the direction of the king of the Klondike,
a suburb'cf Vtnton. The choruses of
Roatioke belles, N. and W. clerks, priests
who sing Ko-l-wa-na-si serve at Queen
Victoria's wedding, etc.. make merry fun
for the audience. Much of the music is
taken from "1192," "The Idol's F.y;,"and
"Geisha," the last t wooperas nowjmaking
such hits in New York. The parodies
and local hits are immense. The play is
an operatic extravaganza with the em?

operatic and the ex'ravaganza. Queen

AGAIN SERIOUSLY ILL.
It will he remembered that some time
ago Geo. T. Rut ledge, a prominent Odd
Fellow of this city, left here on a visit to
his old home at. Reuovn, Pa. He was
tak'-n seriously id at Harrisburg while
en route and it was reported that, he was
dead. This proved to he a mistake and
he afterwards rallied sufficiently to com?
plete his journey. About thr?.e weeks
ago Mr. Rutledgo started lor Roauoke
and upon reaching Harrisburg on his re
tarn trip was again taken seriouslv ill
and suffered a stroke of paralysis', from
which it is thought he will never recover.
He is in nu unconscious condition and
knows no one at all and his death will be
no surprise to his friends who are at all
familiar.with his condition.
