Theatrical Event of.the Season
Considerable interest is centered m
the forthcoming engagement of Flor
ence Davis, supported by Elliott Dexter
in "The Player Maid" next Tuesday
night, Nov. 20th at the New Masonic
Opera House, owing to' the fact that
Miss Davis will present this excrucia
tingly funny comedy in this city with
the same strong cast, magnificent cos
tumes and elaborate scenic effects that
have been utilized since its initial per
formance. Manager Kehoe was indeed
fortunate in securing this attraction
and there is little doubt but that it will
prove the theatrical event of the sea
son. The play itself has a well defined
plot, but an exceptionally funny one.
Ludicrous situations follow each other
in rapid succession so fast in fact that
one has not stopped laughing at a fun
ny incident when something- else oc
curs that causes a roar far greater
than the proceeding one. It is said
that in the second act of "The Player
Maid," where Miss Davis tears up fur
niture, bric-a-brac, etc., in her attempt
to horrify the staid London nobility,
she has given to the stage one of the
funniest scenes in the history of the
drama. "To laugh is to live to frown
is to die."; All the world enjoys a good
hearty laugh and that is the natural ri-
suit from a visit to "The Player Maid."
As an artist, Miss Davis has few equals
and unlike many others, she never
stoops to horseplay or buffoonery. Her
knowledge of stage technique enables fund required to meet the annual in
ner to get real unadulterated fun out of terest and provided a sinking fund for
the situations. Fun that sparkles and the payment of the principle of the

Greensboro, Nov. 10 Congressman
Blackburn, was here last night to at
end a meeting of the Board of Direc
tors of the Tar Heel "Publishing Com
pany, of which corporation he is presi
dents There was nota quorum present
but it is understood ; that Mr John
"rouch, the Congressman's private
Secretary who has been managing the
paper for several months most success
fully will be continued in the manage
ment Mr. Blackburn left on a mid
night train for Washington. He declar
ed that heWould contest the election of
Hackett to Congress, if the certificate
of election was awarded him. He says
that he can establish the fact that gtosa
frauds were practiced by Democratic
election officers' in several of the back
districts in many of the counties, and
declared that the returns from h;s na
tive county of Watauga were still held
back and had not been forwarded.
At a meeting of the County Board of
Education last night, Hon. John C. Ken
nett, a farmer of Pleasant Garden, was
elected a member of the Board to fill
the vacancy caused by the resignation
of Prof. J Allen Holt, elected to the
State Senate. Mr. Kennett has been
one of the most active champions of
public education m" the county, having
at one time taught in the public schools.
He has been enthusiastic in the various
campaigns or the districts lor local
school tax, his speeches greatly aiding
the carrying of each election in favor
of the tax. He has represented the
county in the Legislature with great
ability and has filled other positions of
honor. To be a member of the Board
of Education of Guilford County, is con
sidered one of the most honorable po
sitions in the county, and the new mem
ber will make a worthy successor of
Prof. Holt, who held the place for 29
years, tie will De a nt associate ior
Prof. W. T. Whitsett and Mr. Charles
H. Ireland, the two other members of
the Board. This Board now has the
administration each year of nearly $60,
OQO for the county schools alone.
The failure of the good roads bond
issues to carry on a popular vote in the
progressive counties of Mecklenburg
and Waka, emphasizes again the fact,
that Guilford is the only county
in the State if not in the South,
that has by . a voluntary popular
voe, voted affirmatively for a bond is
sue for good roods. Not only did this
county vote a bond issue of $300,000 for
macadamizing the roads, but the ques
tion has not been made the subject of
political agitation or demagogery al
though since the work began, two hot
political campaigns have been waged
and two elections held In the county. The
board of highway commissioners are
administering the fund, and having the
road work done and there has been no
serious kicking. The bonds are negoti
ated as the needs require, not exceed'
ing $65,000 per year, and the county
affairs are in such' condition, the last
bonds brought a premium of ten cents
on the dollar.
Since Guilford voted bonds, and be
gan extensive permanent road grading
and building.the contiguous counties of
Forsyth, Alamance and Rockingham
have made futile efforts to provide bond
issues by popular vote. It has already
been demonstrated in Guilford, that

Thank-Offerings to Our Orphanages.
The work of the orphans' homes of
North Carolina is regarded highly by
our people, and these institutions are
worthy of heartiest support. We can
see something of the good they are ac
complishing, but the far-reaching, ever
widening influence of their work we are
not bow able to fully know and meas
ure. The; are being greatly used of
God in the betterment of lives, in the
salvation of souls.
Thanksgiving Day has been adopted
by our people as a time of special effort
for and gifts to the orphanages of the
State. Can we in a better, more fitting
way express our gratitude to the Giver
of all good than by "helping in the care
and equipment for life of these home
less children? Such a method of ex
pressing thanks to God appeals to us,
and, surely, it is pleasing to God.
The aid received by the orphans'
homes of North Carolina at Thanks
riving is a factor in the maintenance
and improvement to their work,
May the observance of Thanksgiving
Day this year be even a greater means
of honoring God and blessing mankind,

Greensboro, Nov. 12. Workmen this

foundation of the Elks,' Home, on the
lot recently purchased by the Greens
boro lodge at the corner of Greene and
SycBmore ptreets, just to the rear of
the Benbow hotel building, and in the
heart of the city. This building which
was planned by architect Western, of
Greensboro, and to be constructed by
J. C. Morris & Son, of Greensboro,
will be completed next spring and will
be a model modern fraternity home and
club house. It will be ttiree stories of
stone, steel ancf pressed brick, and will
have all the equipments of parlors, read
ing room, lodge room, auditorium and
offices, baths and gymnasium that go
to make comfort and convenience. It
will cost when completed and finished,
about $50,000. The lodge of Elks here

There were about one hundred of the
teachers of Guilford county present Sat
urday, when president Foust called the
first quarterly meeting of the Teachers
Association to order. The principle
topic of dibcussion was the "Township
High School and its Object."
There are now in the county 25 of the
public schools with the high school
course taught specially, and the discus
sion this morning, in which Dr. W. T.
Whitsett, Superintendent Swift, of the
city s.hools, Superintendent Foust, of
the county schools, and Prof. O. W.
Woolsey took leading parts, was as to
whether these schools should be con
ducted as preparatory for college course
or as training for the making of an ed
ucation sufficient for a life's develop
ment and work. The unanimous agree
ment was that these schools should be
run on the principal that when a girl or
boy completed the course, an education
sufficient to carry them through life, as
well rounded citizens and well equipped
mentally should be the object of teach
ers, the preparatory college course be
ing simply an incidental of the train
ing. For the purpose of uniformity in
the county school system, it was also
resolved that the "Old North State"
copy book be adopted in all the schools.

The intrigue and mystery of the

splendid acting at the opera house last
night. The play "Princess of Paris",
was one which does not appeal to the
popular idea of a drama yet it was high
ly emotional and the climaxes sufficient
ly expressed to create applause. Miss
Rose Mayo as Princess Hortense De

yond doubt one ef the most brilliant
actress es that has been seen here. In
her support Frank Edwards as Morande ;

entire company was composed of super

as finely played as was "Monseiur Beau
