that she will be chosen.

The Hi Henry Minstrels last night
filled the Parmele to a comfortable
seating, capacity, and gave the
good audience a very good show for
their money. The show pleased as was
evidenced by the continuous applause
which greeted almost every number
without exception, and the expressions
heard after the performance was over.
The Henry band gave a number of
selections upon the street previous to
the performance and furnished good
music which attracted quite a crowd
and won considerable applause.
Hi Henry himself did not appear and
there was little disappointment as the
comedians Bob McLaughlin and Pat
Crawford did fully as well, if not bet
ter, than he. The first part was not
up to the standard of big minstrels in
the way of stage settings but the
music both band and vocal was good
and served to redeem any shortcomings
in the way of scenic effects. The first
part sparkled with good and catchy
songs cruet among whicn was ine

Crawford and several other melodies.
at Crawford interspersed several local
gags which set the audience wild with
delight and there were a number of
jokes which were new and sparkling

The numbers in the second part near-

good as a general rule. The best or

services were simple in their nature
being conducted by Rev. J. H. Saisbury

bury made a short talk extolling the
many good qualities of the deceased
and paid a tribute to the meekness with
which he bore the suffering of his dis
eases as exemplifying his christian
character and noble life.
There were a number of friends and
relatives of the deceased present at the
services. Among those of his relatives
who attended were his daughters Mrs.

i J. Carpenter's newest olfcring,
"Her First False Step" which will be
sern here for the first time on Saturday
October 10, is a play of exceptional
merit. The story is really a pathetic
one, consistent and true and this alone
has won its success. While there is
many exciting scenes, there is enough
comedy throughout the piece to satisfy
the most exacting audience. The play
is mounted on an elaborate scale, es
pecially in the second act, showing the
interior of the bank and how the rob
bers tunnel their way underground to
rob the bank.

have realized a good price for their al
