"Olo Olson Endeavors to Pacify a
Large Audience at the Water
man No Excuse for
About aH raw a collection ofmon
strosities as ever graced the stage
got together at the Waterman last
night and waded through four acts
of an alleged play. The title of the
so-called play was "Ole Olson," and
it should have been changed to
read "Dennis Mud." It is abso
lutely the worst collection of
gibberish that ever struggled for
existence. It was so raw that even
the gallery gods got up and roared
And when the gallery will guy a
how it is raw indeed. The com
pany, with the exception of Lutie
Miller, the soubrette, is as raw as
the show. The alleged Norwegian
or Swede, Robert L. Scott, should be
arrested for libeling the dramatic
profession. He cannot act a step in
the road. This noble collection in
cluded an ajleged tramp. His
proper sphere is tramping. It cer
tainly is not acting. If he had been
compelled to saw wood about fifteen
years in tne legislature he might be
"in it." The rest, with the exception
of the soubrette. were about on a
par with these two allegations
They were worse than raw. Lulie
Miller, the soubrette, was clearly
out of place with this company,
She is one o. the best in her line
and made a more than favorable
impression. She should not be
wasting her talents in such com
pan as she now has. She should

Cut loose from a gang of barn
stormers. She is pretty, can sing,
just a little, and has got a nice
little kick. It is to be hoped the
next attraction will have an orches

its orchestra can only play "Annie
Laurie," let us have it. It is prefer

BROWN & BARRETT.
"Men are but children of larger
growth," wrote Dryden, and quoted
by the editor of a piece of paper
called the "Evening News," and he
makes a great stab to substantiate
the above quotation alluding to
some men. Said he: "The truth of
the above assertion is made very
apparent by the childish actions of
some men." Oh, Burton, how
lauerhable! You will observe that
Dryden included all men, and men
only. You will be admitted, pro
vided you consider yourself a man.
But, judging from the construction
and tone of the language which ap
peared in your prosey reprimand
through the columns of your last
issue regarding the "Fiftk Street
Poets," we deem you unsophisti-
cated, full of conceit, bigoted, ego
tistical to an utmost degree. We
have a thorough, and scientific
diagonis of your case and pro
nounce you a pusillanimous
For further information we refer
you to Webster. J we also pro
nounce you incurable, although we
are here to treat cases of your kind
and will prescribe, provided your
constitution will admit of strong
medicine. But before we com
mence treating you we want to im
press upon your mind tnat you
must obey the following instruc
tions: While writing editorials,
prosey poetry, etc., you must omit
all Latin phrases and big words
because of the fact that your afflic
tion is contagious. Those big
words and Latin phrases, "doncher
know," are very trying on your
digestive organs. Before retiring
tane one dose if Vass & Boone's
spring poetry. We prescribe this
because of its working qualities
and believe it will have the desired
effect. As a physic it has no
equal. Your entire system needs
renovating. You will also need
something in the way of a stimulant
and we don't know of anything bet
ter than a good dose of Vass and
Boone's prosey poetry. It cannot
be excelled. It comes well recom
mended and has a world-wide repu
tation. Now, Mr. Burton, you have
made a grand mistake. You have
endorsed an independent platform
regardless of politics, although you
have favored the republican party.
it was very laugnaoie, indeed, "to a
man up a tree" when you came out
and named the winning candidates
the republicans are away ahead by
far and asked us if we would write
some poetry including the defeated
candidates, and at your request
we filled the bill and then
because of the republican defeat
you refused to publish our poems.
Milt Polk and you are both repubs.
and if we owe you anything pre
sent your bills and also bring along
a little cash to square the small
amount you owe us.
