The department of elocution and
oratory at the state university gave a
delightful program in the chapel Thurs
day evening, May 12. In spite of the
threatening weather a well filled house
greeted the performers. Townspeople
as well as students are prompt In ac
cepting an invitation to one of Mrs.
Manning's dramatic recitals. The first
number on the program was a piano
solo, "The Spinning Wheel," by Shnltz.
The rendering of this by Miss Galley
was particularly light and dainty.
Little Sarah Muir made a charming
old lady in her rustling black silk, her
powdered hair and high-backed comb.
She recited "Grandma at the Mas
querade," by Cora Vandermark. Miss
Muir is delightfully at her ease on the
platform, a thing, by the way, uncom
mon among amateurs. Howells
"Mouse Trap" makes an audience for
get cares, their neighbors, even the
weather; they were only conscious of
the fact that mice exist and that wom
en are afraid of them. This little farce
was delightfully funny, as it was pre
sented by R. H. Manly, Marie Pollard,
Jesse Spurk. Phoebe Berard, Annie
Stewart, Alberta Spurk and Jean Tut
tle. The most commendable feature of
the work done by these students of dra
matic art Is Its freedom from any
"staglness." Robert Manly sauntered
around with his hands In his trousers'
pockets. Just as we see him every day
In the hall. An audience has no terrors
for him. The death-bed scene of Dr.
Mcf lure In the "Bonny Briar Bush"
was read by Hugh Walker. Mr. Walker
Is himself a "bonny Scotch laddie" and
entered heartily into the spirit of his
theme. The program closed with an
other farce, "The Fatal Message." by
Bangs. This was a "take-on"' on ama
teurs and their trials and tribulations
were well portrayed.
R. H. Manley, Josephine Lottrldf.
Henry Nlenhels, J. N. Shreve, G. E.
Hager, Sadie Smith, Evallna Rolofson
and Jean Tuttle were In the cast. Rob
ert Manly played the part of Mr. Perk
klns,, who resists the Inroads of the
Thespians, but Mrs. Perkins Miss
Lottridge was an enthusiast and his
objections were speedily overruled.
There Is really considerable dramatic
talent In the university and we are
glad to see it cultivated.
You will be sorry to know that Mr.
G. P. Faucon Is going back to Boston to
live. He is the kind of man thafmakes
warm friends and keeps them. His cul
ture Is of the Boston variety, which,
though it has been ridiculed. Is genuine
and modest. His friends will miss him
very much and they wish him the very
best of fortune.
The very best of everything in thb
drug, stationery and notion line, lowest
prices, at Roy's.
