Easier Dance
The pleasure of Easter Monday
reached a climax here among
those who love music and the
dance, when a happy throng fill
ed the Masonic Opera House on
the evening of that day. Under
the spell of entrancing strains
furnished by the Washington
Orchestra, the merry couples en
joyed every moment of the time
until one hour after mid-night,
when the dance ended and those
participating were invited to
luncheons served at several homes
in the town. There were quite a
number of chaperones and others
present, and the occasion was a
most enjoyable one to all. The
figures were led by Luke Lamb
with Miss Annie Fagan.

One of the most pleasing pro
ductions seen on the local stage
in sometime was the presentation
on Monday evening of "The Prin
cess," dramatized from Tenny
son's poem with which every col
lege student is familiar. The
dramatization was made by J. T.
Jerome, principal of the William
ston Graded School, and was one
which showed a remarkable skill
in dramatic art. Mr. Jerome
brought forcibly to the mind some
of the most charming parts of the
celebrated poem.
The play was arranged in four
acts, and in the first act one of
the most amusting scenes was
that when "Flotian," "Cyril"
and the "Prince" changed to
woman's attire in order to. enter
the "Princess" school for girls.
Their disguise was very clever,
but as the poem goes, "Florian"
was soon recoginized by his sis
ter. The duel between the
"Prince" and "Arac" was
brought out, and Leroy Anderson
was very effective as the wound
ed prince.
The following characters were
impersonated: "The Princess"
Miss Mary Dare Brown; "Lady
Psyche" Miss Eva Peel; "Lady
Blanch" Miss Ellie Wynne,
"melissa" Miss Josephine Rob
ertson; "The Prince, " Leroy An
derson; "Cyril" Ollie Roberson;
"Florian" Yates Dowell, "Arac"
Maurice Watts: "Prince's father"
J. T. Jerome, "Princess'father,"
Gilbert Peel; "Psyche's baby,"
Thelma Brown, and the young
students of the school were a
deVy of pretty young girls from
the Gradded School.

guests were conducted to the
cloak room where wraps were laid
aside, each one present being
handsomely arrayed in evening
costume. Miss Nannie Biggs who
was to have read a paper entitled
"The Romance and Travels of
De Sota" was unavoidably absent
and upon request the hostess read
"Early Days in korth Carolina,"
which had been heard at a pre
vious meeting. But the interest
ing material skillfully handled
and fitted together,. makes the
paper worth re-reading by the
writer whose manner of reading
would render even the dullest
artiffle interesting.
In the dining room to which
the guests were invited, one had
a suggestion of the Easter sea
son—chocolate and white eggs
with a guest's name on each de
signated the place at the hand
somely arranged table. Dainty
refreshments were served among

The Man who Never Gives Up
There are men—and there are
men. There are men who are pos
sessed of will power, plus en
deavor— who enjoy climbing, who
glory in achievement, who prefer
the paths of difficulties.
Men of this caliber are supplied
with big stocks of courage. They
enjoy nothing more the exercis
ing of their brain powers, com
bined with the putting of their
physical prowess to the severest
To them the goal is ever ahead;
they climb, not in order to say,
"Behold me, the wonderful
man!" They put forth their ef
forts as self-imposed tests of
their own powers, that, when
they meet with success, they may
thrill with the joy of achieve
ment. *
Ambition and to arrive
somewhere Wwth while fires them
to perform seemingly miraculous
feats. To such men nothing
seems impossible, except to "give
The world awaits such men.
It matters not who they are,
where they come from—the world
wants them because they are

Such men come up from the
ranks—they are not bound by
destinies. They are not content
to be among the ordinaries.
They, there are others—we call
men, who lack all the stuff known
as "strength of character," who
have human aspirations, but are
totally minus the stability and
definiteness of purpose, and who
gradually become part of the

exertion, no wheels of ambition

thrill of work!

They have contracted the ha
bit of fear—they are afraid to
face defeat, or to fight against
troubles by utilizing the brain
power and the energy that nature
has bestowed upon them for just
such emergences.
Such men allow themselves to
be burdened with the belief that
they are not capable-that the
division is against them, and that
luck is about as dependable as
work. They have no inclination
to do and become, no desire to
follow any but the easiest course.
They cannot understand them
selves, but prefer rather to watch
the procession and complain.
Such men have tried, maybe,
but defeat to them has not been
an incident—it has been the
finish. Defeat has left them
afraid to face the dangers of life,
afraid to go on, to fight out their
own destiny, and they are lost in
the circle.
Every man must decide for
himself whether or not he will
pay the price, whether he will
lead, or whether he will be rele
gated to the over-crowded proces
sion of ordinaries—the men who
give up at the first obstacle that
crosses their path.—B. A. Loeb.
