SAW "A HOT OLD TIME."
Large Audience at the Grand Last Night Despite Bad Weather.
Bad weather did not keep a large audience away from the Grand last night,
and "A Hat Old Time" seemed to give pleasure to all. Among the best
specialties were the songs and dances by John and Bertha Gleeson,
who are about the neatest team ever appearing here. Anna St. Tel
in dances proved decidely entertaining.
