a home talent show in this city in a
long time that has given such uni
versal satisfaction as the one put on
this week. While the cast was quite
large, and it would be difficult to
mention each individual taking part,
all showed careful training and exe
cuted their parts admirably. Harry
Ennis under whoes direction and
training the minstrel was put on, is
certainly on to his job and as com
edian he is an expert and keeps the
audience in a constant uproar from
start to finish. It was really a nignt
of laughs and the niggers reminded
one of the old times away down in
Tennessee. The singing by the young
ladies was good. Altogether it is one
of the best shows our people have
had the pleasure of seeing in many a
day.— Independence Enterprise.
This show, “ A Night o f Laughs,”
is now being rehearsed nightly in

Candidates for Governor are be
coming very numerous. Some are
good, some are fair and one is dan
gerous. The belief is now, among
the knowing ones, that if Smith is
not nominated by the Democrats,
and if Bennett should be nominated
by the Republicans, there will be a
loud call for the present governor to
to become a candidate.
