Baxter Lyceum Course;
Meeting the request of some of
the citizens of the town and filling
a want, which was expressed to
some connected with the school
during the last year, we will this
year have a Lyceum Course of
four numbers. This talent is
being furnished by the famous
Redpath-Central Lyceum Bureau,
of Kansas City, Mo. Some of the
local people, with the aid of the
field agent, picked the talent,
who will give us the four numbers
of our course. The numbers as
chosn will give us a series of
programs of variety and will be
highly entertaining as well as
cultural. In the four numbers
there will be two musicals, one
program of music and reading
combined, one lecture and this is"
to be entertaining as well as in
structive. We appreciate the hearty co
operation of (he school patrons in
helping lis make the last school
year so successful, and feel that
every citizen wants this year the
best in the school's history. We
are depending ' on your help in
making this course a success and
if all work for the interest of
higher education ' and better
school privileges, there is no rea
son why Baxter should not have
a school system whose work will
rank with the best in the state.
Are you going to do your part?
In a few days someone will ask
you to buy a season ticket for
this series, and remember that
your aid is needed in this work.
The price for all four numbers is
only $1.00. Single admission to
ach number will be 50c You
can not afford to miss this series;
be sure to buy a ticket and at
tend each number. ONLY $1.00
for all four numbers.
