the other day, The piles were of oak
and run from 20 to 40 feet in length;
and as 40,000 of them are needed for the
big pier that the P. B. & L. E. Co. is
building at Conneant harbor, besides
several million feet of 3-inch oak plank
ing, the contract will make quite a hole
in our oak resources. The pier will be
70 or 80 feet wide, and over a 1000 feet
long. The sides are being made of
several thicknesses of piling, and the
centre will be filled in with stone and
ground. The cars will be run out up

"DARKEST AMERICA," FEB. 24.
"Darkest America," by Frank Du
mont, and under the direction of Al. G.
Field, is without doubt one of t'ne great
est successes of this season. Last sea
son "Darkest America" was put on the
road as a purely Minstrel entertain
ment. and the success with which it
mot led the proprietor, Mr. Fields, to
lay plans for a more elaborate enter
tainment this season. Accordingly he
appealed to Mr. Dumont, the well
known minstrel manager of Philadel
phia. That Mr. Fields did not misplace
his confidence the public can plainly
Mr. Dnmont is something more than
a minstrel manager, although he enter
ed minstrel ranks as a boy singer thirty
three years ago and has tieeji identified
with minstrelsy ever since. Mr. Dn
mont was with the California Minstrels
when that famous organization was at
its high tide of popularity and for the
last ten or eleven years has been mana
ger of the Eleventh Street Theatre in
Philadelphia, the only theatre in the
country where minstrels hold the boards
season in and seasonal. Mr. Dumont's
success has not all been achieved in
minstrelsy, however, he has distinguish
ed himself by writing several success
ful comedy skits, the best known are
"A Parlor Match" and "The Rain-
Makers." "A Parlor Match" was origi
nally produced under the title of "A
Book Agent" but did not prove a big
success until it had l»een restamped Tin
der the title "A Parlor Match" for that
inimitable team, Fans and Hoey. "The
Rain-Makers" has lieen a money-win
ner in the hands of Donnelly and
