KUMALAE. ' | Cbe Cheaters AT THE PRINCESS. Neat and novel throughout, with good clean-cut comedy, catchy songs and clever lines, handled by persons of unquestioned ability is a brief sum mary of the merits of ‘Merry Mary," the tabloid attraction, which begins its three days’ engagement at. the Princess theatre this afternoon. Nothing more or less than a pleas ing mixture of mirth, melody and win seme maidens, the little tabloid show will prove to he more than a surprise to everyone and is really better in many respects than some of the high er priced productions which have played hire during the present sea son. Merry Mary" reminds one strongly of the good old burlesque shows, which used to come south every now and then, and since a burlesque is con structed for fun purposes only, it may lie seen that the tabloid show is a fun-provider from start to finish. A clever bunch of comedians, head ed by Harry Shannon provide ample amusement for the big crowds, while dainty little Harriet l,ee and Inez (iirard sing and dance their way Into pnpninr favor. As a comedian Harry Shannon is far above the ordinary, and it is not too strong to say fhai he is one of the best of his hind that has appeared south this season in any kind of a show. His work is decidedly the fea ture of the evening, and there is not I a moment when he is on the stage that fun is lacking. Miss Lee is a graceful dancer and is pleasing to look upon. Miss Gir ard is also richly endowed with fem inine charms and is a splendid singer. She demonstrate* that she is a singer of more ability than is usually found in attractions of this class. (•tiy Voyer is also a Rood singer an(] will please in all of numbers. In addition, he is a dancer of the better kind and it is certain that his work will please. Thomas Hearn. Bobby Vail and Franklin Fox are other mem bers of the cast who are capable. The piece is surprisingly well mounted and is supplied with com plete effects for all occasions. The chorus girls are good looking and are splendid dancers. Hot Springs play-goers who fail to see “Merry Mary" are missing a good show\ and those who refuse to go are merely cheating themselves. Persons who witness an attraction of this kind for ten. twenty and thirty cents are getting the biggest treat of their lives. WHITTINGTON PARK NOTES.
