A vigorous French counterattack in
"the Vosges enabled them to recapture
all their positions on the summit of

latest officiaf reports from Paris. The
French also claim to have taken a

of repulses of Russian attacks

is said of the operations in Volhynia
or in Galicia.

that such a decision would be
"evidence of gross incompetence somewhere,
for which hardly any punishment
would be too great."

laden with coal and iron by a German
seaplane in the Gulf of Riga- is announced
in a Berlin newspaper.

LAND OF COTTON BLOSSOMS
li\ WJM'HKUI' U A LI tiJtiiLKN j
An Original Play Written by dewberry
Girl Will He Presented in Opera
House October 22,
The Winthrop Daughters in New-;
berry will present in the opera house'
on Friday, October 22, a play entitled J
"Land of Cotton Blossoms." This j
play should especially appeal to New-!
berry people. It was written by a:
Newberry girl, Miss Lillian Kibler, to- j
gether with Miss Posey of Laurens and
.Yiss Bowe of Augusta, her classmates.'
And the music has been composed especially
for the play by Miss Bess Kibler.
The cast will consist of more than ,
100 persons. Tickets will be on sale
next week. The Herald and News today
presents the cast and a synopsis !
of the play.
The scene of the play is laid in a

The Land of Cotton Blossoms, where
the word of the king is law. In the
southern part of the kingdom lives a
peasant girl, Rousolka, who spins cot-!
ton. With Rousolka lives Famor, her
little brother, who prattles of fairies,
and especially of fairies who guarU
over the cotton fields.
Other peasants of the land tediously
seed out the cotton. They are driven
on with their work by the Gnome of
Prvttnn Seed, a sDirit of tenacious en
erg}', who lives in the cotton hamper.
Famine spreads over the northern
part of the kingdom. The king decrees
that the peasants shall cease
their cotton planting until a quicker
way is found to seeding the cotton.
He commands them to work in the
grain fields. The decree comes to this
secluded hamlet at the celebration of
miidsummer's night. Little Famor is
distressed, because he says that the
Fairy of the Cotton Field will die.
Rmisalka nleads with Monjik, her lov
er, to invent a quicker way to seed the
cotton and thus save the cotton fields*
Monjik makes a vow never to celebrate
his wedding feast until he finds a
quicker way. ? |
Famor runs away to tell the Fairy
of the Cotton Field of the king's decree.
The Fairy is deeply grieved because
it is a fairy law that the fairyguards
an unfilled field must die. She
summons- the King of all the Fairies,
who grants her one week longer of life.
That night she goes to bid farewell
to all her familiar haunts. The Gnome
of the Cotton Seed comes out from
