Miss Lillian Wells, the accomplish

Wells, of this city, played a promi
nent part on the program of
Stricklands," presented at the Ameri
can Acadeny by the students of the
American School of Dramatic Arts
and Empire Theatre Dramatic School
in New York City on February 13th,
which was given nearly a column of
the most favorable criticism in the
Morning Telegraph, from which we
reproduce the following excerpts:
The Stricklands, the Allan mon
house play presented for the first time
on an American stage, may be called
the 'Jest' adapted to British environ
ment, and following the new fashion

AN OPEN LETTER
Feel that we would be derelict in
our duty and that we would not be
serving as we should, the business and
professional interests of Greenwood
and • the Mississippi Delta, were we
not to put before them the present
paper situation as we see it.
10 days ago there was an unexpected
and decided advance on all bonds,fl:*ts.
ledgers, envelopes, tags, etc. In some
instances as high as 25 per cent.
However, the advance in price is
r ealt y a small matter when even at
the advanced prices it is impossible
to get stock in lots of instances. And
the worst of the whole business is
that the situation is growing worse
every day. We have had this brought
to our attention most forcibly during
the past three weeks for the reason
that we have a large number of both

Persons with cracked lips are cautioned to avoid the Greenwood Theatre this week! The management
positively refuses to take the responsibility for either split lips or side aches that come with a vision of
Destiny's child to uplift bootlegging, aided by a chorus of chickens (feathered) so tough they eat dyna
mite, rambling through life on the farm, love scenes in the old cow plot and a career on the rock pile. A
distinctive comedy creation; a triumph over anything you have ever seen before.
