While th au dience was uiscouraginfiy sm.au, it was no less appreciative, and was therefore entitled to some considers.- ties, and the company should have either given the show fn ite entirety or refused to ring up the curtain.'

Who. hftvi n tf no bine mrniMti was obliged to borrow a star from a Bock xaiana o nicer . to convince tne audi ence that he really was impersonat ing a peace preserver. It is proba ble that the eomnanv. which bu evidently been on the toboggan for some time, has been denriyed r,f its costumes, as well as some of its scenery, through aa unusually bad streak of financial embarrassment along the road. There is no doubt bat that the show would have been DUt on better if the audience had been larger, but Bock Island theatre goers have learned that it is good policy to investigate thev are from Missouri tn this respect before pa tronizing a SHOW.

They agreed to put up the scenery which they value at $1,2 0 as security. There are 12 peop'e with the show, which has been a losing venture, Manager Mttasel Says, since it left Chicago a week . ago.
