Tho baseball stunt Is by Tar the runniest Norwood has yet put on, and the house was con vulsed with laughter as the six young men coached the base runner3, roasted tho umpire and tried to rat tle the pitcher. Norwood's performances continue to improve, no doubt by reason of his added experience with his subjects. One fact that testifies to his popu larity is that the same people attend the Orpheum night arter night.
