One of the very pleasant events of
last week was the recital given by Miss
Sara A. Spencer of the department of
elocution at her studio In the Normal
building Saturday evening, In the pres-
ence of the students of her department
and a few invited friends, and the only
regret of those wtio were so fortunate
as to be present was that all of Ed-
mond could not have been present to
listen to Miss Spencer's recital. The
piece selected by Miss Spencer for
interpretation was Miss Frances Hodg-
son Burnett's four act comedy called
"Esmeralda," and for an hour and a
half Miss Spencer carried her audience
with her as she impersoneted the vari-
ous characters in the play and unfolded
the love story of Esmeralda and Dave
together with the complications that
went with it. Miss Spencer put her
whole soul into her interpretation and
impersonation of character with the
result that those intensely human

characters of the play lived and moved
and laughed and wept with all the real-
Ism of life During the Intermission
betwean the acts F rof. Isaacs sang
and Miss Mattie White played a num-
ber of selections, which were much
enjoyed. At the close of the recital
there was an informal social hour,
during which Miss Spencor gave by
request "The Ship of Love'' by Ella
Wheeler Wilcox, "A Boy's Bear Sto-
ry" by James Whitcomb Riley, and
Eugene Field's "Little Boy Blue",
delighting her hearers as much by
these interpretations of sentiment as
she had delighted them by her inter-
terpretation of character. During the
social hour following the recital fruit
punch and wafers were served and when
Miss Spencer's guests departed they
departed thanking Miss Spencer for a
most delightful evening and congratu-
lating Edmond and the students of the
Normal on having such an artist to
edify and instruct them.
Cotton seems to be dropping out of
sight. The ginners who paid good
prices for what they have bought, and
the farmers who held for higher prices
all have lost money if they sell at pres-
ent prices. Those who can hold should
conttnue holding. Throwing cotton or
any other product on a falling market
mereiy helps depress the price. The
unusually bright weather during Octo-
ber and November all over the cotton
belt knocked out all crop estimates on
which prices are based. Fully nine-
tenth of the cotton that is usually dam-
aged by weather was saved without a
drop of rain on it. The Journal doesn't
profess to be able to foretell what the
future course of the market will be.
It's only advice to the producer who
has not already sold is to hold what he
can while the price is so low.—Okla-
homa Farm Journal.
