The Old Maids' Conention.
One of he most enjoyable
entertainments piven in Murray
for many a day was the Old Maids'
Convention, given at Jenkins' hall
last, Saturday evening by the,
ladies of the Aid society, under
the direction of Mrs. J. F. Mrendel.
The attendance was very large,
the receipts being almost $90,
which will go into the treasury of
I he society after the expenses are
paid. The great, transforming
scene, the wonderful doctor, his
powerful remedies and his mon
ster transforming machine was,
of course, a feature part of the
entertainment, at which time each
menuier oi trie convention was
transformed into the character of
their choice. The ladies were all
excellent in tin; characters thev
represented, as well as the doctor,
and many of whom are deserving
of personal mention, but not wit
nessing the performance the
writer is unable to give such men
tion, so all we can say is as they
told us they were all good. All
are praising the excellent work of
Mrs. Mrendel in directing and
staging the production.
