A sensation was caused at Great Boar's Head one morning last week, when it was discovered that the fence standing between the land of George C. Vail of Manchester and the Manchester City Mission property had been torn down during the night by parties unknown. The fence had been a subject of contention and dispute, and its surreptitious removal increased the feelings of discord which have grown over its existence. The cottagers all say they do not know who tore down the fence, but various hints are made. Mr. Vail and others who have summer cottages in the near vicinity opposed the establishment of a fresh air home in their midst when the property was first acquired by the mission. Then came a dispute over the location of the line between the mission property and that of Mr. Vail, and the latter claims that a piazza of the mission building is partly on his land. The fence was erected to separate the grounds of the two properties and to keep the children off the Vail land. It was built of posts and wires. These posts were pitched down an embankment when the fence was demolished last week.
Hampton Beach Casino
After several seasons of musical comedy, opera and vaudeville at Hampton beach casino, the management of this popular summer theatre will offer its patrons a change in the style of entertainment for the week beginning Monday, August 1st, and Joseph J. Flynn's Dramatic Stock company will be seen here for a limited engagement, presenting a number of dramatic successes interpreted by a carefully chosen cast of actors headed by the popular comedian James Kennedy.
Mr. Kennedy is well known and has earned deserved popularity here by his earnest and capable work in past seasons. Graceful, of pleasing personality and with an abundance of magnetism, he has acted and sung his way into the affection of local theatre goers and with this popular comedian at the head of the company, a highly successful engagement here would seem to be assured. The plays selected for the opening week are a strong comedy drama entitled "Why Women Hate Women," which will be the bill for the first three days of the week, afternoon and evening, and for the last three days starting Thursday afternoon, the melodramatic success "The Poisoned Dagger" will be the play. This company comes to the Hampton beach casino after an entire summers engagement last year at Lowell, and an extended engagement just closed at Taunton, Mass., which speaks well for the popularity of the players and augers well for the success of the engagement here.
