Dear littlo hanils, I miss them so!

Dr. and Mrs. Vansant from the

writer" taking for granted that Lieut.
Vnnsant's pnrents had been noti

a clever musician
Miss lone O'Donnell,
the accomplished vio
linist appearing with
the musical comedy
at the Tabb Thanks
giving Day is a master
of that instrument. Miss
O'Donnell is a favorite
in every city; she al
ways opens 'her S0I03
with the classical selec
tions, and finishes with
the ragtime and 'jazz
numbers of the popular
brand. One of her ad
mirers asked Miss
O'Donnell why she did
not just play straight
selections, to which she
replied: "I realize that
some of the past mast
ters of the violin would
turn over in their grave
if they ever heard
by "Pray for the Lights
to go out,"'' but it has
been my experience
that the patrons of the
theater of today want
something with life and
ginger to it, especially
those who do not care
for selections of the
higher class, so I, like
every other entertain
'er, want to please my
audience, and I have
met with quite a bit of
success following high
class opera with rag
time and jazz.
