Music last evening and gave the popu
lar Irish comedlau a rousing welcome
when be made bis appearance as Con
McFadden In "The Hustler." Mr.
Keruell entertained his audience us
only lis can. He had a new batch or
jokes, and all nad the redeeming quali
ty of being new quite a refreshing oc
currence In these days, when faroe
companies all use gags of 1888 vintage.
Mr. Kernell was aurronuded by a
number of very capable performers.
Gus Mills in a female character was
very good, but at times he forgot be
was assuming a very difficult role and
marred his work by resorting to
methods not at all in keeping with tne
part. James F. Cook and James E.
Smith shared with John Ktrusll the
honors of the -veniiiE. Their acrobat ic
work was of a high order and wss
greatly enjoyed by the audience.
