“How to Be Happy,” not a sunshine lecture, but
one on the Laws of happiness; Many regard this as
Mr. Lybarger’s greatest production. It is filled
with “worldly wisdom.” It is not a “sunshine”
lecture, but a search after the philosophy of right
living. It is one lecture that has the courage to face
the facts, to see things as they are. It shows not
only the right of happine'ss and the duty of happi­
ness, but the ways of happiness. _

Clare Vaughn Wales Comedy Co,,
After the Seventh Season of unprecedented success
at the head of her own company, Clare Vaughn
Wales may be safely said to be one of the establish­
ed leading lyceum attractions of the country to-day.
Miss Wales is an elocutionist of remarkable ability.
Accompanying her are Florence Adele Benson, pi­
anist and soprano, and Harry T. Longstreet baritone.
Laurant, The Man of Many Mysteries
The talented magician, Laurant, gives the most
novel, artistic and marvelous attraction of its char­
acter now appearing before the American public. He
enjoys an enviable reputation, only attained after
years of hard work. Realizing the continual de­
mand of the lyceum public for something new, art­
istic and refined, we have secured this attraction,-
and take pride in guaranteeing satisfaction.

The College Singing Girls
The College Singing Girls and Walter Eccles have
proved to be one* of the greatest successes of the
Lyceum. The eight young ladies of the Company
-are unusually talented and versatile. They are
professional singers, having good solo voices, which
perfectly blend in the concert work. Special cos­
tumes are provided for each feature. Their great
success has been due to their ability to properly ren­
der the best sacred and operatic numbers written
for women’s voices.
