County Court Proceedings.
The case of J. M. ANDREWS vs. J. W. MORRIS, suit on an account was up before Judge FAULKNER’s court yesterday.
A new trial was asked for and argued in the case of T. S. WOODS vs., the G. C. & S. F. Ry. Co., but was overruled by the court. The defendant gave notice of appeal.
Pleasing Entertainment. The Little Children were Passing Good. Each One Played a Part. The Entertainment Given at the Opera House Last Night was a Success.
An exceedingly bright and pleasing entertainment was given last night at HEARD’s opera house, by pupils from the third to the senior grades of the McKinney Public School, to a large, appreciative and thoroughly satisfied audience. Notwithstanding the excessive and oppressive heat that held sway throughout the evening. The most noteworthy feature of the entertainment was the Fancy Drill rendered by thirty-two little girls. The children did so well in the drill that one was led to believe for the time being that they were what they impersonated – fairies.
The impersonation of an elderly lady by Miss Lenna MOORE, (Grandma) was excellent, especially in the Lullaby song.
The Brownie band scored a decided hit with their songs, funny antics and gyrations, also by filching the picnic lunches and making their get-away safe.
A Bicycle Club.
In an interview with O. A. BRANNON, the cycle dealer, we learned that he would give such an organization as a bicycle club his heartily support and do all in his power to make the club a success.
