That pleasing, screaming and novel
cyolo farce-comedy, 'The Bicycle Girl,"
with jolly Nellie McHenry as the star,
will bubble up serenely at Boyd's Thea
tor for three performances, on Sunday,
Monday and Tuesday, April 19, 20 and
21. Miss McHenry is well known to
the theatre-goers of this city, and has
been if en here in the past in her com'
edy sucoess, "A Night at the Circus,"
but will make her appearance in a
more laughable skit, "The Bioycle
Girl." It is from the pen of Louis Har
rison, and is desoribed as his funniest
effort. It has more plot than the oon
ventional farce-comedy, and relates to
bicycle life a field of comedy broad
and deep, offering many opportunities
for the introduction of the "new
woman," funny business, original
music, catchy things, pretty danoes,
and specialties. The company this
year is said to be stronger than ever,
and a good company always strives to
make the best of a good play.
Mr. Nat C Goodwin, who is regarded
as one of the foremost comedians of the
day, will come to Boyd's Theatre for
one night and one matinee on April 15.
It is needless to dwell on the merits of
Mr. Goodwin, as his tame for artistic
comedy is world-wide, and the mere
announcement of his coming should be
sufficient guarantee for the most skep
tical to be assured of a rare treat Mr.
Goodwin has been selected to appear as
Sir Lucuis O'Trigger In the all-star
cast of "The Rivals," which will tour
the country with Mr. Joseph Jefferson
at its head, supported byaoomblna
tlon of the most prominent stars of the
Mr. Stuart Robson, the quaintest of
comedians, direct from his successful
run at the N. Y. Garrick Theatre, will
appear in his new and best comedy,
"Mrs. Ponderbury',s Past," at Boyd's
Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April
17 and 18.
Not since the days of "The Hen
rietta" has Mr. Robson found a part so
congenial to his style as the one In
which ha is a w so suooeasf ully touring
the country- At tha mercy of aa up-to-date
wife, Mr. Robton finds hlmaelf ia
some ludicrous positions, to abstract

cloae it second engagement In this city
at Boyd's Theatre Sjnday night after
playing a week to croaded houses.
The attendance Thuraday evening was
something really unexpected, a every
eat every bo, the alales, the chairs
usually ued bv the orchestra were all
filled, while hundreds stood up in the
rear of the houae until the curtain went
down on the lat act The attraction
wa "F-at Lynn," and it was welt ren
dered. Mr. Klrke made aa exoellent
Levlson, so good a one ia fact that the
audience forgot he but represented a
character and bUaed him when he was
abusing the woman he bad duped and
when he was leading her astray. Mrs.
Woodward, as Barbara, Mr, Long, as
Archlba'd, and Miss Caroline Clore, as
Lady Isabel, could not have been ex
celled. Many of those who have at
tended every performance and have
grown accustomed to seaing Mr. Long
assume the role of a villain and Mr.
Klrke that of t he hero, were agreeably
surprised last night when those gen
tlemen exchanged places and ren
dered in a truly artistic man
ner characters so very differ
ent to what they usually delineate.
This city has never seen a better villain
on the stage than Mr. Long, and yet
Mr. Klrke equalled him in a proper
conception of such a character. It is
not putting It too strong to say our peo
ple were exceedingly well pleased with
the work of the Woodward Theatre
Company, and will be pleased to wel
come them at any future time. They
go from here to Council Bluffs.

The committee is confronted with
but one difficulty of any great propor
tion, and that is as to a hall of sufficient
size. The Masonic Temple has been
secured, and will be large enough for
the deliberations of the body of dele
gates, but there is no hall where the
friends of delegates and members of
the order who attend can be accommo
dated. The auditorium would have
settled this had it been built While
the officers of the local lodges fur
nished estimates early in the year of
the number of visitors expected, they
have given up now. From letters re

What C A. Potter Says.
Omaha, Neb., Aug. 31, 1895. The
Howard Medicine Company. Gentle
men; I desire to say to all who feel the
strength of their manhood slowly slip
ping away, whose ambition is at Its
lowest ebb, whose mind is beclouded
and the senses dulled, when you feel
dyspeptic, and lose your 'self-respect
that your blood Is out of order, and all
you need is some of Howard's Vegetone
lilood Powder to tone up your system.
It will act almost instantly upon the
blood; you will feel the-.renewed life
and vigor coursing through your sys
tem; you will feel the old-time grip in
your hands; your mind will be as active
as ever: your friends will observe the
flag of health flying In your face, and
you will feel like a new being. I have
not felt so well for five years as I do
since taking one packageof your Blood
Powder, and I feel as strong nd active
as ever. I weigh 15 pounds more than
ever In my life. The change is so
marked that it is the subject of com
ment when meeting my friends. I
recommend Howard s Vegetone Blood
Powder to be, as I believe, the greatest
blood-purifier on earth.
