been about eighteen years since be left
The Dalles to "run on a boat on the
Snake river. From Lewiston he went
to Spokane, afterwards going np into
British Columbia, where be has 'since
been engaged in mining. Eight vears
ago he visited his mother and eiejer here
for a day or two ; but having been away
from the city for so v many years, he is

he left his boyhood's home and never

other. The latest - trouble, however,
was with another kind of a male, and
if that piece of humanity isn't walking
the deck of the bo&t today swearing
vengeance on those who named the two
places, it is because the ecenery has
captured him. He is a member of the

Dallas, ' but by some unaccountable
means hied himself to the D. P. & A. N.
dock and purchased a ticket for The
Dalles. Nothing loth be boarded the

at the dock last night to find that he
didn't know where he was "at." He

Dallas and The Dalles is about (4, and

Altbongh' the attendance was fairly
good.no doubt the Noble company would
have bad a much larger audience last
night had it not been for the counter
attraction at the Vogt. There are just
enough theater-going people in the city
to make one good audience, consequently
when there are two attractions on one
nigbt both must suffer therefrom.
However, in spite 01 tne tact tnat an
enthusiastic audience is almost a neces
sity in order to give a good show,' the
'Gold King" was "well rendered on this
occasion, and some good acting was
witnessed by those who attended.
Noble is an all around actor, as has
already been proven by the two nights'
plays giyen, and he has some 'splendid
support. If an audience is looking- for

looked at it in the light that a dollar

is absolutely no facilities for euch a pro

that the acoustic properties are good .
Over and over again last night did the
audience wish that it might be heard
from a large stage, with better settings
But many times have onr people paid
75 cents and ,$1 for plays which could
not be mentioned in connection with
last night's opera, despite the disad
"Mascot" is a very pleasing little
opera, and the music at once classic and
catchy. This company has added many
comic features and situations ' which
keep the audience in a roar of laughter.
Never did we hear so many new and

those of last night. The puns were not

from two such perfect comedians as

great satisfaction. Hagemen alsohas a
