to find it's way into all

Odd FeUow's Opera House.

I. H. Havlin's popular and talented
Fogg's Ferry Combination will occupy
the Opera House producing for the first
time here C. E. Callahan's romantic and
picturesque Comedy-Drama the latest
New York success and reigning sensation
of the season "Fogg's Ferry" with
the brilliant young vocalist comedienne
Miss Carrie Stuart in her sparkling character
creation and superb rendition of
"Chip" the ferryman's daughter, supported
by a company of rare excellence
and ability and acknowledged metropolitan
reputation. No play recently given
to the dramatic world has achieved in so
short a space of time such deservedly
wide-spread popularity , no star so completely
captivated audiences by her
sprightly and vivacious acting as the
winsome little lady in the character
role of "Chip" (Miss Carrie Stuart,) so
say exchanges. Although "Fogg's Ferry"
is usually associated with such plays
as "My Partner" "The Dainties" and
"M Liss," yet it is only similar to them
in being located in the far "West. It is a
more refined comedy, and dwells more
in the humorous and eccentrie phases of
human nature. It is brimful of charming
bits of humor,-pathos and sentiment,
the characters are clear cut, and well defined
and the plot with exquisite interest
turns upon the career of a little girl
elf whose rugged early training simply
lends a charm to the refined character
which adorns the sequel, and has been
very aptly described by a St. Louis paper
as an "American Fanchon." Don't fail
to see "Fogg's Ferry." Admission 50 cts

light have alternated until death claimed
The Denver News says of him :
"Generosity was a marked trait in his
character. He seemed hardly able to
deny any charitable call. If a friend was
in financial distress he helped him, if it
lay in his power. He was domestic in
his nature and devoted to his family.
He will long be remembered by the first
settlers of the territory as a man of the
strictest fidelity to his business engagements,
and a eenerous neighbor and a
steadfast friend. . '
