Last Night's Play.

second night's engagement presented
"La Belle Marie" to a good house
The play and performance was up to
the standard of the company's excell-
ence. The costumes were ranked
among the finest ever seen upon our
stage. Miss Claiie Sumers in the
dual role of Jean Ioglesides and '"La
Belie Marie-' handled two difficult
parts with the skill of an artist that
she is. Pete Raymond as "Stubbs"
kept the audience in roars of laughter
and Fred Hubbard as "Waupingee"
was immense. The rest of the cast
divided honors. Tonight "In Old
Kentucky"1 that beautiful comedy
drama of the south will be the play.
A feature of the performance is the

The Hoy t Company Mascot.
A member of Hoyt's Oniiedy com-
pany who is not on the bill and yet
is entitled to his share of praise is the
mascot "Ted." Ted is a little dog a
cross between a Yorkshire and Scotch
terrier. He i-ame into this world
about a year ago inKe York and
was presented to Mr. Raymond by a
friend. For many days TeTs life was
despaired of and be enjoys the dis-
tinction of being raided on a i title.
Ted is oue of the most intelligent ca-
uines on earth. He considers it bis
duty to each night. just before the
curtain is rung up to ee that all the
actors are on hat.d. lie will goto
each dressing room and beg to be ad-
mitted and then smell around look
wise and go back to h!s m.i-icr's trunk
in which he always lie- while the
play is in progress. Should all the
actors be in their places Ted jump up
in the trunk well satisfied. Should
anyone be ab-eut he becomes worse
than a manager on a tirt-night and
does his best to explain in logulogy"
to his master that all Is r.ot well. He
goes with the bill boys and bell- dis-
tribute the bill? and will bark iti front
ofaduoruntil someone shows up to
take the bill from the boy. He cau
let one know when he wants a drink
or is hungry besides doing numerous
other trick. Ted is the pride the
pet and the mascot of the coti:pa;y
and a hundred dollars coal cash would
not buy him.

mony wa made today the parties

thing told the young man he must
go back to Afton and sec: re evidence
of parental consent.
