November lth is the next date of
the Murray Lecture Course, and will
be one of the best numbers of the en
tire series, The Edna Earl ('rum
Conceit Company. The people of this
vicinity are forgetting the one most
essential factor in the success of the
course this season, and that is the
patronage they should receive. The
ocurse is one of the best of the Ly
ceum Company, and is meeting with
great success everywhere, even in
much larger towns than Murray, and
there is no reason why the same re
port cannot be made from this town.
We simply lack the patronage at this
time. The Rill Rone number was well
eceived by all who were in attend
ance, and were really glad they were
there. If you have not already se
cured your tickets let your willingness
to support a course of this kind be
known at once by securing tickets for
the balance of the season. Remember
the next number will be a good one.

We Wonder Why?
Large Crowds Attend Every Session
and the Jud-;- Excludes all Under j
18 From the Court Room. ;
The Rhodvn divorce suit continued
all day yesterday and the afternoon
session drew an even larger crowd of
mot bid or. lookers, and the room was
packed to the doors, with a large num
ber standing in the hallways. The
plaintitf. Mis. Grace Rhoden, was on
the witness stand from 1:"0 in the
rooming i:nti! ":!." in the afternoon,
ai d her dire.-t examination occupied
the forenoon, while from l:lo until
.-he leTt the stand at the afternoon : e
sion she was subjected to a gruelling
cross-examination, and with the an
swer.; and apjia rent desire of the wit
ness to talk, made the examination
one that was loner drawn out, but did
not lose interest for the auditors, as
the rich, spicy nature of the testi
moi y kept everybody interested.
- At the close of the testimony of
Mrs. Rhoden, Or. B. F. Rrendel of
Munay was put on the stand nnd
testified as to a number of occasions
when lie bad treated Mrs. Rhoden and
of her being in the hospital.
Gladys Rhoden, the little daughter
of the plaintiff and defendant, was on
the stand in the last hours of the aft
ernoon ses-ion to corrabarate th"
statements of her mother as to the
languace uc- 1 by the father, and this
little, tiny child, with her childish lisp
:.v. ways, made a pathetic incident of
the trial of the ca.-e. which means
hereatfer a broken home and a lonelier
life for the little ones.
The ses.-ion this morning was oc
cupied by tl'.e pHintiff's side of the
case :i-d a number of witne-ses were
examined in support of this side of
the case. This morning Jud'e P. eg ley
orde'-ed that all persons under Is
years of age be excluded from the
court room, as the testimony was of
such a nuiute as to make it necessary
to see that the school children be ex
cluded from attetidan.ee at the court.
Yesterday a large number were on
1 and to take in the details of the case,
much to the displeasure of the court.
The defendant in the ca.-e was qui.e
ill this morning and unable to be pres
ent at most of the session of the court
and was compelled to have the attend
ance of a physician.

A depot stove was never Mavked.
Why some men blow their irose on
Why school teachers (any aj.:e) are
styled "old maids?"
Why some jriils prefer to turn pur
ple rather than wear underclothing?
Why Cod created Pox-Elder bujrs?
Why Edison couldn't prow youns

The time of the district court this
mo nil; r was taken up with the head
ing of the case of Grace L. Phoden vs.
(J:.llen II. Rl-.o!en, ar.d the couit room
was filled by a large crowd anxious to
hear any of the testimony, and in an
ticipation of some racy morsel to dis
cuss among themselves, and they were
i.ot in the Uast disappointed.
The morning session was taken up
with th direct testimony of the plain
tiff, and it was most sensational and
e.t times the witness was overcome
with emotion r.nd wept profusely, and
it was necessary to take a hort re
cess to allow her to compose herself
when reciting her side of the ililTer
ti.ces that has made their matrimonial
life a wreck. The direct examination
of Mrs. Rhoden was finished at noon,
and this afternoon ihe cross-examination
was commenced by the attorney
for the defense and took up a greater
part of the afternoon session.
Tl'.e two little children of the couple
weie present in the court room, and
the story of their parents' disagree
ment and charges and counter charges
were recitated before them. Such
cases are most unfortunate and brings
a great deal of grief and woe to the
parents and relatives of the "parties
who are numbered among the finest
families of the county.
The case brought in a great many
from the country in the vicinity of
where both parties have spent their
life-time, and as is usual in such cases,
a great deal of feeling has been arous
ed among the friends of both parties.
