THE BAND CONCERT.
Those who failed 10 attend the
concert on Saturday ovening,jiv
cn by the Eagle Valley Cornet
ftand missed the treat of the sea
son. The boys wereJI at their
l)pst and every number was
greeted with applause.
The band opened the. entertain
ment by playing a cake walk.
Ihon gave a march and two Blep.
Miss Either Saunders and C. J.
Tubbs wero next on the program
with a violin and piano duot,
which waa rendered with great
delight lo nil tl)o audience.
A skotch entitled "Dent's!
OIHcc Boy" was then put on by
A!, en Wright, Chas. barber and
plarence Haley. Each of the
boys did oxceedimrly well and !
we are sure that their efforts
were appreciated by all.
After a quickstep by the bano

Tlrs was followed by a mono
logue by Henry Cooper, that sure
was a cracker-jack. Then a
sketch entitled "Mickey Free"
was uiven by Messrs. Walter
and Will Saunders and Francis
llerr. This was comical in ihe
extreme and was acted with a
vim that brought out the comedy
to the best advantage.
A waltz and two step by the
band completed the program.
The floor was then cleared and a
dance announced,, at which a
number of couples enjoyed them
selves until midnight.
Considering the fact that the
boys have had but little time to
practice since announcing the en
tertainment, the program was
exceedingly good, and we are
sure that if they give another in
the near future the people will
greet them with a larger audi
ence. A neat sum was realized,
but not enough to free them
from debt entirely.

Lewis Jphnson, principal of the
Eagle Valley High School, the
board have authorized the pur
chase of about $175 worth of ap
paratus for "conducting experi

right place, and although he has
only-been here a short time, has
done a great dea) to advance the
school work, and Eagle Valley is
