tonight of the farcical comedy sensa
tion "A Friend of the Family." The,
compa.ny, which is an exceptional, .
large and clever one, is appearing
only in the large cities and judging
from the press comments wherever
it has appeared it is one of the fun
niest legitimate comedies that has
toured the west in years. The com
pany which has been engaged to inter
pret the farce are all well known
artists, and- it is claimed they take
advantage of every tunny situation.
The dialogue is of the bright, crispy.
sort, which leeps the audience in a
convulsions of laughter from the rise
of the first curtain until the fall of the
final one. The leading comedienne
is Miss Alice Johnson, a young lady
who will be remembered by her ex
ceedingly clever work with the Fraw
ley stock company three years ago.
Since her last visit through the west
Miss Johnson has been playing in
New York city only. It is expected
that after the contracts already made
have been fulfilled that "A Friend of

BILLINGS WOMAN'S CLUB. a
Enters Upon Study of Second Shakes
At yesterday's meeting of the Wo- 1
man's club two new associate mem- t
bers were elected, Mrs. Hirsch and I
Mrs. Barras. After the regular rou- 3
tine business had ,been transacted, c
the club took up the study of "The
Winter's Tale," of which the first and
part of the second scenes of the first
act were read. Preceding this was I
a paper by Miss Marion Goss on the
introduction of the play.
Mrs. Armstrong was the leader and t
after the reading propounded the i
usual questions to members concern, t
ing the various characters in the play r
met with up to that time. The result- i
ing discussion was animated at times
and throughout highly entertaining as <
well as instructive. Analysis was I
made of Leontes, who was dissected ,
with true feminine regard for his
idiosyncrasies, with particular refer- I
ence to his sudden and unreasonable
jealousy of the queen. "-he other
characters also came in for their share
of attention and some of them were,
perhaps, handled in. a manner that
could not be called exactly compli
mentary, particularly Polixenes, who
was regarded as having transcended
the limits of good taste by his pro
longation of his visit to Ljeontes.
Mrs. James McCormick contributed
a paper on American humorists, se
lecting Washington Irving, the first
American author of note to invade
the field of humor, and Finley Peter
Dunne, the humorist of today, as her
subjects for comparison. 1m her in
imitable manner the lady read ex
tracts from the works of both and
afforded great amusement as she 4uot
ed bits of conversation between "Mr.
