THE PINE HURST OUTLOOK.
Ye Olde Folke Concert.
The regular weekly entertainment in
the Village Hall lust Wednesday evening
took the form of an old folks' concei t
and was one of the greatest successes of
the season. The advance sale of tickets
was large and soon after the doors were
opened the hall was well tilled with our
At the close of a finely rendered over
ture by the Holly Inn orchestra the cur
tain rose, disclosing a very pretty scene.
Across the front of the stage were seated
the fair singers clothed in costumes of ye
olden time. Hack of these, in another
row, were the male members of the com
pany resplendent in bright colored waist
coats, milled bosoms and powdered hair;
while on either hand and at the back of
the. stage a tasteful arrangement of ferns,
foliage and flowering plants added greatly
to the beauty of the scene.
The ladies wore costumes of varied
styles which contained all the colors of
the rainbow. Some of the bonnets were
marvelous creations, but to masculine
eyes, at least, the faces beneath them
were just as attractive as though set off
by specimens of the modern milliner's
art. They certainly looked bewitching
in their quaint dresses, which added
greatly to the elTectiveness of the enter
tainment. The opening chorus was grandly sung
and called forth a hearty encore. This
was followed by two more of the old
time hymns, that were also well received.
The next number was the "Ilanthem,"
as described by a British sailor, and was
very effectively given by Mr. E. Rogers,
the "Pilgrim." In response to the hearty
applause, Mr. Rogers gave another read
ing. Then came a glee bv the old folks1
chorus, which was charmingly rendered.
Next a duet, "Dost Thou Love Me,
Sister liuth?" by ye two olde folke,"
(Miss Lewis and Master Robinson), made
a decided hit, and they were obliged to
respond to a hearty encore.
This was followed by several grand
old fashioned hymns and anthems which
were sung in a very spirited manner by
the old folks' chorus, and the first part
of the program was closed by singing
"My Country Tis of Thee," in which the
Those in costume on the stage were :
Mis. Smith of the Magnolia; Miss Lich
field, Miss Smith, Miss Lewis, Mr.
Rogers and Mr. St. Clair, of the Cedars;
Mr. and Mrs. Iiobinson and Master
Fletcher Iiobinson, of the Lenox; Misses
Lindsev and Ellis, of the Palmetto; Mrs.
Barber, of the Marlborough; Mrs. Rich
ardson and Dr. Hersey, of the Berkshire;
and Miss Warden and Mr. Vale. This
chorus was augmented by a number of
singers who were concealed from view
at 'he sides of the stage.
The Holly Inn orchestra, under the
direction of Mr. Trev. Sharp, kindly
volunteered their services and rendered
the musical numbers with an excellence
that is characteristic of that organization.
Mr. Sharp, who sat facing the chorus,
wielded the baton and was of great assist
ance to the singers.
Great credit is due the promoters of
this entertainment, among whom wei
Mr. Rogers, Dr. Hersey, Mr. Sharp and
Mr. St. Clair, for the efficient manner in
which the whole affair was planned and
carried out. Several of the ladies also
merit a generous share of the praise
The entertainment was one of the most
enjoyable of the many that have been
presented in our village.
A little diversion that provoked con
siderable laughter was created by the
"Pilgrim." who arose, during the short
wait between two of the musical num
bers, and with old-time courtesy passed
his snuff-box to Mrs. Richardson, who
gracefully accepted a pinch and with the
dexterity of an expert proceeded to sniff
it up her nose.
The second part of the program con
sisted of the one-act farce "That Rascal
Pat" presented by the Pinehurst Amateur
Dramatic Union, which was given by
special request. While the former pre
sentation of this play was first class,
that of last Wednesday was a great
improvement, and the players made a
decidedly better showing. It was a
fitting wind-up of one of the most suc
cessful entertainments of the winter:

Public Whist Party.
Last Wednesday evening the Village
Hall was the scene of one of the most
enjoyable social events of the season, the
occasion being a progressive whist party
to which all our villagers had been in
vited, and the very general response to
the Invitation must have been gratifying
to the committee having the matter in
hand. The front of the stage was very
prettily decorated with ferns and potted
plants, the numerous tables were taste
fully arranged, and the hall presented a
very attractive appearance as the numer
our electric lamps diffused their light
over the company assembled there.
There were nineteen tables occupied
and play continued throughout the even
ing. A number of handsome prizes for
both ladies and gentlemen were presented
to the successful contestants. During
the evening dainty refreshments, con
sisting of ham, tongue, chicken and
shrimp sandwiches, macaroons, assorted
cake, lemonade and fruit punch, were
served by four young gentlemen dressed
as French cooks.
The committee having the affair in
charge consisted of Mesdames Stowe,
Cormerais, Smith and Barber, and they
are to be congratulated on the grand
success that attended their efforts.
It is intended to hold these whist par
ties every two weeks during the balance
of the season.

Please Keep In the Paths.
For some time past there has been a
growing tendency among our villagers
to make short cuts across the lawns and
planted spaces, instead walking in the
paths. In many cases this has resulted
in the destruction of considerable vegeta
tion and in making many unsightly paths
across the lawns.

attain their object they are obliged to

very difficult to produce a good turf, and
