Theater goers of Granton have a treat in store when "A Cow Boy’s Girl" comes to the Granton Opera House on Thursday, Feb. 23, 1911. This is one of the quiet melodramas that burn little power.  Still abounding in heart interest and thrilling climaxes, it tells a beautiful love story of the plains, with just enough comedy to relieve the intensity of the dramatic situation. The story is told in five acts and the Company carries all of their own scenery and stage equipment for the entire production. The plot and scenes are laid along the Rio Grande River in the early nineties, a very interesting period on the history of Texas.  Mr. Ernest Stout the author has added but a very little fictitious embellishment to the already interesting facts. The costumes which are historically correct is a feature of the performance.  "A Cow Boy’s Girl" comes to Manager A. J. Knorr highly recommended and he personally guarantees it to his patrons.

An auction sale - at C. A. Latamore’s farm, 3 ½ miles south of Spokeville in the Town of York on Thursday, February 23; Delbert Latamore, Proprietor
