Four Acts With Special Scenery
For Each Orchestra to
Good progress is being made by the
high school seniors in the preparations
for the giving of the drama "Esmer
alda," which the class will present
soon. Rehearsals have been held two and
three times a week for some time past
in the assembly hall at the school
building, Mondays, Tuesday and Fri
days being the regular days for prac
tice. There is now less than two weeks
till the date set for the presentation
of the entertainment and rehearsals
will be held every afternoon and even
ing next week in order that those rep
resenting characters in the play may
thoroughly know their parts.
An IntrrrMtiuic Frrfuriuanrr,
The scenery for the four acts has
been in the hands of the class for
some time; it is set up for every re
hearsal. Practice is under the direc
tion of Mrs. J. E. Clarkson, who is
thoroughly familiar with this line of
work, and, under her instructions the
seniors are obtaining exceptional abil
ity in the histrionic art. From pres
ent appearances, those who will take
in the play can do so with expecta
tions of seeing a very credible and in
esting performance and have their
hopes fully realized.
Cuorrrt by Orchmlrn.
The high school orchestra is plan
ning to give a concert at the high
school building in the early part of
April. The orchestra is composed of
about 15 pupils selected from the high
school classes, all of whom have con
siderable skill on their respective in
struments. Practice has been held
every Wednesday after school hours
during the past winter and the schol
ars can now creditably render several
classical and popular selections. Prac
tice is being carried on under the di
rection of Edwa'rd Bleuer.
The orchestra did its first playing
before an audience last Saturday,
when it gave two numbers at the meet

Today opened this event of great significance to all women of the tri-cities and vicinity, and to dressmakers especially. Spring never before
brought forth such beauty in cloths. Exquisite designs that seem to be the work of a fairy's hand, so delicate, so resplendent are they. Weavers
have worked wonders in these new fabrics! brightened them; lightened them; some you'll hardly recognize by their old name. Thousands and
thousands of yards are here assembled, revealing fashion's latest fancies and representing the looms of the world in a great diversity of weaves
and designs in newest colorings. Exclusiveness, that's apparent everywhere in this exhibition. The Big Boston stands alone; it has a plane of its
own in styles. This exclusiveness has drawn to this store thousands of patrons who want something better, something different. You'll always find
prices lower than elsewhere for equal quality.
