Eb. Scowenhoven. The Yankee Farmer. If a person were afflicted with the rheumatism, gout and neuralgia, they would have to forget their pains and laugh at this character. As soon as ••Eb” makes his appearance, he tells the audience that he has lost his cow, has been kicked by a mule and a few other misfortunes that have happened to him. After awhile he sees the piano, and has something to say about it. No one being present to play it, he decides to play it himself; so, after singing a comic song, he amuses himself by play ing ‘‘Turkey in the Straw,” in rag time. The playing of this tune has ! such an effect on him that he cannot resist the temptation to dance, although he weighs nearly 300 pounds. While dancing, his legs begin to get short; the audience notice this and begin fo laugh; the lnger he dances the shorter his legs become, anu the shorter hia legs be come the louder tne audience laugh, and as his legs are becoming shorter every minute the laughter grows louder, and finally, when his legs become so short that" they disappear altogether, then the laughter turns to howling, and when the audiance are all howling to gether they make such a noise that sometimes they can be heard outside of the theatre for a quarter of a mile.
