The Senior class of Olean High school presented the above popu lar production, last Friday even ing, under the direction of Miss Myers. The principal character, "Barbara Freitchie," was per sonated by Miss Mildred Douglas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Douglas, formerly residents of this place. Of course we are all proud of tiie great success and hearty en thusiasm accorded the pleasant and talented young lady, more especial ly so on account of her being an Emporium product. The Olean Evening Herald, last Saturday, ; says: "The acting was of a high stand ard, and it was hard to believe that the drama .vas presented by ! amateurs. Barely has a play of such depth and strength been at- ' tempted bv high school students, ! and more rarely has a production j of this class been brought to so j high a degree of perfection. The ! excellent modulation of voice, the j remarkable acting and the depth I of feeling displayed, showed that! time, care and faithful work had ! been expended in preparation, and j for this result, much is due the J training given the cast by Miss i Myers. Beyond question, the star of the j cast was Mildred Douglas, who j enacted the title role. She won j the instant favor of her audience, j and held it from beginning to end. j Though given a number of enthu- i siastic curtain calls, she, for some j reason, failed to respond to them. | Her work was the subject of gene ral commendation, and Miss Don-' glas certainly covered herself with 1 glory as the immortal "Barbara."

Rsgarding the big Mock Court Trial j to be given in the Opera House, un j der the auspices of the Ladies' Aid So- I ciety of First Presbyterian Church, on ; Saturday evening next, would say that j the stage will be laid out as a regular | court room with all the accessories, j and the trial will be conducted in I every respect with all !he gravity of a [ supreme court session. The case will j be handled on the exact lines of legal j proceedure, but for all that will be so arranged that the two hours proceed ings are likely to furnish the biggest bunch of merriment an audience has had in a long time. Of course, all hearts will go out in tearful sympathy for the plaintiff, while as for the defendant, it is enough to say that no one would ever have believed it. The jury is distinguished enough to rivet the attention of an au dience for a whole evening, and are capable of being an entire show them selves. Altogether this Mock Court Trial promises to be one of the events of the season, both in the interest at taching to it and in the crowd that will attend. Eye Specialist. Prof. W. If.
