Last Saturday night Jenkins hall
was filled to overflowing to witness
the play Valley Farm," a domestic
drama In four acts, rendered solely
by home talent. It Is not necessary
to remark that each one acted their
parts to perfection, and several play
ed like professionals. The Journal
expected a write-up from one who
was there, but the same failed to
show up. The play was given for
the benefit of the Christian church,
amounted to over $90. 00, which sure
ly demonstrated that the people of
Murray appreciate the efforts of the
young people of that town. Miss
Pauline Oldham, who managed the
affair deserves great credit for her
efforts in drilling the players, and In
bringing It to a successful conclu
sion. Next week we will give a more
complete write-up of the event.

Ill Honor Jake Itrendel.
Everybody calls Dr. J. F. Rrendel,
of Murray, Jake. He Is quite pop
ular with all who know him, and they
all know that he is soon to lead to the
hymenlal altar one of the most ac
complished and successful teachers
In Cass county. In honor of this
event his male friends of Murray en
tertained him Tuesday evening, or
night, in a manner that was most
highly appreciated. Among the
amusements was a mock trial, in
which Dr. Gilmore performed the
part of attorney on one side, and It
Is said that the speech he made In
defense of the plaintiff, reminded
some of the speeches of Champ Clark
of Missouri. They came to the con
elusion after the speech that Doc had
missed his calling and should have
been a lawyer. We cannot eniimcr
ate the many other amusements, suf
fice is to say that Dr. Hrendel highly
appreciated the good time, as did
all the friends present.
King Mill vs.
George Smith and family were
looking after the "Bucks of the Tim
ber" today, when they stopped at
Fred Patterson's to ask after the
health of his family they were not
allowed to go any further until af
ter dinner. When Mr Smith was
told that Mrs. Patterson was baking a
nineteen pound fish he was willing
to stay and just as he was loosening
his belt and making ready for a
square meal Mark White and wife
drove up. When Mr. Smith saw Mr.
White his face grew long and he
buckled up his belt a few Inches
thinking that extra space was not
needed. After the dinner was over
the evening was spent visiting.
