The Belle of Btngrtne has moved
to "Umphsrille,' and amidtt her
new surroundings the la far-more
popular than ever. "The Belle of
BIngvUle" it the ikit that Fred
Whltefteld and Marie Ireland play
ed so well In the past "Umphs
vllle" is the title Of their new Ve
hicle which affords these clever
farceurs an opportunity to carry
on in the same characters but with
absolutely new .material, "ymphs
hville" is without a donbt the fun
niest Skit these players have ever
had. : , i -. .- -
Pistel and Johnson, in their
"Stranded Minstrels" remind us
that the onlyjtage product of the
19th century that withstood tne
test of time is ' the burnt cork
comedian. Their clean, wholesome,
joyous picture of irresistible hu
man nature, as nature exhibits ner
self in the colored race, It one of
the best features in modern vaude
ville. This applies especially to
Messrs. Pistel and Johnson, who
are' among the best exponents of
blackface comedy on the American
vaudeville stage today "
Mang and Snyder are athletes of
superior . manner. In these days
when the most difficult and hazard
ous feats are performed with apparent-
ease, it is hard for gym
nasts to introduce anything new
into their offering. This team, who
style themselves ' "20th Century
Wonders," are credited with these
accomplishments. At any rate,
