Some of the boys and girls of the

Tuesday night at the K. P. hall for the

evening netted some $4.9 for the Red

As an amateur entertainment this one
was among the most creditable ever put
on in Shoshone. The parts were well
taken and well executed. It was well
worth the price of admission and all
who took part in it are entitled to spe

and skill and taient. Their show left a
good taste in the mouth of every one
and everyone present hope the children
will not let this be their last one.
