American Fusiiliers Make Good
The musical comedy program offered
at the Hippodrome last night
by Adair's American Fusiiliers proved j
to be exactly to the liking of the three
audiences which greeted it during the
afternoon an<Vevenic;. The company ]
is composed of capable performers and
the chorus is a particularly pleasing,
feature of the show. Th? musical part i
of the program also caught on in good j
style and the work of the T*aradise j
Fou rwas greeted with prelongeil applause.
The present bill introduces!
several picasing novelties. on>i whatl
there is about it that is r.ot absolutely ;
new. was worked over in such a way!
as to give it a touch of newness and j
the audiences evinced their delight in'
outbursts of laughter. The same bill j
will be repeated tonight and a chattgc;
of program offered tomorrow, which i
is the last day of the rtigr/ument. the
company moving out to make way for
"Mv Honolulu Girl." which is the Hip-;
porirome attraction for the last half!
01" the week. Added to the present
program is an Arbuckle comedy v.iih
the delightful "fatty uoinsr an -onof
unexpected things in a Far-snioa;.
