Emporium Girl as "Barbara Freit
ehie."
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." I

DEATH'S DOINGS.
PANTING.
MRS. KATE NARBV-PANTIXO,
| aged 40 years, eight months and
I sixteen days, died at the family
i home 011 Clear Creek, Saturday,
j April 9th, 1910, of a complication
j of diseases, resulting from a seri
; ous fall she sustained several years
I ago. Her husband, John l'anting,
I died Jan. 12th, 1904, leaving her
j with a family of five children and
j a small farm on Clear Creek. The
j children, all of whom were in at
| tendance at the funeral, which was
j held at St. Mark's church, Mon
! 'lav morning, are Mrs. Leonard,
1 Lawrence, Maud, Floyd and Bfir
ton, aged seven years. In addi
tion to her children to mourn 'her
death, she leaves her mother, Mrs.
Catharine Xarby, two sisters, two
brothers and one half-sister, viz:
John and Geo., Mrs. 11. A. Pant
ing, Emporium; Mrs. E. C.
Knight. Rochester, >i. Y., and
Mrs. C. L. Butler, Emporium.
Deceased made a noble battle
to rear her family and faithfully
assumed the heavy task. She was
a noble, good lady and was re
spected by all. The orphan child
ren can look with pride to the un
selfish example she set them and
the remarkable energy displayed
in their behalf. While their loss
is a heavy one the afllicted ones
should ever remember the words
of good advice from the best
friend they will ever have—their
mother.
The funeral was largely attend
ed and the very able address by the
good pastor, Rev. Father Dow
ney, was upon this occasion one of
his best—full of grand sentiment
and sound truth. The remains
were interred in St. Mark's ceme
tery, in charge of C. W. Rishell,
funeral director.
Deceased carried a certificate in
Gladioli Hive, No. 32, L.(). T.

MACDONALD.
All who knew WILLIAM MAC
DONALD, of Beechwood, who died
on Saturday last in liis 72d year, j
will be pained to hear the sad news.
In apparently good health, he i
visited Emporium on Friday and j
transacted his business in his usual
prompt and honorable manner,
His sudden death is deeply deplor
ed. We always had the most pro- |
found respect for our friend, who j
was often a visitor to our sanctum, j
having for very many years been
one of our most prompt subscribers.
He was an honest man, and that
means much in this world. The
following, from a neighbor, being j
correct we gladly publish it:
"The community of Beeclnvood 1
was shocked on Sunday morning j
to learn that death had again come '
in our midst and removed Win.
MacDouald, an aged and respected
citizen. On Saturday morning,
April 9th, he was stricken with a
slight stroke of paralysis and Dr.
Mullhaupt, of St. Marys, was sum
moned, but gave no hopes of his
recovery. In the evening, lie
suffered another stroke and died
about nine o'clock.
Mr. Mac, Donald was born in
Nova Scotia, March Kith, 1817,
and came to Cameron county early
in his twenties.where lie has resid
ed ever since. He is sin vived by
four sisters and two brotlvr.-* also
seven children. namely: Mrs.
Peter Furguson, Daniel and Cal
vin, of Emporium, Charnes, Wil
liam, Laura and George at home.
The funeral, which was largely
attended, was held at his home <>n
Tuesday afternoon. Rev. Lehman,
of Emporium, officiating. There
were beautiful floral gifts from
friends, among them one from

consistent member,having filled the
office of Treasurer since the organ

In the death of Mr. Mac Donald
his children have lost a kind father
and the people of Beechwood a
good friend and neighbor." M.
Argument Court.
Hon John A. Wykoff, of Sinna
mahoning, came up on Monday to '
assist Judge Laßar in holding
Argument Court. Our genial friend 1
made the the PRESS sanctum A
pleasant visit, of course renewing i
his paper for another year. Little '
business was transacted, owing to ;
the inability of Judge Hall to be
present. The bigamist who has
been confined in the jail for several
months was discharged upon pay-!
inent of a fine of $150.00 and |
agreement to live with his legal j
wife. The sale of the Star Box
Factory, at Sinnamahoning, by
Sheriff J. W. Norris. to A. D.
Gore, was confirmed.

A theatre party, composed of a

The Mock Court Trial.
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.
