Western, Lucille and Helen

The Western girls—Lucille and Helen—are having tremendous success at St. Louis in their “great Protean characters” in the Fast Men.—

Helen’s benefit night was the occasion of an immense audience, and Lucille has knocked somebody so frigid that he relieves himself by a little doggerel thus:

“Though you leave us, sweet Lucille,

Within our hearts your form is placed;

Your memory we will cherish still,

With the merry piece your beauty graced.”

“We love you for your gentle main;

We love you for that sunny smile;

We trust that life may ever seem

To you a garden without guile.”
