When Wood & Ward presented
their successful stage creation of
"Two Merry Tramps," they sought
to combine all the good points oi
musical and farcial comedy, light and
comic opera burlesque and extrava
ganzas into the one production. They
succeeded so well that "Two Merry
Tramps" was heralded as one of the
musical farce comedies of the season.
The comedy is pure and original, the
songs catchy and the dances surpris
ingly different. The merry musical
melange comes to the Opera House

The Versailles & Sedalia Ry. is
now in full swing since they got their
locomotive in running order, but like
all trunk lines at present it is overrun
with business, having more orders
than it can fill, and will probably
have to order more cars and engines,
and also coal wagons. It looks like
business all right to sec their engine
and train playing crackwhip around
the curves, for that means trains of
coal coming in, but when a fellow
can't get an ounce of it, owing to the
demand being greater than the sup
ply, it don't wrm the house to any
great extent, but it is to be hoped
that the big rush will soon be over
and all their patrons will be fully sup
plied with their splendid coal for the
balance of the winter.
