MUSIC—MIRTH—MIMIC—WIT POETRY—ORIGINALITY The Musical Favorites, a company of four, is made up in many ways of a most remarkable personnel. A perusal of the sample program on another page of this circular will make extensive comment as to versatility unnecessary. And this versatility is not confined to music. Readings, imitations, humor and original stories, calling forth uproarious laughter, are also a part of each program. ARTHUR LOVE Arthur Love is often referred to as a distinguished caterer of happiness and again as an unrivaled dispeller of the blues. He is a writer, poet, composer, soloist, reader and humorist, and better still, his songs, stories, poems, sketches and incidents are original. His stories also contain morals. He could give the entire evening himself. For years he did give a full evening's program alone. He impersonates. He is a facial artist. He is also a ventriloquist, pianist, organist, violinist, banjo and mandolin player and soloist on a dozen other instruments. GEORGE L. McNEMRY Mr. McNemry's xylophone music is one of the features of the evening. The instrument which he uses is said by the manufacturers to be the finest ever turned out by them. Mr. McNemry also plays that beautifully sweet-toned instrument—the saxophone, also the mandolin and banjo, and is a composer, a vocalist and musical director. LENA L. LOVE Lena Love adds to the evening's entertainment with her soprano voice, while she also plays the cello, mandolin and banjo and is a reader. MINA McNEMRY Too much can scarcely be said as to Mrs. McNemry's piano work. It is often referred to as marvelous. She is a conservatory graduate with honors. She also plays the xylophone and as a vocal soloist possesses an alto voice. BETTER QUIT YOUR KNOCKING By ARTHUR LOVE Better quit your cruel knocking, Better quit the knocker's club; Better far, become a spokelet In a more deserving hub. Better shed your little hammer, Better throw wit far away: You have done your share of rapping— Can't you see it doesn't pay? Better far you quit your thumping, Better stop your little gong; Better change your pounding tactics, Better sing a cheerful song. Better cease to be a piker, Better quit your peddling gloom; If you don't, Old Nick will take you, Down to hades to your doom. No limit to their accomplishments.— Cincinnati Enquirer. Surpassing and surprising programs.— Buffalo Courier. Arthur Love's entertainment was rich in quality and variety. Some idea of Mr. Love's versatility may be gathered from the fact that he plays well on piano, organ, violin, banjo, guitar, mandolin and many other musical instruments. The entertainment was highly enjoyable.— Dennison Herald. Arthur Love drew an appreciative audience and from the continuous laughter and applause the program was highly enjoyable.— Dallas News. The house was crowded to hear and see Arthur Love last night. His original songs, solos, impersonations and fund of wit proved a decided hit with everybody.— Houston Press. The house was crowded, something infrequent. Mr. Love captured his audience and kept them in a state of merriment.— Houston Post.
