Brown is again attracting the atten
tion of the amusement loving world
and will be seen at the Columbia
Theater, Monday Jvve., Jan. 24.
The staging of this merry melange
of mirth and music has beet: done
with rare skill and proficiency and
nothing has been left uudone by
the producers to make the piece
surpassingly excellent. An entire
new version of Buster ' Brown has
given it new life, songs and jokes
of the very latest brand and made
unusually attractive by the bestow
al of beautiful scenery on the big
production. Master Reed has beeu
especially engaged to enact the role

perfectly portrayed by Jack Bell,
while "Buster's" sweetheart, "Ma
ry Jane" is played by petite and

"METZ AND THE DONKEY"
Al H. Wilson Played and Sang
to a Lone Little Girl.
Al. II. Wilson, the German dia
lect comedian, who wi'l appear
here in the Columbia Theatre on
Thursday, January 27th, was
standing in front of the box office
of the Columbia Theatre in Wash
ington, D. C, during his engage
ment at that theatre, when a little
girl, poorly dressed, but with frock
neatly mended and bair nicely
combed, bashfully handed him a
Taking the envelope, Mr. Wil
son asked what he could do for her.
''Please sir," she said, and her
voice contained a little catch. "I
want to see 'Metz' when he comes
on the stage with the donkey."
The envelope contained seven
pennies and she had seen the pic
ture of Mr. Wilson and the donkey
in front of the theatre.
Locking at the little tot with her
bright, expectant features, Mr.
Wilson's thoughts traveled back to
childhood days and in a voice
equally as shaky as her own he
said: "I have no little girl of my
own to take to the theatre, so if
you will come with nie you shall
see 'Metz' and the donkey."
The theatre was sold out, with
the exception of one private box
in the parquet. Instructing the
treasurer not to sell this box, Mr.
Wilson took the child inside and
established her in a at where she
had an unobstructed view of the
stage. During the performance
many in the audience wondered
why Mr. Wilson sang all his songs
to the lone little figure in the box,
but then they did uot know how

Says the Shamokin News: "In
company with Frank P. Llewellyn,
secretary and treasurer of the Sha
mokin & Coal Township Light &
Power Company, Messrs. Edward
Weatherby, Johu Robins and sev
eral other New York capitalists
who are directly interested in the
proposed purchase of the light and
power plant, made a tour of the
town today inspecting the light
plant and its various circuits and
from present indications the sale of
the plaut will be effected within
the next few days. Some time ago
the New York capatalists, who are
interested in the purchase of light
plants and trolley systems through
out the region, paid $5,000 for an
optioii on the local plant the option
being of thirty days' duration.
Since then the New Yorkers have
been making a thorough investiga
tion of the plant and its subsidiary
branches, including the gas plant
and wire service and as these are
all in first class condition there is a
rumor current today that the sale
of the plant is a foregone conclu
sion It is further generally under
stood that the local trolley com
pany has given the same capitalists
an option on tne trolie,y line ana
that there is a likelihood of the
deal being consummated in connec
tion with the sale of the light plaut.
It was impossible to interview any
of the officers of the light company
or any oi the interested capitalists
this afternoon, but those who are
closely in touch with the situation
feel certain that the sale of the
plant will be consummated within
a short time.
