Messrs. Herring. Anderson and M iss (irace
Anderson put the entire audience in a good
The Vocal Solo, "A Whispered Vov,"
by Mrs. O. A. Mason, certainly wasa treat
for she has a remarkebly sweet and a high
ly cultivated voice, and sang well. T h e
recitation, "Thora," by Miss Lizzie Troup
was well rendered and she showed m u c h
talent in the rendition of that dilHcidt piece.
The Quartette, "Nearer My Clod To
Thee," by Dr. Coulter, McCargar, Mrs.
McCargar and Miss Anderson, truly was a
grand musical recitation, and so thorough
ly rende red that the audience was almost

McCourt, of HI Paso, was A No. 1 and
everybody enjoyed it immensely J o h n

musical talent. A Vocal Solo, "May
Morning," a difficult piece, was well ren
dered by Mrs. Jarrell.
The recitation akie and Old Jacob, by
Miss Ruth A her, kept the audience in a
roar of laughter, and the rendition co u 1 d
not be improved upon, was an excellent
piece of acting. Mandolin and guitar, by
Anderson, Herring and Miss Anderson, of
course was good, and the audience regret
ted there was not More of it.
"()!' Picket's Nell," by Miss Anderson,
to say good, would be putting it mildly
yes, it was better than that. It was as
natural as nature. "Over The Ocean
Mine," by Jerome McCourt, like his p r e -vious
song, was good, very good. Every
body declared the entire performance the
best ever given in Tucumcari. We are
very proud of our local talent .
