WE COME TO PLEASE

The Beedles and Johnnie Prindle have again (after an absence of two years) united their forces, and will appear at the Island Pond House on Monday, November 22, this time being styled as a PLEASANT PARTY.

This is the eighth annual tour of the company, and they are too well known to need more praise., but we will say that the new organization is a very fine one, and the construction of the new programme excels by far any heretofore given by them. It is rich in classical music, and overflowing with rollicking humor.

The entertainment opens with an extravaganza OUR PLEASANT PARTY, representing an evening party at the house of HON. JUSTICE NAPP, (not too much, but just e-nuff) of California, introducing Mr. Johnnie Prindle in one of his favorite characters, a north of Ireland Irishman. This is given in the finest parlor style event, everyone dressed accordingly. The programme throughout is full of rich and novel musical acts, original with Mr. Beddle, refined Irish and Dutch sketches, written expressly for Mr. Prindle, and his original act, "OH MY MYRIAH", a lamentation over the death of a loved one. The act is a side-splitting in its very nature, and if you believe in saying "laugh and grow fat" don't miss the Beatles and Johnnie Prindle's PLEASURE PARTY.

Obituary

The community is saddened by the death of Johnnie Prindle, which occurred on Friday. Mr. Prindle had been away on a professional tour, returning home a few days since, severely ill. He ran down rapidly till his death.

He was a very successful as a comedian, and singer, and very few men in the country were his equal in this line. He was a generous, kindhearted, and popular everywhere. His funeral was largely attended yesterday, Rev. Mr. Jennee, assisted by Revs. Christie and Miller officiating. The service was held in the church, and the attendance was large. Many Mason and G.A.R. men were present.
