THE TIME, THE PLACE AND
THE GIRL PLEASED CROWD
Reynoldsville people will ask noth
ing better of Manager Fisber, of the
Adelphl Theatre, than repetition of
such treats as be gave them Monday
night in "Tbe Time, tbe Place and the
Girl." The show was superb in every
way and pleased equally with its en
trancing music and rapid fire humor.
There was not a moment from tbe
time the curtain went up until tbe last
word of the comedy tbat tbe audlenoe
was not intently interested. The
special scenery carried by tbe company
was very effective while tbe stars of
tbe cast carried their parts well. It
was the breeziest bit of fun that has
been seen at tbe Adelphl yet.
