Mrs. S. A.

Bailey's music pupils. The stage in the auditorium was tastefully decorated for the occasion with red and green crepe paper, potted plants and red roses. Mrs. P.ailey had a large music class ihu past year, and that her work was highly satis? factory and pleasing to the parents of her pupils was evi? denced by the largo number present on this occasion, as well as others interested in educa tion. In fact, the largest aiuli enca was present that lias as? sembled in tho Bchool audi? torium in a Ion? lime. The rapid progress of her pupils was eusily seen by the correct and eflicient way in which they rendered their various pieces. Mre. Bailey is a most excellent music teacher and enjoys u reputation of being very thorough in her work. THEATRICAL Ity BUI Mr. J, It. Taylor, manager of our local theatre, bus just re turned from a t rip to Cincinnati, where he has boon arranging for some stirring feature pic? tures to place before the public this summer. Mr. Taylor, by getting in personal touch with his Kx ohange, has been able to pick from the cream of the releases and-his patrons can be assured that they will receive a number of features which are making bits throughout the country. Especially was be after early bookings on "line Wonderful Night,'* with which all readers of The Ladies World are in touch. This picture has not yet been produced, but the pen pie of our town will be among the Urft to enjoy it. The regular program lias also been improved wonderfully, the management having arranged for at least one big laughable comedy each night beginning next Monday. On next Tuesday night, No. 6 of the Ad ventures of K?thlyn, "A Colonel in (.'bains." will be shown. The beauteous Kath lyn, incarcerated with her father, Col. Hare, sees little hope in prospect for escaping from the tightening coil of the snakelike, villnnous (Jmballah. who, smarting under the blood blows of the gallant American, has sworn vengence and ret reat? ed to rally Iiis minions for the public Hogging of the Colonel and the degradation of his daughter. Suddenly the talk of father and daughter is in? terrupted by a noise at the close barred window of their cell, and the friendly elephant thai aided her escape applies bis great strength to a chain, pulling away the bars ami part of the inusoury, allowing the heroine to escape This is one <>f tllii most thrilling of the Kathlyn series and should not bo mis? sed. Wife Sole Heir To Huge Kstate of John C. C. Mayo. Pulntsville, Kv., May 28.? The will of the l?te .lohn 0. C. Mayo has been opened ami will be Hied for probate on J line I. The document is one of the shortest ever filed in Johnson county. It is the shortest ever Hied in Kentucky disposing of an estate of the magnitude of Mr. Mayo's. It occupies the center of a sheet of paper of legal cap si/.e, ami contains less than 300 words. The document throws no light on the size of Mr. Mayo's estate, as he directs that no inventory of it be taken. It is estimated, however, that a figure between i-fl.i'OO.lMllt and ?^,000,000 will closely approxi? mate the value of the dead Capitalists holdings at present. With conservative management this value is expected to double in u few years, and there is no telling wiiat its size will be in fifteen or twenty years. Much of Mr. .Mayo's holdings have never been leased or operated, and are simply being held until a deal advantageous to the estute can be mado. It was stated that Mr. Mayo had in project this summer several transactions which would have doubled the value of his ostnte within a few months had he carried them out. What these plans are, only his and John E. Buckingham, business asso ciate, know, anil it has been left to them to execute these ideas. Full Confidence in Wife That Mr. Mayo had the fullest confidence in his wife's business ability is denoted by the fact that he left everything he possessed to her and made her executrix without bond. Mrs. Muyo was Miss Gertrude Meoks, daughter of hotel keeper in Paintsville, who married Mr. Mayo when he was struggling to get a footing in the financial world. She aided him in all his projects, kept in intimate toucii with hia business and knew better than anyone else the general scheme her husband had for tho development of Kastern Kentucky. This sym? pathetic co-operation during her husband's lifetime has been rewarded by a display of Im? plicit trust in her ability after his death. In order that Mrs Mayo may keep in closest touch with the details of the estate it is the understanding that she will be elected to th?- directorates of all the companies in which vacan? cies occurred by reason of the death of her husband. She will then be probably the only woman in Kentucky who, as a director, is actively engaged in handling millions and will be one of the few women financiers in the country. Buckingham Counselor Mrs. Mayo may mnke any disposition of any part of the estate she pleases, but if she asks advice, there has been a restriction made by the will. She may ask counsel only of .lohn K. Buckingham, Mr. Mayo'S closest friend, and this is taken as a mark of the esteem in which Mr. Mayo held his former pupil. The will was written in March, 1013, during the spring previous to the summer in which Mr, Mayo took his trip to Europe. He was in good health at the time, but probably made his will then to provide tigninst any contin? gencies which might have oc? curred on this trip. Tho wit? nesses to it are Mr. Buckingham and George K. t'opeland, who was Mr. Mayo's private secre? tary.
