Andrew Siark, who was employed by
the street car company on the grading
that is being done at the Watch Tower,
received an electrical shock during the
storm Sntiirdav afternoon . causing him
an unfortunate accident that will proba
bly end in the loss of his life. Mr.
Stark was standing near the track on a
bank, when as a car was passing the
l'ghtuiog struck the trolley, burning out
armature, and the shock which resulted
caused him to roll over the bank, striking
so that his left leg was broken just above
the ankle. He was picked up and placed

which includes many familiar faces of
bis great aggregation as seen here some
s.-asons since. Col. Haverly has surely
had wor'd-wide experience, and knows
how to amuse the public. He seems to
have had his hand upon the public-
amu3f meat pulse and to count its every
hrob, knos ju't what the public wants
and just when to supply that want.
Never since Haverly's last visit here has
there appeared a minstrel organization
worthy the name when compared with
Haverly's Mastodons. To be sure we
have some good minstrel
companies, n weir mem jb
to be measured by the length of
the street parade, the glitter of their tin
helmets, or the tossing of the plumes
thereon. AU this display costs money,
and it stands to reason that where a
manager puts so much money into street
parade costumes he cannot afford to em.
pioy the best talent in the minstrel world.
This Col. Haverly considers of more
worth than parade uniforms; therefore
there was no street parade. The only
Btreet exhibition consisted of a most com
plete concert given by Haverly's ouperb
band at the Harper house at 3 o'clock p.
m., together with a military musket drill,
consisting of marvelous manoeuvres by
the celebrated "Kissell," who has no
rival in this special line.
Among the popular favorites in the
cast are such well known artists as Billy
Rice, E. M. Hall, Harry Constantine,
Charles Sully, Bogert and O'Brien, Del
more and Wilson, A. M. Thatcher, Ar
thur Yule, George Evans, Fred Bamlell,
Backs Winter and others of rare ability.
