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
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

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

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.

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
Hot Springs play-goers who fail to
see “Merry Mary" are missing a good

merely cheating themselves. Persons

WHITTINGTON PARK NOTES.
The Kansas City Star has the fol
lowing to say about an auto polo
game, the first of which will he play
ed on Fogel Held next Monday.
"Sitting on the edge of his seat and
watching for spills is the spectator’s
chief diversion in the latest in sport
dom, that being the new game of
Auto-Polo, which pleased the crowd
at the Stadium yesterday afternoon.
They came not knowing exactly what
they were going to see. but hoping,
nevertheless, that whatever it was it
would he full of thrills. It was. They
could not have been more interested
il one side had been the home team
and the game decided the pennant
series. The women wrung their hands
and gasped and said. “Oh.” and
"O-u-ti,” and the men cheered anil
wrangled with the umpire. Auto-Polo
is a stirring sport, from the specta
tor's standpoint, and the match was
a real contest. Kansas City Star."
