Eddy Foy Gennett. A good story is told of Eddy Foy, ,who is being featured by the Shu- berts in "The Earl and the Girl," in connection with an agricultural fair in Winchester County, New York, in which County Mr. Foy is a house-hol- ; der and a citizen of no mean impor , tance. Mr. Foy's counsel is consider ', ed very valuable in the arranging of all public functions, and he is invaria i bly named on all committees and head of the committee for the promotion and purity in connection with the ine vitable midway, or in other words, he was to see that the "Bally-Hoo" men or barkers did not attempt to attract attent.on to their various enterprises by leading their prospective mail pa trons to believe that something might be seen on the inside to which only men of maturity and discression would be admitted. It is generally the case with such shows that most of the immorality is in the "Bally-Hoo," not often to the disappointment of the patrons. Now, it was up to Fdd;e to put a stop to this sort of thing, and he succeeded fairly well, except in the case of one rnost persistent show man with whom things were not as prosperous as they might be, but he was one of the kind that never gave up. Though caution ed many times by Foy he lost no op portunity of insinuating to the "ought-to-know-better" elders that something might be seen on the inside warrant ed to shock those who were of a shrinking disposition. At least Foy's patience being exhausted, he had the fellow arrested and brought before the general committee, and he was I hT liilll . -alii t nn' fte-v'. Bli il. 5s "--.-...
