PlayJMights
Big Audience
Is The One Outstanding
Home-talent Play in
Several Years
The highmark in home-staged pro
ductions was reached when "A Bache
lor's Honeymoon", a musical comedy,
waa played before a packed audi
torium hare last Friday nigttt. With
a carefully selected and well-trained
cast, the play met with 100 per cent
approval. It was rated the outstanding
home-talent play given here in sev
eral years.
No better selection of the principal j
characters could have been made than
the one offered and trained by Mr. and
% Mrs. Mclver. Miss Carrfe Delle White,
as Ophelia Higjpns, took the audience
by storm and brought an upheaval of
laughter time and again from the
large number of spectators. Messrs.
Leslie Fowden and H. M. Stubbs,
playing as Denny Maloney and Dea
con Smith, acted their parts well and
brought a hearty applause from the
entire house. The playing of Mrs. F. j
E. Wynne, as Betty, met with high
approval, and a charming way, she
rendered her part well. Mr. A. Hassell,
jr. fitted perfectly the part of Phillip
Springer, a young bachelor. His act
~ hi g was of an extra order, In fact it
compared favorably with that of the
professional.
The choruses were splendid and
caused one to wonder at the work of
only two weeks training. Among the
musical numbers offered, "Honey
moon Lane", "She Knows Her On
ions", "I'd Love To", "Heaven Will
Protect a Working Girl", and "Let 1 ®
All Be Pals", by the entire company,
were very much in keeping with the
success of the play.
The Frank Borthers, Charles and
Jack, as Terpsichorean artists, de
lighted their audience between acts
one and two. While their work was
good throughout, the eccentric dance
M Jack waa especially good.
The play was staged under the
auspices of the parents-teachers as
sociation and a substantia) profit was
made by the organisation.
Mission School in

Tonight, (Tuesday) at 7:80 o'-
clock, the fourth session of the local

Missionary work of the churches, and
the accomplishments that have result
ad.
County Agent Busy
Treating Tobacco Seed
One barrel of tobacco seed has been
treated for various diseases common
in tobacco by Agent T. B. Brandon
during the past few days. Thie a
mount was treated by the agent alone,

work in preventing the disease.

ased by Mr. Brandon, and he says it
la one of the best known in prepar
ing seed for planting.

THE ENTERPRISE
Town Council Considers
Wide Variety
Several New Ordinances
Were Passd; Dogs
to Be Shut Up
The general run of business came
before the board of town commission
ers at the regular meeting last night
with one or two questions added. On
the financial side of the affairs discus
sion ran from $lO to SIO,OOO. Mat
ters in the general column, unless
they were most urgent, were put in
the deferred column for further dis
cussion at a special meeting next
Monday night and at the regular meet
ing the first Monday in March.
Just before the commissioners'
meeting was called to order, Mayor
Coburn swore in several firemen to
serve as special poiice during the
week, their duties to be at the indoor
circus. The mayor stressed the im
portance of keeping order at the
show and to see that it was run on
a decent basis.
An invitation from the power and
water department of Greenville was
extended in a letter to the superin
tendent of lights and water and the
town oouncil. The letttr was read,
but just how many o'f the council will
attend was not learned.
Several points of law brought up at
a previous meeting were explained to
the board last night. Where taxes
have been listed incorrectly for any
length of time, the board may go back
as far as three years and refund the
Uxes paid by the taxpayer. Should
the taxpayer fail to list property, the
board can go back indefinitely and
collect. The point of law was brought
up when Dr. Jas. S. Rhodes found
that he had been paying more taxes
than was due the town for a long
period of years. Even though the
rules of law were laid before the
board, no settlemnet of the matter!
was effected, but a special meeting!
was called for Monday night at which !
time a hearing would be given Dr.
Rhodes.
Permit Dancing at Indoor Circaa
About this time several of the fire
man came in and asked permission to 1
stage a free dancf. each night at the
indoor circus this week, the dance to J
last 30 to 60 minutes. The mayor,'
speaking for the board, stated that |
such dances did not come under the |
jurisdiction of the board. Attention'
was called to the fact that it did
have power over the one to be held
next Thursday night.
The Brick Warehuse Co. was allow
ed $lO off a sl9 water bill when it
was shown by Mr. D. D. Stalls that
the water, or a greater part fcf it,
was used by the public in watering
teams.
The treasurer was given power to]
make certain adjustments in water
bills. This power was granted by the
beard when it was shown that several j
small families had water bills amount
ing to from $32 to S4O, and that such
bills could hardly be correct. The
families are to have their pipes ex
amined during the course of the next
few days. I
While no contract has been signed,!
the towf theatre has been rented to
Mr. J. W. Watts, jr., for the coming
year, March 1, 1927, to March 1, 1928,
for a sum of $6lO. The conditions'
that the contract will embody include
that the four churches, the Woman's j
Club, and the Kiwanis Club will have
the privilege to use the hall one night
each during the year, provided that
Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights
be the ones used and that 30 days'
notice be given the management. Two
night were given the school for its
commencements exercises, should
something happen that would prevent
the use of the school auditorium. For
these two nights no charge is to be
made, while the four churches and the
two clubs will be required to pay $26
each night. The board will not ad
vertise for sealed bids.
Diacuaa Itinerant Merchant*
The problem brought about by the
itinerant merchants was given a good
hearing, and while the matter went
unsettled, several suggestins were
made. The matter will be definitely
settled when the merchants of the
town can be visited by the mayor and
the suggestions offered at the meet-!
ing can be explained, leaving the
question to be settled as the mer
chants think best. The matter has
been taken up with Senator Moore,
as was suggested at a previous meet
ing when several merchants appeared
before the board. Mr. Moore stated
that nothing could be done other than
levy a privilege tax. Such a tax
would appfy to all th emerchants, so
it would be of little help. An ordi
nance embodying the privilege tax
was read, and before its passage can
be made it will be submitted for ap
proval to the local merchants. The
ordinance would require all merchants
to pay a privilege tax of SIOO and it
is so arranged that the local mer
chants could have that amount deduct
ed from their regular taxes. It is ex
pected this matter will be settled at
Williamston, Martin County, North Carolina, Tuesday February 8,1927

At a previous meeting of the board
consideration waa given the purchase
of machinery to work the streets of

matter was deferred to the one last
night. It was again deferred, since
the town is facing a SIO,OOO bill this
month. Something* will be done for
' the streets soon, however.
! The board hinted very strongly
that bill against the town running
over 80 days would not receive im
mediate attention. The board urged
tljgt bills be presented monthly. ..
The Mack truck sent here on ap
proval by the City of Richmond has
developed into trouble. The truck
was sent back with water in the radia
tor, the cold weather came on; and,

cleared here when the board referred
fhe city of Richmond to the Atlantic

weather. , •
The two basketball games, the ]
circus acts and the free dwee were]

Baptist life of- the state. ( But Dr. j
Poteat is no sectarian—he is a public,
servant, nad in this capacity has i
served in a wide and varying manner

Two Hogs Weighing
Over 1,000 lbs. Killed
P. R. Rand, who lives near Raleigh,

kills a 600-, 700- or even an 800-pound
hog; for it happens every year. But

Presiding Elder
Preaches Here Sunday
Presiding Elder S. A. Cotton, of
VVcldon, preached a very able sermon
at the Methodist church here Sunday
evening, using the well-known text,
"All power is Given Me "
, Mr. Cotton did not mince words in
his sermon but showed that the claims
of Jesus as to His power were fully
justified in the lives of men and their
institution!. Without the power of
the gospel, we would find little that is
good.
The audience was large and ap
preciative.
