"Mr. Colvo, this old gentleman with the lantern in his hand and the bath tub on his back is the well-known Mr.. Diogenes, who has been looking for iou through 12 or 23 centuries." "Mr. Diogenes, this is your honest man." Last evening while Professor Blalct ler, self-proclaimed the greatest of his tribe, was at the White theater turn ing three lately-purchased gentlemen into dogs and piano stools and argu ments against the commission form of government, a little Turk stood in the back of the theater and yelled, "Fake! Fake!" Putt there was no riot: no attempt to quell the disturber. There couldn't have been, for he was none other thlan Albert 'olv'o, pro trietor of the playhouse. Casting thoughts of gate receipts behind him as a devil; he stool be side the door, while Professor Blackler petrified his hired help with that widely-advertised "magic eye," and told the world that his stellar per formance was a fake. It was an event without parallel in Missoula's theatrical history. Dio genes himself could ask no more. A Limited Power. The trouble all started early last e\'ening when Colvo came to the con elueion that Professor Blackler was a false ualarm. To quote Colvo, Blackler tried his mystic arts on three people picked from the audience by the man ager of the theater and failed to make the slightest impression on them. Then he chose three for himself and the way he hypnotized them was hnough to nlmake the mllust skeptical be lieve; in fact, Co\lvo declares, the three men earned their pay. But the old stuff didn't go with the manager. He was wise and told Blackler to beat it. The professor refused, pointing to a contract which calls for a week's en Kagellent. Calls for Police. Early Yesterday evennlg a mystic person calling himself Professor Elack eIr rushed into police headquarters and asked for an officer. He told the chief that Albert Colvo, manager of the theater which was to be distin gulished by the exhihition of Blackler the Great, had made violent threats against him. But he coulln't hynotize the police force. Not a patrolman budged. "You'll have to settle that yourself," Blackler was told. No sooner had llackler gotten safely to the street, as the best-sellers and Pete McDonald would say, than an irate little Turk was in the office. He wanted two policemen. THe told the chief that he had engaged w\hat he supposed to be a perfectly good 4yp notist only to find the wizard's mystic powers limited to a trio of hired hands. Two officers went to the show to investigate. They found the hypno tist bewildering the audience by his control of three men, and t'olv'o mystifying the crowd by standing in the bnack of the hall, crying, "Fake! Fake!" The offiers decided that they could do nothing and left, after seeing the show twice through. But really, Diogenes ought to meet Albert -Colvo. And if amicable relations aren't ar ranged before this evening's perform ance, the show will be a winner, worth three or four times the nickel Mr. Col vo ordinarily charges. --G. P. S.
