          Miss Hazel Lisher, the little daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Lisher,  entertained a dozen of her little friends at her elegant home in North Tompkins street at a Valentine party Friday night.  The little ladies were first taken to the Alhambra where they saw a good show.  The evening was spent in games and amusements such as a jolly bunch of little girls know how to arrange and carry out.  The favors were red hearts.  Refreshments of pine apple ice, two kinds of cake, delicious punch and mints were served.  The girls certainly had a good time with their little hostess.
          Those present were  Ruth Craig,  of Greenwood;  Marion VanWay,  Pauline Blair,  Ruth Cross,  Helen Wilson,  Frances Phares,  Virginia Morrison,  Catherine Williams,  Mildred Mahan,  Martha Montgomery,  Norma Haymond  and  Lorene Klare.

          Erskine Lisher, who lives north of town, completed Thursday what is said to be the handsomest barn in Shelby county, but not the largest.  It stands on a stone foundation, has a slate roof and cupalo, the structure being painted with lead colors, the body being a light shade of yellow and the trimmings white.  It contains every thing in the way of modern barn hardware.

          Mr. Joseph Chez,  formerly teller of the Farmers National Bank at Shelbyville, and who is well and favorably known over all the county, has returned from Washington D. C., where he graduated from the leading law schools, and is now with us to remain permanently.  Mr. Chez has formed a partnership for the practice of the law with  Mr. A. E. Lisher,  who has been with  Adams & Carter  during the past two years, and whose acquaintanceship extends beyond the limits of our county.  These gentlemen have opened up their offices over the Farmers' National Bank, Shelbyville, where they will be glad to see their many friends whether calling socially or professionally.  We predict splendid success for this new law firm of  Lisher & Chez  processing[sic] as they do all the elements of character, ability and push to establish themselves in the front rank of the Shelby County Bar.
