Albaugh's Opening- Next "Week.
All tho boys will bo out in force on Monday
ovening, September lj when pretty and piquant
Fay Templeton opens tho season at Albaugh's
in her new burlesque of "Hendrlck Hudson."
The piece, which ,wis 'written by William Gill (
and Robert Frasei", 'authors of "Adonis," which
made Dlxey famous, is said to bo full of fun
and diversified Wlth capital specialties, while
tho costuming and stage setting are dazzling in
their brilliancy. The frolicsome Fay is sup
ported by a strong array o comedy and bur
lesque talent, including Edwin Stevens, the fa
mous buffo comedian; Toraa Hanlon and Alice
Carle, vocal prima donnas; Estelle Mortimer,
Eva Randolph, and Florence Barry, highly
accredited burlesque artists; Rose Newham,
English 6klrt-dancer and sensational high
kicker, and Alf C. Wheelan, Charles Ktrke,
and Edward Schnltz Edwards, character come

nounces that so far as the pleasure of seeing
heaps of jewely goes, tho public will bo grati

toms officers in New York recently she still has
a blazing array of precious gems.
The Bijou's Opening Card.
New paint, gilding, and carpets have made
the interior of the cozy Bijou Theatre look very
inviting, in anticipation of tho opening of the
new season on Monday night. Manager Eastoii's
opening bill is "The Broom-maker of Carlsbad,"
with James Reilly In tho leading rOle. Mr.
Rellly is a vocalist something on the order of J.
K. Emmet and W. J. Scanlon, and his acting
is to be full of the fun, pathos, and sentiment
that characterize tho work of those artists.
During the play be takes a German and an
Irish dialect 1 Die. Tho play is full of now songs
that aro of the simple, tuneful stylo that tho
public always appreciates.
Next Week's Bill at Kcrnan's.
Sheridan and Flynn's Company will make its
first appearance on any stago at Kcrnan's to
morrow night, when a uumber of new artists will
also mako their appearance in tho garden. The
reputation of Sheridan aud Flynn does not de
pend on the most successful song of tho day,
"Down Went McGlnty," which they wrote, but
is bused on a broader foundation of talent,
which finds its sticngth in delightful Irish
eomedy. Their new act is said to eclipse all
former eilorts. Tho groatest of American
jesters, James F. iloey, Is on tho list, and
Sromiscs to fully sustain his reputation. Miss
Ilnnle Lee, who60 handsome face, shapely
figure, and rich voice have won her tho title of
queen vocalist, always has a number of tho
latest and most popular ballads. Carr and
Tourgee, the famous and peerless musical artists,
present an enteitalnmeut which is tho most
amusing aud enjoyable combination of mirth
and music ever attempted. In Dutch character
itho groat Fields Is without an equal. Carrie
Ezier appears in a number of pretty characters,
in which her perfect figure Is seen to advantage,
aud dances with great skill and raro grace.
Tom Pcasloy and Hattlo Irving, who appear In
n neat little comedietta, aro taloutcd artists.
The Glenroy brothers, in "Fun In a Gymna
sium," present tho funniest burlesque sparring
net on record. Lewis and Gillctt, tho acrobats,
perform a number of daring feats, as well as ac
complish tho most difllcult head-balancing.
Georgo aud Mario Nelson present one of tbeir
brightest sketches. Among Sheridan and
Flynn's new songs aro "I Novur Liked O'Rcgan"
and "When McGueken Won tho Goose," intro
duced iu their latest extravagauza, "Two Old
Spoits." New features and span lug in tho
.summer garden. No advauce; one ticket to all.

