Household Help Wanted!
a 4 a There is a famine in household help in mo tof the cities and towns of the state of Wash- vJLjI.
ington, and especially in the city of Seattle, the largest town in the state. The crying demand m£mNm>
for good household help is so general in Seattle that at least 1,000 girls in excess of what are
T—T already employed in the city could be placed in good positions at wages ranging from $25 to
* $30 per month, and in some instances even higher than that, the next day after they reached F y y
the city. THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN is preparing to issue a special edition under the 1 JL
ThJ caption of >.

I tain the pictures of a hundred or more Negro msn and women more or less prominent in the j* J— -*
various localities of the state in which they reside, and through those channels many copies of
v the special will find their way back East, wher3 they will be eagerly read by friends and rela- .

COLORED HELP OBTAINABLE!
The New York Herald qualifies the
Greater Black Patti Troubadours as
"Sissieretta Jones, better known
perhaps as "Black Patti," is the star
of a company of colored performers
this week. Miss Jones is a singer with
a large reputation, and is heralded as
being the greatest of her race. She
has a well cultivated soprano voice of
good range, and there is much natu
ral sweetness in her tones, particular
ly those of her middle and lower regis
ter. She sings quite a number ef se
lections —both classical and otherwise
—each being received with due appre
ciation and roundly applauded.
Among the other features is a farci
cal comedy and a long olio of variety
performances. The musical comedy is
a laughable absurdity entitled "A Roy
al Coon." There is little plot, but this
shortcoming is made up by large
quantities of laughable predicaments,
and a profusion of swell and smartly
dressed musical numbers, the latter
being particularly well rendered by
"Jolly" John Larkins, "The Giant
Premier of Colored Comedians," and
an exceptionally drilled chorus is said
to be the best which has been heard
in a New York theatre this season.
Among the new features in this sea
son's show is a condensed version of
Planquette's "Chimes of Normandy,"
with Black Patti in the famous role of
"Germaine." All the specialties in
"A Royal Coon" are new and up-to
date, and the vaudeville numbers in
clude offerings by Harry and Ethel
Kraton, the wonderful hoop rollers;
"Jolly" John Larkins in "A Royal
Coon" and "Goose Bone Man;" Lizzie
Wallace in "A Coon of Pedigree;" Ma
rie Lacals in "Colleen Bawn;" "Flirt
ing Song," by the Troubadours' Double
Sextette; Al F. Watts in "A Dixie
Boy," and others. •

A feature of the bill this week is the
cake walk in the second act.
Beginning with a matinee next Sun
day the offering will be "The Jolly
Musketeers," an adaptation of Offen
bach's famous comic opera, "The
Grand Duchess." It is a musical com
edy in two acts, which is said to offer
all the principals splendid opportuni
ties to be heard and seen in many
bright and catchy musical numbers,
of which some twenty are introduced.
The comedy parts will be in the
hands of Gus. Mortimer, J. W. Clifford
and Horace Mann, who have demon
strated their ability the past two
weeks. Frances Grey, Gad. Franks,
Sadie Ainsley and Jessie Brown will
also have congenial roles. The cos
tumes will all be new and the usual
light effects will be shown.
Other matinees will be given on
Wednesdays and Saturdays.
