CASTOR I A
For Infants and Children.
The Kind You Have Always Bought
Was The Performance Of
"A Scrap Of Paper"
On Tuesday Evening-To Be
Given Again Tonight
Never before In Alt. Vernon has an
umnletir play met with such success
as tho performance, "A Scrap of
Paper" given by the members of the
Mt. Vernon Dramatic club In the
Grand Theatre on Tuesday evening.
It wus the fourth production given
under the auspices of the Dramatic
club und It was the universal opin
ion that this was tho best per
formance ever presented by members
of the club.
Those in the cast are to be con
gratulated upon their excellent work
as tho play went as smoothly as a
professional show. Tho public was
well pleased with tho production as
evinced by the hearty applause
Throughout the play.
The story of "A Scrap of Paper" is
told In three acts, but It was In the
last two acts of the performance
where all the actors were' seen to
best advantage on Tuesaay evening.
Perhaps this was due to the fact that
the first effects of stage-fright wort
away after the llrst act, so that the
performers were very much at ease
and most of them very much "at
home" in the last two acts of the pro
Air. Rodney Alorison Jr., as "Pros
per Couramont" and .Miss Rose Sapp
as ".Mile. Suzanne De Husevlllo,"
were easily the stars of the produc
tion. The acting of both was line.
.Miss Sapp was especially well adapt
ed roe the part and all her lines wero
ell given and her acting was equal
to that seen In a professional show.
Miss Loma P. Arndt as "Louise Do
La Claclerre" and Air. Allen Sapp at,
"Anatole" took their respective parts
exceedingly well. Air. George Dar
ter as "Brisemouiiho" was clever. H
gave the show a good( touch of com
edy in the last act when he appeared
as the Intoxicated Proprietor and
Naturalist. The part was not over
doue as Is usually the case with ainn
tilers. All qther.meinbers of the caste de-
