Lady Creech. "Glenwood Priory is the

The presentation of "The Elopement
of Ellen" by the cast which played it
in this city will be the topic of conver
sation in Sherrard for many a day, as
the play which was given at the opera
house there last' evening was easily
the brilliant affair of the season just
closed. The play attracted a record
house at the theater, and from all In
dications everyone was thoroughly sat
isfied with the amateur performers
from Rock Island. As a result of the
large audience, and despite the fact
that the expenses were very heavy, a
neat sum was turned over to the Silver
Cross circle of the King's Daughters,
under whose auspices the play was
The play was given with all the- pre
cision and dash which characterized it
when, it was played in this city, and
there were times when the audience
nearly broke up the performance with
their laughter and applause. The cast
was handicapped considerably by the
character of properties which it was
forced to use at the little Sherrard
playhouse, but this fact was r.ot noted
by the spectators. Words of praise for
the work of the different members of
the cast were frequent, and before the
play was over every member of the
company received a generous round of
Dance After IMny.
After the performance the theater
was cleared of its chairs, and an hour
was given over to dancing. At 11:30
the return to this city was commenced,
the party riding in a hack. The roads
were bad, and it was well into the wee
hours of the morning before the ama
teur theatrical troupe reached home af
ter their first barnstorming expedition
Those who went on the trip were Mrs.
Thomas Totten, Miss Florence O'Neil,
Miss Elsa Simon. O. B. Hampton, Will
Trimble, Dr. C. W. Mueller and Ralph
MacManus, members or the cast; Miss
Myra Hear, directress; Mrs. Olive
Wrixon, pianist; Miss Evans of La
Crosse, Hugo Simon. Arthur Mosen