Tho sad death of Manager Pat Harris, whoso
theatrical ventures In Baltimore, Washington,
St. Paul, and other cities were among the most
important iu the country, will not in nny way
affect the business of tho various places of
amusement which ho controlled. Tho Bijou
in this city will continue its prosperous career
.as before, aud tho other links of Mr. Harris' the
atrical chain will not be diopped. The widow
of tho lamented manager in a capable business
woman, and she has an experienced corps of
assistants In Mr. Tunis F. Dean, Mr. Brittou,
and Mr. Easton, all of whom aio well-known
heiu through their connection with tho Bijou at
different times. Mr. Dean is now at tho Acade
my of Music, Baltimore, Mr. Britton is general
manager, and Mr. Easton is iu chargo of tho
Washington house. Mr. Harris hail been ill
for eighteen mouths before his death, and dur
ing all that time Mrs. Harris had looked after
his extensive business interests with success.
Francis Wilson has much tho biggest kind of
a hit with his new opera, "The Meny Monarch,"
.produced at tho Broadway Theatre, New York,
last Monday night, and Washington talent had
no Inconslderablo share In tho success. Pro
fessor John Philip Sousa, of tho Marino Band,
as already announced in The llniui.u, mado
tho orchestration of tho now opera and his
work was spoken of In flattering torras by tho
Now York critics, whllo Wilson himself was
enthusiastic about it. Tho greatest laughing
hit of "Tho Merry Monarch" was. moreover,
made by two small but nervy Washington
artists, John and Jesse, tho colored mokes,
whoso approaching debut In tho metropolis was
announced in last Sunday's HnitA.i.D. When
tho pickanlnies ndyanced to the front of tho
stage at tho Broadway Theater Monday night

Boston, Aug. 20. Tho nnclont city of Bos
ton was in a state of pleasing distraction during
last week. Indeed, such goings on were never
seen before In a staid Now England community,
at least not since that precious load of cold tea
was brewed in Boston Harbor, and everybody
broko out early tho next day with a sudden at
tack of rebellious fevor. Don't tell mo that tho
"peaco movement" is likely to bring in tho
mcll'onnlum soon, when thousands of flags,
streamers, and bunting aro flying from flag-
staffs over our cities, decorate shipping, and
adorn seven-story houses from pitch-roof to tho
pavement with a gorgeous array of red, white,
and blue, and, when4 every man, woman, and
child wears tho national colors 1 Onco tho
male human bolug thought ho had a monopoly
on tho badge as a decorative symbol, and tho
G. A. R. now onjoys his Loyal Legion star with
five points, his division badge, his corps badge,
his regimental colors, and his national colors,
his Stato colors, etc., to say nothing of all ho
can pile on in tho way of decorative ribbons,
stars, stripes, tassel, and gilt that 'havo a Ma
sonic signification.) Tho badge, however, Is no
longer masculine in gondor. It shines and
decorates as grandly and profusely tho well
rounded breast of wife, mother, or sweetheart
as the manliest bosom of men; and the W. R.
G. (that's feminine for woman soldier) wears
no less than seven emblems, testimonials of her
relations to tho now order of things, an order
which enables a good woman to bo ns patriotic
and helpful to tho old soldier as tho soldier who
marched away to battle.
Tho typical Bostonian thawed out his hospi
tality and dispensed, it with a lavish hand upon
tho surviving saviors of these United States. It
was a sight to behold these peoplo from distant
States roving around this quaint city of crooked
streets and hunting up historical objects of In
terest. Ono party composed of men and women
visited Bunker Hill Monument, and were over
heard bewailing "that they forgot to look for
the place where tho gallant Warren fell and was
buried." "Tho truth is," ono said, "wo were
having such a good timo together that wo for
got all about that brave young man."
Of course all theso happy pilgrims got lost a
hundred times a day and had to be found by tho
police and faced about in tho direction they
ought to go. The police and other citizens got
qulto used to performing this kindly ofllco. Tho
other morning three ladles wearing corps badges
boarded a Tremont horse-car, and ono of them
desired the conductor when passing the Com
mon to let her off at Park-street Church, and
wondered that he paid no attention to her nods,
winks, waving hand, or other signs of a desire
to uo lanueu. no simply smueu complacently
and went ahead until arriving in front of Tre
mont Temple, when ho rung tho bell and
stopped with "Here you aro, raa'm." "Well,"
she replied, somewhat astonished, "I do believe
that you conductors think you know where I
ought to go better than I do mj'self." "Of
course I do," said he; "all you womon with that
