      Birthday Party.
      Miss Theresa Martin, leading lady with "The House of a Thousand Candles" company, was given a birthday party by the union stage employes of the New Temple last night after the performance. The event was pronounced a most enjoyable one by every one present.

      The Morey Stock Company will be the attraction at the Airdonme [sic] all next week. The Morey Stock is under the same management as "The Llower [sic] of the Ranch" company which played the New Exchange Theatre some time ago and have the enviable reputation of having the best of the best in every respect, regardless of expense, and to maintain the reputation that they have established, in offering Morey Stock company they offer Miss Theresa L. Martin, better known to the people of Temple as Miss Theresa Lincecum, daughter of the late Dr. L. G. Lincecum of Lampasas, who has been engaged for the leading roles and is featured in her own plays. Miss Martin needs no introduction as her many friends and admirers have known her since childhood, and they will be pleased to have the estimable little lady with them for a week, and an opportunity to renew the pleasures of childhoods happy days. Louis Lincecum, better known as "Son," is with the company, playing the leading roles opposite his sister, and the supporting company is all that can be desired as they were engaged to support Miss Martin, and every one of her friends know that they must be good or they would not be capable of holding up their position if they were not better than the average as Miss Martin is certainly a star of no mean magnitude. The Morey Stock offers Miss Martin in her favorite play, "Dixie Land," next Monday night, she having chosen this play for her opening performance so her friends may have a chance to see her to the best advantage.

      Morey Stock Company is Making Good Evidenced by Unusually Large Attendance Nightly.
      Patrons of the Airdome have been treated to some good acting this week. The Morey Stock Company, with Miss Theresa L. Martin as the leading lady, is meeting with popular approval, and full houses have resulted every night. Last night the crowd was estimated at fully a thousand and many were turned away, being unable to find a seat. The bill last night was "The Better Way," a play in which the various members of the cast had full scope to show their ability. Miss Martin was easily the favorite with the audience, and her appearance was always the signal for applause...

      At the Airdome All Next Week, With Good Bills.

      The Morey Stock company, which comes to the Lyric Airdome for a week's engagement commencing next Monday, is under the same management as the "Flower of the Ranch," which played in Parsons some time last fall, and the same features that made that show one of the good ones are to be found in the Morey Stock Co...Besides offering the Morey Stock Co., they have an added attraction in Miss Theresa Lincecum Martin, who has been engaged for the leading roles and is featured in all the plays presented. Miss Martin needs no introduction to the Parsons theatre-goers, as she is well known here both socially and theatrically, having been seen here in "The District Leader" and "A House of a Thousand Candles," and at one time being a member of the Stater Theatrical companies.

      It will no doubt be of interest to the local lodge of Elks to learn that Miss Theresa Lincecum Martin, the leading lady with the Morey Stock company, is one of the four ladies in the world to have been honored by having the honorary membership of the B. P. O. E. conferred upon her. Miss Martin is one of the "Does," as they are called, and that she his proud of the honor and distinction, goes without saying, and her "Hello Bill" is said with a vim and a heartiness of a veteran, and her cheery call helps to make the world brighter and happier and to make things appear as the "Best People on Earth" would have them.

      Played at Kirksville While His Baby Was Dying in Kansas City.
      From the Kirksville Express
      Everybody has heard stories of actors who have had to play light parts when their hearts were aching and of the clowns who covorted, with apparent zest and lightness of feeling, while their children were dying; but Kirksville people probably never got to witness any such thing until last week -- and then they did not know it.

      Accompanying Miss Theresa L. Martin, who has been playing in Kirksville the latter part of the week, was her brother Lew Lincecum. Lincecum, by the way is Miss Martin's real name, the other being her stage title only.

      Thursday afternoon, shortly before the evening performance, Lincecum received a long distance telephone call from Kansas City, stating that his wife and week-old baby were very low and if he wished to see them alive he should return to Kansas City at once. Lincecum could not get away before midnight, so he played his regular part in the play that evening and caught the 12:53 a.m. train.

      When the husband arrived in Kansas City it appeared that both his wife and baby were improving in health and early Saturday morning, the doctor thought they were in such condition that he could rejoin the company. Lincecum arrived in Kirksville at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon.

      At 5 o'clock that afternoon, while he was talking enthusiastically to his friends here about a 12-pound baby at his home, he got another telephone call, and learned that the baby was dead and if he wanted to see his wife alive he must hurry back.

      Saturday night he took the part of one of the "Three Twins," a comedy role, and none in the audience could guess the anguish in his heart which crept into his face between acts. He caught the midnight train again and rushed back to Kansas City.

      Friends here have not heard any more about his wife's condition and they are hoping that she has rallied.
