weather, blizzards sometimes confining
the actors to the shelter, fthe rough
shacks for days at a time. According
to Hart, who directed the production in

absence of horses was not relished by

he a a
Eleanor Swenson as Miss Dee, the
lone lorn critter of the village had a
costume which looked its part. She
was good and was given applause when
she sang her "solo." She was always
looking for money with which to buy
patent medicines and worrying over the
awful condition of this cruel world.
Merald Tollefson as John Jabe Doo
little, the heart smasher of Chowder
ville and Lars Pederson as Sid Roberts,
who yearned for the Great White way,
proved themselves to be some perform
ers, Merald was ever proposing to some
girl but "got in bad" when he answered
an ad of "A blond young woman with a
clinging disposition wishes to meet a
nice1 young man etc."- Lars was always
looking for a Job to make money for
his trip to New York City.
Frank Sather, as Grandpaw Blue, the
oldest Inhabitant looked his part.
had little to say but his make-up com
ing, on the wind-up with his veteran
uniform was a piece of art.
Walter Erickson as Azarlah Figg, the
storekeeper and postmaster of the vill
age, was quite a comedian. Having re
solVed never to marry owing to the high
cost of supporting a woman, was found
to be easily led before the end of the
play, he became the third husband
yof
Mrs. Sarah Ellen Spriggs.
Elmar Broberg as Hink Spinney who
peddled tinware and hardware every
where proved -an interesting character.
He took his part like a veteran. Altho
deeply in love with Evalina Tupper, the
village dressmaker, he was too timid to
propose but one "dark, dark night" these
two popular young people came to an
understanding.
The patriotic finale was splendid. I
was in the nature of a musical tableaux
in which the entire cast, augmented by
the chorus girls, a Red Cross nurse, a
sailor, a "Sammy" "Uncle Sam" and the
"Goddess of Liberty" took part. Miss
Hazel Nelson took the part of the nurse
Roy Erickson the sailor Oscar Hoag
berg, the soldier Eben E. Lawson, Unc
le Sam and Miss Lillie Noren, God
dess of Liberty.
The chorus girls, who appeared sev
eral times in the play, were Ida Sander
son, Minnie R. Nelson, Hazel Nelson,
Helga Berg, Mabel Magnuson and Edith
H. Nelson. Their different costumes
presented some very pretty scenes.

committee
The first scene was main street of
Chowderville, a fishing village on Long
Island Sound, on a busy day. The sec
ond scene was Doollttle's hotel on the
Fourth of July where the wedding of
Rustic Romeo took place.
Miss Hilda Greenfield and Mrs. Orrin
Redfleld certainly came up to all ex -should
pectations in their respective roles of
Evalina Tupper, Belle of Chowderville
and Mrs. Sarah Ellen Spriggs, looking
for a third. Miss Greenfield deserves
credit for the manner in which she
handled her part. A a demure little
maiden, forever sought by Hink Spin
ney, she was great. Mrs. Redfleld had
a great make-up and caused many a
laugh in the audience.
Florence Kielty took the juvenile
lead, which could not have fallen to a
better character, being perfectly natural
at all times.

THIRD LIBERTY
LOAN CAMPAIGN
It Still On TO Raise County's QaoU
of $660,000. GoedRsports.
The big- campaign to put/over Kandi
yohi County's quota'of $860,000 for the
Third Liberty Loan9 is still on with un
abated efforts. Figures of the aggre
gate totals achieved are not available
for publication, but so much is known
that if all the committees do their full
duty and there are no slackers among
the people yet to be seen, the goal will'
be reached.
The first precinct to report its quota
raised early Monday morning was Pen
nock. Half an hour later, Raymond re
ported that its quota off 11,700 had been
exceeded. The Raymond New celebrat
ed with an extra edition, giving the
total as $15,700 at 3:00 p. m. Spicer
Village reported $13,100 raised, which
exceeded its quota. Th first townships
to report the raising of their quotas
were Arctander and Whitefield.
In Willmar City, to which was allotted
one-third of the bounty's quota, a close
canvass is being- made and the solicit
ors are fighting a good fight to make
good. They should have and are re
ceiving the cordial co-operation of ev
erybody in their work.
It will be a great satisfaction to the
patriotic people of the county and city
if we are able to state in our next
week's issue that the goal was won.
