gr TO GIVE OPERETTA MAY 29
Stephens College Chorus Will Present
The Japanese Girl."
In a bower of natural scenery, amid
flowers and gay Japanese lanterns, the
Stephens College Chorus will present
its operetta, "The Japanese Girl." on
the evening of May 29.
The scenery, however, is not to be
the "best part of the play. There is
the music, both characteristic and
beautiful, and dances, intricate and be
witching. The first act opens with a number
of Japanese girls visiting O Hanu San,
a young Japanese girl, who is about
to celebrate her eighteenth birthday.
Chaya, her servant, is overburdened
by work, and many interesting and
amusing situations arise.
In the second act two American
girls, who are touring Japan with their
governess, are impelled by curiosity
to enter the garden- and while their
governess is sketching they slip away
from her. The Japanese girls return
and resent the intrusion of the gov
erness who has fallen asleep at her
easel. They wake her and pretend
not to understand her explanations.
O Hanu San comes to her rescue. The
complications which arise are work
ed out with quaint humor.
The chorus will be composed of for
ty Japanese girls, and the cast in
cludes the following girls: Misses
Elizabeth Brown, Fern Hobbs, Eula
Bathgate. Zella McChristy. Vera Car
ey. Frances Beebe, Maybellc Calvert.

Delinquent List Now Smallest In His
lory of Columbia.
City Collector Berry W. Jacobs had
remarkable success during the last
week in collecting delinquent taxes.
Practically every account for which
suit had foccn filed was either settled
at the collector's office or by City At
torney George Starrett.
Another list will be given Mr. Star
rett Monday for those whom suit has
been filed against. Mr. Jacobs says
that the delinquent taxes are now
down to the lowest they ever were in
the history of Columbia.
One man sent a check Saturday for
$165 to avoid suit. The net amount
was only $110, but penalties had in
creased the taxes to $163. This
amount covered a property tax of three
years and a personal tax of one year.

NATURE MAKES JAPANESE SILK
Industry Is Pre-eminent Because of
Climate and the People.
The eminence of silk amongst the
industries of Japan is primarily a
matter of natural advantages. The
climate is favorable to the mulberry
and the rearing of the silkworm. The
people are apt at delicate tasks, and
have had a long schooling, for seri
culture and silk weaving have been
well-established employments for
fourteen centuries. These points are.
perhaps, more generally realized than
the fact that since the opening of the
ports anxious thought has been given
by the state to the promotion of this
most Japanese of industries. The
effect has been to make silk and silk
goods the chief Japanese exports, and
to make Japan the largest exporter
of raw silk in the world.
