         Pleasant Evening at Lake View.

      A very pleasant hop was indulged in at Lake View Wednesday evening. About sixteen couples were out to this favorite resort in the afternoon and evening, taking along Prof. Dresskell's orchestra and material for an oyster supper. Col. [sic] and Mrs. Sleeper were present to receive them. They tripped the "light fantastic" until 12 o'clock when supper was served, and then dancing resumed until about 3 o'clock a. m., when the party returned to Brainerd, all agreeing that they had a most enjoyable time. Those present were—Mrs. Campbell and daughter, May, Mrs. and Miss Mamie Metcalf, Aggie, Sue and Bessie Mulrine, Mrs. A. V. Snyder, Miss Effie Halstead, Mrs. Ames, Mrs. W. A. Smith, Mrs. Starkey, Mrs J. L. Smith, Mrs. Ed. Hazen, Miss Small, Mr. G. N. Day, W. A. Smith, W. S. McClenahan, Fred Stanley, Ed. Hazen, J. L. Smith, J. J. Howe, Jr., J. Cohen, Fred Parker, A. V. Synder, Mrs. Starkey, C. D. Johnson, Charley Taylor and Eugene Moore. (Brainerd Dispatch, 19 November 1886, p. 4, c. 5)

      A. W. Miller has started a stage between Brainerd and Lake View. The stage leaves the bank corner at 8 a.m., and 1:30 p.m., each day. The round trip is 75 cents. (Brainerd Dispatch, 07 June 1889, p. 4, c. 4)

                        For Rent.
      I would like to rent my residence property for one year to suitable parties. Enquire evenings at residence from 6 to 9 p.m.
                            MRS. SARAH L. SLEEPER.
(Brainerd Dispatch, 01 March 1889, p. 4, c. 4)

      A. J. Halsted has leased the Sleeper residence on 8th street north, and will take up his residence there at once. (Brainerd Dispatch, 15 March 1889, p. 4, c. 3)

      The old Broadway hotel, at the corner of Eighth and Laurel streets, belonging to the Sleeper estate, is being taken down and moved away by Mr. Wager. The building was one of the first erected in the city and has long since seen its useful days. (Brainerd Dispatch, 15 April 1892, p. 4, c. 3)

                  Recovered Her Boa.

      The St. Cloud Journal-Press says there was a lively scene at the Northern Pacific depot last Friday afternoon when the local train pulled in. One of the passengers was Mrs. Sarah L. Sleeper, of Brainerd. Sitting in front of her were a young girl and her brother, who live on the East side. Just as the train pulled into St. Cloud the girl reached over and pulled a valuable fur boa off Mrs. Sleeper's seat, gave it to the boy, who ran out of the train, and started across the prairie for home. Mrs. S. at once notified Officer Craig, who was at the station, and he started in pursuit. A young man on a bicycle came to his aid, and soon captured the young lad, and brought him back to the station, where the train had been held. No arrests were made. (Brainerd Dispatch, 12 June 1896, p. 4, c. 6)

      Mrs. S. L. Sleeper has sold her fine lots at the corner of Laurel and Eighth streets to Mons Mahlum, who expects to substantially improve them in the near future. (Brainerd Dispatch, 18 August 1899, p. 8, c. 1)

In October 1907, Mrs. Loren F. Bois [sic] [Boies] sells her residence property on North Broadway, known as the Sleeper property, to Mons Mahlum. The consideration was $2,100. (This Was Brainerd, Brainerd Dispatch, Tuesday, 09 October 2007)
