FUN MARK THE
-IN HOT TAMALE LAND" HAS ITS
PEEMTER LAST NIGHT IS
From Thursday's Daily.
This city has in the past enjoyed
many very excellent home talent
plays and entertainments, but seldom
has there been so many of the best
of the musical talent of the city as
sembled in one cast as there was in
the musical extravaganza "In Hot
Tamale Land" which was offered at
the Parmele theatre last evening
under the auspices cf the local post
of the American Legion and with the
personal direction of Percy II. Field.
The plot of the play revolved
around the fair daughter of the
American pickle king and her poor
but honest lover, who sought to ful
fill the demands of his sweetheart's
father for wealth, even though it in
volved the slaying of the fiercest bull
in all "Hot Tamale Land." and dur
ing the progress of the play the story
unreels in a series of very amusing
situations as well as very delightful

Harry Smith was clever and amusing

and unlike the famous Heinz of his
tory. Mr. Smith appeared to have
only one pickle. His antipathy to the
chaperone of his daughter, "Miss
Agatha Fidget," played by Mrs. John
T. Lyon, made several of the bright
comedy situations, and both . Mr.
Smith and Mrs. Lyon were very
pleasing in the parts for which they
had been placed. Mr. Smith in his
musical solo. "Ain't Nature Grand,"
was a big hit, being ably assisted by
the handsome and pleasing chorus of
Raymond Cook, who has grown in
the popular favor as a dramatic star
since his appearance here several
months ago in "A Couple of Mil- i
lions," carried one of the principal
masculine roles cf thejmuf-ical cpm
edy. In the role of "Bobfey TVallaee." j
the lover, and the would-be facrifice
to the great bull of Hot Tamale
Land," from which he escaped only
after several trying situations. One
of the most amusing situations of
"Hot Tamale Land." from which he
escaped only after several trying sit
uations. One of the most amusing
situations of the musical comedy
was the mock bull fight in which
Mr. Cook, George F. Dovey and John
T. Lyon participated, the latter gen
tlemen being in the role of the two
friends of "Bobby." Mr. Cook also
carried several of the most beautiful
and difficult musical numbers of the
program in which he won the ap
probation of the entire audience by
his pleasing work. "Rose of My Hart"j
and Ihe beautiful "Toreador's Song"
from "Carmen" were among the most
delightful of the musical comedy.!
and also the number "Goodbye." giv
en as one of the closing selections of!
the play. Mr. Cook and Edna Mar
shall Eaton were heard in one of the '
greatest hits of the entire evening in
their duet "Gypsy Love," and in
which they were given a hearty en
core. It is needless to say that as "Elea
nor." the daughter of the pickle king
who-e love for "Bobby" was beset
with trials and tribulations, Edna
Marshall Eaton gave a very clever
interpretation to the role and with
her beautiful voice added mifch to
the delightful musical numbers. Mrs.
Eaton in her musical numbers. "I'm
Falling in Love with Someone" and
"Will You Remember?" held the
ciwwwi .iiirui.t. w The orchestra for the musical com
audience and in the ensemble num-l . . - - . , . ,
bers her assistance to the voices of
the chorus was noticeable.
Eugene Lister, commander of the
Legion post, as "Don Soda Di Poppo,"
ruler of Hot Tamale Land also per
formed" some of the real love making
of the show, as well as kept the ma
chinery of government running and
arranged the various bull fights for
the entertainment of his subjects.
One of the main characters of the
production was that given to Mrs.
Catherine Dovey Falter, as "Delores."
daughter of Don, and in this role
Mrs. Falter gave a. very artistic pre
sentation of the part, which indicat

ness of the gifted singer. "Beneath
Thy" Window" and "At Dawning."
were the two solo numbers of Mrs.
Falter and in these her sweet voice
was heard at its best. She also gave
a very charming duet with George F.
Dovey in the second part of the mu
sical comedy. "Tell Me Pretty Maid

