1211 THINGS DRAMATIC,
Something else new for a change at
O'Brien's opera house tonight and tomor
row night and matinee tomorrow after
noon.
There are numerous show productions
nowadays, which, in some inexplicable
manner, tlnd their way upon the stage,
and which are neither farces nor come
dies—they possess the essential elements
„f ne iher, and nre termed farce-come
dies because there is nothing else they
...an be e-alled "A Railroad Ticket,” how
ever. is a refreshing exception. It is a
truly humorous melange of story Hnd
plot—a, ting and singing, and dancing
and scenery - all with a purpose and rea
son. and Is full of ludicrous situations
arid funny scenes, and is entertaining
throughout. The plot—for there is one
In "A Railroad Ticket"—hinges upon the
wtals at»d tribulations of a ticket broker,
who makes up In nerve what he larks In
capliAl The nrtlon is quick, and the dia
logue is always bright and witty, while
the stage Is always charmingly alive
with pretty, well-behaved girls, whose
tasteful costumes and bright faces lend
color and harmony to the whole produc
tion A real electrlo.'ear, propelled by a.
•forage battery and running on steel
rails, makes frequent trips across the
tage and lends an air of realism to the
yiav The oar plays an important part
bf a real acting member of the company,
and knows its own lines and never gets
off the track, and the scenes enacted In
•onnectlon with It are productive of con
siderable merriment.
KENNEDY.
Hundreds of Mon Scouring Ihe Country for
a I .out Roy.
Kennedy. Dec. 4.—(Special Correspond
ence.)---A seel ion of Pickens county is
very much excited over the disappear
ance of the little 7-year-ctld son of Henry
Parsons, who was sent on an errand to a
neighbor's a quarter of a mile distant
about ten clays ago nnd has never re
turned.
When he left home the little fellow
was accompanied by his pet dog, who
returned a few hours afterwards. Hun
dreds of men are scouring tho country,
and every few days tlnd what they think
are traces of him. but it Is all supposi
tion, and hardly seems possible that a
child could exist ten days In Ihe woods
exposed to the severe weather we have
been having.
Miss Anna Cook of Colombus, Miss.,
spent Sunday in Kennedy, much to the
gratification of her many friends.
Mr. Seay and Miss Ola Suggs of Pick
ens county were married last night at
the home of the bride, and are on their
way to their future home in Mississippi.
The unsettled condition of the cotton
market causes trade to be fitful and un
satisfactory, though some few bales are
sold each day.

" THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
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
ol 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.
