A GOOD SHOW.
The Princess Stock Co.. the
capable company of actors under
the management of "Ward it
they presented ' The (.'horn.
Lady," with lola Ward in the
leading role. Their specialties
were exceptionally clover, with
new songs. The second night,
"Bill of Cinders," was a roaring
comedy. Ollie James showed
real ability in the lead. Happy
Hulett certainly starred the old
man character, and the work- of
S. K. Camp, as "Brick," showed
his ability as a comedian. "The
Cowboy and the Thief" was a
real western drama, tilled with
live comedy.. The acting of
Ward and .lames showed they
were not new in the business.
