the members of Independent Fire
[Company, .No -2, and their lady
i friends, was given last Saturday
I night at Owensville. about twelve
[miles below Annapolis As the title
!of the play implies, they made good,
jus the entire performance went
j through without a hitch, and the cast
received an enthusiastic applause
from the audience which packed the
! hall.
It would he ditiieult to select any
individual for special mention, as
every member of the cast did their
part splendidly. Perhaps, though
special mention should be made of
little Miss Knadler a diminutive Miss,
whose splendid acting in the role of
cabaret dancer in the second act made
.quite a hit.
The play, written by Mr. Harry F
Rphraim and Miss Emma Engle, of
Annapolis, centers around the Lowns
dale Seminary in Florida, where May
Tr maine and Dot Alexander are stu
dents, while Bruce Templeton and
Jack Duane are attending the Lowns
dale Academy. Bruce is in love with
Dot. and Jack is paying marked at
tention to May, whose father, Martin

as to the period beyond July oyer
, which tho advances would auply.was

men to re-eniist because of lucrative
positions available in commercial
shipping prompted the decisions,

“THE OTHER WISE MAN"

Rendition Gf Dr. Van Dyke’s
Story By Mrs. Clements
PLEASES CONGREGATION
Regular church services were dis
pensed with at the Presbyterian
Church last evening, and in their place
was substituted a dramatic reading uf
"The Other Wise Man.” by Dr Henry
Van Dyke. The reading w.:s delivered
.by Mrs. G. R Clements, uni all of the
large audience th t hi-:>r I he excellent
rendition of this masterpiece we, -
highly pleased with the manner of the
speaker and with her efitctivene-- of
, style.
Written, as it is. in the stuo:i*b, nice
ly-fitted words for which Dr. Van
. Dyke is fa::;.' is, the story w. > ;• > L -
smoothly read by Mrs. Clements,
whose reputation as a reader is wide
spread in th > eiid-We- 1 rn States.
Every word was so perfectly toned a
to delight the most critical hearer, and
Mrs. Clemen’ •’ delivery was it - if n
interpret?! ion of he story, for she h
the rare, combination of a rich voice
for tea img. coupled with an appret ia
'i< n for the effect product i by certain
r.bbalancings of inflection. Equal
y. ■: ■(•; o)j in delivery was to be found
in the highly dramatic parts of thv
reading, as in the sentences of quio,
. 'notion that trailed o‘V into little more
than whispers.
Mrs. Clements is a graduate of the
behind Powers School of the Spoken
Word. Boston. She is the wife ot
Ptofess.or G. R. Clements, of the De
p rtmenl ot Mathematics at the Naval
Academy.
Expression of appreciation of the ar
tistic ability of Mrs. Clements is gen
eral. as well as the hope that the pub
lic may again be favored by her with
similar readings.

Yesterday afternoon’s meeting at 'Jf

much interest. There were people.
’! present of all ages and sizes, alert
i amused and interested As these Sun
day afternoon meetings become known
it is assured the place will hardly hold
the people who will come to this.
To hear Miss Leonard read one of
those wonderful “Just. So Sore*

which she started, this place marked

_ One who heard Mrs. Burwell sing in
perfect voice and endearing manner
the “Mammy Song" might easily find
herself falling into that delicious semi
consciousness induced by a crooning

When this community realizes the
I things that have come to pass here
