The Comanche Chief, Comanche, Texas, 18 December 1879


NABERS-GRAVES. At the residence of the bride’s father, Camp Colorado, Coleman county, Mr. Jame B. NABERS, of Comanche, to Miss Mary GRAVES, on 8th inst.

Who would have thought that our Jim had such Grave(s) intentions? But there is nothing like gaining new Nabers, and we admire your pluck, James, and may you and your happy bride live long and prosper.


Mr. J.D. BROCK was arrested last week upon a charge of obtaining goods under false pretences. It is said that he sold ELLIOTT & WRIGHT two imaginary bales of cotton by sample, and obtained nearly $50 worth of goods upon the same. He waved examination before Justice BROWN and gave bail to appear at District Court.

"The Drunkard" was played at the College, Tuesday night last, by some of our amateurs. The piece was well played, considering the short time they were engaged in preparing it. The new scenery, painted by Mr. ZERR, added a hundred per cent to the piece. The ladies—Misses REDDEN, PAYNE, NABERA, SADIE and Lizzie FORD—all acted splendidly. Messrs. Rufus and Wm. SWITZER played Cribbs and Wm Dowton real well, and the same can be said of Mr. BEEMAN, as the Drunkard.

Prof. SWITZER’s school exhibition will take place tomorrow night. Everyone is invited to attend.

Mrs. J.T. CHIDESTER has returned from Arkansas.

WIESENDANGER, Comanche’s genial and accomplished barber, requests us to state that he will erect a blackboard in his shop, and on it he will write the account of all who owe him and do not pay up by Jan. 1. Square up.
