Chicago, May 17. Whllejthe weather
may be a monotonous Bnbjeci to read and

serious matter to thousands of people who
are financially and otherwise Interested in
the exposition, eaterday was the six
teenth day, and more bleak, disagreeable
weather It would lw hard to And any whet o
at this reason of the year. The effect is
seen on all sides, and the exposition peoplo
ore discouraged accordingly. 1 he average
paid attendance so far has not been much
over 17,000 dally, which is far below the
number necessary to meet even the oper
ating expenses of the exposition, to say
nothing of the millions of half dollars
needed to pay the bondholders and stock
holders of the great enterprise.
The dl lectors of the World's Columbian
exposition have decided to abrogate their
contract with congress by which they
bound themselves to close the fair on bun
day in consideration of an appropriation
of ta.500,000. The money will be returned
to the government and hereafter the fair
will be opened Sundays.

Large Audience In a Three Act
Lehighton Is to bo congratulated on
having so talented and accomplished
young people as those who took part In
tho rendition of "Single Life," a 3 act
comedy drama, In the Opera House on
last Friday evening. "Single Life''
abounds with pretty situations; coml
cnl conditions, laughablo and yet
sensible moral deductions. Tho con
test of the comedy Is bctweon the
bachelors nnd spinsters and the finality
proves the weaker sex to be the strong
est In mntrimotiial manipulations.
John Niggle, a fluctuating bachelor,
was David McCormlck; David Damrer,
a women-hating bachelor, was charac
terized lu a graceful, easy, natural
manner by Granville Clauss, who, In
his contempt for frail women, Bctcd
out ono of tho most unnatural charac
ters to him, for Granville has a special
penchant for the fair sox; Peter Pinkoy,
a bashful bachelor, was as good as a
professional. George W. Gray carried
himself lh this character with an ability
and naturalness that kept the audience
in a merry mood; Narcissus Boss, a
self-loving bachelor, was no better him
self than pleasant Charley Mcrtz who
acted out tho part with great credit to
the original Mr. Boss; Charles Chester,
a mysteriouBbachelor, by Allen Peters
was characterized in n very pleasant
way aud proved Allen to bo o delight
ful adept at dissimulation; Carolina
Coy, a vilified spinster, by Miss Anzio
Mantz, was a difficult part well acted
by this accomplished young lady;
Mlrta Macaw, n mau-hatlug spluster,
was ono of the most difficult characters
m "Single Lifo." Miss Julia Rose per
formed this part In tho comedy with
the most pleasing success her self
possession and natural acting through
out eleclttug many pleasant words of
approval from the large audience, who
were delighted with the acting of what
to many accomplished young ladles is
the most unnatural to their disposition
The original Miria Mccaw, a hater of
man; haughty and domineering was no
stronger lu her sentiments against
"men folts" than Jlss Julia Rose lu
this character of Friday evening;
Kitty Skylark, a singing spinster, was
characterized in a meritorious manuer
by tho estimable Miss Clara Ault, whoso
happy disposition and sweet voice
made her acting of Kitty Skylark all
that could be expected. Her easy
grace and generous disposition to Peter
Plukoy, the bashful bachelor, made
her a favorite with the oudience; Sarah
Snare, the insinuating spinster, was a
most unnatural character to so esttml
able and almable a young lady as Miss
Irene Fenstermacher, yet the part was
excellently performed and the fine
points were well brought out; Jessy
Meadows, a romantic spinster, by Miss
Lou Buhrham was good. Jesse Mea
dows' quiot, demur, thoughtful, roman
tto lu the disguise of a poor girl won
the love of Charles Chester, tho mys
terious bachlor. Miss Buhrham ably
filled this character with a naturalness
and grace that made her acting a
pleasing success. After all the com
plications of "Slngla Life" the curtain
rung down on a scene of perfect hap
piness. Tho fluctuating bachelor and
tho vilified spiuster had made up; tho
women hating bachelor aud man hating
pinster had decided to hate each other
for life, but were willing to "jlne'
hands; the bashful bacholor and the
singing spinster, were linked for better
or for worse; the 6elMovlng bachelor
and the Insinuating spinster felt that
life would be a void without the pre
sence of the other and they too were
side by side; the mysterious bachelor
and the rqmantlo spinster felt that life
-would be a blank, that "Single Life"
was without joy and that thev too
would join the great majority.
The Lehighton Orchestra made the
intermissions delightful .by tho rendl
tlon of choice music Miss Clara Ault
sang a protty song and was loudly ap
plauded; G. 0. Clauss scored a hit in
the siuging of " ll'here the Chicken got
tne Axe," and Allen Peters rendered a
Columbian song with success.
Following the play, those who had
taken part, together with the Alpha
llub, of Mauch Chunk, were enter'
