Considerable comment was heard about the park in regard to their playing and a very noticable diffence in the way they handled their music under their new director, Mr. Kirk. After several well rendered selections in the park the band retired to the base ball diamond where they furnished a few lively selections for the benefit of the large crowd on the grounds, which the people through the Record wish to ex tend their many thanks.

Mr. Dutton in turn took over the hotel business of the Maddox Brothers at Limon, and on Sunday morning was in his new town dishing out the breakfast to his new trade. The Maddox boys have been conduc ting the Royal Cafe here for some time and are not new to us, they are good restaurant people and we wish them success in their new undertaking, Mr. Dutton has been a resident of Cheyenne Wells for a number of years and his many friends here were in deed sorry to hear of Ms move.
