THE MTNISTREIi SHOW,
The minstrel entertainment given
last night by the high school cadets
was a success an unqualified suc
cess. It went far beyond the expec
tations of the most sanguine,, and
to-day you hear nothing but com
plimentary allusions to it. The
audience present was one of the
lanrest that has assembled, at therj
opera house, and if there was one
person present who did not get the
full value of his money, the price of
admission will be returned to him
by applying to the manager.
The curtain rose at 8:30 and dis
played about thirty-five ebony
colored young men, part of whom
were of course "seat-warmers."
John Taffe occupied the interlocu
tor's seat, and Ed. Friend, Cal
Heck, Walker Hainline and Fred
Heck the ends. The first part of
the programme consisted of songs
and jokes; the former of the latest
composition, and without exception
were excellent rendered. The jokes
of the end men were not chestnuts
by any means; they were original
and of purely local application, and
were received with vociferous ap
plause by the audience.
The brightest song ot the even
ing was one composed by Manager
McDonald and entitled "And His
Curly Locks were Hanging down
his Back." The song was dedicated
to Col. Cody and told of his success
with the Wild West Show. .It was
well rendered by Cal Heck-
The act of Fred Hartman, the
drum major, was very cleverly exe
cuted, and he so pleased the audi
ence as to receive an encore.
Part second opened with a topical
song entitled "After While, 'T the
words for which were composed by
J. B. McDoaald and were ot local
application. The solo was well
rendered by Ed Friend The acro
batic feats and acts of contortion
by John Tafre were exceptionally
good for an amateur,, and he won
hearty applause. He also gave the
audience some amusement in the
role of Sandow, the perfect man.
Fred and Cal Seek introduced some
original musical instruments, and
demonstrated that a wood-saw, if
properly handled, could produce
Messrs. Taffe,. Baker and Heck
gave some acrobatic work, and were
by a fascinating drill by
twenty-four of the High School Ca
dets in evening dress. This drill
was the feature of the evening, and
the movements, many of which were
very difficult and intricate, were ex
ecuted with the lihnost precision.
and witnomr tne semoiance ot a
break. It was the best drill ever
given by home talent, and reflected
greatxredit upon, Cipfe'McDonaldV
as well as the boys taking part.
The. programme concluded with a
farce entitled. "The Lincoln. Countv
Relief Bureau" which, as its name
indicates was of local creation, and
somewhat of a take-off on the organ
ization which has been conducted in
this city durinjr the past winter.
The Tribune congratulates man
ager McDonald, and Messrs. War
ner and Taffe for the smooth man
ner in which the entertainment
passed off. They labored under
many difficulties, but by hard work
these were overcome; and they pre
sented an entertainment that could
scarcelv be improved upon. Now
that these gentlemen have ascer
in whom the minstrel talent of the
city lies, the public will naturally
look to them to get up entertain
ments of this class several times a
The lawns about the city are
coming out in fine shape this spring.
It is a generaL remark that North
Platte has more fine-rooking- yards
in proportion to its size than any
other town alongthe Union Pacific.
This is. largely due to the fact that
a very large per cent of our people
own their homes and take pride in
keeping their .premises in good condition.
