Will Give a Good Show
The "Stop, Look, Listen" troupe
came in tnis morning irom uamcs-

last night. The Gainesville Sun says
the show was a very good one and
that it was given at the Baird theater
to a large and well satisfied audience.
The Sun comments: "There was a
wealth of wonderful view, plenty of
entrancing music and a troup of
beautiful girls. The costumes of the
chorus and principals are full of har harmonies
monies harmonies of line and color. Particu Particularly
larly Particularly beautiful were the scenes laid in
Honolulu the ocean ultamarine, the
beaches and the coral, islands, the
green palms all were pleasant and
restful to the eye. There were also
fetching "gowns on graceful dancers.
The performance at the lempie
this evening will probably draw a
eood audience, and if the show is, as
it is claimed, better than last year,
all who see. it will be well pleased:

making unnecessary faux pas. At any
