Miss Gertie'Covell has been teaching in the McLain school house in L.QUS Oreek, and closed her term with 'an excellent public program, She was so well liked that the school secured her for Bother term. * Lack of stage facilities and of electric lights interfered with as good a production of Shore Acres last night as might have been given, but the large audience present enjoyed the simple and life like story of an eastern farm in spite of these defects. Shore Acres is a beautiful play, and was well presented. The opera house company had been to an expense of $5 in rearranging the stage machinery to accommodate the special scenery which the advance man said could be put in But on the arrival of the company it was found that there was not room enough, for the, barn, lighthouse, and other parts. These accessories add wonderfully to such a play. But it was enjoyable without them. WE'RE right in line on the erocerv Question. M. Z. GROVE & SON!
