MORRISON IS ALL
TOJE GOOD
MADE A GREAT HIT LAST NIGHT
EVEN AMUSING MEMBERS
OF HIS ORCHESTRA.
"On Parole" or "Miss Dixie," was
the title of the farce comedy presented
by the Morrison Comedy Company
at the Grand last night which proved
to be another one of the exceptionally
strong numbers for the week which
the company Is spending In Fairmont.
The scene of the play put <Jn last
night Is drawn in Virginia just before
the outbreak of the war and the little
story of love and heroism is carried
on throughout the conflict between
the North and the South in a most
interesting manner, with sufficient
comedy to make the play decidedly
interesting. -The bombardment at
Federal headquarters was the real
thing. Mr. Hugh Morrison has not
failed to Jteep up his reputation as an
actor of the first rank which he established
by his work on the opening
night, and last night-.his ability as; a
burnt cork artist was abundantly recognized
by the large audience that witnessed
the performance. Mr. Harry
'Feldman, all round comedian and expert
dancer, made good also in his
black face work. The dancing of
Feldman and Ball has made a hit with
all who like to see dancing done lust
right with the full quota of variations
which they know so well how to Inject
Into their work.
Miss Eva Sargent Is another one
of the company that Is pleasing the
theater goers and she will be seen
to-night in the leading roll in the
' Vagabond's Wife."
Another feature of this company,
which Is pronounced by all to be the
best stock company ever appearing
here, Is the work of Alleen Morrison
who Is an adept In any role she assumes,
and her versatility is equal to
that of any member of the company.
Mr. Morrison himself not. excepted.
Her work shows the evidence of re
flnelnent and good training. As a
whole the company Is well balanced
and while some improvements might
be made In some particulars still the
specialities and vaudeville acts alone
are well worth the price of admission.
The Ladles' Colonial Orchestra has
brought out good crowds each evening
to witness the open air concerts and
Miss Mary E. Reber, the director, has
a band of musicians that Is not surpassed
by many of the .larger shows
on the road, and the Morrison Comedy
Company makes no mistake In Incurring
this additional expense as
their music will be a bid for crowded
bouses should the company make a
return engagement.
It was quite noticeable to witness
the smiles of the members of the orchestra
last evening while Mr. Morrison
feas doing Borne of his best comedy
work, and it can be said right
here that an actor that can amuse his
own orchestra la not In the mediocre

HORSE BECAME'
FRIGHTENED
AND PLUNGED OVER BRIDGE,
FALLING DISTANCE OF 40
TO 50 FEET.
CHARLESTON, Sept 5.*- Mrs.

Mrs. Bert Shlrkey, of near Sissonsvllle,

.and their horses becoming frightened,

Although a number of people were
In the near vicinity, none were able
to assist the ladles, and finally the
horse plunged over the bridge to the
ground below, a distance of between
40 and 60 feet Mrs. Bert Shirkey
iell from the buggy before the horse
took the plunge but was precipitated
down the embankment. Some bushes
broke the force of her fail and she
escaped injury except for a few
bruises.
Mrs. Henry Shirkey could not escape
and1 fell the full distance. The
horse was Instantly killed and parts
of the demolished rig struck Mrs.!
Shirkey, bruising her painfully. Fortunately,
and in a most miraculous
way, she escaped serious Injury, although
those who witnessed the ao'
cldent expected to find her dead or
fatally mangled,
Dre. 0. L. Aula, of this city, and
W. F. Shirkey, of Marmet, were called,
and after an examination stated
