JIM: The mysterious fem fatales of the Parlor Circle
The following article first hove into my field of vision well over a year ago in the research stage of Early Cinema in Columbia, Kentucky. However, I failed at the time to make note of the edition in which it appeared, and later searches proved futile, and not until this very night (March 27, 2012) did it again come within the range of my dimming eyes. .-JIM
The article appeared in the Wednesday, January 28, 1914 News
They Were Good Lookers
Curiosity was aroused at the Parlor Circle, last Thursday night, when two individuals, dressed becomingly in the latest style, in female attire, entered the hall. Their skirts fit to perfection, indicating that they were cut from the latest fashion blocks and their hats from the most artistic millinery establishment.
They came in unaccompanied, and the manager furnished them prominent seats. Immediately after they were seated all necks creened, and several young men were heard to remark, "I do not know them, but they are good lookers; strangers in town, I guess."
So completely were they disguised that no one knew that the mysterious couple were John Goff and Lucien Hunn until the show was over.(Young Miss, er, Mr. Hunn was a few weeks past his 19th birthday. The other half of the crossdressing duo, Mr. John Goff, may have been the John W. who resided in Green County in 1910; if so, he was about 20 or 21 at the time of the above-described escapade.)
