collected around him real talent In
the entertaining line, chief among
which may be mentioned Louise
Wright, whose former aDcurance at
tho Majestic was the occasion for
hearty appreciation uii the part of
the audience. She is exceedingly
clever in sons and dance.
When Al Kldgeway takes the boards
as itu eccentric comedian there are
few in the Iiouho who can resist Ills
. laugh-provoking personality in the

would care to if they could. His work
in "comedy lines has placed him as
one of the peers in his particular

tha show well worth seeing.

clever and pleasing to offer, while
