E. A. BARKER,
Knute Erickson and Co. Gave an
Excellent Performance of "The
Man From Sweden."
When Knute called on some of
the prominent Swedes yesterday
plain to be seen that he had the.
ability to entertain. A big, till
Swede with a big smile. This
smile won the hearts of the audi
ence, and Ave have had a number
of burlesque Swedish comedians
our people have lost confidence
in but last night's performance
fully restored it. There is one
real Swede comedian, after all, in
Erickson. He acted with ease
and grace and at all times he was
humorous no matter how serious
the situation was. It is not neces
sary tosay that he was thoroughly
enjoyed by all. Knute was not
the whole show, however. There
were several others, meludmg a
him, so cleverly did he perform.
The child is dramatic, then wo
find him awfully funny. It is
safe to say that Georgie is in a
class by himself and has a splen
did future. Edw\ J. Farrell, the
villian, was painstaking in his
work. He looked well.acted well
and was'surtably adaplx}d~loT the
part cast. H. C. Easton was
liberally applauded in the last
act, when he returned an admir
able soldier, quite a contrast
from the first act. Easton is a
good student. There was an old
maid, too, in love with Carl
(Knute) and such a character, just
like we find down on the farm.
Emmalina caused shrills of laugh
ter when she had her togs on.
MissNitaKoone is well deserving
of mention, her old maid work
was very. good. It did not take
long to like Miss .Jefferson, as
played by Gertrude Chonovoth
she had her troubles but found
many in sympathy with her. Poor
little Emma, it took a long time
for her to make it plain she loved
Karl everything was against her
but all turned out well. Micheal
Murphy was there with his true
Irish heart and when Mike told

wouldn't be with a woman, it
would be with a man, he meant

The Palkiner family played
with bicycle rims and made them
perform as if a lot of trained

ful way. This makes the third
act of this kind here. Last night
was the first real one. This
family are experts and we are
doubtful if they can be equalled.
