The home dfamatib company hud at) exciting experience at Bancroft last Thursday eventiigf. tfhey put on the " Ticket of Leave Man" and were giv ing it much better even than at Algona, and to the entire satisfaction of the audience until just before the last act when Mr. Bishop, who had not been expected to make any speech, went before the curtain and thanked his Algona and Burt auditors, and concluded by saying that the Bancroft people would not be visible through an opera glass by themselves. The members behind the curtain did not hear what had been said and so did not at once understand the tumult which arose. Several of the Bancroft people recognized in a moment that Bishop did not speak for the company and remained for the lust act. But the larger part left the hall, and one went so far as to blow out the lights, leaving the audience in the dark. A lamp was relighted and the play finished. The Register reports the occurrence and says: "The house was not as well filled as the company deserved. The Al go n a people, certainly did deserve a full house for their acting was excellent in every part. But the hoodoo, Bishop, put his cloven foot in it and spoiled the whole affair. Just before the last act he came before the footlights and courteously thanked the Algona and Burt people for their kind attendance, and then remarked that if they were removed, ' you couldn't discover any Bancroft people in the chairs with an opera glass.' This contemptible insult caused the people of our town to forget the courtesy due our Algona neighbors and amid a storm of hisses they began to get up_ and leave. Someone turned out the lights and all was confusion till the Bancroftites had left; then the lights were turned up again and the play finished — to a much smaller audience. It is a matter of regret that such a disgraceful scene should wind up the play, for everyone speaks in the highest terms of the performing of the young people, but such a rank stab for the time blinded the Bancroft audience to all else. As for Mr. Bishop we are reliably informed that only the fact that his wife was with h'im till he boarded the train saved him from being very much footballed. Our people realize that the other members of the troupe were in no way responsible for the utterance of their trainer, and we hope all will be forgotten andforgiven." A large number went from Burt on the special train that ran for the occasion. The Monitor reports the affair and says: A party of more than 25 of our young people attended the play at Bancroft last night and are more than pleased with the efforts of Algona's home talent, and we desire to congratulate them. Although all did extremely well, we feel that Kate Lantry and W. P. Jones are deserving of special praise for the manner in which they rendered their difficult parts. In thanking the audience Mr. Bishop made a great blunder for which the players and all Algona people feel truly sorry, and we trust that the Bancroft people will consider the source and take no notice of it. When Bancroft has any more good shows and will let us know we will promise a good delegation from Burt,' but it must be distinctly understood beforehand that the lights are not to bo extinguished until after the show is over. Lillte. A very social-time was enjoyed by all, Some of oup-merchants are rushing the poultry business lately and large quantities of poultry are shipped from our town every week. , J, W.
