.. the highball I " added a member of tho Daniels company In the party. v 'From Chicago comes this direful tale, which seems " too good to be true ": - The company which Is playing " A Little Outcast" at Hopkins's arrived late. This is nothing unusual, for trains, especially theatrical trains, have bad habits la regard to promptitude When the company finally reached the theatre It was discovered that the baggage was missing, and It was soon learned that the baggage car containing all the costumes of the performers had been left on a siding at Akron. Ohio. Accidents of this kind, alas, are also far from infrequent with dramatic aggregations. ' Time was flitting. The audience had arrived. Up in the gallery the small boys were drumming with fist and heel. It was evidently a case of ca In the street clothes, a trick which - has been done before, and done successfully. As luck would have it, the play Is one In which nearly everybody can wear his or her ordinary apparel, and hence - the lack of costumes could be bridged. One performer, however, and that one the most important of the bunch, was stranded high and dry. The stranded ona was Ann Blancke, the petite leading woman of th show. Miss Blancke plays a boy's part ra the drama. Everything she had In the way of stage attire waa back In the missing car. She stamped her feet, and shook her small head. Manager Fennessy knit his brows and pondered, but could not relieve the strain. Suddenly Miss Blancke had an Inspiration. " Catch me a boy," she said, "and see that he Is a fat kid. I'm well, rm small, but-l'ra plump, so catch a fat one! " - " Mr. Fennessy and a stage hand went forth, and soon espied a trim youngster, deep of chest and fat of limb. They laid hands upon him and strove to urge him toward the stag door.- The boy. protested. - " "W need your clothes," cried the anr lous Fennessy. . " Z need 'em myself, Leg go my neck! " yelped the boy. - " But we'll pay you for tha nse ot your clothes." - " Don't want to lend 'em. I'm rein flah-In'l " walled the lad. But strong arms were upon him, and he was dragged to a dressing room. Wild sounds of strif and Juvenile shrieks came from that room for about ten minutes. Then Mr. 1-ennessy emerged with a suit of boy' clothing on his arm. He conveyed the suit to Miss Blancke's room; the small actress tried It on, found It a perfect fit. snd flew forth Just in time for th opening scene. And all throta-h that play an indignant small boy. in blue underwear, sat howling in a deserted dressing room, and even the A which was handed him at the close of the performance - did not assuage his wounded dignity. . ... FRANK DANIELS'S NEW PIECE. . Sftcial t$ Til Nrm York Timti. . - BOSTON, Oct. 18. An audience that filled tha Colonial Theatre tonlght enthusiastically applauded Frank Daniels and his company tn the new musical comedy. " The Office Boy." Messrs. Epglander and Smith have made a very happy vehicle, a company combining beauty and cleverness has bean fathered, and Mr. Daniels himself has liberal opportunities for drollery. Repetitions were demanded of all the members, some many times, and the performance wss protracted until a late hour. Mr. Daniels's part la that of a boy in a lawyer's office who is mistaken for his cousin, a celebrated Jockey. Louise Gunning, who was married In New York on Bun day and who looked radiant and happy, made th vocal success ot th evening, while Eva Tanguav created a sensation by her dancing and character singing. Two of the many taking numbers are Mr. Daniels's songs "rn on the Water Wagon Now " and " I Thought Wrong." Rehan and Skinner at Atlantic City. . Spttial t Tk Srw York Timit. ' -ATLANTIC CITY, N. X. Oct. 1 ft. The reception at Young's Pier Theatre to-night ot the Rehan-Sklnner combination In " The Taming of the Shrew" was most cordial, and the open commendation of th Individual work of Miss Rehan as Katharine, -and Mr. Skinner as Petruchlo was strongly marked. - The attendance was very large and the audience was vociferously enthusiastic Among others attracting special attention were George Clarke's Christopher Sly, and Edmund Breese's Lucentio. , ON LOCAL BOWLING ALLEYS.
