Bob Miller's moustache retains its faded color. We wonder that he does not try shoe blacking or shoe polish, and thus give a dark shade to his upper lip.

Eight minutes are allowed in which to win smiles, bouquets and undying glory. When your little song is ended you will be tenderly tipped off the boards into the arms of "pa" and "ma" and thence out upon the "arenar" into the arms of - .
