One of the most necessar

It is a well known fact that th
man who talks too much seldor
talks wisely. and what he say
has little weight.
The old proverb "think twic

There are two well know

:he Play "Between Two Lives'
A Great Success.
Correspondence of News and Herald.
A furore is being created in our
community by the new play
"Between Two Lives" which
was given at the school last Fri
day evening by local talent. The
interest in this drama was so
genuine that several adjoining'
communities asked for its repro
duction. In accordance it was
given at the Cedar Creek school
house last Monday evening. The.
play deserves the enthusiasm it
is arousing, as it emphasises the
world wide "Back-to the-Farm"
movement. The reason why
boys and girls leave home is
brought out forcibly in the first
act. While there is humor run-:
ning through the entire play,
there is a serious and earnest
purpose underlying the drama.
The truths are brought home by
the actors in a way that could
never be done by a lecturer.
The young people in the E#iy,

row :m2uence of their mother
and the district schooi teacher
who has tried to show her pupils
the glory of country life: the
dignty of tarnung over clerking
n stores: selling medicines over
the counter of a drug store, or
handing out somebody else's
money over the bank counter.
In the last act, the change that
has taken place is brought out
by the old farmer wh:n he says:
"The old farm is doin' glorious.
It looks a miracle, but it ain't.
It's just these boys here's mixed
some brains up in the soil. that

A better selection of characters
could not have been made. Each
actor caught the spirit of the
play and lived the part. J. D.
Griffin acted well the very diffi
cult part of the hero. We> sym

win the reserved, enthusiastic

Miss Perry. A more congenial

Donald and his pretty little wife,
Betty. Castle, as the escaped
convict, made a decided hit with
the audience. Of course the.
man-hater, Abigail .Jones, finally
agreed to take the man, Sam
Snipes. Miss Hamilton and G.
L. Perry starred as the negro
characters in the play. The
audience was kept in a continu
ous roar of laughter by their
quaint sayings and comical ac
tions. Those who have seen the
play express a hope that it may
be given in every community'
of our county.
