i i jSi PINEHURST, MOORE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA. ftHl BEAUTIFUL TABLEAUX! Young Women Entertain for Worthy Ganse at the Village Hall. Thirty-three Dollar is Added to the Dickinson Colored School fund a a. llesult. A N EVENING of tableaux and living pictures provided a delightful even ing's entertainment at the Village Hall, Tuesday, which was witnessed by a com pany of Villagers which taxed the capacity of the hall. Music furnished by The Holly Inn orchestra, contributed much to the enjoyment of the evening. At the close of the entertainment a collection was taken for the benefit of the Dickinson Colored School, and $33.13 was secured. Two clever representations of well known advertisements opened the pro gram. In the first, Miss Alma Sarles of ltoanoke, Va., reproduced the Columbia bicycle advertisement, standing in regal dignity beside a bicycle under the famil iar motto: "Pro Deo et Patria," the lines of her beautiful figure, brought out clearly by a background of stars and stripes. "We are advertised by our loving friends" found in the second an amus ing illustration. Master Clement Bow ers of Binghamton, N. Y., and Miss Frances Turner of New York, made most dainty and delightful Mellin's Food Babies. The first of the tableaux was "Priscilla," Miss Maria Wescott of Hopedale, Mass., serene yet piquante, in Puritan gray, seated beside her spinning wheel. In "Young George Washington," Mas ter Clement Bowers, so well portrayed the "Father of His Country" in his juve nile days, as to be easily recognized by all, and the tell-tale and historic hatchet was but an effective accessory. The familiar picture of "The Fencing Girl" was given new vitality by the dashing and vigorous pose of Miss Fran ces Philpott of Boston. "Old Japan" wag portrayed in all its winning sweetness as impersonated by little Miss Frances Turner, charmingly gowned and posed with fan and flowers beneath gay lanterns. "Nydia, The Blind Girl of Pompeii," was excellently portrayed by Miss Phil pott. The program was most agreeably varied at this point, by a recitation : A Monologue, "Easter Morning," given by Mrs! William Turner of New York. The charming magnetism of Mrs. Turner's manner is already known to many here, and her audience was not disap pointed in her rendering of the clever satire on a young girl's morning in church. The sparkling "Portrait of a Spanish Lady," by Miss May Freeman of Bridge port, Conn., in black mantilla, crimson rose and all, was one of the most effec tive of the "portraits" of the evening. A second portrait, that of fair "Maid Marian," for which Miss Mabel Chrysler of Williamsport, Pa., made a winsome model, added a dainty and romantic touch. In "The Fortune Teller," the striking contrast between the exquisite fairness of the girl and the dusky color of the negro, made a facinating picture. Miss Sarles took the part of the maiden, and Mamie Mclver, the obliging maid at The Cedars, made an excellent "Mammy." In "Greek Dancing Girls," (Miss Chrysler) fresh, joyous, youth and they had learned of the awful vow, awaiting the execution of the sentence. Miss Edith Bearse of East Orange, N. J., made a striking and beautiful Hebrew maiden both in the pride and freshness of her joy, and in the calm and stately agony of her grief. Miss Chrysler, Miss Sarles and Miss Goodman were able sup porters. In "Out of Colonial Times" Miss Chrysler was shown as the debonair and bewitching maiden with powdered hair and fluttering fan, awaiting only the coming of a gallant cavalier to perform a minuet. The last number of the program, and a fitting close to a delightful evening, was the "Spanish Dance" by Miss Phil pott. The rhythmic, undulating move ments of the dance and its spirit of gay sparkling life, gave an artistic climax to the evening's program. The entertainment was arranged and carried out by Miss Chrysler, and she was ably assisted by guests at The Lenox and Concord. . FAIR WOMANKIND IN BEAUTIFUL TABLEAUX. ItANIftSEEirS "SMITHY.' laughter seemed to radiate from the swaying figure who, with tambourine poised above her head, challenged the whole world to mirth, while a com panion (Miss Sarles) seated near by, ac companied her on the lyre. The next tableau was the most strik ing of the evening : a brilliant picture not soon to be forgotten. The partici pants were Miss Philpott as Cleopatra and Miss Chrysler, Miss Sarles and Miss Hazel Goodman were the fair attendants. Ths pathetic, deeply human interest which centers about the story of "Jeptha's Daughter" was poetically shown in two tableaux. In the first were seen the daughter of Jeptha and her maidens advancing, with music and dance to welcome the father on his re turn. The second scene portrayed them in all the abandonment of grief after Painting- at The Carolina is Only Oil Copy in Existence. An interesting story is connected with the large painting which hangs at the left of the door opening into the social hall at The Carolina. This is, as many are aware, a copy of Sir Edwin Land seer's most celebrated painting, "The Smithy," which hangs in the National Gallery at London. The picture at The Carolina is the only oil copy in existence, and was secured through the efforts of Mr. W. Fuller Tufts of Brookline, Mass. It i in conse quence, extremely valuable and much desired by many art lovers in the country. FREEMAN CLDB CHAMPION! Defeats H. C. Parshall in Final Round of Championship Tourney. JL. F.
