kind of first cousin to coon song.
Then came the crushing blow of the
evening. How college men could be
so perfidious we cannot see; but cer
tain it is, that the highly-touted
“ventriloquist” proved to be a fakir,
and his imported manikins only a
couple of Juniors and a Sophomore.
How Professor Oreganass expected to
feed us that kind and get away with
it, we can’t understand; in fact, the
gentleman sitting next us in the coop

titled “Posted.” All we can say for

man, the ingenue, the heavy, the
soubrette, and the supporting com

fore, the production might have met
with fairer success.
As we said at the beginning, it was
a good show.

they so vain and timid as to forego a
University dance simply because they
