A Strong Company.
The Morey Stock Company's
production of "A Neglected
"Wife" is a strong bill.
It was a play that called for
the united strength of the Com-
pany to bring out the good ef-
fects, and are glad to note that
they were equal to the occasion
as the play was handled in a
most charming manner without
one weak point.
The Company is stronger than
ever before and last night's play
was equal to some of the very
best one night's attractions.
The specialties were indeed
fine and of that bright and spicy
nature that makes you want to
say something nice of the per-
We can safely say to the peo-
ple that this Company is worthy
and deserving of your patronage.
A continual round of entertain-
ment from the time the curtains
go up on the first act.
If you attend the play expect-
ing to see a weak production you
will be delightedly surprised as
they are appearing in the strong-
est number staged and take their
parts like the professionals they
are. Don't miss it.—Blackwell

money on her clothes. She wouldn't
guess at it eitherShe would shop
around and know whether claims
are true or just talk.
Come in and look over
our unusually fine assort-
ment for spring. Bring
your wife or your mother with

judge of qloth than a man.

"The same price the world over"
They are wonderful values for the
money. You can't match them anywhere
in town even at a price several dollars
The fabrics are all-wool. The tailor-
ing has the fine finish that only expert
workmanship can give.
There are values hidden inside that you
cannot see—high-grade canvas and lin-
ings that you find in high-priced clothes.
We will leave it to your wife and our
mirror. Here is an opportunity to save
a few dollars without sacrificing some-
thing. We guarantee satisfactory service
or a new suit. Why not come tb-day or

Look to Your Plumbing.
You know what happens in a
house in which the plumbing is
in poor condition—everybody in
the house is liable to contract
typhoid or some other fever. The
digestive organs perform the
same functions in the human
body as the plumbing does for
the house, and they should be
kept in first class condition all
the time. If you have any trou-
ble with your digestion take
Chamberlain's Tablets and you
are certain to get quick relief.

RECITAL A SUCCESS
Mrs. Hardy's Pupils Gave Ex-
A good enthusiastic audience
greeted the pupils of Ida Da
Foe Hardy at her eighteenth re-
cital, at Palmer opera house Fri-
The soloist for the evening,
was Mrs. Inez Dodds-Barbour, a
Dramatic Soprano, of rare ability.
She has a glorious voice and be-
yond the fact of her exceptional-
ly fine technic, her singing por-
trays the love of an artist,
The first number Was a duet
by Fannie Lively and Fay Webb
of Wakita, which was brilliant-
ly executed and displayed good
Georgia McKelvy played Merk-
els Butterfly in a graceful man-
The Nocturne played by Pauline
Ridings showed careful work and
was given with good expression.
The next number was by J. A.

rythm, excellent pedal work and
sure touch proved Himself a na-
Miss Eva Glenn played Men-
delsshons Spring Song with grace
Probably the most artistic
number 011 the program was that
of Clara Garringer, who played
"Oh Thou Sublime Sweet Even-
ing Star." She showed in the
bringing out of her melody and
the singing quality of her tones,
that she had fine musical instinct.
La Papillon by Laval lee was
brilliantly played by Helen Bridge
man. Miss Helen is talented and
ambitious and has a bright fu-
ture in the musical world.
The difficult Sextette from
"Lucia" for left hand, was well
rendered and interpreted by
Madge Brown. Her depth of
liiK' and technic are unusually
good in one so young.
The last number, a duet
by Helen Bridgman and Gladys
Bryson, "the Gipsy Rondo" was
a breezy rollicking number and
pleased the audience.
The work of the pupils speaks
volumes for the training received
under Mrs. Ilardv's instructions.
Sunday morning is our Com-
munion service. Every member
of the church should make speci-
al effort to be there. The mes-

Ford Auto Enters Grant
County Court House!
Tuesday, April 1, (and this is no joke)
Col. T. M. Adams drove his Ford Roadster
up the steps and entered the Grant county
court house, turned in the vestibule and
descended the steps without accident.
This looks like an almost impossible
feat, but the Ford did it, as will be shown
by photos in this paper next week. And to
make the fact more notable, the driver was
a civil war veteran with one arm and has
passed his three score years and ten.
The Ford left-hand drive adds to the comfort and ease
of Ford operation. Many American manufacturers have
blindly followed European customs by placing the driving
wheel upon the right. In Europe, however, the rule oL' the
road is to turn to the left when approaching a vehicle. But
in America, where we keep to the right, there is a dis-
tinct advantage in a left-side drive. The driver may more
easily see the road ahead—and watch his clearance in pass-
ing other vehicles. Also he does not have to get out in the
dirt or mud when he properly stops the car at the curb.
