Much sympathy is extended the afflicted in their dual bereavement. The following from the St. Louis Times will be of local interest: "Charming in its joyous interpreta tion of good music in terms of rhythm and dance was the recital given at the Pershing Theater Saturday evening by Miss Irma Summa and her pupils. To the pleasure of the excellent in terpretative dancing was added a beauty of costumes as designed for the occasion by Miss Margaret Breen. All too faBt passed the evening's en tertainment, which opened with "Hariequin's Ball," to Robert Schu mann's music, passed on into an Oriental dance group of fascinating interest and concluded in a third part of divertisements by Miss Summa and her young pupils. Miss Summa was Harieqnln, graceful and finished danc er, and the embodiment of that humor ous sad figure of the old Italian frt. Attalia Davis was Pierrot, also a pleas ing dancer, and Kathleen Wheeler, the dainty and fascinating Columbine. These traditional figures told the storv of their loves and flirtations in the quaint company of little early Vic torian figures of the dance imper sonated by others of the pupils, and a picture of great charm resulted. Solo dances were introduced by the, more advanced pupils in that first part, and in the Orientals a temple dance by, Attalia Davis and Mildred Williams, an Arabian fancy by a group of younger danoers and with Marjorle Amnion as soloist, and Miss Summa's Oriental solo, were delightful. Less successful because.less rhythmic and less in unison was the. Egyptian dance." A book on rectal diseases will be sent free for the asking if yon men tion this paper. ' Ask for it. Address Dr. D. H. Bell, 1128 Central National Bank Building, 7th and Olive streets, St. Louis, Mo. The people of the Valley were greatly shocked Monday evening by the announcement that Wm. G. Whitworth had committed suicide by shooting himself at his home in Ar cadia. Mr. Whitworth lived alone and shortly after five o'clock that afternoon stated to a man who had been cutting the grass in the yard that his heart was acting qneerly, that he did not feel well and would go to the house, adding that if he did not return in a short time to get two or three other men and come into the house and look for him. It was only a few minutes nntil the report of a gun was heard and three or four of the neighbors rushed into the house. Mr. Whitworth was found lying on the floor dead, with a quilt nnder Li m and a gaping wound in his left side. He had taken a shot can. plac ed the muzzle against bis side, and with a window Btick pushed the trig ger. The charge went through his body and death was instantaneous. Coroner Farrar held an inquest and the finding was in accordance with facts as here stated. The deceased was a bachelor, a son of the late John W. Whitworth, forty-seven jyears of age; was born and spent practical ly all the days of his life in the valley. He possessed many admirable traits and wilf be sincerely mourned by many; he had been in poor health for some time and to this may be attri buted his fragio end. The only sur viving members of the immediate family are Miss Annie Whitworth and Mrs. Isabella Campbell, who are mak ing their home in Los Angeles, Cali fornia. The funeral occurs Wednes day afternoon and interment will be made in the Masonic cemetery. Peaceful rest to him. PLANTS FOR SALE. Sweet Potato, at 25c per 100, or 2 per thousand.
