The  Shelbyville  Republican
Friday Afternoon, March 31, 1196[sic]
Entertained This Afternoon By Mrs. Albert F. Wray.
          Mrs. Albert F. Wray, of South Harrison street, was the hostess this afternoon for the members of the Catherine Merrill Circle at the regular meeting.  Mrs. Minner Fuller  was to have been the hostess but the place was changed for convenience.
          Two papers composed the afternoon's program, both of which concerned modern day writers and their works.  Mrs. Stanley E. Bowman  read the first, which was an explanation of the book, "Treasures of the Humble," whose author was the subject of the second paper -- Maurice Maeterlinck.  The second paper, which in reality was a biography, was read by  Mrs. Isaac Carter.  Both papers were expressive of diligent work on the part of the compositors and were extremely interesting.
          Following the program a social hour was enjoyed by the ladies present.

Wild West Shows and Hear-
ing Report of His Death He
Came Home to "Prove" It.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
          william Merrill,  better known as "Boney" who was reported to have been killed in Michigan, one day last week while with the  John Robinson  shows, appeared here suddenly last night.  This morning "Boney" said that he was not very much of a dead man.
          Since leaving home a few weeks ago, he has been with the Riggs Wild West Shows and they have been playing in Illinois, West Virginia, Ohio, and this week the aggregation is at Huntington, attending the county fair at that place.  He received information that he was reported to have been killed one day last week and, after the news reached him, he immediately boarded a train and came home to spend a day or two with his mother.
          He is very anxious to find the person that started the rumor of his death.  He intends returning to Huntington in the next two or three days.
