A at 12 of clock the band headed by the a a stars marched up from their private car to the tent and rendered some excellent selections. This band is one of the Best that Ever struck the Panhandle and its of Hereford deaf Smith county Texas May 17, 1901 $1.50 per year stringfellow Hume hardware co.

In the afternoon a High wind came up followed by a heavy rain which lasted until late in the evening thus causing the manager or. Wilber to abandon the idea of giving a show. This was a keen disappointment to our townspeople As loud praises of the company a performance had proceeded them from Amarillo and Canyon and the town boys immediately begun to negotiate with the county officials and the show management to have a performance room packed by an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. As soon As was possible the company opened up with some exceedingly Good singing which was followed by a farce comedy interspersed with singing witty jokes musical and acrobatic specialities and last but not least with some of the Best Buck and Wing dancing that it has been the writers Fortune to witness. Altogether considering the expediency Lack of room and other difficulties they had to contend with a very creditable performance was Given and had the inclement weather not interfered the company would have played to a profitable House and added one More to its Long list of successful engagements and we wish to congratulate the management for its efforts to please our people and for the gentlemanly and Ladylike conduct of its personnel Jack Harwell proprietor of t he4 Hereford a Saloon specialities. Fine wines whiskers and cigars Nave t left in a hurry after receiving a Little free advertising in the reporter. Last Friday morning Randel and Brown a Eye specialists a arrived in town and established an a a office at the Humphrey. Their first act was to Send a boy around with some hand Bills announcing in the stereotyped style that they would remain in town a for three Days Only during which time they would be pleased to remove All diseases of the Eye and incidentally that most dreaded disease that of having too much Money. Their next move was to Rig up a a a Nigger doll with prisms glasses and other ornamentation to attract attention and set it on a chair on the hotel veranda and Plant themselves in another and wait for these would doubtless come had it not been that one their Bills unfortunately for them found its Way into the reporter office through the medium of the said boy. The Type for that Issue of the reporter was set and made up ready to g to press but the editor not caring to see our townspeople hum bugged took the extra time and by a a killing some locals and a a pulling some leads managed to print an eighteen line article warning our constituents against travelling fairs whose aim was to get their Money by imposing upon the ills of their fellow Man. We stated that while legitimate in Tern is and business men were Welcome and would receive unbounded support in the Pap a we did not propose to further a mount Bank a business by advocating it it i even remaining Neutral. The result of the said 18-line article was that one of the a a specialists came into this office to give us a a a cussing but got badly a a cussed before his oily Tongue had got into working order and left Oon to Hunt up a drayman to carry Bim and his a a Nigger doll to the Stock Yards where a train was soon to leave for the North.
