Tucumcari Abstract (o.
JAS. J. HALL & COMPANY
The linn of James J. Hall & Com
pany, abstracters, has lately been in
corporated under the name of The Tu
cumcari Abstract Company. They
will do a general abstract business. !
They have opened a branch olllce nnd
at present located in tho ofllces with
the Hamil'.on Insurance Company on
Main Street. The main olllce will
be managed by W. R. Coplen, And
will remain in the olllce building on
South Second Street, formerly occu
pied by James J. Hall & company.
Tho Khoral Klub, a new musical
organization in Tucumcari, which is
composed of most of the best vocal
and instrumental performers here, will
make its debut Sunday evening at th
Methodist church in n cantata entitled
"The Everlnsting Light." The club1
is under the dnectiou of Prof. Lown,
of the High School, and from reports
the public may expect one or tiie best,
musical events ever produced in Tu I
cumcari. It has not been learned as j
to what the program will consist but 1
further announcements will be made !
through circulars later.
The basket ball game last Friday
night between the town boys and the
High School boys was won by the High
School 117 to 24. This was another ev
idence of what practice does in the
athletic field. The high school boys
are small but have been practicing,
while the town boys were among the
best athletes turned out of the High
School. They know the game and
should have won easily but they have
no place to practice and could not play
the game expected of them. A move
ment is on foot to establish a gym
down town where the boys who work
may go for recreation and muscular
development. The High School has a
good team and when they meet again
the game will be worth going to see.
