One of the most enjoyable and fi
nancially successful entertainments
ever given in Marianna was the pro
duction of the Womanless Wedding
at the high school auditorium on
lust FHiav nighi The idea was en
tirely patriotic, the contracting part
ies being America and England, or
Miss America" and “John Bull."
Mr. M. E. Newbern very capably rep
resented the Statue of Liberty and
announced the wedding guests as
thev approached, ushered in by Mr.
Reid. The idea, while patriotic, was
entirely Ridiculous, all the characters
being represented by men. Mr. Burk
Mann represented America and R. E.
Wild acted the character of John
Bull. The . flower girls and candle
bearers w'ere beautifully represented
by Messrs. Mitchener, Franklin.
Wright and Williams, who, in their
dainty costumes of pink and white,
were received with loud applause.
Perhaps no other member of the
party received more of an ovation
than W. P. Harris, elegantly attired
in black lace, jet trimmed, imperso
nating the mother of the bride. Co
lumbia. The bride’s maids, each rep
resenting one of the allied countries,
were Messrs Robertson. Daggett,
Turner and Benham. In fact, all the
different characters were ably chari
catured. representing different for
eign nations with the war interest
Before the wedding party arrived
quit a delightful musical program
was rendered by Mesdames. Mayo.
Smith and Word, interspersed with
readings by Mrs. H. M. Jackson and
Miss Martha Russ. The Young La
dies’ Club of the Methodist church
deserves much credit for the success
of the entertainment, aad after all
the expenses wrere paid, they had
more than one hundred dollars to
place in the bank.
A most enjoyable affair was the
meeting of the Country Club at the
home of Mrs Chas Warfield at Lexa
last Saturday afternoon, when she
entertained four tables with a bridge
luncheon. Besides the regular mem
bers of the club she had several
ladies from Marvell and Marianna
to enjoy her hospitality. The games
of bridge were delightfully animated
and the club prize was won by Mrs.
Bogan Gist and the guest prize went
to Mrs. McDonald of Marvell. Those
who were invited from here were
Miss N'ena Govan. Mesdames. D. S.
Clark. Brian Frazier and Arthur
* * * *
The Woman's Self Culture Club of
Marianna held its first regular meet
ing of the new club year in the club
rooms on Thursday afternoon of last
week, with Miss Frances Derrick, the
president, presiding. The year’s study
is based on early American history.
The program for the afternoon was
taken from Washington Irving’s
Sketch Book. Mrs. D. S. Clark read
a very interesting paper on the life
of the Knglish. and the discussion of
Irving's friends by Mrs. S. Goldstein
was very instructive. Mrs. D. S.
Clark was chosen delegate to the
State Federation that meets in Fort
Smith the last of the month. Mrs
Dick Ray was elected alternate del
egate. Mrs. W. S McClinteck will
go to the federation as the presi
dent’s appointee.

the co-operation of Mr. Perry, the
wonderful patriotic scenario, "Wo
manhood," which will be shown here

and Friday nights and Friday after-j
noon of next w eek. They hope to;
have extra music, appropriate for the

crowds wherever shown. Tickets will .
be sold next week by the members
of the chapter.
The Marianna Suffrage Club is
planning for a rally on Tuesday of
next week, the 23rd instant, when
they hope to get recruits to their
ranks and renew interest in the club.

played and they hope to have suf
frage buttons for distribution among
those who are in sympathy with the
cause. They have invited Mrs. Cun
ningham of Little Rock to be here
on that day to assist them in this
publicity campaign and hope for
much good to accrue.
Judge and Mrs E. A. McCulloch
and Edgar McCulloch arrived in Ma
rianna Tuesday and will remain here

a large number of other people from
here, will drive to Forrest City to

It is indeed a great pleasure to be
able to report that there seems to
be a greater interest manifested in
our Red Cross work than hereto
fore. The ladies are turning out
some beautiful work, and a greater
amount of work than we have been
doing is now being finished every
day. On Wednesday, October 24, we
are going to have on display at the
city hall some of our hospital gar
ments and supplies, and I trust every
man. woman and child will come in
and look over this display, and see
what (he ladies of Marianna and Lee
county have been doing for the cause
of humanity.

Won't you help us make it 600? The
dues are very small, only $1 per
year. How many times do you throw
away $1 in a year? Do you think of
any place you could spend a dollar
tl.at would give you more real
pleasure than by paying one dollar
to become a Red Cross member, and
do your bit for humanity’s cause?

For years the host and hostess have been
f asking themselves that same question—es
pecially whenever the occasion happens to
be one of those cozy little after-theatre or
“in-betv'een-times” parties. Now, there is
a ready answer—
This distinctively new creation in soft
drinks is sparkling—snappy—delicious. It
is healthful with the wholesomeness of the
choicest cereals — appetizing with the bou
quet and agreeable bitter tang which only
choice hops can impart. It is sure to “hit
the spot” -sure to encounter no prejudices.

Miss Esther Horne of this city,

only son of Mr. and Mrs. J D.
1 Block of Paragould, with his cousin.
John King of Wynne, sailed for
France several months ago. He had
; occasion to write Miss Horne on
some business matters and incident

* France is a very pretty country—
very rolling and no waste lands. The
French people are polite and appre

hard to learn, as there are so many
exceptions and only two genders—no

i of meat, potatoes, rice, bread and
I wine—lots of it. We sleep in our
' ambulances on stretchers,
