ESTELLA MCDOUGALL CELEBRATES FOURTH BIRTHDAY
Dainty little invitations issued last week bidding a number of little folks to come from two until five, and help little Estella McDougall celebrate her fourth birthday on Tuesday, May 25. The little ones were able to play out on the lawn, and their shouts of joy and laughter could be heard for many blocks.
Towards the end of the afternoon they were bidden to a table artistically decorated to represent a circus, with balloons, animals and red and white blue snappers. The favors were the animals and the snappers which contained paper hats of different colors.
F.J. MURPHY TO COACH DENVER UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL TEAM
Last week F. J. Murphy, secretary of the Royal Tiger Mines Co., signed a contract to coach the football teams of the Denver university this coming fall.
He does not intend to change his residence from Breckenridge, but felt his work on the team next fall will represent his vacation from the strenuous duties at the mine.
BRECKENRIDGE BASEBALL SEASON BEGINS TOMORROW
The baseball season of Breckenridge will open tomorrow. The Tiger camp are boasting of a championship ball team and have challenged the local boys to a game, which will be called late tomorrow afternoon, so as not to interfere with the Memorial Day parade or services at the cemetery. The game will probably begin at 3:30 or 4 p.m., after services for Memorial Day are over.
The game promises to be hotly contested. The Tiger boys aim to win the honors, that they may defend the title against outsides, which local pride will urge our own boys to victory.
