The evening preformance was well attended and was well ap¬ preciated by the audience, but there [Was very iittle applause for the many eats of daring. We can nol see why Ithe people of Flora at any good show [io not give applause where It Is merited. The show was tirst class and lean In eviry respect and was above j |tlie average, but the audience scarcely tpplauded the actors ut any time, til our son we altended and had rand sland seals, and for fear some ne will shout aloud aboul unpaid Jills, etc., we will say through the indness of one who was In no way nnected with the show we entered in complimentary tickets, grand jitand tickets Included, for which we hank the donor. Mr. and Mrs, Ed Coll anddaughter. Virginia, returned Sunday mornlns from Pueblo, Colo,, where they had been visiting Mr, Coil's sister, Mrs. M. Chandler. Ed says he had to look twice to see the tops of some of the mountains. OAK GROVE We are still needing rain very badly on account ofwater for slock and for the benetit of pastures, but it would not help the corn very much. The Hughs tent meetings at Rlnard have closed. They had the church seats borrowed from the Oak Grove Church, it seems too bad that the people of this community don't use the seats and church for worship. Wm, Hunt has returned to his home In Itanvers, III. He sold his car to Jesse Blllington of near Rlnard. Bethlehem asks how far Mr, I'earce has to travel from his home to reach the Hord farm's' We are not prepared to give the exact distance, but we think It Is aboul 15 miles. . That Is to our mind making pretty good time, but we know by experience how anx¬ ious one gets making such trips, and like the man that was telling about the speed of his hound, "the faster he went the further he got." Well, we were all boys, once—those that were not girls. C. S. Marshall, wife and daughters, Lena and Alda. took dinner Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Homer Pettyjohn. Farmers Yeck and Puckett were In this vicinity receutly, harvesting their crop of spuds. From the way their jitney coughed on their return they must surely have had her full of tubers. We are In receipt of a letter of re¬ cent date from Leslie Marshall, who enlisted In the signal corps of the Navy department. ' He was tirst laken to Omaha, Neb,, then to Mare Island, Calf., and later to Minneap¬ olis, Minn. He has just been trans¬ ferred to Boston. Mass., where he will complete his radio course. He had ranked second In his examinations. Mrs, G. W. Marshall relurned toiler home in Beardstown Tuesday, after spending' a few days visiting Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Marshall and family. The Sparks' show was well atten¬ ded from this locality, lasl week. We can say we never attended a cleaner or better conducted show. Some of the feats were extremely good. Red Cross Work I'l.OKA.
