the white tops of the circus that is all
its own. Likewise there is a feeling
that comes over us when the minstrel
comes to town that belongs solely to
the singers, dancers and minstrel men
of the half-circle. The reasou is sim
pie. There is something about a min
strel show that goes under the surface
of things. It is not like the ordinary
iliama that seeks popularity by an ap
peal lo the popular taste of the day,
or the musical comedy that depends on
the beauty of its chorus or the Hash of
its lingerie for its success. The min
strel is a part of the nation. Its char
acters are those of our everyday life.

Its dances are the characteristic danc
es of the Americans. Its jokes are a
part of the humor of the nation, drawn
from the daily occurrences that are
known to all of us. Its songs are those
of the soil, ar.d the loves and hearts
interests of tjur people.. In fact, the
minstrel show is a part of "us. It Is
one of our rational habits. We have
grown to look for its coining. The
love of the minstrels' voice has been
bred in us from tjiir ancestors. In the
middle, ages he was a welcome visitor
to the courts and castles of old Eng
land. In modern days he has grown
to b a necessity. The A I G. Field
grer.tor minstrels of this season is the
modern perfection of (he minstrel.
More lavish in its settings, more up-to-date
and extravagant in its embel
lishments, it comes heralded as the ex
emplification of all that is new and
novel in minstrelsy. At the Illinois
theater tomorrow, matinee and night.
