however, in the effort to get the

known to Sheriff Marvin a man ap
peared at the station claiming that
he held an order from the county
prisoner, which order was signed
in the presence of the sheriff.
Agent Butner, however, refused to
permit the "booze'' to leave the sta

MATTER BROUGHT UP BEFORE
THE ENTERPRISE COMMER
One of the matters considered by
he local Commercial club, at its
ast meeting, was that of taking up
".he opera house problem in Enter
prise, with a view to making It pay
expenses by furnishing the show
?oars with good home talent and
?ood outside entertainments. While
lo'.hing definite has been determin
ed upon thus far, the matter has cre
ated considerable patriotic discus
sion, aid varying suggestions have
As a rule opera houses are ex
)easive things, but they can, again
i-. a rule, be made to pay expenses
vhen everybody works to that
aad. The suggestion that home tal
ta entertainments be given and
tat outside or professional enter
ainmeats be given in tddltion. seems
o solve the problem. Enterprise
las the talent in both music and
Ircmatic phases, and home entertain- i
neuts if rehearsed well and if made
o move with the proper "go" and '
pirit, are always attractive and well 1
eceived everywhere. The home
oard could put on operas, dramas, ;
!d-time minstrel shows, and these
A'ith outside professional entertain
nents could be made to keep the
ipera house running and at ioast
ay the running expense!.
What the commercial club will do,
ir what it will not do, is not known i
U this time. It is safe to venture,
however, that if the members see I
he club's way clear to take hold of j
he opera house, and pay nothing :
ibove the expense- of it, they will J
probably do so. ;
