One of tee best amateur dramatic
.productions erer witnessed was pre

JbHt'a Opera House by the Flagstaff
The drama, "In Mlstonra," ia a
piece that coutain many examples of
that rough and ready good nature and
Honesty that exist only among the
hardy mountain country-folk of 111
sx.ri. There Is also aa elemeut nf
the saelo-draratlc, and fun and pathos
axe admirably luierrnlngled. There Is
o plot to speak of In the play, but
the Interest of the audience Is kept at
the top aotch throughout the perfor
mance by sheer force of good acting
ob the part of the players.
The Dramatlo Circle took upon
themselves a great responsibility in
attempting a production of this char
acter. The usual amatiur organisa
tion would ra'her shirk Individual r
( possibility and give a ahallnw mulo
sJrama, the unfolding of which to an
audience requires but the power of
speech. But not so with the Flagstaff
Dramatlo Circle. In Mizzoui-a"
taxed the powers of the niKtutier to
' the utmost and tliey came out of It
with colors fl) jug am) laurels heaped
upiu them by the ntliiiiriiig audience,
which tilled the house to overflowing.
A stranger wiilnn tint hall, uot know,

unemcumbered by ctm. the slightest

oughly at home in every situation, his
fine elocutionary powers admirably
fitting him for the role.
Mrs. George Babbitt as Mrs. Jo
Vernon, around whose wayward daugh
ter Katb the plot is woven, and who
was manifestly the "head of the
bouse,' though a gentle one, showed
herself to possess a goodly share of
dramatlo talent and the way she as
sumed the character, spoke of excep
tiunal dramatlo ability.
Frauk C. Hochderffw at Jo Vernon,
the blaekbearded wlelder of the ham
mer, tbe influential blaeksmitb, was
typical and realistio la his acting ami
certainly made bis part a wain feature
of tbe play. Putting oa a real tire on

aim was to muke his presence tett on
all occasions. Mr. Kisliuiiliury aa the
Colonel outdid all his previous t8uc
ceHHes and Ills work outkhone even the

a Valuable member of the Circle.

manner that earned the applause of all.
As a dramatic organization the Flag
staff Dramatlo Circle Is far better
than the majority of barnstorming
troupes, and the members show them
selves to be possessed ot at least as
much ability as the players In some of
the higher-class traveling companies.
There are two or three In the Circle
who could hold their own with tbe
best of Ihem.
Tim musical program was conducted
by Mrs. T. A. Bioidlau, pianist, and
