Among other Statures-are the Hubert Dyer & Co., who guarantee. to drive away the blues. A girl revue, the four Montfort'Sisters, -will furnish music as it should be played, ;and the Captain Marriott troop is something entirely new In the "way -of 'hazardous offerings. Bancroft and Algona will cross bats on the new tall diamond. There will be racing, continuous dancing and something doing every -minute.
