A very extraordinary and entertaining entertainment was given here (Alamo) by Frank Ruffner Tuesday night. He hails from near Crawfordsville and is fairly at home behind the foot lights as a ventriloquist and rapid dancer of the “highland fling” order. He travels and buys numerous articles preparatory to making a “speck” at the city market at the close of the week. His drawing business is his evening show.
