DELIGHTED AUDIEKCE PKESEKT
The most interesting, elaborate and
gorgeous reception of tbe season Tras given
at the Bijou, yesterday afternoon, when
Santa Clans assisted Mother Goose in re
ceiving her numerous family.
jaMother Goose was represented by Betta
iCarnegle, and -was in her usual costume, as
sHeenln all her Dortraits. Santa Clans was
SsSfiverv rav. and seemed anxious to make as
unch noisa in the world as possible; he,

long association are a part of the jolly old
The curtain rolled up at 220 P. St. and to
a very fashionable audience of papas,
mammas, uncles, aunts, and cousins of the
wee 'performers. The familiar "Green
Gravel" was witnessed as the opening num
ber on the programme.
,l MItIng Around Bosie" was the next game
enjoyed by the little fairies, and to the tune
of the orchestra music the little feet pattered
iaround the stage in the most natural man

enjoying a sad case of foot-light frenzy, and
were simply shaKing with excitement and

The Tambourine dance was probably next
in interest to the Cinderella minuet, and
was certainly an unusually pretty dapce,
the costumes were elaborate, and the little
maidens who won great laurels were Mabel
McCord, Marion Chambers, Alice Walton,
Eleanor Painter, Georgia Gormely and
Alice Painter. They responded to an encore
in a truly professional spirit
"Bed Biding Hood" (with Mrs. Joseph
Home and Mrs. Patterson in charge) was a
great success. The cast was a follows:
Margaret Graham, Bed Bidine Hood;
"Willa Forsyth, Mother; John Graff. Wolf;
Tom Jones add Perry Bogers, Woodmen.
A FEROCIOUS BIPED.
'The wolf was as ferocious as a two-legged
animal could be and made quite a wolfy
appearance, though his paws and bead
were both missing at one time and it was
thought it would seriously inconvenience
his majesty, bnt happily they came to light
in time to" frighten Bed Biding Hood in a
most realistic way and give- the young
woodsmen an opportunity of displaying
their bravery. The absorbing interest of
the whole entertainment was centered upon
"Cinderella" and intensely pretty it was.
The costnmes worn were beautiful and defy
description. Cinderella proper was rep
resented by Mary Laughlln and
Kenetb Painter assumed the character
of Prince. The others who took part in tbe
pantomime were: Charles Speer, Mary
Bell, Amy Watson, Agnes Dicken, Charles
Patterson, Alary fainter, Jugene .messier,
Douglas Stewart, Bennie McCord, George
McMurtry, Madeline Laughlin, Uellie
Forsyth, Bebecca Darlington. Alex Cham
bers, Marguerite Singer. Oliver McClin
tock, Harry Bobinson, John Bicketson, Liz
zie Chambers, Dallas Byers and Mabel Mc
Cord. The stately minuet was next danced by
these young folks in & very graceful fash
ion, and the entire audience was sorry when
the clock chimed 12 and Cinderella, with
out any warning, disappeared, leaving the
company in contusion. The last scene rep
resented tbe Prince hunting for the maiden
who could wear the tiny slipper and finally
finding her. Amid great applause was the
curtain lowered and the first entertainment
lor the benefit of the Newsboys' Home concluded.

"Mistress Mary Quite Contrary" was a
very pretty scene, and the perverse little
miss with her garden rake and watering can
was Mary Painter. The Drettv maids, all
in a. row. performed some lovelr figures on
tho staire. but-remained in line at nil timm.
They were dressed in lovely- white mull
Eowns and wore big garden hats, and were
in charge of Mrs. O. D. Thompson and Mrs.

the first scene, when leaving his bachelor

and in the scond scene he had such a seri

His troubles, however, had nnlir firr.r.
when he persuaded a fascinating little mortal
to become his, as is frequently the casein

'her home in the wheelbarrow a serious
breakdown occurred and spilled the little

SUCCESS UNDEE DIFFICULTIES.
Theladies who have had this charitable
enterprise in hand say that bey have had
one dress rehearsal with music, and that they
have never had a rehearsal in the theater.
Taking those fact's into consideration it
must be admitted that the little ones did
nicely, and reflected great credit upon those
who trained them. It is doubtful if ever pret
tier costumes were worn by more beautnui
artists than -were seen yesterday, and they
will repeat the performance to-day at the
same time. It might be suggested that the
orchestra improve the moments between
scenes by rendering some sprightly, pretty
opera selections that would add greatly to
the pleasure of the audience, and redeem
the undesirable reputation they made yes
terday by their necligence.
Tbe descriptive singing of "The Sleeping
Beauty" was by Mrs. Emma Bingler
Wolle, and that of "Little Bed Biding
Hood," by Mrs. Mary Scott. Altogether
tbe Christmas Pantomime deserves liberal
patronage from the Pittsburg people. The
Executive Committee of the enterprise in
cludes Miss Kate McKnigbt, Mrs. J. N.

The Flints Still Remitting Aid to tbe East

The Glass Budget says:
"The Green Glass Blowers will receive
another $1,000 from the Flint officials this
week, to assist them in their Eastern lock
out. This action on the part of the Ameri
can, Flints has greatly encouraged the Green
Bottle Blowers and created a feeling of re

never be changed. The fact that the

The Plain Truth
Is that Hood's SarsapariUa has cured thousands
of people who suffered severely with rheuma
tism. It neutralizes the lactic acid in the blood,
wblcb causes those terrible pains and aches.
and also vitalizes and enriches the blood, thus
preventing a recurrence of the disease. These
facts warrant ns In urging, you. If you sailer
with rheumatism, to try Hood's SarsapariUa.
"Having been troubled with inflammatory
rheumatism for many years, my favorable at
tention was called to Hood's SarsapariUa by an
advertisement of cures it had effected. I have
now used tbree bottles of Hood's SarsapariUa,
and can already testify to beneficial results. I
highly recommend it aS a preat Wood purifier."