much to the attractiveness of the of
fering. Mrs. James T. Begley appeared in
the comedy as "Juanita," a shy se
norita. and also gave a very pleasing
sola number. "Senora," at the open
ing of the performance. The work
of Mrs. Begley during the progress
of the play stamped her as being
truly a shy senorita and served to
add to its realism and pleasure.
In the comedy roies. the chief fun
makers were William J. smith, as
"Punko Dora." the walking delegate
of tne bull fighters' union, and Geo.
F. (Sport) Dovey. Mr. Smith also
gave the solo number "La Paloma,"
his rendition of the Mexican national
air being excellent. This was the
first appearance of Mr. Smith before
a Plattsmouth audience and he cer
tainly proved that he has long been
hiding a great deal of dramatic tal
ent and his future ventures into the
dramatic field will be awaited with
interest by the Plattsmouth people.
As the red hot walking delegate
Bill kept the bull fighting game well
stirred up and assisted in preserving
the life of the intrepid matador,
"Bobby," in the last act of the mu
sical comedy. As a soap box orator.
Mr. Smith proted more appealing
than even Emma Goldman, and gave
the bull owners a panning for true.
It is always a real treat to enjoy
the appearance of George Dovey in
any of the home talent plays and in
this musical comedy he was no ex
ception to the rule and added new
laurels to himself a3 an actor and
his clever and original rendition of
the part of a friend of the love lorn
"Bobby" was more than usually
clever. Mr. Dovey in his song hits
was in a class by himself. One of
the big hits was the waltz song.
"Three O'Clock in the Morning," in
which he was supported by the
chorus in pleasing - manner, while
"Down the Old Church Aisle" was
the song hit that took the audience
by storm and in response to the loud
and enthusiastic reception of the
audience, Mr. Dovey and the chorus
responded to a number of encores. In
this song. Master Jimmie Begley and
little Miss Mary Falter made a great
hit as the the tiny bride and groom
who made their appearance during
the .singing of the melody by Mr
Dovey and captivated the entire
audience by their winsomeness. As
a whole this song was probably the
most popular with the audience on
the entire program.
The entire company participated
in two numbers. "In Hot Tamale
Land." and "Sail on the Ship of
As a finale to the evening of rare
entertainment, a pleasing tableau
was given, "War," in which Tom
Walling as a soldier and Miss Agnes
Bajeck .as a Red Cross nurse partici-
pated and "Peace," in which Robert
Walling and Miss Elizabeth Waddick
were the chief figures.
The specialties offered during the
unfolding of the story, that of the
song act of litle Miss Charlotte Field
and William Krecklow in his "Hu
man Frog" stunt, were decidedly
pleasing. Miss Charlotte has an ex
ceptional stage experience for one so
young and her singing was most
charming. Mr. Krecklow in his act
was somewhat out of the ordinary
and showed his expertness in this
line of work.
musicians of the city and "Happy"
Smith and Mrs. Christine Coughlin
as accompanists were very artistic
in their work. The orchestra was
under the direction of W. R. Holly,
violinist, and composed of Dr. A. D.
Caldwell, bass; Dr. J. F Fogarty and
Cyril Kalina. clarinets; E. H. Schul
hof and Jack Ledgway, cornets;
Clarence Ledgway. trombone and C.
C. Burbridge, traps. Their playing
was all that could possibly be asked
by the audience and added much to
the very successful show.

PLEASES GREAT MANY
Array of the Unique and Unusual
Arranged by Ladies Proves
From FrMay'n T'aiiy
The "Curio" exhibition that the
ladies of the Methodist church have
been planning for the past few weeks
was held yesterday Afternoon and
last evening at the church and wr.
one of the most pleasing events of
its kind that has ever been held in
the city and in which the many in
teresting relics and unusual articles
gathered by the ladies was enjoyed
by a large and well pleaxed crowd of
the residents of the city.
The exhibition numbered almost
everything that could hold the in
terest of the visitor and brought
back the memories of the past in
their associations with the years that
have gone by. The list was so large
that to give all would be a task im
possible, but everyone who attended
the two showings fouud something
in the collections that proved a real
delight and treat to them. There waa
a collection of fire arms among which
was a gun carried in the revolution
ary war, newspapers of old dates and
including accounts of the assassina
tion of President Lincoln, the death
of General Grant, and of the Chicago
fire and also there was shown some
crockery that had come through the
great fire and which was one of the
features of the exhibit. Mrs. John
McCarty also had on exhibition an
unusually beautiful quilt that had
been made by her sister. Mrs. Jessie
Bowen thirty years ago and which
had received a prize at that time
from the New Mexico state exhibit
held at Santa Fe. Another of the old
time articles Khown was that of a
Paisley shawl. Numerous articles
such as jewelry, coins, books, bon
nets, etc., coming from Germany.
England. Japan and China, as well
as the United States, made a very
cosmopolitan array of curios. Mr.
J.' V. D. Patch of the Masonic Home,
who has a number of very interest
ing relics, had his collection on ex
hibit at the event.
Not only was the exhibit most in
teresting, but the ladies had arrang
ed a very interesting program for
both the afternoon and evening and
in the opening of the exhibition in
the afternoon. Mrs. Charles G. Bee
son of Springfield. Ohio, who i here
visiting, gave a number of very
pleasing vocal solos. Miss Gladys
Elliott a reading. "Pro I'atria." and
the high school orchestra several of
their very delightful numbers
well as a whistling solo by Miss
Alice Louise Wescott. In the even
