United States and R. Freeman and P. Brite in Highland costume.
At twelve o’clock the revelers adjourned to the “Silver Moon” restaurant for supper, after which dancing was continued until the “wee sma” hours.
