NEW COURT HOUSE
JOINED IN JULY
The Largest Crowd Yet Upon the
Streets Last Night That Has
Ever Greeted the Musicians.
It would seem that every one rall-
ied upon Rock Island avenue last
night to hear the hand concert and
the boys richly merited the great
audience because of their splendid
rendition of an excellent program,
and while every number merits highly
favorable comment, the most interest
ing and most thoroughly appreciated
number was an intermezzo by Vivian
Gray, who is non other ttian Miss
Mable McKlnley, favorite niece of
the late president, and now foremost
among America's female composers.
This delightful little composition
was presented to the El Reno band
by Leo Fiest a promtnent music deal-
er of New York and is being played
by all the high bands in the cities.

What Mr. Loudermilk did say in
substance was this: "TTie president
of this League and the committee
know that these prosecutions would
have been begun several days ago
had it not been for the absence of
Judge Phelps and as soon as he re
turns the business will begin."

Rain and Hail.
Reports from the country near Cal-
umet give an account of a splendid
rainfall of two inches yesterday and
that the storm was quite general and
consequently beneficial to a large
area of country. ,
Directly north of Calumet there was
a heavy hail storm which did some
damage, which consisted mainly in
breaking window glass. Some of the
hail-stones were very large, but the
storm lasted only a few minute< an'i
covered only a small area.
