when he went into the show business.
and wishes to make the following
statement: "A number of Newberry
people will," remember that my first
appearance before the foot-lights was
in this city as slown in an entertain
ment given by the graded school in
the opera house here about 15 years
ago. Since my boyhood days I have
studied the business and when the first
opportunity priesented itself I grasp
ed it. My first real experience-that
is receiving a salary-was at ifairy
land 'theatre in Columbia. Here I
worked for two weeks putting on
monologue and songs. After this en-!
gagement was closed I was prsuaded
by the manager to accept a position
with him as stage manager, where I
remained' for 'sometime, running the
stage and working in negro acts. I
then went to the Little Grand, where
I worked for about six months, acting
in the same capacity as at Fairyland.
When the Grand, one of the most popu
lar a.nd largest vaudeville houses ever
erected in the South, was opened, 1
accepted a position as stage manager
and 'assistant house manager. The'
-manager and myself later opened a
theatrical bodking agency, and this
compelled me to work a great many
valudeville houses when other acts
could not be secured. Later I went
to umter to manage the Lyric thea
tre, then to Raleigh, N. C., at the
Grand, whlere I remained only a short
time. HeeI joined Jno. B. Wills;
SMusical Comedy company, and started
to traveling. I remained with him 1
iquite a long time, but was compelled
for two reasons to return home-one
two and a half and the other four and~
Aa half, both girls. Since then I have
been in the printing business, pro1duc
~ing amateur productions as a side
line. I alwaVs use the best and clean
*est material that can be found. Yes,
I will appear in the college minstrels."
