PERFECT IN EVERY DETAIL
Living Pictures Provide Evening of Rare
Delight at The Carolina.

ERFECTLY carried out
in every detail, the
tableaux and living pic
tures arranged by the
young women of The
Carolina, provided an
evening of rare delight for one of the
largest audiences ever assembled in the
Music hall. The program was given in
and makeup above criticism.
Miss Carolyn Fuller's interpretation
of "The Chorus Girl" and "Milady"
were both vivid and dramatic; her
chorus girl costume, perhaps, one of the
best of the evening : a blue satin, fur
trimmed gown worn over a lace skirt
and set off by a large picture hat. Miss
Ruby Sewall was radiant as "The Bride"
in white satin, veil and bouquet of lilies,
and stunning as "Countess Potoca". As
"Priscilla", Miss Priscilla Beall was
very winsome in grey gown, white neck
kerchief, dainty cap and her dark hair
in two braids, the spinning wheel giving
a finishing touch, and she also made a
refreshing "Summer Girl."
As an "Old Fashioned Girl" Miss
Lady Maud Fuller seemed to have just
stepped from a picture frame ; her gown
an old fashioned silk with lace neck
kerchief and black picture hat, and as
borough Portrait" was a striking fac
similie, and Miss Angela Moore and Miss
Margaret Johnson were very sweet as
"Her First Sorrow" and " Innocence".
Miss Katherine Heffernan made a
dainty "Rosemary", and Miss Dorothy
Burrage a smart "Equestrienne".
As "The Girl with the Muff" and the
"Trained Nurse" Miss Dorothy Fuller
was splendid, a touch of the artist's
studio was given by Miss Alma Mackay
in an ideal head, and Miss Grace Higgins
as "The Brunette," Miss Charlotte Matt
lage as "The Belle of the Colonies",
Miss Marcia Humphrey as "Mrs. Sid
dons", Miss Claire Renwick as "The
Widow", and Miss E. L. Rockwood as
"Madame Le Brun" were all excellent.
Then, by way of contrast, was Mr. P. S.
MacLaughlin as "The Golfer", inimita
ble, of course, as "Mac" always is.
To the earnest efforts of a large com-

three parts: heads, figures and "The
Bachelor's Reverie" ; the first and sec
ond parts mainly reproductions of
famous masterpieces in art and the last
visions of the girls "The Bachelor" has
loved from first to last, as they flit be
fore his mind as he smokes in his easy
chair on the eve of his marriage. From
the standpoint of novelty and variety
the program could not have been better.
The arrangement of the stage was
most effective, a large gold frame,
flanked on either side by dark draperies,
serving as a "shadow box" for smaller
frames (oval and upright) which matted
in warm green and reflecting a soft glow
from the footlights, stood out in strong
contrast against a rich background of
dark crimson ; the lighting of heads and
figures admirable, and the costuming
"The Girl with the Green Bow" she was
also excellent. Miss Juliet II. Grif
fith as "The Girl with the Rose", and
"The Society Girl" was wondrously
beautiful; the latter costume of white
satin gown, lace coat and white plumed
picture hat suiting her perfectly. Miss
Harriet Horton made a vivacious "Coun
try Girl in pink gingham and straw hat,
and she was splendid as "The Girl with
the Broken Pitcher." Miss Catherine
Purdy was very chic as "Fluffy Ruffles",
and Miss Virginia Ireland made a stun
Miss Eleanor McCormick in red robe
and cap, was a brilliant "Portia", and
as a "Golf Girl" she depicted a familiar
type. Miss Gertrude Lamb made a su
perb "Audrey" and a handsome "Winter
Girl." Miss L. Allan as a "Gains-
mittee on which Miss Beall, Miss Fuller,
Miss Sewall and Mrs. Allan were active
members, the entire colony is indebted ;
the result of the evening a handsome
sum added to the charitable fund of the
Village Club. The young women were
assisted by Mr. Paul E. Gardner, who
announced the pictures, and Messrs.
Ralph N. Gardner, E. L. Scofield Jr.,
andW. S. Dillon, who assisted on the
stage. Mr. H. H. Kirkpatrick and Mr.
Vernon Lloyd posed in the "Fluffy Buff
lea" picture and Mr. P. S. MacLaughlin
was the grey haired bachelor of many
and varied loves. The only regret con
nected is that visitors must wait another
year before they will be privileged to
enjoy a similar treat, for the young
women, in spite of numerous requests,
hardly feel equal to a repetition.
Decorated in red and green the Music
hall presented a pleasing appearance,
streamers of bunting running from the
center above the floor to the sides were
set off by mistletoe and other greens,
crossed hatchets being used on the walls
and cherry trees on the stage; the
lights shaded with crimson tissue.
The program included many effective
marches in which flags, scarfs and
favors were used and the figures were
mainly many "frolics." Among these
was a race in which young men strug
gled for the posession of a dainty hand
herchief which meant a dance and
another in which the young men tried
vainly to cross the floor with feathers
balanced on their noses, and in a third
a wild scramble ensued in endeavors to
