have a better time. The seats had

A meeting of the Highland County
Democratic Executive Committee was
held Tuesday afternoon and an at

delicious plums, Including all of the
postollices of any size In the county.
Joseph Miller secured the endorse

Reuben Grandle, for Leesburg; W. A.
Rhodes, for Sinking Sprlntr : J. B. Udd.
for Ralnsboro. Other Democrats who
asked for the endorsement of the
committee for the postotllce in these

To an unbiased observor and disin

cation of a combination between the
men who wero successful In receiving
tire endorsements for the respective

unwarranted In saying that the fine
Italian hand of one Joseph Miller can
be plainly teen in the work. Mr. Mil

I Boys Win, Girls Lose.
I In the double header basket ball
game between the girl anl boy teams
of the Hillsboro High School and Mil.
ford High School the Mllford girls won
by the score of 10 to 0 and Hillsboro
boys by 48 to 25.
This was the first game the Hills
boro girls had played and they made a
very good showing. The first half was
played under boys rules. The locals
had never played this style of game
while the visitors had been practicing
under those rules entirely. This gave
them a great advantage. The second
half was played under girl's rules.
Miss Grace Whlsler was the star of
the local team and Mllford's center
was their star
The first half between the boys was
very close Hillsboro leading at the close
by 20 to 17. In the second halt the
locals braced and played faster and
cleaner ball, carrying their opponents
oil their feet. Emery and Rogers, as
always, played star games for Hills-'
boro, their throwing of goal In the
second half being very accurate.

opening in New York at the Herald '

months at the Whitney Opera House ,
in Chicago It is the most elaborate
staged production In America and is
said to contain more novel features
than all the other musical comedies
combined. No expense has bee n
spared In staging the attract on and
