Local Actors Make ilt In "Bachelor
11all" Last Friday.
The local talent play "Bachelor
Hall" given .in the opera house last
Friday evening was exceedingly suc
cessful both as to the display of his
trionic talent -and as to the display
of the American mezuma.. An immense
audience gathered to witness the work
of the local artists and the continuous
applause gave proof that it was en
joyable. As heretofore The Advertis
or positively refuses to mention any
particular actors as it is quite a dan
gerous operation. It is safe and pro
per to say, though, that all the parts
were handled right up to snuff. Much
of the success of the play was due to
Miss Fannie Mae Thames and Mrs. II.
S. Blackwell, who -were the leaders in
getting up the play and who super
vised the training of the troupe.
TIhe performance netted the com
pany about ninety dollars. This
amount will be divided among the
four orphanages of the state.
