OF THE COUNTY Fl
LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC
WAS A SUCCESS
Was Admirably Adopted So as to
Display Anderson's Many
Almost a packed house greeted tilt
first performance of "County Fair," a
farce comedy staged at Anderson then
tro last night by the Anderson lodge ot
Elks for the purpose of raising money
for charity. The attraction was a
splendid success in almost every pa?
Ocular and many of those who wi'
ucssed it expressed the opiuion that
lt was ono of thc best amateur per
formances ever given in thc city. The
second and concluding performance
will be r'ven tonight at the Anderson |
thoatre, with a slight change In thc
program. Tie "County Fair" is
staged by Miss Anr'o Sara Dock, and
the performance last aight proved her
Like many professional perform
ances*, "County Fall" has- a simple
but a most attractive plot, lu fact,
it can scarcely bo called a plot; b'.tt
an arrangement to Include tho baM.
talent In any town. Thc f'rst act, a
little children's act. ls a wonder in lt*
simplicity and beauty, and the at
tractive Anderson children-some
of them tots scarcely lurge enough to
walk-captivated the audience at thc
rise of the curtain-100 of these little
tots sang and danced their little
moon song as if they '".lad been re
hearsed for month;'. In i-uicqlc suc
cession followed thc barn dance at"!
hayseed chorus I Barn dance was ar,
artistic little dance by City little girls
willie thc hayseed chorus was a boys
number finished with a funny stunt of
tumbling and somersaults.
The second "County Fair" act
showed Anderson'? talent in a mix
ture of comedy and dramatic work. Ii
would be difficult to feature all the
"County Fair" folk. Miss Lydia Mc
(Jully as Ulggling Sal, Mrs*. Rosa Mc
Cully as Mary Sprucely, Mrs. T. L
('ely as the widow who Mad juut lost
her fourth husband, Miss Frances
Kelley as the bride, Mr. M. F. Mc
Gee as tho groom, Mr. Janies Craig
aa the Dutch woman and Mr. Welch
as the widower, were all good.
Two special acts were probably
among the best features of the per
formance. TIT.^ first of these wa?
Mr...Whittington as the cycle special
ilst. .His "trlckB" were better t'.ian,
many of, those seen in vaudeville. Mr.
Embrey with lils trick pony was very
good. The little Shetland pony, did
excellently and evidenced training.
Of tho musical numbers the Fluffy
Huff les chorus, led by Mrs. . Thoo
H. Fant, supported by 24 of Ander
son's young people, was excellent und
presented a beautiful picture. This
was ono of the best choruses In the
The Boogey Boo chorus led by Mrs.
H.. H. Harris was exceptionally good
The lights were used witto splendid
effect in this scene, and this song
and dance was one of tho roost en
tertaining on the program.
Mrs. H. H. HarrlB and Mr Wil :h
?lcd tho "High Cost of Loving" chorua
and this -was also a very pleasing
number. The college chorus led by
Miss Noll Bewley was easily one ot
tho best on the program, t'ie .chorus
evidencing much training. Mrs. W.
E. Watson and Mr. Proctor tn a dance
ware good. The Spanish dance by
Misses 'Fretwell, Cross, Hunter anl
Burdlno was alco a good number. The
singing of the quartette composed of
MessrB. Barton, s-.ii th, Hill and Las
siter v/as excellent and was as good
as that of many of the quartettes on
the road today. Mr. and Mrs. H.
B. Fitzgerald in a duct WOTO good
W. W. Dickson as Madame Carlon!
and yn. impersonations was excellent.
The clos lng chorus, thc See Saw
chorqs, Iel by Mrs. Fitzgerald waa
perhaps the best of tue "entire per
formance. . .Hero..beauUfut scenic et
fects ?were produced with excellent
results, tho scene being one that would
do credit to any musical production.
Yesterday ' afternoon.) the dress
parado of those who were to take
part in "County'Flair'' attracted much
attention. Over 30 automobiles car
ried the people over thc principal
st roots of the city.
