what was peculiar was it seemed to
be apart f his particular duty to
insult ladies w ho passed. His nerve
was railing, lie would walk up to
a lady, tif his hat. and if the lady
attempted to pass him he would
step in fro it of her and ask where
she was jjr in. Some of the yuim;'
ladies thus accosted ran to the Y. M.

freak, but he was not sn i-ilv .iv..i.i.
od. The maxim. "If at lirst vim
tlon t succeed try. try njrain". was
uppt rmos' in his mind, apparent! v.
lie sceniei to have an idea that he
was a masher. The freak, it is since
learned, vas somewhat at a loss to
know where he was. as he Mopped a
yoiinir bty in the park ami asked
him what town this was. When told
it was Kock Island lie remarked.

to be found an interesting el:i of
plot from begiunini: to the end. upon
which is Mrung a varictv of new
songs, solos, duets, dance- and spe
cialities. With all this it forms an
entertainment that more t ban piease
ali theatre goers, and the laughine
qualities are without doubt the
heartiest. The Augusta Chronicle
says of the comedy: "La-t night's
performance of -Little Nugget' was
given to standing room onlv. The
play is a roaring coined v. You
laugh until the tears run dow n y. ur
face. The humor is so clever and so
catchy" that the most morbid mortal
would join iu the genera! merriment.
The singing is good, and the clin
