Home Minstrels
The entertainment given at the opera
douse last Friday evening was excellent
when it is taken into consideration how
little time was given to rehearsals since
the affair was so very hastily gotten up
There would undoubtedly have been a
larger attendance had not the show been
hilled for the following day and prob
ably many who had made up their minds
fully to take in the circus felt that they
could hardly afford both but the attend
ance neverthjess was fair While the
boys did not make anything above ac
tual expenses it leaves them with ma
terial for another entertainment in the
near future The following took active
part on the boards Arthur Brown gen

Knox and Bert Ives officiated as Bones

Found In Want
We do not suspect that anyone in our
town was aware that there has been a
family in want of the necessities of life
but such has been the case and it was
brought out in an indirect way Sunday
before Cooper Cos circus left town
One of the ladies of this show happened
to call at the house where the Brooks
family reside the husbind and father
only died a few weeks ago and on en
tering found the destitute condition that
the folks were in Circus people have
heartP and are the most liberal people in
the world She heard the story of the
poor woman and immediately went out
among the show men and those who hap
pened to be about looking on and took
up a collection ainountinu to over eight
dollars and gave it to the poor widow In
our paper of Jan 26th wherein was men
tioned the death of Mr Brooks was
stated the family were in destitute
circumstances and it was supposed that
the widow received her monthly stipend I
of x 10 from the county but we are in
formed that as she only asked for the
allowance while her husband was ill at
the February meeting her allowance was
cut off Since the above facts developed
a petition to have her reinstated on the
Hat of county poor has been circulated
and presented to the board of county
commissioners in sea ion this week with
the result that she is now allowed 10
per month It seems the poor woman
does not want to be dependent upon till
county but owing to the sickness of her
little boy who partially supports her
she has been unable to look after her
family of four children
