Good Music
The Cheney Concert Company, here
last Thursday night at Reynolds Opera
House, appeared to very small audi
ence but never to a more delighted one.
The ladies and the male section of the
orchestra were all seasoned and capable
musicians. They were all soloists as
well as ensemble players, and they were
exceptionally good, too. It was a mis
fortune that more musicians and music
lovers were not present. The concert
included some popular music as well as
some of the standard selections, and the
audience was enraptured to the end of
Athletic Cuff Liuks at Dietzel's.

Death of MraThompson..
Mrs. Laura Gray Thompson, wife of
Mr. Allen Thompson, died last Sunday
morning, May 10, 1914, at 6:30 o'clock.
Mrs. Thompson had been an invalid
from cancer for over two years, death
coming in the form of relief.
Mrs. Thompson's age was 50 years,
7 months and 28 days. She was mar
ried twenty-eight years ago in Hickman
County, and from there she and Mr.
Thompson came to Union City about
ten years ago. She was the daughter
of Jas. Briggs and a sister of W. J. and
A. H. Briggs, this city, and leaves a
sister at Hohetiwald, Tenn., Mrs. David
Warren, also a brother, Jas. T., in Texas.
She leaves also a daughter, Miss Eliza
beth, aged 12, berefof a mother's ten
der care and affection.
Mrs. Thompson was a member of the
Methodist Church, the qualities of mind
and heart converging into the highest
elements of character. She wa3 very
kindly attached to her friends and ten
derly devoted to her loved ones at home
consecrated to her church, and esteemed
in the greatest measure by those who
knew her.
Death leaves an aching void, the home
is bereft, but memory lingers sweetly
in its sacred precincts.
A tribute of service was conducted at
the residence Monday morning by Rev.
W. C. Waters, and the remains were
interred at. East View. ... ' !
Class Recital.
The Commercial maJe several very
serious mistakes last week, and one of
these was overlooking a notice of Miss
Beulah Allen's class recital on Friday
night. A notice of this recital appeared
the previous wetk.buj was unintention
ally omitted last week.
The recital, however, was the best, it
is said, of Miss Allen's entire experience
as teacher of music in Union City. She
has a large class and everyone appeared
at the piano without music and without
a prompter, displaying not only the
evidences of excellent training in execu
tion but in memory practice. Miss
Allen is not merely a musician. She is
performer of more than ordinary ability,
and in the realm of teacher she has ac
quired the cult which only renowned
teachers attain' of imparting to- their
pupils the secret of real music the in
terpretation and expression, of the com
posers. From the beginner to the oldest
pupil everyone acquitted themselves to
the pleasure and delight of the audience.
The class is as follows: Flavella
Woosley, Lydia B. Roberts, Edna and
Louise Wilbanks, Pauline Mount, Zeltna
Bell, Kathryn Bryan, Emily Woosley,
James Massey, Mary Butler, Mabel
Luten, Brownie Massey, Juna Reynolds,
Kathleen Arnold, Chas. Reynolds, R.
C. Reynolds, Jr., Louise Harris, Cantie
May Luten, Louise Luten, Carrie Beck
ham, Vivian Woodrow, Mildred Waters,
Margaret Porter, Jeanie Garth.
