MENT BY CIVIC LEAGUE
Given at the High School
One of the best entertainments
of the seasson was pulled off
Monday night at the High School
Auditorium by the Ladies of the
Civic League. This was certain-
ly a high class entertainment
and those who were not there
missed a treat indeed. The Star
act of the evening was "In Fairy
Land." Mrs. Whitaker played
the roll of the lost girl in Fairy
Land and she played to the de-
light of the entire audience.
Miss Hattie May Oldham acted
the Fairy Queen and Mr. Norris
Welch the Prince. Miss Hattie
May made a charming queen
and her part was splendidly ex-
ecuted to the delight of all. Mr.
Welch captured the audience
when he appeared on the scene
with his musical voice and
princely garb. The little fairies
in the act did their part real
well. The next thing on the
program was a reading by Miss
Vera Featherston, which was
highly appreciated by all. Miss
Veía is an artist in this line.
That solo rendered by Judge R.
M. Reed of El Paso took the
audience by stórm and thev just
wouldn't let him go, he had to
come back again. The see-saw
waltzes by the %ix little girls was
excellent and enjoyed by all.
The Huskin Bee by Reed, Bul-
loch and Welch was a side split-
ter and the audience went wild
—and they had to come back
The people of Aspermont are
indebted and a lasting debt too,
to the Civic League of Asper-
mont. This is one organization
that the people of Aspermont
owe an everlasting debt. God
bless them, if it were not for
them, we don't know what would
become of the civic pride of our
city. There was Mrs. D. M.
Oldham, Mrs. J. C. Link and
Mrs. Dr. Annis, and we guess
there were others, who worked
like slaves in getting up this
show, and yet there was barely a
hundred people out to see it,
when every dollar that was taken
in goes to the beautifying of our
city. Even if you did not want
to go out you ought to ha>e sent
in your money. We say
Shame on the people who
didn't go out and add their
might for the up-lift of our city.
Just let some little old dirty,
vulgar show come along and the
whole doggone town will turn out
and patronize it, and yet every
dollar of that money will leave
the town. The ladies took in
less than $35 when they ought to
have had a $100 house. Now the
next time the ladies igive an en-
tertainment, if you can't go send
in your money anyhow. Of
course we know that the people
of Aspermont who didn't go, did
it unthoughtedly, and we are
giving you this jacking up, so the
next time you will turn out and
help the Leaders of the Civic
League, and if you don't, we will
give you a sure enough jacking
up the next time.

BREAD TRAY IS WET
Copious Rains Throughout the
Shinery Belt. Brazos
On last Saturday and Sunday
the rain god visited parts of
Stonewall county and old mother
earth got a good soaking. Swen-
son, Shinerv Lake, Brazos Val-
ley, and some other spots in the
county got a good rain. E. T.
Daniels, the gin man at Brazos
Valley, says they got a splendid
rain. He says that the rain ex-
tended from Uncle John Ward's
out to Geo. 1$. Martin's ranch.
Mr. Daniels says that the rain in-
sures Brazos Valley worlds of
feed for home consumption. He
says that the prospects for a cot-
ton crop was never better at this
time of year. Says without an-
other drop of rain thev will
make from 1-4 to 1-2 bale to the
acre and if they can get another
rain by the first of August, they
will make a bale to the acre, un-
less worms or some other pests
bothers it. He says with a full
crop he will gin 2,000 or 2,500
bales of cotton. He figures
without another drop of rain that
he will gin 1200 bales of cotton.
The Shinery -belt and Brazos
Valley are Stonewall county's
bread tray, and with fine seasons
already in sight old Stonewall
connty is not going to be a
drouth sufferer this year.
There were showers all over the
county the past week. T. W.
K. Head's ranch got a good rain,
and a good rain fell at the Bald-
win ranch. The rain was spot-
ted in the Mattie country. Some
farms got a f^ir rain. Biit in the
south and southwest part of the
county no rain to speak of.
Brandenburg got a light shower.
We haven't heard from the New
Hope country and cannot say
whether they got any rain or
not. But the cloudy days and
cool weather has been a great re-
lief to the whole countv.

Rains Wednesday Night
The north part of the county
got another good rain Wednes-
day night. A slow, steady
rain and continued all night.
The rain at Aspermont was
light and no rain in the south
part of the county to speak of.
All the Mattie country got a
good rain. The Shinery belt
north of Aspermont is all wet
again. We are quite sure that
Brazos Valley got a good rain.
Toll Ginn says that it rained at
his place near Mattie all night.
It looks like the tight land dis-
tricts of Stonewall county can't
get any rain—But just be patient
it will rain.

As the moon with a benign
aspect peeped over, the horizon,
it seemed to smile as it beheld .a
number of attractive young
ladies and the Methodist Baracas
enjoying themselves on the lawn
at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.
N. G. Rollins.' The moment
soon came though when the
benign aspect of the moon
ahanged into a devouring look as
the ice cold water melons were
scattered among the guests as
refreshments. For a few mom-
ents all was quiet, each one
eating to their heart's content.
It was late in the night, the
moon still shining, the breeze
sighing, and every one smiling,
when all expressed themselves as
having spent an enjoyable time
and began to homeward plod
