In 1884, the W. C. T. U. had a well dug near the town hall, farther east than the pump now standing there. It was not a success and later there was at great expense to the W. C. T. U., the present driven well made there, which furnishes most excellent water. At the first pump was placed a silver drinking cup, marked with date 1884 and W. C. T. U. This cup was not treated well, even one time being used as a target. It was not one of our boys who shot it, and it cost the boy's father two dollars to have it repaired. It has not been used there since. But mugs get smashed and tin cups rust, and nothing is very inviting. We now give you the silver cup again, trusting that you will treat it well. There is nothing too good for our boys and girls. To them we soon must pass over the work of the town. As a proof of your trustworthiness, guard well the cup that we place at the town pump. It is yours, but please use it carefully.

The opening of the season at Hampton Beach Casino Theatre will take place next Saturday afternoon and evening and the attraction will be one of Manager Joseph J.

The fact that Manager Flynn's companies are to be seen at the Casino Theatre the coming summer and that Tom Whyte will again have charge of the company and also appear in some of the principal comedy roles of the different productions to be given, is in itself an assurance that patrons of this theatre can look forward to a series of excellent productions again this summer and feel assured that a season of fine performances are about to begin. The bill for the first week will be the merry musical frivolity "The Honeymoon", a laughable two act comedy replete with the latest musical numbers and latest song hits. Mr. Whyte will be seen in the principal comedy role and he will be aided and abetted in the fun making by one of he best companies Manager Flynn has ever sent to the Casino Theatre. "The Honeymoon" will be given on Saturday, July 2nd, afternoon and evening and for the week commencing Monday July 4th every afternoon and evening.
