Blizzard or no blizzard, it seems that the aunouncement of Ezra Kendall's appearance in a new conceit, entitled "A Pair of Kids," at Havliu's Ttieater, was enough to crowd the auditorium of that cozy houae both at the matinee and night performances yesterday with an audienoe whiob fairly howled itself hoarse with laughter. Ezra Kendall is the new departure in comedy characterizution, and in his distinct liue is as much a shining light fis Harry Dixey or Nat. Goodwin. As "Jiles Button" Mr. Kcndall furnished his audience with a modern "Solon Shingle which kept them in a roaring good humor during the entire perfor manee. There is a quaintness about him that is perfectly irrsistible, and you laugh before you really know what it is all about. If there is any magnetism in a shock of f rowsy gray hair, which persists in climbing over the top of a bald pate, Kendall has a whole stook of it. His support is unexceptionally clever. "A Pair of Kids" is full of good things from beginning to end, and wc would advino all to see it. - Cincinnati Enquire. Mr. Kêudall will appear at the opera house Thursday evening, Oct. 21.
