Miss Irene Blair to Return The many friends of Miss Irene Blair whose talent and art in her chosen work has elicited the ad miration of Washington City, will be pleased to learn that she will reach Tupelo tomorrow for a stay of several months. Miss Blair has been engaged a number of years in teaching rhythm in Chevy-Chase College, Washington, where she has won a most enviable reputation. Speaking of the production of the story of Endymion, the Washing ton Post of April 22nd, has the following to say of Miss Blair's work. "The story of Endymion, a shepherd prince in love with Pheoba, a Greek maid, was in terpreted by the classes in rhythm of Miss Alice Irene Blair at Cun ston Hall, 1906 Florida avenue, north-west, last night before pa trons and friends of the school. The exihibition was really one of rhythmic interpretation. * * * The setting and the Greek costumes of the players, together with a specially selected program of music, which was chosen by Miss Blair for its adapt ability to the story, added con siderably to the effectiveness of the "story dance" which is the description given by the instruc tor. * * * The arrangement of the story and the dance are Miss Blair's original interpreta tions, and the music was chosen for its appropriateness to ths subject.

Negro Killed. Sunday· night on the Hussy place, ten miles east of town, Paul Sampson, a young negro, was shot and instantly killed by Jerry Harris. The negroes had been to preaching and after leav ing the church they got into the difficulty which led to the shoot ing. The Harris negro fired two shots which took effect in Samp son's head near the eye and fore head and resulted in instant death. Harris claims that Samp son attacked him with a brick and knife, and that he shot while running from his assailant. The difficulty arose from atten tions which Sampson was paying to Jerry's sister-in-law. Harris was brought to town and placed in jail. He was taken Tuesday by Deputy Sheriff Hoyle, accompanied by County Attorney Rankin, before Îsquire Reedy at Richmond where the preliminary trial was held.
