The Allen Stock Company completed
a week s engagement here last Saturday
night. Every play put on during the
entire week was up to tne expectations
of the audience. There was not a tingle
"bum" performance during the whole
week, the production of "the Blark
Heifer ' Saturday evening was as amus
ing a farce comedy as was ever put on
the local stage, and literally brought
down the house on more than one oc
casion. Tbe specialties introduced be
tween acts were all good. The songs
of George Walsh were highly commend
able, while as for little Verna Feltoo,
she was a decided "bit" of the show.
While a mere child of ten or twelve
tender summers she is an actress with
more expression than ordinarily, falls to
humankind. Her appearance was al
ways a signal for prolonged applause!
and she was repeatedly encored. While 1
tbe company was good tbe show was not
a succeas financially as the crowds who
witnessed the performance were not
large enough to support a company of
20 people. They promise to make Ore
