Newsboys to the Shows

Carrier Boys of Messenger go Through The “White City” Last Night.

The newsboys of the Messenger office, about twenty-two in number, were treated to a visit to Parker’s White City last evening through the courtesy of the management. The boys first “took-in” the Eruption of Vesuvius show; next the Creation show and the Novelty theatre. At the proper time they all filed into the Bagdad tent and were shown to excellent seats in the reserved section. The performance of Bagdad was hugely enjoyed by all the boys present as was quite evident from the expressions on their faces. The boys say that McCabe, the Irish comedian made the greatest “hit” with them.

On account of the storm, it was impossible to continue on their rounds after the Bagdad show was over. It is needless to say that the boys appreciated the privelege of “going to the show” and they were not snow in expressing their opinions in the loudest terms.

The heat of yesterday did not seem to effect (sic) the evening business very much. The crowd was large and as the storm did not come up until the Bagdad performance was well over, everything went along very well.
