A CHARfliNO SUCCESS. Reveries of a Bachelor Takes the Town and Wins Enthusiastic Praise—mss Hagill and the Galaxy of Local Stars Win Handsome Honors. “The Reveries of a Bachelor,” given under the allspices of the women’s improvement league and directed by Miss Florence Magi!!, of Moline, 111., was a pronounced success. The stage never looked prettier, furnished as it was ae a bachelor’s apartment. The living statuary was very line, equal to any ever seen oil any stage,and the calcium light effects were very striking. John Chapman did the part of the hardened bachelor to perfection while the visions of loveliness were presented for his admiration. 'The audience wondered what the real thoughts of the bachelor were. The costumes were tieautiful and appropriate for each part. The “new woman,” Miss J,aura VV by took, and the “old maid,” Mrs. Chaa, low ne, were especially good. VV hen the blushing bride appeared the bachelor's hardened heart w as seemingly touched at last, bot “she was all a dream,” as were all the others, so like all g<Mxl bachelors he took a nap w hen a dream of loveliness appeared iii a transformation scene. All the “reveries” appeared at once singing that catchy song, “The Bogie Man, but the only effect it had on him was a sonorous snore. 'J he country hand delighted everyone and challenged the smiles of tile most dignified. Everyone knew that “Chilly” would have something different but his X rays was certainly a surprise. The second part the piece was all deservedly encored. The hoop drill by twenty little girls with hoops covered w itll vines arui dowers was very pretty. The buys’ military drill was fine, also their “star was well acted and made a pleasing efiect. Miss Hayes’ number. “Since Birdie commenced herDelsarte,” was just suited to her aud she entered into the spirit of it with zest, lier histrionic talents showed to good advantage in this number. The tambourine dance was bewitchingly pretty and it seemed wonderful that they could learn it in so short a time, they having had only three rehearsed. The young ladies of the scarf dance were the bes* drilled; their costumes were beautiful in the colors of the rainbow. Miss Henrietta Emmons did the serpentine dance in this number and deserves especial mention. A great many thought this number the prettiest of all. Enough cannot be said in praise of the four little barefoot maids, Iva ami Gladys Burkite!!, Dot Smith and Alma Emmons, who sang the negro song “Don’t forget to tell me that you love me, boney.” These little girls ami the brownies took the honors of the evening without doubt. The antics of the brownies were funny to the last de gree.
