Ridgeway Enjoys a DeUghtful Comedy.
On Thursday night the elite of
Ridgeway were delighted by the per
tormance of "Finnigan's Fort:ac.
The play was produced by the Ridge
way Dramatic Club, which by the
way is a bright aggregation of theatri
For a long time expectation was on
the que vive and great interest had
been awakened in this play, and the
effort of those engaged was fully re
paid by the large audience which
greeted their appearance on Thursday
It was perhaps the largest audience
that has assembled in Ridgeway on
such an occasion for many a day. The
house was crowded and enthusiastic,
and well might they be; the play was
in itself a strong one, and. was in
every respect all that could be desired.
It was~ a good play well rendered.
One seldom has the good fortune to
seo so much good acting among ama
teurs. Taken all in all this rendition
of "Finnigan's Fortune" regect great
redit on the performers and the town.
Mr. McEachern, in the title roll, was
eminently a success. His every word
and gesture showed his thorough ap
preciation and comprehension of the
character he was impersonating. At
times he became pathetic and held his
auditors by the spell of his tart, and
yet tgain he touched the springs of
wit and humor, which brought forth
bursts of applause.
Jake, the kee-or of a first-class
Dutch saloon, was without doubt a
most happy and artistic impersonation,
and Mr. eeorge Moore, in this charac
ter, gave evidence of histrionic talent
of the highest degree. Jake's advent
was from first to last the siga of
mirth and applause.
And now what can we say of pretty
winsome little XEaty that will do even
faint justice to the charming p ortrayal
of this character as acted by
Miss Sarah Coleman? We can only.
say that when she stepped before
the footlights she so won the hearts
of the -anir*--andien that
whn the~ curtain fell on the last act
the whole house, like Patrick, was in
love with the sweat little Datch girl.
Lady Eanna, too, won laurels for
herself, and it will be long before
those who saw Miss Marie Moore in
ths character will forget the thrill of
pleasure they felt whenever she ap
peared. Messrs. A T. Moore as auf
fety, Ed. Boyd as Patrick, R. M.
Bolick as Count de- Morney, sustained
the diferent parts4-n which they were
casted with great ikill' and are de
serving of th'e higaest praise. Eut
when all were so good, if it can be
said that one excelled, it is to Mrs.
Blair the palms belertgs. In the role
of Mrs. Finnigan MErs. Blair gave
evidence of theatrical ability of the
highest order. From the moment the
urtain went up until its fall she
caught and held the sympathy of the
audience. This presentation 6f Mrs.
Blair's was indeed the perfection of
art assisted by beauty. It was diffi
cult for the beholdierto decide whether
to art, beauty, or grace was due to the
sensations of pleasure, wonder and
a-miration which ever and anon took
possession of the mind as we beheld
the fiae performance. Love, anger,
pride and disappointment were each
in turn touched and portrayed by this
gifted performer. Nevet over done,
never under done, but always true to
nature and to art she was.
The play was a fine one well rend
ered and all praise is due to those who
carried it to Euch a successful finish.
The success won in the past should be
an incentive for efforts in the future,
and we hope that "Finnigan's
Fortune" will not be the last of the
entertainments which we will have
the pleasure of witnessing in Ridge
Bobbed the Grave.
A startling incident of which Mr
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue coated, pain contin
ually in back and sides, no appetite
gradally growing weaker day oy day.
Three physicians had given me up.
Fortunately, a friend advised trying
'Electric Bitters,' and to my great joy
and surprise, the first bottle mnade a
decided~ improvement. I contined
their use for three weeks, and am now
a well msn. I know they saved my
life and robbed the grave of anotber
victim." No one should fail to try
them. Only 50 cents per bottle at

Remarkable Rescue. U
Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainfield, sI
Ill., makes the statement, that she el
caught cold, which settled on her Is
lungs: she was treated for a month by tt
her family physician, but grew worse. C
He told her she was a hopeless victim ii
of consumtion and that no medicine
could cure her. Her druggist sang- IC
gested Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption; she bought a bottle and bi
to her delight found herself benefited t(
from first dose. She continued its use
and after taking six bottles, found her
self sound and well; now does her ..

ever was. Free trial bottles of this

HOW TO CATCH A sHEEF.
To catch a sheep, seize with the
right hand by the hind leg above the
hock. The psressure upon the sinew oj
above the hock joint paralyzes the a
leg for a moment, and the hepwill
rarely struggle. The left hand should aj
ten be slipped around the breast,
and the shepherd has perfect centrol
of the heaviest sheep without pulling
in the least upon the wool.
For a enick remedy and one that is
perfectly safe for children let us recoin
mend One Minute Cough Cure. It is
excellent for croup, hoarseness, tick
ling in the throat andicoughs. Mc
