fflUNG LADES HAVE
Junior Auxiliary of St. Luke's Ten
der Very Pleasant Entertainment
at Public Library Auditorium.
From Wf ilnep'ta v's raitv.
Last evening the little ladies com
prising the Juni'T Auxiliary of the
St. Luke's Episcopal church present
id a very clever and entertaining
playlet at the auditorium of the pub
lic library and the result reflected
great credit upon the little folks tak
ing part. The program consisted of a
delightful farce entitled "A Precious
Pickle" as well as a musical sketch.
"A Yard of Dandelions." and in both
cf these the clever young people dem
onstrated their skill and ability as
entertainers. The stage of the audi
torium had been very artist icallyr
ranged for the occasion and made a
charming setting for the exceptional
ly pleasing entertainments. Owing
to the sudden illness of ?.li.?s Violet
Bt gley, w ho was given one of the im
portant parts in the entertainment,
the leading role was carried by Miss
Helen Clement, and this little lady
gave a very fine rendition of the dif
ferent parts in which she appeared
and as the soioist in the "Yard of
Dandelions" wa., especially pleasing.
Miss Clement wave as a solo number
tue popular rung "Bubbles" which
v.au received with marked approval
by the audience. Miss Thelnia
Kroehler with her lisping song and
clever impersonation of the role of
"Sissie Gabble" was another of the
especially enjoyable features of the
entertainment. Miss Katherine Mc
Mal.cn appeared in the role of
"Jttr.c" end her ability as an actress
lent much force to this role. In the
part of "Mi" Pebcea Peas" Miss
C. E, Wescott's Sons
Ursula llerold was most delightful
while the roles of the city girls on a
vacation was carried out by Hisses
Helen Ltdgway and Dorothy Peters.
Miss Elizabeth Waddick was given
one cf the principal characters in
the farce and here cleverness assisted
greatly in the splendid success scored
by the members of the company. In
the musical sketch "A Yard of Dan
delions" Miss Clement carried the
solo parts in her usual pleasing man
rer and the dancing numbers by the
dandelions, comprising Edith Ledg
way, Yiolet Speck, Genevieve
liatt and Ida Egenberger

The accompanists for the two en
tertainments were Mrs. T. P. Bates
and Mrs. P. II. Fields, and these la
dies at the piano assisted very much
in the success of the occasion.

young ladies for the entertainment
they have had the advantage of the
aid and service of Mrs. W. S. Leete

Mr. Smith. He has just prepared a
fine monument of Barre granite
which was especially ordered from
the quarries at Barre. Vt., and which
