II BIS SUCCESS
Large Audience and All Proclaim
It the Finest Entertainment
Every Produced in Murray.
The home talent play and
musical farce produced at Mur
ray Saturday night, produced by
Miss Pauline Oldham of Murray
and Mrs. Edna Eton of this city,
was one of the most successful
public performances and drew the
largest audience ever assembled
in the Jenkins' hall. Doth Miss
Oldham and Mrs. Eaton are
artists in their particular lines,
Miss Oldham as a reader and
Mrs. Eaton as a singer, and they
possess great skill in imparting
their knowledge to others.
The individual performances,
both in the musical part of the
program and in the play, were of
high merit and only lack of space
prevents us from writing of each
performer in detail. The program
occupied two hours in giving, and
from the initial number to the
finale was appreciated and enjoy
ed by the crowd of listeners to the
The first number was a ladies'
quartet, sung by Misses Margie
Walker and Mattie Minniear and
Mesdames Loughridge and Ken
nedy; the title of the selection
was "Rock-a-Dye," by Neidlinger.
The second number was a mix
ed quartet, sang by Mrs. Kennedy,
Miss Walker, Messrs. O. A. Davis
and S. fl. Latta, the song being
"Sweet and Low," by Daraby.
A male quartet, composed of
Messrs. O. A. Davis, Guy Stokes,
W. C. Drown and S. G. Latta, sang
"Lazy Moon," by Stearns. .
The musical farce was then
given right-of-way, the title of
I be farce being "The Quiltin'
Ree." The characters of this
mirth-exciting number were: Mr9.
Shallow (hostess), Mrs. Holmes;
Heyzekiah Shallow (her hus
band), W. C. Drown; Rev. Liven
g'sod (in love with Prudence), Guy
Ctokes; Prudence Plump (who
likes the minister), Mattie Min
niear; Hannah Wasp (a gossip
age doubtful), Fay Oldham; Mrs.
Snaggs (who owns a goose), Mrs.
Loughridge; Widow Horner (in
her brand new dress), Mrs. Ken
nedy; Anna Maria Shallow ("my
darter"), Margie Walker; bass
solo (selected), Mr. S. G. Latta.
Every number of the musical
comedy was well rendered and the
approbation of the audience was
very marked and the perform

Minutes for Refreshments." The

This portion of the program
had been prepared under the skill
ful management of Miss Pauline
Oldham, and every person who
had a part in it gave a most
creditable performance. A travel-,
