GEO, . PRIMROSE'S
(By George Creel)
"MR. PRIMROSE'S MERRY MEN."
HT IS VERY Infrequently the case that itage favorite oarry over their appeal
from one generation to anothor, and there Is nothing more pathetlo than the
M gpeotaole of a veteran player trading upon the popularity of other dayi. it 11
more pleasant, therefore, to reoord the real, genuine succesi of Mr. George
Primrose, than whom no minstrel is older, and who hadneed and equipped In
Mtf(A n lnmr' that the immnrv of man runreth notlo the contrary. Packed
houses ereeted him and bis minstrels ot the Tabor Grand yesterday, and the ap
plause had a spontaneity and vleor that attested merit, and proved the veteran's
continued popularity In a day remote Horn his beginning.
A very remarkable manl Aside from increased attenuation he Is much the same
in appearance as when he and "Billy" West walked ahead of the band countless
years ago, and although his high notes are nothing more tnan aare-aevu attempts,
tiio riotmincr of i ii rntain, lu Inlmltubla Mace and airy charm. Others may make
more noise, exoel in variety of steps, and outdo biui In agility aod ecoentrlcity, but
he stands aloae by vlrtun of a distinctive touch, a certain something that comes
close to artistry.
As tor his minstrel company, it lacks the size of Fields' and the pretense of
Dockstader's, but it is richer in true minstrel appeal, in atmospheric charm, for
even while keeping ubreast with she times, Mr Primrose still retains the note that
was dominant in tbe days ol Kioe and Emerson. His performance is really a min
strel show and not a mere spectacular. Tbe flrsi part is melodious with real durky
afro aaA In n. fmnt rrtw r om very fine slneers and several first class come-
rthmn. Hnvcrnor" Bowen and Joe Dunlew are most amusing and it ebould be
mentloued that their songs and jokes were all new. Aside from acting as Interlo
cutor in impressive fashion, Harry Slevers has a remarkable basso profundo, Frank
Bilcht is a fine baritone, and Boss Harvey and Thomas Weir are very good teno;s
The first part fades into a well-arranged olio in which Mr. Primrose, Mr. Dunlevy,
' Mr. Bowen and the quartet are assistedby a splendid comedy musical act, and a
most amazing male soprano. This Blondell, while dressed as a woman, dispensed
with ail the unwholesome affectations that usually mar such stunts, and confined
hlmaelf to singing In the clearest, strongest soprano poesessed by any man on the
As a setond part, the entire company joined In a singing and dancing couceit
called "Down Home." There was the levee at New Orleans, the boat, the cotton
fields and then the quarters, all intended as an epitome of ante-bellum darkey life
and succeeding much better than the average minrtrel troupe. Some of tbe scenio
effects Introduced were really of great beauty, marking a new mastery of the
Mr. Primrose was compelled to make a speech during the evening, and It was
plain that the applause was like so much wine to him. And as If to brim his cup
of happiness, Robnrt Mantell sat Inja box, and did not allow himself to be behind
tbe gallery in point of generous applause. It was fine to see the veteran minstrel
stealing glances at the great tragedian, and note his satisfaction as he watched Mr.
Maxell's eagle face flash into smllings, that Jovian brow smooth under tbe carets
of a dainty ballard entitled, "Mary Had a Little Lamb, Also Some Peas, a Piece of
Pie and a Cuppa Coffee,"
Taken all In all, a good show, a most pleasing entertainment, an unusually
good value for the money. Here's to you , Mr. Primrose! May yon liye arcund
again once more, and receive the prosperity that Is the reward of your merit and

In an uptown social circle It is a mat
ter of gossip that a certain charming
young woman never lets her mother
out of ear shot because the older
woman's conversational transports
need to be continually checked. She
is rich even for New York, but she
outdoes all the Mrs. Malaprops In
When she returned from Paris last
year some one asked her If she had
seen the tullleries. "Why, certainly
not!" she responded, drawing herself
up majestically. "I've too much sense
to push in where I'm not wanted, and
if the tullleries had wanted us to visit
them they would have called first
They didn't, did they, Carrie?" she
asked, turning to her embarrassed
daughter. The latter explained to her
mother that tbe tullleries was a pal'
ace of the French kings, and that it
was filled with works of art, like tbe
louvre. The mother thereupon re
joined;: "Spakln' of works of art,
you can break up all the rest if you'll
only leave me tbe belladonna and the
dying gladiolus. Did I ever tell you
of the artist my daughter met In Rome?
He went mad over the shape of ber
hand, and nothln' would do but he
should make a bust of It."
The daughter bad one thing to re
Jolce over, however, and that was
that nobody this side of the Atlantic
would be likely to hear of the message
that she had heard her mother send to
a visitor by a servant In a London

WHAT HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
Hired Man Realized That Domestic
Birds Were Weather Indicators,
But Couldn't See Why.
The city man on the houeysuckle
clad porch smoked and listened to the
farm hand's talk. "Weather vanes Is
wind indicators," said- the farm hand,
"but chickens and turkeys by orlnus,
is wind prophets."
"Come off," said the city man.
"Gospel truth," declared the farm
hand., "In a cam, when there ain't
goln' to be no wind, the birds alius
roost on the tree boughs with their
heads alternatin' each way number
one faces east number two west, num
ber three north and so on. That's a
sign of cam. But supposln' there's
goin' to be a strong high wind. Then
they all roost every mother's son on
'em, facln' it. Accordin' as they face,
so you can prophesy the wind will
blow before moraln'.
"I flgger It out," said the farm hand,
"that In a cam the bunch faces dif
ferent ways so as to look out for dan
ger better. But If It's goln' to blow up
In the night, then they face the blow
so's they can best hang on to their
perch. What I can't figure out
though, Is how In the mischief they
smell that wind five or six hours be
fore It's due."
