charge of theft, was examined in

committed to jail, in default of $250

all colored, were examined, and it
was pretty clearly demonstrated that
nobody but Ike robbed Ruth Small-
wood, also colored, of her hard-
earned money—$227—with which
Ruth irttended to return to St. Louis.

We learn from the sexton that in

totalof only twenty persons,who have
died in this city during the lust two

The members of the club, as well

of course, was done. It was not

that Mr Dunn made his peremptory

Brilliant Success of the Sherman
It was our good fortune to be
present at the first public rendition
of this popular opera given by tlie
Sherman amateur club, at the opera
house in Sherman Monday night.
We knew that Sherman possessed
fair musical and theatrical talent,
and therefore expected to be well
entertained, but had 110 idea that it
was possible to make up a club ol
amateurs in our neighboring city
who could do so well in this difficult
piece. The result was certainly
highly flattering to those who took
part, and their friends. The singing
was pronounced by musical critics
as charming, and we certainly have
no hesitancy in speaking of the act-
ing as worthy of experienced per-
The result must have proved
highly satisfactory to Mr. Stanley,
of St. Louis, the manager, under
whose instructions the club prepared
themselves for this great event of the
season. The opera house was crow-
ded by the elite of the city,' and, so
far as we could learn,' it wars the
unanimous opinion that it was1 the
best entertainment that had beeh! on
the boards in Sherman this year.'
The enthusiasm of the spectators
frequently found expressions in'
rounds of applause.
It is not necessary for us to
make particular mention of each
lady and gentleman who took
part in the entertainment. It is
enough when we say that in ' our
opinion all acted their parts most ad-
mirably, and showed careful train-
ing and ('illigent study. We cannot
refrain, however, from saying a few
words for Miss Dixie Crooks, and it
is appropriate we should. We feel
that in a certain sense she belongs to
the newspaper fraternity and for that
reason it is but natural that we
should take a lively interest in her
success. Miss Dixie represented
what, in our opinion is the most dif-
ficult character in the pieces Jose-
phine, the Captain's daughter.
Miss Dixie is only in her seven-
teenth year. She developed a taste
for music at an early age, and has
had careful musical training. Her
voice, while it lacks a little in vol-
ume, is peculiarly sweet, and her
enunciation very distinct. Owing to
this latter peculiarity she was easily
understood at the remotest part of
the hall, as we heard several- remark
Her singing was pronounced fault
less by several good judges of music

were the most pleased, however,

and W. C. Tones, brothers in-law, in
which the latter was seriously cut in

As is well known there has been a
feud of long standing between the
parties. It appears that Wainwright
went to Jones' to get his little boy,
and meeting Jones, the latter or-
dered him away, when hard-words
were spoken. Jones then threw
stone and 6truck Wainwright, who,
regaining his feet, made for him,
and cut him. Dr. Wilson who is
attending Jones, says the cut is very
serious, but at present cannot tell
liovv deep it is. The parties live in
