and added interest will bo aroused in

fully illustrated lecture on the war in the

When Mr Roberson was in McCook

stereopticon views
The Dean Was Delightful
The recital by Dean Southwick of
Emerson school of oratory Boston in
the opera house Wednesday evening
was a delightful treat The dean associ
ates with his splendid ability the graces
of a most attractive personality and
captures his audience at the scoring line
That the dean is capable of doing the
humorous was well shown in the open
ing minor part of his program when a
number of mirth provoking and other
wise selections were given the boat
race was especially pleasing
Rut the seiious delight of the evening
was his recital of Bulwer Lyttons ro
mantic and poetic dram Richelieu
The Cardinal King Here the artist
has full sway for his cleverness and he
was not disappointing
The Tribune is not enamored of the
average entertainer elocutionist or reci
ter but it would love to be bored by
the delightful dean just as often as he
can come this way
