while other tine-tricrl and popular
attractions ride, gracefully on the seas
and waves of success. To attain the
success uiid to continue so long in
good favor of the public an attraction
must possess1 undoubted merit. The
prestige of, "Yon Yonson" and its
claim to much originality-lies, it is

through its exosition of the comedy
traits and the peculiarities of the
Americanized Scandinavian, and also
it is said challenges favor through its
treatment of life and incident in the
pine woods region of northern Min
nesota. A successful play as a rule
represents a blending of the elements
of comedy. love, pathos and realism.
All these elements are s-nld to be lit-
terally. employed, in the construction
of "Yon Yonson." Nelsc Erickson, who
plays the title role, is everywhere
eommendied for his artistic impersona

mentary and is one of the most con
spicuous) successes of the season.
George E. (Jill, one of the owners,
practically adopted "A Little Outcast"
at the start and the result of his in
terest, is evident from the success
the piece has made. Mr. C.ill never
ceased in his persistent invention, his
watchful instinct of comedy und ar

rgotten to strengthen the east
splendidly, nor neglected costuming
and the general beautifying of the en
semble, and the result is highly grati
fying. The story is a fascinating one
of New York city life and carries the
scenes with swift action from exclu
sive mansions to crime haunted hov
els and' a startling tale is told with
thrilling climaxes and unique situa
tions. There is a wealth of gorgeous
scenery, the most prominent stage
pictures being ini views of the Five

A worthy example of such a form of

stranger called at the roonvs where
the business college is now located
and greeted the young men grouped
about the room. He called Mr. Mark
aside, and after asking him if he did
not see something peculiar about him
and was answered in the negative,
again asked the mine question. Mr.
Mark states that the fellow had cloth

of the. sit ranger were mysterious. After
looking Mr. Mark in the face for si.me

a parole from the Minnesota state

stated that he was alone in the world,
