The association at Arlington was
poorly attended last Saturday night, It
seemed to lack proper management,
Lack of professional interest was also In
evidence. The patrons in this associa

Some of them have been faithful, but
some others have manifested a painful
lack of the proper spirit. This condi

SI Plunkard and hit farmers will be
at the Shaw Thcnter Saturday, March 3.
Si will bring his famous farmers' band
nnd show you city chaps the pride of
Fairview. Si says, "Gosh, him and his
buglers are right In It," and will parade
about noon, rain or shine, no difference,
cause all him and his boys havo got to
do is tuck their trowsers In their boots
and wade in the mud knee deep, "Si"

and amusing street parade,
That accidents are largely responsible
ble for many of the ludicrous sltuutions
one sees portrayed in comedies of the
present day, is generally conceded.
This is particularly true of tho Hnyt
skites. In that masterpiece of that
prince of farce writers, "A Hole in the
Ground," which comes to the Shaw
theatre tonight, Thursday the :8th, the
curtain situation in the second act Is due
wholly to an accident of this nature
The scene represents the lntcrior-of a
railway station In one of the small
towns of Vermont. The bell was
sounded announcing the departure of
the train. Just as the passengers are
about to leave the station, the "stranger"
dressed in his red undershirt, nnd carry
ing the rest of his upper clothing in his
hand. The reason the situation was in
troduced was due to a frightened
plumber. When Hoyt was rehearsing
for the first time "A Hole in the Ground'
he was sitting in front with one of hit
former fellow workers on a Boston news
paper. "How do you wind up this scene
Charlie," asked the journalist. "Wilh
the regulation linale, chorus, but it don't
quite strike me as being strong enough.
What I want is a good strong comedy
climax to bring the curtain down," an
swered Hoyt. At that moment the
chorus assembled, and ns they began
dancing the number, there emerged
through a trap door in the center of the
stage a grimy plumber arrayed in the
conventional plumber makeup except
ng that he wore a red shirt instead of a
jumper. The women screamed and ran
about and the men, including Hoyt and
his friend, were nearly convulsed with
the humor of the situation. The re
hearsal was called off and the plumber
volunteered the following explanation:
He had gone below to change his shirt.
Hearing the noise made by the dancing
chorus he concluded the theatre was
afire, under which condition most men
are not apt to waste much time on the
matter of propriety in dress. Hoyt saw
the point, and applied it dextrously,
