JOHN S. ADAIR, Sec'y.
Sucker's First Visit to a Theater
' Well, I've been thar," said tt Sucker
to his crony.
"Whar, down to Sent Louis?" in
rpi'u'ed J irn. , , .
n, no "What else," was tho ; ans
wtr;iid I've seed somcol'thodurn. test
things you've ever heard on in all tho
hull animal creation. "J
Well, what wur they like?" inquired
'O. all sorts of Joins mixed up sorter
everyway, out uic thing that just talc
me straight war r.eoin' a flying woman.
Al ter tho tlatboat war hitched, I sot
lookin' around, and pooty soon I seed
on big boss bills stuck agin houses
that it feller named Dan Soos war a
goin' to cut up some of the tallcstkind
ofshiiulys. I war nattcrly bound to
find out what it war like, sol axod a
feller roadin' it and he laughed ho
said it war the the-a-tre. Si s 1, that
ar u show, ain't it? and, said ho, it ar,
and it ain't no circus show, nuther,
but all sorts of handsomo show, held
in.a place us big as our county seat
court house.' 1 jest made up my mind
I'd go ten cents straight. I found out
whar they kept it, and up I goes, but
tluir they told mo tho lowest notch war
a cool quarter that staggered me, but
I gin it. Koot or dio when you're in
for it, sos I, so uii I goes' the alflred'st
lot of stairs I thought arter tt spell
I'd como out sotnewhar neer the inoon,
hut, by truwdin n spell, 1 got up whar
lot of folks wur. It looked to me
liko a moetiu' with throe galleries, lit
up liko all out of doors in daylight.
A lot of fellers Addled away a spell . by
thenisclves'but cuss me if I could see
whar that fo I for, Han Soos, war, anil
jest as I wur going to ask a chap whav
the show war, up rolled the hull sido
of tlpv house right nfore nie; and out
sliditgulon her tip toes, whirlih'
about liko as if she Couldn't keep down
to the ycarlh. Tho way sho handled
her piiis jest sot ino roarin' it beat
Mary Sellers all holler, and she nin't
slow. I axed a feller next to me who
sho wur, and I'll swar ef ho didn't say
it wur Dan Soos! which instead of be
ing a man's name, wur French for a
dancin' woman. I didn't notico at first,
but arter & 6pell, I seed tho reason she
couldn't keep from jumpin' it made
my har kind o' rise sho wur not only
angel lookin' erittur, but. Jim, you
kin believe it or not, boss fiy, I'll de
clare sho hal wings!" i
"Here," ses Jim, "you can take my
hat." - it' . '
"I knowd nobody would believe me,"
said tho Sucker. "I jos' knowsd it, but

A couple of tamo wolves havo been
objects of curiosity in a yard on Mul-
oorry street, lor a tow days past. They
aro very tamo so tamo that they are
"nicest pluy -things in tho world." Ou
katuriluy it gentleman went down to
sco them, and tho lady of tho house re
marked to bun that they were very
tame. "Just see here," said she, and
sho fondled them as if they were inno
cent little babes. "You putyour bands
upon them, and sco how tamo they
are," sho invitingly said to the gent.
Of courso ho would, but, as ho np
proachod, four rows of teeth admon
ished him to keep a safe distance. At
this, the woman assured him it -was
only a playfuf demonstration, and, to
show him how exceedingly well tamed
they were, sho entered tho house and
returned with threolittle kittens, which
sho placed beforo tho wolves. Then
she engaged in further conversation
with the gent, and, soon aftor, both
hearing a taint squeak, turned around
just in timo to soo tho tail of kitten
