did aot improve, however, a a matter
of , fact, it appears to have fallea on.

of about $223.., .. . , ,, ; . i -.
' Thisi waa.- a, knock-out' blow, 'aad
Adams was beset with many and varied
difficulties for the next few day.. These
wove, not lessened; when .Miss ,Vetrc,

arrangements by aiean. of which' ih
would be enabled to. make bis depar

had theatrical exerience, so that they

twenty-three dollars iu his pocket. '
n It 4s pbssibie that Adams may start
another show business hurt, and hla re
turn will be greeted with no amall en
thusiasm. Among those who will be
enthusiastic is 'The : voa liamm-Voung

humor la added by the act that an
