No minstrel rir.-t pall ever ci'eaied ihe en thtisiif sm which tiie one of last nig'., did. lively one of Ihe artists on lh s:n:.re was uistef e.'iiy and elegantly co tinned. The gray wigs ami saiin sail oi tiie singers were all new and mad to order for ihe occasion. Tile stag selti:; was preuv. decidedly s and the arrangenienis could not have been mure V rtect. It was a picture ihat : Jirsl part, and to tin- skilled iiands of ; .ohn A. Oinirles belongs the credit for this picturesque scene. As the heautii'ul sir.iins of nntsh- j from ihe opening chorus fill upon the cars ol the audience, the applause be came more apparent, and ihe "March of the Men of 1 larh'ck" prowl a lining ; :mpe I r for ihe rest of the program, j D'own in tin- orchestra box stood ihe ; man v lu, lias dlrccicd so many nnssi- cai a fiairs in lids city, and as he swur.g , Ids iliiccting red to and fro. he felt ! siiiisiicd to know i Ik; i he had :ic-c:a- ( jdished his share in the generous sue- I ci ss. l're!'

Keililier siood be- fore the chorus as ihey sung, a ml his i baton swung iu perfect time with the j strains of music. As soon as the an- ; plans,, had cone d William H.

Davis made their ap- epa ranee, no end oi and ihey ooriainiy created ainusemeut. Tin ir cnii'iince and nppe arance were uiiiiire.' anil wen conceived, in mi l, tney mane a e i; decided hit. Kdwin W. I'ce.c'n was next iutr niu -ed and sang very sweetiy "A Garden of Koses." ' li w'as well rendered :flid re ceived a merited encore. 1-. 1". Davis then rendered himself of several bright tilings that, he had been preparing for li few months, and Ihey digested well with' those present. The Imperial liiariette. consisting of Messrs .1. Wnl den Moore. W. II. Davis. .1. Krnnklyn Barbour and I. II. Clark, then sang a very bright and catchy selection enti tled "Slop by Slip." It was sung so well that the audience asked fov it again and again. Hilly Gillette then got off a few of his droll sayings, and lie proved himself an able exponent of 1he art of being funny. V. Williini Ilerr saug a song composed by himself and it was well done. The song was "My Own woet Kose."' Gillette and Davis tli. - proved their versatility by pinging tiie "Oriental Coon." This uleased evcrvbodv so much that Ihey were kept pretty, busy dodging the :p- nlaiise. .1. Waldni Moore. Water- iuirv's, premier tenor, then sang a very pretty ballad. "The Way to Win a Wo man's Heart." If was one of I lie bright jrems of. the evening and IV- reived several encores. There was , next hmvidiiced Charles .Humphrey and I.uke Henderson, the premier cml lnen, and -the way they kept the audi ence In gooil humor proves that there was no mistake in putting them at the lic.-id. Both told clever stories, and " Dan Davis, who sat in the box close to the stage, will not soon forget the witticism that was sprung at his ex- pense by Henderson. The Orpheus, quartet to pave the next number Little Girl. Don't Cry." was the iltle of the selection, and the . gentlemen who comprised ihe quartette were !essrs .buries Johnson, W. J. Blather wick. J. C Heifderson and F. H. AVoods. , They sang to a deserved en core. Kurt songs by Henderson and Humphrey. were also well done! Hen derson was presented with a head of cabbage for his efforts, but a -search beneath ths' outer leaves revealed something to warn' the inner man, ami lie was tickled at the present. 1 One of the best numbers of the even ing was the singing of J. Franklyn Barbour. His selection was "A Sol- " flier Song." and the audience was not satisfied to let him quit when he did. Mr Barbour was in good voice and his p!ngiiiK was grand and interesting. The first part closed with the chorus, 'Hunting Song," from "Princess - Chic." . ' " Teddy Biggerstaff came on -first in the olio, and if Iip is not satisfied with Uie. reception' he received-be ought to emigrate. As a "coster" singer Teddy lias, yo equal in this city, and it would , iiiird ta find many better on the rtrofestdonal stage. His topical song whi one of tiie hits of the eveulnsj. and n well done was it that lie had to f-Z selection. He : cus- tumed himself for each, and lie made Tiie greatest lilt of tile olio. The llogau brothers pleased those present with negro melodies and dames. Then came a. fancy drill by thirty-two men, and it was will done. It might per haps be cut shortrr in some places, but it took with the audience. Billy Gillette and Davis convlused the spectators in their next specialty. They entered on an improvised auto mobile and represented two l'aibes that had just landed in the town. They sang a funny ditty and sang it well, and tlw-y were kept on the stage for many minutes. Their exit from the stage was rather novel and a humorous ending to a clever sketch. They had seated themselves in the alleged auto mobile when there was au explosion, and the automobile fell to pieces and Gillette and Davis ascended Into the air. it was cleverly done. .Master Harold Cooke, dressed as a girl, and wi ll done. too. sang the "Sousa Girl." and t lie young chap did excellently It was a ) retiy lit lie number. The en tire company sang the linal:-. and the inii.iin descended on one of the best local I'lUevtaiiiinents seen for many STKAXGK FATAL ACCIDENT. A lie kville Man Das the Top of His Head Knocked Oil". Boekville. Conn. Dec 4. - Nelson Snow, iiged -id. was instantly killed Uiis morning 'while assisting in mov ing a building at Vernon Center, throe miles from this place. Mr Snow was employed by A. V.

An oak bar nine feet long and four inches thick was iu ihe ti.; cf the capsiau with a pair :f horses attached to the outer end. Mr Snow evidently thought the horses were not moving fast cneugh. and as 1hey passed him. he hit tiicni with a whip. The sudden start of the animals broke the cap stan far. one of ihe pieces striking Mr Suie.v on tile head s; violently that the top of the s.-;i 11 was taken clean off. A piece of the bar was afterward, found seventy-five feet awav. One of the horses sustained a fracture of a ii'ir and lied io he shot. The edi ciais who invest Igoicd the accident say that an inmcrfection in the cap stan bar was the cruse of the trouble. YOl'NG WO.MA." snciDKS.
