The appearance of a minstrel organiza
tion is now so rare a theatrical event that
by striking contrast with the past. It
forcibly recalls to the minds of all old
theater-goers the time when similar
troupes were counted by the tens where
they now only figure in the units. The
burnt cork artist is distinctly an Ameri
can product, and with more or less prom
inence he has been in evidence on the
stage for over three-quarters of a cen
tnry. As early as 1815 negro Imperson
ations were given In connection with
melodrama, but it was not until 1S43 that
special minstrel troupes were organized,
the first consisting of the famous quar
tette, Dan Emmett, Frank Brower, Billy
Whitlock and Dick Pelham—the first of
its kind ever given anywhere—on the
17th of February, 1843. Since this date
the passage of years has witnessed hun
dreds, if not thousands, of similar organ
izations, and this arm of the dramatic
art has raised Into national, and in some
instances, international renown such fa^
miliar names as Dan Emmett, Charley
White, George Christy, Eph Horn, Nelse
Seymour, Billy Birch, Billy Backus, Ben
Cotton, Bob Hart, Ben Gardner, Luke
Schoolcraft, Gus Howard, Billy Gray,
Bob Slavin, Tony Hart. Lew Benedict,
Billy Arlington, Cal Wagner and Billy
Kersands. The last named has out lived
all other performers of note, and today
is os popular os ever, and Is the star of
Richards & Pringle's famous Georgia
Minstrels, who appear at O'Brien’s opera
house tomorrow night.
They have a large and strong com
pany, and are spoken of highly by the
Afflicted for Years.
Mr. R. B. Goodman, Marietta, Ga.,
says: "I was troubled with rheumatism,
which the doctors called sciatica, for a
number of years, doctoring with every
thing I could hear of, without benefit,
until I commenced with Dr. King's Royal
Germetuer, which cured me sound and
well. I was at times, for several months,
so I could not walk at all. I have now
been thoroughly well of it for four years,
and think there Is no medicine that can
equal Germetuer.” Write to the Atlanta

It Is my photo holder
That holds the aggregation
Of filchers, who have added
To my soul’s sore (aggravation.
My serene hour, my midnight ease,
They have most grievously abused
By subtle entries, wanton wiles
And other acts not yet excused.

THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
