he buy her, and what happened." It
must have been gratifying indeed to
the company to play to such
good crowd that witnessed "A
Bachelor's Honeymoon" last night.
was a real comedy and the audi
ence rocked in a storm of laughter
and applause. Mr. Gilson fully satisi
fied the demands made upon him
and kept the audience in an uproar
over his singular and strenuous
"honeymoon." He was well support
by the company ™d each one
deserves special mention. The vaude
ville by Miss Hazelton and Mr. Win
was well rendered and en
The company wil be welcomed a
