rain and mud and none went away dis
appointed a whit In total it was one
of the most agreeable and enjoyable pro
grams given in McCook in many moons

tion of about thirty voices from among
McCooks best vocal talent directed by
Miss Budlong were well rounded and
the volume was full and harmonious

and a treat not often enjoyed in this

struments were welcomed by many evi
dences of appreciation It seemed like
old times to hoar the boys
The vocal solos were given by such old
favorites as Mrs C W Britt Mrs A P
Bonnot Miss Elsie Campbell and Mr
C W Britt Their voices always have
attentive ears and appreciative hearts
among McCook audiences
The piano numbers were by such tal
ent as Miss Edna Barr Mrs W B Mills
and Mrs W L Thayer and were up to
the high standard usually maintained by
those performers
The trio and quartette work were
among the most pleasing features of a
program without weakness
F A Pennclls euphonium solo was a
favorite as usual tiis occasional ap
pearances are ever welcome
Mr Roswell Cutler gave evidence of a
promising performer on the violin in his
Perhaps no number of the evening re
ceived more genuine marks of approval
than did the instrumental trio by Mes
srs Gaarde Sutton and Miss Barr
And finally the two readings by Miss
Abbott and Miss Storer were notably
well received Miss Abbott gave an un
expectedly enjoyable symposium of
contrasts and Miss Storer gave a gener
ous dose of James Lane Allens charm
ing love story Kentucky Cardinal
in a delightful manner
The May Festival was given under the
auspices of the McCook chapter X P E
O The ladies tire to be congratulated
unon the financial achievement and the
members on the program upon the ar
tistic success attained And we are not
sure but that the people of McCook are
to be felicitated more than either upon

among its own people an entertainment
