One of the largest audiences of the
season greeted Miaco and his Humpty
Dumpty troupe at . Tucker Hall las:
night. Miaco is one of the be3t panto
mime clowns on the stage, and added to
his former reputation by his clever
acting last night. Incidental to the
play jwcre the skipping rope dance by
Cornelia Carroll, W.Farre. in his ex
pert hat spinning, feats ot jugglery,
&o., Miss Jennie Miaco in some
beautiful songs and dances; Miss
Donna Stickney, in her wonderful acts
on the slack telephone wire. The three
SL Elmos gave some startling and
wonderful acrobatic feats, they being
as good iu their libe as we have ever
seen. We heartily commend Afred
Miaco and his Humpty Dumpty troupe
to all lovers of good acting.
We can. without hesitation, say tha
Dr. Bull Cough Syrup - has given the

length entirely appropriate to jthe occas

It was an interesting and instructive
effort, and was listened to ; with . ' pro.
found attention by the audience. He
spoke in an. cosy, graceful manner1
Without notes of that ancient and hisv
torlo country as he bad seen it while
a resident there as a representative of
the United States government. He
