Welsh Bros. Show.
Welsh Brother's show exhibited in
this place last Friday. The audiences
were not as large as last year. The
entertainment provided was of a high
character and Is a better 25 cent show
than has ever come to this pl'tw,
Some disappointment rests with ili
people who attended the show lust
year, first because they did not show
all in the afternoon that was on the
program. In the first place the man
agement did not advertise a menagerie
and it should be known that at the af
ternoon performance last year there
were so many people that some of the
best attractions had to be omitted.
While the attendance ihUyear could
not have been satisfactory to the man
agement, the entertainment provided
was worth more than the prtce charg
ed for admission. The exhibition of
the trained horses alone was worth
more than the price of admission
Welsh Bros., on account of too large a
crowd last year were compelled to omit
some of their best attractions and
hence a (treat many of our people were
disappointed. This year Welsh Bros.
and those who remained away were
disappointed. The circus people do
not propose to give up coming to Mid
dleburg as they propose coming back
next year. And as they have redeem
ed themselves, they are entitled to full
houses and we believe they will ge
them. All those who saw the show
this year will welcome them back next

School to School Visitation.
As was stated in last week's paper
by a communication from "a mcmlicr
of the executive committee" that they
had taken steps to have the 'school to
school visitation in the near future.
It is hoped that all olllcers of their rc
sM'ctive schools will interest them
selves in this matter so that we may
assist one another in getting out of a
rut that retards the progress of the
school or be assisted by some other
school to assist us. This is a stepping
stone to the House to House Visitation
that will be pushed later on. All Sun
day school workers should prayerfully
work for the betterment of their re
spective schools and to that extent
would better the schools throughout
the county. A few cannot do all tho
work, but by -he assistance of all the
ofllcers and teachers much good can
be done. Let all do their best to make
our schools a success In the upbuild
ing of Christianity in our county,
