The Merry Cyclers.
The local talent of this village has
again demonstrated that it can give an
entertainment that will not only draw a
large andience to Music hall but will
also send everybody home more than
pleased and eager to come again. It re
quired 60 performers to present the opera,
"The Merry Cyclers," or "Love the
Golden Key." "Rehearsals commenced
two or three months ago under the. di
rection t.i Homer Wilson, and that each
member attended them regularly and did
good work while there is proved by the
way the performance went off. Mr, Wil
son is an efficient director. He drilled
the chorns in a most thorough manner

be used by the Village Improvement so

"The Merry Cyclers" is anoperaintwo
parts. Leander, a wealthy gentleman,
is iu love with the Queen of the Cyclers,
but, being astrongopponentof bicycling,
his attentions are received with disgust
In his disappointment he resolves to
learn to ride the wheel, becomes a cham
pion bicyclist and then wins the love of
the queen. Frederick, a champion cycler,
is in love with Beatrice, a society belle,
but her high social position, is, in his
opinion, an obstacle not to be easily re
moved. But Beatrice is badlv in
love with Frederick and in order to bring
affairs to a climax as soon as possible de
termines to become a cycler. In a short
time she become s a grucelul riiler. Fred
erick, discovering that his course is not
altogether hopeless, offers himself and is
In the meantime there is a good deal of
trouble between Peggie, a servant girl,
and Spick, a servant boy. They are in
love with each other. . But Peggie dis
covers Spick teaching Beatrice to ride
the wheel, thinks they are more affection
ate in the occupation than is necessary,
sheds numerous tears and decides to hate
Spick forevermore. Just then Frederick
appears on the scene, finds out thwt Peg
gie wants to ride a bicycle and makes a
bargain with her. He is to teach her to
ride and sue is to discover if possible
what Beatrice thinks of him or if she is
engaged to anybody else. Peggie now
in a very pretty manner makes up' her
mind that "Spick is not the onlv pebble
on the beach" and takes her first bicycle
lesson. Spick appears unseen to rider
and instructor and behind Frederick's
back threatens: him ;with. annihilation.
In a subsequent meeting Spick and Peg
gie call each ether 'horrible names, declare
they bnte'eacU.btllcr arid for a time be

explaim matters. This brings Peggie
into his arms, when he slips a diamond

Miss DeMuth appeared with her bicycle
prettily trimmed with flowers. Her bi
cycle costumes were elegant, the first
being cadet blue trimmed with black.
The second suit was of purple velvet
trimmed with ei t braid, bhe wore a
crown of flowers in which a diamond
pin sparkled brilliantly. She did her
part well and looked charming. Miss
Eaton first appeared in a very pretty
dress of Nile green silk with trimmings
ot Dink olush chiffon and pink silk ribbons.
She wore a large white palmetto hat
trimmed with flowers. It was in this
costume that she took her first lesson
in bicycling ot Spick, and she took a fall
in so' natural a manner and gave a
scream in so perlectly a eirlisb fashion
that many believed the fall was purely
accidental. She next appeared as an
exoert rider in a pretty bicycle costume
of white and gilt. Miss Eaton's singing
was one of the featuresol theevemngand
her acting was nicely done. Mrs. Mor
rison first wore a servant girl's costume,
consistingof short pink skirt, white mus
lin waist and blue velvet bodice. In the
last uart of the play she appeared in a
black bicycle suit. Mrs. Morrison was
one of the best ' actors in, the caste,
ber love scenes with Spick being
earned out in a fascinating manner.
The difficult part of Spick, taken by Miss
Clara Stern, came as near being the star
part as anything. the first appeared in
a vouner man'ssummer suit of crash, and
next in a young man's bicycle suit. She
was a SDlendid looking boy and made
the oart as natural aslile. It was worth
the Drice of admission, a prominent Lyn
don young man said, to see ber put her
hands in her Dockets. ane is a natural
actor,.. a- good singer, and she did her
part in a manner that won. praise from
everv one present. The young ladies in
the cvcling couples were dressed in blue
and tan skirts, white shirt waists, blue
iackets and caps to match. Their bi
evelea were all nicely trimmed. The men
were in regulation bicycle suits. The
funnv thinn ol the evenine were the city
councllmen, and the funniest of these wtre
G. E. Gookin and a. W. Hutcmns
Gookih was a typical looking red-headed
Irishman with a suit seven sizes too large
and white gaiteis. He made things in
terestingat one end ot the stage while
on the other end E. W. Hutchins, in a
make up that would do credit to a pro
fessional actor, did the same. Hutchins
was lunnv and still verv dignified. His
bar-room nose, aldermanic Iront and
shirt stud as big as a man's fist, coupled
with the rest ol his make-up, were caicu
lated to catch the eveot the audience and
they did. The shirt stud looked very
much like the stopper to a largecut-glass
bottle. Mrs. A. L. rinney in a dress oi
the stvle'of 100 or more years ago
thought '.'the goings on of these bicycle
peop'e was too bad," and in this senti
ment she was seconded by Miss Miller as
Miss Prudence Perkins This scene, with
the assistance of R. A Child, Miss Beryl
Aver. Mrs. B. H. Pierce and R. M. Howe
was well done and a funny feature. The
song by Lora Watchie. the little girl
seeking work, was nicely rendered, as
was also the song by the little dinner-
Dail eirls. . The solos by M. I. Lvster
were well rendered, showing a voice of
good quality. H. F. Balch did his part
well. K. A Child is a good actor and in
his oart of "Softskull" marie consider
able lun. T. E. Neagle did his part well
and in the solo as Mr. Timothy receiving
an encore, me gins ot tne cnorns were
dressed in short black skirts trimmed
with red. white shirt waists, red tickets
and caps to match. There was a chorus
of laborers working on the city boule
vard. The parts were all well taken and
it was a remarkably good entertainment
for home talent.
