The Home Dramatic Association
atjaiu comfortably filled to see
second rendition of "Enlisted for
War." An additional feature of
performance was the supplying of an
orchestra, which was effectively done
by Miss Davidson and Prof.Francis. In
the character of ''Robert Truworth,"
Mr. R. E. Jackson displayed a de
velopment of dramatic appreciation
that if pursued to its fullest extent
would enable him to make his mark
on the stae. He was ably seconded
. -., n " -. , ,, ,
by Mr. C. C. Browcr, who, in the role
, .,,.,-. -r, ,,
prahe by his rendition of his part. In
the scene wherein he offers Robt.
Truworth the title deeds to the farm
on condition that he renounce all
claims to the land of the heiress, both
gentlemen exhibited some very fine
acling. "Hosea Jenks," the versa
tile auctioneer, who "couldn't keep it;
it would pop out," was ably taken by
D. H. Caswell, who made the most of
the part. As "Hiram Jenks," Ho
sea's dutiful son, Scott Bozorth
brought out the comical side of a lover
in distress, to the infinite amusement
of his auditors. "Crimp," the exu
berant and joyous child of the sunny
south whose graphic description of the
style and operations of his enemy the
ram, convulsed the audience, was
personated by Mr. Jo. Charters. Ho
it was who rushed in in all the glee of
new discovery to the embarrassment of
the lovers, aud he it wa3 who faithfully
aided the "Home Guard' in the dis
charge of the duty entrusted to them.
His make up aud dialect was good,
and the best praise we can bestow
upon his counterfeiting of tho genu
ine darkey is to state the fact that
some of the audience insisted that it
was a colored man who had been
trained to take the part.
As "Gaylie Gifford," the heiress,
Miss Carrie Barrows had an excellent
opportunity to exhibit some fine
acting, an opportunity which was
fully improved. Jn the sceno where
through a misunderstanding of her
motives Mrs. Truworth reproaches
her for ignoring her promise to Robert,
Miss Barrows made a most effect
ive scene, showing an exact
appreciation of just how much
force to exert in hor denial without
becoming vehemeut. Mrs. Etta Char
tars, as "Mrs. Truworth," Bussained
the part with a quiet dignity in'keep
ing with the character of the mother
who sent her son to battle for the
right, while she remained behind to
pray. Her enunciation was especial
ly commendatory, evory inflection of
voice being clearly audible. As "Mat
tie Truworth," Miss Laura Ferrell
most happily filled the part of a hand
some yonng girl proud of her. brother
and her lover and happy in their hap
piness. Ono of tho most enjoyable features
of the occasion wa3 tho exquisite ren
dition on a concertina, by Mr. Cam
eron cf several imitations of bag
pipes, bells chiming, etc., which elic
ited repeated encores.
A noticeable feature f tho per
formance was one which in amateur
companies is generally conspicuous by
reason of its absence the proper ob
servance of what is known as "stage
business." However perfect ono may
be in their lines, however thoroughly
one may have rehearsed, yet upon the
exits and entraucc3, the posture and
transit while on the stage, embracing,
etc., depends greatly the success of
the play. In this pnrticular, as in
others, the Home Dramatic Associa
tion is to be commended for its pro
ficiency. The performers in the afterpiece al
eo acquitted themselves creditably
and received most uproarious applause.

dience last evening with "The Last

Drowned on Peacock Spit
Boat 2o. 33 of the Ocean Canning
Co.. upset at Peacock Sj-it last Tues
day afternoon, resulting in the death
of J. H. Winkler, who was fishing
this season with Capt. Robt. Lmfare.
They were on the point of returning
when a breaker upset the boat; both
men dived, and on coming to the sur
faco Capt. Lanfare shouted to his com
panion to get to tho boat and, as soon
as the net had drifted by he would
join him. Wiukler did so, Lanfare
swimming some thirty yards away and
keeping himself afloat till the net
would drift by. Winkler got up on
the capsized boat, and stood up look
ing toward Langfare when a breaker
struck him with great force and washed
him off. Lanfare struck out, but be
coming exhausted got up on the boat
which drifted with him till rescued by
one of Geo. Hume's boats. About an
hour afterward one of tho Union
Packing Co.'s boats caught tho body
of Winkler in the net; it was immedi
ately conveyed to town. Deceased

will take place this afternoon at two
o'clock from Grace church.

