Butler Afflicted With "Tent Shows."
Some time ago a so-called "tent
how" spent a week in this city and
lespite the fact that, as some ex
pressed it it was so bad that it was
really funny," managed to do a fair
ly good business. It was demon
strated that Barnum was right when
he said that "the .American people
like to be fooled. On one occasion
the management announced that 011
certain night no one under 10 years
of age would be admitted and hinted
that something naughty would be
pulled off. Result another goo
louse to see a very tame "show.
Then it was announced that a wed
ding would take place on tlie stage
011 a certain evening. Another good
house and, of course, somebody
"backed out" and there was no wed
ding. At the end of the week the
"show" lacked its tent and went on
to its next stopping place and Butler
heaved a sigh of relief.
But the worst was yet to come. If
that show was rotten, words fail
when it comes to describing the ag
gregation that opened here Monday
night for a week's stand. After tne
"show" Monday night one man was
heard to say that it was possible
that some members of the company
might be able to earn their board
shocking wheat but as actors they
were impossible.
Wby would it not be a good plan
for the city council to pass an ordi
nance requiring alleged snows 01 tnis
kind to pay a good stiff license? if
this ' and other towns would follow
that plan it would not be long until
they would be broken up and the
actors forced to make a living in
some useful occupation.
A Fine Rain.
This cart of Missouri was blessed
by a much needed rain Tuesday night,
which did much good to the corn

fairly general, extending as far cast

one coon dog," said the farmer "and
I mout as well sell ole Duke too.
Here Duke! He's gettin ole, but fel
lows, he's a putty good dorg, any

amount as the best horse.
