A Pleasant Time.
The pupils of Smithville Academy
held an extertainment at the Court
House in that town last night which
was a very enjoyable and interesting
affair. It was under the management
of Prof. W. J. Scroggs, the principal of
the academy.and consisted of dialogue?,
speeches and vocal aud instrumental
music, in each of which the, pupils ac
quitted themselves very creditably.
The ball was crowded witbparcnts and

generally, who were much pleased with'
tho entertainment; ' ,

a large audience at the Opera House

had lots of fun in witnessing the per

to make fun and laughter and as such

way suited to iu proper performance.
Miss Flora Moore, the leading lady, is
a most superb soubrette actress and
carried her part with a vim and spirit
which made the honse ring with up