That Blessed Baby.
"Well, how is the baby?" asked the
grocery-man of the bad boy, as he '
carao into the grocery smelling very
with the back gone, and looked very
'Oh, darn tho baby. Everybody
asks mo about the baby as though it
was mine. I don't pay no attention
to the darn thing, except to notice
the foolishness going on around the
house. Say, I guess that baby will
grow up to bo a fire engine. The
nurse coupled the baby on to a section
of rubber hose that runs down into a
bottlo of milk, and it began to get up
atoam and pretty soon the milk began
to disappear, just like the water does
when a fire engiuo couples on to a
hydrant. Pa calls the baby "Old
Number Two." I'm "Number One,"
and if pa had a hook and ladder truck
and a hose cart and a fire going, he
would imagine he was chief engineer
of the fire department. But the baby
kicks on this milk-wagon milk, and
howls like a dog that's got lost. The
doctor told pa the best thing he could
do was to get a goat, but pa said
since we 'uishiated him into the Ma
sons with the goat, he wouldn't have
a goat around no how. The doctor
told pa the other kind of a goat, I
think it was a Samantha goat ho said,
wouldn't kick with its head, and pa
sent me up into the Polack settlement
to see if I could borrow a milk goat
for a few weeks. I got a woman to
letid us her goat till the baby got big
enough to chew beef, for a dollar a
week, and paid a dollar in advance,
and pa went up with me in the even
ing to get the goat. Well, it was the
darndest mistake yon ever see. There
was two goats so near alike you
couldn't tell which was the goat
wo leased, and the other goat was tho
chum of our goat, but it belonged to
a Nirish woman. We got a bed cord
hitched against the Irish goat, and
that goat didn't recognize the lease,
and when we tried to jerk it along it
rared right up, and made things lively
for pa. I don't know what there is
about a goat that mikea it got so
spunky, but that goat seemed to have
a grudge against pa from tho first. If
there were any places on pa's manly
form that the goat did not explore,
with its head, pa don't know where
the places are. Oh, it lammed him,
and when I laffed pa got mad. I told
kim every man ought to furnish his
goats, when he had a baby, and I let
go of the rope and started off, and pa
said he knew how it was, I wanted
him to get killed. It wasn't that, but
I saw the Irish woman that owned
the goat coming around tho corner of
tho house with a cistern pole. Just
as pa was getting tho goat out of tho
gate, the goat got cross ways of tho
gate, and pa yanked and doubled the
goat right up, and I thought ho had
broke the goat's neck, and the woman
thought so to, for she jabbed pa with
the cistern pole just below tho belt,
and she tried to get a hold on pa's
hair, but he had her there. No wo
man can get the advantage of pa that
way, 'cause ma has tried it. Well, pa
explained it to the woman, and she
let pa off if he would pay her two J.ol
lars damages to her goat, and he paid
it, and then we took the nanny goat
and it went right along with us. Tho
baby hasn't done anything but blat
since the nurse coupled it on to the
goat hydrant. I had to take all my
playthings out of the basement to
keep the goat from eating them. 1
guess tho milk will taste of powder
and singed hair now. The goat
got to eating some Roman candles
me and my chum had laid away in the
coal bin. and chewed them around
the furnace, and the powder leaked
out and a coal fell out of the furnace
on the hearth, aud you'd a did e to
see pa and the hired girl and the goat.
You see pa can't milk nothing but a
milk-wagon, and ho got the hired
girl to milk the goat, and they were
just hunting around the basement for
the goat, with a tin cup, when the
fire-works went off. Well, there was
balls of green, and red, and blue fire,
and spilled powder blazed up, and the
goat just looked astonished, and
looked on as though it was sorry so
much good fodder was spoiled, and
when its hair began to burn the goat
gave one snort and went between pa
and the hired girl, like it was shot
out of cannon, and it knocked pa over
a wash boiler into a coal bin, and the
hired girl in amongst tho kindling
wood, and she crossed herself and re
peated the catekistn and the goat
jumped up on top of the brick furnace,
and they couldn't get it down. I
heard the celebration, and went down
and took pa by the pants snd polled
him out of the coal bin, and ho said
ho would surrender, and plead guilty
of being tho biggest fool in Milwau
kee. I pulled the kindling wood off
tho hired girl, and then she got mad,
and said sho would milk that goat or
die. Oh, that girl has got sand. She
used to work in tho glasi factory.
Woll, sir, it was a sight worth two
shillings admission to see that hired
girl get up on a step-ladder to milk
that noat.on top of the furnace, with
pa sitting on a barrel of potatoes
bossing the job. They are going to
fix a gang-plank to get the goat down
off the furnace. The baby kicked on
the milk last night. I cuess be
sides tasting of powder aud burnt hair
the milk was too warm on account of
tho furnace. Pa has got to grow a
new lot of hair ojthat goat or the
woman won't take it back. She
don't wane no bald goat. Well, they
can run tho baby and goat to suit
themselves, 'cause I Tiave resigned.
