    • Huse Morgan, manager of the Empire Stock Co., is in our city making arrangements to play his company here for a week. Some years ago Huse organized a company in Sidney and gave an entertainment (?) in Hamburg which so disgusted him that he fired the whole company. At that time he told his audience that if he ever gave another entertainment in Hamburg he would be sure that he had a first class company before undertaking it, and he now informs us that he is ready to redeem his promise, as his present troupe is first - class in every respect.--Hamburg Sunbeam.
