ILA was all Fussed Up over the
prospect of showing the ueigh-
* bors how acting should really
be acted. Lila was the prin­
cipal Daughter of a Poultry Merchant
aud was to play the role of Cypreue,
heroine of the Grand civil war drama
to be produced at the Opry House of
Maple Grove. That the Opry House
used to be a skating rink, and prior to
that, a freight station for the W abash
railroad, did not alter the local opinion
among the Amateur Thespians that it
; was In every sense qualified to be a
veritable Temple of the Muses.
But. anyway, that’s w hat it was.
The eventful night arrived. Lila
was there. So was the Poultry Cir­
culator. and his wife. And Lila shone
Iridescently, even incandesceutly, in
the character of the fair Young Thing
who saved Corporal Thompson's life
every time he succeeded in coaxing
himself into Imminent Danger.
It was one of those W ar Plays which
make one believe that the Famous
General had the Correct Perspective
! in his Description of War. If th at fa­
mous Institution for working off the
world’s surplus population is as Fierce

they got her all Dolled Up like a Poi­
soned Frog aud the stage manager
shoved her through the wings and into
the full glure of the Calciums and the
Populace. IJla was all to the Sarah
Bernhardt then, you may be Sure.
Her Job was to rescue Corporal
Thompson, 17th New York Volunteers,
Union army, from the Dire Vengeance
of Sergeant Culpepper, 18th Georgia
Reserves, Confederate army.
Just why Corporal Thompson ought
to be rescued is one of the mysteries
of Life. Nothing he'd ever done gave
him the right to a real, bang up Res­
The role of the corporal was being
Essayed by Heiuie Mouse, nephew of
the Switch Tender over at Larrabee’s
Crossing. And Sergeant Culpepper
was portrayed by No Less a personage
than Percival Potage, brother of Clau-
dina Jones who runs the Elite Hash
House down near the Wet Creek
Swimmln’ Hole.
Yes it was Some Sassy Party of our
Inside Social Set that was performing
the histrionic Goose Step before the
audience of High Toned Guys at the
Opry House.
Corporal Thompson was arguing
with Sergeant Culpepper about the
Excessive tax on Bourbon Firew ater
levied by the Confederate government

Detained from the Bowery by the

The Sergeant was Protesting that he
was not Excise Commissioner of the
Confederacy at the time. He proved,
