"Mr. Bob" a Success Financial
ly And Otherwise.
The Grand Opera Housewas crowded
to the guards Tuesday night al the per
formance of "Mr Bob," given by Rich
mond people for the benefit of 1
Pattie A. Clay Infirmary. The receipts
of the evening were over $300, but the
expenses were necessarily heavy and the
net proceeds were considerably cut
down. The ladies who had charge of
the entertainment worked overtime in
making it the success it was and they
are "deserving of hearty congratulations.
Their efforts were spent in a worthy and
laudable cause. "Mr. Bob" is a highly
interesting play and the presentation of
it would have been creditable to people
who have made the stage their sphere.
Mr. Robert Burnam, Jr., impersonated
Phillip Rayson. devotee of the yacht,
and his work was most creditable. His
stage manner is easy and graceful and
his splendid voice could be heard over
the house. As Robert Brown, a much
abused law clerk, Mr. Roscoe Gilmore
Stott, of the Normal faculty, is entillea
to great credit. Evidently he has been
on the stage before and one might well
accuse him of being a professional in
the theatrical world. His was rather a
ludicrous part and he kept the audience
in an uproar. Prof. D. W. Bridges,
superintendent of Caldwell High School,
played the dignified role of Jenkins, the
butler, who objected very seriously to
cats, to which the lady of the house,
Rebecca Luke, was very much enamor
ed. He was exceedingly good. R-ibec-ca
Luke was represented by Mrs. D. L.
Cobb, whose make-up and work was of
a highly creditable nature. Miss Jane
D. Stockton, as Katherine Rogers, Re
becca Luke's niece, was par excellence
Her ease and grace were commented on
by the audience and berefforts were re
warded with liberal applause. Marion
Bryant, "Mr. Bob " was well portrayed
by Miss Martha Burke. She put much
life into her woik and made the char
acter a most interesting one. Of Miss
Julia Higgins, as Patty, "daffy" on dra
matic art, too much cannot be saiJ.
Graceful, easy and "catchy," she tilled
the bill most creditably and acceptably.
There are few amateurs who could have
acted her part so cleverly.
During the evening a number of drills
were given and those who took pari in
them showed that they had been train
ed by a skilled person. Every move
ment was in time and accord with the
music, and there was not a bawble
made even by the little tots, or which
there were 35 or 40. The singing of
Mr. Joseph Keller, dancing of Mr. Frank
Devore and the work of the chorus was
exceedingly clever. Those who took
part in the latter were:
Misses Elizabeth Gormley, EJlen
Walker, Geneva McCarthy, Mary Bol
lin, Ruth Wiggins, Katherine Devore,
Joseph Schlegel, June W. Wiggins, Jos.
Keiler, John Cabell Chenault, Ben Cas
siday. Willie Elder, Frank Devore. -'
The Greek dance by Miss Elizabeth
Chenault, of Lexington, was greatly en
joyed. She is a beautiful girl and her
ease and grace was the subject of much
favoaable comment. During one of her
numbers Miss Laura Bright sang as on
ly one with a sweet voice and practice
The mnsio was one of the many good
features of thJ opening, the orchestra
of seven persons furnishing it. Mncii
time had been spent preparing it for the

compniments on the piano during the
performance and of course they did it
The large crowd was more than plea
