Once upon a time a sweet faced,
black-eyed school marm who was
teaching the young ides how to
shoot, in a district not far from Kim
wood, and this sweet dispencer of
knowledge wanted to come to town
every Friday evening and remain
over Sunday with her people. About
that time in the year there lived a
young gentleman in town who
owned a livery stable, and he sigh
ed for the company of this young
school marm, so he made it a point
to "just happen" by the school
house every Friday evening with a
nice rig and would invite her to
ride to town with him, which she
did. Finally school was out, the
girl departed, the liveryman wrote
sweet missiles to her but received
no reply. He grew desperate and
dunned her for $12 for livery hire,
and in a few days he received a
money order for the amount. The
young man was a lisli. The young
lady paid for her bait.

"A Turkish Bath "
"A Turkish Bath" drew a large
audience at the Auditorium. The
mirth-provoking company were en
thusiastically received, and warmly
applauded again as their gay sal

For real merriment and an eve
ning's entertainment brim full of
fun and wit, without a single objec
tionable feature, nothing could ex
ceed "A Turkish Hath." The wit of
the Irish detective. McGoogle, was
irresistible; and the singing of Mr.
Kckert won for him repeated rounds
of applause. Miss Emma Berg also
charmed all with her sweet voice,
and received repeated encores, to
which she responded most pleas
antly. The duett, "Farewell, Love,"
was epecially well rendered by Miss
Berg a ml Mr.Eckert, who responded
to an encore with a trio, "1 Can't
Believe Her Faithless," assisted by
the clear, melodious tones of Miss
Eckert's alto.
But it was Marie Heath as Little
Dot, the pet of "The Sparrows'
Roost," who won all with her bright
mischief, natural childlike grace
and sweet singing. She was es-
pecialh' delightful in her favorite
song, "Won't You Come Out and
Plaj-r" and responded to an enthu
siastic recall with the old but never
better done, "Listen to My Tale of
Woe." Spokane Chronicle.
