local talent will take part and the conductor,
the same as will put it on at

Skule Beginment." is brim full of fun
and contains lots of very pretty music,

town of Stugis ever had. Col. Chas.

noted old hostlery when it burned, but
the house was under a lease to A. L.
Grady, who, it is claimed, had twelve
thousand dollars on the furnishings
and fixtures, while Mrs. Skinner, only
had one thousand dollars on the house.
