MISS LARKIN READS DIANNA.
THE GENERAL MEETING OF
the Darenport Woman's club held at
Unity hall at 3 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon had an Interesting program
when Miss Anna Irene Larkin, reader,
and Miss Henrlette Weber, pianist, of
Chicago, gave the program of the af
ternoon, presenting Maeterlinck's
"Oriane et Barbe Bleue," or "The
Useless Deliverance," in which the
cld-time tale of Bluebeard's Wives"
is transformed into a poetic version
of the modern struggle for individual
freedom. The scenes are laid In the
palace of Bluebeard and the cast is
composed of Bluebeard, Arlane, the
nurse, and the five other wives. The
argument is presented in "The Arriv
al of Ariane," "The Quest," "The Use
of the Forbidden Key," "The Mys
tery Solved," "The Useless Deliver
ance and " Ariane s Departure. The
r.'.usic is by Dukas. Maeterlinck's
drama with its mysterious theme is
peculiarly adapted to the accompani
ment which the composer has elab
orated as Its Betting and while the
music Is secondary to the dramatic
action of the story. It adds greatly to
the artistic completeness of its pres
entation. Miss Larkin read with her
usual clear understanding and adapta
bility to the play in hand and she was
ably accompanied by Miss Weber.
While in the city Miss Weber Is the
guest of Miss Larkin at her home on j
