Stiner was formerly Miss Marie

daughter ever since that date, tr a

has been very lonely since and is
longing for the return of his good

of receiving a letter from Mrs.

"A Clieiiful Liar."
The play, "A Cheerful Liar" at
Jenkins' Hall Saturday night, was a
grand success In every particular,
There was an Immense crowd pres
ent. In fact people were turned
away. We would like to give special
mention of each character, but will
merely say that all did their parts
to perfection. Miss Margie Walker
as "Bill Boomer," was Elmply Im
mense, and her acting was like an
old hand at the business. There
was not a "slow poke" among the
players, all doing their parts In more
Ihnh a creditable manner. The
receipts were $125.00, which goes to
pay the Indebtedness Incurred by the
Lyceum course. The net amount
derived will pay the debt and leave
a neat little sum for next year.
Good for the young people of Mur
ray. They deserve the praises of
every enterprising, energetic citizen
of this wide-awake little city. The
only thing to mar the pleasure of the
occasion was the rushing through
of the play to make ready for the
Mrs. S. O. Pit inn n Entertains.
The new home of Mr. and Mrs. S.
O. ritman was the scene of a happy
gathering Wednesday afternoon, the
occasion being an entertainment of
her lady friends by the lady of the
house. So private was the affair
that Mrs. Pitman would not even let
Sam remain around the house to
listen to the tete-a4ete that usually
takes place. The affair was arrang
ed on the porch, which was hand
somely decorated with flowers.
About the itlme they had talked
themselves hoarse, a three course
luncheon was served. Those present

A Propitious Day and Everybody
Mingled Together in a Patriotic
Old Sol was hidden behind a cloud
ed sky the entire day, making it an
Ideal one for comfort and pleasure.
Early in the morning there was
every Indication that there was to
be something doing in the little city.
Everybody was busy In the early
hours decorating their homes and
places of busluess.
This completed, the main street
I resented a gila t ttite. The vi,tUti-s
coming in on the 10 o'clock train
from the north were met at the de
pot by the band and a large dele
gation of people, and soon the line
of march was taken up for the
beautiful grove southeast of the
city, where the exercises were to
take place. At the grounds every
thing was indicative of a 4th of July
celebration. The baby racks, lemon-
.V.e and eating ,and3 were already
dishing out supplies to the thirsty
and hungry, and all seemed glad that
they were privlledged to once
more publicity reverve the memory
of those valliant patriots who fought
the fight of freedom that we might
today enjoy life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness under the broad
folds of the American flag.
Soon after arriving on the
grounds, the crowd was seated
around the stand erected and decor
ated with bunting for the occasion,
and after several numbers from the
Murray band, the morning program
began by an invocation from Rev.
Lamp. This was followed by a reci
tation from Mls3 Perry, who volun
teered her services, and so well did
she acquit herself, that she was
repaditly encored. Owing to the non-
arrival of Hon. D. W. Livingston,
of Nebraska City who was down for
a forenoon oration, the program was
changed somewhat, and County At
torney Ramsey occupied the time
allotted to Mr. Livingston, while the
latter gentleman occupied Mr. Ram
sty's time in the afternoon.
Mr. Ramsey was In excellent trim,
and his voice was as clear as a silvery
toned bell. He spoke on the lines
of the formation of this govern
ment and those noble patriots who
were Instrumental in giving such a
liberty as guaranteed to everyone w ho
sought refuge under that noble em
blem the Star Spangled Banner.
The young orator spoke for about
forty minutes, and the audience was
most attentive to every word he
said. Buoyed by the many hand
some, Cass county young ladies, who
were there in full 4th of July attlie
of F.uow-whlte gowns and contenancci
wreathing w ith smiles, stimulated our
young friend onward and upward in
his oratory. Many of the older resi
dents w.re there also to hc-a- what
Cass County's Pride had to say, and
they were all delighted, and, when
he had finished, eagerly grasped
him by the hand as an expression of
their appreciation of his great ef
fort. For it was a successful effort
and the subject a deep one which
many older heads would have feign
ed undertaken. Everybody felt
proud of our young County Attorney.
On re-assembling after dinner the
band discoursed several very Inter
esting .numbers, and then came the
flng drill by young girls which was
was grand, and showed that they
had been under the careful
supervision of a competent
Instructor. Tho little ladles per
formed their parts admirably. Then
came Miss Marie Douglass, of Platts
mouth, who completely captured th
crowd by her graceful manner In
declaiming. The young lady hns a
splendid voice and she spoke very
distinctly. She was admired by all,
and won the plandits of the entire
assemblage. After music by the
band, Rev. Lamp, pastor of the
Presbyterian church of Murray, ad
dressed the rrowd for a few mo
ments.and his remarks w ere well re
ceived. We think he did nobly.
Then came County Attorney Living
ston, of Nebraska City. Dan always
makes a good talk, whether political.
4th of July or otherwise. In start
ing from his home, after a few
miles away, his automobile broke
down and had to be taken back to
Nebraska City for repairs. This de
layed him several hours. Notwlth--tndlng
this misfortune, Mr. Llv
muston did his work well, and many
say It was among the most eloquent
orations they ever heard. He spoke
for nearly an hour ani pleased every
one. Then came the amusement pro
gram, consisting of ball games,
races, etc., which was carried out to
the letter, and enjoyed by old and
young alike. The contest between
Murray and Union, is said to have
been exceptionally interesting, and
resulted in a victory for the Murray
team. The crowd in attendance in
the afternoon was estimated at from
twenty-five hundred to three thous
and. Take it all-in-all the celebration
was a big success in every way, the
fine grove in which it was held being
one of the prettiest spots in Cass
county, and those who had the man
agement in charge, deserve credit for
their efforts. Rev. Lamp and Ora
Davl3 alternately performed the du
ties of president. The band did re
markably well, considering the fact
that it has only been organized about
six months, and have had an
Instructor but a very few
weeks. The play of "The Cheerful
Liar" In the evening was witnessed
by all that could possibly gain ad
mission to the hall, and all went
away well pleased, many expressing
themselves as being surprised to
know that' Murray young people
were able to produce such an Inter
esting performance. The Murray
young people certainly deserve great
credit. As usual, the day's enjoy
ment closed with a grand ball, after
the play was over, and the "tripping
of the light fantastic" continued un
til the wee small hours of the next
morning. There was quite a large
attendance, many young people com
ing on the evening train from Ne
braska City, Union and Nehawka.
