H. D. Brewer,

member of the faculty of the
State University, under the
auspices of the Mistletoe Read-
ing Club of Hennessey was the
best of its class yet offered a
Hennessey audience. Miss
Smith, as a reader and reciter,
is as much beyond the average
elocutionist, as the latter is
above the crude efforts of a
school boy or school girl, in then-
earliest ambitions. It is to be
regretted that so few availed
themselves of the opportunity
to hear Miss Smith. The object
of the Club in introducing this,
the first of a series of entertain-
ments, was not understood by
the public; and the time was not
auspicious—being too near the
holidays these reasons may ac-
count in some measure for a
light attendance. The intention
of the club was to make use of
the net proceeds for some kind
of a public benefit—and there
was absolutely no intention to
use the money for anything con
nected with the club. The first
experiment has proven unprotit
able, but we hope if they coa
tinue their plans that a generous
public will give them the on
courageiuent usually accorded a
worthy cause in this community.
One of the Season's Best.
There are heroes and heroes
on the stage, but the prince of
them all is "Monte Cristo." He
is at once the exemplar and the
despair of the lesser dramatists
and he makes the swashbucklers
of cheap melodramas look like
farce comedy characters. The
secret of the preeminence of
Edmond Dantes can easily be
discovered by watching the play
as it will be presented by Fred
G. Conrad's Company at Bind
ings Opera House, January 6,
1909. Eugene Moore the noted
actor, who has played the star
part in' Monte Crists," innum
erable times, furnished the play
which Mr. Conrad uses and with
this version go the traditions of
the part as Mr. Moore always
played it. This actor has a clear
vision of what makes a real hero,
and he has endowed his Count of
Monte Cristo accordingly. Mr.
Conrad apparently has gather-
ed an exceptional company. He
will use the necessary quantity
of special scenery.
Under Sheriff Hawkins Marries.
On Sunday, Dec. 20. li)08,
Deputy Sheriff Ike Hawkins, of
this county, was united in mar-
riage to Miss Dora Green, at the
home of the bride's parents,
near Geary, Okla. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. R. S.
Smidley, of Blaine County, in the
presence of a few friends and
relatives of the Gride. The bride
is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Green, former residents
of Hennessey. The bridal
couple visited the groom's sister
noar Lawton, Monday, and his
parents here on Tuesday and ac
companied the bride's uncle and
aunt Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Wilson
to their home in Washington
county, Kansas, where they will
spend Christ in as among relatives
of the bride. They will make
their home in Kiugtisher, where
Mr. Hawkins holds the position
of deputy sheriff. They are re-
ceiving many congratulations
from their friends.
