There was one young man who awoke
last Baturday morning with a throbbing
brow and a reproving conscience. He
came to town from up the river to attend
Gorton's minstrel show, but owing to the
fact that ho devoted too much tlmo to un
packing glass before tho performance be
gan, be entered tho opera house with his
interior overcrowded with tbo liquid that

somewhat boisterous, and after being noti
fied several times by Policeman Knorr that
he must keep quiet and paying no atten
tion to tho gentlemanly admonition, he was
very properly and without any unnecessary
ceremony, ''bounced" from the hall. He
thought he was having lots of fun, but
when he came to think of it next morning
when hid bat was too small for bis bead,
wo doubt very much whether he thought
it was so very funny after all. The moral
is that the Bloomsburg Opera House is no
place for drunken men, and they may as
well take notice that If they come In and
do not behave themselves, they will be put

ITU) A LONO, DELL INTERVAL In tllO
amusement season, tbo past week
has, come llko an oasis In tho desert.
Every night during the week oxcopt Satur
day there has been an entertainment ot
somo kind and lovers of comic opera and
minstrelsy have had an excellent opportun.
tty to witness two ot tho best companies
In UiCBo lines that are now trarellng. A
company of glass blowers havo been at
Muslo Hall since Tuesday and will contln.
uo to glvo their entertainments both after,
noon and evening throughout tho week.
When tho curtain rolled up on the first
part ot Gorton's Minstrels at tbo Opera
House last Friday evening, thcro waa ono
of the largest audiences In attendance that
has been present at any show during tho
past season. These minstrels aro favorites
here and arc assured of first-class houses
every time they visit our town; and they
deserve them, too. Tbo playing of tbo
band Is excellent; although tboy did not
parado In thn afternoon or play beforo the
pcrtormanco In the evening as long as they
would have done had It not been so cold,
the music they did mako was first-class.
Hank Goodman, ono of the few really
funny end men, is still with tho troupe and
Is just as funny as ever. Tho other thrco
end men aro good. The clog dancing of
Lnrry McEvoy, tho Turkish patrol and tho
acrobatic dancing of Wclby and Pearl
wero all flno. Hank Goodman was good
in a sketch with O. W. Yreeland entitled
"Ktcp your eye on the horn:" tho cornet
playing of Prof. Harry Baxter wns excel,
lent; John Styles delivered a speech entit
led "The future of our country," which
was loudly applauded; the afterpiece was
good, and tbo show taken as a wholo was
the best ono of Its kind that has been seen
in this place for somo time.
The Bennett and Moulton Comic Opera
Company opened Uiclr engagement at the
Opera House Monday evening with "Mas
cot" and played successively on Tuesday
evening, Wednesday afternoon and
Wednesday evening, "Olivette," "Pinafore"
and "Chimes of Normandy". That tho
people of this placo were well pleased with
tho company was shown by the good-sized
audiences that greeted them at every per
formancc. All tho comments we have
heard havo been favorable. Miss Siegfried
is a good actress an 1 has a sweet voice, and
the remainder of the company aro well up
In their parts. Tho two comedians, Slat-
tery and Clayton aro very good. On Mon-
day night in tho "Mascot" they kept tho
house in a continual roar whenever tiny
were on tho stage. In "Olivette" as
'Coquellcot" Mr. Slattery sang "Bob
up Serenely," bringing in somo local
bits that brought down tho house. Tho
matinee, Wcdnes lay afternoon at which
Pinafore," was played, was attend.
cd by a larpe number of school
children; this opera, though It has been sung
so murh, is still well worth hearing. The
company closed their engagement hero with
the "Chimes of Normandy," Wednesday
evening, which was given in excellent stylo
There was an unusually large audience
present. Miss Siegfried was at her best.
and sang very prettily, and tho music of
this pretty opera was well rendered by
the entire company. Mr. Clayton, as Gas-
pard, the miser, and Mr. Slattery, as tho
Bailll, wero both good. Slg. Cluzettl, the
tenor, labored under a disadvantage as he
was suffering with a severe cold, and bis
singing could not be judged by bis work
hero ; Miss Etta Reed took tho part ot Ger
maine very nicely and Frank Wooley sang
well as Henri. The company will probably
play here again next season, and will with
out doubt be greeted by crowded houses.
