THE ST. JOIINSBURY CALEDONIAN, JANUARY 21, 1898.
Came to Ride on the Elevator.-Busi ncss wns quiet on a certain dny, in a cer tnin store, not a thousutid miles from St Johnsbury, when a woman and her daujjhtcr from a neighboring lowr sauntered in and asked for the elevator A tall and oblitrinK clerk, who is not "tie Tator boy," but who is ready to do the honors to strangers, volunteered to show this couple the elevator and assist them in rising to a higher plane. When the three were safely enclosed and the ascent had begun, the tall clerk, with visions of a sale floating in his mind, said, "What floor would you like to stop at r un, was the reply, "no particular floor; we just came in to ride on the elevator." It was perfectly natural that the clerk should think a thought right here; and when he had once more reached the ground floor he promptly charged up his time to "transportation" account and resumed his usual duties. Side Tracked." The attraction at Howe's Opera House, Friday, Jan. 21, will be the sensational comedy drama "Side Tracked" which deals with the funny side of life on the railroad. This play is written to amuse and it never fails to do so. The lending character is a tramp, and to him is accorded a regu lar ovation. He makes each spectator not only laugh, as each familiar aspect ol tramp nature is displayed, but arouses genuine enthusiasm as the heart ol oak is seen beating under the ragged j;icket ol the way-farcr. The play is inter spersed with comedy, sparkling music and pretty girls. Its'sprcial scenery and mechanical efiVcts are all worthy ol special mention. It is bright, breezy mid there is a vim about it that pleases every audi ence. The play was given at the Howe Opera House two years ago and gave great satisfaction.
