HOME TALENT SHOW
"Captain of Plymouth ', Given at
Bell's Opera House Fri
day, Great Success.
The home talent play, "Captain of
Plymouth" given under the auspices
of the Home and School Association at
Bell's Opera House Friday night, was
a complete success. It is a musical
comedy and the lines are bright aud
clever aud the songs catchy aud tune
ful. The house was large and every
one was highly entertained.
All of the members of the cast, ex
cept Rense ilolden, of Franklin, who
took the part of Capt. Miles Standlsh,
were local people and some of them
displayed undoubted histronic .talent.
Including the members of the churu&es
tnere were sixty who took part.
Mrs. Earl R. Slutz was a sweet,
pretty and demure "Priscllla." She
has a beautiful soprano voice, pure,
true and well trained and her soloes
were thoroughly enjoyed. Huggart
McMullen had the part of "John A 1
den" and was very good. The scene
where John Alden carries the proposal
of Capt. Standlsh to Priscllla was In
deed Pretty. The Puritan Home with
the oiu fashioned fire place with Pris
cllla at the spinning wheel was a very
cliarmlng scene. Nothing could have
been prettier tlian Priscllla and John
Alden dancing the stately minuet.
Miss Josephine McUrmlck ideally
fitted the part of "Katonka" the In
dian maiden. She has an exceptionally
beautiful voice and her one solo ellcted
Cue of the hits of the evening was
made by Miss Sara Thompson and the
chorus of Indian maidens. Miss Ruth
Thomas as the flirtatious Puritan maid
was fully np to her part aud sang
The sextette of "Plymouth Daisies',
was an attractive feature which added
greatly to the play. In looks and grace
they could not have been improved
and the Puritan garb which they wore
was most becoming. The dancing and
singing were equally good. The mem
bers of the sextette were, Misses Chris
tine Stevenson, Clarabelle McDermott,
Narka Nelson, Claudine Johnson,
Mary Kinney Reed, Helen Zlnk and
The choruses were well trained and
sang well and the entire performance
went with a vim and go unusual with
home talent entertainments.
Miss Edna Rothgeo, representing the
author of the play, was the director,
and Miss Mary B. Evans was the
accompanist and they deserve a great
deal of credit for the success of the
Real Estate Transfers.

Frank Emmerllng, who has been
spending the summer with relatives
in Germany, returned home Monday.
He had a very' rough voyage home, the
weather being bad and the ship, New
Amsterdam, carrying five hundred
more passengers than it was built to
accommodate. The editor requested
Mr. Emmerllng to furnish an article
for publication on his experiences in
Europe during the war. He said that
he was suffering from a severe cold
and was worn out by his hard voyage,
but gave a half way promise to furnish
an article for next week. If Mr Em
merllng will write an article It is cer
tain to be greatly enjoyed by all our
readers. Being a German by birth
and having many relatives and friends
in that country, Mr. Eramerllng's
feelings are of course pro-German and
he believes that Germany Is right in
the war and will eventually win.

To Remove Prof. Vance as School
The application for a temporary In
junction in the case of J A. B. Srofe
against W. H. Vance and the mem
bers of the Highland county board of
education was heard by Judge Newby
Saturday. Judge Newby took the
matter under advisement.
This suit It will be rembered Is to
oust Mr. Vance from the position of
county school superintendent, It be
ing alleged that he does not possess
the qualifications required by law to
made him eligible. An Injunction
was asked to prohibit him acting In
the capacity and from receiving pay
for his services and a request made
that the contract with him be declar
ed null and void.
The hearing Saturday was on de'
murrer filed to the petition of Prof.
Vance by his attorneys claiming that
Mr. Srofe was not a proper party to
to the suit and that an injunction
proceeding did not He. His attorneys
argued that the proceeding must be
by quo warranto, that is by what war
rant he held the office ; that he was a
public officer and being such any ac
tion questioning his title to office
must be brought by either the prose
cuting attorney or the attorney gen
eral. If he Is a public officer whose
powers and duties are defined by stat
ue and not an administrative officer
under the control and direction of the
board of education, the proceeding
must be by quo warranto.
The case was not heard upon its
merits, the question there at issue be
ing whether Mr. Vance has had two
years of supervision as an instructor.
The attorneys of Mr. Vance are
George L. Garrett and J. Frank Wil
son. John Logan, of Washington C
H., represented Dr. Srofe
Judge Newby will not give his de
cision before Saturday.
