On October 1st ten of the young
folks of Mineola presented to a full
house at the Minneola school house
the play entitled, “A Fortunate Ca
lamity,” which was a very clever three
act comedy and was well rendered.
Each and every actor played their part
as only ones with talent can. Their
commedian, Clifford Addison, who
played the part of “Rastus,” an old
negro servant, was a wonder as was
also his wife, “Dina,” who was his
sister. Leo Orr is not only an actor
but an artist. He made all the scenery
used which was equal to some of the
scenery used by our traveling troups.
A great deal of credit must be given
these young folks as they did every
thing in connection with the play
themselves, not even having an ex
perienced one to help them in any
way. As this was their first attempt
at such work they didn’t feel like
charging admission, but had a pie so
cial after the play which brought them
very near $40.00 for their work and
expenses. If more communities would
do likewise this would be a better
world to live in.

Many women think nothing of having

brows moved upward or downward, as
the fancy dictates. This necessitates
a complete removal of the hair and
either a false and forced growth in a
different position or makeup.
One beauty expert, who undertakes
to change the form of a woman’s lips,
has performed many operations. His
latest experiment is to make the upper
lip turn up, giving it an alluring pout.
To do this he stretches a thin hair
from the upper lip to the tip of the
nose. This effect*, naturally, Is limited

Cats and Weather,
Are cats weather prophets? Do their
highly-strung nervous systems respond
to changes in the atmosphere? It Is
an old belief that good weather may
be expected when the cat washes her
self, but bad when she licks her coat
against the grain, or washes herself
over the ears, or sits with her tail to
the fire. In superstitious days pussie’s
response to a coming change in the
weather was thought to mean that she
had some control over it. A confusion
of cause with effect. So sailors were
afraid to provoke a cat; in fact they
did not like a cat on board ship at
all. A frisky cat made them quote
the saying: "A cat has a gale of
wind in her tall.” The way to raise
a gale was to throw a cat overboard.
Ruffles on a calm surface from a ris
ing wind are still called “cats’ paws ”
in some parts or mis *iauu a _
