Now Believes In Dreams.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , May 22. Special
to The News : That there is nothing
whatever in di cants has been the be
lief of Frank Dellre , a business man
of the little town of Platte , but now It

dream which proved to bo.one of the
moro than ordinary kind.
Last fall he In some manner lost n
diamond while In his store , and a
search at the time failed to reveal the
slightest trace of the missing Jewel.
Since that time he has thought of the
diamond on a number of occasions ,
being greatly puzzled as to what could
have become of It. Doubtless through
thinking of the lost diamond ho a
night or two ago dreamed of the miss
ing gem. In his dream he saw the
lost diamond swept out of his store
and dumped Into a barrel of sweepIngs -
Ings whlcli stood In the yard behind
The dream was of so vivid a char
acter and made such an impression
upon him that he decided to examine
the contents of the barrel. Going
somewhat shamefacedly to the rear
of his store , he dumped the contents
of the barrel upon a clear spot of
ground , and then commenced pushing
the debris aside as he looked for the
missing diamond. After working for
a time he caught the reflection of
something bright , which proved to be
the lost diamond , which had remained
in the barrel since being placed there
last fall soon after It was lost.

Theatrical Season Ends.
The theatrical season of 1908-09
came to a close at the Norfolk Audi
torium with the presentation by the
Burwood Stock company of Omaha ,
of "The Girl From Out Yonder. " The
company was greeted by a crowded
house and the audience was well
pleased with the play and players.
The company , which had made the
acquaintance of the Norfolk theater
going public previously during the sea-
sen , Is capable and well balanced , the
play was nn interesting little love
story with human interest and a bit
of pathos mixed In , and the special
scenery brought for the production
was all that could be desired.
Miss Leone capably filled her role
and Mr. Ingraham played the role of
the pitiful oid man with consistency.
Mr. Gibson , the company's comedian ,
was intensely clever as Ben Cook , the
The theatrical season just closing
has not been highly successful in a
financial way in any portion of the
United States , due to the money panic
of 1907 , more than half of the thea
trical companies that started out , go
ing to the wall before the season had
fairly begun. This has made it ex
tremely difficult to secure good at
tractions. On the whole , however , the
shows that have come to Norfolk
have been above former averages In
point of quality. Among them was
Klein's "The .Lion and the Mouse ,
which was pronounced by many ; ;
the very best attraction that eer
came to Norfolk.
Promise for next year is 'much
brighter than the past year , the re
vival of business prosperity having
already made It apparent that there
will be more good shows on the road.
The Norfolk theater-going public
has given loyal support to the Audi
torium on those attractions which
could be secured for the year just
closed , and the management wishes to
cordially thank one and all for the
liueral patronage and good words ex
tended. The effort of the Auditorium
management Is to constantly secure
better attractions and this can be
done , of course , only through univer
sal co-operation on the part of Nor
folk people. But Norfolk has already
demonstrated pretty well that It will
support high grade attractions and ,
with the theater-goers and the Audi
torium working together In support
ing the better class of shows , the
promise Is bright for the future.
