Daly’ s Comedians opened a five
nights engagement at Verts Hall last
evening with a crowded house, in fact
the largest audience that has been
seen in the hall for many months.
Their entertainment was first-class con

out an exception the best that has vis
ited our city, while the black face
comedian kept the house in a contin
ual uproar with his jokes and ready
wit. Little Nita, as a song and dance
artist has few equals.
