The initial attraction at the beau

Howurd. Had the rjll of all thc
theatrical offerings touring this sec

management to select from, he could
not have been more fortunate in his
choosing of an opening attraction
Tuneful, sprightly and with a riot of

The audience was by far the largest

in a similar occasion. There were
'ev.- if any vacant seats left in tho
house, and this fact, when lt is taken
'uto consideration that tickets for the

by those fea' men who are responsible

but exceeded the most sanguine ex

The story of '"The Prince of To

to Anderson, though it was 16 years

Flesher stated that be was- bewildered
when he arrived in Anderson yester

those 10 years. "I know of hut enc

Mr .Flesher talked interestingly of
that occasion and of the reception
