The Thames / Evening Star, 1st June 1888
Cleave, and Hall,
The dramatic temperance entertainment given by Mr and Mrs Harriion last evening
in the Oddfellows Hull was very successful, those who were present being highly
pleased with the performance. In delineating the several characters in the temperance
drama entitled " Examaple V. Precept," and also in the piece* " The Father's Broken Vow,"
"Drink," and "The Livin» Monument," they were very clever.
Mr Harrison, although now a total abstainer, was fully at home in the character of
the drunkard, frequently amusing the audience with his witticism,
showing he had not forgotten all bis funny sayings when travelling as " Max Rinkle."
Mrs Harrison also was specially good in the pathetic parts, and in her rendition of
the songs " Father Come Home," and " Where is my Wandering By to-night," she was
greatly applauded. The duets, melodies, and recitations were all well rendered,
and the tableaux were very effective.
Mr Harrison, at the close of the entertainment, thanked the audience for their
attendance, and informed them that Mrs Harrison and himself were under
an engagement for the Waikato district, and as far as Te Aroba,
after which it was very probable tbat they would return to Auckland via the Thames,
in which case it was likely they would give another entertainment here in about a
Miss Bateman played the accompaniments throughout the evening in a
very efficient manner.
In the Salvation Army Barracks tonight at 8 o'clock Max Rinkle the converted clown
and his wife will discourse on " The Salvation Army Life Boat."

Max Rinkle, the reformed clown, assisted by his family,
will give a grand spectacular temperance entertainment in St. Paul's Hall,

This entertainment is similar to that given by him in the larger Australian centres,
concerning which the Rev. A. R. Edgar, of Melbourne, seays: —
"Mr and Mrs Max Rinkle gave us a spectacular temperamce entertainment
in Wesley Church to a large congregation We can recommend the same to any church
or society wishing to spend an entertaining and profitable evening".
In order to meet the expense of advertising and rent of the hall the
nominal charge of 6d is being made for admission.
